Re: Week 6: Saints at Bears Sunday at 3:25 (2weeks2stew)

its such a kick in the gut that Trubisky sucks. so much wasted time and wasted resources into that guy.

I'm half convinced I'll go to my grave and Jay Cutler will be the best QB the Bears ever had

Re: 2020 roster

I'm entirely baffled by how Q is in the top 30 of starter WAR (fangraphs), his numbers look so damn pedestrian. But then, so does everyone elses, thats the juiced ball for you

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Yeah I have to admit its pretty shocking to be here after where we ended the 2016 season at. Not saying it wasn't worth it (it totally was) but its been 3 seasons and there isn't much young talent to be excited about, much of the players we expected to get better got worse or stagnated, and our enti...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Yeah, 1.6 WAR (much of that I'm assuming is defense and 70+ odd plate appearances more) is not a minuscule difference - however accounting for salary and all that, well, its reasonable to say if there were concerns about Harper they're not entirely diminished. I wasn't as full-throated pro-Harper as...

Re: Week 5: Bears at Raiders in London (noon on Fox)

Kaepernick spent his last two seasons in the league being benched in favor of Blaine Gabbert and that was over 2 years ago with no football since then. He should have been in the league this time, but he's not the answer for the Bears right now. Yes I don't think he's actually very good, but I do t...

Re: Week 5: Bears at Raiders in London (noon on Fox)

I don't think you can say the trade for Khalil Mack was premature - opportunities like that just don't come around and you were taking a gamble on Trubisky, which hasn't really panned out. Mack on the other hand has *exceeded* expectations - very rarely does a big time trade like that for a player w...

Re: Week 4: Vikings @ Bears Sunday at 3:25 on CBS

is it weird and greedy that i feel forlorn that we have another Kick Ass Bad Ass Defense and another year of grinding games away with a below average offense?

its just like, version 378 of that we've had in the last 35+ years

If this is true, why would Zobrist come back to the team at the end of the year? Would be humiliating

Re: It's Maddoning

I kiiiiiinda feel bad for Joe because this current stretch is totally inconceivable and clearly not anything he himself is personally responsible for, but he's been a stubborn ass the last two seasons and has done a lot to sabotage himself. I don't think managers really account for a lot but I do th...

Re: Addison Russell

Russell is for sure gone now ain’t he? The team barely plays him, he’s been awful, Javy has taken his spot without question. All the Cubs accomplished by keeping him on board was to hurt their credibility with fans, further crater his trade value, and allow him to cost us a handful of games. Good st...

Re: Week 2 - Chicago Bears @ Denver Broncos - Sunday 9/15 at 3:25 on FOX

The offense being this bad is unacceptable. It’s unacceptable.

I’ve started to believe there’s something metaphysical going on preventing the Bears from having a good offense.

It’s kinda crazy that the Cubs added a hitter who has had one of the most unbelievable months of hitting in history, and lost like 6 games in the standings

I’ve been a Bears fan for 20 years and they’ve never once had a truly decent, consistent offense. Good lord it’s almost impossible to be as frustrating for as long as they’ve been (long before I was born)
