Re: Are we getting Black Monday II? Bears offseason thread

https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status/1365007710496948239?s=20 at least we made russell's list Yeah I just wonder why we made the list. Can't feel overly confident with the offensive staff, or the offensive weapons unless ARob comes back. HC and GM are on the hot seat. He did go to Wisconsin for ...

Re: Bulls '20-'21

Bulls are in an interesting spot. Obviously, looking like a potential playoff team and just 1/2 game out of the 4th seed in the East. But also obvious is that they likely aren't getting out of the 1st round of the playoffs as constructed. They have been on a great run without Lauri and Otto Porter....

Re: Golf thread

Well obviously my first thoughts are toward his health and it sounds like its not life threatening which is great. But from a golf standpoint, this is going to be hard to recover from if the injuries to his legs are as bad as they seem

Re: Blackhawks 2021?

Our old friend Artemi Panarin is in some trouble with the motherland. Hope everything is ok. I want to believe the allegations are false given the source but also want to take any allegations of this manner seriously.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

The majority of the games are still vs the NL and AL Central (AL Central is inter league matchup this year). And it’s not like the rest of the NL is overly loaded. There’s still the Marlins, Phillies, Rockies, Giants, and D’backs and even the Nats. Plus it’s baseball not like you can’t go win 2 of ...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I’m actually fairly excited for this season. Since the expectations are lower, sucking won’t disappoint me as much and being great will exceed expectations and seem even more enjoyable. Kind of like how last year started with the 13-3 start until we realized that they actually kind of sucked and the...

Re: Blackhawks 2021?

Hawks somehow with 2nd most points in the NHL. It's because they have played like 4 more games than anyone else, but still. I saw something that said they are 7-1-1 in their last 9, which seems fake but I can't recall them losing very much lately. I think they are 9-2-4 since they started out 0-3. ...

Re: Should we talk about the weather? (Hi-hi-hi!)

I read somewhere that snow is currently covering 73.3% of the continental US, which is the highest percentage since they began recording this back in 2003. And I believe Florida is the only continental state with no snow on the ground.

Re: Are we getting Black Monday II? Bears offseason thread

The reason Watt is available is because he's washed. Believe he was 6th in QB pressures this year. 85.5 PFF grade. The reason he is available is because Houston was over the cap and terrible. He was almost definitely going to be cut. His body is also breaking down and I’d take the under on 2.5 more...

A few weeks ago, after Mitch's sad post-insurrection speech got so much play among the people you'd expect it to, upthread I posted someone's tweet asking how he could thereafter do anything to prevent a trial + conviction. As I said at the time, don't ever dare Mitch to not be a duplicitous POS. h...

Could it be Pace has learned something and knows its on the Eagles? That is, wait it out explore other options, just too fantastic to consider - the Bears being smart.

i can't even imagine how frustrated zach must be playing with these guys He really sucked down the stretch though. Took over possessions that led to chucking up bad shots and then missed a layup with seconds left that would have given the Bulls the lead. It was not a super easy layup but it’s one h...

Also, Brady is getting all the headlines, but man, the TB defense just destroyed KC's offensive line That was amazing to see. But also reinforces that the Bears are not a QB away from contending.

Re: Are we getting Black Monday II? Bears offseason thread

I guess I don’t get why Cohen needs to go. I don’t love him but he’s really useful and isn’t paid all that much.

Bears better tag or resign ARob otherwise this is doomed to failure if it isn’t already
