Re: Bears offseason

Also while it was a lot to give up for the #2 pick, the Eagles actually gave up more for the same pick a season ago (1-8 plus 3rd and 4th in 2016, 1-12 in 2017, 2nd rounder in 2018) Eagles moved up 6 spots, Bears just 1. Wentz is also probably the more highly regarded prospect? Yeah moved up more s...

Re: Bears offseason

Spent 4 picks on a guy who couldn't beat out Marquise Williams for the starting job at UNC. This logic is bad. Good NFL prospect and good college QB (especially in a spread scheme) is not close to comparable. Hell, maybe the best QB in NFL history couldn't beat out Brian Griese in college. Sure, if...

Re: Bears offseason

Guys guys guys, it's obvious that Pace coveted Trubisky, and thinks he's a franchise QB. He also knew that the Niners were trading the pick to someone so they could draft Trubisky. You think your franchise QB, your future, is about to get snatched up, you do what you gotta do. They're lucky that th...

Re: "horsefeathers looks like The Thing" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

his defense is not very good. no metric needed He seems entirely adequate out there Yeah, I mean, he's not going to catch anything especially difficult and he will look bad at times due to his build/lacking athleticism, but it's not like i cringe when the ball is hit to left. i expect him to catch ...

Jesus based on the layoffs announced so far, it looks like ESPN is stripping basically all their already meager hockey coverage except Barry Melrose (Scott Burnside, Pierre LeBrun, John Buccigross and Joe McDonald all let go so far).

Re: Cubs games on CSN can now be streamed

I haven't been able to figure out how to activate in-market streaming. Is there some trick that I'm missing? You might have to update the NBC Sports app to get it to work. If all else fails I believe you can stream at csnchicago.com. And of course like David said, you can't stream it if it's on WGN...
