Re: The Chili has gone bad

Fairly interesting article. Says he was not able to connect at all with several players, talked about refining his message to get through to “millennials” etc. was a big fan of Zobrist though but declined to comment on everyone else. https://chicago.suntimes.com/sports/chili-davis-not-going-to-blam...

Re: Week 6: Bears @ Miami noon Sunday on Fox

I guess I also forgot to mention there wasn't a single holding call on the Miami offensive line in a game where I saw a lot of holding taking place. One was so blatantly obvious that I was 100% certain the play was going to be called back. Nope. Was it that play where the lineman held Mack for like...

Re: Week 6: Bears @ Miami noon Sunday on Fox

Obviously Mack was pretty freaking hobbled. Might be one of those injuries where he is able to play through it that day but can't play next week.

Re: Cubs Hitting Coach Search, Lapoce is Favorite and Maybe Hired?

Makes sense. He was a hitting instructor in the minors when Bryant, Schwarber, Javy, Russell and others were developing. Obviously he is aligned with the organization's philosophies and fits the "Cubs Way"

Trump looks about 70 pounds lighter in that painting. I'm sure the artist was scared on a public flogging if he didn't flatter him.

Re: Week 7: Patriots @ Bears noon on CBS

Someone on the Pats forum described us offensively as the knock off Chiefs and geez that may be apt Kelse is one of the top TEs in the league and the way Burton was supposed to be used was similar but in reality hasn't really been involved as much as I expected Hill has 2 potential comparisons, eith...

Re: Week 7: Patriots @ Bears noon on CBS

Brady has tormented the Bears throughout his career even though they only play ever 4 years. 2002: Bears blow a 27-6 lead in Champaign and lose 33-30 after Brady throws 2 TDs in the final 3 minutes 2006: Super Bowl bound Bears lose something like 17-13 at NE. Very close back and forth game throughou...

Re: Week 6: Bears @ Miami noon Sunday on Fox

Still trying to wrap my mind around the defensive performance today... It kind of felt like the second half of that Packers game ba lot of short drops and quick releases. Mack was invisible possibly because of injury. Plus they were able to get yards on the ground which opens everything up when the...

Huh? He had a couple of bad throws/decisions but ended with a 122 passer rating. Hes hardly the reason the Bears lost.


I don’t think he was bad but Nagy still didn’t trust him to make plays with the game on the line

Re: Week 6: Bears @ Miami noon Sunday on Fox

He made some dumb decisions, but Nagy’s decisions were third on my list of dumbest things Bears did Who the hell settles for a 53 yarder? Wasn’t it going to be a 55 or 56 yarder before 3rd down? Howard was running well that drive and if they don’t complete the pass they are really outside Parkey’s ...

Re: Week 6: Bears @ Miami noon Sunday on Fox

It was a team wide failure. Critical turnovers inside the 5 and while driving for the game winning score, defense allows 541 yards to a horsefeathers backup QB. No pass rush. Kicker has a critical miss. Playcalling was aggressive at the wrong times and conservative at the wrong times. They lost this...

Re: Week 6: Bears @ Miami noon Sunday on Fox

So the 2 bears losses:

-Blew a 20-3 second half lead to the Packers
-3 yards away from a 15 point 4th quarter lead.

Both losses on the road plus the Bears barely beat Arizona on the road. Still a young team that struggles on the road
