Re: Bears/NFL training camp opens

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Best part about it was that no one moved it back, so the Rangers just went to where the circle was moved, rather than where it was moved from.

No one else got ejected.

Exactly. I would be annoyed if they went another 100+ years without a title, but damnit, they won one in my lifetime.

Re: Bulls offseason

I'm underwhelmed by the trade but I don't really understand the Zach Lavine hate aside from the injury. A 22 year old who averaged 18 points a game while being a good three point shooter is pretty good. Restricted free agent after the upcoming season. The Bulls should have the cap space to match an...

Re: Bulls offseason

The Bulls seriously aren't bringing back Butler, Wade, and Rondo for another go-round are they?

*sighs*

Can't wait for them to overdraft a plodding upperclassman out of a big name program who can't shoot.

Re: Last Bears game for 9 months @ Vikings

Get beat by 70. Anything to possibly get Pace reconsider bringing back Fox. Why do we think Fox is the problem again? Disinterested team, lack of running game despite high quality RB, crappy OC, feud with talented DC who will likely bolt in the offseason, poorly handled personnel situations (PED su...

Re: Christmas Eve: Washington Football Team @ Bears

If they draft either of those guys, I hope they will work out. I don't want to see the team return to QB purgatory any more than you do. But one guy is an injury risk and the other might be a project. We'll see Kizer is a freak of nature who has actually produced at the collegiate level. He needs d...

Yesss please finish like 3-13 and fire fox and draft a QB. Last years team was mildly enjoyable so I had a hard time wanting them to lose.

Plus Hoyer is a journeyman who couldn't hold down a starting job in Cleveland. I'm inclined to think he won't remain this good for the rest of the season.

Re: Week 5: Bears at Colts with a nooner

If some young QB were doing what Hoyer was, we'd be all, yeah, we're fine. If Garrrapolo was doing this, I'd be driving the release Cutler in the offseason bandwagon. So i dont get the difference. With Hoyer, this is pretty much his upside. If this were Garrapolo or Christian Hackenberg or whomever...
