Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

The last 5 WS winners won 81, 84, 71, 76, and 88 games the year after their title. Interestingly, the last 5 WS losers fared much better, winning 87, 95, 90, 93, and 93 games, which at least suggests if there's a hangover effect it's not (entirely) related to the duration of the postseason. too muc...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Re: Bears/NFL training camp opens

so trubisky and rodgers are both listed at 6'2" trubisky has looked a little short to me (not drew brees short), but I wonder if that's because of how much i've seen him standing next to mike glennon (and how tall jay was), but i've never really thought rodgers looked especially short. i wonder...

Re: Bears/NFL training camp opens

I do believe that if Trubisky shows well in the rest of the preseason that there is no reason for Glennon to start. Either Trubisky is your guy or he isn't, so why not give him as many starts to find that out as possible? the excitable irrational side of me wants him to start from game 1 and thinks...
