Re: Bears offseason

I'm curious, from those who don't like Trubisky, as to what they see as the major knocks against him. Is it just the red shirt and one year wonder thing? Skill wise he seems to have everything, both physically and mentally (in terms of reading defense and going through progressions and such). He se...

Re: Bears offseason

Whats this crap about 1st round QBs being a crap shoot. Its a lot better than any other round. Also whos cares about next years class. You don't get to draft class worth of guys, youre drafting one guy. If that guy meets your criteria, why would you wait? People who wanted to wait didn't believe an...

Re: Bears offseason

Serious question for those that WANTED a QB at 3..... Why were you so intent on doing it THIS year? We already signed Glennon. The success rates of QB's in the 1st is certainly not great. The fact that in this case, it was going to require taking a guy higher than where he's at on most boards. Ther...

Re: Bears offseason

That was one of my points all along. We're just not in a great position to take a QB. We'll be keeping Fox and Co in 2018 now too, since the entire regime now gets a hall pass of some sort in 2017. Continuity is a great thing, we won't have that for Trubisky. Then, you've got to shoehorn your next ...

Re: Bears offseason

I've had some time to process not only the draft, but this entire offseason. And while I do like some of the moves (going in a legitimate direction at the QB position), I think overall there's not a ton to like. It just seems like Pace is trying to play both sides of the fence a little too much. Sp...

Re: Bears offseason

seems weird that we signed Cunningham and then used one of our 5 draft picks on another change of pace RB. I know Pace is a BPA guy (with a glaring exception) but RB is really not a position I would have expected us to draft especially with just 5 total picks and about 30 holes at other positions. ...

Re: Bears offseason

The mock drafts and post draft hot takes are exceedingly meaningless, so pointing to them to justify feeling one way or the other about what the Bears did yesterday is pointless. If Trubisky is a hit, then it will have been worth the picks. If he's not, the entire draft was a waste. That means at b...

Why the hell are reporters asking him why he didn't stay in college another year? He horsefeathering got drafted #2 overall. He was going to go in the 1st round no matter what. What kind of horsefeathering idiot wouldn't leave school in that case? they are trying to get a "i am very confident ...

Re: Bears offseason

I'm in https://twitter.com/SeifertESPN/status/858012438117142528 The ramifications of this are pretty huge. If Fox is cool with this, that has to mean he's ready to step down soon. No HC is going into the process of forging ahead with a #2 pick QB with no input into the decision. It's made sense al...

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

The book is all about the writing and the language and how it makes you feel. The story is nothing special. But the writing is so horsefeathering good. Doesnt lend itself to the movie form any more than Finnegan's wake would. My favorite passage: "the bleak and shrouded earth went trundling pa...

just out of curiosity, have any bears players tweeted about this? particularly one offensive lineman who is active on twitter but has me blocked? He retweeted Trubiskys tweet and apparently is going to call him "Rich" Cliff notes because hes made like 50 tweets in the last 18 hours. I mis...

Pretty cheesy video, but he better really have been number 1 on all those guys boards to do that trade.

Re: Bears offseason

I don't get the idea that it's too accepted to lie to other teams about offers, anyway. One can simply go to the source, find out your trade partner was lying and then that team's GM is branded as a liar and nobody wants to do business with him. tough to do when they all lie to each other, then sud...

Re: Bears offseason

I keep flip flopping my opinion on this deal after reading all the takes. I think overall I am slightly down on the move and here is why: I do like Trubisky as a player, I think he has the tools and has a high enough floor that he is probably going to end up no worse than an average starting QB. Bu...

Re: Bears offseason

The way people have generally used it, its a trait. That just doesn't make any sense to me. Guys starting for 2+ years is how you get a lot of tape and a lot of confidence in your judgement of that tape.
