Re: Week 2 - Chicago Bears @ Denver Broncos - Sunday 9/15 at 3:25 on FOX

Pretty decent video here:


2nd week in a row Leno has been the worst player in this offense. Daniels probably number 2.

Montgomery probably the best player on offense right now,. Whitehair looking strong too.

Alex Smith-lite might be about the best case, with everything we know about Mitch.

Re: Week 3: Bears at Washington - MNF on ESPN (7:15pm)

it was meant to mean that Eli was hugely disappointing his first 3 years in the fact that he was just...mediocre. Now, Eli won a couple of Super Bowls-some would even say despite the fact his team was quarterbacked by Eli Manning. He does have that above Mitchell. But in the end, my only real point...

Re: Week 3: Bears at Washington - MNF on ESPN (7:15pm)

Pessimist. Almost every QB in recent memory was who they were by year 2, so Trubisky isn't improving. Optimist. By many passing metrics Mitch was basically a dead average QB in year 2 and added some additional value via his legs. This two game stretch is basically no worse than any average QB is bou...

Re: Week 2 - Chicago Bears @ Denver Broncos - Sunday 9/15 at 3:25 on FOX

I don't recall two missed passes. There was one that should have been a touchdown that was badly underthrown and while it did hit Cohen's hands, the defender got his hands in there to knock it out. I don't count that one as "dropped". this season, Cohen has had 2 dropped passes https://sc...

Re: Week 3: Bears at Washington - MNF on ESPN (7:15pm)

Eli Manning is the epitome of Mitch Trubisky through there first 3 years. Why would trading for him at the end of his career make any damn sense to anyone? I don't know what this means considering how incredibly different these two QBs are, but my god it will be a miracle if Mitchell somehow gets t...

Now his accuracy isn't what it was supposed to be, but I'm not sure he's some egregiously inaccurate passer. This isn't a one game issue. He's missed guys badly a lot. Somebody shared a video showing how awful he is when he has time to think vs other times when he looks great. I'll never forget (no...

Re: Mitch's bad throws: when I rewatched game 1 tape, a lot of throws that had looked bad live were really throw aways where the coverage sucked. Now his accuracy isn't what it was supposed to be, but I'm not sure he's some egregiously inaccurate passer. The bigger issue is definitely where he's jus...

Re: Week 3: Bears at Washington - MNF on ESPN (7:15pm)

The Bears have played two of the most boring games in history to start the season, and are somehow 4 point favorites on the road in primetime. Nobody likes Mitch but there's nobody else for the job right now. Yippee! Kaep's agent apparently reached out to 3 teams. That would instantly make this tea...

Re: Week 2 - Chicago Bears @ Denver Broncos - Sunday 9/15 at 3:25 on FOX

Tyler Bray was hitting UDFA receivers in stride time and again in the preseason. I know he was going against 3rd string defenses, but he was also being protected by 3rd string offensive line. There are only 16 games in a season. If Trubisky can't offer up something better than what we've seen so fa...

Re: Week 2 - Chicago Bears @ Denver Broncos - Sunday 9/15 at 3:25 on FOX

Also, can anyone explain why a delay of game penalty, followed by an offsides penalty leads to a 2 point conversion attempt from the 1? Shouldn’t the offsides have negated the first penalty leading to a 2 point conversion try from the 2? Or could it have been half the distance from the goal, thus a...

Nagy is definitely broke except on the one thing that we joked broke him. That turned out great.

So I wanted 15 QBs in rookie mini camp next year.

Re: Hultzen finally makes it; guy who looks at cameras DFA'd

I thought the Cubs' MO when signing reclamation projects due to injury was to nurse them back to health over a year or two and then trade them or let them walk in FA. Turns out that and the Cubs' sham medical staff are all some kind of elaborate ruse by the Ricketts to net some sweet, sweet medical...

We are trapped in a neverending cycle of anointing the Bears franchise QB.

I guess I had never heard that process articulated before. His comments from last night just kinda struck me as odd, like his hands were tied. I don't think the though process is odd, he's just a much more open book than Lovie or Fox were. And Trestmam would have probably gotten very philosophical ...
