Re: NBA Offseason

Lots of talk that NBA will look to get rid of one and done. The current foreign and minor league landscape seem perfect for the opportunity to have a hockey style player development and draft system.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Sorry about the rant, but I really hate people and posters that complain about expansion (in any sport). It's always a good thing. I don't really care where they expand as long as they do their due diligence and go to a market that will properly support the team. Montreal and Portland/Charlotte see...

Re: Bears game 6: Joey Elite vs. Elite Rushing game 10/15 at Noon on Fox

if the bears somehow manage to win the next two games going into the bye, carolina and NO (they obviously will win next week and lose to new orleans as they always seem to when they've had a chance of pulling to .500 the past few years), is there any WR out there who might be available just to have...

Re: NFL Week 5

How are they not going to really suck? They are going to suck but already at 4 wins they probably will win 1 to 3 more games, they have the Browns, Bears, Vikings, Lions x2, Bucs and Ravens left on the schedule. There’s a win or 2 in there and that’s enough to keep them closer to pick 10/12 than to...

Can anybody tell me why Wright is playing 30% of the snaps when Gentry and McBride are about 90%? Develop the young guys.

Re: Bears game 6: Joey Elite vs. Elite Rushing game 10/15 at Noon on Fox

It's only one metric, but DVOA has the Bears as 19th in rush offense rank for DVOA. (Somehow they aren't 32 in pass DVOA) and their rankings look pretty much in line with last years rankings* (rush DVOA as 18th overall with Howard as 9th overall (10th overall this year)). *This year's rankings are s...

I hope so if you're running 40 times a game. Being that predictable doesn't make it easier to run. Not saying that. Just saying because of volume. When you run that many times, you're going to rack up yards. It's still impressive because of the 8-9 man fronts they see. How do we rank in carries in ...

Re: Bears game 6: Joey Elite vs. Elite Rushing game 10/15 at Noon on Fox

As desperate as they are, they still can't afford to lock in at WR. I think they can, assuming Trubisky is the franchise QB (also means WR is the only dire need) . I mean, drafting a WR #1 and signing one in the offseason isn't really "locking-in" so much as it is solidifying the position...

I know there’s been some injury bad luck but this team did a miserable job surrounding a rookie QB with WR talent.

Might as well just reach an injury settlement with him and go find some other young fringe WR that we can try to strike lighting in a bottle with.
