Re: Lions at Bears Sunday at noon on CBS

Mack has 1 sack in his last 5 games. He's looked ... well I don't wanna say bad. He's still very good. Less than what he was last year is still a helluva football player. But definitely lesser than he was last year.

Re: Lions at Bears Sunday at noon on CBS

I fully realize they aren’t making the playoffs but have to keep talking about it if they are going to still hang around the border of contention You don't have to, you want to. The interior line played better with the switch, luckily they did since both tackles were trash. They definitely blocked ...

Re: Lions at Bears Sunday at noon on CBS

I think that's a pretty good measuring stick on where we are. They're good enough to beat one of the NFC's worst teams, at home, starting their backup QB. Trubisky is good enough to have moderate success against a bad defense. The defense can still hold down bad offenses, with the occasional blip. ...

Re: Lions at Bears Sunday at noon on CBS

Unfort. the wrong message will be processed after this game. It should be how valuable the QB position is that in only 3 good drives all game it can sway an outcome. Rather they'll use it as a glimmer of hope for a bad QB saving jobs. The message I got is that when the rest of the talent on offense...

Re: Lions at Bears Sunday at noon on CBS

Because I'm a ghoul who feeds off of misery, I'm actually interested in the Bears now that they're broken. And because I'm an idiot, I'm enjoying the discovery of the genre of idiots breaking down film on Youtube. I'm now convinced that Trubisky isn't The Problem. He's not a good starting QB, but he...

Bloomberg is irrelevant and has no potential voting base in the Democratic primaries, but it only feels like he's jumping in late because the whole thing started stupidly early this time around.

Re: Politics & Current Events

You'll never have a centralized progressive propaganda outfit with the success or reach of Fox News. The right wing in America is protofascist, eager to embrace a singular message and identity. The left is a diverse coalition of factions with broadly different goals and belief systems.

I keep wanting to talk myself into "Maybe Mitch can still be fixed. Drew Brees, Alex Smith, blah blah blah." But the play at 2:24 of that video just kills me. Three step drop, his first read is wide open, he's looking right at Miller, and he just nopes and starts happy-feeting around. 33 g...

Re: Bears @ Eagles, Sunday at noon on Fox

Why doesn't Mitch run any more? That was such a big part of his game last year. He's never going to be a pocket passer. When he got into trouble he'd just run, and at times last year I thought he was driving defenses crazy with that. He ran twice yesterday. Not that it's going to make him a great Q...

Re: Bears @ Eagles, Sunday at noon on Fox

Not that Mitch would have done anything but, this game was lost in the first half. For those that watched was Nagy playing it safe, not to lose, I've no faith in the QB mode? I can't even tell because even when there's open receivers downfield, Mitch checks down or runs with it. With one exception ...

Bryant trades are message-board fodder and maybe something for the columnists when they get bored around the winter meetings. It's not something the Cubs would seriously do.

Trading up next season just seems like throwing good money after bad. Their picks they have for 2020 right now are 2nd, 5th, 5th, 6th, 6th, 7th. There's not nearly enough there to get you a high first-round pick. So you're talking about the 2021 1st plus a bunch of other picks. What do you think th...
