it is painful to watch them try to call an offense around this quarterback

I have never ever seen a QB so helpless under pressure in my life. Like the pressure comes and he is completely unable to get rid of the ball. It's insane

Jay got sacked a lot but he could also dance around the pocket and could get rid of the ball quickly. Sure sometimes that caused him to throw off his back foot and/or throw a bad pass that was picked off but he could also find an open guy out of the corner of his eye for a big gain.

Glennon is just awful and my opinion of the FO is dropping by the drive that they saw him as a viable option. I swear Matt Barkley did better with just as horsefeathers a group of WRs

most of the time it's not even bad pressure, either. any semblance of discomfort makes him panic.

when you set up a screen you may want to have someone in the area to catch the ball

I forget what it was, to be honest. I think it was your reaction to me when I made the initial point of regression to the mean. But I haven't looked it up so I could be off there.


Yeah, but you were using it after 1 game and as a substitute for "law of averages." I mean regression to the mean is something that happens within a season, not from one to another. The mean itself is high at this point.

I don't think you really understand what regression to the mean actually means.

I want someone to ask Fox if he believes that Glennon gives the Bears the best shot to win.

9-14, 54 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT

He's produced 38 points in almost 3 games

Of those, 7 were in garbage time when the Bears were down by 30 and 7 were on a short field because of a muffed punt.

screw the short week crap. the packers have a bad defense. much worse than the vikings. that outweighs that "pseudo bye" argument.

i don't think i've ever seen a more deceptively high QB rating than his (whatever it even is)

3rd and 16 in a tie game with 5 mins left and his decision is to throw 7 yards down field to a guy who has 3 defenders in front of him.

Ok....

Pace has brought a decent amount of talent to the Bears in the draft. He's by no means an elite GM (lol) but I'm not pushing him out the door yet. Maybe others are that's fine.

Either way, he needs to get rid of Fox and/or start Trubisky before it's unavoidable for him to go down with the ship

He's not going to go down with the ship. He'll get to hire his coach.
