  1. Its not great Bob. The defense had 1 sack, 0 takeaways, gave up 2 TDs over 50 yards, and the Rams had to punt 1 time. Thats it. Everything that happened in the other phases of the game are beside the point. Bears invested most of their marbles on the defense and the defense is AT BEST average. That means AT BEST your team is average. And this isnt one game, this is basically what we've been seeing for the last season plus. Its time to recognize that this is officially a rebuild. Whatever aspirations there were to ride an elite defense with a just good enough offense and some good luck... thats just not realistic.
  2. My buckets are: -Kelce/Waller -Kittle/Andrews - Whoever is left in the 10th round
  3. I dont think they intended him to play more than one series.
  4. I mean, its backups against backups, so Fields should look good. But his decision making is what is impressing me. No red flags on bad habits, aside from a little ball security.
  5. I LOVE that drive for Fields. Scrambles with his eyes up field and makes the pass when the defense breaks down. Scrambles, nothing is there, runs for a couple yards rather than force it. Scrambles, sees the lane to the endzone, takes it to the house. That is exactly what you want out of an athletic QB. Thats what can make you great for a long time in this league, rather than a flash in the pan running QB.
  6. 2nd quarter, 1st preason thoughts: -Fields looks like rookie. Slow lining up and getting the ball snapped. Thats why they didn't anoint him starter. Give him time to learn the little details. - There hasnt been a Bears QB in decades that has this kind of arm. - I didn't know Jessie James was on the team. Thats a really nice pickup at a critical position in this offense with suspect depth. Injuries could bring him into the FF conversation. - Duke Shelly continues to be an improvement over Buster Skrine at nickle. - Vanilla defense looks vanilla, but fine. Far more interested to see what the more aggressive blitz schemes look like with new DC. - I dont need to see any more Javon Wims in my lifetime. I'll be 90 and he will still be on the roster.
  7. 1st quarter, 1st pregame thoughts: -Montgomery banged up on first carry. D Williams looks fast and hungry. Hmm. - Dalton made bad throws into good coverage twice on 3rd down. My shocked face. - Bears are bring careful not to ask too much of the Oline. Not much choice. - Surprisingly heard Robert Quinns name called several times. Unsurprisingly, none of it was because of anything he did on the football field.
  8. Rumor is Pace was talking to Denver about the 9 spot but turned down a trade that was the 20th, a second, third, and next years first. That was the kind of Pace overpayment that was scary. Turning it down and still landing Fields makes me feel better about Pace. Seems like he's learned his lessons- although maybe McCaskey/Phillips nixed it.
  9. Im happier with this as i think about it. Expensive but if it works its cheap. Done deal, sunk money, this guy looks like a winner.
  10. If hes a franchise QB, sure. If not, sets the franchise back another two years. So...
  11. Screw Pace.. this was the scenario where a QB drops and they STILL manage to overpay. Not surprising. Just disappointing.
  12. Bears traded up with Giants...here, we, go.
  13. This is the crux of it. I think its extra first round picks to move up and get any of these guys because of the multiple bidders. If any of them fall to 15 or so, maybe something more reasonable could be done. That being said, i dont buy there are 5 elite QB prospects in this draft. I think its a relic of league need and covid screwing up college season and the combine. Whoever the Bears have a crack at, if anyone, would probably have been a rated second rounder any other year. If somebody falls to 20, fine. If they try to move up... well thats so Ryan Pace I cant even deal with it.
