  1. Mack has been dropping back in coverage A LOT today. Confusing.
  2. I think this next game against the Dolphins is going to tell us a lot about the Bears. Having the bye week, they SHOULD come out with another great game plan and run over Miami. But theyre a young team, and it wouldnt be surprising if they lost some focus during the break and came out flat. Thats not the end of the world, but would pump the breaks on just how ready they are for the big time. Hopefully they pick up were they left off, of course, and I think that would say a lot about the coaching and team leadership. Mitch was obviously lights out, but man the O-line kept him clean against Tampa. Theres no way Miami lets him stand back there and pick them apart. It will be interesting to see if the lights really went on for him. Finding the right guy and putting touch on his passes made all the difference. Lets see if he can do it under duress.
  3. Thats what hes known for. If nothing else he need to break up the int possibility. Cant wait for the ball to come to him there.
  4. It was underthrown a bit but Robinson has to go up for that ball.
  5. By his logic nows the perfect time to trade Mack for draft picks to replace Trubisky. Stock at all time high.
  6. Dorsett down. First good news of the game for the Pats.
  7. problem is a journeyman makes you good enough to lose in the playoffs. They are all in on Trubisky making them a Super Bowl contender. which is the right approach in my mind. He might fail, but you went big. The Bears have spent a couple decades being good enough to lose.
  8. I saw two passes that he out some touch on (the Cohen lob and the Miller TD). He needs to build on that. He can make those nice touch passes on the move, but hasnt been able to in the pocket. Seems like nerves to me (hence happy feet). I wonder how much damage the Fox regime did to this kids instincts.
  9. Something i've noticed about Mitch so far- he can put the ball in spots where his receivers can make a play on it, which is good, but you dont see him throwing guys open or throwing to a spot very well or often (hence that missed touchdown down the sideline to Robinson). I hope that comes with experience, but if he just isnt seeing the field that way, thats a big problem.
  10. One other thing- if the Mack trade hadnt happened, the biggest topic of conversation today would be 'where was Roquan Smith'? They needed his speed and quickness when the Pack went into that quick pass offense, thats exactly why you draft him.
  11. You want to extend Trubisky in the middle of his rookie contract? No one player is 'the solution'. But Mack is the reason they didnt lose that game by 20.
  12. Alright, after seething for 12 hours, I'm gonna try to bright side this debacle. - Jordan Howard is great. His work on catching has paid off, making him a viable 3 down back. Will Nagy learn his lesson and stop being so cute on critical short yardage situations? That we dont know, but Howard is a gamer and he's going to RB1 barring injury. - Cohen is as dynamic as ever. Robinson looked like a WR1 when they targeted him. Gabriel and Burton looked good. Sims is the Josh Bellamy of Tight Ends, I dont know why he's in the NFL much less always ends up on the field somehow. -The defense obviously displayed their potential, but also displayed their short comings. They just looked gassed in the second half. Maybe they burned through so much adrenaline in the first half they just didnt have anything left, and thats not surprising when you arent in football shape because you didnt really play any preseason. Fangio totally failed to make adjustments in the second half. He's better than that, and the defense will be in better physical shape next week. If the offense can stop those 3 and outs it will also help. I dont expect to see that kind of display again. I put most of this on Nagy and Trubisky. And I think you can give them the leeway of a first time head coach and a young QB in a huge spotlight. Nagy totally outthought himself and absolutely has to learn the value of just punching the other guy in the jaw when you have a lead. Mitch has to control his excitement and cure those happy feet. Make the easy throws. All that being said, I dont see why those aren't curable ills. Its not a lack of talent that cost the Bears the game, its bad coaching and bad QB execution. If you would have told me 2 days ago the Bears would lose by 1 point to the Packers in Green Bay on Sunday night, I would have said, holy crap, that is an GOOD outcome for this team. They aren't ready to challenge for the division just yet, but they are in the conversation. Obviously that collapse cant be ignore, and it revealed some serious problems, but they also showcased some good things. Lets see how they do at home next week in another high profile game. Im gonna stay open minded.
  13. i dont know that that shot shows his heel touching the ground on the line...
  14. i could really use seeing this Verizon commercial 50 more times today
