  1. He magically morphed into a starter for the Eagles... I dont think Foles is a world beater, but he's an upgrade from Trubiski and has the proven potential to make this a legitimate NFL offense, which is kinda important. You can squint your eyes and see an absolutely dominant pass rush giving the Bears the best defense in the league again, and a competent offense. That was all we ever used to ask for. If that is the Bears game plan, Foles was a pretty good choice. He comes without the baggage and ups and downs of the other choices out there. The guy took a team to the Superbowl and w
  2. The Bears are rapidly going to find themselves in a position where they have to trade just to get a veteran backup, let alone competition for Trubisky. One wonders if that was the plan all along and all this talk about Bridgewater is just a smokescreen.
  3. 'Teddy isnt a good QB, he just plays well in football games.'
  4. Shurmer just signed with Denver. Dont blame him, Nagy isnt giving up control of the offense or playcalling.
  5. I agree, but Nagy decided he was going to peg a square into a round hole come hell or high water. Picked up all of Reids worst instincts regarding rushing.
  6. Look at Tennessee as well. Looks like defense and running the ball can do pretty well. We keep discussing if Nagee is the problem or Trubisky/Pace. Why not both?
  7. This is what happens to any team that can't block a 3 man rush or tackle Ryan Tannehill in the open field.
  8. Last I heard Smith is still learning to walk again, but he would be the perfect guy. The thing is, the Bears are at an impasse. They have a QB they are committed to and coach/offense they are committed to, but the QB is not right for this offense. Something has to give. What the Bears options are: 1.significantly revamp this offense (and honestly they would need to take playcalling away from Nagy because he has proven himself fundamentally unable to cater his playcalling) to maximize Trubiskys strengths and hide his weaknesses. 2. have another QB at least on standby that
  9. "We have to get better at these critical positions and were going to explore every possibility to make that happen"? If i were a free agent, thats what id be looking to hear from a prospective GM. Not, "we still absolutely believe Shaheen, Floyd, and Trubisky are the guy we want playing for us"
  10. I was expecting some lipstick on the pig from Pace, but he seems to be straight up drinking the koolaid. I was not expecting this. Yesterday i thought you cant fire Pace without firing the whole coaching staff and cleaning house on personnel, but after hearing this... They have to fire this guy before he damages the franchise for another five seasons with bad second contracts for failed picks. Hes not rational.
  11. Christ, hes happy with SHAHEEN. Either hes just glad handing or we are screwwwwed.
  12. Pace is staying with Mitch and happy with Floyd. Take him at his word and the Bears may be on the cusp of murdering a whole bunch of money and cap space.
  13. I know Trubisky can do some things, especially on the move, but most if not all of those guys would have completed most of the 'botch' incompletions Mitch consistently makes. Thats a lot of money he left on the table some of these guys could pick up.
  14. Pace is 100% all in on Mitch. Theyll bring in somebody they can credibly claim he outplays in camp to 'boost Mitch's ego', much as they have kept any legitimate competition off the team for 3 years. Anybody recall a good NFL QB that needed his confidence protected to the extent of molding the roster to protect him from competition? I see no reason this will change.
  15. Never would have guessed the Bears defense would be such a big part of the problem this season.
  16. My single biggest pet peeve in football is lining up in press coverage and then not even putting your hands on the receiver. Ughh why.
