  1. 2019 free agency targets

    Actually 26.7 not 28 million because you have to cut Parkey.
  2. 2019 free agency targets

    You've got 28 million in cap space now for 2019 with Floyd signed and cutting Acho and Sims. https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/tools/roster/chicago-bears/2019/ You absolutely need a starting K, OT and back up TE. Those are 3 must signs because you don't have them. You need a RB, G, NCB, and S via draft. FA or UDFA.
  3. 2019 Draft: Targets

    These kids get bad advise. The college coaches just want to win (which is their job) so they do what works easiest and fastest. Which is spread the field and let best athlete on field run around. When they put 8 guys up to stop him throw it to wide open WRs. Throwing from pocket against 7 defenders in 3 seconds is hard. It takes a lot of knowledge and reps.

    Terrelle Pryor is another one. He goes to a good pro style offensive coach in college, isn't a dumbass and he is a 10 year QB in NFL. He was more talented than Tebow or Alex Smith.
  5. 2019 Draft: Targets

    I remember I did a GM think here (old site) and SD drafter was really high on Cardale Jones. We had a lot of discussions about him. He was convinced guy was going to be a player. My position was bust. I'm still upset I missed on Mahomes though. That guy is so much better than I thought he would be.

    Duke QB on other hand, if it's same coach, is coached by a guy Peyton Manning went back to every summer to work with. If Duke QB has real talent he has probably been well coached. Might be worth a draft pick.

    Well when you start blasting people its a good way to come back and bite you in the *** for sure.
  8. 2019 Draft: Targets

    I'm just flabbergasted he did nothing to help Tebow become an NFL QB or even a better college QB. Smith either or any of his QBs it looks like. Tebow's throwing motion was just goofy. He was never going to be accurate throwing a football like that. Like Shaq trying to be a great shooter. Tebow could have made it in this league with properly taught fundamentals. He had brains, work ethic, charisma and leadership. He was never taught to properly throw a dang football. Step 1!!! You had 4 years with him and taught him zero passing concepts (reads) and zero fundamentals. Meyer just plays option football and passes off that (which works at any level, but can't work exclusively in pros) and good defense and can recruit his *** off. I can't believe some people say he should coach in pros. He can't. He doesn't have the ability. Maybe as a HC over coordinators that knew what they were doing.

    We are all wrong sometimes.
  10. Checking in with Trubisky

    They are multi year pros, they know fundamentals. They could coach it themselves. They could do clinics. It's just not being held accountable by coach in meetings watching film and/or just being lazy or not in good enough shape. So maybe coach is responsible in that sense. It is hard and unnatural for big men to make their bodies into what they call a duck pose for much of a 3 hour game. Like holding a squat. Or doing yoga. When you get tired or lazy you waist bend or get too high and reach or get your arms outside your frame. Then you get beat. It's what you see a lot or too much watching 2019 Bears specifically, Massie, Leno and revolving right guards. You see it in basketball too on defense. Basketball defense takes works and effort and knee bending, and big/tall men can struggle with it. Being an o linemen is a lot like being a defender in basketball. Fatigue makes cowards and fools of us all or however the saying goes. They are either not in good enough shape, being lazy or are hurt. Sometimes if you are confused on an assignment or defense tricks you it can happen too. Or if guy next to you gets tricked and you get stuck in no man's land of trying to block two people. In that situation you inevitiably block none. If I can figure out video editing I will do a youtube on it one of these days.
  11. 2019 Draft: Targets

    I just looked at some mocks and Ohio St. qb is no. 1 prospect? I didn’t watch CFB last year, but I would be really hesitant to take an Urban Meyer coached QB as really high draft pick. And they are talking up another guy who is 5-10? Thinking last year was year to get your QB Ny Giants. Guessing this years prospects aren’t that great.
  12. 2019 Draft: Targets

    Been neglecting OT in draft for a long time. Frankly they have been lucky Massie and Leno have stayed healthy.
  13. Checking in with Trubisky

    Agreed. But while I expect defense to be statistically worse, I think that will primarily be due to better competition, less turn overs (also due to competition) and perhaps more injuries. I think they can be as good or better in terms of winning games in actuality due to improvement in aggression and Smith, Nichols, healthy Floyd and perhaps Tolliver and a better offense to compliment them. As for offense nobody on OL had a terrible year, but a lot of people had sub par games at different times. Unfortunately, it only takes one or two guys doing that to wreck a game plan. A lot of it was laziness and/or bad fundamentals. That really, really bothers me. A little bit of it was missed assignments. Some of it was just opponent was better like Cox. Sad when your just turned 21 year old rookie was your most fundamentally sound player - And inexcusable. Daniels did miss a number of assignments though, but not that many from what I could tell. Not like I have broken down the games. Just a casual first viewing.

    Its little things that can win or lose titles. Margin for error is small. A kick that goes off 2 uprights for example.

    There you go. That is probably the guy.
