589 Pro Bowl
  1. Giant eye roll. I, and others, said Whitehair was better guard and Daniels better center. They should have just did it from day one. Whitehair and Long could have helped with line calls from guard spots. If you do it now it is going to be a set back in short term when every game counts, but probably better in long run. Just really pisses me off that they waited. Those are reps you are never getting back. Spring hasn't even started. It can be done. Do it now or don't. But don't waffle.
  2. 2019 Bears: How will it go?

    Sheesh, the Sports Media freaking loves OBJ. Browns are going to Super Bowl now. Amazing how he didn't help Giants that much last year. Raiders get no boost at all from A. Brown apparently. Not sure how OBJ is so much better than Brown. OBJ going to Cleveland is like Randy Moss going to Patriots. Come to think of it that wasn't even hyped like this. Moss was thought to be washed up at time.
  3. 2019 Draft: Targets

    I wouldn't say it is equal. Sometimes it leans one way and sometimes the other. Depends on how desperate the need is and who is doing the drafting. BPA is the goal for Pace and he has stated so, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do. Impact players make much more of a difference than need filling. He wants to fill needs in FA and draft BPA. Sometimes that isn't feasible. He has also stated that he feels he can draft a lot better when he has freedom to draft BPA. I also listened to guys on a Dallas Cowboys draft show one year predict about 75% of the picks as they came up in first two to three rounds just by looking at who was still on the board and looking at their team needs. Some guys go in other direction. GB drafted 3 WRs last year. Carolina drafted 3 corners one year to replace Norman. Baltimore will draft 3 edge players in same draft. They are playing odds that at least one will hit out of three they like.

    BPA baby. Everyone says it, few do it.
  5. Bears and Packers to open on Thursday Night Football

    This still cracks me up. Everyone who thinks my girlfriend looks like a dude get out. Cobb is still elite. LOL. He needs to write a new one for 2019.

    Please do.
  7. This Is Rival Talk v1.0

    Funny story. I coached youth football for a long time. Guy I coached with gave a post practice speech to a bunch of 12-13 year olds: Background: We had a lot of two way players and they would get tired in games. Especially the big guys. Coach: Look when you guys need a blow you have to tell me. Whenever you need a blow just ask me and I'll give you one! I'm on side of him snickering like a school boy.

    He'll be motivated. I'll keep tweeting him all the put downs you guys say here.
  9. Exposing the NFL's market inefficiency

    I tell Bears fans that Trubisky isn't well regarded outside Chicago. They are like you know he went to pro bowl right!?!? I get shouted down.
  10. This Is Rival Talk v1.0

    Dix, Bush, Blewitt and we might draft Gay.
  11. Packers Signing Preston Smith

    SF and Dallas played the real SB in NFC championship a number of years. Teams were loaded.

    Bears Packers opening NFL season in Chicago. Let the trash talk begin in March. Going to be a looooong wait. @vegas492 and I have a season long bet on best outcome. Are your bodies prepared for what is going to happen to you? LOL, took me like 3 weeks to recover from last years Packers comeback victory in the opener. Thought game was in the bag after first half. Luckily from there seasons went in different directions. You still got schadenfreude at way ours ended with Parkey miss. Another week or two to recover from that. Bad luck on the draft. We'll be mostly watching from sidelines. LOL. But you're going to find out that Dix is actually a good player with some talent around him. Dix pick 6 in week one would be so sweet.
  13. 2019 Bears: How will it go?

    Bears Packers opening NFL season in Chicago. Let's go.
  14. Packers Signing Preston Smith

    You guys had arguably best FA signing of all time in Reggie White. I was young, but I remember all discussion in media at time was FA going to kill Packers because no 'minority' would want to go to GB in FA. Then shortly after White signed and you guys won the SB.
  15. Packers Signing Preston Smith

    My comment was sarcasm directed at comment that NE doesn't move or release players before contract is fully realized. Kind of what they are known for. Every team does it, but Patriots famously do it to big name guys. They are ruthless. Drew Bledsoe, Garropollo, Seymour, Cooks, Ty Law, Vrabel, Branch, Mankins, Collins, Jones, Randy Moss, Lawyer Milloy ...
