  1. NFL eliminates cross-ownership policy

    This is so Mark Cuban can buy a team now, isn't it?
  2. Mitchell Trubisky's Future

    If thats how you choose to interpret my words, feel free. I'm optimistic about his outlook, but that doesn't mean I'm going to crown him... And again, the missed passes I'm referring to are an easy pass in the flat to howard that 100% of QB's in the NFL should make, and a few overthrown balls to wide open WR's. I'm not expecting perfection, I'm expecting progress on those easy throws that he's missing. Its fairly baffling because he can throw a beautiful ball deep and hit Taylor Gabriel in stride, then follow up by missing an easy pass in the flat to Howard/Cohen, then make a bad decision but thread the needle in traffic and nearly complete a throw that no NFL QB should make. Obviously I'm thrilled with what he's shown the past two games. That doesn't mean I'm ready to declare that he has no issues to fix before I will let my guard down on him.

    I'm not sure your point. A) I'm tempering my expectations of him, because he's gotta sustain his success. B) I said mostly positive things except for his poor choices on the deep pass to cohen, INT in the endzone, and missing a few passes. C) "A lot more good than bad... Trubisky kept them in it from start to finish" thats about as ringing of an endorsement as you can give in a loss.

    Another game with a few bad decisions, notably the INT in the red zone (though was preceded by a BS OPI call that took away a TD, so it shouldn't have happened, for multiple reasons), as well as a deep pass to Cohen which was a bad decision, but actually a well placed ball. Additionally a few errant throws, notably missing an easy dump off pass to Howard early in the game, and missing Miller (?) in the middle of the field early on. That being said, another game with a lot more good than bad, I was overall happy with his performance. Very unfortunate that the defense let him down and howard had a costly redzone fumble that caused the game to be a loss. Trubisky kept them in it from start to finish, which is all you can really ask.

    He is completely awful at everything he does and should not be on this team.

    You are correct that it is less so, and I had my attention divided by all the other parts of the defense yesterday so I will rewatch, but I do remember specifically watching him rush on a number of plays and falling flat.
  13. Bucs @ Bears, 9/30/18, 12 CT, GAME THREAD

    My only real disappointment with that game yesterday is that Floyd has not done much of anything as a pass rusher this year, in fact, he seems worse than in previous years. As a pure pass rusher, I think Lynch has been playing at a higher level so far in his spot action, was really hoping the addition of Mack would open up Floyd to improve a lot playing across from him.

    Thats my perspective, 100%.

    Every throw has a different context. In this situation, he should have overthrown it a tad, or better yet placed it in his hands in stride. Instead, he threw it in a way that made Robinson stop running, which disrupted the potential for the catch. In other throws, he should have had a little less arm and a little more touch in order to make the completion. These are not at all conflicting statements, context is everything.
