  1. Checking in with Trubisky

    Oooooh good.
  2. Patriots @ Bears GDT

    I think the bears keep up, but ne is to smart not to keep up the short passing game after Miami did it effectively, and the New England run game is pretty good with white and the new guy. I feel like Bears only shot to win would be to be nearly mistake free, not sure we're there yet. 31 24 Pats

    You bring a neat perspective with all this data analysis, thanks!
  4. Checking in with Trubisky

    Ha! I once said I didn't think Amos was a top safety on another forum, and got skewered for it, but the only arguments people had back was that PFF said this, or that the players I said were better played in different schemes out were free vs strong. Some people REALLY buy that number. He's good and I'm glad we have him, but I think he's not in conversation for top anything.
  5. Checking in with Trubisky

    I was a big Watson ( And kizer.. ) thumper, but after last season I kind of talked myself into the idea that Pace passed on Watson due to injury concerns. I disagree on the mental aspects, Watson seems to think pretty well on his feet. Going through the first two trubisky years has really made me understand and appreciate why people say it takes three years to evaluate a QB. So much going on with they development, plus it's not in a vacuum as defenses scout these guys and find their weaknesses weekly. Pretty fun to be along for the ride with Mitch

    The more think about it, there more I think that Nagy is going to buck conventional wisdom and instead have Mitch air it out. Run it to death would make sense given the scenario, but I think maybe he takes that as a challenge and decides to show some confidence in his system and QB and instead goes balls to the wall and calls an aggressive passing game

    WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT
  8. Bears @ Dolphins, 10/14/18, 12 CT, GAME THREAD

    All of the above! This is the game to use the versatility of our running backs and lean on the ground game. Use Mitch to keep them honest, hopefully we strike early on our script, mix in deep and quick pass to move the ball and score, then let the defense and running game keep control of this one. Concerns would be if the Miami secondary makes Mitch mess up, and they get points off a turnover early. Frankly if we can get ahead, the backs and defense should make this a boring game.
  9. Jordan Howard trade rumors are back

    That was his first move as head coach that I really don't agree with. I guess we have to hope that no other teams hear that presser, as he gave away their plan!

    Wow, I did not realize how intense the issues were for Miami on the O-Line. Tunsil who seems pretty good has a concussion, and might be out at LT. They'll be trying a Josh Sitton (remember him?) is out for the season, soTed Larsen is their RG (remember him!?) Their center is out for the season, backup is in:Travis Swanson Jesse Davis at RG JaWuan James at RT That is not the making for a good group against the Bears current D
  11. Random Bears THOTs

    Twas a gift from my brother in law. It was literally the funniest thing he's ever intentionally done, so I try and encourage him by wearing it to any gatherings at his house. The really messed up thing is that it's genuine. Would you spend that much on a joke?

    Not sure I'll have a better opportunity for this bad boy than Sunday!
  13. Jordan Howard trade rumors are back

    Also, given how they've played to date, I would expect Howard to get a lot more usage against the Dolphins this weekend, so perhaps next week we can have a different strong reaction to the Bears. Just to throw it out there, Chris Tabor uses the fake returner gambit again, it doesn't work and fans and media respond by circulating a "Is it time to have Chris Tabor excommunicated?" articles
  14. Jordan Howard trade rumors are back

    Regarding his hands, they certainly look improved to me, but checking on the stats, he has literally dropped one pass all year, and his catch percentage to date is right with Kareem Hunts lifetime best season % (also Tyreek Hills who I accidentally searched for) So I guess to me he _looks_ improved and the stats say he's improved, so make of that what you will. I did say I wouldn't bet you a tattoo. I think he's pretty useful around here, and not sure the Bears would get a good enough offer to part with him where there are so many teams with multiple backs who aren't really going anywhere this season. Stranger things have happened I guess, did you hear about the GM who gave up one of the best defensive players in the game for 2 first round picks and absolutely tore the spine out of his own defense?
  15. Jordan Howard trade rumors are back

    Sounds like all of this talk is based on Jordan Howards lack of usage in one ((1) uno) game, plus some guy on a talk show throwing it out there? Doesn't take much these days. Howard has improved on the one area he wasn't good at, and has histrocially been excellent when allowed to get into a rhythm. In order to walk away from that, especially on a cheap rookie deal, I'd imagine Pace would have to receive an insane offer, like 2nd rounded. But why would Eagles offer a second rounder for a low value position, when there are probably a ton of other teams with multiple backs that would want to deal for less? I would rate my level of confidence that this doesn't happen as between six pack bet and tattoo, call it mowing someones lawn for a month level of certainty.
