  1. What I Learned

    I wouldn't read to much into the fact that the Bears didn't take a TE or a OLB as the Bears didn't have any picks to attack these areas in the first 5 rounds. As in rounds 6 or 7 teams are just picking traits that maybe they can develop.
  2. Bears Draft Riley Ridley WR Georgia

    Deandre Swift is a game changer but had some problems fumbling late in the season. He will be a Junior this year.

    He had for sure 3 good picks in 2018 and the jury is still out on Iggy, Fitts and Wims. Since Kevin White he has drafted well. The Mack trade is worth it as long as the Bears are a Super Bowl type team next year. If Pace is going to keep trading away future picks every year then he has to hit on most of his picks when he makes them.

    If the Bears have injuries then maybe 8 wins but the Bears really under performed last year as they should have went further. If the RB is good then it should make them better. Maybe someday Pace trading away future picks in every draft will come back to haunt them but not yet. I see 11 wins from the Bears at least.
  5. Biggs: Donatell Interviewed, Pagano Interest

    Pagano is good enough to coordinate good players. The Colts just didn't draft that well at all.
  6. Biggs: Donatell Interviewed, Pagano Interest

    The Bears defense might not get as many INT's but shouldn't regress in terms of yards or points allowed at all. Turnovers can come and go.The case can be made that all of Smith,Floyd and Nichols can get better. Floyd had a very good 2nd half of the season. Elite defenses can play that way for 3-5 years before tailing off as only Hicks and Prince are near 30. The offense has to get better to win a Super Bowl.
  7. Biggs: Donatell Interviewed, Pagano Interest

    Donatell makes a lot of sense if the Bears stay in house. Still don't think the defense will regress if they make the right hire as only two defensive players are heading towards 30. Hicks and Prince.
  8. Vic Fangio hired by Broncos

    Nagy has to be careful with this selection since he is an offensive guy and this defensive guy has to be able to really run the defense. It can't be Mel Tucker or Bob Babich all over again. Still think it should be someone who is more a 3-4 guy who is a little more aggressive with his front 7. As most of these players were brought in to play in a 3-4 hybrid defense. Mack can play DE but don't think Floyd can play every down at DE. The Bears just need someone who can be competent and be some one the players respect as they are talented on defense and still should be good.
  9. Vic Fangio hired by Broncos

    The problem with Vance Joseph is that the Broncos defense regressed with him as coach and that was with Miller and Chubb this past year. I tend to think Joseph will go with Gase to the Jets.
  10. Vic Fangio hired by Broncos

    The Bears should stay a 3-4. Goldman , Hicks and Nichols are best served in that defense. If they switch to a 4-3 then they would need another DE to go with Mack. Floyd would have to be an OLB.
  11. GDT Birds at Bears Sun. 3:40

    Yes i do. That was last years Super Bowl. Philly was mediocre all season and not as good. This was a bad loss for the Bears in a year they could have won it all. I know enough about football to know there are no guarantee's in football next season.
  12. GDT Birds at Bears Sun. 3:40

    There is no excuse for losing a home playoff game to a win 9 win wildcard team. The Bears were better then the Eagles and should have won by 10. There is no guarantee that the Bears will be good again next year as they were injury free especially on defense most of the season. they don't have draft picks to add on and they have the salary cap coming.
  13. GDT Birds at Bears Sun. 3:40

    The defense played about the same they did all year. They allowed 4.7 yards per play which is what they did all year. Philly only had 43 yards rushing on 24 carries. They lost because they allowed 6 of 13 conversions on 3rd downs and 2 TD's on 3 trips in the red zone. Fangio is more aggressive in the secondary and makes the unit better by how he disguises coverages. Though he doesn't blitz a lot.
  14. The Bears Biggest Need: OLB

    This is why it is hard to maintain an elite defense in the modern era because of the salary cap. I don't know if Floyd has done enough to warrant a big extension. Then it comes down to positional value. This is also why the Bears need to win the Super Bowl now as by 2020 they will lose some players.
  15. Rams @ Bears IGT Dec 9th on the Lake Front

    The Rams could score 30 but with the rules slanted towards offense in the NFL most good offenses should score 30 every week. In only 1 game did the Bears defense give up over 30+ points in a game. New England scored 14 of the 38 points on special teams and the Giants scored 7 of the 30 on a pick 6 TD.
