  1. HOF Lineman Forrest Gregg Dies at 85

    As a Bears fan, he'll be associated with this: https://www.foxsports.com/nfl/story/thirty-years-ago-bears-packers-featured-the-dirtiest-hit-in-nfl-history-102016.
  2. Ayy Young Hoe!!

    Destined to be BFF with Dix.
  3. Bears resign OLB Aaron Lynch

    Love this signing. I like Lynch more than most here; I thought he brought some swagger to the D. (And, he's a champion pelvic thruster.) Hopefully the one-year deal will keep him hungry.
  4. Agree. He was a donkey here in Denver.
  5. Hardly. The play is a result of football's connection to rugby, and free kicks in both sports have always been recoverable. The only arbitrary aspect of the onside kick is the 10-yard rule, which has been around forever. However, granting a team possession of the ball to gain 15 yds is utterly random โ€“ why 15-yards, 1 down, etc. This idea is totally made-up nonsense.
  6. 2019 Bears: How will it go?

    The beloved are going to play in the first game of the season and the last ๐Ÿ˜‰
  7. Bears sign S Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix

    Haha. โ€œThat blocker swollowed up Dix and Bush.โ€
  8. National TV projections 2019

    I stopped you there. No one needs to see any more Dallas games. Also, for the love of the flying spaghetti monster, please schedule games outside of the usual: Dallas vs. Anyone, NFC East "Rivalry" games ("they're only 90 minutes apart and they really hate each other"), Bears vs. Packers, Ravens vs. Steelers, etc.
  9. SB LIII: Pats vs Rams, who ya got?

    Donald wasn't even the best lineman on his team during the playoffs. I'd rather have Mack, Cox, or Watt on the line. As I mentioned, Donald's a gifted penetrator, but he's not great at stopping the run. The aforementioned players are all, to me, smarter football players.
  10. Brady's buy in and willingness for BB to ride him so hard at practice and meetings is a huge reason why BB can demand so much of the team. I wonder if he would have worn out his welcome without Brady's humility.
  11. SB LIII: Pats vs Rams, who ya got?

    Winner: Doug Pederson - beat the Pats with Nick Foles. Nick Foles. Seems like teams should have been looking for new coaches who were Facebook friends with Pederson instead of McVay. Losers: Boy Genius Coach: 3 points from his vaunted O. Goff: he's still young, but important games look too big for him (Bears, 1st half of Saints, tonight). Looked utterly shellshocked tonight. Lions: The Pats' D has been SO much better this year than in the past couple with Patricia leading that side of the ball. Gurley: where's the Cutler-esque outrage at Gurley not playing? Donald: For me, one of the most overrated players in the league. Sure, he has short-area quickness and rushes well in a straight line. But, his run d is a joke, and teams can plan to reduce his influence. EDIT: PS- It's just as well that the Bears weren't playing; I would have had an aneurysm if Parkey was kicking in this game.
  12. Super Bowl LIII: Rams vs. Patriots - Poll Added!

    Haha, this is so dumb. Pats beat the โ€œbestโ€ team. Twice.
  13. Bears: Middle Linebacker โ€“ Bill George (HOF), '52-'65; **** Butkus (HOF) '65-'73; Mike Singletary (HOF) '81-'92; Brian Urlacher (HOF) '00-'12: Roquan Smith (?) '18-
  14. Super Bowl LIII: Rams vs. Patriots - Poll Added!

    Why would they want to? Brady and BB love The Donald.
  15. Rams vs Saints - part II

    Seems like front offices should have been looking for coaching candidates who were Facebook friends with Payton, not McVay.
