  1. 2019 free agency targets

    I read two blurbs about him getting into altercations. One was when a friend of his got in a fight so Hunt and his friends jumped in but no charges were filed. I forget what the other one was but it was with a male and no charges were filed.
  2. Bears interested in Kareem Hunt?

    It is but we've also never been this close to being a Super Bowl contender. Hunt is 23 years old and clearly has made mistakes. The media can hoot and holler about how horrendous the video is (which it is) and Nagy and the Bears can say they agree, they don't condone his behavior, but they want to give the young man a second chance at having an NFL career and productive life in society. IF Hunt fails, that's on him and the Bears will immediately cut bait and say they gave him a shot and he blew it so now he's out of the league forever. His loss, not ours for trying to give the kid a shot. We have limited money and limited draft picks. This is a no brainer to me but I'm like a shark in the water hunting for that Lombardi Trophy... I smell blood in the water.
  3. Bears interested in Kareem Hunt?

    I think Nagy and the franchise could very easily save face and say they don't condone what Hunt did but they do believe in giving a young man a second chance. Nagy could say that he believes in Hunt but that it's up to the young player to make the most of this opportunity he is being given. If the kid is stupid enough to mess up then the Bears can cut bait and Nagy can flat out say that he gave the kid a chance to turn his career and life around and the kid failed and now is likely out of the league for good. SOME team is going to give Kareem Hunt a shot, why not us? He fits a glaring need, has experience in the system, and most importantly has had SUCCESS in the system. Howard's contract is up after the 2019-2020 season, I'd absolutely do it. Roethlisberger has two rape accusations but nobody dares talk about it. Tyreek Hill admitted guilt to choking his girlfriend, etc.
  4. Well we ostensibly let Donatell go for a promotion and Pires we didn't decide to retain. Staley I don't know if we wanted to keep around or not, but I still do think Pagano has people in mind that he pitched to Nagy.
  5. It sucks to lose Donatell but Pagano's background is as a DB coach. I'm not too concerned but it will depend on who he brings into the fold.
  6. Checking in with Trubisky

    @AZBearsFan with Love I think they switched from a power/gap scheme to a zone scheme and it wasn't something the OL was used to, nor the player. I don't know if I buy the 4.35 speed they cite on him, but regardless I think you can play him around 205 lbs and have a 4.45 guy. If we don't go after Hunt I'd take a look at this kid, was considered a first round pick last season IIRC.
  7. Checking in with Trubisky

    @AZBearsFan I don't think Jacobs will be there for us in round 3 and Holyfield if I'm not mistaken has an arrest for weed/paraphernalia possession.
  8. Checking in with Trubisky

    Bryce Love tore his ACL so he's falling down draft boards... would you burn a low 3rd rounder on him? I'd stash him on the PUP list and then ease him into the offense later in the season. The kid can take over in 2020...
  9. 2019 free agency targets

    I don't think Kareem Hunt has any leg to stand on when it comes to arguing for a contract. Bare minimum WITH heavy caveats. I don't know the dude but once you start playing with their money, more often than not people shape up. He'd get a base salary from me and his contract voids completely if he has another discretion.
  10. Bears interested in Kareem Hunt?

    I'd sign the kid IF he seems genuinely remorseful AND promises to not put himself in that position ever again. Keep him stashed for 6 weeks, let the noise die down (assuming his suspension is 6 games, I have no idea). After that you can ease him into the offense and eventually take over for Howard. Don't forget: Jordan Howard is a free agent at the end of next season.
  11. Bears interested in Kareem Hunt?

    Waddle and Silvy are talking about Kareem Hunt... quite a few pro's and one glaring and obvious con: 1. Young 2. Led the league in rushing his rookie season 3. Huge need on our offense 4. Coach is familiar with him 5. Player is familiar with the offense 6. CHEAP
  12. 2019 free agency targets

    Beasley had his option picked up.
  13. Brandon Staley to the Broncos

    Nothing "official" yet but there's a ton of smoke and it makes sense considering their history together.
  14. Checking in with Trubisky

    Yep! IDGAF if it's the stupid Pro Bowl, if MY QB is in there I'm watching lol
  15. Checking in with Trubisky

    There's a chance Trubisky plays in the Pro Bowl
