  1. Is Pace Trubisky Proof

    IMO yes as long as they keep stringing together seasons where they are competing for a playoff spot and/or championship. MT10 is not yet there in terms of polish but he is certainly more talented than some QBs have won Super Bowls in the past (i.e. Flacco, Eli, etc.) so while he may never be as good as Mahomes (Perennial All Pro) or Watson (who I'm not entirely sold on) you can definitely still win with this guy and I think that's all that matters at the end of the day. It's not about stats it's about wins. Back to the main point, I think Pace has done enough to warrant more trust if the Trubisky experiement were to ever fail, but I personally don't see that happening. Mitch is too talented, smart, hungry and driven to fail. We don't ever have to worry about him not giving his all for this team.
  2. Chicago Drafts RB David Montgomery

    Walter Payton types of backs are rare and usually don't last until the 3rd round of drafts. If you look at where most of the best RBs in NFL history were drafted they were all 1st round and mostly top-10 picks. Not saying Montgomery can't go on to have a really good career but whoever is making that Sweetness comp is smoking some good stuff.
  3. Bears Current Cap Situation

    Not too worried about this. Pretty sure I read something somewhere saying that the best teams spend nearly 60% of their cap every year on the top-10 salaries for their team. Plus can't Bears just roll over any unspent cap space from 2019 into 2020 anyway?
  4. Chicago Drafts RB David Montgomery

    See the tricky thing is you have Patterson and now all these WRs such as Ridley and the two Hall's (Marvin + Emanuel). It may come down to special teams value. If Whyte shows to be valuable in camp/preseason as a returner then I could definitely see him earning a spot, but right now he faces an uphill battle since both Cohen and Patterson will likely be assigned the PR and KR duties. IMO it's hard to give a guy a spot on the roster if he won't be getting much action at his native RB position or as a returner. He's got to really stand out this camp season.
  5. Chicago Drafts RB David Montgomery

    I don't see where Whyte fits in this year. I'm expecting him to be a game day inactive or practice squad player. There's just too many mouths to feed when you consider Cohen, Davis and now Monty, plus Patterson is also expected to get a couple touches here and there from the RB slot. I see Whyte as more of a contingency in the event that Tarik gets hurt or is out for an extended period of time.
  6. Draft Scenario Discussion

    Don't know that I agree with this. Pace hired Nagy. Pace drafted all those young players and traded for Khalil Mack. Sure it wasn't an ideal start in the first 3 years with John Fox as his HC but Pace has more clout than Nagy right now IMO and I don't think there's any question who makes the final decisions here.
  7. Draft Scenario Discussion

    Tolliver is also a UDFA so I can see teams like Bears taking more of a chance with those signings as opposed to draft picks due to the lower risk factor. If high character wasn't as much of a concern with this team then I think we would have seen Bears make a strong push for Kareem Hunt but from all indications it was never an option. That strongly tells me that we won't see many gamble on players with character concerns or shady backgrounds. I think this much is clear after the Ray McDonald fiasco a few years back.
  8. Reassessing the RB Draft at the 11th Hour

    I'm starting to get the sense that we may never see Adam Shaheen's true potential because he has not been able to stay healthy and on the field, and that is a big thing when it comes to the development of young draft picks. 2019 is a big year for him because Bears will probably draft/sign another TE to compete with him opposite Burton.
  9. Chiefs trade for Seahawks Frank Clark

    Stupid trade. Is Clark that much better than Dee Ford?
  10. 2019 Live Draft Chat

    Not only that but you have to question why the Chiefs love to get themselves involved with players with domestic violence issues. Did they not just learn from the Kareem Hunt and Tyreek Hill situations. Now Frank Clark too? LOL
  11. Robbie Gould requests trade

    If I'm Pace I offer no more than a 7th round pick and Gould has to be willing to take less than the franchise tender amount for kickers.
  12. Jack Del Rio on Khalil Mack trade:

    Could be that or could also be that the Raiders thought Bears would be worse than both SF and GB, which is pretty funny in hindsight but surely would have made sense at the time. Otherwise what other reason could you justify not wanting to trade Mack to SF if they did indeed offer more, because it's only like a 20 min drive from Oakland?
  13. 3rd Round Pick

    I don't know much about any of these guys to be honest as this year is the first time in a while that I haven't paid much attention to the draft. That's what having no picks in the first two rounds will do to my interest level lol. On that note, I think that based on the moves made in FA, Bears have set themselves up nicely to take the BPA. If there is a RB worth taking when they pick in the 3rd then I say do it, but don;t force it if it's not good value based on the board. After a brief search, the RB Henderson from Memphis is intriguing. He must know Anthony Miller pretty well too I'm guessing.
  14. Jack Del Rio on Khalil Mack trade:

    Bears improved for sure. Raiders still yet to be determined. They certainly got a good haul of draft picks, but it's all about what they do with those picks now. Them trading for Antonio Brown and signing all those FAs this year are separate factors, and even then it is yet to be determined if those moves will actually improve their record from last year. I'm just not all that sold on Gruden and don't think he's the right guy for that job.
  15. Aaron Rodgers is a nutjob

    I always knew this guy was a diva. What I'm most surprised by is how he would freeze out certain players if they listened to the coaches calls vs what he told them to do. I mean...that's just awful. This isn't bush league, you are playing with guys' livelihoods and careers by doing that type of stuff. Rodgers is a biznatch. Ya I don't care that he's really talented and one of the best QB's ever. He seems like real big POS and a guy that's way too into his feelings.
