  1. Forecasting the 2018 Bears Offense

    Fitzpatrick would decome the tarting slot corner and the backup to every other starter in the secondary. That is a very valuble player
  2. 3 Draft Scenarios, Pick Your Favorite

    People talk about how Pace always takes a physical freak, but I don't think he's ever had a stud lock sitting there to take at the top of the draft and passed on it for the athlete. Obviously last year they went with Trubisky. Take the Kevin White pick, in that draft there was a tier 1 group that ended with the pick before the Bears (Leonard Williams went 6, Amari Cooper 4). Vis Beasley was available and probably should have been the pick, but I don't remember him being a "stud" type at the top. Maybe he was and I don't remember. With Floyd, I felt like there were 7-8 players in the top tier. Pace moved up from 11 to 9 to get Floyd (DeForest Buckner went 7, Ramsey went 5). Tunsil was available, but he was fresh off the gasmask incident, I guess this is my way of saying that if a can't miss stud that starts Day 1 is there, however unlikely, I feel like he's taking that player over the physical freak. So knowing that at least 3 QB's go 1,2,3, that means that Barkley, Chubb, Nelson (the true tier 1A group), maybe you include Fitzpatrick in that group, too. If that's your top 7 then Pace just misses again. Maybe 4 QB's go in the top 7 and Pace has Nelson or Fitzpatrick sitting there. I think Edmunds is a bit raw, but he is absolutely the athlete with projection and would fit the mold after just missing the truly elite draft talent.
  3. 2018 Draft Prospects

    There's no way Buffalo doesn't trade up here. they have the ammo to pull it off and the jets are poised to get one of the top 4. I can't see them sitting at 12
  4. I look at it this way: He gets a 2 year/$29MM contract. He can be cut (with post June 1 designation) before the 2020 season and save $13MM in 2020 and $14MM in 2021 and count $4.5MM against the cap for those two years. That's worst case scenario, which assumes his play regresses or he has a career threatening injury. If he plays like 2017 and doesn't miss significant time it's awesome.
  5. Forecasting the 2018 Bears Offense

    Its hard for me to imagine the first pick is anything but Nelson or an edge rusher given the offseason moves so far.
  6. Yeah, just saw that My main point is that all contracts are x years guaranteed with y team option years. Even if he signed a 5 year deal it's really a 2-3 year deal with two options.
  7. All the guaranteed money is probably in the first two years, so it's a two year deal.
  8. TABT

  9. Bernstein is an insufferable prick. He and Boers (and now Goff) treat everyone like crap and are bullies. I hated him before and still do now. McNeil is a total meatball. No intelligent thoughts come from him. The best sidekicks to these guys do not silence them on the air. No one can fix what they bring. I tune in to the score at 7:40 every morning (my kids school drops off at 7:40) and listen to the guests (Biggs, Gammons, Heyman, etc.) and if I can catch Brian Billick or Matt Miller in the afternoon I do, but there is no point to listening to the radio personalities. And, BTW, the Score is a beacon of light compared to ESPN 1000, which is somehow worse than all the above mixed together. /End Rant
  10. Bears will sign Cody Parkey, K

    I don't mind spendinng the $, but that seems like a lot for a K. Where does that place him league wide?
  11. Bowlers New Mock

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the fifth year option is something like top 15 average salary or something like that? In many cases, that decision may be an obvious YES/NO, but in other cases I could see if being a challenge due to the relatively high price. I'm too lazy to look up the facts, but that is a potential reason for fewer Rd1 trade-ups.
  12. Athletic Offseason

    Not sure if anyone here subscribes to the Athletic, but I did a couple months back and their content is great. They don't hit you with low quality volume, but what they print is done well. I certainly prefer a couple great articles to a hundred click bait temptations with no substance. They did an offseason plan for the Bears and I wanted to share it with you all. I am listing only a small amount of info, to get the rest subscribe on your own. Athletic Plan QB - Chase Daniel RB - Benny Cunnigham WR - Albert Wilson (Dolphins) - Signed Taylor Gabriel WR - Tender Cameron Mereidth 2nd rd - Tendered Original Round WR - Tender Josh Bellamy low rd - Tendered Original Round TE - Trey Burton TE - Daniel Brown OT - Chris Hubbard (Browns) G - Zach Fulton (Texans) C - No Move DL - Mitch Unrein (Bucs) ILB - Christian Jones (Lions) OLB - Trent Murphy (Bills) OLB - Alex Okafor OLB - Sam Acho - Resigned CB - Kyle Fuller - Transition Tag CB - Tender Bryce Callahan - Tendered Original Round CB - Sherrick McManis S - None P - Pat O'Donnell K - Kai Forbath - Signed Coby Parkey I was impressed. I am not a paid advertiser by any means, but I was surprised how many predictions came true.
  13. Allen Robinson agrees to sign with Bears

    Great start if true. 3/42 is a lot less than I expected him to get, so the "value" signing, a hallmark of pace in FA, is a bit unexpected but welcome. Lots of cap space remaining and not an overcommittment in years. I really hope that we also sign starter caliber at: CB, G/C, OLB during the first day or two.
  14. Positional Analysis: WR

    this is convincing. i know its a highlightnreel but i'm on board with signing him and adding a couple draft picks or secpnd tier fa's
