  1. Bears Sign TE Zach Miller to 1 year deal

    Classy move by the Bears, but if you remember they also did the same for Johnny Knox when he suffered his catastrophic injury. The money isn't as important as the access to medical treatment and physical therapy he will receive.
  2. 2018 NFL Draft Thread - READ!!!

    Really like this pick. Needed another big bodied rotational player. Probably could spell both Hicks and Goldman
  3. Roquan Smith - ILB #8 overall

    Wasn't my first selection but starting to like this pick. As far as undersized, look at the size of Patrick Willis and Navarro Bowman. Both were listed at 6'1 and around 240 lbs. Also a solid LB who wasn't undersized and listed at that weight and height, our own Lance Briggs. Smith's size is totally irrelevant to me.
  4. 2018 Draft Prospects

    I heard Greg Gabriel talk about the premium it costs to move up for a quarterback. We might not have to give up a 4th to acquire Miami's 3rd. I like the idea of moving down a couple of spots to 11, 12, or maybe even 15 and acquiring more picks. There's a good chance Edmunds/Landry/ or Davenport will still be available at those spots. We can always come back and look at another possible pro bowler in Price in the second.
  5. Bears Offseason Tracker

    I think struggled is too strong a word. It is forgotten how we got Sitton. When he was waived by GB, we were his first visit, and we didn't let him out of the door even though he had other visits scheduled. I know Pace had some misses last year, like all GMs, but the year before he brought in Sitton, Hicks, Trevathan, and Freeman who all contributed in a big way. Not having complete faith in Pace is understandable and expected, but thinking Pace won't be able to compete or a sign FA isn't fair also.
  6. Free agent outside linebackers.

    Pace only signs people who shows football is important to them. It doesn't sound like it is, so they rather spend their time and money on someone who wants to play football not someone with the ability to play football
  7. Free agent outside linebackers.

    After McDonald, I don't think Fangio can vouch for anyone even if he got an extension. If this is true this is the type of guy Pace runs from
  8. 2018 Free Agency targets

    My thought on Burton is beside getting the money what would be his incentive to come here? Most reserves who leave their team in free agency leaves "to become the man" or at least have a bigger role. We just drafted what we hope is our number one TE, so either we don't believe in him or we stunt his development. Giving Burton 60 targets doesn't justify giving him 7 mil a year and I'm sure he wants more touches than that to justify his life changing contract.
  9. 2018 Free Agency targets

    Not a huge fan of Ford, but he would probably be the best FA option out there. I don't think Ansah or Lawrence are leaving their teams, and there isn't much out there for rush linebackers.
  10. 2018 Free Agency targets

    I'm surprised no one has brought this up but what about the guys probably available as cap casaulties? Two guys I'm interested in are Dee Ford and Trevor Siemian. I think Siemian will be the odd man out in Denver and I think he would make a solid number #2 behind Trubisky. They are about the same build, but Siemian is less athletic. He wouldn't need many snaps in practice and it still lets you bring back Sanchez and not allow him to see the field. Ford on the other hand, if his back checks out, could be that OLB that starts opposite of Floyd. He had 10 sacks in 2016, and it lets us not reach for someone with the #8 pick.
  11. 4th Quarter Mock 2018

    I'm hoping Kush comes back healthy as the main interior backup. Just FYI also Kush was drafted by Chiefs in 2013 and spent two years in the system so he should be very familiar.
  12. Bears Hire Matt Nagy

    Excited by the hire. It shows for better or worse that Pace is in charge, and McCaskey and Phillips were there just as they said they were, sounding boards for Pace. Maybe the meatheads will realize that the Bears are being ran like a professional organization right now and stop blaming the McCaskeys for everything that happens at Halas Hall.
  13. The Bears defense

    I think you guys need to re read Freeman's statement after this last suspension. He sounds like a guy who doesn't want to play football anymore. Definitely can't count him in future plans.
  14. The Bears defense

    I disagree that the defense was overrated. On the premise that the Bears defense looked good was because the offense was so conservative, then why did the Bears lose the average time of possession for the season? The defense was left in alot of unenviable positions and they held up (Remember the Carolina game?) Here's take on their defense The Bears defense is a young group with the arrow pointing up. They have holes at CB, and OLB, and depth issues at ILB, NT, and S. Besides working with Trubisky, working with this young group of defenders is going to be a plus for whoever takes over at DC.
  15. In other news Dirk Koetter, and Jay Gruden are staying in TB and Washington respectively. With Bowles signing an extension there are fewer and fewer openings around the NFL. Hopefully this allows less competition on the coaches Pace wants for next year
