  1. The 2020 Free Agency Rumblings Thread

    Just from what I've read the Y TE is more inline blocker, who seals the edge, and helps more in the run game. They don't really cause mismatches or threaten the seams of a defense. They are more your safety valve receivers in the passing game. The U TE are more the receivers, the smaller guys who cause mismatch problems. The more dynamic guys who put up the stat numbers. Usually your all-pro TE are a combination of both and could play either one just as effective. That's why they get the big contracts. You're exactly right though those guys I mentioned are the ones I expect the Bears to target in free agency.

    I hope I'm wrong but you might see names like Blake Bell, Ben Koyack, and Nick Vannett as the new Bear tight end
  3. The 2020 Free Agency Rumblings Thread

    I think the reason why they didn't reach out to Olsen is he is not a Y TE. He's a U from the U. Pace probably couldn't justify in his own head paying Burton 8 mil and Olsen 7 mil when they both play the exact same position. I hate to say it but right now both Burton and Olsen are injury prone, and Pace said in his press conference "you can't make the club in the tub." He's gonna stay away from someone with a history of nagging injuries where they miss time. I think you will see the Bears bring in a low cost Y type end and draft a U to eventually replace Burton.
  4. February Mock Offseason

    You don't hear or see Floyd with the flashy car or jewelry so yeah kinda. I'm just saying when you get a nice raise you make a big purchase in general
  5. February Mock Offseason

    And it does not sound like a guy who plans on leaving next year...maybe an extension is in the works?
  6. Would you pull Floyd's option?

    Great minds think alike lol
  7. Would you pull Floyd's option?

    Floyd's comp especially in this defense is Jarret Johnson of the Ravens back in the early 00's. Look at Johnson's stats and they are equivolent to Floyd's and Johnson was a highly paid OLB. Windy is right about 8 mil is the comp for Floyd.
  8. The 2020 Draft Thread

    Hopkins had a large drop rate his sophomore year and began improving on the drops his junior and senior year. He has to get stronger and work on his blocking, but Hopkins is probably more athletic than most of this years tight ends, and can cause mismatches to linebackers and safeties. He also has a NFL pedigree with his dad playing LT for the Oilers/Titans (Brad Hopkins). You'll see a push on him after the combine, and vault over some guys
  9. Would you pull Floyd's option?

    I guy I'm looking at that's tier 2 would be Xavier Su-a Filo from Dallas. Minimal money and is serviceable to compete for the guard spot, and become a swing interior person if he doesn't start
  10. Positivity

    Scherff will resign with Washington or get franchised
  11. Would you pull Floyd's option?

    I don't think a FA OT is coming simply because they cannot afford to spend another 10-15 million on the OL. You never throw good money after bad. They are going to reinvest in the line with draft picks and maybe a serviceable affordable vet for RG
  12. Would you pull Floyd's option?

    I wouldn't be surprised to see them grab a couple of linemen and maybe a couple of tight ends. Regardless on whether you like or dislike Trubisky fixing the line should be the number one concern for this offense.
  13. The 2020 Free Agency Rumblings Thread

    Isn't Hill in his 30's? I don't know how much upside he has left? It's kind of what you see is what you get and that is a Joe Webb type jack of all trades quarterback.
  14. Would you pull Floyd's option?

    I'm looking at TE and possibly edge rusher with the 2's. This OT class is so deep you can find a good project in the 4th that could replace either replace Massie or challenge Leno next year.
  15. Bears sign CB Tre Roberson (CFL)

    What I like about it is he wraps up when he tackles, something you don't see much of anymore. Also being a former quarterback obviously helps him when he is zone coverage. Saw several nice plays just reading what the quarterback. Looks like he does a lot of barking out there, so have to watch to make sure he doesn't get too many conduct penalties.
  16. The 2020 Draft Thread

    Though I like Corbin, I feel like his skill set is similar to Cohen's. Robinson has the height/weight combo the coaches looks for (510 215 lbs) and while not having gamebreaker speed, he seems to run away from the opposition. He reminds me of a poor man's Kareem Hunt. If I remember correctly you had him in one of your draft threads
  17. The 2020 Draft Thread

    Watching replay of the East West shrine game and James Robinson from ISU looks like a back the Bears could grab in the later rounds and would help the running game. Been a big fan of his for awhile.
  18. The 2020 Draft Thread

    Looks like James Morgan is attracting too much attention at the East West Shrine game for the Bears to get him under the radar. I really like this kid as a 5th round option, but at this rate he will be moving up people's boards
  19. Bears hire John DeFlippo as QB Coach

    I recently said pass on Fillipo as OC BUT, kinda like this move as QB coach. I thought Nagy really liked Ragone, and that is evident with the promotion. Seems like he is grooming Ragone for an OC or head coaching job for the future. Fillipo can resurrect his career by making Trubisky in a better QB. If that doesn't happen then it doesn't fall back on him, and would probably get a job somewhere else.
  20. Bears hire Bill Lazor as OC

    I think the medical histories of Burton and Sheehan will make Pace balk at Henry. I think you will see a unsexy boring pickup at TE, and use one of the second round picks for another TE.
  21. Bears fire a bunch of coaches (Mostly offense)

    I think Defillipo getting axed twice in two years is a red flag for something...think I'll pass
  22. If you were the GM, what you do with 24M right now?

    Here's the thing the Bears ESPECIALLY under Pagano runs the old Ravens 3-4 system. Mack plays the role of T Sizzle, Smith plays the role of Ray Lewis, and Jackson plays the role of Ed Reed. In this system Floyd plays the role of Jarret Johnson...don't remember him? He was the OLB on the other side of Suggs who did most of the dirty work. Johnson played a long time and I don't think he ever had over 10 sacks for the season. They are not asking Floyd to just rush the passer, they are asking him to do everything else, and according to Pace, Nagy, Pagano, and the OLB coach they all love what he is doing. Floyd isn't going anywhere, and we might have to get use to that
  23. Your #1 FA Target

    I think a guy like him or Su-aFilo from Dallas are realistic options for the RG spot for the Bears
  24. The 2020 Draft Thread

    I would think that they keep Fitzgerald around to maybe start for the kid or at least be a mentor for him. By the time they need a good backup Rosen would be getting close to coming a free agent.
  25. The 2020 Draft Thread

    I'm starting to get on the Rosen train with you...it'll only cost a late round draft pick and he has potential
