  1. Randall!!!! Man I forgot about him! That’s actually a great name to bring up. Totally agree! Man he was fun to watch! Such a likable guy too. Yeah I would have loved to see him win a Super Bowl. I thought they could do it in those Reggie White years. I always pulled for them when Buddy left the Bears to coach in Philly. I still can’t believe that 98 Vikings team didn’t win that game vs the Falcons. That was such a disappointment. We got robbed from seeing that Broncos Vikings matchup.
  2. Completely agree with you. I was gonna bring this up but I saw you already did, & you worded your post better than I could have. Vick had that type of “WOW” factor & cult following you need to be mentioned in this type of conversation. He was doing things no one had ever done before. It would take this type of unique talent & swagger, along with a bunch of championships .... to ever be considered “Jordanesque” Bingo!!!!!!! Well said. I think it would have to be an extremely athletic QB who was a dual threat & incredibly exciting to watch. He’d have to take over games and be impossible to stop. He’d basically have to have a superman affect on people.. (as well as win a bunch of rings). And then he’d have to have a marketable personality to be loved worldwide.... I don’t think this will ever happen.. Definitely agree. And one other note is that watching basketball is much more personal. The players aren’t wearing a helmet. You get to see every expression & closeups of the player all game. So it’s easier to feel closer to them. . Plus there’s also more opportunities to be creative & artistic in basketball.
  3. yeah, I've been tuning into their live stream too.. it's not bad... no death stories lol.. but lots of criticism for teams selecting RB in 2nd round..
  4. That's exactly how I felt too, was happy to see the Jets grab him.
  5. Mike Wallace ? He started out pretty good but then AB showed up. Wallace expected a big contract extension & turned down the Steelers offer, holding out for more, so the Steelers turned around & gave the contract to AB instead lol & that was the end of 60 Minutes in Pittsburgh! 😂😂😂
  6. I really enjoyed this interview & thought a few of you might like it too (if you haven’t already seen it). It was posted on the Bears YouTube channel a few days ago. My brother just sent it to me & I thought it was FANTASTIC. You guys know I’ve been a fan of Mitch & will always pull for him, but Foles has the qualities we need right now, and this little interview really shows his character in a genuine way. You clearly see his humbleness, but it’s accompanied by an extremely confident & strong understanding of who he is & what he brings to the table. I have a ton of admiration for him & I think he’s a natural leader & someone who can help our team in many different ways. I really think the best thing for the team & even for Mitch would be to have Nick be the starter from the getgo. However, I’m not convinced they’ll let Foles be the starter week 1. They still might trot MT out there to start the first game & see how it goes & have him on a short leash. But I think that’d be a mistake. Hopefully the team already knows they’re gonna have Foles start. I’d like to see him get all the 1st team reps & have everybody in sync when the season starts. Who knows how he’ll do, but I’m very happy he’s here & I hope Mitch can learn from him, even if it means MT isn’t in Chicago next year. Hope you enjoy the video
  7. @VanS Yeah I have the same opinion about Jeudy. I think he’s being overvalued. But almost everyone else seems to love him. Thanks for posting the video with Simms. It was interesting to see he agreed & has him ranked lower. I knew he had predicted Lamar as the top QB, but didn’t realize he also had Mahomes as the top. That’s pretty impressive. I liked how he really emphasized Lamb as being the slam dunk #1 receiver in the draft. I whole heartedly agree with this. @CWood21 Not sure why you feel the need to state your opinion as factual. Nobody’s gonna be right all the time. I’m pretty sure you’ve been wrong before about how a player will turn out. That’s why these boards are interesting, to discuss our opinions with each other. By my username you can see I was excited about the Bears getting Trubisky.. so far I’ve been very wrong about him developing into a solid QB. But I’ve had other opinions that turned out to be accurate. .. It’s supposed to be fun, interesting, & constructive to share these conversations with each other. You could well wind up being correct about Jeudy.... or you could be incorrect.
  8. @jumbo I would love to see this type of approach with trading down & I’d be happy doing it with both 2nd round picks (unless of course there’s a player who falls to us that we can’t pass up on). I’m very confident we’ll trade down with 1 of the 2nd round picks. However, I’d be surprised if Pace did it with both. Nice job putting this together. 👍 It’s always fun to look at the possibilities & think what you’d do if it were up to you.
  9. Yeah I’ve been wondering why most ppl seem to think we only signed him to play guard. I assumed that part of the appeal for Pace was that Ifedi has experience at both positions, so he could back up multiple spots if needed. Versatility may be his best asset. .. although I have to admit I would much rather see him at Guard if he has to be on the field...
  10. I have to say this is totally depressing to me..... I had supported Pace up until this point but honestly this signing really disgusted me. I expected much better from him. I know a few of you guys feel people are being overly harsh with negative reactions, but I feel the anger is very much justified for this. I just don't think there's any way of defending Pace for handing out this much money to a guy who looks to be just a shell of himself. To throw away our limited resources on a TE who can barely run or jump anymore is inexcusable. It's one thing if he brings Jimmy in on the cheap .. but how tf does anyone let Pace hand out that contract to him??? Where is the accountability within the organization? Who the hell is Ryan consulting with???? I think everybody agrees that no other team was giving Jimmy anything close to that. The main point here is that this was irresponsible & in my opinion showed incompetence. - Not only from Pace, but also within the organization as a whole. There's just no way this ever should have been ok with anyone within upper management. I guess I don't know how these things work & who has a say in these decisions, but I really don't think it's overly harsh to be extremely upset about this. There are so many different approaches we could have taken to address the TE position & almost any of them would have be better than this imo. I understand we can be done with JG after 1 yr, but we could have spent that $$ on OL (or another need).. To see this happen was shocking to most of us & very disheartening. It makes me lose all faith in the direction of the organization and with Pace being able to make winning decisions. I backed him up with the Trubisky decision and was hoping things would turn around this year, but that's looking far fetched now. Bears fans deserve better. But it's the same story decade after decade after decade... I think when you support a franchise for such a long time, and you constantly refill yourself with new hopes each year, only to see similar frustrating results and questionable management decisions, there's nothing wrong with being angry about it & not supporting it. As fans, we want & deserve to have good decision making people in the positions that build our teams. That's not too much to ask for. And I don't believe the amount of money Pace decided to give Graham showed him to be making a good decision. I'm done making excuses for him.
  11. This whole post is excellent. I’m in full agreement. And the part I bolded is something I’ve been saying for a long time. It was very unrealistic to think Mitch was going to play at a high level right away. When they committed to draft him, this was understood within the organization, & they knew it would take time for his development. They desperately want him to succeed, and so do I. I’m a fan of MT and still believe in him, but obviously if the mental part of his game doesn’t improve, then we can’t wait forever. So what you said about giving him all the resources to succeed makes perfect sense. Then if he fails, you still have a solid nucleus for the next QB. But they can’t quit on him before knowing 100% that they gave him the best opportunity to succeed. There’s no question there’s still untapped potential with him. It’s just a matter of bringing that out. Hopefully with better OL play, rushing production, & a decent TE, Mitch could still be a winner. He’s not going to single-handedly put the whole team on his back like Watson or Mahomes, but he could still become a QB you could win a SB with.. We’re gonna find out soon.
  12. this reflects my feeling as well. RG, OT & TE really need to be the priorities. Good choice with Dorsett. I think he'd be a great signing. I disagree. I thought he showed a lot of maturity with the Patriots and did very well when given opportunities. He had nice chemistry with Brady. I understand he didn't put up big numbers but Brady hasn't had the arm strength the last couple years to take advantage of Dorsett's skillset. I think he'd bring a lot to the table for our team and he'd be very affordable. With Robinson & Miller already in place, Dorsett could be a nice compliment and help open up the field.
