  1. 2019 free agency targets

    Waddle was awful in Detroit as well. Fisher though is one I wouldn't mind bringing in, liked him coming out of college.
  2. Checking in with Trubisky

    First Bears QB to do it since McMahon in '85 if he does
  3. Who are your favorite broadcasters right now?

    Al and Cris are my favourite partnership, Romo's great but not big on Jim Nantz. I've noticed a couple of games this year that Chris Spielman has done and have enjoyed his analysis. Witten is the absolute worst for me, his "got him" before the QB even releases the ball is the worst thing ever. Also, this has just got me thinking about how much I miss Phil Simms. He was so, so bad. I mean so bad. He was hilarious. @PhilSimmsQuotes on Twitter was one of the best things about the NFL when he was commentating.
  4. Chuck Pagano Hired as DC

    Oh yeah absolutely. I mean look at Fangio and Nagy's styles, very different but meshed well. Think this is just another example of the type of person Nagy and Pace want inside Halas Hall.
  5. Chuck Pagano Hired as DC

    How much does this sound like Nagy's style? I think Pagano's personality should fit in really well with this team, very understandable why they would to bring him in, fits the mould. That, and he was very good in Baltimore which doesn't hurt. Important as well to have someone experienced on the other side of the ball, Nagy will still only be in his second year as a HC, he's got someone who has been in the league for years and has six years experience as a HC himself. A lot to like about this hire. I wanted it to be Donatell but the more I think about this the more I like it. Donatell's contract is up so guessing he goes to Denver to be their DC now.
  6. League 2019 off season

    I hope Jets fans like a solid run-run-pass mentality and 10 WR screens a game... In fairness, I think Gase will get something out of Darnold, he looked really good the last month of the season. As long as Gase is calling plays and looking after the QB, Darnold will have a good year.
  7. Vic Fangio hired by Broncos

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I heard on a podcast that Miami had the 29th ranked defense in his last year there... he's not for me thanks.
  8. Biggs: Donatell Interviewed, Pagano Interest

    Donatell was my top choice, especially after Bowles went to Tampa, so was glad to see this news. Donatell and Jay Rodgers are two coaches I really want to see stick around. Pagano seems like a real players' coach too so can understand why the Bears would want to take a look, style is likely similar to that of Nagy's. Happy to see we're not getting linked with Gregg Williams (apologies if I've now jinxed it). I don't think the defense was ever going to be as good in 2019 as it was this season, it's so hard to replicate the level of success we had. The offense I'm confident will catch up though, we can still be a very good team even with the defense playing at a lower level (though I'd still expect us to be a top-10 D purely on talent - only Amos that's out of contract, every other starter will be back). As much continuity as possible will be a big help though, come on Ed, stay with your boys.
  9. Roster Breakdown: Wide Receivers

    Tell me about it. For a guy who is very fast, Gabriel has real difficulty making defenders miss.
  10. Vic Fangio hired by Broncos

    Finding a way to persuade Donatell to stay and become DC would be my next choice if Fangio goes. Want to try and keep as many of the coaches around as possible but Vic's always going to want to take some of his guys if he goes.
  11. 4 Bears named All Pro

    Eddie Jackson got the most votes at safety. Just to add to the Ryan Pace love - not bad for a 4th round pick in his second year Mr. Pace. Also credit the Colts, two rookies made first team All-Pro. Chris Ballard v Ryan Pace for executive of the year.
  12. GDT Birds at Bears Sun. 3:40

    Only thing that worries me is their playoff experience compared to ours. I usually hate saying this but... I'm quietly confident. We have been excellent at Soldier Field this season and are coming off a run of 9 wins in 10 games - this doesn't get talked about much but we were 3-3, we've only lost one of the last TEN games. Mitch has put together three really solid games in a row with the Vikings game being the best of the lot. If we play to the best of our ability then this game finishes as a Bears win. And I cannot wait for Sunday. Let's. Go. Bears.
  13. Bears @ Vikings GDT Dec 30 3:05pm

    I can't believe how easy that was, the Vikings were bad. I was expecting a loss here but as soon as our defense came out and set the tone with those early 3 and outs you could tell the Vikings weren't up to it. Amazing how calm I was watching that, we were in Minnesota, we just don't win comfortably there like that. This team is so good, we've won 9 of the last 10, I can't wait for Sunday. Whatever happens in the Playoffs, the ride we've been on in the regular season has been unbelievable. Also, that 2-point conversion was the funniest play I've seen for a long time Prince running like four fake sweeps really got me
  14. Bears @ Vikings GDT Dec 30 3:05pm

    I'm guessing the players who aren't practising so far this week won't be risked - Jackson, Robinson - and from the way Nagy circled around the question earlier in the week, I can totally see us playing the starters in the first half then potentially pulling them at half time depending on how the Rams game is going. Interesting to see if we try to give Long some game time here before the Playoffs start.
  15. Madden 19

    Also if the coach you want rejects your offer, then the game just assigns you a random one you didn't want. I also hate this game.
