  1. The 2020 Bears Offseason Tracker

    Please add Artie Burns already man sheesh
  2. Jags are eating $18.75m in prorated bonus over the next 3 years. His contract with us is 3 yrs / $50m. We can cut him after this year with $12.5m dead money.
  3. Bears trade for Foles

  4. Bears trade for Foles

    I hope to God we got some relief on his $ Too rich in draft compensation and contract
  5. Bears hire John DeFlippo as QB Coach

    Another good addition. And a vote of confidence in Ragone. High pot bench on the coaching staff. Love it as long as it doesn't keep us from giving ARob a deal too.

    I really like Corey Ballentine as a developmental CB. Could be a target if Pace wants to trade back a little from 126 to recoup a pick.

    Unless they come from a division rival? Green Bay tried to pay Kyle Fuller and succeeded in backing up the Brinks truck for Adrian Amos. With the amount of draft picks + free agency money spent on the Packers defensive secondary, you have to concede that it is a considerable amount of resources spent for a unit that ranks in the back half of the league. Anyway, excited to have my own draft picks to illogically defend after tonight!

    Has any team spent more draft capital with less to show for it than Green Bay with DBs? Before this draft, 7 of their last 10 first and second rounders have been used on DBs. Obviously with the trade up (!!) for Savage last night, that number is now 8 of 12. From the 7 previous DB's selected (not counting Savage) they currently have only 3 combined career INTs on their roster. Year Rnd Pick Pos College Player 2018 Appearances for GB 2018 Starts for GB Career INT 2018 1 18 CB Louisville Jaire Alexander 13 11 1 2018 2 45 CB Iowa Josh Jackson 16 10 0 2017 2 33 CB Washington Kevin King 6 6 1 2017 2 61 S North Carolina St. Josh Jones 13 5 1 2015 1 30 S Arizona St. Damarious Randall 0 0 10 traded 2015 2 62 CB Miami (OH) Quinten Rollins 0 0 3 out of league 2014 1 21 DB Alabama Ha Ha Clinton-Dix 7 7 14 traded All this to say - I'm not exactly shaking in my boots after GB's night last night. Especially considering how high expectations were with 2 first rounders..
  9. Draft Scenario Discussion

    The emphasis for Nagy has been on guys who love football. This is not the same conversation as character concerns. A guy can have run into some trouble off the field but get a second chance because he loves football - aka high effort, passion, etc.. Circling back to the conversation on Polite - I really have a concern about whether he loves football based on his pre-draft performances. Don't think he will be on our board at all. We can get that "dog mentality" without bringing in guys who put the organization at risk of embarassment. I would point to Anthony MIller as a guy with terrific football character and a fiery and competitive demeanor who has no history of any legal issues. Sorry this ended up being kind of a thread reply but just my 2 cents..
  10. What I think Happens Mock

    Love Oliver and Ballentine. Ballentine especially is my favorite CB for Day 2/3. Armstead is not my guy at RB but can see why you did that if there is a strong link. I don’t think we spend a pick at K - think it’s possible we double dip RB or even go WR to keep throwing potential at this offense.
  11. Definitely like his versatility and I think he has great traits to fit into an offense primarily focused on passing the ball. Totally makes sense if Davis keeps the majority of the inside carries. Thoughts on Jalin Moore as Trayveon lite in the 5th/6th round? https://dawindycity.com/2019/04/10/chicago-bears-nfl-draft-running-back-sleeper/
  12. 2 Weeks Out Mock Draft

    Long time visitor on the forum, and actually used to have an account on the old site (dabears32). Always enjoy reading your stuff Windy. I like this a lot but I wonder if they might prioritize DB over TE - maybe a Ugo Amadi or Corey Ballentine in the 4th. No complaints about Warring as a prospect though. As for Williams, I just posted in another thread wondering if he is the right run-scheme fit as he seems to be more of a pro-style outside guy at least at A&M.
  13. Seeing a lot of people (on this forum and elsewhere) banging the drum for Trayveon Williams. He's a nice, well-rounded back with plus pass pro but I have to wonder if he is the right running scheme fit - didn't he run mostly pro-style outside zone at A&M? Also a lot of tread on the tires compared to other backs in his projected range.
