    Other teams are stupid as the Pats are the model of success. Why not strive to be the best and model yourself after a team that is in or wins the super bowl every year? The biggest form of flattery is imitation. Why not imitate a team that wins every year and not like the rest of the league and overpay players other than their QB.

    Isn't that what the Pats do? Looks like it's working out well for them. Seymore, Jamie Collins, Cooks, , Jimmy G, Solder just some off the top of my head.

    Say it's between 25 and 30 percent, that is still ridiculous. I am using 30 percent as a base because the 2018 cap of 177 is the only finite number we have as a base. We have a new regime in town and so far gruden is running this team the way he wants. He wanted Miller, a player at a very important position LT, while everyone was clamoring for us to draft a safety or MLB, 2 positions that do not have the same value as a stud LT. Two games in and Miller looks like he can play the position well so I would say Gruden made the right call and didn't listen to the talking head fools on TV. We have also landed Hurst, Hall and Key who all appear like they will contribute for years. He has cut bait with RM's drafting mistakes (Obi, Ward, Cook etc.) and so far I I like the moves. I do not like all of the AARP members on the roster but once again he has a plan and I think average fans thought this team was closer to a Super Bowl than what reality is. That is why we have such a huge influx of old geezers.

    That is the most lubricious question ever. Who cares??? How about a real question, do you think this team is Mack away from a super bowl birth?

    The Raiders suck, it's an interesting topic land I know I'm right too lol

    In 5 years Mack will be 32. Any GM paying a 32 year old DE/LB 25 million should be fired immediately. Macks prime is 3 more years at most and having Mack and Carr taking up nearly 30 percent of your salary cap for the next 3 years on a team sorely locking depth makes zero sense. I do not understand why that is such a hard concept to grasp.

    I completely disagree when you have a QB making 25 million. Between Carr and Mack that would be 30 percent of our salary cap for 2018. That is insane and anyone who suggested we should have kept Mack and traded Carr clearly needs to have their head examined or go back to football 101 training. Let me ask you on a team like the Raiders who are clearly no where close to a Super Bowl and that is all that matters in the NFL, no one remembers 2nd place, would you rather have mack for the next 3 years (until he is 30 and starts to decline) or 2 first round picks and spread the 25 million for mack on 3 players? Let's say 2 players making 10 per and 1 making 5 along with 2 firsts?

    Come on man, don't be naive. QB's touch the ball on every offensive play, therefor they impact every aspect of a teams O. Team live and die by Qb play, not LB play. If you do not realize that I do not know what to tell you. Like I said we will see how many wins Mack translates into and that will determine if the play to trade for him and pay him 25 a year was the right move. It's all about winning and QB play and the reason I'm confidant the Bears will be at Best average with Mack is because their most important player on the team is garbage aka Trashinski...

    Mack may be Mack but wins and losses matter. Like I said in the post above let's see how many wins the 25 million dollar Mack translates into. Don't buy the media hype, Mack is great but for the millionth time you do not pay a DE/LB 25 million when you have a QB making 20 plus. This is a QB driven league and not a elite LB driven league. You buy the media garbage they vomit at you it sucks you in but the Raiders made the right move and trust me the Raiders are not a Mack away from a Super Bowl birth.

    Let's see how many games a 25 million dollar LB wins for the Bears over the next 3 years. That will determine if the trade was a success for Chicago or not. Individual players mean nothing unless they translate into wins. Don't tell anyone but the Bears have Trashisnki as a QB. He will be holding a clipboard in 3 years.

    I agree, too many miles on his old body. He is a hard nosed runner and will get us tough yards but he lacks explosiveness and he isn't a great pass catcher. We are pretty one dimensional with him in there. Martin hasn't shown a thing either.
  12. Week 2 GDT: Raiders (0-1) @ Broncos (1-0)

    After the Bears lose tomorrow well possess 2 draft picks of 0 and 2 teams.

    Huge play right here.
