Five Things I Wish the 2016 Bears Had (#5)

| August 29th, 2016

#5 – ROBBIE GOULD FROM TEN YEARS AGO

The 2016 Bears are built to play close games. How so?

  • They are built for a power run game. Angry guards. Good backs. A bunch of tight endy, hybrid-type players. You get the sense John Fox will be preaching about time of possession each week.
  • The Bears secondary is the team’s signature weakness so good offenses will be able to move the ball. But they have terrific coverage linebackers and a solid front seven so translating those drives into seven points will be harder.
  • The Bears passing game, even with Alshon Jeffery, is not designed to hit home runs. They want to play a quick-release style and get the ball in the hands of their playmakers.

A year ago, with much less talent, Robbie Gould could have extended a game against the Redskins and beaten the 49ers. He had a decent season overall but when the game was on the line, Gould was at his weakest. When 2006 Robbie walked onto the field, you could take a bathroom break and zip up with confidence. Three points were guaranteed. But those days are long gone.

The difference between seven and ten wins this season could be three kicks. But which Robbie will attempt them, 2015 or 2006?

    Cut him!

  • CanadaBear

    Yep. Gotta agree. If not for Gould being avg, the Bears would be on everyone’s lips as a pre-season favorite.

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      How’s the new knee doing? Ready to suit up and play yet?

      • CanadaBear

        As soon as I finish stretching. Sore as hell but getting very slightly better every day. I see the doc the day after labor day and PT starts the next day. I’ve been told by numerous people the only difference between PT’s and terrorists is you can negotiate with a terrorist. Even when the hospital called to make the PT appt., they were kinda laughing about my future misery. EEK! Thanks for asking!

        • Bender McLugh

          Good luck, Canada. Hang with it!

          • CanadaBear

            Thanks Man! Overall I think I’m on track. I’m doing the limited exercises they gave me. Slow and steady.

        • Huge Bear’s Penis

          You are in for a treat. I had PT for a back injury years ago. I was ready to kill the therapist at the end of each session. Good luck and hope all continues to get better.

          • CanadaBear

            Thanks a lot! I’ve had a few people tell me that going to a massage therapist before PT is a good thing (to get everything loosened and warmed up). Also, walking in a pool is supposed to be great for it. Once I’m released for all this stuff I’m going to give it what I got. Of course, I’m nervous about it but I know it won’t get better sitting on the couch eating bon-bons.

          • PaceBot 2000

            whoa, I thought massage therapists were illegal. Happy endings by a fucking doctor? That’s science I can get behind. Sign me up.

          • CanadaBear

            My massage therapist is about 6’2″ and 225 lbs. Pretty sure neither one of us want any part of a handy with each other! Not to mention it’s not covered by BC Health (as in, I’m paying for it). Appreciate the support, though!

          • Michael Bradbury

            Warming up is part of PT, they will work UP to you working hard and sweating. Adding exercises as you get stronger and can handle it.
            Your P.Therapist should be your best buddy. πŸ˜‰

            YOU’RE A POS PAL.

            5 YEAR OLD COMMENT.

        • MB30SD

          Hahaha… PT SUUUUCKS.

          have fun with that Canada. Better you than me.

          • CanadaBear

            That’s the general consensus.

          • MB30SD

            Hahaha, don’t worry, I’ve paid my dues my fair shate over the years. Just commiserating

          • CanadaBear

            I know. Appreciate the thought! It’s gonna hurt no doubt about that. I met a guy out cycling last year and he said he was back on the bike in 6 weeks. He was about 10 years younger than me and in good shape. I’m hoping to be riding the bike outdoors in 6-8 weeks. If not, I’ll ride indoors until next spring.

        • Michael Bradbury

          Wrong attitude! Doing your PT well (simply working hard) is the single biggest determiner of your success. look at it like a WORKOUT and prepare to sweat and you’ll LOVE THE RESULTS!!

  • BearDown100393

    Are field goal attempts in preseason also meaningless? Was it meaningless that Gould missed at 48 yards against the Chiefs? Was his routine compromised because it was preseason versus regular? Meaningless.

    • Sactowns#1

      You could see it was a bad snap but still, it’s concerning.

      • Huge Bear’s Penis

        better cut the long snapper too.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Fair to say the place kicking hasn’t been quite the same since Mannelly retired…?

  • AlbertInTucson

    “50% of this game is 90% mental” – Lawrence Peter Berra.

    It is not at all unusual for veteran kickers to have an off year and then bounce back with a strong one.

    48 Yards into a Soldier Field crosswind is not a chip shot.

    Several concerns about this teams rank higher to me than Robbie Gould.

    • CanadaBear

      Gotta agree. I’m not against exploring for a new kicker but let’s make sure the new guy can kick at Soldier Field when it counts.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Tampa took FSU’s Roberto Aguayo with their #2 pick. He was a grease fire in their first 2 games but seemed to have righted the ship in game 3.

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      I agree, but why not bring competition into training camp, same goes with our punter

      • AlbertInTucson

        Reasonable requests of the Bears that I have no explanations for.

        I’ll just file them next to “Why cut Matt Slauson” and “What did you ever see in Shea McClellin?”.

        • MB30SD

          Yep

      • AlbertInTucson

        Of course “Robbie of 2006” is only wish #5 of 5 so it’s probably in its proper perspective.

        • I can think of 5 wishes more important than Gould.

          1) Key guys to fucking stay healthy (or at least better depth)
          2) Two better OTs (this could easily be 2 + 3)
          3) A good C
          4) A good TE
          5) Good CBs (this could easily be 5+6+7)
          6) Good S (this could easily be 6+7, depending on your view of Amos)

          Then maybe-maybe-you start talking about Robbie. But I’d probably still list RB for sure first, maybe a good young ILB to groom as well.

          • AlbertInTucson

            But other than THAT, The Professor has nothing to add.

  • AlbertInTucson

    “The Patriots cut Terrence Knighton” – Irish Sweetness at the tail of the previous thread.

    Remember what a supposedly brilliant move signing him was, just because it was Belicheat?

  • AlbertInTucson

    Along with what? 25 other teams?.

      Just more evidence that he and Bill are Hillary and Huma’s beard. Sticking with the most powerful man in the country is good old fashion woman nature, but I have no idea what Huma’s deal is.

    • PaceBot 2000

      That man simply loves taking pictures of his penis and sending them to people. It’s like he’s sharing his gift with the world. Like Mother Teresa really.

        My favorite headline was “Anthony Weiner pulls out (of Twitter)”

        • willbest

          Weiner is another guy I wouldn’t mind being President. If the fall of the US is going to happen anyway, we might as well be entertained.

          • GP portrayed by Eric Roberts

            Huma is a Pisces.

            Weiner is a Cancer in Uranus.

  • PaceBot 2000

    I think I’d feel much better about Terrance Knighton as my backup DT than Sutton or Ferguson. Still has 2 more weeks to drop some weight and come in at a svelte 6’3 348lbs.

    • willbest

      Sutton has heart.

      • PaceBot 2000

        Knighton has a heart as well. I’m sure of it.

        • Huge Bear’s Penis

          are these like the reports that McPhee has a knee?

      • MB30SD

        AND awareness?

        • willbest

          He looked good in the preseason and its clear Fox has him in the rotation. I am just saying I would go with young JAG than aged JAG.

      Ego looked miserable at NT. He was surfing more than Landon Cohen on a brisk day on the north side of Oahu.

      • CanadaBear

        Everything I keep reading is Ego is just about out the door.

      • PaceBot 2000

        Knighton and Paul Kruger available. Holy shit, that would be an instant upgrade to D.

        • I heard Knightnon is fat, lazy and ineffective. Would he really be that much of an upgrade over say Ego?

          Kruger though I wouldn’t mind.

          • PaceBot 2000

            A motivated Knighton would be better than Ego. The dead body of a motivated Knighton would be better than Ego.

      • PaceBot 2000

        Speaking of Landon Cohen, we just cut Keith Browner. I was sure he’d stick.

  • willbest

    Meanwhile, Kaep has doubled down and will not stand until things change bit.

    • AlbertInTucson

      “Kaepernick was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Heidi Russo, a 19-year-old woman who was single and destitute at the time. His birth father, an African American, was out of the picture before he was born. Russo placed her son for adoption with Rick and Teresa Kaepernick, a white couple who had two childrenβ€”son Kyle and daughter Devonβ€”and were looking for a boy after having lost two other sons to heart defects. Kaepernick became the youngest of their three children. He lived in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, until age four, and attended grade school in Turlock, California.” -Wiki

      • willbest

        This is all about pussy. Kaep converted to Islam for his fiance DJ Nessa Diab who is a black lives matters activist.

        • Huge Bear’s Penis

          I just googled her. I am pretty sure I would convert to Islam for her.

          • willbest

            In that sense, I can understand Kaep’s white oppression. People of color aren’t as prone to pussy worship as whites.

          • Huge Bear’s Penis

            I don’t even know how to respond to that. Are you just fucking with me now?

          • willbest

            Yes and no. I was definitely attempting to draw a contrast between the way women are treated in Northern European dominated culture vs. the way they are treated everywhere else. The joke was the implication that the rest of the world is doing it right. Though there are days when I think it would be so much easier…

        • Sactowns#1

          Dude made a pretty salient point when he said we have standardized training and required schooling for cosmetologists but not for police.

          • Also find it disturbing that a person can be “too smart” to be an officer. Like, wtf?

            Is this the Departed?

          • willbest

            Higher IQ individuals have chain of command problems. This can cause more problems than solutions it may bring.

          • willbest

            You are either ignorant or deliberately deceitful and hanging your entire argument on the word “standardized”

            You need to have a high school diploma or a GED; pass an IQ, physical, psychological, polygraph, and background test. Then you get to go through police academy. And that is where the “non-standardized” nonsense goes in because some departments accept just the basic one offered by the state, and other departments require additional training or a replacement police academy (which also must meet state approval).

            Its not day one application, day to here is your gun go shoot some suspicious looking minorities.

            Although maybe your beef is with requiring face painters to get licensed and for that I am in complete agreement. But then the whole purpose of the licenses is to turn entrepreneurs into employees for the chains and to restrict their competition under the guise that it enhances consumer quality.

            But lets talk about standardized training. Presumably your police officers should be from different cultures and they will be primarily interacting with other people of different cultures. In what universe is teaching them all in the same manner even a remotely good idea? That would only work in a homogenous country/state/city.

          • Sactowns#1
          • willbest

            The Supreme Court, historically, takes a dim view with the federal government mandating health and safety standards to the state. The federal government has historically gotten around this by the carrot method. You implement our alcohol drinking age and our highway speed limit or no federal highway dollars for you.

            This is why each state will be responsible for the licensing of the various professions within its borders. Its also why there won’t be a uniform national standard, but that is far different than saying there is no standards. Even the article lays out good reasons to allow police to serve temporarily before academy training. Though it does not excuse the issue of placing people in the field unprepared for what they might encounter.

            Incidentally, states also allow law students who have not yet completed their law degree or passed the bar practice law in limited capacity under supervision. You could argue that lawyers can’t kill anybody but the area they primarily let students do this is in criminal defense since pretty much every state is starved for manpower in the public defenders office.

            except for the police academy and a 4yr degree. The cosmetologist by my house used to do anal gangbangs straight to video. VHS man.

    whoa dude, Paul Kruger is on the street????? Fucking spend that cash, McPhee is done. His leg is as big as mine and he’s limping around. Holy shit make the call right fucking now.

    • CanadaBear

      Fox will tell the press the extent of McPhee’s injury at the end of the season.

    • Scharfinator

      Agree with teh depth, not sure on McPhee.

  • Sactowns#1

    The dropped passes, people falling down on routes and Cutty holding the ball far too long were all my top concerns. Kicker is a ways lower on my list.

    • willbest

      It shouldn’t be (ed. low on your list), but the fact that it is is a bit depressing.

  • FF update

    Ok, so far we only have 7 (out of 12). As such, don’t think we’ll have enough for draft tonight.

    So I’m pushing the draft back to fri. IF we can’t get 12 by then, then hopefully we can at least get 10 and ride with that.

    So

    New Draft Time/Date. Fri, Sept 2, 10Pm (eastern).

    If anyone has any issues with it, lemme know. Ender, if u can notify Artoo that’d be cool.

    Some regs that usu play, Johhny, MBHP, etc, send me ur emails so I can invite.

    Sac, I think you’re in. Or that might’ve been Trac.

    Either way, lemme know.

    email me 4 invite at

    toxicgnosis@gmail.com

    • PaceBot 2000

      just sent it

      • Just sent the invite. U should be in like schwinn.

        Hopefullly Irish can join but Bangkok time is a biatch

        • PaceBot 2000

          Pace Bot 2000, operational and ready to succeed with a team of coachable, high character, high motor, undersized and not really physically imposing white devils.

          • If you win with an all-white team, you will be an FF legend.

            Esp considering there are no starting white HBs that I know of.

          • willbest

            Danny Woodhead is probably the only one you would consider starting in a 12 team league (assuming you are 2 RBs and its a bye week). Otherwise you are stuck with some FBs and hoping they get the goal line carry (Unrein!).

            The good news is you could draft quality black players and then trade them to ensure you had Brees/Rodgers/Edelman/Nelson/Gronk

            But then putting on my lawyer specs he clearly is leaving himself open for black players with white in their name. For example, NE RB James White.

            I would also push the argument before the court that any player with an extra white first name like Melvin Gordon or Spencer Ware should be fair game, as well as John Crockett who could be the great grandson of Davy for all I know.

            Getting a defense though that might take some wiggle room. Maybe any D that starts 6 of 5 white players is fair game

    • Sactowns#1

      I’m in but I haven’t had time to respond to your invite yet. I will do so this afternoon.

      • Ok. So u got it.

        SO it was Trac. I guess Trac is alive after all.

        • Sactowns#1

          Is this the POX league? If so it looks like we have all 12 slots filled.

          • No, it’s the PaceBots2019 one.

            The POX one I would have to reactivate, but wasn’t sure if everyone would do it again.

            Maybe next year I’ll just reactivate the same league, but then, no new players.

            Just msg me ur email and I’ll send the invite

          • 505Bears

            Yeah, I just thought it was to re-activate. Is it still an ESPN league? You can email me at: mhsamud@gmail.com

    • MB30SD

      I’m still not playing… that said, my team name is gorked by seals

      • wuss. Hey, if u can, send me MBHPs email. He said u had all his info, and he hasn’t been around much.

        I think I might have an older email of his.

        Hits me up.

  • C Stork is available again. He “failed” his Redskin’s physical.

    Stork has contemplated retirement, but he could at least be a bandaid for us for a year.

    • willbest

      A player like that you don’t sign without an injury waiver, and he probably would rather retire.

  • Keep an eye. We got the $.

    The Broncos have asked P Britton Colquitt to accept a pay cut.

    If Colquitt doesn’t accept, he will likely be released. The Broncos would then roll with rookie Riley Dixon at punter. Once oneof the NFL’s highest-paid punters, Colquitt is entering a contract year. He is owed $3.25 million. – Roto

    • Meh. But it’s depth.

      49ers released RT Erik Pears.

      They also cut tight end Rory “Busta” Anderson. Pears started all 16 games for the Niners last season but couldn’t hold off Trent Brown in camp. The 34-year-old should land a backup gig in relatively short order despite his struggles last year. Roto

      • willbest

        can he flex if Leno goes down?

        • Pretty sure he played RT, so maybe. Not sure if the Bears would movie Massie to LT and then put Pears at RT in that scenario. But what other OT do we have now?

          • willbest

            I don’t care if I am a beggar, I am going to be choosey dammit!

          • There’s still gonna be some more cuts which should yield choicer options, but really these are borderline PS players.

    • S Major Wright is free! Any takers? I never thought he was horrible. And he’s only 28.

      Not sure if he’d fit in our new system though.

      • Scharfinator

        Ooof, can’t tell if you’re serious.

        Then again, it was hard to tell where Conte ended and Wright began in that mess.

        Until Conte got hurt and sat out that is.

        • I know. I remember Major having one good year, then the wheels fell off the entire D, so hard to say.

          He was athletic, which is what intrigues me, but if he got cut, and is only 28, might not hurt to kick the tires on him. The Bucs could just be clearing the Lovites out.

          I also vaguely remember Major doing well in specials.

          We’ll see.

          Oh, and are you down for FF this season?

          • Scharfinator

            No FF for me, thanks though!

      • MB30SD

        Noooo thaaaaaanks

      • AlbertInTucson

        The Bears were wrong to pick him the first time

        The Bucs were wrong to pick him up when the Bears dumped him.

        So, in this case…

        “Two wrongs DO make a Wright”?

    • And to update Bears cuts.

      Bears released/waived FB Darrel Young, DL Keith Browner,
      WR Kieran Duncan, WR Derek Keaton, OL John Kling, RB Senorise Perry, WR
      Darrin Peterson, CB Joel Ross, TE Gannon Sinclair and OL Martin Wallace.

      His tenure with Chicago lasted only a few weeks. If the Bears do end up keeping a fullback (they didn’t last year), it will likely be Paul Lasike, who spent most of 2015 on the team’s practice squad. The Bears need to cut five more players before Tuesday’s 4 PM ET roster deadline. – Roto

      This is to cut it to 75, then by next week 53

  • willbest

    RIP Gene Wilder

  • Sometimes, Roto can get snarky. Also, so Lions

    Lions placed LS Jimmy Landes on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, ending his season.

    Stunningly, using a draft pick on a long snapper turned out to be a poor investment. Landes will be back in 2017, where he’ll compete to snap the snaps that are longer than normal snaps. Roto

  • EnderWiggin

    There has to be a voice in the back of Romo’s mind that says: “Wake up dumbass, that’s two back breaks in the last 4 years.”

  • In 2006, Robbie Gould was 32/36 (88.9%) on FG, all of which were inside of 50 yards.

    In 2015, Robbie Gould was 33/39 on FG, but 7 were outside 50 yards. Inside of 50, he was 26/30 (86.7%), which is less than 1 made FG off of 2006 (27/30 would be 90%).

    Robbie hasn’t really changed in a decade. If anything, he’s gotten better at distance, as he’s now routinely asked to do 50+ yard kicks.

    What’s changed is the accuracy of the other guys. They’ve been slowly getting better, more towards Robbie’s level.

    • GP portrayed by Eric Roberts

      All I know is the fucker cost us 3 games last season with his leg.

      • MB30SD

        dis

      • Yes but think of it this way, without those losses, we end up with Karl Joseph instead of Floyd!

        Doesn’t that warm ur cackles!?

        • MB30SD

          sigh… we probably still would have picked floyd

    • MB30SD

      and touchbacks?

      • kickoff has shifted from the 30 to the 35 in that timespan, so not really an accurate comparison. Plus apparently the Bears’ ST coaches typically tell him to loft it and let their coverage team make a tackle.

        • MB30SD

          Uggghhhh, yeah great policy… because they know he can barely get it to the 10

    • AlbertInTucson

      The Professor strikes again.

      Cogent analysis, sir.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Or another way of looking at it, in 2015 Robbie directly cost us two games that I remember. Kickers are supposed to win games, not lose them.

    The new villain of the next Batman movie will be Deathstroke. Jesssssssssss.

    • MB30SD

      as far as I’m concerned… and I’m not a certified nerd, like say, butch is… but for my hard earned money, Deadpool is about it for marvel maings.

      Every other character is a fucking douchebag comparatively. Although Chris Helmsworth in Thor was sooooo dreaaaammy!!!

      (except any character portrayed by Scar Jo… Oh, and I really like RDJ in Iron Man 1 & 2… 3 was ok)

      What I would do to that girl in bed (and out of it): http://www.indiewire.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/black-widow-1.jpg

      • PaceBot 2000

        DeadPool is a direct ripoff of Deathstroke.

      • CanadaBear

        Her relationship with Sean Penn (he dumped her in a heartbeat) and Tom Green and Drew Barrymore both make me scratch my head. Doesn’t seem to add up, esp TG/DB.

        • MB30SD

          Hmmmmm….

      • willbest

        I will ask women which Chris is their Chris (Helmsworth, Pratt, Evans, Pine).

        • MB30SD

          I promise Helms.

          Dude is a stud, and if I were gay he’d be my crush. Dude is fucking 6’4″ and a stud. probably dumb as rocks in real life though. Want proof? He’s married to a 9+, but he’s fucking married?!?!

          • willbest

            If you are going to procreate (and he has 3 kids with her), you are hosed either way.

          • MB30SD

            meh, worked out for me.

            …and I guarantee that dude could close pretty much any chick on the planet if he wanted (along with all the other super rich/popular movie stars)

          • willbest

            I did read he moved his family from California back to Australia because people call him now rather than having to beg for work. I suspect the divorce laws are far more favorable there than in the community property state of California.

          • MB30SD

            yes, I can assure you that divorce laws are much more favorable ANYWHERE but here.

    • That should provide us with some sick fight scenes.

      But, Ben. Affleck.

      • PaceBot 2000

        I hope that he’s really of the several villains. Gotta have more than one.

    • SC Dave

      When villains start sounding like medical conditions, I’m out.

  • CanadaBear

    From another site;

    Good news: Eddie Royal and Zach Miller cleared to practice. They passed their concussion protocol.

    Bad news: Something fishy going on with Pernell McPhee. As you know, Bears don’t get into details about injuries. But, Willie Young said this about McPhee’s rehab and it’s concerning.

    He’s been busting his tail and that’s a credit to him to bounce back from any, what used to be called career-ending injuries, it’s a challenge.

    • PaceBot 2000

      the good news is that we have tons of caysh and if they think he’s not going to make it a white pernell McPhee just hit the market and his name is Paul Kruger…and plays the 3-4 OLB spot.

      • CanadaBear

        A little concerned about going from 11 sacks to 2.5 in one year.

        • PaceBot 2000

          I’m concerned about McPhee not having an MCL/Meniscus that works!

          • CanadaBear

            Good Point!

          • MB30SD

            You mean McFee HAS an MCL/Meniscus

          • PaceBot 2000

            eeeez got a mahniscus

          • MB30SD

            Caahmaaaahnnn! Dooo eeettt! I’m heeeahhhh! Keeeel meeeee!

      • AlbertInTucson

        Kruger had 2.5 sacks last season.

  • PaceBot 2000

    Man, I remember when I had a huge bone for Stephen Hill that huge WR….just cut by the Panthers. 25yrs old. 6’4 210

    • Does everything well except catch and route running.

      He was a “project” that we likely would’ve drafted instead of Alshon.

      Thanks Jets!

  • MB30SD
  • PaceBot 2000

    If you were PaceBot who would you be targeting off the heap?

    • For sure, Kruger. For now.
      Then I’d just wait till the final 53 when there should be better options.

      • PaceBot 2000

        you have to be targeting Kruger. I can’t have Acho being my 4th rotational guy WHEN Pernell’s leg falls off.

        • I wouldn’t even cut Acho. Dude brings energy and a rush. Just can’t really cover. He’s a rotational guy that they HOPE Floyd can be.

          Never have enough potential pass rushers. We can ride with 2Qbs if we have too.

          • GP portrayed by Eric Roberts

            Acho was one of the few who applied pressure to the Chiefs. And he plays ST.

          • Yeah, I agree. Acho is just a spark plug, and teams need those guys.

            I feel the same way about Timu. You can tell he just loves that shit.

          • MB30SD

            those are the guys you want, not some self-important, and mediocre, dumb cunt like kapernick

          • Irish Sweetness

            We’re lucky to have guys like Acho and Timu and Anderson sitting on the bench.
            On the O-line we haven’t even got the starters.

          • Johnnywad

            Acho runs like Frankenstein’s monster. If they’re hoping Floyd can be Acho, the Bears are fucked.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Kruger: 2.5 sacks last season.

  • Here’s another guy we might be able to scoop. THough back problems and linemen aren’t words I like linked together.

    USA Today’s Tom Pelissero reports the Vikings are trying to trade C John Sullivan.

    This explains why Sullivan was held out of the Vikings’ regular season dress rehearsal. At center, the Vikings are
    going with Joe Berger, who has history with new OL coach Tony Sparano, and who was excellent as a 16-game starter last year. Sullivan, 31, missed all of 2015 due to multiple back surgeries. If the Vikings can’t find a taker, Sullivan will likely be released. – Roto

    • PaceBot 2000

      Vikes will never trade inside the division….and if they do it’s because they’ve implanted Sullivan with Ebola to transmit it to our guys.

      • CanadaBear

        He’ll get released.

        • PaceBot 2000

          maybe he can come in and tell us the secrets of when Teddy will limp wrist it to the right flat or the left.

          • CanadaBear

            The BiQueen fans are going to be in for a big disappointment. Their D is good but it’s not other-worldly and Teddy will win a lot of games but will he win against the really good teams? I think not. The ESPN writer for those douchebags was super excited about Teddy throwing 3 long passes in a row (in an exhibition game). Really?

          • MB30SD

            hahahah, I was thinking the same thing… although they were all really nice throws and I was a little shocked/scared.

    • Another guy is the SeaHawk’s C Patrick Lewis. But given how bad they were last year…

      http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2016/08/29/seahawks-are-shopping-center-patrick-lewis/#comments

    • BerwynBomber

      Fair enough but just remember that a) we had the best O-line in the division last year, which b) was somewhat the result of MIN, GB and DET having really crappy O-lines.

      • Yeah, dunno. Don’t remember Sullivan. Sometimes teams make cuts though cuz they want to save cash or want “their” guys.

        Was hoping someone here knew if he was any good or not.

      single season penalty record in nfl history. Bears like those sort of records.

    • I saw that. Meh. Rather get more Oline, rush or TE.

      OG Scwartz was released from the Lions too. Might be worth a look.

      • MB30SD

        yeah, we have the cash to buy what we need maings.

        • I just hope to gawd POX have some solid players circled that might get cut.
          We def are thin at Oline, TE, and now secondary.

          • MB30SD

            yeah maings. just make some moves. show some effort. make some shit happen
