Finding A Quarterback: There’s Something Special About DeShaun Watson

| April 5th, 2017

When you really think about the things that make quarterbacks great, you end up pinpointing traits Clemson’s DeShaun Watson has already displayed.

Being great in college doesn’t mean a player will be great in the NFL, but it’s the closest league we have to an apples-to-apples comparison and Watson was the single best player in that league last year.

Alabama was supposed to have one of the greatest defenses in the history of college football each of the last two years. They couldn’t stop Watson. His performance in the National Championship Game two years ago was impressive. And it pissed Alabama off. With one of the greatest defensive minds in the sport designing their game plan and a roster full of future NFL stars, Alabama was determined to stop Watson last year.

They couldn’t.

It left the Alabama players breathless and impressed. When you hear them talk, including Nick Saban, it’s like 1990s NBA players talking about Jordan; as if he was so great, they couldn’t do anything about it. His coach Dabo Swinney echoed this by directly comparing Watson to Jordan this off-season.

Watson isn’t Tim Tebow or Vince Young. Watson can throw the ball. He threw for over 4,000 yards (and ran for over 600 more) each of the last two seasons. Tebow and Young never even came close to 3,500. As great as Cam Newton was at Auburn, he was a running quarterback too. Watson is a passer who can run, there’s a big difference.

Watson has a couple significant flaws. He threw too many interceptions and he doesn’t have a canon. The turnovers were more a matter of breaking down mechanically than bad decisions. He also had a handful that were flat out dropped by his receivers. Even with that, he was intercepted on a fewer percentage of his passes than DeShone Kizer and a similar rate to Nathan Peterman — who people insist is an intelligent player.

Nobody questioned Watson’s arm until the radar readings from the combine were made public. I don’t know what that number means, and neither does anybody else. I do know that Watson can make all the throws he needs to make. I also know his arm is stronger than the last two Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks and more than half of the guys currently starting in the league.

Some have criticized his accuracy, but I think that’s mostly nitpicking. He missed on some deep passes last year, but was among the best on throws more than 20 yards down the field two years ago. Pro Football Focus has his adjusted completion percentage third overall last year and he was second on throws between 21 and 30 yards.

My comp for Watson is Russell Wilson. His passes might not always be the prettiest, but they usually get where they need to and he makes a ton of plays with his feet.

Where Watson separates himself is all the intangibles you hear so much about. By all accounts, teammates love him and he gets the most out of them. At the biggest moments of the biggest games, Watson makes plays. There are so few guys who do that.

Will he be able to do it in the NFL? Hell, that’s anyone’s guess. Just like it is with any player at any position. The draft is a crap shoot at every position, especially quarterback. The next person to master it will be the first. But if I’m betting my job on somebody, I’m going to bet it on somebody who has already shown everything a quarterback needs to succeed in the NFL.

    Sounds like a solid guy to have on your roster. Sounds very much like Russell Wilson. Riding the bench for a year or two is something that has been provided for him, the framework is there behind Glennon and Sanchize for him to sit and watch. If Pace picks one, I hope it’s him.

    • MB30SD

      Agree… The others are 1 year oks (not even wonders) and a handful of cucks

      • Ososfan

        Welcome to the dark side haha.

  • Redflagdan

    Watson would be my choice but I just don’t see it happening.

  • I’m with Andrew on this one. People say Watson’s game can’t translate to the NFL, but he’s shown 2x now on the biggest stage that he can perform well against an NFL-caliber defense.

    • Bender McLugh

      if it’s going to be QB this year instead of next then Watson should be the choice. I just hope there’s a viable FS available with the next pick or after.

      • S is supposed to be really deep in this draft. There should be a quality S in round 2 who can step in and start.

        Besides, if it comes down to a starting QB or starting FS, there’s no choice which one I’d prefer.

        • King of DBB

          I keep saying this is Westworld’s 3rd draft.

          As such – this is usually where a GM goes and gets his QB. Glennon is structured as a short term guy, so I would not be shocked to see them take Watson.

          NFL.com has the Bears picking Lattimore now.

          • MB30SD

            What in thee?!? Dude has 1.5 hammies

      • Irish Sweetness

        Budda looks like a baller. I’d be cool with Watson and Budda …

    • SC Dave

      Alabama is not an NFL calibre defense. Sorry.

      • MB30SD

        It’s the closest thing in college… And I think that was his point. Multiply that x 5… Or whatever

    • You think Watson could take the punishment Bama gave Watson across 16 games for the next 10 years?

      NFL Ds have made Cam look like a grandpa, and given Roth some thoughts about retirement at 33, and they’re much bigger.

      • Bender McLugh

        Roth is an unfair comp, though, he holds onto the ball longer than anyone to ever play the position.

        • BerwynBomber

          Except Rodgers. But I get your point.

        • Both have been getting punished for a few seasons, and it’s showing.
          Watson is not nearly as big as either, so he’d get crushed.

          Luck is kinda entering that territory too.

  • KentuckyBearsFan

    I remember years ago watching a Syracuse QB I had never heard of (I don’t really watch college)make some huge throws in a big college game. He just looked the part. That was Donovan McNabb who made the pro bowl enough times for all his ego flaws.

    • MB30SD

      Watson is not like McNabb. In any way

      • 505Bears

        Well….one way

        • MB30SD

          haha… Racist!!

      • KentuckyBearsFan

        I get that. Reading the above made me think “sounds like Russell Wilson” before Wilson’s name was brought up.

        • MB30SD

          RG IV

  • Vince Young had perhaps the greatest QB game in the biggest college stage.

    How’d that turn out?

    The major issue with Watson’s inaccuracy and INTs is that it came in a JR. high system. 1 read, maybe 2, run.

    The throws were pre-determined, so there’s major questions if he can actually learn an NFL playbook, digest it, go through progressions, recognize Ds, make correct audibles or have the footwork to play under center (has he ever bootlegged? Thrown a Slugo route? 15 yd out?). Ya know, NFL QB stuff that should’ve been 2nd nature by now.

    Watson might compare to Mariotta in some sense, except Mariotta was more accurate and seemed to make better decisions (hence Mariotta’s 7ints vs 17 for Watson).

    Dunno about the Wilson comp. Didn’t Wilson come from an NFL O? From what I remember, he had everything except size coming out of college (had big hands though. Yuge).

    All QBs in this class come with risks, but who’s the last QB to succeed coming from that O?

    It’s a tough sell for #3.

    Like I said before, a GM would totally have to believe that Watson’s intangibles will make him over come the mickeymouse offense that has handicapped his progress and maybe instincts (when the shit hits the fan, QBs revert back to what they’re used to, which in Watson’s case is tucking it and running).

  • MB30SD

    RG IV

    Kids got stones, but he almost died on the field 3 times in the nat champ game alone. No thanks.

    That and him and trubinsky are massive reaches with 15 guys ranked ahead of them. Please don’t be the browns, Titans, jags(off) pace.

    Just don’t do it. Take the # 3 or 4 ranked player.

    Adams or Thomas… It really is that easy. Like, really.

    Right Dave?

    • evantonio

      you dolt. he’s writing this article because he knows the Jets GM is a regular reader. on seeing this article, Maccagnan will convince his bosses to sell the farm to move up to the 3 spot.

        Dude, totally forgot!

        Jeff has nothing to do with it. This is about Disqus deciding which communities get to use its commenting system.

        • MB30SD

          Oh Jesus Christ will… Stop being the stick in the mud. I read the damn article

        • Bender McLugh

          agreed with MB, read the article jeesh man 😉

  • SC Dave

    Some of us, yes.

  • BearDown100393

    Half of the country still thinks there is something special about Tim Tebow as well.

    • Frank Schoenburg

      Yes!

    • Ososfan

      I’m a Mets fan and disliked all the Tebow hoopla

  • willbest
  • Ososfan

    Would it be a crazy notion to draft OJ Howard if both Thomas and Garrett are taken? I know our secondary needs a lot of work but Howard looks really really really special fellas…

    • Bender McLugh

      it was mentioned last thread by several here. It wouldn’t address the glaring need but it has the same potential to set the TE position for years to come. Looks like a total stud.

      • Bender McLugh

        edit: glaring need at S

      • Ososfan

        Oh snap, missed last thread. Thanks or the input, I totally understand, I just think Howard would help the run as he’s a decent blocker and an amazing athlete with hands. Our TE’s are either old or unproven or more one dimensional…imo

        • Bender McLugh

          yeah he’s one of the other non-DBs I would be perfectly fine with. I really don’t want to see QB taken at #3.

    • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

      I am down with this. Throw away the positional value and get the best player. Bears have plenty of holes. A stud is a stud no matter the position. OJ Howard can be Jimmy Graham type with better blocking.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Exactly, if you want the TE you draft him. You want a stud back, you draft Fournette. The safety? Adams. But if you want your franchise QB, they get drafted at #3. And there is nobody can say Trubisky and Watson aren’t that. Nobody.

  • MB30SD

    Da fuq is wrong with people?!?!

    http://cdn1-www.craveonline.com/assets/uploads/2017/04/funny2.jpg

    That said, that looks like a reasonably deep armbar

  • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

    Continue to build the defense by adding to the secondary and pass rush. That will set Bears further along in the long term. None of the top QB prospects are ready to play in year 1. What a waste it would be to pick a guy like Watson and Trubisky at #3 and have them sit behind Glennon and Sanchez for 1 year at least. Fans make fun of Glennon and Sanchez but Watson and Trubisky are raw as hell. Just watch their clips on youtube when Jon Gruden and Steve Mariucci put them on board. They are far, far from being NFL playbook ready.

    People often talk about taking developmental QB and letting them learn. Well, Tampa Bay took a developmental QB for Bears and let him learn for 4 years in Mike Glennon. He has started decent number of games, learned 3 offensive schemes and is more ready than any of these guys. Give him a strong defense, a good running game and 2-3 weapons (draft a TE, WR) and he will be good enough to Bears a shot 9 wins.

    And I would take a flier on Josh Dobbs, Kaaya type in mid rounds.

    • MB30SD

      well said trac!

    • Ososfan

      If we go deep in D picks then Kaaya, I believe, is a great consolation prize in the later rounds….

    • Irish Sweetness

      WTF?? That’s what ALL QBS used to do. How is it a waste that a guy learns his job from the bench. Steve Young said he learned the game of football on the bench behind Jim McMahon. That’s where they learn.

  • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

    At NC, Trubisky was completely silent at LOS. Here is Gruden teaching him snap count and it is apparent it is completely new to him. This is how raw these guys are.

    Trubisky studies snap counts under Gruden’s tutelage
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4PS5i0NLf4

    • Irish Sweetness

      So we draft Watson. He’s been better thus far.

  • BearDown100393
    • King of DBB

      Man he brought the jelly in his youth

      • BearDown100393

        The band kids could outrun him.

      • MB30SD

        the diabeetus

      • It looked like he was gonna stop at the 38yd line and take a drag.

  • Ososfan

    Wow, just saw a new Adams highlight tape. With Donatell and Fangio coaching him up, he’d probably the DROY. Completely dismissed several blocking attempts from TE’s/Oline? (in the tape I saw) just like a damn Linebacker. Wow.

    • King of DBB

      I think since the draft is deep at safety, the feeling might be to take Lattimore and come back around for a guy like Baker.

      • Irish Sweetness

        After signing two vet CBs?

    • The thing is, Fangio, much like Lovie, doesn’t emphasize secondary.

      Guys like Peanut, MB, etc were byproducts of the front 7 according to Lovie, and Fangio prescribes to the same philo.

      Fangio’s D is not some creative aggressive LeBeu attack.

      It’s missionary.

      Front 4 pass rush. As such, I think Pace leans that way, though it’s always hard to tell where coaching philosphy ends and GM scouting begins.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Lovie blitzed. He made his secondary look better by making the QB have to get rid of it.

        Fangio doesn’t understand the basis of defense. He has NO BALLS.

  • King of DBB

    More Lattimore talk. Lattimore was at Halas Hall. NFL.com shows Lattimore.

    https://dawindycity.com/2017/04/05/chicago-bears-2017-nfl-mock-draft-2/

    • Bender McLugh

      this pick would not displease, as long as that hammy isn’t serious. gah……injury picks are so much fun!

      • Irish Sweetness

        After signing two veterans it would displease. Folk think we’d be crazy to draft Fournette because we have Howard? Why draft Lattimore when we just signed two guys and we need a safety in that case?

  • King of DBB

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDD2R02Qcdo

    Length. Real length. Exceptional hands and catching ability.

    But OSU seemed to allow him to play his whole career as a zone corner and never a press corner. Very little film of him turning his hips and running with top tier wideout talent on Youtube.

    If he panned out then you have your guy that will get the Julio Jones of the world. Tracey Porter is done done and Fuller is a bust.

    Bookend Lattimore with Amukamara and add Baker in round 2 and the secondary should be much better than it has been.

    Personally his hammy issues – given Fuller I would think this would flag him for Pox. With White done plus Floyd only getting 50% of snaps there should be some pressure on Pox to pick a Game 1 starter.

    To me that is Thomas or Allen or Adams. If he goes Buckeye on this and he comes up gimpy in pre-season, Westworld is going to get some shit on his head.

    • Bender McLugh

      Fuller’s year is this for make or break. He all but seems to be busted, I hope not so

      • willbest

        Fox makes the call, but it looks like Pace currently has Fuller penciled in no higher than 3rd on the depth chart. Possibly 4th if they keep Porter. I would love to trade him to a system, but I mean what do you get for a guy that your DC essentially called a pussy? A 7th? Maybe trade your 7th for a 6th.

        • Bender McLugh

          that’s a perfect call, sit the kid behind guys that aren’t supposed to be better than him and see if he rises to the challenge. like I said before, I’m not writing him off for at LEAST 2 pre-season games. you know, the ones that count

      • Irish Sweetness

        Who?

    • CanadaBear

      You know if Fuller’s contract wasn’t guaranteed this year he would already be an ex-Bear.

      • Bender McLugh

        he better show up this year and stay healthy, the jerk

        • CanadaBear

          Real lack of fire. Not sure there is a cure for that. Hopefully he had an epiphany in the off season.

          • willbest

            I wonder how often it happens with 1st round picks. Get your $8-20 million and coast cause CTE and long term injury.

          • CanadaBear

            Probably more than we know. Not sure what Fuller’s issue really is but it seems terminal for an NFL career.

          • MB30SD

            it isn’t a lack of fire, the dude basically totally opted out of football.

            He had a run of the mill knee scope that should have seen him sit out for 2-3 weeks. around mid-season the DfuckingC of our team called him out IN PUBLIC for being a pussy and saying there is NOTHING medically wrong with the kid, he’s just scared to play.

            Total headcase. I don’t think you come back from that. kinda sad… but get this kid the fuck off our roster, he’s just taking up space.

          • Bender McLugh

            if putting him 3rd on the depth don’t do it for him nothing will.

          • CanadaBear

            If he doesn’t show any more enthusiasm for the game in the pre-season, he might find a new address.

          • MB30SD

            I mean sheeeeite maings. when your DC and coach publicly call you a fucking pussy, not sure there’s anything else there to do.

          • CanadaBear

            You know they are hoping against hope Fuller rediscovers his love for the game (if he ever had it) in the off season. I’m guessing they don’t think it will happen but don’t want to eat his salary until they are sure.

          • MB30SD

            I guess thats where we’re missing each other. I’m not questioning his love for the game… I think he’s terrified to come back. Whether that’s because of the contact, the worry he won’t be good again, or maybe even CTE issues.

            The bottom line for me is that this isn’t a simple decision for the guy, I think it’s MUCH deeper than that… mentally.

          • CanadaBear

            If he’s afraid to get back on the field, it’s all over.

          • MB30SD

            that’s how I’ve seen it. Maybe I’m wrong, but man, all the things I heard pointed to that.

          • CanadaBear

            I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re correct.

          • willbest

            click the mouse?

    • Irish Sweetness

      So we signed Cooper (who looks better than Prince) … and we sit his ass?

    He definitely looks like a Brown to me.

          Shhhhhhhhhhut the fuck up

          • willbest

            you a true believer? Seems odd to go after 1 person who didn’t even start it.

          • Bender McLugh

            I love the false equivalency attributed to her, the comparison. I’ll get out of the water now.

        • Sactowns#1

          Bwahahahaha. Oh man. The right will swallow any conspiracy theory as long as its attached to a dem. Lol. Tell us more about child slavery rings run out of pizza shops. Hahahahaha

          • willbest

            Is it a conspiracy theory? The leak to the media was a crime. I don’t think anybody disputes that. There are two paths it could have gotten to the media through. The agent or agents in the initial intake analysis did the leaking or somebody associated with Rice did the leaking after she ordered the information “unmasked”.

            So I guess, yeah my bias is that somebody in the Obama administration is going down for this rather than are career analyst in the NSA. But who knows, maybe there is somebody that fancies himself the next Edward Snowden in there.

      • Bender McLugh

        Not at all of course

  • Tortured Bear fan

    Agree with all, improve team and hold the QB till next year, going all for Garoppolo or for a better QB breed

  • CanadaBear
    • King of DBB

      If we don’t take him, I really think the Jags sprint to the podium and take him.

      The draft consensus is they want Fournette to put behind Bortles, but I think if Adams is there at 4, they grab him.

      • MB30SD

        Um, 4.38… fuck yes! If we don’t take him I will be pretty pissed to be honest. Unless it’s thomas… those are the only two worthy of the pick in my mind.

        damn, homie FLIES!

        • Bender McLugh

          that’s better than beast-mode Hardin!

          • MB30SD

            fucking hardcore. super impressive.

          • Bender McLugh

            for real. makes me think better of him at FS

          • MB30SD

            Um, fuck jes my maings!!

            MB was a SS @ nebraska… and look what he turned into at FS. This guy’s got much mo wheels… he should 100% be able to make the shift.

          • Bender McLugh

            than seriously I don’t know how Pace passes on this beast. Does he really think QB or Thomas would be better? okay, Thomas is a push, but QB? I hope GP is wrong and Pace isn’t going QB ’cause he’s in his 3rd year as boss. Hooker’s athleticism is still tops for me, I can’t let that go, but Adams showing his speed like this makes him right there or better considering his #fuckyouup tackling

          • MB30SD

            totally. I don’t think he can pass him up. If he does and he takes some 31st ranked cuck it will be telling.

            Look, if pace takes allen or thomas or even foster/howard/hooker instead, you go, “ok, he liked those guys more for whatever reason… they have WAY more intel… maybe he loved that other guy’s interview more, or whatever. And those guys are right there. Super close from a talent level. Seperated by a point or two on lists like scout’s inc…”

            but taking the 31st ranked player… and by all accounts the second best qb in a weak ass QB draft.

            FUUUUCK NOOO!

            Pace pulls that emery move and I’ll be fucking pissed.

          • willbest

            I still like Thomas. I think a good chunk of the reason Bouye got paid was that D line. Not that I think him (or Norman) are JAGs, but a great pass really helps the secondary. Of course last year it didn’t fucking matter what kind of pass rush we had, our DBs couldn’t cover anybody for longer than 2 seconds.

          • MB30SD

            right, so we have D linemen, we picked one @ #7 last year, guys are supposed to step up/be healed.

            We have an old man, a (dumb ass) UDFA, and a 5th rounder at S. One or more WILL get hurt.

            Sooooo… JUST from a bodies in the lockerroom standpoint we have to go safety. Never mind the 10+ years of abject dogshit at the position.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Pace looks like he’s covered at QB. I think he might draft Adams if he doesn’t get the call.

          • CanadaBear

            With instincts for the game, really good speed, a real lust to bring the hammer and the ability to get the D lined up on every play, he sounds like a FS to me.

          • MB30SD

            jeeeeeeees!!!!

      • Think the Jags almost have to take Fournette.
        Gotta get the ball out of Bortle’s hands, literally.

        I would take a QB at the top of the 2nd too if I were them.

        Bortles will be riding pine by mid-season. Book it, danno

  • Sactowns#1

    Will there be a Bears Blog shirt this year? Inquiring minds want to know.

    • CanadaBear

      I think you can get a discounted Jew Bear shirt!

          I would buy that.

          I was just throwing you some adams love, since pace isn’t a cuck and he knows adams is the man for us @ #3.

          4.38!!!!

          • Sactowns#1

            I swear if we draft that fool at #3 I’m driving down to SD and giving you a fireball and hot sauce anemia.

          • MB30SD

            dude, you are insane. He just ran a 4.38 at his pro day. He can be our Mike Brown for the next 10 years!!

            We have like 5 dlinemen that are supposed to be fucking making it happen… we have garbage at safety and have for 10 years now.

            It’s time.

            Ps., that said, I would be fine with Thomas too

            Pps. can we skip a week, I’m still trying to recover from this week’s session

          • Bender McLugh

            or Howard honestly. some form of man-beast please and thank you

          • MB30SD

            yes, or even foster man. Kid’s an animal.

            And even though I’ve whined about allen disappearing… by all accounts he’s still a beast and is listed top 3 by most ‘experts’… so I would get the pick and adopt a wait and see.

            Adams is by far my fav and the one I’m hoping for though.

          • CanadaBear

            Your enthusiasm was contagious. I won’t be pissed if they take one of the other guys but I’m really hoping they get Adams.

          • MB30SD

            who wouldn’t want Mike Brown in their Dbackfield for the next 5-10?!?!

            Fucking game changer/maker!

          • CanadaBear

            He was the heart and soul of the team when he played. If Adams has that same character Pace would be crazy to pass on him.

          • MB30SD

            from all accounts he does and pace would be, I agree.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Don’t we want a safety that’s considerably better than Mike Brown?

          • MB30SD

            http://www.nfl.com/player/mikebrown/2504304/careerstats

            you must have forgotten. MB could change a game single highhandedly. (See: the comback in Az for a perfect example)

            yeah, you mean HOF level. well, yeah. That’s what it looks like adams can be.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Again with the fucking ‘experts’. They’re not experts!

          • MB30SD

            well, they’re more “experts” than you or I mate.

            I think we can agree on that… at least, they have access to more info. And some are paid to just do this, so they have quite a bit on the line.

          • Irish Sweetness

            I don’t want a Mike Brown, I want interceptions.

            Flabby tits. That’s some African tribal knockers right there.

        • For the record, I did not succumb to the succubus, though veerrry tempting.

          When they say they’re going to cheat anyways with or without you, somehow that changes shit. Dunno how the psychology works, but it does. Begin to get all kinds of shit which SOUNDS logical like, “Would I rather some her get with some grimy ass low-life she barely knows, or me who she likes and has known for over 15yrs?”

          But, I resisted. Not even friends on FB anymore. Outta site, outta mind Let it be someone else.

          Though I do have a somewhat funny story about college butch.

          Once me and my friends came back to my pad with some chicks from the club. 3 of us, 3 of them. Worked out.

          It was already after 2 am, so we knew what they wanted. I go to my room, one goes to the couch in living room, I guess my other pal drew the short straw cuz he got the kitchen (small apt back then).

          So, this girl is giving me head, doing her thing, and RIGHT in the middle of it, she looks up at me and says, “you know I’m married, right?”

          I was buzzing pretty hard, but that was like a shot of adrenealine. I was in shock then got angry really fast. So I literally grabbed her by the wrist, pulled her up (maybe a lil harder than I should’ve) and told her she’s gotta go.

          She gets all embarresed then huffy, opens my door (half naked) then tells her friends they’re leaving. She storms to the kitchen and pulls her friend off her knees, while the other girl on the couch is spread eagle, and they all leave half naked.

          My friends are confused at first, then ANGRY.

          “WTF happened? WTF you do!”

          “Chick tells me she’s married in the middle of fucking blowing me!”

          To this day, I still remember what they said,

          “Aaaaaad?”

          Haha. Everyone had blue-balls that night.

          (Also, I DON’T count that cuz I didn’t know!”

          • MB30SD

            happened to the best of us (i.e., me)

          • dooooo tellll

          • MB30SD

            same shit, chick told me after. : /

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            had a chick tell me tell me the next morning, but said it was alright since she was going to file for divorce because her husband just got sentenced to prison for 5 years on burglary charges.

          • MB30SD

            Hahahahaha…. Awesome!

          • I don’t count prisoners or crackheads as BFs either.

          • Should’ve responded, “You might be joining him”
            “Why?!?”
            “Because you stole my heart”
            “”Ahhhh”
            “Just kidding. I’ll show myself out before I get murdered”

          • Fuck. At least she had the courtesy to do it post-gasm, give ya the old reach around.

            I think that chick did it to get off more, but…

            cock in her mouth? Early 20’s? Some discipline right there.

          • The funny part now that I think of it is that my friend who was getting blown in the kitchen, that happened to him TWICE where a girlfriend pulls her friend off her knees while he’s just enjoying a BJ.

            The other time happened to him on a Vegas balcony, and THAT story is perhaps the funniest story I have been a part of or have ever heard in my life, and that’s saying something.

            I don’t think I’ll share that one here, but to this day, when I retell it to some close friends, no one believes it actually happened.

          • CanadaBear

            If I was one of your buddies that night, we would have had an unpleasant conversation!

            I bought them breakfast the next morning. Makes up for not banging slutty chicks, right? :O

            I’m still trying to figure out why that chick decided, THERE AND THEN, to relay that to me.

          • King of DBB

            Can I rewrite this for you?

            So, this girl is giving me head, doing her thing, and RIGHT in the middle of it, she looks up at me and says, “you know I’m married, right?”

            So just then, I say “that’s ok sweetie, you can wear MY cock ring on your wrist.”

        • CanadaBear

          Oh yeah. It’s been a little over 4 weeks and my range of motion is really good. Still some soreness/tightness in the joint but that’s to be expected. Each day is getting better. I’m guessing I will be done with physio in a week or two. I’m riding my trainer at home so things will get better much quicker. Crazy what surgeons can do and what the body can accept.

      • Big Mike

        Shea McLellin, has to be higher. The excuse they give for him not being higher is he played so many games for the Bears. I argue that’s why he should be higher. The Bears played him because of when he was drafted.

        • BearDown100393

          And then wins a ring with NE. That ain’t right.

          • willbest

            He played like 63 games as a Bear but only like 6 of them in the position he played when he was starting for the Pats

          • MB30SD

            he’s verifiable dogshit. let’s just move on.

          • Big Mike

            It’s not right, but winning a ring is really all about timing for the back end of a roster.

          • Big Mike

            and because of how terrible we were, that shouldn’t excuse him from being a top 10 bust.

          • willbest

            No, what excuses him from being a top 10 bust is that he was a screw driver and we were trying to use him as a hammer.

          • CanadaBear

            A not very good screwdriver. Globemaster brand for sure.

          • willbest

            No doubt, he isn’t a great 4-3 OLB, but just being functional is enough to get you off the biggest bust of all time.

            I feel like Hardin was included as a proxy for Emery. So we are really debating which one of his awful picks is there to represent him. I always point out that Fuller was a worse pick than Shea. Even without Shea’s greatest moment, he still provided more production for the Bears.

          • Shea did break Vadgers one season. That’s more than Fuller’s ever done.

          • CanadaBear

            I’d like to argue with ya about Fuller being worse. He started out really good but that was it. At some point Fuller looked more competent at his position than CD when they played for the Bears. Somewhere along the line something has made Fuller anonymous at best. Agree about hardin. Since McNown is my least favorite Bear of all-time, I liked #1.

          • Big Mike

            No, he was not a first or second round caliber pick

            Mike

          • willbest

  • MB30SD

    “DaBearsBlog @dabearsblog
    If Jamal Adams really ran 4.33 at LSU pro day, I’d be shocked if he gets by Bears. That’s kind of freak athletic number Pace salivates over.”

    It was a 4.38 yo… and agree… he better fucking go to us. Although, something I just thought of….

    Who’s SF’s new GM? What position did he play?

    DOH!!!!

    • King of DBB

      Lynch will take him and assign him #42 to wear.

      • MB30SD

        fucking exactly, amiright?!?

        • SC Dave

          Hahaha…. so long as you land properly. You know, like NOT after a sack dance

        • Big Mike

          It would be nice to get Adams. But if he’s gone, A) we can’t fault the Bears B) there are a lot of nice options. Maybe it is Watson. The 36 pick of the draft will have a better safety available than what we have.

          • Irish Sweetness

            He can’t be gone before three. He’s a SS guys. The top DB never goes before #5. Eric Berry went 5, and Earl Thomas went 9 spots later. Adams WILL be there at #3.

          • Big Mike

            That’s what I’m thinking. But you know, it’s the beloved. They need a break.

    Not buying that Jamaal Adams suddenly reduced his 40 time from 4.56 to 4.39 or 4.33.

    This is simply not possible without some kind of shenanigans.

    A lot of $$ at stake. So the incentive is there for everyone around him fudge the numbers. Also, he should not be selected at #2 or #3 just because he supposedly ran fast at his school once.

    • MB30SD

      or he just didn’t feel great that morning, or was hurt (not injured) from training, ate something bad… millions of explanations yo. We’re talking abotu 1 tenth and a half here tiger.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Or the Pentagon …

    • willbest

      You don’t think that the natural ebb and flow of your body could generate a 0.17s difference?

      He could be 5lbs lighter now. Different time of day, different ground, better night sleep, more familiar turf, more pressure/less pressure.

      • MB30SD

        Nope… US cruise missile right in the ol ass!

      • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

        Do you know how hard it is to knock off 0.17s off of an athelete’s 100 meters time? Let alone 40 meters.

        Also if he ran faster because he dropped a bunch of weight is no good either. Safety is the most injury prone position and losing bulk.

        The point is he is concocting a faster time. He ain’t naturally fast. His evaluation should be on game speed and not one off shady 40 time.

    Wow- on Rashaan

    “Of the eight top vote-getters for the 1994 Heisman Trophy, three are dead.

    Former Nebraska running back Lawrence Phillips finished eighth that year and died in January after hanging himself in jail at age 40. Third-place finisher Steve McNair, a former quarterback for Alcorn State, died in 2009 at age 36, victim of a murder-suicide in which his girlfriend fatally shot McNair before killing herself.

    This eerie trail of despair also extends to the NFL, where Salaam played for the Chicago Bears and took handoffs as a rookie in 1995 from quarterback Erik Kramer, who struggled with depression and shot himself in the head last year but survived.”

    So Beastmode simply need un-retire, show up at Seahawks camp – say, “I am healthy and ready to go, and by contract you owe me $9M this year unless you cut me.” The Seahawks would have no recourse but to cut him – and then he can sign with the Raiders to play again at whatever they offered him.

    So then, why is Seattle saying they will only trade him?

    • Trade an un-retired HB with a 9M contract? lol

      That’s a lot of skittles.

    Texans claim no interest in Jay. But then again Rick Smith is a shitty GM.

    Jay is looking at Cleveland or retirement.

    • MB30SD

      Easy choice!

    • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

      Why would Texans want Jay Cutler – a known turnover machine.

      They are close to winning the division and conference based on a strong D. Jay will give the ball right back and make that defense work twice as hard. Bill O Brien might as well have kept Osweiler.

      Vince Lombardi once said, “Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.” Jay Cutler is in the habit of losing.

      • willbest

        Roll with Savage. If you get down 2 TDs, bust out Cutler. He might get you back in the game. Savage won’t.

        • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

          For every game where Jay brings Texans back from 2 TDs down to win, he give them a game with 4 INTs and strip sack returned for 6.

          Remember his 8 year record with Bears is 51-51.

          Equal good and bad.Not consistently good or consistently bad.

          Two steps forward. Two steps back. End result: team ain’t going anywhere. That is cutty in nutshell. Texans are wise to stay away from him. Every NFL team knows this. There is a reason no one has picked up him up.

          • willbest

            He would never agree to it, but he would be perfect for it. If you are down 2 TDs the game is already out of the hands of a game manager. Cutler might nail down the coffin or he might bring you back. But at least he has the ability to do the latter.

          • Being a relief cuck would be perfect for him indeed.

            But like you say, he’d never go for Savage starting ahead of him when he could be getting sweet ass-tans in Cancun.

          • A7Xthebest

            Cutler doesn’t fit the definition for “Cuck” but your hatred for him won’t let you see that.

            He’s a cuck… Just not in the same light as Hoyer.

          • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

            Even that kid Fales got a contract today. He hung around Bears forever without ever getting a chance to throw a meaningful pass. Another Tresticle and Emery legacy gone.

      • CanadaBear

        Would still need the aughts Special Teams!

    • BerwynBomber

      Would have seemed too charmed a life had Cutler been able to walk into a post-season-ready team like HOU and been the starter. Basically that would have amounted to him trading up on gigs after the eight mediocre years he gave us. Odd. (Though not saying it still can’t happen.)

      If reports are true that he doesn’t want to play for the CLEs of the world, kinda tells me he doesn’t have much interest in playing period.

      • CanadaBear

        Who knows if people are reading the tea leaves correctly in TX. Not sure why they wouldn’t take flyer on him at the right price. At some point, I’m starting to believe that pic of Jay was meant as his “moon” to football. If so, NICE!

        • BerwynBomber

          That is how I interpreted that pic from day one. Basically a kiss-my-ass-NFL thing. Wonder how that plays with FOs across the league. Trump-loving Cutty is lucky he’s not black. A pic like that could have been an unpardonable sin for a darker signal caller.

          HOU probably doesn’t want him for the reasons “Elect a Clown” lays out below. And for that I can’t blame them.

          Were I HOU I would look at trading for McCarron and then drafting a kid. Unless they truly believe in Savage.

          • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

            If I were Bill O brien, I would call up Fat Andy Reid and ask about Alex Smith. Word is KC is looking to move on from Smith. I think this is his final year of current contract ($18 mil).

          • BerwynBomber

            Yeah, that’s an idea but would KC be willing to trade Smith when a) they seemingly have no succession plan in place, and b) they just won the division last year?

          • willbest

            It would take Elway level balls to move on from Smith without a plan in place.

          • BerwynBomber

            Yeah, my take too. I don’t see it happening unless KC goes in the tank.

          • Yeah, they just re-signed Berry and a few others to make that run.

            Imagine if they trade Smith away now and start some rook like Kizer.

            That would be a TOUGH room to win over.

    • No one’s moving on Cutty (barring Bridgwater 2.0) til after the draft.

      So essentially, Cargo MAY get a call after Hoyer, Barkley, Geno Smith…and about 40 draft QBs including the ones from Devry and ITT Tech…

      Then MAAAAAAYBBE a team will send him a complimentary “meh”.

        Blackballed because that picture.

      • Irish Sweetness

        He. Is. Injured.

        • Was his brain inj too?

          According to Stats Inc, Cutler was sacked on 11% of his dropbacks. Hoyer and Barkley on 2% of their dropbacks.

          That is to prove what all non-cutlerites eyes already knew: Cargo holds the ball too damn long because he’s a slow processor.

          Nothing to do with his thumb or vagina, and why he’s getting ass-tans in mexico while everyone else is signed and learning new playbooks.

    @Gil_Brandt who gets his times from NFL scouts says Jamal Adams ran a 4.45 not the previously reported high 4.3’s. Gil gets accurate info!

    Now this I can believe. 4.56 to 4.45

    4.33 was straight up his homers trying to boost his draft stock.

    • CanadaBear

      Mayock and a bunch of scouts had it at 4.38.

      • That is a YUGE jump.

        From the tape I saw, I say he’s 4.5 flat.

        4.38 would be faster than Hooker and most of the CBs.

        No way he’s that fast.

        Prodays are infamously player friendly, for various reasons.

        Gotta go with combine #s.

        That being said, 4.5. for a SS is still good, esp one with instincts and smarts.

        • CanadaBear
          • “Adams, unhappy with his 4.56 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine, re-tested Wednesday and clocked an official time of 4.45, per NFL.com senior analyst Gil Brandt”

            I would say that’s probably more accurate, and also, insanely fast regardless. 4.45 would put him Berry range (4.4) speed wise.

            Hand times can be dodgy. That’s how you end up with Bo running a 4.1.

            Combine is more of an even playing field for everyone. Gives everyone more or less an equal time to prepare on a neutral site and electronically clocked.

            Adam’s will be a top #10, but will he go as the highest S to ever be drafted? Dunno about that, though Pace loves him some athletes.

    Walk in, literally only one chick at the bar drinking. Tells me hi just as I walk. Dunno how many beers in she was, but she was on break from work. Cute. Nice rack even beneath casual clothe.

        I’m keeping these in a file marked ‘draft clowns’. His draft bears no resemblance to reality.

    Congratulations to @OhGi_3Dawg3 on agreeing to terms with the @ChicagoBears #Bears

  • King of DBB

    So I’m watching this shit on NFL about Pro Day at LSU.

    Adams comes in 5 pounds lighter from 217 to 212. Drops that 40 time on the scouts. It’s a legit time, so either he was dogging it at the combine or the weight meant that much to him.

    But the story is Fournette. Dude did the combine at 240 and he came in today at 225. That’s a lot of weight to shed in a couple weeks. He wanted to respond to people who said he should be playing lighter. I do not know about that. Not sure if that effects his draft placement.

    • http://static1.businessinsider.com/image/56929e7dc08a8081028b856e-1190-625/espn-ran-a-segment-making-fun-of-a-packer-players-weight-issues.jpg

      Read they focused on Fournette catching since that’s his major knock. How did he look?

      If Cook didn’t come with some inj/character concerns, I think he goes before Fournette.

      And I still maintain if Mixon didn’t cold-cock that chick, he’s in the convo too.

      Didn’t Alshon do the same? He was at like 240 but dropped to 225 to “shed” the fat lazy tag, which apparently didn’t work cuz he still fell to the second, and even now no team wants to pay him what he thinks he’s worth.

      • King of DBB

        Well not over time. The Eagles took a 14 million dollar flyer on him.

        They could have built two Steve Austins for that.

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYZPEcwIb2c

        • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

          Alshon did not get $14 million for 2017. He fed that face-saving number to media and media has been lazily repeating that number.

          It is 1 year $9.5 million guaranteed contract. The rest is all tied up in incentives including availability per game with max value reaching $14 million.

          That was stunningly bad deal for a guy who wanted to get paid like Julio Jones and Dez Bryant.

          $9.5 million guaranteed is less than even what Pace is rumored to have offered him last year. I am glad he did not accept.

          • Yup. Reportedly Pace was offering a multiyear deal in the $12M range.

            Bet Alshon feels stupid now. And what I said was going to unfold happened. He would rather take less $ somewhere else instead of crawling back and admitting he was wrong.

            #KruetzLach

          • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

            My theory is Alshon was never going to accept whatever money Pace offered. He was poisoned by BMarsh as soon as Pace traded BMarsh. My perception was that Alshon felt indebted to BMarsh for showing NFL ropes to a clueless southern hick from backwaters of South Carolina. His loyalty was to BMarsh rather than Bears.

    1 – stay @#3 for OJ Howard or trade back if they get the right compensation and hope he is still on the board

    2 – stay @#3 for for a pass rusher like Barnett, Thomas or Allen or trade back if they get the right compensation and hope one of them is still on the board

    3 – stay @#3 for for Adams, Hooker, Lattimore or trade back if they get the right compensation and hope one of them is still on the board

    • no offense to Fox, but what he wants shouldn’t matter at all. He’s not here long term. The single most important thing they need to do this offseason is find their long-term QB, and Fox shouldn’t be involved in that process because he won’t be here for most of that QB’s tenure.

      I sure as hell hope Pace realizes this and has the power to ignore Fox’s now now now push to do what’s right for the franchise.

      • Bender McLugh

        then QB with the first pick cannot be the choice, but S or Thomas or Lattimore is. QB next year would be the better bet for long term, which would allow the D to grow from this years draft.

        • Irish Sweetness

          We go 9-7 next season … who are you drafting at QB ?

          See?

          • Bender McLugh

            no I don’t. you trade picks and whatever else to get your guy. Come on maing you know this

          • Irish Sweetness

            I know you DON’T trade your picks to move up.

            Who is the guy? Who is the magical guy in next year’s draft and don’t bother saying we need to trade up for the top pick.

          • Bender McLugh

            I may be off base then…..no one trades picks to move up in the draft? Or are you saying it’s not normally done and the results aren’t good?

            Either way, I definitely agree the 3rd pick won’t happen again anytime soon. But the QB’s next year, according to many an expert, should be > or = this years even in the bottom of the first round.

            Still, Watson being the pick wouldn’t kill the season for me, but those other picks MUST be great.

      • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

        It does not work like that, JWood. What Fox wants matters a lot. If this is truly Fox’s hot seat year, then it is pretty much guaranteed he will get what he wants. Old Foxy is no pushover. Pace just can’t tell him, “screw you, i am making picks for 2 years down the line when you will no longer be here”. It doesn’t work like that at all in real world. You can’t give coach an ultimatum and not give him what he wants especially for a team like Bears with as many holes as they had last year.

        I know you keep harping about first round qb’s but this years class of qbs are all big time project. All of them. Just how raw they are? Well, Mitch Trubisky, the top rated qb on many boards, does not know what a hard count is. Don’t believe me? Watch this clip and especially watch starting 3:50 mark when Louis Reddick rips Trubisky for having no clue about what a hard count is.

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtzkV7dEaE8

        Basically these qbs are babies who need to taught A,B, C of NFL and hope they become fluent in English one day. Why would you play them millions that come with #3 pick and then baby sit them for 2 years. That would be tremendous waste of resources.

        Also, I don’t quite buy Fox will be fired even if he has bad 2017. You can’t just keep firing and turning over rosters. A new coach wants to bring in his type of players and you end up wasting a lot of talent from previous drafts.

        • Irish Sweetness

          Let’s say it’s true. You can explain a hard count in about ten seconds to the guy.
          What’s your next real issue with Trubisky? He has the mechanics, the release, the arm, the accuracy … the only thing he doesn’t have is NFL experience, and there are no shortcuts for that. He doesn’t need to start this year or next .. and we’re in the rare position of being able to draft a top QB.

          People calling Watson or Trubisky busts are just talking out their asses, and the same guys that talk up busts year in year out.

          Yes, Adams looks like the best pick for us. Is a SS more important than your QB?
          Are they fuck.

          • The next real issue is if Trubisky can learn brain surgery while 300 pound angry black men are trying to decapitate him.

            That’s the issue with all of em though. History says that ONE of them will pan out, but as to which, beats the hell out of me.

            When ppl make the case for Watson I can see that too.

            That’s what happens in a QB class w/out Luck or even Mariota.

          • MB30SD

            even at at 4.5 dude has the speed and instincts of a FS and can easily make the move. MB was a SS @ nebraska.

            Here’s his tape watch some and tell me just having this guy on the field (in ANY position) wouldn’t instantly make us a lot better: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVcUGLngyrc

            check out his INTs… they’re pretty much ALL center fielder deep catches

      • Johnnywad

        I don’t believe the long term answer at QB is there this offseason. Do you?

        • yes. Pretty much every draft has at least one. The trick is to identify him.

          My best guess is Watson.

      • Sahr Gborie

        Watson is the best QB option in this. In next years draft he is a late first early second round pick. Why take a QB just to say you took one if they are not the best option to answer your question. That’s like marrying any woman who has 2 out of the 10 qualities you want in a woman just to say you are married instead of waiting and looking for the one who has 7-9 (possibly S.Darnold in 18) out of the 10 qualities you want

        • Irish Sweetness

          I agree. He won’t start, but if the team feel the need to draft one, Watson’s it. Trubisky will be good too. People always slag off the QB crop, but one or two always come out.

        • based on what, exactly?

          Everybody always says this. Wait until next year, there are better options then. That’s what people said last year when Goff and Wentz went 1-2, and yet most analysts now say 2-4 of this years’ QBs would have gone before both of those guys.

          The grass is always greener on the other side from a year out.

  • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

    Here is how I am thinking for Bears #3 pick. 3 tiers of prospects under consideration.

    Tier 1 – As close to a sure thing in the draft. Top talent, good college tape, good measurables, high on intangibles, no known serious injury history, plays position of need for Bears, ready to play week 1 in 2017. There are 3 players that fall in this Tier 1 based on what we know publicly.

    Solomon Thomas, Jamaal Adams, O.J. Howard

    Tier 2 – Everything in Tier 1 except some serious injury issues in the recent past.

    Jonathan Allen, Marshon Lattimore

    Tier 3 – Everything in Tier 1 except lack of sufficient experience and/or some character red flags

    Malik Hooker (also some injury concerns), Reuben Foster

    Seven players in the mix. If Ryan Pace insists on collecting extra picks and is lucky to find a trade partner, he can slide as far down as #10 and still get one of these 7 players.

    • MB30SD

      I think that’s a pretty fair analysis Trac.

      The ONLY thing I’d switch up is hooker’s lack of experience for injury concerns.

      Thus, I’d put Allen in that bucket for the same reason.

      As far as hooker’s lack of experience… I’d agree except he played for OSU and had seven… SEVEN ints with 3 run back for TD’s.

      That shit ain’t luck maings. 2 or 3 maybe… SEVEN!!! And he was playing all the big boys, not some east Carolina coastal state school for the legally blind here.

      Actually, come to think of it, lattimore has had chronic hammy issues, put him in that bucket too… Looks like I need a third tier of wtf emery-style picks in my analysis. Hmmmmm…

      • Irish Sweetness

    He’s not likely to be in condition to start opening day. Yet another “needs a year or two of conditioning” pick from Westworld might be met with some blowback, especially this summer by the press if the kid does not take the field.

  • CanadaBear

    Been reading a lot recently and one thing that jumped out at me was if the Bears want a QB with a second pick they will probably trade back into the first rd to get that 5th year option in the contract. If they don’t trade back into the first rd, I’m guessing a QB pick comes in rd 3 or 4.

    • King of DBB

      please God no.

      I am so sick of the Bears wasting 3rd and 4th rounders on QBs.

      Develop Barkley and call it a day. Jesus.

      • CanadaBear

        Think you meant Glennon. I’m not sure when or if the Bears have taken a QB in the 3rd Rd. I think Orton was the last one taken in the 4th RD. Those other stiffs were taken in the 5th RD (Fales) or 6th RD (LeFavour and Enderle). I get what you’re saying but I’d be OK with one in either rd but I would prefer Peterman in the 3rd (the staff loved him at the Senior Bowl).

        • Irish Sweetness

          The stiff that was just signed by the Dolphins ? The stiff that has been gainfully employed in the NFL for years?

          • CanadaBear

            Oh wow, how did the Bears ever let him go? How many snaps has he taken in an NFL game? The same number as a bunch of other employed stiffs. That’s your measure for a good QB is to be employed?

          • Irish Sweetness

            Remaining in the NFL is hard. The Bears thought enough to keep him around for years, the Ravens liked him enough to kick the tires on him and now the Fins have signed him. If you’re a POS that’s not likely. I hope he does well.

          • CanadaBear

            Never said he was a POS I said he was a stiff. Somebody that can’t get on the field after being in the league a few years is a stiff (and most certainly a backup QB). No other position lets you sit on the bench for that long and remain employed.

          • MB30SD

            yes, it is. you know he doesn’t use silly things like “logic” or his “eyes” or “everyone else in the NFL’s input”

        • I got LeFevour, and only prescribtion is more cowbell, babies!

    • MB30SD

      3rd and beyond will be fine with me.

      With #3 you lock up the 2nd or 3rd best football player in the draft and the safety position for 10yrs and with 36 you get the best pass rusher on the board. Seems pretty simple to me.

      • Irish Sweetness

        So why piss away a third round pick on a QB when we’ve got three already signed? Shaw is better now than any QB they pick in the draft that low, surely.

        • Johnnywad

          Zakly. Unless you see a potential starter that dropped due to a DUI or some other such infraction, (Dak Prescott) no sense wasting the pick. I’d be looking at LB, TE, DB and maybe HB with those 3rd and later picks this year.

    • willbest

      After watching the 5th year option play out, I don’t think its all that critical. I don’t see it suppressing many paydays. Perhaps just knowing a team can control you for 7 years (4+option+tag+tag) makes you opt for guaranteed money rather than the uncertainty of 3 1 year deals before you get your multiyear deal from someplace else. You never know when your leg is going to explode Teddy Bridgewater style. But even without the option you still got to fight through two 1 year deals. This also provides incentive to sign a “fair” deal.

      • CanadaBear

        Sure makes that fifth year a non-issue.

  • King of DBB

    I’m fine with Adams or OJ Howard. I am increasingly skeptical that Thomas game could translate to OLB in a 3-4 plus McPhee might have a year left in his tank (although I doubt it).

    If the Niners took Allen or something, I would probably still skip Thomas in favor of Adams or Howard.

    In fact – there is always the surprise fall from grace on Draft Day. My candidate for the “nobody liked him as much as the mockers” is Thomas:

      9ers will take Thomas or Adams. My guess is Thomas because he would fit their new 4-3 defense as an end and 3T. Plus more positional value.

    Gruden makes a good point. Trubs is a one year starter. 13 games. But he broke the school’s records doing it. I hate the word, but he certainly has potential. I’m looking at his gruden camp here, and his arm is like a trebuchet. Way better mechanics than Cutty.

    8 rushing TDs. 440 yards rushing. 30 passing TDs. 3,754 yards passing. 67.5% completions.

    In his only year starting! Somebody tell me this guy is an obvious bust.

    The more I think about it, if Pace doesn’t draft Watson or this guy at 3 then he’s a drone. If we want a great SS, then we can find one. NEWSFLASH: Strong Safeties are not found with the third pick of the draft. Ever.

      • MB30SD

        yes.

        Therefore you take the consensus 2-4th best PLAYER in the entire draft at that pick and call it a successful day.

        Welcome to Chicago Mr. Adams!

        • Irish Sweetness

          I think this will happen (if I had to bet).

          • MB30SD

            There you are… See.

    • I kinda agree.

      I think Trubs is the best QB from this class at the top (though I think Peterman is best after the 1st and ahead of Kizer in my book).

      Honestly, if Pace drafts him, I’ll be lukewarm about it. If you watch his tape, he makes NFL type throws. He’s the only one from this QB class who does that on a regular basis.

      There’s definitely some knocks on him as we all know, but I wouldn’t quit the Bears over Trubs, that’s for sure.

      The timing of drafting a QB #3 would be curious though. Just signed Glennon, Sanchez and Shaw.

      Also have a possible lame duck HC in a make-or-break yr.

      Edit. And by most account a stronger QB class nexy yr.

      Doesn’t seem likely.

      • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

        QB pick at #3 is not happening. Not a chance. You do not draft a project QB at #3. Why?

        It is a double whammy. You lose out on a better rated defensive player and so your defense will not make that additional progress.

        And #3 pick like Trubisky is sure to ride bench for at least year 1. No one, absolutely no one, says he is ready to start in year 1. So you make this huge $$ investment in #3 pick for a guy to learn the basics of NFL offense.

        Think about it. Put yourself in John Fox’s shoes with job on the line. Would allow this to happen? Hell no.

      • BerwynBomber

        “The timing of drafting a QB #3 would be curious though. Just signed Glennon, Sanchez and Shaw.”

        True. But Sanchez and Shaw can be cut w/out much financial pain. And right now I assume the Bears see Shaw as PS material.

        • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

          Sanchez will not be cut. There is a lot more to being an NFL starter for a big market team than just slinging the ball on the field. Sanchez is here to help Glennon as much as any rookie they draft right from game prep, film study etc. Pace and Fox seem to have studied Dak Prescott’s year closely and want to create similar atmosphere for Glennon and rook. Pace is not going to jerk around Sanchez and cut him in August. Ain’t happening.

          • willbest

            Sanchez got 750k guarantees, he can be cut easy.

          • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

            You don’t even have your facts right.

            He is on a back up contract. But more importantly he was brought in for a specific role. They didn’t sign him on a whim. His role is to mentor Glennon and rook.

            Just because they draft rook doesn’t mean they are not going to need a mentor role in the QB room.

            Don’t argue for the sake of arguing, man.

            Base value of contract for new #Bears QB Mark Sanchez is $2 million with $1 million guaranteed. Max value is $4 million. Details coming.

            Maybe he’s the new Hasselbeck.

          • willbest

            That doesn’t mean they carry 3 QBs. Also, its not like Glennon is a fresh fish. He was behind Josh Freeman, Josh McCown, and Jameis Winston along with having 18 starts of his own.

          • I don’t think we carry 3QBs (unless we draft a QB at #3). Seems like this staff likes rolling with 2QBs.

            a lot of teams like those older vets as 2nd string QBs to help not just in the film room, but on game day on the sideline. 2nd QBs worth a shit usually sport the headphones and are continually around the OC and QB on game day as an extra pair of eyes.

            Though diff QBs approach game day differently. Some just like checking out the photos or pad on their own. Others continually talk to the OCs. Some just sit at the end of the bench and sorta chill.

            Guess we’re gonna find out which kind Glennon is. And While Glennon is not some novice, it can be argued that Sanchize has way more experience than Glennon just from Sanchize’s rookie yr, so his input will be valued on and off the field (and if he really helped Dak, more power to him)

            Teams usually run 4-5 QBs in camp just to manage the 90-man roster. In season most teams run 2 QB’s plus 1 on practice squad, or 3 QBs.

            If Pace drafts a QB outside of a 7th round flier that pretty much tells you Shaw is gone after camp.

            Personally, I don’t know what Sanchez has to offer that Shaw doesn’t in terms of making the team better. You know what Sanchez can and can’t do. You don’t know what Shaw can or can’t do. Why would you opt for a guy you know that has limitations that prevent him from being a franchise QB, when you can gamble on somebody who might be a franchise QB?

            Granted, I have exactly 0 years of football coaching experience at any level. I just feel that, these people are all professionals and if you wanted Sanchez to mentor he could do that as an assistant QB coach and not take up a roster spot.

          • BerwynBomber

            Sanchez is being brought in as a virtual player-coach. Plus, as bad as he is, you know what his floor is whereas if Shaw stinks he is entirely useless. Also … it is Connor Shaw? You really think you’re missing out on a potential franchise guy?

            That sounds Irish-like.

            My bet is they will let Shaw compete for the #2 in camp and the pre-season. But I wouldn’t get your knickers in a knot unless Sanchez is given the job over a guy we draft in rounds 1-3 the next two years.

            But Shaw? Who gives a fuck? There is a very excellent chance he is decidedly worse than Sanchez.

          • Irish Sweetness

            WTF? Don’t put words in my mouth. I fully expect Shaw to be cut. He’s nothing.

          • Irish Sweetness

            This is it, eh? What if they roll with two (like everyone else)? Can’t see them draftingh a QB in that scenario.

        • Yes, Shancize and Shaw can easily cut, but I just don’t think it’s in Pace’s psychology to give Glennon a chance, then almost immediately undercut him by signing a #3 overall QB which will predictably stir up a QB controversy (esp in chicago) before Glennon even buys a home.

          As Madden once said, when you have two QBs, you have none.

          I just don’t see Pace as that cut throat.

          Maybe he is. Maybe he pulls a Seahawks with Flynn/Wilson.

          But thus far their MO is to give 2nd tier FAs a shot first before moving on (in fact, one may argue that they give their FAs too long to pan out, Royal, McPhee, Tre?)

          • Irish Sweetness

            Trubs or Watson would take at least two years for the penny to drop.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Thing is, cuting Shaw wouldn’t cost much .. or Sanchize for that matter. Pace had to be prepared for the possibility that Watson and Trubs get drafted 1 an 2.

    Rickles dead at 90. Original insult comic.

    Here’s one of his most famous takedowns, during Reagan’s inaugural

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3kJ7VPJnmI

    • CanadaBear

      Just heard a Rickles story watching the Cubs game. He was opening for Frank Sinatra in Vegas back in the day and Don was single at the time. He had a hot date and asked Frank to come over to the table after his show (to impress the hottie). Frank finishes up his show and a few minutes later he comes over and says hi to Don and introduces himself to Don’s date. Rickles looks up at him and says, “Frank how many time have I told you not bother me when I have a date with a lovely lady?” Apparently Sinatra lost it he was laughing so hard.

      Jim Finks should get some special award for building the Bears in the early 80s which Vanisi came in around 83 and finished up with another great draft. That was probably the best 5 year run of draft picks of all time from 80 to 84.

      • SC Dave

        I remember reading about Finks’ genius being building *organizations* to be successful.

        He was perhaps the best GM football has seen.

        Started with a Vikings expansion team that became one of the best of the 1970s. We all know what he did for the Bears. Then off to New Orleans to transform a perennial laughingstock into a force to be reckoned with.

      • SC Dave

        Oh…. and I wonder how much of Vainisi’s success was because of the scouting org that Finks built.

        I suspect some at least.

        • I think that’s what fans sometimes forget.

          GMs are sorta at the mercy of their grass-roots scouts.

          If the previous GM sucked, the scouts he hired (or often, inherited) will be embedded in the organization like ticks.

          A new GM like Pace can’t just come in and fire them wholesale since there’s no scouting tree he can just pluck to fill those positions.

          GP pointed out that Pace is in the process of dumping Angelo/Emery scouts (yes, believe it or not, there’s still some Angelo era scouts for the Bears) and putting his guys in, but it’s not an overnight affair.

          Something to bear in mind esp when examining Pace’s 1st draft.

          • SC Dave

            Agree absolutely. I suspect that good drafting at New Orleans may have outlived Finks by some time.

            Hell, maybe a Finks hire brought in Pace for all I know.

          • Hm. Never thought of that connection. Good point.

  • Webb slinger?

    Ex-Browns GM Phil Savage believes the first-round chatter for Cal QB Davis Webb is “legit.”
    “(I’ve) had several NFL people tell me that (Webb) is the guy they would want to coach,” Savage said. Now the executive director of the Senior Bowl, Savage is involved in the draft process. NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah recently spoke with two NFL executives who believed Webb has a shot at coming off the board on Day 1. Webb himself said last month he was a first-rounder by “double-digit teams.” He’s becoming a player to watch with the draft three weeks away.

      Interesting article.

    • Cannibalism is repulsive (or as you would say, out of whack) to most western sensibility, but again, how much of that is conditioning? I wager tribesman in cultures where it was custom didn’t feel disgusted at the thought.

      Or is there an evolutionary root to most of our disgust at cannibalism?

      I read the journal of an 18th century scientist who was exploring the Americas, and he ran into cannibals. But, to his surprise, he found them the most “noble” of the savages. Reported they were tall, brave, fierce and smart. He speculated that maybe they were more physically domineering than their non-cannibal counterparts due to feasting on humans.

      He even took one cannibal back to Europe with him as his special guest, which obviously caused a stir among the aristocrats.

      Damn, I forgot that scientists name. Have to google it.

      • willbest

        As MB would say, there were cucks even back then. Or something.

        I would speculate that the same biological mechanism that compels a species to rear its young, and encourages cooperation generally functions as a detriment to cannibalism. Now you can find cannibalism among a number of mammal species but I don’t believe in any of them is it the norm. Usually it is brought on by high stress environments in a survivalist mindset.

        • Yes, but as the article pointed out, some cannibalism was ritualistic, in which case, it wasn’t cuz they were starving.

          So for them, cannibalism was akin to eating the wafer at mass.

        • SC Dave

          High stress leads to lots of things… first and foremost, I imagine, cooperation.

      • In searching for that scientific explorer’s name, ran across this interesting tidbit (since I’m a Kubrik fan)

        “The most famous modern example of “hard” (or anti-) primitivism in books and movies was William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, published in 1954. The title is said to be a reference to the Biblical devil, Beelzebub. This book, in which a group of school boys stranded on a desert island “revert” to savage behavior, was a staple of high school and college required reading lists during the Cold War.

        In the 1970s, film director Stanley Kubrick professed his opposition to primitivism. Like Dickens, he began with a disclaimer:

        Man isn’t a noble savage, he’s an ignoble savage. He is irrational, brutal, weak, silly, unable to be objective about anything where his own interests are involved — that about sums it up. I’m interested in the brutal and violent nature of man because it’s a true picture of him. And any attempt to create social institutions on a false view of the nature of man is probably doomed to failure.[58]”

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noble_savage#Scapegoating_the_Inuit:_cannibalism_and_Sir_John_Franklin.27s_lost_expedition

        One can make his own political-economic conclusions based on that premise.

            I disagree absolutely. There is one reason, and one alone, that homo sapiens sapiens conquered this planet.

            Cooperation.

            Any other opinion about it is, by all factual evidence, wrong.

            Edit: shit, not just wrong, but as wrong as wrong can be.

          • Think it was our higher IQ.

            And that higher IQ also lead us to conquering each other, and not just the planet.

            And almost lead to nuclear extinction on more than one occasion. It was not altruistic “cooperation” which averted it, it was base “fear”. Not very “noble”

            a lot of species cooperate. But you are correct, where circumstances force higher levels of cooperation humans are capable of greatness. But the Russian, Roman, French, Spanish, even the British Empire were forced to cooperate by external threats. This is why Empires collapse too. When those external threats cease to be internal cooperation starts to fray. We are witnessing it in the US.

            He also de-regulated the banks. Possibly the most damaging Prez ever.

          • willbest

            de-regulated banks isn’t the issue. Its their ability to create USD out of nothing. And the fact that they expect bailouts for their stupidity. If all those rich fuckers just lost their shirts (and then their lives when the pitchforks came out) we wouldn’t have to deal with this situation more than every 70-100 years because people would be around to recall the great banker purge.

          • I don’t agree with that. There are always threats to “unite” a country. after 9/11, everyone was as united as possible to combat “terrorism” (the new communism).

            Even WHILE combating the common enemy, the U.S. under GW fractured by his 2nd term.

            Rome was ALWAYS under threat.

            The most dominant time in their history was the Pax Romana under Augustus when no real threat existed anymore.

            Barbarians are always at the wall, it’s just a matter of them waiting for an Empire to crumble from within before they swoop in and finish them off.

          • willbest

            But 9/11 was a WTF wakeup call, and we got up punched some people in the nose and realized there wasn’t much of a continued and persistent threat. Certainly not one that required optimal levels of cooperation. And it quickly became the case with no genuine external threat that there was more to be gained by some individuals opposing the pseudo threat than cooperating on its end.

            It is also true that there was much to be gained by drumming up the threat. For example, we might never know the true reason why went to war with Iraq, but whoever it is who wanted it found the pseudo threat of fanatical Islam to be useful in their endeavor.

            (ed. no doubt, many will try to say it was for oil, or to expand Rothchild influence, or American empire, Israel or the house of saud’s bidding, get one back for daddy, or whatever).

            Empires collapse because of standing armies (according to a guy I spoke to who did his PhD on the Romans). which is exactly what is happening to the USA right now, and why they’re 20 trillion in the hole.

        As I’ve stated, I went to UM during Harbaugh’s years there. I saw him on campus and had friends who knew him pretty well. He was never a campus dick. I saw him walking by Angell Hall one day and some students went up to him, and he signed a paper and walked with them and to my knowledge never did a BMOC routine.

            It’s called simple fact/history/proof my maings.

            From Wikipedia:

            “He then served as the head coach of the San Diego Toreros (2004–2006)”
            – I finished my career playing at USD and they were like a really good high school team in texas – small and shitty for a college D3 team.

            By the time he left they’d won their division twice and were considered a powerhouse. And 2 players went to the pros (their QB I think)

            “the Stanford Cardinal (2007–2010)”

            http://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/schools/stanford/ there’s their record. In 3 years he TOTALLY turned that program entirely around and handed it off to shaw

            “and the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers (2011–2014)”

            – same deal (http://www.jt-sw.com/football/pro/teams.nsf/histories/49ers)

            of course the flipside is people get sick of his ass… especially in the NFL and you get what happened in 2014.

            Facts huh?! Whoda thunk david!?! I think four exactly similar outcomes at increasing levels are proof the dude is a monster at every level.

            Same happened at Mich the last two years. They were perennially in the shitter lately… he comes along and in 2 years they’re vying for the show.

            Yes, shows a progression and a pattern of winning at every level… Almost scientifically. It’s almost pretty in it’s form.

          • Also gotta remember the other options, SC.

            Let’s theoretically say that McDaniels, Patricia and that Stanford HC [or any other ‘hot’ hc) are in the pool next season.

            If Harbs is also available, who would you prefer for the Bears?

            When Harbs was in the league, he was in the convo as best coach along with Bill and Petey.

      we’ve kicked it around ad nauseum oso. I’ve been gushing about him for years.

      Dude is ridiculous. Every place he goes, 2 year and that place is BALLIN’. even if they were abject dogshit.

      That said, he’s being paid a fuckton to be the coach of his alma mater… where he grew up… he gets new kids erra year so there isn’t nearly as much ‘man we’re sick of this fucking psycho’ as you get in the pros. I think it’s the perfect environment for him.

      Now, if he wins the title this year (I was betting on him last year!), and maybe again the following year, THEN maybe we have a shot. And if he does come back to the NFL I think we’re a great landing spot. His pro alma mater, gets to bring the fam only a few hrs to his old city stomping grounds.

      We’d be a playoff team in his second year GUARANTEED. I’m hoping it will happen, but there’s a loooootta green between now and then.

          I dont know man, look what happened to SF when he left, that team turned to doggie poo poo.

          He’s a great talent elevator and gets every last drop of talent and effort outta his players.

          The reason I said it was if he did come as HC, I can see him wanting a BIG part in talent eval and acquisition… and that might not sit well with a GM.

          Thus, the next step is a more bellilucifer style position for jimmy. I’d be willing to be the first team to try that out. Shit, what we’ve been doing ain’t working.

          • Only question I’d have with Harbs is if he can work with a young GM/

            Seems like eventually, Harbs would want more control over draft and personnel.

            That’s just who he is.

            I don’t think there’s an in-between with Harbs.

            The latter, without the former as consolation.

            Harbaugh had nothing to do with SF getting their talent. He inherited a strong roster. Granted, he got more out of them than his predecessors, but then proceeded to piss everyone the fuck off, get his ass fired, and run back to the minor leagues.

            come on man. We’re not arguing over whether he’s a fucking megalomaniacle ahole, cause you and I agree on that point.

            Do you want a HC to come in here and fucking get us to the playoffs that year or at the latest the year after with a possible shot at a title? Or how about he shuts those fucking weak worthless fucking mccaskeys up… kicks that fucking cuck of a bean counter out on his ass and turns this franchise into a winner.

            As far as I’m concerned, we’ve been dogshit for so long, he can have the run of the entire fucking house for as long as he’s getting us into the playoffs. shit, put it in his fucking contract somehow.

            I don’t give a fuck how much shit he brings with him… I’m so fucking sick of losing that I don’t care if he wants to ban ginny from the fucking games as long as we’re winning again.

            3) a decade of recovering from the damage he did to everyone around him in the organization (which I predict as the trajectory of the 49ers).

            Well, fuck, we already had that. He was called Ditka. And at least Mike got a fucking championship, something Harbaugh has yet to accomplish.

            I want the next Hoodie, not another DItka.

            Would I take another ditka over the abject garbage we’ve had for the last decade?

            sure, does the local wiggly piggly have one for us to pick up?

            Bears should trade for Theo. I would be willing to give him 5 years to figure out football and put a team together.

            Can’t win a SB without the team, MB. And Fox went to two Super bowls, right? Not many coaches have done that, 23 in fact. There’s your sample. We have one of the best 23 coaches in NFL History (modern era).

          • MB30SD

            And you should go bet your family’s entire savings on sugar Ray Lewis vs. McGregor in a match.

            Dude, that’s ancient history fox. He’s so fucking done. Sometimes your total suspention and/or dismissal of logic, fact, and chronology shock me for suck a smart guy.

            I thought fox was going come in and pull a fucking Denver turnaround on us… John fox is 6-10 and 3 – 13 yo. You know the nfls nickname right… The what have you done for me lately league.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Yeah, he’s a shouter. He tries to be Ditka.

        all depends on the view from the front. if there are amazing DDs to go with that bit of chunk, I’m ALL in.

        Not really into skinny chicks any more. Found that thick-fit chicks love sex more, are better at it, and cum more easily… and are usually the squirters. i.e. I would absolutely crush that (again, unless the boobies were yucky)

          A dude I know says “thicker the thighs, sweeter the prize”, so there’s that.

            I don’t know about all that dave, but this one doesn’t look too bad

  • SC Dave

    Wow… had no idea. Chambers was a fucking monster, but considering we traded him after a nasty injury for *that guy*, shit…

    Of course, Larry the Tool’s “too soon to judge footnote” is idiotic.

    Oh and btw, I think the Chicago player in North Dallas Forty was about Wally Chambers. Dude was Tommie Harris++

    • CanadaBear

      Wally was the shit before he got hurt. Fast as hell and liked to mix it up.

    • Aren’t the U.S. and Russia backing different factions over there?

      hmmmm

    • willbest

      Hillary Clinton called for strikes earlier in the day, so apparently the difference between Trump and Clinton is about 3 hours of pacifism before the warmongering. First they got rid of Flynn, then Bannon. Neocons won’t be denied. Bummer

    • Cormonster

      Hopefully this is just some stupid posturing. The Washington establishment is creaming in their pants tonight.

    • What I’m wondering is – if use of chemical weapons is illegal under
      INTERNATIONAL law – wtf is the US the only country enforcing the treaty?

      Shouldn’t the other signatories be sending missiles and providing equal support as well?

      Why is it that we’re the only western power always sending the missiles and boots over (not to mention footing the bill)?

      • willbest

        Because when the UN sends in their peacekeepers the locals get raped? And you can’t get the 5 countries with veto power to agree on anything let alone the full assembly.

        Look, there is no such thing as international law. Law cannot exist without an authority to enforce it. There is no sovereign world government. Its legitimately anarchy. There roughly ~200 “people” of varying strengths agreeing to do or refrain from doing shit. But when it comes time to send the collection plate around to fund the enforcement, people can choose to do whatever they want.

        And then we decide how worth it is to us. Or rather our leaders decide what is better for them. Which is not necessarily in the best interest of the 315 million people living here.

    Please… malik hooker 2?!?! This dude is slanging propaganda

  • King of DBB

    I’ll put the Clinton-esque cruise missile story aside (Bill loved his Tomahawks) for now.

    I think it is important to put names into play this Bears season and tell the story properly.

    Two years ago, Pace fired Kevin Turks.
    http://www.espn.com/blog/chicago/bears/post/_/id/4696942/bears-part-ways-with-kevin-turks

    Turks was Angelo’s dude. Turks was also a terrible terrible football guy. Awful. Angelo was a shit and listened to much of what Turks told him. Guys like Carimi can be directly laid at Turks feet.

    Turks had a turrible Director of Pro Scouting reporting to him. That guy’s name was Marty Barrett. This May will be the two year anniversary of sending Barrett packing:

    http://www.windycitygridiron.com/2015/5/5/8554209/chicago-bears-part-ways-college-scouting-director-marty-barrett-josh-lucas-kevin-turks-ryan-pace

    Barrett was replaced by Josh Lucas, who vaguely looks like 1970s GI Joe. If I met him I would expect him to have kung fu grip:
    http://www.chicagobears.com/team/staff/Josh-Lucas/261bd488-9e44-442b-a6e6-6e145068393c

    Turks was replaced by Anthony Kelly. Anthony looks like Jerome Bettis’ little brother. Faces and names.

    Last year, Pace loses a guy he brought with him, a young guy named Joe Douglas who leaves as Director of College Scouting to go to the Eagles, a move I think he probably regrets now.

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/columnists/ct-biggs-bears-essentials-spt-0919-20160918-column.html

    Pace backfilled him with the guy who hosts the AV Club TV show, Joe Sidowski. Also known as the grown up Charlie Brown.

    http://www.chicagobears.com/team/staff/Mark-Sadowski/d305211c-cfcb-48f9-b3b2-a845e3d337c9

    So you git Sidowski, Kelly and Josh Lucas, but not the Josh Lucas from the Eric Bana Hulk but Kung Fu Grip Lucas.

    If they are sub par, there will be pressure. If White gets cut or never plays there will be pressure.

    If the D does not perform, the word is that Fangio will take that fall. I think that is understood. If it’s a team thing then Fox will go.

    When Charlie Brown and Little Bettis came in, they WIPED essentially every single scout from the Emery and Angelo era out all down the lines. Rumors from guys like Doomer was that dozens of desks and offices were cleared out and those two got to build the field scouts they wanted with dozens of their hires.

    This offseason they axed Stan Drayton despite Jordan Howard’s emergence. They axed Dave Magazu on the rumor that he and Fox butted heads about the line.

    If the running game takes a dip this season, that’s on Fox. It was Fox’s call to drop those guys.

    Magazu was replaced by Washborn, who looks like a secret service agent busted for solicitation.

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/football/bears/ct-bears-jeremiah-washburn-offensive-line-20170116-story.html

    Washborn came from the Lions, not a team known for a stellar OL.

    Again, I think knowing who is accountable here is the key to the season.

    • I thought Magazu got a promotion someplace else?

      Good digging. I thought I read that they still had some Glitchy guys, but maybe that’s much lower down the totem pole now.

      Anyways, scouts are the foundation of any team. Gotta get those straight before good drafts and playoff runs commence.

    • CanadaBear

      They didn’t axe Drayton he got a better job with Texas. He’s the assistant HC along with his other title. He’s making some good dough for sure.
