Making The Case: Jamal Adams, S, LSU

| April 13th, 2017

The Bears haven’t had a good safety in so long. So so long. Jamal Adams is a pretty sure thing.

Adams fits what the Vic Fangio and John Fox have looked for out of the position because he can play in coverage and drop down in the box. Pro Football Focus rated him as among the five best safeties in the country at both disciplines.

The Bears three primary decision makers – Pace, Fox and Fangio – have all put a lot of value in the safety position with past teams and have a very good opportunity to do so with the Bears, early in the 2017 draft.

Adams has good size (6’0″, 213), length (33.375-inch arms) and he answered any questions about his speed by blazing a 4.33 40-yard dash at his Pro Day. He glides around the field then strikes when he has an opening.

Does His Atleticism Add Up?

Adams’ SPARQ score was in the 36th percentile at a position that generally requires excellent athleticism for players to be successful. His improved 40-time would help his SPARQ score but he was average or below in every other athletic test too. Safeties who aren’t overly athletic tend to succeed because of awareness and ball skills, but he had just five interceptions and 14 passes defensed in college.

It’s difficult to evaluate safeties because of the way college offenses play. It’s especially difficult to evaluate a safety who had so many other good players around him. We didn’t get to see him on an island that much.

If the Bears spent the third overall pick on him, he’d be among the highest-paid safeties in the NFL from Day One. The third pick’s contract is projected to be just above $28 million, which would make Adams the sixth-highest paid safety in the league.

Overview

I like Adams as much as almost every safety I’ve watched in recent years. He’s a very good prospect, one that belongs in the top half of the first round. But safeties who really make a difference are so rare.  I don’t think he’s Eric Berry or Jalen Ramsey. He’s somewhere between them and HaHa Clinton-Dix, but even Clinton-Dix had more ball production in college.

I think he’s going to be a high-level starter in the NFL for a decade, but more of a Harrison Smith-level safety than, say, an Ed Reed. And that’s great, but I think the Bears can get better value at a more premium position with the third pick.

    Still my first choice, although if we could get him later it would obviously be good.

    The most enticing characteristic is his leadership, which Andrew ignores. Some guys just make everyone around them better, and Adams could well be such a guy.

    We’ve been missing that since BU, and I WANT IT BACK.

        • CanadaBear

          Works for me!

    • Knew someone who had a 72. He was fixing it up. It was barely running, but he decided to fire it up to get some gas, then come right back.

      Gas station was literally 10 blocks away, and between his home and gas station some dude in a mustang pulls up next to him, revs up, and wants to go.

      Luckily my friend didn’t cuz little did he know that his fat ass tires were a little too big for the lugs which were hanging by 1 thread. He would’ve hauled ass for about a block before the tires flew off lol

      Yay science!!

      The interesting bit was that it might help them understand complex knots like DNA. Amazing.

      Btw, how fucking creepy are the mitten, toe shoes…. I want some!!

    • Toe shoes. Awesome.

      One of these days I’m gonna sport toe-shoes and a fanny pack to a club and see if I can get a hot chick in them.

      I should get points for level of difficulty.

  • CanadaBear

    Everything I’ve read about him sounds great. Maybe 3 is too high to pick him but if he pans out, who cares? I’m still thinking they go QB if the one they want is still there at 3. I’m OK with whomever they choose as long as they turn out to be worthy of the #3 pick in the draft.

    • BerwynBomber

      I want John Elway, circa 1983. Is he available?

      • CanadaBear

        Probably not. Typical Bears luck to be up towards the top of the draft and the QB’s all have some warts. As long as Pace gets a blue chipper, I’m OK with the pick.

      • Irish Sweetness

        1983
        7 TDs. 14 INTs. 47% completions. 54 rating .. .and you rail on Cutty?

        His numbers were brutal until year 10. Just like Cutty, it took ten years for the penny to drop.

        Just look at Elway’s numbers and tell me you’d draft him.

  • King of DBB

    Theory one: Biggsy pancake theory

    Bears better have developed a promising talent at Qb when Glennon busts out or the shit will roll downhill on them

    Theory two: Pox and Fangio want to build a team w/o shortcuts and shore up D which means Adams Hooker or Allen

    Theory 2.1: westworld knows White is headed to the street or PUP and won’t touch a guy with injury question marks in the first round

    Theory 2.2: it’s Westworlds style to take the freak athlete in the first and safe bets later meaning Hooker is his guy

    • Sahr Gborie

      if you want freak athlete+no injury: in no particular order M.Garrett, S.Thomas, J.Adams & OJ Howard – all of them are worth the #3 pick.

      even though K.White had a clean bill of health, Pace has to be cautious. It stains your record if all three of of your 1st round picks have the injury bug. It means you suck as a talent evaluator

      • MB30SD

        yep. agree with this.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Where’s Watson?

    • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

      Freak athlete + Safe bet = OJ Howard. Hooker is definitely not safe bet.

      Only Myles Garrett may be more freak athlete than OJ Howard. Jamaal Adams is good but I don’t get elite vibe. OJ Howard just jumps of the tape as elite.

      The pressure on Pace and Fox is that their first round pick should be on the field from day 1 making impact contribution after Kevin White and even Floyd (he did miss 4-5 games). If they get Adams, the two starting safeties are Adams and Demps? Demps, Amos and Adams would all be similar style safeties.

      Check this video below where OJ Howard stonewalls Myles Garrett twice (5:35 mark).. an NFL LT would be proud.

      • King of DBB

        Watch the Hooker video though

        Clemson wanted no part of Hooker. refused to test him.

        You can argue that with Amos, you got your C-3 guy that can stuff the run in the box. Amos will come up and hit. What you need is not another guy like that (which is what Adams should be, a SS) but a sideline to sideline guy that slams the deep seams shut.

        • Bender McLugh

          this is why I’ve been leaning towards Hooker, but Adams would be good as long as he played the same role.

      Difference between a RUF and most of the rest of that list:

      Those cars will heat sink – or break. Bugattis can get to 240mph a few times and that twin V12 will heat sink.

      RUFs? You can take that CTR3 out of the showroom and enter Sebring with it. They can run and run at 98-100% of their potential again and again and again.

      I haven’t done that exercise in rehab but if she was the physio therapist … Went to physio yesterday (5 weeks + 2 days after knee replacement), rode the bike for 10 minutes, he tested my leg strength a few different ways and said go home. Loving that! Knee is still sore but I have full range of motion and it’s getting stronger. Life’s good!

      • MB30SD

        awesome man! Congrats… the hard work pays off.

        When will you be able to ride ride again?

        • CanadaBear

          Not sure. I go to see the surgeon next week. I’ll ask him when it’s OK to ride outdoors. I’ve been riding my trainer pretty consistently so if I have to ride indoors for a little longer it’s no biggie. Not to mention, the weather this year has been dreadful. Lots of snow (usually we get very little) and now the rain just won’t stop. Oh well, one of these days.

          • MB30SD

            ahhhh, good that you’re back on it at home at least.

            Have you seen these two… kinda sexy. When I get some extra fuck you cash that I don’t have to/want to spend on my kids, I might get me onea thems.

          • CanadaBear

            I bought my trainer in 1986. It has a few less bells and whistles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s one of those where you take off the front wheel, mount the fork in the stationary quick release and away you go. Up until the last 5 years I was unable to force myself to use it consistently over the winters. Now, for what ever reason, I’m pretty disciplined about riding it.

          • MB30SD

            good for you. I’m a tech whore, so all the bells and whistles would help me be discipline. I was pretty good about sneaking into the spin room at my gym to do my own thing (HATE spin classes)… until my schedule now collides with actual spin classes. No thanks.

            they used to have a single spin bike in the treadmill area, but guess their classes got too popular cause they put it back into the spin room and won’t bring it out again for me. : (

          • CanadaBear

            Never done a spin class. The thought of some anorexic woman screaming at me when I’m dying, doesn’t appeal to me. This will make you laugh. Back in the day, my buddy and I would go to the gym. He was that enormous power lifter. I would ride their stationary bike to warm up. It was one of those with the front flywheel that weighed about 20 lbs and you varied the tension by braking the flywheel. I would ride til I was warmed up (you had to have a decent amount of tension on the flywheel or there was no resistance at all. None.), When i was ready to quit I would crank up the cadence as fast as I could (about 115 rpms), release all the tension on the flywheel, go get drink of water and when I came back the flywheel would still be spinning. My buddy said every time I did that and went to get a drink people just looked like they saw a ghost. Fun little trick!

          • MB30SD

            hahahahahaha

          • Ososfan

            Haha

  • BerwynBomber

    Biggest (modern) draft bust for all 32 teams. Somewhat lame. And Enis was worse than Benson.

    http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/page/32for32x170413/biggest-nfl-draft-bust-evers-all-32-teams-all-flops-modern-era

    • CanadaBear

      Totally bogus. I never really got angry about Enis. He didn’t seem very bright and he did every thing the team asked (put on weight and be a load). Benson was just an ass. Now the Cadester …

      • BerwynBomber

        True but Enis was plain worse on the field. 3.3 YPC. I believe Benson was at or near 4.0, maybe even a hair above.

        Cade was outside the top ten, though, right? Something like #11 or 12 and third QB taken that year? To me, you almost have to be a top ten, if not top five pick to be the biggest bust, which is one of the reason the list seemed silly. Some teams’ biggest bust was some guy draft 29th. Or so says the list.

        • CanadaBear

          No doubt Enis was worse than Cedrunk. McNown is BY FAR my least favorite Bear of all time and it’s not even close. Had to look it up, he went at 12. Michael Haynes went at 14 and I’m still not sure if he ever made a play.

  • Agreed on not wanting Adams at #3. There are a number of quality safeties in this draft, and I think the difference between him and a guy like Budda Baker or Obi is not that significant.

    • Sahr Gborie

      so then who do you suggest @3? i’m all for OJ Howard @#3 or a trade back with the jets@6 and saints@8 if he is still there

      • QB1. Whoever that is for Pace.

        • Sahr Gborie

          Stop it Wood. We are not drafting a QB in the 1st. What is the fascination with this bum class?

          • Ososfan

            Hahahaha

          • Irish Sweetness

            Watson isn’t a bum. what have you guys got against being rated 150+ every year. A 3-1 TD-INT ratio. 67.5% completions? 35-3 as a starter (I think).

            How is he a bum. We’re going to make Adams a very rich man, when we should be looking after the QB position moving forward.

  • King of DBB

    Here’s where EJ Snyder shows his bullshit preference:

    http://www.windycitygridiron.com/2017/4/13/15283354/chicago-bears-draftwatch-safeties-nfl-draft-jamal-adams-malik-hooker-deone-bucannon

    I knew Malik could play the deep pass but I really wanted to discover if he was one-dimensional or not. So you can imagine my surprise when I saw him sprinting to the line to slam into running backs, and wrapping them up to bring them down. I figured it must have been an aberration because of all I had heard about Malik not being a physical player and suffering against the run. But as the tapes wore on the aggressive tackles at, near, or behind the line piled up, and they weren’t just the “piling on” variety. Many of them were solo stops.

    Uh-huh, EJ. You are so full of shit. Watch this:

    https://youtu.be/glWAP7vbeH8?t=632

    He puts the stick on guys his size. Sometimes. When he’s not taking Chris Conte angles inbound.

    Which he does. All the time.

    NFL running backs will truck this kid. TRUCK HIM.

    • MB30SD

      dis.

      That said, I would still be super high on him if he didn’t have the hip. He def is not a good tackler and only looks decent when the tackles are easy. When they’re hard or against big fast guys, he is a liability.

      • SC Dave

        Fast big guys…. like most tight ends and 2/3 of the RB in the big leagues?

      • Irish Sweetness

        As are all free safeties. That’s not their job.

    • Bender McLugh

      and? Free Safety man, don’t most free safeties get trucked 1-on-1 with a RB?

      • King of DBB

        Fair point. If the Bears had a stout run D and was needing somebody to run C3-high against Vadgers and close the seams down on him, just like he had Jordy Nelson win the fucking game doing – then grab him. The kid isolates the ball and laser tracks it over his shoulder like some freakshow. He’s an interception machine.

        But how often did we see Conte unsocket his shoulder making the saving tackle? Have we gotten better from that? We have Freeman instead of Shae in there. But how often will the free safety see the running back? You tell me.

        • Bender McLugh

          and that’s a fair point as well, however I think we are definitely better this year with LB bodies & SS Amos to stop the run, but have a glaring need to address covering routes, etc.

          I dunno man, I still really like Hooker & Adams both.

          • King of DBB

            Replace Crevon Shoots Blanks and his shit footwork and speed with Hooker on this play

            http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-cant-miss-plays/0ap3000000758797/Can-t-Miss-Play-Aaron-Rodgers-throws-60-yard-bomb-to-Jordy-Nelson

            Hooker would have closed on Nelson and picked this ball instead of being a full 3 steps beat

          • MB30SD

            I am seriously curious what kind of speed hooker had (officially I mean… sadly we’ll never know), and more so, what the injury’s done to that speed, short term and long.

            I doubt it was faster than 4.33, and who knows now. That’s my big thing… how much of an impact did the surgery have on core abilities like speed, hip flexibility/swivel, turn and go, etc…

          • Plays like that are exactly why we need a better pass rush or interception machine patrolling the deep zone.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Exactly. This is not their job.

    • The best running back outside the Bears in our division is prolly Vadgers.

      Don’t really need Hooker to tackle. Put Demps in the box and let the 8 man front do the dirty work while Hooker helps out the JAG cbs ala Seahawks,Cards…

      • MB30SD

        until his hip falls off. Remember ed reed limping around back there? Same injury. It’s no joke.

        again, pace isn’t going near him. He’s the k.White of safeties yo

        • Sahr Gborie

          if we are not taking someone with an injury then who do we draft?

          • MB30SD

            adams, thomas, howard

            In that order. My $.02

          • Sahr Gborie

            Howard – we need to score points to win games

            Adams – deep draft class so we can wait. especially if we can trade down

            Thomas – i trust pace to to find talent and fangio to coach it

          • Irish Sweetness

            WATSON! IT’S OBVIOUS!!

      • BerwynBomber

        “The best running back outside the Bears in our division is prolly Vadgers.”

        Strange statement but semi-accurate, though MIN and DET will probably have improved running games this year, and Montgomery isn’t bad, he is just more a 3rd down back than an every down guy.

        One thing the Cheese do better than any team in the division is commit to and develop long-term FBs. Had Kuhn for all those years, and now their Ripkowski kid looks like another version of that.

        • I’m certain that they’ll all upgrade at HB in a deep class, but as of now, I’m not sweating any NFCN running back.

          This goes for the playoffs too.

          Broken record. It’s a passing league. It’s a passing league.

          Pass sufficiently. Stop the pass.

          That is interesting about the Pack that they tend to carry a FB.

          But part of that might be because they don’t really have a feature HB.

          Always say, get a FB with lots consonants in his name like Juzzyck.

          • SC Dave

            Sure that wasnt Jizzycuck?

  • “I think he’s going to be a high-level starter in the NFL for a decade,

            “Cable (Nathan Summers) is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, most commonly in association with X-Force and the X-Men. Nathan Summers is the adult son of the X-Man Cyclops (Scott Summers) and Madelyne Pryor (Jean Grey’s clone), and the half brother of Rachel Summers, from a possible future timeline, having been transported as an infant to the future, where he grew into a warrior, before returning to the present. “

      • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

        True. But quarterbacking is not just about hurling the ball 70 yards.

        Like it or not, the qb job demands engagement and some leadership. It was failure of scouting by both Broncos and then Bears that they did not realize he was lacking such an important trait for the job. He should not have been picked that high by the Broncos and should not have been paid all that trade capital and $$ by the Bears.

        • MB30SD

        • BerwynBomber

          I would defend the Angelo move to get him. (The Emery contract is a whole other matter.) Cutler was 26, had been reasonably productive his first few years in the league, and even had his lone PB honor bestowed upon him pre-CHI.

          P.S. Inferior football acumen and poor mechanics held him back as much as his lack of leadership.

  • MB30SD

    Hodge’s latest mock: http://wgnradio.com/2017/04/04/hoge-2017-bears-mock-draft-3-0/

    This would be SUCH a bears draft! I can totally see it.

    1.”Some would call it crazy to draft a tight end No. 3 overall”
    2. “Great returner who doesn’t have a position,” they say”
    3. “Some believe Evans might eventually end up at corner because the instincts at safety are lacking on tape from time-to-time. He’s a big hitter, but his aggressiveness leads to too many missed tackles. There are obvious concerns about his size too, which is why I’m not convinced he’ll go in the first two rounds.”
    4. “Basham didn’t blow anyone away at the NFL Combine”
    4. “He doesn’t necessarily separate from coverage easily, but he showed in one-on-one drills that he has good hands and the ability to make contested catches by high-pointing the football.”

    I fully expect the bears to have this exact draft. Nice work Adam, you def know the bears!

    • Sahr Gborie

      I have far fewer questions about Howard than I do Solomon Thomas
      (what’s his position?), Jonathan Allen (arthritic shoulders), Reuben
      Foster (shoulder surgery, character concerns), Marshon Lattimore
      (hamstring problems) and Malik Hooker (raw; two offseason surgeries).

      This is what I have been saying for a very long time. J.Adams is the only one I would consider taking over OJ.Howard once M.Garrett goes to the Browns

      • MB30SD

        exactly. I found it conspicuously interesting he left adams off that list. Figured he covered that in another post?

        • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

          Yes, Hoge picked Adams at #3 in Mock 2.0

          • MB30SD

            ahhhh, thanks. interesting why he completely left him out of the discussion on this one though.

          • Sahr Gborie

            He left him about because there is nothing to complain about. No injury or character concerns. Day 1 starter. His intangibles are everything you are looking for.

            The only complaint is that he is not best at his position. Talent wise Lattimore and Hooker are better however they are damage goods.

            For me it’s between J.Adams and OJ Howard and I’m starting to favor J.Adams more because of all the TE in the draft.

            We need a defensive leader to set the tone. The offense has K.Long and J.Howard.

          • MB30SD

            Can’t say that fosho… Hooker missed the combine… And might miss some of the season. You just don’t know right now

          I was on my phone, so I waited. Yeah, that would be a Bears draft all right. And we’d find out that OJ Howard has a flawed atrial valve or some such shit.

  • MB30SD

    adams @ 3………. ADAMS AT 3!!!!

  • Sahr Gborie

    Finally down to the 2 players I would take @#3: Jamal Adams or OJ Howard.

    Both are:
    Immediate upgrade at their position
    No injuries
    No character concerns
    Day 1 starter
    Intangibles are everything you are look for

    The only complaint on J.Adams is that he is not best at his position. Talent wise Lattimore and Hooker are better however they are damage goods so he is #1by default.

    Question becomes would you take a gamble on a broke player over a proven starter. Think of this way, you have 2 choice:

    A Lamborghini that’s been in a few accidents that could work just fine or break down any time

    Or

    A Camry with no flaws other than it’s not a Lamborghini

    There is nothing bad to say about OJ Howard. He is the best TE in the call of 17 and 16. He can block. He is a red zone threat that solves our need for touchdowns- we need that badly. Too many dropped balls last season. He is a physical freak of nature. He and M.Garrett are the only players in this draft with the best size/speed combination: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2017/04/10/o-j-howard-myles-garrett-have-drafts-best-sizespeed-combination/

    OJ Howard = more touchdowns
    J.Adams = defensive leader to set the tone

    Discuss and Pick 1

    • MB30SD

      look down

      • Sahr Gborie

        Defensive leader over more touchdowns MB? I see your logic but I’m not ready to join the J.Adams train just yet

        • MB30SD

          howard does not = more tds maings… it = potentially more optys.

          if you’re going to do that, it’s more like: TDs (ours) vs less TDs (theirs)

          : /

          • Sahr Gborie

    • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

      Very Simple. OJ Howard.

      Why?

      I bet every week of the season opposing defensive coordinators will be spending time game planning for OJ Howard.

      And I bet equally confidently that opposing offensive coordinators will not be spending time planning how do we neutralize Jamaal Adams. Leonard Floyd and Akeem Hicks – yes.

      OJ Howard will have more of an impact than Jamaal Adams for every down they each play.
      Translation OJ Howard value >>> Jamaal Adams value for Bears.

      • Sahr Gborie

        Damn good argument. Game planning for OJ Howard, J.Howard and K.White (God willing he is healthy) will be every DC’s nightmare in 2017

        • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

          OJ Howard will be a match up nightmare. Jamaal Adams is a very good player and I won’t be mad if Bears picked him but I doubt he will be described as a match up nightmare.

          “My sense in watching the tape of Alabama tight end O.J. Howard is he has not even begun to scratch the surface as a receiver. I think he will develop into a big-time NFL tight end.”

        • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

          won’t be to hard to game plan against them with Glennon at QB.

          • Sahr Gborie

            Damn you Huge Bear. Why did you have to ruine my wett dream

          • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

            Weak argument for two reasons:
            1) Glennon, for all practical purposes, is a 1 year rental. OJ Howard will be on a 4 years deal with a fifth year team option. No matter what happens with Glennon, he will be here for Glennon or the next quarterback. It is always good to have weapons in place for the new quarterback. So Glennon at QB should not and will not be a factor in the decision to draft OJ Howard.
            2) In his 18 starts, Glennon made plenty of deeps throws on dime to VJax and some no name TE Tim Wright. He knows how to use big targets.

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            it’s a cyclical argument. just as you say no OC is game planning against Adams or anyone else on the D. I can say our DC has to have the tools to stop their weapons. Considering we play 2x against Erin and Stafford. The chances of us winning shootouts against teams with Glennon or any rookie is not great no matter how good our WR/TE/RBs are. Get the parts to put a good to great D on the field.

          • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

            Forget shoot outs, Bears offense today lacks abig time playmakers other than Jordan Howard. Adding OJ Howard will move them towards respectability and putting up a few points.

            Even a very good defense will be gassed by 3rd quarter if all the offense can manage is a bunch of 3 and out series. A few extra 3rd down conversions with the help of 2 Howards will keep the defense fresh and potent.

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            Better hope Future HOFer BRAVERMAN doesn’t hear you don’t think we have big time playmakers. He will have his Jewish God smite you.

        No flaws with OJ Howard. That’s why I’m torn between him and Adams.

        When it comes down to it we need a player that can start on day one. No injuries. No excuses. Look at my post up above: The last three first-round picks for the Chicago Bears have missed 48 of their available 96 games.

  • Sahr Gborie

    Jamal Adams does not have the record when it comes to turnovers. He does have the ability to close off a section of the field, and he is a player who can transform a secondary. There are also his intangibles at leadership.

    48/96
    The last three first-round picks for the Chicago Bears have missed 48 of their available games. In other words, Chicago has spent the last three seasons only enjoying the services of the top draft picks for half of the time that they should have been on the field. There’s no ability like availability, and Chicago’s top picks haven’t been available.

    https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/apr/13/ai-programs-exhibit-racist-and-sexist-biases-research-reveals

    Of course the algorithms ability to understand humans, and thus be useful, means that it must be biased. Because if they don’t respond the way the human operator wants, the human will look elsewhere.

    TL;DR : Google – we aren’t racists, our customers are.

    • “These biases can have a profound impact on human behaviour. One previous study showed that an identical CV is 50% more likely to result in an interview invitation if the candidate’s name is European American than if it is African American. The latest results suggest that algorithms,
      unless explicitly programmed to address this, will be riddled with the same social prejudices.”

    GP’s Ribeyes for Operators story:
    http://www.businessinsider.com/isis-attack-on-us-troops-at-al-tanf-in-southern-syria-2017-4

    Did you hear how the SEALs fucked ISIS on this?

    SigInt tells the SEAL team and some other US SOC team that ISIS is coming. There are about 35 US soldiers, couple vehicles.

    They leave the Syrian supporters in the base and take off into hills that overlook the base.
    The ISIS raid begins, they use a technical to blow the gate and stream in and shoot the Syrians left behind defending the base. They were bait, although I don’t think the US will categorize it that way. They were there to let ISIS believe they were ALL there.

    ISIS is now in the base.

    SEALs call in airstrikes on their OWN base. Instead of being encircled, they come roaring out of the hills and encircle their own base which now is full of ISIS fighters.

      Nice.

      I wish there were more stories like that. Don’t hear so many. But that was nice.

  • Following up on the Hitler/Gas discussion we had.

    Ran across this.

    British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, for one, had long argued in favor of the use of such weapons to shorten military conflicts. “I cannot understand this squeamishness about the use of gas,” he wrote in a memo in 1919, when he was Britain’s secretary of war. “It is not necessary to use only the most deadly gasses: gasses can be used which cause great inconvenience and would spread a lively terror and yet would leave no serious permanent effects on most of those affected.”

    • King of DBB

      There is a scene in Into The Storm, where Brendan Gleeson does a pretty good Churchill, where they show that.

      Churchill also used to stand on the roof during London bombings instead of stay in the bunker.

      He would drive to the coast and drink booze with the RAF before they sortied over the channel.

      He was a full on nutter. But also a genius.

      jesus, we’ll do a 2 for 1 exodus maings.

      if pace takes keezer over watson (if he has to go QB) I fucking swear.

      • King of DBB

        It sounds like Mahomes has jumped over Kizer Sose, so perhaps POX thinks they can get him in Rnd 2.

        I dunno. I have to reject Biggsy’s argument that having a prospect in the pipeline is greater than just building a team tough enough to complete a season. Fuck getting a QB in the draft. Go big or go home

      • Irish Sweetness

        He’s picking Watson. I feel it in my tubes. He’s the best QB in the draft and it’s not even close.

        • MB30SD

            Oh sweet Jesus, I’m crying here. I’m not a fan of his, but that was LOL funny.

        • Big Mike

          I don’t think he is. I don’t think I’d hate that move. GIven what we know about Pace, if he takes Watson, he has a plan to get a safety at 2. There are safeties available at 2 that would go in the 1/2 of the first round. Not saying that’s my preferred move, but I can see it. If Pace sees it, well ok then.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Budda’s small. But you can’t teach balls and ball-hawking. Give him a chance. He might get bust up. He will get bust up. It’s football. But he won’t suck, and it’ll be great to see him bloom if he does. Could be the birth of a Bear’s legend. He’s obviously got something to have made it so far … as a small guy.

            He’s up for this. Bigtime.

            Russell Watson .. .followed by Budda Baker.

            Compromise at safety pick in 2, and it’s win-win. FS (Baker) and SS(Demps).

            Plus your franchise quarterback.

            Compromise MB ?

          • Big Mike

            Quite the contrary, you can teach ball skills, you can at least improve them. You can’t teach height. We’ll have to see. Bears need top end talent. Guys who are going to be the best. I have no idea what’s best for them. I don’t want to take guys who have a hint of injury problems. I don’t want a TE in the first round. Our defense is 2-3 players away from being good. I say get them.

  • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

    Other than a few names, this metric is pretty spot on. Seems in agreement with the sense you get about the qbs from watching games.

    • When Kap is above Rivers and Palmers.

      Then again, Palmer had some bad yrs on the Raiders.

      Forgot about Gerrad.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Can’t believe Kap is a FA.

        • MB30SD

          And we took the giraffe instead?

          • Irish Sweetness

            Even Sanchez’ spot.

            Kap is better than Mark Sanchize.

            Can we all agree on that?

      • BerwynBomber

        Yeah, Gerrard had a couple of good years down in JAX with Del Rio. Didn’t the Jags reach the AFCC one year? Was odd how quickly he fell off, though …

    • BerwynBomber

      Interesting list. I trust QBR about 90 or 95% of the time. And just glancing at the top 16 confirms why. Ryan at #5? I don’t quite buy it, despite his career year in ’16. And Schaub at #15? Don’t quite buy that either. But the top four are the HoFers you would expect. And Romo, Wilson and R-berberger being in the top eight sounds about right as does Cutty at #22.

      FWIW, I try to average out QBR and traditional passer rating to consider actual ranking. Hence, if a dude finishes 14th in one and 18th in other, I consider him at 16. Both systems have their strengths and weaknesses. And there can occasionally be some sizable variations.

    Boy. Gruden LOVES Mahomes.”

    Gruden is also a massive knob.

    • Gruden loves everybody. That’s all you ever hear from him on MNF

      • BerwynBomber

        I beg to differ. He is over-exuberant in praise — his ESPN shtick — but he’ll criticize dudes. And he is definitely the smartest analyst technically. But the ESPN shtick holds him back.

        Aikman, IMV, is the best of the #1 guys.

        • MB30SD

          yeah, agree, he knows his shit… he’s just utterly annoying.

          I’m not a acheforman fan.

        • Irish Sweetness

          Gruden knows football. The fact that he’s generally positive isn’t a bad thing. Better than being a hater. I like him.

    • Spider Y banana on three

  • Irish Sweetness

    So it seems there is much love for OJ Howard and Jamal Adams here. Rightly so. Both would be great additions to our team.

    Why are we obsessed with next year’s draft class?

    Where are we picking this year?

    How often do we get that pick?

    What is the most important position in sports?

    Who is the best QB in the draft?

    Once more ….

    Rated 188, 156, 151.

    90 TDs- 32 INTs

    67% completions each season.

    The QB class is irrelevant. Watson’s the best there is in it, and we can, and should, draft him.

    Russell Watson.

      And the ones that NASA gives you, don’t do anything at all
      Go ask Elvis, when he’s ten feet tall

      And if you go chasing moonrocks, and you know you’re going to fall
      
Tell ’em a hookah-smoking trailer lady has given you the call
      And call Elvis, when he was just small

      When the men in the black cars get up and tell you where to go

      And you’ve just had some kind of pee break, and your mind is moving low
      Go ask Elvis, I think he’ll know

      When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead

      And the white cop is talking backwards
      
And the red scare has come to bed

    So I have some time on my hands.

    I just re-watched the second teaser trailer reaction vid for The Force Awakens. Clickbait. So I’m watching it.

    Disney are geniuses. They showed you everything in that trailer like a shot of Heroin in your arm. Except it’s a dopamine hit right in the center of your brain. They show you who Rey really is (and it is dialogue from Ep VIII, in Episode VII. Then with a wave of their wand .. you forget. They spiked everyone’s veins with that trailer in a finely-tuned programming way. They programmed their way to 10 Billion dollars with it.

    0.50 in. Watch people get programmed en masse.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Blob Book.

    So what’s our market for first pick? For shits and giggles.

    5/4 Adams. 6/4 Soloman 7/4 Allen. About right? I’ll have blog dollars on Watson at what price?

    What are the odds on Pace picking Russell? 10/1?

    What’s the thing where you would make a derivative of that online? Betfair index?

    If you doubled that with Budda in the second you could retire.
