    • SC Dave

      I found it somewhat amusing, though by about 45 seconds in it was clear who the interviewer was.

  • Isn’t Drew Brees like 5’10
    So Chase Daniels, is what, 5’8?

    Well, at least Cohen has someone he can almost see eye-to-eye with.

    Reminds me of the saying ‘if the last coach was skinny, the next one will be fat’ . Bears go from a giraffe to a pug.

    Pug life!

    • KentuckyBearsFan

      I thought the skinny and fat reference was generally about The Pope.

      (though that came from Jon Stewart….who’s obviously not Catholic.)

      • Hmm. Maybe. I always heard it in terms of football coaches, though I think the church has been around a lil longer.

        Though that would be weird for Popes cuz typically they’re in power for like 50 yrs or so, and aren’t exactly “hired”

      • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

        hmmm…. I never heard it reference skinny or fat with regards to the Pope. I heard ‘if the last Pope was a pedophile, the next one will be a pedophile.’

    • SC Dave

      Accoding to pro-football-reference, Brees is 6’0″

  • Dis Guy Trublinsky (Johnnywad)

    I just watched a few Taylor Gabriel highlights.

    Lads, that’s Devin Hester speed. In fact, I’d say he’s the receiver the Bears always hoped Hester would become. He’s going to give us a few plays to remember.

    • ButtonShoes

      Doesn’t he have foot issues?

      • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

        he had a couple sprains but nothing serious. I think he missed 1 game for it.

    • KentuckyBearsFan

      Yes. He looks fast with great hands.

        Looks like Canada answered that one below. But I could definitely see a Cohen/Gabriel return tandem back deep from time to time. A little Knox/Hester Deja Vu there. That’d scare the shit out of some coverage teams.

  • ButtonShoes

    Biggs says an NFL source told him the Bears are trying to shop Sims, thinking that since there’s a shortage of blocking TEs out there they might be able to get something for him. In what universe do they think that anyone will take on that contract and give them something for it? Especially in light of Sims’s production this past season? Just cut him. Save the money.

    • Shop Sims lol

      Hey, gotta try I guess. If we can get a 7th in 2039 for him, I’d take it.

      • CanadaBear

        I’m guessing he goes on the market tomorrow.

  • KentuckyBearsFan

    Thank you Irish for the recommendation for the movie “I, Tonya.” Interesting good and bizarre story.

  • McCarron essentially got the same deal as Chase. 2yr/$10M

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      Did you see that Chase put a buyout clause in his contract? So essentially if he gets playing time and performs good/great, he can buy his way out of the contract and be a FA. I am guessing Nick Foles wished he had put that in his contract.

      • Yeah, I posted that in the last thread. Smart.
        The crazy part? Apparently he did that before, so it wasn’t Fole’s inspired.

        I guess Foles is the new Kurt Warner, inspiring hope in all backups.

        • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

          Must have missed your post. I am really surprised that is not a standard thing in backup QB contracts, of course not rookie deals.

          • willbest

            Probably because they could just negotiate a shorter contract instead. 1-year deal instead of 2 year deal. Now if Pace insists on a 2-year deal, then you can say, okay but “no trade clause” or “option buyout” or something along those lines.

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            True but if you are a backup and have been for years, do you really want to go through FA every year?

          • willbest

            No, but they sort of do anyway. Because their contract is generally 1 year guaranteed, 2nd year is team option. And there is always a chance the team drafts a QB or decide a better backup is a better fit.

        • willbest

          Foles had a pro-bowl year before he did that so it wasn’t catching lightening in the bottle. Like Cutler he just wasn’t particularly consistent. What he did was live the Eli dream. Put shit together for 3 games.

    • SC Dave

      2yr/$8M at Arizona for Glennon.

      • KentuckyBearsFan

        What worried me early in the season was when Glennon threw a pass without looking.

        Granted the line broke down but he wasn’t throwing it away. And he made like this 360 degree turn during and after throwing the pass.

        I’ve never seen that from any quarterback ever.

    • BerwynBomber

      That’s a fantastic deal for BUF. Money-wise, might be the best FA signing in the league thus far.

      McCarron’s probably not much more than a back-up, but you roll the dice on him for cheap and still move up in the draft to nab one of this year’s QBs.

      I like this more than NYJ’s McCown/Bridgewater retread nonsense. Especially when you realize NYJ may pay McCown double what McCarron is getting.

      Heck, so far I even like their plan better than Pace’s Glennon-subsequent-Bisky moves last year, if only because we shelled out a ton more for Glennon.

      • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

        Agree, that’s why I did not see why other teams did not make offers to him. Cardinals signed Bradford, I would have rather taken a chance on him than Bradford.

        • willbest

          Arizona is drafting 15th, getting one of the top QBs would be expensive. Steve Wilks is also a defensive minded coach. He is probably looking for a game manager in a bridge season rather than dealing with possible train wreck that McCarron could be.

        • BerwynBomber

          Bradford I get to a degree. He’s fragile as glass but when healthy he looks like a competent NFL starter. You know, slightly superior to what McCown is.

          But yeah I would much rather pay McCarron a dime and move up in the draft for a rook.

          Glennon I don’t get at all. From what he showed us he is lucky to be in the league much less taking meaningful snaps on Sundays.

          • willbest

            Wilks is familiar with Glennon. And at this point I am convinced being able to run 2nd team practice is more important to coaches than managing a football game in the even the starter goes out.

  • Top 50 FAs still available.

    http://www.rotoworld.com/articles/nfl/78525/309/top-50-nfl-free-agents-left

    Playas I’d be interested in.

    Richardson (27). Self explanatory
    Poe (27) self explanatory
    Eric Reid (27) surprised to learn he played WLB
    Zach Brown (28) Wow. Can’t believe he’s on the market. Def upgrade over Christian Jones
    McPhee? But only as rotational guy for vet min?
    Okafor (27). Flashed big time, but Achilles concern.

    • Bear Instincts

      I agree with you but we can only have 2 or 3 of these guys. We don’t have the money for all them plus we have incoming draft picks to think about.

      Can’t have Richardson and Poe. It’s one or the other.

      I’m all for Eric Reid. He is familiar with Fangio.

      We can replace the others through the draft

      • SC Dave

        Depends on how much Brown is… I would think they are exploring that with his agent.

      • Oh, not ALL of them. No way we have that mula.

        I would probably go with Richardson, Brown and either Houston or McPhee for vet min.

        Okafor has the highest upside, but probably would cost most and has biggest risk.

        Not many OGs, unfortunately, unless we re-sign Sitton for cheaper.

    • Big Mike

      Not familiar with any of these last names. Why they still out there?

  • SC Dave

    FYI, from Da Site…

    We’ll be covering the arrivals of @Thee_AR15, @treyburton8, @TGdadon1, @CParkey36 & @ChaseDaniel at Halas Hall today. Ryan Pace’s press conference kicks off at 2pm CT, he’ll be followed shortly by the newest Bears.

  • BerwynBomber

    Not crazy about the Daniels deal if only because if called onto play he will probably be Glennon-level bad.

    Btw, did Sanchize retire? Don’t understand the thinking that Glennon or Daniels would be better if called upon on in a pinch.

    Ah well. Bisky’s body type suggest durability so Daniels might never see the field anyway.

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      95% of the time when your starter goes down it is not good for any team, unless they are playing the Bears that week. Then the backup is going to look like Namath.

      • BerwynBomber

        See McCown 2013 Chicago Bears. Or Nick Foles post-season run PHI last year. And I’m sure there are a good many other examples I am too lazy to look up.

        I get the Glennon/Daniels expectations if you’re a non-contender. Though at that point, I’d rather go the willb route and take a flyer on a mid-round rook as my back-up.

        But if you’re contending for a playoff it is good to have a guy who could potentially make a play or two and/or has shown they can win games in the past or gives you that impression moving forward.

        Doesn’t always work of course. Jason Campbell looked shot when he played for us although his prior history suggested he could play well in pinch.

        I guess Daniels is here mainly to be a coach in uniform.

    • willbest

      I would have brought Sanchez back. Actually, I would draft a QB with one of our 4ths looking for the next Cousins. I don’t really expect anything out of our backup QB. Not even that they just not embarrass us.

      • Big Mike

        Disagreement about the back up QB is a sign that it’s time to put football away until the draft.

        • willbest

          You think mighty highly of yourself.

          Sanchez already has a good working relationship with Trubisky. And has been to the AFCC twice. There are legitimate reasons to prefer him over Chase Daniel who has thrown the ball 78 times in the NFL. I get that Nagy and Daniel worked together for 3 years. Which is why I commented earlier that coaches don’t actually give a crap if the backup can play the game. They just want somebody to run practices with.

          • Big Mike

            I do think highly of myself. I’m an alright guy 🙂

            I like Sanchez. Here’s my post from 20 minutes ago. “He’s an exceptional leader, locker room professional. Team’s need guys
            like Sanchez. He’s not in any position to run the new type of offense.
            Chase Daniels is the right back up.” Just making a light hearted comment about the lunacy of the NFL off season.

      • DaCoaches Mustache

        Why? To teach the intricacies of how to run into the ass of a fat guy and drop the football? Why do people like this fucking guy. I don’t get it. Fuck him.

        • Big Mike

          He’s an exceptional leader, locker room professional. Team’s need guys like Sanchez.He’s not in any position to run the new type of offense. Chase Daniels is the right back up.

        • BerwynBomber

          Because he had more success as a starting QB than a Glennon or Daniels can only dream about? And he is more skilled?

          • DaCoaches Mustache

            He had a decent 2009-2011. Since then he has sucked balls or hasn’t played. Unless he’s teaching Trubisky the finer points of securing top notch ass & vag, he does not have a place on this team. Fuck him.

          • Dis Guy Trublinsky (Johnnywad)

            You can’t keep all these emotions bottled up. You gotta let it out. They’ll eat you alive if not. Just tell us already.

          • BerwynBomber

            Even as a limited game manager, started entire years for teams that made the post-season. Posted a 4-2 playoff record. Won four road playoff games. Even outplayed Brady in one at Foxboro.

            Again, that is stuff that Glennon and Daniels can only dream about.

            I’m sure Sanchize is about shot (and he was never much more than average-to-below average starter), but if Bisky goes down and we are in playoff contention I would trust him a ton more than the other two.

      • Big Mike

        Would not spend a pick on QB this year. But again, I probably would say the same thing next year after the Bears shock the world and qualify for a playoff spot. Or the year after.. when they win the division. I hate taking players who won’t contribute. I know you have to. I’ll be ok with it when they do. Because you have to take a gamble.

        • willbest

          In a world where Bradford is getting 20 million and cousins is getting 84 million fully guaranteed, you are foolish if you aren’t buying that lottery ticket every year.

          • CanadaBear

            Unless you have no idea what you’re doing and you end up with Enderle, LeFavour and Fales.

          • Big Mike

            and that too

          • BerwynBomber

            But in mid-/late rounds you get some of that with positional players anyway.

          • CanadaBear

            Oh, I know. I’m just having some fun with the Bears murderer’s row of backup QB’s.

          • willbest

            I just spent 5 minutes looking through our draft picks. After the 2nd round, in the last 10 years you have Howard, Melton, and Knox who have made the pro-bowl. Oh hell, lets include the top 2 rounds too. Add Long and Jeffery.

          • BerwynBomber

            Knox made a PB? Wow. Would have never guessed.

            That could be a Bears trivia stumper.

          • willbest

            As a rookie, for kick off returns where he averaged 29 yards per return including a 102 yard TD. Percy Harvin bowed out and he was the alternate.

          • I got a LaFevour for more cowbells!

          • Big Mike

            I don’t disagree with you. I just hate buying a lottery ticket when I could be getting something I know I can use.

        • Bear Instincts

          Sometime’s you have to bite the bullet. Many of us including myself wanted Jamal Adams last year but i’m glad Pace took MT10. Think about what we would be doing in FA if we did not have MT10?

          • Big Mike

            I don’t disagree, but last year was very different. We had just won 3 games, FAs that would come here were bottom of the barrel. We had no direction on offense. No juice on the coaching staff, at QB, etc. Pace going all in was a big ball, franchise changing move. Now he’s backing up the bet. But if Nagy, Pace and the scouts find a QB available that is on their board in rd 3 or 4 and they go get’em. There you have it. This is probably the year to do it. expectations are modest 8 wins?

          • CanadaBear

            I can only imagine how 2017 would have played out if MT wasn’t drafted. 16 games of Glennon running Nathan Lane’s offense might have put me over the edge!

          • Big Mike

            we’d have the first draft pick and Darnold, Rosen or Mayfield would be our QB.

          • Dis Guy Trublinsky (Johnnywad)

            And Pace would be gone along with Fox. Nagy would have had no interest and neither would any of the guys that signed yesterday. That draft selection, for the moment at least, pulled the Bears out of a raging dumpster fire.

          • Big Mike

            I agree.

          • CanadaBear

            Not to put too fine of a point on it but the Bears would have picked second. Glennon actually had a win last year (Pitt).

          • Big Mike

            Ugh..

          • Fox, Glennon and Wheaton. Add some Daniel Brown into the mix. Moses Christ.

          • KentuckyBearsFan

            I think Pace is focusing on offense with free agency and then the draft will be all defense outside of the 1st round.

            We need an offensive lineman if not in the 1st round than maybe 2nd. Draft the corner or edge rusher in the first and if the new O-line coach can do wonders with anybody draft that lineman in the 2nd .

          • Big Mike

            Pace is doing what he does every year, with a slight twist. His goal every year is to fill up the biggest holes in his roster to reduce pressure for a needs based pick. We had more needs on Offense this year, so most of the FA attention went to the Offense. But if Saquon Barkley by some miracle is there at 8, he’d take him. Or if a top WR/TE/RB/QB is available in the 2nd, I would not be surprised if he took him.

            I love drafting OL, but if the Bears don’t nab Nelson in round 1, I don’t think the Bears make an OL pick until RD 3 or later.

          • Maybe I’m going against the grain, but my way of thinking is if HH is half the Oline coach everyone lauds him to be, I task him to find me the best values outside the 1st.

            Most interior Olinemen aren’t drafted in the 1st.

            Look at Norwell. I think he went undrafted.

            So if HH is truly an Oline maven, I make him find me the next Norwell, and swing for the fences on D in the 1st.

          • leftcoastdave

            I go back and forth on that. We’ve got Jordan Morgan who I expect to step in with Kush backing up both Gs as well as Brady Sowell who even was snapping one game if memory serves. Get the best D on the board.
            Then again, plug and play Quentin Nelson stacks that middle three and puts into play the ability to trade O linemen if given the opportunity or cut Massie or Long next year based upon how they play this year. We’ve already got several projects for HH to be working with to potentially replace either or both. Nelson provides a lot of bang for the buck compared to Massie or an injured Long.

          • Big Mike

            So this will be a long response. But I have a lot to say here. First, I trust Pace/Nagy etc to get the player that improves the Bears the most. Pace has been pretty true to the BPA philosophy. Nelson/Barkley and Chubb are the three BPAs in this year’s draft. I think the only exception to BPA is QB. What Pace did over the last few days has energized my fandom :). I had this fear that the Bears had all this money to spend and they wouldn’t land anybody. But Pace has proven over and over again, he gets his guy most of the time. (now sometimes those guys don’t work out, but you suspect he’s got a fantastic pitch about the Bears and where they are going). You can argue you overpay in FA, but Pace didn’t get screwed. The guys he signed are young. No overpayments for guys who are fighting time. In FA pace got players that will excel in Nagy’s scheme. Imagine that.. When was the last time the Bears could say that on offense. For the longest time it’s been a patchwork of pieces with no identity.

            Now about the #8 pick. You are right most OGs/Centers are not drafted in the first round, certainly not in the top 10. Kyle Long was a first round pick but he was around 19 or so. But if you look at BPA & Nelson is available at 8, he will be the BPA. Quentin Nelson is a generational player. He will be a day 1 “Plus” starter. He also looks more capable of playing Tackle than Long did and Long wasn’t pretty good at RT. But he’s still the BPA as an OG. There are definitely other Guards to be had later in the draft that HH can turn into starters and possibly pro-bowlers. If they go OG in round 2, I would expect that player to start as well. But if you project Nelson, Whitehair and Long as your interior starting OL, you give Trubisky something that EVERY QB wants. A clean middle and the ability to step up in the pocket. Teams will have to account for this strength.

            The discussion is probably moot, because Denver or Tampa are very likely to take Nelson before we get a chance. I’ve also seen Minkah Fitzpatrick projected to the Tampa. Fitzpatrick is the one guy who I might deviate from the BPA script for. CB’s are hard to find, the Bears are in a position to roll with Fuller and Akamurah and put Fitzpatrick in as the slot corner (he also played safety alongside Eddie Jackson at Alabama.

            So here is where I think the Bears are. 3 QBs off the board, Chubb off the board Barkley off the board. That’s 5 guys Denver had been projected to take a QB. But they just signed Keenum. I think they take Nelson. That’s 6 guys. If Denver doesn’t, Tampa does. The Jets and Tampa are key to the Bears draft options. I’m counting on the Jets taking a QB. If they don’t TB’s phone will ring off the hook for someone looking to get the 3rd QB of the draft. If TB doesn’t take a trade in that scenario and takes Minkah Fitzpatrick, jokers are wild for the Bears. Trade back or take 1 Denzel Ward or Tremaine Edwards.

            BTW Nelson is just someone I want on the Bears because I love O-Line and he’s the best G coming out of college I’ve seen in a long time. With the receivers we’ve added our running back tandem of thunder and lightning, nailing the OL just completes the puzzle. A strong interior line even makes your Ts better. If Pace goes a different direction, that’s fine too. Here’s the thing, I doubt Nelson is there at 8.

            Last note, HH might have designs on turning Nelson into an OT. He knows what he’s working with. I also think the Bears will take some big guys 5,6,7 and UDFAs for HH to mold. Raw 1AA and D2 guys.

        YES!!! His completion % is almost as high as the number passes he attempted.

        • Big Mike

          He’s a backup. He’s familiar with the offense. He will look better when he gets thrown into the mix than Glennon or Trubisky did last year. It will look like an NFL offense. How bad we were on offense was beyond belief.

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            Calm down Mike. I really don’t give a shit who our backup is. Chances are if they are playing then something bad happened, and I don’t want to think about that.

          • Big Mike

            All good. Just having fun. Great few days for the Bears and their fans.

        • evantonio

          That’s the sign of a star

    • Don’t like it either. Maybe Pace figures Brees mentored him, so now Daniels can pass that knowledge down to a new padawaan.

      I might have gone Tylor Bray who is an ex-chief. Only 27. Obviously knows the system.

      Guess Bears like mentor types.

      I haven’t gone in full-draft mode, but maybe I’ll check what QBs would be decent values in the 4rth and beyond.

  • Big Mike

    Bears can line up a big/fast/electric Single Tight End formation with Burton, Robinson, Meredith, Gabriel and Tarik. That’s a shit ton of pressure on the defense. Speed, size 50/50 balls underneath, flat, screens sweeps.. two electric guys that are hard to get hold of, 2 threats at any level of the field and a sure handed TE. Swap out Tarik for Howard and now you’re in danger of serious mismatches. Go double tight you can Quadruple big with Shaheen/Robinson/Meredith/Burton or single tight and put Gabriel in the slot and sit Burton. Oh my.. the matchup possibilities. 2-2 personnel puts Cohen, Howard, Burton, Shaheen and one of Robinson, Gabriel, or Meredith on the field. You think Howard is looking at 8 in the box? More like 6.

    • CanadaBear

      My only worry is Cohen in a single back set if he has to pass protect. Not that he isn’t willing but I’m not sure how effective he will be.

        Why will he need to pass protect? He can just run a wheel or out to the flats. Our line won’t let anyone through.

      • On the few times I saw him block, he actually held up decently to my surprise.

        As you know, Canada, sometimes those shorties have leverage.

        However, if some 260pounder has a free run at Trub and Cohen is his last hope…it’s not going to end well.

    • Bear Instincts

      I don’t see K.White in the line up, did he break his ankles again?

      • Big Mike

        How does he get on the field? I am one of the few that is very hopeful he can get healthy and live up to his potential. I think this could be his year. But he is going to have to have a lights out camp, and shine in the pre-season. Something he did not do last year. I remember reports of him looking “ordinary” without explosion etc. 2 years from a leg injury is he fully healed? He’s going to have to stand out in the context of much, much much better competition. It would be a great story if he can come back. But then the Bears have too many WRs. Well, someone will get hurt, you can go triple big with Meredith, White and Robinson (gabriel sits). Wow. what a problem.

        • SC Dave

          It would be hard to “come back” when you were never there, but I merely quibble.

          • Big Mike

            Good point. But wow, what a bonus that would be

          • leftcoastdave

            White had a target on his back when he was out there. Everybody knew that Fox wanted to “get White into the offense” and became the focus of the D. Best thing that could happen to him would be to run a bunch of routes without ever being targeted.

          • Big Mike

            I hope you are right

        • White looked pedestrian even while in. Sad but true.
          Contrast that to the first touch Cohen or Hester got – they both made defenders look like they were in tar.

          • Big Mike

            Yeah maybe his leg wasn’t 100%. But I know what you mean.

    • SC Dave

      Howard with six in the box… a boy can dream, right?

      • Big Mike

        You’re the D-Coordinator. Bears go out in 11 or 12 personnel (1 back 1 TE or 1 back 2 TE) WRs are Robinson/Meredith/Gabriel/ and White with Shaheen at TE, or in the 2 TE set, swap White for Burton. If you keep 7 in the box, defense has to be in a nickel or even a dime. How do you cover Shaheen, Burton, White? Then you run Howard.. oh man..

        • SC Dave

          One thing that rarely gets mentioned about WRs is whether they can block. If they can, it gets even better.

          • Big Mike

            We know Meredith was a good blocker. That is something to research..

        • leftcoastdave

          Yup. And make that run an RPO with Trub looking at a hot read for the LBs and DBs to be leaning toward.

          • Big Mike

            Or a play action. Very tough to defend

  • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

    The Bears have been able to fix some glaring holes already in FA, however there is one position that I wish they would address. Long Snapper. Scales got hurt last year and we signed some nobody to fill in. This is such a crucial position, we need to get it nailed down.

    • SC Dave

      We were spoiled with Patrick Mannelly.

      • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

        I can’t believe they let him retire. He should still be with us. Him retiring is probably the reason of the downfall of all our kickers. Just look at it, Gould started sucking after he retired and every new kicker/punter has sucked since.

        • Russian Hacked Pacebot 2.0

          his back and knees didn’t work anymore. The snapper/holder/kicker combo of Mannelly/Maynard/Gould was unstoppable for a run.

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            I am pretty sure we could also link the decline of Forte to the loss of Mannelly.

          • SC Dave

            Don’t forget, he called audibles too!

            Edit: And assisted on 3 tackles!

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

    Dolphins have released center Mike Pouncey after he wasn’t willing to take a pay cut. He is a 28 yr old three-time Pro Bowler. The only concern is he might need hip surgery at some point in the future

    • AlbertInTucson

      He already has a hip surgery on his resume’.

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      and he may be bat shit crazy. ie undying support of Hernandez killing people.

    • Joecashflow

      Sign him, drop Grasu, subject to physical.

      • Dis Guy Trublinsky (Johnnywad)

        I’d far rather take Nelson in the draft and let Whitehair be the Center for the next ten years.

    • Think he’s been INJ prone.
      Guess I would want to know how much.

      If it’s Norwell cash, pass.

    • That Guy

      Pouncey brothers are pieces of shit. They are thugs who were all-in on “Hernandez is innocent and being framed.”

      You don’t want the disease of stupidity like that in the lockerroom.

  • Russian Hacked Pacebot 2.0

    I’m excited to see how the Bears use Taylor Gabriel this year. The lowest hanging fruit is the dump off screen and the deep routes but you can throw that guy out there for fake jet sweeps, fake screens and then hit guys like Robinson, Burton, Meredith on deeper routes, deep digs, etc for huge chunks and also fake screens followed by misdirection runs and dumpoffs to Cohen and Howard (most likely Cohen).

    • I’m looking forward to see if Nagy is smart enough to do all that stuff.
      The best thing about speed is that it backs up the safeties, and can turn an innocuous 3 yd slant into a 90yd TD.

      I think Gabriel and Cohen (if properly used) will get Trub a lot of cheap chunk yds, which the WCO depends on.

  • ButtonShoes

    Weren’t some of you guys here on about the Bears needing to sign Colquitt? He re-signed with the Chiefs. 3 years.

    • Ah, fuck!
      Yeah, I wanted me some Colquitt. In all seriousness, he might’ve been the best P I’ve seen in FA…evah?

      It’s amazing he overcame that first name.

      I know it’s a popular millennial name now but still.

      And if that was the case, I’d name the kid Sachs instead as my preference.

      If I stumble upon having a kid I’ll just name him Goal (which is still horrible).

      I’ve thought it was strange naming a kid Graham in the past. Why not Kilo?

  • Bear Instincts

      “O’Donnell, a sixth-round pick of the Bears in 2014, had a career-high 87 punts in 2017.”

      A career high for a punter usually means the team sucks.

      But it will get better this year.

      I’m looking forward for this football season in a sports way I haven’t felt that way since the Jordan Bulls and the Kentucky Wildcats in basketball with Mashburn and a few teams after that after Pitino left with Calipari.

    • They can have him and his Mclaren

  • KentuckyBearsFan

    If the line is capable, I think Trubisky can go no huddle. That’s a big if.

    The opposing defense doesn’t get a rest. I don’t know if the team has the talent for it, but Trubisky’s mobility might allow it.

    I’m thinking back to the Jim Kelly/Thurman Thomas days. (Which would be the opposite of last year.)

    Howard is a bruiser but his hands are not awful. At least they weren’t later in the year. But there was always some weird penalty or mishap that didn’t show it.

    • SC Dave

      Mobility is not the most important part of no-huddle. It’s more about brains, and not just those of the QB.

      • KentuckyBearsFan

        ok then the number of false start penalties last year might rule that out

  • SC Dave

    The Bears offense, given MT throwing straight, could be a force next season.

    Given a healthy Long, and more importantly Quenton Nelson and infestation of his attitude about demoralization and destruction across the whole offense, and it would make opponents shit their pants.

    If somehow MT then learned to throw like Warner, it would be…

    The Kool-Aid time of all. Unstoppable offense, top 12 defense, and 19-0.

    But I think it takes one more year.

    You know, the 100th year of the franchise.

    Wish we wrapped him up last yr when I wasn’t sure about Tre’s health going forward. Never really got why he had to play on back-to-back 1yr deals since he looked good to me.

    3yrs 24M. A lil pricey, but not overly.

    Bears really thin at LB now esp since Christian Jones played both ILB and OLB.

    Not many young ILBs still available.

          You mean he is asking for too much money. Mo first visited Cheeseville, then KC, then the Skins before going back to Cheeseville on a $5m contract. He was clearly looking for more.
          Suh had a big contract and likely is still overvaluing himself.
          We shall see who lands him for how much.

    • SC Dave

      Bostic… um.. no.

  • Bear Instincts
    • Agree with Data.
      Solid rotational guy. 6 sacks in two seasons.

      • Dis Guy Trublinsky (Johnnywad)

        Well at least we know he’s trying.

        • leftcoastdave

          Dude graduated from Notre Dame. Has been in a system/coaching rotation which I believe impacted upon his performance.
          I think he is a great sign and will kick serious butt being back with Fangio.

        • In some strange way, it’s kinda reassuring.

          Taking PEDs – yeah, well, I guess he cares enough to try lol

          But also on Pace’s side. Glad he’s not totally gun shy after the Freeman debacle.

          Then again, it’s not as if he’s handing him a $50M contract.

          • Dis Guy Trublinsky (Johnnywad)

            Right. If the guy shits the bed, Bears are out a ham sandwich. And he’s not exactly Ray McDonald. Pace is just dipping a toe in the water here.

    • CRAZYBEARNORTH48

      Was just typing that lol

    • leftcoastdave

      Listed as DE but clearly built to be a a 3-4 OLB which is no doubt why he did not fit in SF with their changing scheme.
      Good start to plugging that hole.

    • I didn’t confirm it. It was confirmed by others and I commented my take on the signing.

      I’m not an insider and never claim to be.

  • Aaron Lynch scouting report:

    http://www.nfl.com/draft/2014/profiles/aaron%20-lynch?id=2543650

    Was quite surprised at his measurable. 6’5, 250, 34″ arms, 10″ paws.

    As Waffle would say, that’s some mocha man meat.

    But then I read the knocks:

    Classic underachiever. Questionable effort, motor and desire. Leaves production on the field. Does not play with passion and lacks urgency. Goes through the motions. Is not a strong or creative rusher and does not create plays. Lacks concentration and focus. Will require maintenance. Weight has fluctuated a lot. Managed just 18 bench-press reps at the combine. Did not show well at his pro day — managed a 29-inch vertical and recorded poor times in the three-cone drill (7.46 seconds) and short shuttle (4.61 seconds)

    Given his 2.5 sacks past two seasons, suspension, then thrown in the doghouse, maybe he needs a new start.

    Hopefully Lynch puts it together over here. Maybe Fangio can squeeze the potential out of him, cuz Lynch seems dripping with potential and is still relatively young.

    • leftcoastdave

      Ok, my interpretation.

      “Left the team (Notre Dame) during spring practice in 2012, expressing an interest to
      play closer to home, and transferred to South Florida.”

      Clearly could not cut the academic mustard.

      ” Weight has fluctuated heavily, which he reportedly said stems from his
      use of Adderall.”

      So has some form of attention deficit disorder and gets prescribed speed to help him focus (and run a 1.52).

      Which gives me flashbacks of Tug McGraw’s facial tweeking during the world series, speeding his brains out on the mound.

      • KentuckyBearsFan

        The Adderall thing….it’s a stimulant. With 4 drugs combined compared to Ritalin.

        Modern society seems to require it for over-focusing at it is a crutch as lot of young people use.

        In the modern world as an older adult I alternate between ADD and OCD. Just because I’m interested in things I don’t understand completely. Business. Finance. Econ. Politics. Science. I wanted to be a scientist originally at one of the best schools and they didn’t teach me shit. At least as far as molecular biology goes. The health sciences are weird and corrupt.

        But after a few months and attenuation the dosage had to go up and within 6 months I was close to batshit insane.

        I was on in it very late college. It can help some folks but I was using it for depression because it has an immediate impact. (Bad breakup). The other depression medication did not work for me at all. And I had tried at least 3 of them. Adderall did prevent violent and self-harming tendencies.

        So bad times in college and a bad breakup….most of the “depression” medication made me not enjoy sex. So the one thing that was still working for me was taken away. I don’t think that was an accident but I’m the paranoid type.

        But combining Adderall with cigs was bloody dangerous. Because that high was a freaking drug high. Like a scary high that should be avoided.

        • leftcoastdave

          Thank you for sharing. (AA/NA response.) I’ve never been there, but have represented and/or dealt with thousands of tweakers (meth users) and can say that speed kills and makes people bat shit crazy.

          Under the radar is the benzo problem which is given to too many people with anxiety/depression and suppresses natural inhibitions. I’d like to know how many of the crazies going violent are on benzos. (Ie, zanax and clonipin type drugs)

          • KentuckyBearsFan

            I might have been on zanax. I can’t remember, though whatever pharma drug that was a complete zone out.

            Never been on clonipin….but the one story I heard she was taking it recreationally and depressing and nuts.

            Adderall is a serious drug. Anyone who doesn’t know better will be in trouble.

            I know a friend who weened himself off it. But it only happened after divorcing his half-crazy neurotic wife first.

    “Two seasons of crap in the kicking game was enough for Pace, so he made a move on former Dolphin Cody Parkey and his 91.3 field goal percentage.

    By the by, FUCK Suh. That cancer should go elsewhere

    • KentuckyBearsFan

      His reputation is laying down and dying after signing a new contract (I think).

      Julius Peppers was all world but this wasn’t the right team for him at the time.

      Suh has had an awful attitude rep for a while now.

      • Peppers is a good comp.

        It was obvious he didn’t want to be here anymore (and in retrospect, who can blame him)

        He went to the Puke motivated and still made an impact.

        Suh could be our version of that.

        But I think Pace sticks to his young MO.

        • SC Dave

          And then went back to Charlotte and picked up another 11 sacks and 2 FF as a part-timer.

          https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/P/PeppJu99.htm

          • Yeah, Pepp and Suh were truly generational talent. (Not this “generational HB” who comes out every year). That’s why I suspect Suh can squeeze a few more yrs.

            They reset the template for a DE and DT

            Rook campaigns
            Peppers : 12 sacks, 5FFs, 1 Int
            Suh ——–10 sacks, 1FF, 1 int

            Those are phenomenal numbers for rooks, esp since they were double and even triple teamed.

          • leftcoastdave

            I’d like to give him an incentive laden, prove it deal. Clearly he is looking for more money than is being offered. Putting him into the rotation could be awesome. If he does not show up, his contract should pay him accordingly if one is to be given.

          • Agreed.

            Some may think Suh’s old. But Suh last yr still notched 48 tkls, 4.5 sacks, 2FFs, 2 passes defended, and PFF rated him as the #5 interior lineman out of 122 qualifiers.

            And that’s supposedly with him ‘loafing’ it.

            Well, him loafing it would still be better than everyone else not named Hicks.

          • KentuckyBearsFan

            if he costs 8-10 million maybe…..but that’s still too much.

            15 is a crazy person signing (though god knows we need an edge rusher).

            Ahhhhh.

    • IF Suh is motivated, he can still be beastly.

      Imagine Suh-Goldman-Hicks on that Dline.

      That is a big ass nasty Dline.

  • KentuckyBearsFan

    this is overly long but there’s this long lecture with Jordan Peterson on identity politics.

    He’s a college psychologist. With a very soothing professional voice.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwdYpMS8s28

    But fast forward the introduction with other speakers.

    I’ve listened to a few hours of podcasts with him before where he sounded reasonable enough.

    It’s weird that people are protesting this speech outside. Because his point of view does not sound radical to me.

    I could be wrong.

    • Prolly check it out when I get some time.

      • KentuckyBearsFan

        This is not going to be an opinion who anyone will hear elsewhere, but I think identity politics started in America on the behalf of colonizers never leaving Africa. The distraction was Vietnam and there was almost nothing there without a huge amount of industrial effort.

        It’s a guess.

        Gold, Diamonds, and eventually oil. Oh, and rare minerals.

        I’m not black. But I’m not white either.

        Another distraction on how this world works.

        • KentuckyBearsFan

          The point of life being a response to ethical problems in life…..that sentiment speaks to me at middle age. It’s not one I’ve exactly passed all of the time, but yes most of the time.

          What bothered me last year like in the movie As Good As It Gets, I should have been a better man all along.

          But weird business got in the way. Wasting my entire 20s. Maybe only trained military folks come out of something like that. It took me 10 cross country trips. And I hate driving now.

          • Ethics is never easy. It’s not black and white esp as one ages. So you’re def not alone there.

            I’ll give you a personal example.

            I had a hard rule. Don’t get with another man’s woman.

            Wasn’t easy. Many temptations. I’ve relayed a story or two about that here.

            Well, about 3-4 yrs ago, I did get with a man’s woman.

            BUT that dude was a douche. He abused her. He was a druggie. He literally sold her dog for drugs.

            So, I was like – FUCK HIM.

            I may not be a saint, but I’m not gonna fucking sell her dog for smack.

            She died last yr. Do I feel bad for taking her away from him? Hell no.

            In fact, if I had stayed with my fast rule – I would have regretted it for the rest of my life and probably had somewhat blamed myself for not trying to help her as much as I could.

            So, yeah, ethics can be mercurial, at best. We just have to do what we FEEL is best at the moment – often with incomplete info and imperfect hearts, but we gotta try at least to do what’s best with no playbook.

          • KentuckyBearsFan

            You sound like a good man. There are hard and fast rules, but this life has exceptions.

          • I guess I’m more Aristotelian when it comes to ethics. He once said a philosopher or theologian can think of an example that will be bad in one situation, but good in another.

            But it is up to a wise person to determine when it’s the right time, and how to do it in the right way, which he concluded was somewhat innate.

            Like that example I gave previously. Of course it can lead to mistakes – but that’s life.

            One of the things I always keep in mind is regret.

            They did a survey of like 100 terminal patients. They were literally weeks or days away from their death. They were asked what was their biggest regrets, and mostly they responded it wasn’t the things they did which as their biggest regret, rather the things they DID NOT do.

            Not making the move on Suise in Jr High. Not traveling to Europe. Not finishing college. Not investing in so and so, etc

            So I always keep that in mind when I’m out and about.

            Carpe diem.

            American love is hard.

            There’s all the bull.

            But I know that a lot of the bull was worth it (just not in my family)

            You can understand why I loved I Tonya.

    • EnderWiggin

      His work fighting bill C16 will go down in history.

  • 1st impressions after watching some interviews.

    Allen Robinson. All biz. I don’t think he cracked a smile once. Suit looked shabby too. Randy Moss his idol

    Burton. Def of underdog. South beach style. Affable.

    Chase Daniels. Articulate. Liked the line ‘I will bring a HOF program I learned from Brees’ – like what? ‘like film study and arm management’ . Detailed. Funny. He’ll have a TV gig sooner or later.

    Also, apparently, he’s the oldest Bear now – at the ripe old age of 31.

    Parkey. Looks like he’s 12 yrs old. Pops grew up in Naperville. Said if Gould could K in Chi, he can.

    From their answers, it was obvious that Nagy was a big sell. Robinson remarked how he thought the Chief’s O was dynamic, and his bud Ware (HB) told him it was fun.

    Burton relayed that Nagy was all energy. Reminded him of Pederson. Wants to be dominant in creative O.

    Daniels was familar with both Nagy and Pace, so two-fer.

    Think there’s a genuine buzz now at Halas.

    Hope it translates.

    • KentuckyBearsFan

      Looks like a good group. Did you forget Taylor Gabriel? (maybe only expected to sign yet)

      • Oh shoot. I did. He also looked 12. Orange and blue suit, so already coordinated!
        But he also talked about Nagy, the chiefs and being like a Tyreek Hill, moving all around.

        Best line “My role is athlete. So I can do everything”

        • KentuckyBearsFan

          He looks like he can do everything.

          He’s going to be awesome with Tarik.

          And then Howard running.

          And Adam catching.

      I love what I see from Daniels. He’s probably our #1 guy in that offense right now as things stand, never mind backup. Reads the offense quickly, he can get it in there quickly, or dink it over a linebacker. Looks very much like a competent WCO QB – he has that demeanor about him as opposed to the old Air Coryell guys just dropping back and lobbing rainbows. He’s a proper little field general and he’s learned from the best.

      If Pace finds us a starter OL in the draft, he’s knocked it out of the park offensively. It would be amazing to land Nelson and then get a linebacker in the 2nd. With Kevin, Cam and Allen, we have three guys at 6’3. The WCO receivers don’t really need that 6’5 guy in there, but it would have been nice.

      Keep MT’s pocket clean Pace!

  • KentuckyBearsFan

    this is going to sound awful

    but Doug Stanhope’s comedy show was the only one I thought was worth posting.

    I won’t do this again. If I exceeded my boundary today and probably a lifetime.

    the creation of modern wealth is a bad business idea but taking out a higher wealth prospect.

    This concept is worth hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars if you do it right.

    Not me. Cause I need to make the world to make sense.

    But I’m looking at the weird of town. And Holy Fuck.

    Campaign for the Fourth Round RB:

    Rashaad Penny, RB, San Diego State
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 224.
    Arm: 31.5. Hand: 9.13.
    40 Time: 4.46.
    Projected Round (2018): 2-3.
    3/10/18: Penny ran well as a senior, using his size to roll over a lot of weak opponents. He averaged 7.8 yards per carry for 2,248 yards with 23 touchdowns, plus made 19 receptions for 135 yards and two scores. As a junior, Penny averaged 7.4 yards per carry for 1,005 yards with 11 touchdowns. He caught 15 passes for 224 yards and three scores that season as well.

    Penny is a thickly built downhill runner. He has a surprising burst to hit the hole and accelerate to the second level. Penny is fast for a big back and can run away from the defense after getting to the open field. His second gear is very impressive and makes him dangerous to rip off long runs on any carry. Penny combines quick, feet, good balance, and decisive running to be a dangerous runner for a zone-blocking system. That kind of system would be his best fit in the NFL.

    As a receiver, Penny is a great fit for the current offensive systems in the NFL. He runs good routes, has soft hands, and is able to find soft spots in the defense for his quarterback. Penny’s issues with learning could be seen at the Senior Bowl, where he had an unimpressive week of practice. He was playing slowly, seemingly thinking too much on the field. As a result, Penny might need some developmental time with the playbook before he is able to make an impact for his NFL team.

    “Penny is super talented,” said a NFC director of college scouting. “He is a smooth runner, athletic, has some [speed], is good in the pass game and a returner. His makeup and work ethic isn’t great. He has learning issues, so he might need to start with a 7-8 touches per game role until he learns to enough to gradually expand it.”

    Jaylen Samuels, RB, N.C. State
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 223.
    Arm: 31.38. Hand: 8.88.
    40 Time: 4.54.
    Projected Round (2018): 2-4.
    3/10/18: At the Senior Bowl, Samuels had an impressive week of practices and showed off his excellent receiving skills. Samuels totaled 76 receptions for 597 yards and four touchdowns in 2017. On the ground, he averaged 5.2 yards per carry for 403 yards and 12 touchdowns.

    Samuels is a unique prospect for the next level. The senior was listed as a tight end, played some H-back, took carries out of the backfield, and also was split out wide. In speaking with scouts, they like Samuels, and some think that his best fit in the NFL would come as a third-down running back. They think he has really good hands, is a nice receiver, and could also run the rock in those situations. They think that Samuels could be tried as a fullback as well, but being a running back is his best fit. Samuels is a superb route-runner with subtle quickness and athleticism that makes him a mismatch weapon. Samuels could be a steal as a passing weapon on Day 2.

    7/17/17: Samuels has been a productive player for the Wolfpack, but he needs to improve his lead blocking for the NFL. As a junior, Samuels snagged 55 receptions for 565 yards and seven touchdowns. He also had 33 carries for 189 yards and six scores. In 2015, Samuels caught 65 passes for 597 yards and seven touchdowns. He also made 56 carries, averaging 6.6 yards per attempt, with 368 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground.

    Nyheim Hines*, RB, N.C. State
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 197.
    Arm: 30.75. Hand: 8.88.
    40 Time: 4.38.
    Projected Round (2018): 3-5.
    3/10/18: Hines is a speedster back who produced a lot of big plays for N.C. State in 2017. He a broke out on the season, averaging 5.6 yards per carry for 1,112 yards with 12 touchdowns. He had 26 receptions for 152 yards as well. Hines didn’t contribute much as a runner before 2017, but he did have 43 receptions for 525 yards as a sophomore. On special teams, Hines averaged 25 yards per kick return over three years with two touchdowns. He averaged 11.3 yards per punt return with a touchdown in 2017.

    Hines would fit best in the NFL as a change-of-pace receiving back who also contributes as a returner. He could be a nice speed weapon for an offense. At the NFL Scouting Combine, Hines showed how devastatingly fast he is with his superb 40-yard dash time.

    Martez Carter, RB, Grambling State
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 205.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.51.
    Projected Round (2018): 5-7.
    3/10/18: In late September, team sources told me that Carter was a player who had really impressed scouts this fall. One area scout said that Carter is a bigger Tarik Cohen and is arguably as good as Cohen was last year in college. They also say that Carter impressed them in 2016, when he averaged 7.7 yards per carry for 906 yards with 11 touchdowns. Carter added 28 receptions for 351 yards and three scores last season, too. The senior averaged 5.1 yards per carry in 2017 for 854 yards and 10 touchdowns, plus took 33 receptions for 449 yards and two touchdowns.

  • Hillary Daniel

    Hi everyone!!! I just want to reach out and tell all the Bears Fans how excited Chase and I are to be moving to Chicago. Chase is thrilled to have joined such a great organization. He has not stopped smiling since he signed the contract. Also, I wanted to take the time to ask you guys to take it easy on Chase this year. I know the backup QB has caused some problems over the years for the team. He will be working hard to help out Mitch and be ready if he is ever called upon.

    Just a note, Chase is a little sensitive about his height so please don’t bring it up, just believe him when he says he is 6’0″, when it is obvious he is only 5’10”. Teasing him about his height really triggers his Napoleon Complex, and that is not pretty. Trust me, he makes up for that “missing” 2 inches in other areas.

    Please don’t tell him I am posting on here, he would not like it. I also think it is a little funny that the Bears went from a Giraffe as a backup QB to a Mighty Midget.
