Glad to have Vic back in the fold. Its nice to see continuity in an area that we’ve seen actual progress. Happy days, lets keep it rolling.
I wonder if Nagy will fix Trubisky like Trestman fixed Cutler?
you aren’t doing this right.
I’m not the right guy for the job, TBH.
Fix? You mean the guy with multiple years of playing and acting like an asshole? Or the rookie that had 13 starts that has a lot to learn and is willing to learn? Get your shit right, Don.
because nobody else would hire him
because it’s comfortable and you’re afraid to be alone
Did this really merit a new thread?
Y’all eat ass?
no, no it doesn’t
The Bears stink more than Oprah’s nether region after a 0.25 mile run.
has anyone else read the profile/replies by Don? My advice…”Hide yo Kids, hide yo Wife”…. damn! this guy is a wierdo.
Vic Fangio wipes back to front
aggressively like he’s pull starting a mower
why do you hate AMERICA?
the ads here offend me
He’s like a tertiary character on a sitcom. Like the least favorite character’s forgettable dad.
I never imagined in my head he would like he does.
I did not know what he looked like until recently.
“Da Bears” is trademarked by the NFL. Sending them an email as we speak.
More like oscillating drum.
I see the McCaskeys finally learned how to create Disqus accounts.
is it true that if you don’t use it, you lose it?
I heard that id they do that they’re going to change they’re going to call their defense Da Wall
When you try to find a new job but can’t so you gotta show back up Monday morning at your old job
Feels anti-climactic. But anything would be besides resurrecting Buddy Ryan from the dead.
I’m all for *some* stability (after firing everybody but this guy) in the locker room.
But I was also hoping Vic would go to a team with an offensive coach named Dan so the pairing could be called Fandangio.
GM, HC, QB, and DC all in place through 2020.
Come on man
Does Trubisky have the ability to throw left? I sure haven’t seen it.
Ok, Jeffe, see what you have wrought?
Good thing you have the “block user” still here.
everybody needs a safe place.
Gawd, no shit. Six users blocked instantly.
they’re drafting a cease and desist letter.
M/F/K: Ellen, Virginia McCaskey, Hill dog
i’m marrying VM cuz she’s ded soon anyways.
rich af too.
downside, you’d own the bears.
Lol, could always sell em. OR FIX EM
LOL, that’s unpossible.
to fix them, that is.
This shit could stop. The rest of it is good shit
Hahah WHAT is happening
Walk away for 45 minutes and come back to someone taking a shit all over our blog.
I’ve got a lot of “This user is blocked” showing up on my page.
congrats on being a huge pussy.
Almost the whole thing now.
Funny, but from here to the bottom of the page is 98% “This user blocked” and it only took three or four clicks.
Oh gawd… did the children that used to follow data around come back?
It would appear so. I have no idea what prompted that.
They;re just trolling. Ignore them and they’ll get bored and leave. Getting angry in response to their posts is exactly the response they want.
Yep… I believe Jeff’s epic twitter week brought in some new junk.
Revenge of Hoge and Jahns for parlaying their scoops as his own.
Nah. One of them posted a Tweet of mine about a potential Bears Super bowl below, photoshopped to look like it was from the Onion. I’m guessing that did it.
Hey man, if you are writing for other places, be sure to post those links here. I don’t twitter much anymore and wouldn’t find them otherwise.
Nah, I don’t have enough time to write as much as I want here, much less put out content anywhere else.
These are folks from the site where I first started. That site is dead, they must have migrated to a new spot, and it’s been 4-5 years since I’ve interacted with them much.
Not sure you want to admit to interacting with them at all!
Most of them aren’t bad dudes, they’re just here trolling for fun. Ignore them.
Kids these days . . . .
I assume Fangio likely got a 3 year contract, meaning Bears
have GM, HC, QB, and DC all in place through 2020.
Goal for Bears has to be playoffs in 2018, prime Super Bowl
window in 2019-2020

Fuck yes. Who doesn’t like this??
Holy shit. I didn’t even know there was a pizza emoji.
I didn’t even know there was a need for a pizza emoji.
Must be a cheese thing.
“SB window from ’19-’20”
LOL @ The Bears having a real shot in the next 20 yrs.
Y’all ever wash your wive’s panties?
Bears hired a young, inexperienced head coach. He’s surrounding himself with experienced coaches (OC, DC, OL, and ST all have more than a decade of experience at their current post).
I like that.
Well, we tried the opposite last time, young GM and experienced coach. Maybe the opposite will work.
if they were any good, they would have gotten an opportunity as HCs.
Wow, air tight logic there
Hopefully they won’t need to draw straws for “interim” HC in 2 seasons.
Bears are married to the Pace-Nagy-Trubisky trio for 3 years (4 years on contract means 3 years realistically, barring an epic disaster).
We shall see.
We. Shall. See.
And that is seriously fucking exciting. I’m stoked
Apparently my talk of a potential Bears’ Super Bowl title in the next few years brought them out of the woodwork. Sorry about that.
My logic is the same as it was before the season: when you have a solid QB who plays like a veteran on a rookie deal, that’s a $25M/yr QB (maybe $30M/yr by the time Trubisy’s deal is up) making less than $10M a year.
That’s the time when your QB has the most value to the team he will at any point in his career, which is why you have to think SB. For the Bears, that’s 2019-20, when Trubisky is in his 3rd and 4th year as a starter and has cap hits of $8M and $9M, respectively.
They have other young talent that will still be on rookie deals for part or all of that time too, but the biggest $$ jump is at QB.
I have no idea if the Bears will actually win a SB in either of those 2 years. Even if they’re one of the best teams in the NFL for that stretch, the odds are against them. But that has to be seen as a realistic yet potentially attainable target by those inside of Halas Hall.
Trubisky can’t throw it left. Good luck.
The diff between us making and missing the SB….is not saving even $15M on a QB…
One more stud on the OLine, another WR, a pretty good S, and a Stud CB…then start talkin SB.
Welcome aboard. You drink my flavor of kool aid and I take that as a compliment as others here will attest. The future’s so bright, we gotta wear shades.
I want OT, Edge, WR, ILB and CB.
1st & 2nd round S & CB
Mid round Olinemen for depth
3rd Pass rusher to keep depth
With Hiestand the line coach from ND and two of his boys going out in the first round? I’d love to see McGlinchey, but our O line, if healthy, can still be quite good. That said, hard to pass on a lineman who can be pro bowl caliber for ten years.
Hard to judge that worth tho. You can pull a Sitton all the time…they even let Lang go too….T’s come up too, but you just pay an extra 1M or so for them. Pass Rushers and Elite CB’s just don’t make the market…If they do we talkin $17M+ or $90M dumb ass contracts(or whatever that Jags guy got).
Totes not gonna complain in investing in either.
I’m not sure I’m with you here all the way Wood. I mean the AFC keeps sending the same QBs back year in and year out. They’re well beyond their rookie deals.
True, and that’s where we want to be. Can’t get there without going for it as Woodsy describes
I do not agree with that. Now we have a great core group of young talent and when the winning starts to happen, people will want to be staying and signing in FA. Quality drafting is what has been missing and Pace has been very good at finding great talent.
I don’t disagree with that either.
That’s a fair point. It’s certainly not the only way to win in the NFL. BUT we’ve seen a number of teams do it in recent years (49ers and Seahawks most recently). Denver too had a ton of cheap young talent on rookie deals in their SB run that they couldn’t afford to keep.
The trolls are getting nervous
Remember when the Bears traded up when they didn’t have to?
But for real tho, White comes in healthy this year, with 2 RBs! Offense gonna have plenty of options. Callin it. Wright, Ballamy, Shaheen and a draft pick, PLUS the D….8-8 Very likely!
expecting a guy who 1) can’t stay healthy, and 2) hasn’t been good when healthy is insane and classic homerism.
Kevin White is certainly the missing link to creating a new Bears high octane offense.
He’d be gone if he was done… The ones in charge still believe.
yeah, the bears have zero bad players residing on their roster.
Erryone has lesser players. I said “done” tho. I haven’t given up…
that’s fine but expecting a lot is foolish.
700-800 would be huge, not hard to expect.
quite hard to expect given his track record.
*looks up college stats*
He’s not gone yet, he may not make it out of camp.
Also high octane isn’t necessary. The dude is huge, he’ll take a ton of pressure off the others, even when not making plays. If hes not…that means they are putting a slow or small guy on him….that ain’t happenin!
Are we talking about the same Kevin White? Dude isn’t good.
Kevin White is bone crushingly awesome.
*hasn’t performed yet
Remember when the Bears could have drafted Beasley, Gurley, M. Peters, L. Collins, A. Peat, among others but took Kevin White instead?
Nice dick and balls.
So Data’s the culprit:
“One Tweet about a possible Bears Super Bowl and trolls from a site I wrote for 5 years ago come to find me. Good times.” Jonathan Wood
you must be one of his 3k followers
question: did he give himself that nickname?
People give themselves nicknames?
that’s right, small dick mcgee
Member last week when Packers fans wanted Vic Fangio as their DC, but opted to hire a DC that never called plays for the defense he coached?
I’m sorry, we’re supposed to be trolling Bears fans.
Your QB is v similar to Rush Limbaugh.
Y’all into nuru pornography?
I was into your mother!
Aaron Rodgers must have just been traded.
He just came out.
Just made it “official”.
LOL Danica girly boy Patric
Nah. Injury prone and old.
*vikings trade 4 first round picks for him
shameful stuff knowing that that’s the only way the Bear will ever sniff a division title.
His clavicle finally died
Oh Blessed Blogfather- can thou smite these offending souls who have descended upon our beloved sanctuary? I implore you oh powerful one to strike them down with great vengeance and furious anger.
Is this a safe space?
Where are the cookies?
it’s too cold for snowflakes.
Damn. I was really hoping for Bettcher.
he would have been the Bettcher option
Also, someone please ban Data from twitter.
what would he do with all that time he’d save posting his 80k tweets?
just shit my undies. can somebody give me a hand?
So the Bears huh?
Lane Taylor >>>>>>>>>>>> Josh Sitton.
We won that.
Fuller shit the bed.
Jordan Howard is a poor man’s Jamaal Williams.
A. Jones >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Cohen
Data has worse followers than Jeff
Great read here:
Nice. It definitely sounds like Nagy has an offense in mind that Trubisky is well suited for.
Well done by all parties thus far. Outside of Gruden, has another HC even been hired?
Hey, add in the O line coach who has trained up two linemen at ND who are projected in the top15 players in the draft and you have what you need to coach up for the WC/Spread they will be playing. This is one hell of a plan Pace has playing out. Need a mobile QB? Check. An impact TE? Check. A Joker back? Check. Now train up the O line and get ready to move out.
I”ve read a couple of times the OT is projected in the 3rd rd. Have no idea. Don’t watch college ball.
An offense tailored to your QBs skill set.
What a concept.
Nice to have a QB who HAS a skill set.
Jesus Christ what happened here? Retarded 12 year olds should be monitored whem they use the internet.
Jeff had to get page clicks up so he recruited them from a special needs school. I hear its cheaper than getting the chinese to do it.
Should’ve gone with the russians. According to Hillary they’re insanely effective and insanely cheap.
Landry and Norwell please. Thank you uncle Pace.
We got slot, but I’d take Poe to spell Hicks or Goldman.
Norwell would be great, but I bet the Panthers resign him.
Bears hire Mike Furrey as receivers coach
Rich Campbell (Tribune)
The Bears hired former NFL receiver Mike Furrey to be their receivers coach, the team announced Friday. Furrey played in the league for eight seasons (2003-10); Bears fans probably would remember him best for his three seasons with the Lions (2006-08). He spent the last two seasons as head coach at Limestone College, a Division II school in Gaffney, S.C. Before that, he coached receivers at Marshall University from 2013 to ’15. Furrey’s arrival casts heavy doubt on whether incumbent quarterbacks coach Dave Ragone will remain with the team as part of coach Matt Nagy’s staff.
Remember watching that guy on the Lions, always liked him. 2nd in the league in catches one year I believe.
Guys, I banned the one asshole down here. Let me know if he resurfaces.
Might need to extend that, but thanks Jeff.
I could put up with Nigerian princes stranded in space stations, but the trolls are too much.
I draw the line at Packer fans squatting behind the Brat Stop in Kenosha.
Just someone email me because I don’t spend as much time down here as I should. If there’s an issue, I’ll handle it.
They only show up a couple times a year. I find it fascinating that somebody like Data managed to get himself a gaggle of internet trolls.
No I am still here…..
so am I
Thank you for fumigating.

Jeff – Thanks for the instant and ongoing updates this week – they brought some very appreciated hope to (some of) us diehard Bears fans. Have a great weekend. Cheers.
The trolls were easy to lose. Just four or five clicks of block user and “poof,” they disappeared.
I wonder which ‘This User is blocked’ this is.
just messing with you. lol
I blocked them all immediately.
The only proper response
I liked the pizza emojis. I want to know how that works.
Well this place seems to be back under control. Cheers fam
Son of a….
haha, well good morning boys. what is theee fuck happened here?
Through an epic day of hockey wagering I have replenished my bankroll. The question now becomes:
The Jags D is not good enough to overcome Bortles against the Steelers are they?
There’s a pizza emoji. And nothing will ever be the same.
Data said the Bears would possibly win the Super Bowl in a couple years and the gates of hell opened. Nutshell.
i just need to focus on ATL/PHI
Hahahaha. Tiki drinks got you looking up stats and revisiting money lines.
The jags D is can NOT overcome Bortles vs Steelers. Bortles is absolutely turrible.. and he makes it ten times worse by his ‘ I am an amazing QB’ demeanor by dancing all over the field, laughing and being downright fuckin giddy when he embarrasses professional QB’s everywhere by playing the terrible games that he does
sold. Steelers for the fucking win. ENTIRE BANKROLL.
Note: If the Jags win and Blake fucks me i’m just going to buy a Bortles jersey and will wear it in shame.
Hahahaha. Yes!!! Bortles shouldn’t even have beat the Bills… the Bills defense came to play, but many defenses look great against Bortles… and he still only scored 10 effin points! Steelers win 27- 10(max)
Man there’s absolutely no reason that Jax should beat the Steelers but I don’t know. That seems like it could be a cruel joke from the gods in the making.
JAGS for the win!!!!
Is Bortles good enough to beat the Steelers?
Only if you bet on the Steelers.
I hate Bortles.
I hate the Steelers.
BRING BACK FULLER

Said earlier in the week that I felt it was less than 50/50 Bears keep Vic for a variety of reasons. Glad they did. It could be a strong reason some of the UFA’s on D decide to re-sign
Weird that genius insider Greg Gabriel said it was less than 50/50 Fangio would be back but hapless blogger 1,000 miles away knew full well that it was happening. But he’s so smart….
meow. kinda bitchy there pal.
gonna scratch gabriel’s eyes out??
They give me cat scratch fever. Cat scratch fever
I guess Gabriel does not follow Jahns and Hoge on Twitter.
gabriel is quite good actually. worked for the bears. knows the organization well. has many contacts around the NFL. he played football. i played football. you didn’t. hmmmm. you come across jealous and quite insecure.
The key for any new young HC is the hiring of his staff. Nagy has filled most of the most important positions and gets an A+. The offensive staff so far is superb
I want to be your sledgehammer. Why don’t you call my name? Oh let me be your sledgehammer. Put your mind at rest.I’m going to be-the sledgehammer. This can be my testimony. I’m your sledgehammer

brad biggs, hub arkush, dan popei, matt bowen, and gabriel, of course, the best commentators re: the bears.
People trying to misconstrue @BradBiggs words. Not a good idea. Few are better than Brad on the Bears beat. Known Brad since ‘01 when he came to Chicago and he’s the best!
Anybody got a list of Bears Free Agents handy?
Outside of Fuller and possibly Nugent, what else needs to get done before FA begins?
Found it. Yeah, definitely some guys in there we want back.
Flyer on Houston
Perhaps a couple more.
Houston is definitely a solid guy to have back.
He surprised me filling in down the stretch. Looked better rushing the passer than he did in his first stretch with the Bears.
Two ACLs is certainly cause for concern. But if he’s cheap, and counted on as a role guy and not a stud, I’d work on keeping him.
its that what you like to eat?
