    Who introduces Lach?

    • You know it’s gonna be Lovie.

      That should make for great viewing.

      Lewis preaches, foaming at the mouth, does his dance, drops the mic…

      Then Lovie the human ambient pill picks it up and intros Lach.

      • BearDown100393

        lol…. yeah I figure…. so I shall rephrase…. who SHOULD introduce Lach?

        • I would LOVE Mike Brown to intro him. That would be awesome.

          Or even Olin. Maybe Chico.

          • BearDown100393

            Lance???

          • Personally, I never really liked Briggs.

            I guess I never forgave him for making that “I will never play for the Bears again” remark.

            Seemed more like a mercenary. Then he got fat and quit on the team showing ZERO leadership.

            He’s no Mike Brown.

            But, that’s just me.

          • SC Dave

            Brown over Briggs for sure.

            But Lovie woild really be the best choice IMO. Tho Peanut would be way cool.

          • Dis Guy Trublinsky (Johnnywad)

            Ditto

          • I was thinking about Peanut too, but MB would seem like the logical player choice.

            Lach himself said that MB was the leader of that D. Once MB’s body fell apart, that’s when it became Lach’s D.

            MB seems like the natural choice. And he’s like fallen off the face of the earth. Would be cool to have him show up at Canton and give the speech.

            We all know how the Lovie speech would go, “Uhm, he did some stuff.” Stares blankly at clouds…

          • SC Dave

            No need to continue to dis Lovie, Butch. Probably our best coach since Papa Bear.

            Ditka had Finks and Vainisi.
            Lovie had Angelo.

          • But how much power did Lovie have in the draft. By most accounts, he is the one who wanted Cedrunk.

            Angelo is stupid for going along, but that choice alone likely cost us the SB .

            Also, I don’t think Lovie on the Bears was a bad coach. Trestman and Fox were def worse (and that’s saying something).

            But even you must admit Lovie is a boring ass speaker.

            He’d put everyone to sleep before Lach even steps to the podium.

            MB would be a much better choice in that respect. And I think MB would get the Bear fans more pumped up.

          • John F

            Anyone who plays Rex Grossman in the SB deserves to be fired ……….

          • Irish Sweetness

            OR had him as their first choice QB, yes.

          • AlbertInTucson

            Ditka BENEFITTED from Finks, but Finks left early in the Ditka regime (1982)
            because he was not consulted by Papa Bear about the Ditka hiring.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Prolly needs to be a jacket introducing you though, right? Samurai. Butkus.

          • CanadaBear

            Nope. Walter had his son introduce him.

          • KentuckyBearsFan

            Briggs knew how to end drives. Like with his Lamborghini.

          • Dis Guy Trublinsky (Johnnywad)

            Not Peanut?

          • Dis Guy Trublinsky (Johnnywad)

            Cutler would be fun.

            “Yeah, the first time I met Brian, he said I was a pussy………”

          • They should vote Cutler into the HOF just so they could do a roast format…

            Conte, “Jay tried to send me a text congratulating me, but that too was intercepted”

            And Jay can just sit there with a cig in his mouth the whole time.

            Be awesome.

          • EnderWiggin

            Howzabout Favre?

          • I’m Favred-out.

        • Irish Sweetness

          Samurai?

      • BerwynBomber

        Funny but there is no way Lewis does not go last.

    • John F

      I read somewhere it might be Briggs

  • BerwynBomber

    Lions name Patricia HC.

    • I can’t get this nagging feeling out that Flip is the guy out of all these coaches hired this yr.

      I understand he’s not even an OC, that it might be Pederson’s show, and that he doesn’t have the network yet for a strong staff, but considering how they violated Patricia in the SB with a back-up QB…

      • SC Dave

        No. It’s Nagy, damnit.

      • evantonio

        Eh. Foles has shown this ability before. To say that Flip is the guy, you’re saying he’s the reason Foles succeeded this year, and not Pederson re-tooling the playbook to play to Foles’ past success.

        • Foles was contemplating retirement! He was so bad, he couldn’t even beat out a horrible Keenum or Goff on the Rams.

          That’s like Nathan Enderle behind Cutler and Jason Campbell awful.

          That being said, it’s not just about Foles or Wentz (both outplayed Brady this yr, arguably the GOAT). It’s about scheming and outflanking Bill, arguably the greatest NFL coach ever.

          And by all accounts, Flip is not just a bookworm, but a leader and obsessed.

          Those are all qualities I love in HCs.

          Don’t know the guy. Never even heard him talk. And I don’t know how much of the Eagle’s O he’s responsible for, but I just have this suspicion that he’s gonna be good.

          By Jeff’s account, he was a bad interview.

          Then again, Trestman somehow interviewed better than Arians.

          And I imagine Bill didn’t exactly give a stirring interview either.

          • evantonio

            Contemplating retirement. Ok. Kurt Warner was bagging groceries, no? Wasn’t Josh McCown coaching High School badminton when we scooped him back up?

            Flip may be a bookworm, but he’s a QB coach. How much input did he have in outscheming and outflanking? You said it yourself – you don’t know how much of the O he’s responsible for.

            So where does the suspicion that he’s gonna be good come from?

          • Warner WAS bad. Martz saved his career, so coaching does matter.
            Maybe Pederson saved Foles the same way, but Flip I bet had a lot to do with it (and Wentz)

            That’s why the Eagles blocked Flip (likely at the behest of Pederson) from interviewing.

            They value him. Big time.

            Everything I have read about Flip is nothing but praise. “Smartest guy in the room” “Workaholic” “Detail oriented” “Leader’ just some of the things coaches, players, and personnel men heap on him. I won’t dig through all the articles, but they’re all pretty unanimous and consistent.

            That’s where my suspicion derives from.

            (Incidentally, Flip was Jeff’s initial pick from originally, prolly cuz he heard the same things)

            I’ve also heard good things about Nagy, but not to that extent.

            I’m not arguing Nagy is the wrong guy. Who knows? I just think Flip will become a good HC. Could be wrong.

      • BerwynBomber

        I joked about Patricia last night.

        Lions fire their most successful HC in a half century after he posted a winning record and hire a guy who just made Nick Foles look Johnny Unitas.

        • Reminds me of when Bears fired Lovie for Tresty.

          Let’s hope it ends the same.

          • John F

            Bears got rid of mediocrity (Lovie) for complete failure (Trest), both guys were incompetent in their own way.

    • BearDown100393

      Great hire!

      • John F

        For the Bears that is ………..

    • From Frasier, right?

      • BearDown100393

        Yeah, John Mahoney.

    • John F

      My brother-in-law’s father knew him well and I have heard he was an outstanding man.

      He played “Kid” Gleason (the Blacksox manager) in the movie Eight Men Out

  • It’s gonna be a looooong offseason, folks, so buckle up.

    OK. On that note. Waffle, native Soutsiders – have you guys watched “THE CHI”? Thoughts?

    • Irish Sweetness

      Yeah, I was wondering that too. Any good?

      I’m watching The Countrerpart with JK Simmons. A gateway exists between two parallel universes, and he has to work with “himself” to do stuff. I hope it’s not just a ruse to make really cheap TV.

      The Good Doctor is okay (autistic surgeon), but don’t miss Peaky Blinders …and there’s always 5 seasons of The Americans to get through if you haven’t seen it.

    • Dis Guy Trublinsky (Johnnywad)

      Check out Ozark. You too Irish.

      • BerwynBomber

        Fun show. Really like it.

        Did you see Mindhunter yet? Highly recommended.

        • Dis Guy Trublinsky (Johnnywad)

          Never even heard of it. I’ll look it up.

          I’m also working my way into Godless. I think I really like it but need another episode or two.

          • BerwynBomber

            Yup, I have Godless clued up. Will get to it soon.

        • I checked out the first episode of Mindhunter. The FBI profiler, right?

          Looked pretty cool

          • BerwynBomber

            Yup. Btw, E1 was the weakest of the season. So if you liked that it should only get better.

      • Yeah I heard that one was pretty good.
        And I recently watched some Peaky Blinders on Netflix, which was cool.

        And the soundtrack to that show is pretty kick ass.

  • ButtonShoes

    John Mahoney passed on? Well that sucks mightily. RIP to a true Chicagoan. I’ll watch some Frasier in tribute.

    • AlbertInTucson

      He was actually born in England but did become a Chicagoan.

      Lived in Oak Park.

      Cut his teeth as an actor with Second City, Chicago.

      Good actor.

      Good roles beyond Martin Crane on Frazier where he was excellent.

      • BerwynBomber

        I crossed paths with him once in OP about fifteen years ago. Took me an extra second or two to realize whom it was.

  • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

    Belichick did not seem to have an answer to Nick Foles, maybe because he did not have enough game film on him. Maybe its just me, but that seems a little ironic.

    • willbest

      foles has like 35 starts in his career.

      • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

        I know, was just throwing some shade at the mastermind of SpyGate.

    • Collinsworth is a bit of a penis, but he did point out how Bill moved the CBs and S to inside position to takeaway those quick RPO slants.

      Pederson anticipating this called a bunch of sideline routes.

      I bet Bill didn’t believe Foles would be able to hit those which require more touch.

      Foles did, and Aghlor, Ertz and Alshon (early) balled.

      Here’s Pederson yelling at Bill

      • AlbertInTucson

        Once again shown, if you can’t put pressure on the passer, you elevate him.

        I don’t think Foles even took many hits let alone any sacks.

        • For once I believe Bill was scared.

          They let Bortles get free cheap dump downs early but once they began blitzing him, esp with corner blitzes, that nullified Bortles, made him just nervous enough.

          The few blitzes I saw from the Pats were up the middle, picked up, and Foles to his credit immediately attacked that open zone the blitzer vacated.

          The Pats talent purge finally caught up to them.

          None of their pass rushers could even sniff Foles.

  • willbest

    do we pay butler?

    • Depends WHY Bill actually benched him. Considering how turrible the Pats D was, I imagine it had to be a pretty bad infraction.

      If it was just weed, I’d be down for Butler.

      I don’t really consider weed a deal breaker.

      Wouldn’t mind sending a 3rd to the Browns for Gordon.

      • Irish Sweetness

        We should absolutely take Gordon. Stipe Miocic called him a high-quality dude, and Stipe is a high-quality dude. He called in to Stipe’s gym to see him operate. Seems like a good kid.

      • BerwynBomber

        My only on-field issue with Gordon was that game we played against them about four years ago (might’ve been his rook year) when he seemed to gator arm any ball that might result in contact.

        • I think he got 1,500 rec yds his rook yr, so don’t think he alligator armed too many.

          Weed makes peeps paranoid too. Maybe he thought he saw an Orc coming up on him.

          • BerwynBomber

            Maybe it was his second year. But I remember that game and people commenting on his play here. We kept him completely in check.

            Btw, we barely won. Cutty had two picks the first half, one of which I believe was a pick six. But we hit a couple of Alshon/BMarsh jump balls later.

          • CanadaBear

            It was that game that convinced PE that Cutler was elite.

  • So, let me get this straight.

    Wages for the common man go up.

    Wall Street gets scared of inflation and plummets 1,000 points.

    #capitalism

    • Dis Guy Trublinsky (Johnnywad)

      This is a long overdo correction.

      • Funny how the correction happens when wages go up.

        I know the bull market can’t last forever, but what sparks the “correction” raises my eyebrow.

        So, according to my non-Goldman Sachs acumen.

        Wages go up. Wall st. assumes fed is going to raise interest rates. Market plummets.

        This seems like if your on a boat and you finally fix all the leaks, the market then just pokes another hole in you’re boat while they cruise by in their yachts selling you glue.

        (edit. for higher prices of course because of inflation.)

        • Dis Guy Trublinsky (Johnnywad)

          Nah. Including yesterday’s sell off the DOW is up 17% over a year ago and the S and P is up 13%. That’s if you weren’t paying attention to the fact that the market had just gone on historic run. I pulled a pretty big chunk out of the market a couple weeks ago because there was only one way it could go. So now I have to decide whether it’s time to stick it back in, or wait a bit longer. My head tells me buy in now, I’m well ahead of the game if I buy in where it sits. My balls tell me it’s going down further over the next few weeks. So do I get greedy and possibly miss the dip, or do I take my win and run?

          • CaponeBot 1.0

            Wad, I was stressing over the market and I know as a 40yr old I should invest more and let it grow but damn if it doesn’t feel good to just erase liabilities. I don’t need to overthink the market or stress about fluctuations. I know I’m missing out a little but what the hell.

          • Dis Guy Trublinsky (Johnnywad)

            I’m not really that far away from your position. We hit it pretty hard 20 years ago and kept after it for about 15 years. Five or six years ago, I decided to buy some property in Northern Michigan. Loved it so much I bought another one to rent out. They’re cheap, but they’ve doubled in value in 5 years. I don’t have long to go on my mortgage and I’ve got my kids covered for college to the point I decided I would years ago. I’m giving them a set amount per year, and they have to come up with the rest. I’m making it easy on them, but they do at least, need to have some skin in the game.

            So literally, last month, for the first time in over five years, we started putting back into the 401k. I haven’t moved a nickel around in that thing since we bought in. I took one look at the S and P and got a big chunk out and set it aside in a stable value fund. That fucker was up a stupid % in a very short, steep run. So now I’m trying to decide when I’m going back in with it. Not today. I don’t think we done fucking around. But I do think things will head back upward this year once things settle down.

            I always assume the worst. What do i have to do to have money on hand to survive a job loss, disaster, etc? So I pile up cash the best I can. When I get comfy, I buy something with real value. Like my places up North. I buy used cars, trucks and boats, used equipment for my business, when it’s something big, (like the badass Genie S40 I got last year, google it, it’s fun), etc.

            But I’m also done worrying. Fuck it. I could get hit by a bus tomorrow. I’m 44. I’ve busted my ass, now I’m looking for ways to squeeze extra percentages out of everything in hopes of retiring a few years earlier than I would have.

            Because fuck work.
