  1. I agree - Wentz played very well. He got us into a position to win the game with a FG until Hot Rod missed another clutch kick.
  2. See you next year - absolutely TRASH team and coaching staff.
  3. I am going to be optimistic and say the Colts win 24-23 because they should be able to establish the running game. In Week 1, the Bears ran the ball 26 times and were effective. Since Nagy is not a run-first coach, they did not stick with it and should have. The Colts must run behind Center and Guard all day and try to wear down the Rams D-Line and subsequently win the 4th Quarter. Use Taylor and Mack A LOT in the first half, then change it up with some Hines in the 2nd half to look for explosive plays. A run heavy offense should open up the play-action game and maybe Wentz can take 4-5 deep shots to stretch out the linebackers and secondary. However, if Wentz is forced to throw 30+ times with Smith and Fischer out, it could get ugly fast. Go Colts!!
  4. Piniero can hit from 55 Here he’s hitting from 58 yards against the Colts: https://www.chicagobears.com/video/eddy-pineiro-splits-the-uprights-on-58-yard-fg
  5. Take a chance and trade up into the early 4th round to draft Stone Forsythe?
  6. 37. Jalen Mayfield - OT - Michigan 50. Carlos Basham - Edge - Wake Forest 74. Brevin Jordan - TE - Miami (FL) 111. Kary Vincent Jr. - CB - LSU 127. Adetokunbo Ogundeji - Edge - Notre Dame 128. Aaron Banks - OG - Notre Dame 2022 Cincinnati 3rd Round Pick
  7. So essentially, Irsay stepped in because Ballard is a cheapskate with salary cap space? LOL
  8. DE in round 1 then the OL from Notre Dame in round 2??
  9. Draft Kadarius Toney in the 1st round + draft OL in 2nd round + sign Clowney or Dunlap as the edge rusher we need
  10. We’d have to trade the farm to get into the top 3 picks to get Pitts
  11. No to Hicks - he is a very good player when healthy, but he has been injured and missed too many games the last 2 seasons. His age has been showing and has not been reliable. Bears talking heads up here even think he could be a surprise cut because of his injury history. The only Bears players I would be interested in would be Allen Robinson and Kyle Fuller. Robinson is an elite playmaker and could be HUGE in the Colts system. Fuller regressed last season some compared to previous seasons according to the Chicago media, but maybe a change in scenery would bring him back to being an impact player for a few more seasons.
  12. Foles isn’t very good, so no! I’d rather roll with Wentz and use Eason as the primary backup.
  13. I thought Toney was also named the most difficult WR to cover at the Senior Bowl week - as selected by the DBs
  14. Matt Ryan is a statue and is getting beyond his prime. If you want a less athletic, throw from the pocket QB then draft Trask in Round 2. Here’s my thought on how to solidify the offense in the offseason: Sign Fitzpatrick as an inexpensive FA and groom Trask/Eason as the future QB room. Draft an explosive WR in round 1 Sign Warmack to play Guard Move Nelson to LT Resign Pascal and Hilton to fill the WR corps Resign Burton to fill the TE corps Then focus on OL depth and defense for the rest of the draft and free agency.
  15. Agree 100% and said the exact thing about 10 pages ago and was laughed at by Chloe. LOL
  16. Walk away and save draft capital! Just sign Fitzpatrick to a 1-year team friendly veteran deal, sign a LT, draft a WR in round 1, and draft Trask in the 2nd round. Then we are still a contender to win our division in 2021. Let Fitz be the veteran presence in the room and groom the eventual franchise QB like he did with Tua in Miami. Whoever is better between Trask and Eason gets the clipboard, and the loser of the competition goes to the practice squad. In 2022, either Trask or Eason takes over the job.
  17. Even Bears fans are saying they hope their team stays far away from Wentz...that’s saying something. The Bears haven’t had a real QB for years, and they want no part of this guy.
  18. My concern about Prescott is what will he be like athletically post-severe ankle injury. His game centered around his ability to run, athleticism, and a strong arm. If his ankle never fully recovers, his athleticism and running ability will be minimized and his pocket movement may not be the same. If that's the case, would he be much better long term than a guy like Trask who is a more accurate passer....not to mention the huge difference in salary.
  19. I posted this in the RIvers retirement thread, but here are my 2 cents: Re-sign Jacoby Brissett for a minimal salary and tell him he will need to compete for the starting QB job while keeping Eason in the fray. This keeps a veteran presence on the team and a guy who could help out a young QB room. Draft: Draft a WR1 with our pick in Round 1 - the team needs weapons regardless who the QB is Trade up to the end of Round 1 or to the top of Round 2 and draft Trask - accurate pocket passer who can run this type of offense almost immediately or maybe sit 1 year if needed The QB room would be Trask on a rookie deal, Eason in his 2nd year on a rookie deal, and a fairly cheap veteran in Brissett. This will keep the salary for our QBs pretty low, allowing free agency money to be spent elsewhere. Free Agency: Sign a veteran Left Tackle who can immediately start - keeps the rest of a very good O-Line intact and should protect the QB while continuing to be a force in the running game Sign Mack to a cheap, team-friendly deal to really commit to the ground game to help out a young QB - Taylor, Mack, and Hines will be a great trio of RBs that this team can rely on and win
