Every time Ballard signs a 25 year old LB, a bad Grigson signing get it's wings and goes to heaven.

 

 

:spit:            

 

One of the funniest lines written on this website in the 5-years that I've been a member!

 

BRAVO!!         That's going to be hard to beat for Post of the Day!

It just keeps becoming more and more reasonable to take a RB in the first. Not saying it would be better than getting a CB like Conley, but having McCafree or Dalvin Cook doesn't sound bad to me either.  

I agree.  I can't see them passing on McCaffrey or Cook if they are there and i think one of them will be.

K looked it up, guy was a 2nd round pick of the Bears.  Played with them for a couple years was traded away for a 6th to the Pats who traded him away for a 7th to the Lions.

 

Fortunately I work with a guy who's a Bears fan.  The lowdown I got on him was this.

 

A bust in the 2nd round.

Poor in coverage but decent run stopper

Hits very hard when he does make contact.  

Should only be used as depth, not a good starter.

This doesn't keep the team from drafting ILB.   He hasn't lived up to his pre draft hype.  He has been traded twice in his short career.   He is here to compete.  

 

Agreed I doubt this guy is guaranteed a roster spot, much less a starting job.

He keeps going after defensive players I like it.

    • No, you're conflating two separate issues.   I'm saying they have kept him because they like him as a backup and want him available in case he's needed, not because they don't want to admit that they made a mistake in overpaying him.   I'm not saying that the fact that they like him (which they obviously do) means that he's necessarily good.   The fact that they brought in Rivers and Eason is evidence that they have no problem admitting that they don't think JB is a quality starter, despite the fact that they paid him like he is.
    • Come on Supe.  Do you really think the FO wants Brissett talking about how he's a starter?  I would hope they spoke to him about that.  It's not personal.  NO CLUB wants their back up talking about starting to the media.   That directly says that the staff is wrong about me.  I should be starting.  That is rarely good.
    • Well if they thought he was a good QB last year they were wrong and had a funny way of showing it by hiring a middle aged QB coming off possibly his worst season and a 4th round draft choice.     I don't want to see JB enter another meaningful game ever for the Colts becasue I think he's no good.  It's that simple.   If all you are going to argue is that the FO likes him, then that ends every discussion I guess other than to say the Bears liked Trubisky, the Raiders liked Jemarcus Russell, the Skins liked Heath Shuler, etc. etc. etc.   Just because the front office likes a player doesn't really mean he's necessarily good.      
    • The only way I agree with this is if "good" equals 'capable of putting the team on his back.' He had other good games, including the opener. And other games that were good enough to give the team a chance to win.       This is irrelevant. It's your own personal issue and has no bearing on whether he's a good backup or not. The team obviously has no problem with it, including his head coach who was a backup for most of his career, and has fully embraced JB's approach as a backup.     Also not relevant to whether he's a good backup. And the 'whom no one wants' part doesn't track, either, unless you add on 'as a starter.' JB would have suitors in free agency, as a backup.
    • Dagnabbit.  This means a team that might have taken JB off our hands will just sign Kelly instead.
