    Time to sign Gerrit Cole’s family and friends!

    Which is substantially better the chance of a turnover or more than the one yard we gave up when kneeling. It was a dumb decision by a coach who playing afraid.

    This. I can get mad for Mitch throwing a pick, but the reality is, there isn't a QB in the league that doesn't throw at least some picks. Mitch has not been a turnover prone QB, to where I can really hammer him for it. I can tell you Skrines should have had a pick on Rivers on the 1st drive of the game and seperately, one the deep ball that Allen dropped, a better play by our DB and it is a possible INT too. If you get into the game of dropped picks vs. not, it gets messy (cause every QB benefits from some and has a few go there way). I think it sucks the Bears didn't pull this out, because if they win, I think there is a lot more positivity around the offensive game-plan. People would have slightly different glasses on. I don't change my glasses (win or lose). I saw a QB play significantly better. Everyone else may say..so what...it is still bad...but I go back to, while this season sucks and has been a bust (and probably will be), I still believe the Bears best foot forward is somehow in Mitch having a light switch flip and all of a sudden taking off. That won't be a one game thing...but it certainly is something that could happen during the last half of the season. The Vikings were 4 games into the season and Cousins was horrible...now double down on those games and Cousins is one of the best QB's in football? Note I am not saying that Mitch has been or is a good QB. By every single measure he has struggled, however, this past game, was his best game of the season and with improved play calling in the red zone, everyone would be ignoring that 4th quarter pick. And yes, the fumble sucked, but sometime bad things happen and it isn't as if Mitch has a "fumble" issue. Better a fumble than a pick, imo. But I think this week, more than any other, those who zero in on Mitch's game, will point out one Gabriel miss. I can watch any of the Bears opposing QB's and show that each teams QB regularly misses a throw or two a week. I also could point out quite a few 3rd down and other plays where Mitch went through his progressions, had nice footwork, and delivered strong throws (throws that many NFL QB's don't make). Not good enough..but if I'm Nagy, I'm liking how Mitch came out and responded after such a horrific Saints game...could he get better, absolutely, but you also need to protect him somewhat from the media, especially in Chicago. One week at a time and Nagy has to know that his best foot forward is creating momentum for 2020 and if by doing that, they figure things out to get back into the race in 2019, great, but at this point forward, everything I am doing is centered around developing my players, most notably my offense and gameplan. Win trust 1 week at a time and prevent a massive collapse.

    No, it's because he refused to run straight ahead for 3 straight posessions inside of the 5 yard line and ended up with 3 field goals. He finally ran Montgomery into the line on the 4th possesion inside the 5 and got a touchdown.

    And there goes Madrigal or something like that (since the Mets can't exactly use Vaughn), so now I also need Gennett at a minimal price to cover my 2b spot.

    What has trubisky done well to remotely believe this? Josh Allen has had more moments the last two years with a worse supporting cast to say "he has potential".

    it's never an attractive job to bring in a GM and say " you have to keep the coach"

    It was down to Pace or Ballard and pace surprised won the job. And Ballard is building the team the way I like, lots of picks, lots of FA space. Pace hit on some big players by being aggressive but you see how quickly the window closes in the NFL and you need depth so much more than being top heavy.

    The Sox don't convey any attitude of urgency to its fanbase. They either know what they want to do with this roster building or don't. Right now they should get Jose's signing done and announce it. If it's against baseball rules or unwritten rules to upstage the World Series, then announce it the day after the series is decided. Then get to work and make significant offers to the guys they feel we need to WIN next season. My gosh all these losing seasons in a row. Time to act at least like the FO cares. They could leak some stuff to media at least.

    "42 yard field goals are basically automatic" -head coach of team that missed a 35 yard field goal earlier that game

    Completely agree. That was just baffling why he didn't do that or at least get closer.

    Fuck you guys, Y2HH said Rogue One was meh. It is decided.

    I really liked Rogue one. Solo was underrated. If I had to rank the new movies in order of best to worst so far, it would be the following: 1. Rogue One 2. Solo 3. TFA 4. TLJ Just my opinion, but TFA and TLJ are worse than Revenge of the Sith at least, and arguably worse than The Phantom Menace.

    I think there's a chance that JDM's decline in slugging % in a live ball 2019 may be problematic. After all, Father Time is undefeated, and he is a 32 year old statue who experienced an ~11.5% drop in slugging [.557 from .629] in a year where the league-average slugging % went up. I don't disagree that he had been a great hitter, in the past. Will he still be in 2021 as a 34 year old statue, when this club may be ready to compete? Who knows. Regardless, I don't see this club signing him, given his age/cost/agent and this org's thriftiness. But, this may be a situation where he may be in decline as this team is hoping to be climbing into contention.

    The Force Awakens was good. Rogue One was good. Solo was decent. The Last Jedi was the only trash one so far of the newest 4.

    It's also yet ANOTHER indication that we should be hiring someone from that organization for double their current salary and sticking them behind Hahn and ahead of Haber as the heir-apparent.

    Good trades for now, but no pats on the back until champagne corks are flying.

    So you're telling us this is just about the trades that jump started the rebuild ? Because there doesn't seem to be any disputing that but plenty to dispute in other trades, I mean great, pat the FO on the back all you want for picking some of the top talents from many many lists that tell you the top talent. But try relying on your talent evaluators for Major League talent for trades and it hasn't gone as well. Maybe some Sox scout/evaluator out there was adamant about not trading Tatis but it happened anyway. You read stories about how the scout for Trout was so convinced he was going to be good it may have swayed the Angel's FO to value him higher and they sweated out seeing if anyone else would pick him. Lat time I heard Hahn talk about how convinced a scout was about someone it was Manny Banuelos.
