    When you watch him, he's being asked to do a lot. I mean Ryan A. has been a good story (UDA and all) but having to rely so much with no point guard has been really hard on Lavine. Not many good weapons around him either. Portis & Laurie are both good scorers and obviously Dunn is a much better PG than any of these other guys (even if he isn't a great distributor). This team is extremely short on talent and has a lot of jumbled pieces. Lavine is also playing a lot of minutes (isn't he 3rd in the NBA this season or something)?

    The Bulls need to acquire Lonzo and/or Ingram from the Lakers in an effort to facilitate a 3 team deal with another team for a star. Lonzo (Lavar aside) would be a great fit for Hoiball. By the way, I don't like Brandon Ingram but he's talented and worth taking a chance on.

    Meaning, they want the extra game and a 19 week season? An extra week without an extra game, should basically just mean one thing...one extra week of TV revenues at no additional cost (outside of normal revenue sharing type agreements). Players don't have to play an extra game, teams don't need to switch stadium arrangements, etc. It literally is a no brainer.

    2nd bye week makes everything doable. Literally everyone wins.

    I think it is more that you'd probably bring him back at 80-90% if you were contending...now you are going to wait until he is 100% to start pushing him and you'll give him an extra week or two to be extra safe.

    My presumption is if we were contending, Lauri would be coming back much closer to his original time frame. These extra two weeks are more about "tank" and being extra conservative than anything else, imo.

    Umm....kickers are going to miss field goals. Entering the game against the Lions, I didn't have any massive issue with Parkey. Was he great, no, was he bad, no. I'm certainly not going to blast a guy for missing a 53 yard field goal. Those are not gimme kicks, therefor, he is going to have misses. The Arizona game was a high percentage shot and the Jets game was ugly so not one you'd like miss, but I can certainly understand it given the conditions. The Lions game was plain old awful. I'm not even sure what happened or if he just is that uncomfortable with the conditions as it seemed like he thought he made every kick. And usually kickers have a pretty good idea when they hit it, what they've done, so something was amiss yesterday. My bigger fear is that at somepoint, these type of games can get in your head (at least for the season) and those memories can be tough to get rid of.

    He'd be a pretty big upgrade, imo. That said, i recognize the loss of a pick and the fact that he had a very rough post-season.

    I presume he'll end up staying with Sixers.

    The Bears haven't been short on cap space at any point during Pace's tenure, so I don't think cutting Gould had any impact on who we signed (especially since it wasn't until the very end of the pre-season when they cut him).

    I think Nagy is making the right play in supporting Parkey. The guy has talent but is obviously in a funk. I think part of it is, people always underestimate how hard it is to kick in soldier field. The concerning part is, it can be hard to overcome a funk, so while I think an off-season could help cure things, I don't know that the regular season will save him. And no, cutting Gould was never a good move...I debated many on here at the time, but that is the past. Yes, he lost a game or two for them late one season, but they were not gimme kicks and guys who have excelled like he had deserved the benefit of the doubt. You kick as long as Gould has and you are going to have the occasional off game. All that said, I don't know if Gould would have kicked as good as he has with the Bears...I think the release motivated him to put in additional work and make some corrections that might not have happened if he stayed in Chicago.

    Huge game in prime time next Sunday. I’d say it is the most meaningful football game in Chicago since that game where Conte gave up the TD to the packers late that knocked them out of the playoffs. Hopefully it is just the first of many big games for the Bears under Nagy!!!

    Nice all around win with exception of more special teams miscues. Was nice to see Miller and Robinson with big days on offense. Mitch played well...bad man I’d feel better if we could run the football. Defense played very well as well. One of the tds shouldn’t have happened since it was the drive should have ended in a fumble.

    A lot of football left in this game (especially since Bears have blown 2 good size leads already this season). Hopefully they finish strong!
