    Goodbye Soxtalk

    I don't blame you. I've done the same with the Bulls and with moving out to LA, I've followed the Dodgers as an NL team. The Dodgers are what the Sox want to be. Don't depend on Uber talent, but flexibility and identifying talent and tweaking it to be successful. Even then, they spend. In order for the Sox to be successful, to sustain success, they will have to spend. To not want to spend 300 mil on a 26 year old stud who would sign with you since the Yankees and Red Sox are out, is one move that screams cheap. "Oh oh but we tried."

    Ron Mercer signed with the Bulls. He was traded with Artest and Miller for Jalen Rose and Travis Best. Eddy Curry was actually looking good his last year I'm Chicago until he had the heart problems. He was traded for a 1st and some ok vets. It was the right move. Trading Chandler for cap space was stupid, compounded by the fact that he looked like an all star immediately after he left. Jamal Crawford was also traded by Pax to NY as Hinrich was chosen over him. Either which way, I'm apathetic to this franchise with a FO that is ignorant, tone deaf or flat our doesn't care.

    You're telling me to look situationally when your claim is looking at players as a whole. Watson has shown to be a better QB overall. Rodgers, Goff, Wilson, Ryan all have as well. There is one statistic that shows otherwise and the weight for situational football is found there. You're telling me I'm going with counting stats when Passer Rating is still a thing and not a counting stat that shows Trubs is not on any of those QBs' level. You know damn well you wouldn't take Trubisky over the QBs I mentioned over their career or just for this season. Lemme guess, you still believe in being clutch in baseball too.

    Ok so he was so much better than Rodgers, Russell, Ryan and Goff as well as Watson?

    Thank you for admitting you are simply picking out one stat that "shows" your argument when literally nothing else does so. And this is after saying that one stat doesn't tell the picture. Tells me all I need to know. Moving on....

    I'm not saying just one or the other. I'm using all of them in conjunction with each other. Someone already pointed out the flaw with QBR. Or do you really think Mitch is better than Tom Brady?

    So we are throwing out Yards thrown, TDS thrown, passer rating and teams each plays with? Okay, gotcha

    Huh? He doesn't. I'm not the only one who sees that. Guys on local Chicago radio see that too. Guys who have played the game. Nagy had one game where he decided he absolutely had to run the ball with Howard and that was against the Rams. Nagy attempts to use short passing as a running game instead of just running with his best runner. Not saying you have to do it every down or get to "smashmouth" football, but you should use it to keep the defense honest. Lastly, why was Trubs running on 3rd and long?

    I disagree. Watson runs for his life Everytime the Texans are on offense. They had no line. He pretty much had to get used to running on every snap after week 3

    As a Rams fan, here's what I see: Nagy won't or doesn't know how to adjust his play calling. He pretty much scripts the whole gameplan. The Eagles looked ready for anything the Bears were doing offensively. So what does Nagy do? Keep forcing it. There are more than a few times in which Nagy should've ran it up the gut with Howard, and simply wouldn't. That's been him all season long though. Waddle from W&S has been saying it all season. If they're playing the pass, you gotta be willing to run the ball to open the pass up. Nagy hasn't shown he will do that. I'm almost sure that Nagy will still call for a throw, even if there were 0 men in the box. Horizontal/Screen passes do not substitute for run plays. Nagy has a horrible knack for game clock management. God awful. Calls a timeout with the clock already stopped on the Eagles last drive. If Cohen doesn't have a big return, or Mitch doesn't make a laser throw to Robinson, that would've definitely came into play. Mitch is way too inconsistent. I believe Chicago has the offensive pieces around him, but he absolutely has to be better and more consistent. Maybe the off-season will help him make the next big step. He desperately needs it if the Bears plan on being a real contender. Parkey will get the blame for one moment, but to me, Trubs and Nagy deserve the blame for the offensive side of the game. They were not going to win next week doing what they did this week. Mitch over threw Robinson a ton, even on completions and underthrew others.

    Georgia should've made it. ND should have to play a conference title game or not be playoff eligible.

    Machado: Update - Manny, do you officially like us?

    Can we talk Fernando Tatis Jr?

    Pending White Sox Move? (*May contain partially digested news)

    So we are convinced that Manny will sign here because a bunch of players who couldn't get it done with the Orioles with him are now with the Sox? And the whole, "they were teammates" is overstated. There are guys in any sport that are countrymen that can't stand each other. Abreu doesn't like Puig, Jordan didn't like Isiah Thomas, etc. It really does nothing in the grand scheme of things.

    Update: Machado met with Sox

    I don't believe any of y'all unless it comes from RockRaines and I haven't seen him post in a long time
