    NFL 2021 offseason thread

    I think one of the bigger issues was in 2015 when they had a top 10 pick but the top 10 wasn't set-up that well for them they took Kevin White. They weren't really in the place where a top 10 receiver made sense, they knew they were going into a massive rebuild after 2014 and post-Jay. That draft alone could have built up some additional draft capital. The next year they traded up for Floyd, the next Mitch, the next Miller, the next Montgomery and Foles. So aside from MAck, just that 2015 draft may have helped keep the backsliding where they were constantly behind picks wise. Basically if Pace likes a guy, fine, I am fine with it. But if he doesn't have that same "conviction", trade down since he knows he likes to trade up. That said, bears also always seemed to be one pick behind that "pivot point" where every team is trying to move up for a guy. Just missed on Leonard Williams, 49ers were in drivers seat in 2017, etc.

    Yeah, here's one scenario that's kinda dominos and wild. Bears acquire Wilson with picks and stuff Seattle acquires Jimmy G and restructures deal with some signing bonus with some bears future 1st or some draft capital San Fran moves up for X QB that shanahan loves using picks from Bears via Seattle. Seattle drafts that notre dame LB and a new OT in first, and more etc.

    noice noice noice noice noice noice. Would love to get a breakdown on % of 65 and older who have started their vaccinations.
  6. Since they are getting zilch out of Otto I wouldn't be surprised if it is just an OPJ/drummond swap with maybe a second round pick or something. Drummond wakes a ton, not many teams could take that on, but bulls have some good tradeable contracts. I think it could be a good idea to see how Zach plays off a good, albeit limited, big like Drummond since you are probably building around Zach at this point. I don't really see it though, and bulls rumors have been pretty much from the sellers, so it will be interesting. We have zilch clue what bulls will do.

    Mock drafts have become boring as everyone is just circling Mac Jones around the bears and then someone like Eichenberg in the 2nd. I'm just a Russell Wilson boy now as it is more fun. @Chisoxfn June 1st would save SEattle a ton of money, and I thought this article was good. I didn't think waiting was that big of a deal aside from the rookie not being able to participate in OTAs, but this article was good on another point - it would be a pain in the ass for SEattle if it wanted to package the picks they received from bears in draft day trades. https://dabearsblog.com/2021/bears-need-to-force-action-on-russell-wilson

    Fans at opening day

    Yeah typically they herd people into just a few food options when expecting light attendance, I imagine part of plan will actually be to keep more vendors open to avoid that. Regarding seats, no idea would love to hear if any season ticket holders have had communication on how they were providing flexibility

    2021 MLB Draft Thread

    also just sidenote on law, he is my #1 media evaluator, but he is still annoying. I will say baseball draftguys have much less of a herd mentality than football/basketball, which is nice. I get that it's annoying that people think your rankings should reflect some x just because another writer did it. Callis is the worst because it just seems like all he does is take a mixture of others and then move up a few for interest. That said, Law had to know leaving Fabian out of his top 30 would be of interest. And in the comments, he can be such a jerk about it, like it is beneath him to have to explain his rankings. But that is kinda his job. The BA crew are just obsessively nice and I'll always back them up for that.

    Study: White Sox fans drink the most of any fanbase

    Sigh this makes me misty-eyed. Picking up some tall boys before hopping on the green line to drink in the parking lot before heading in is just one of my very favorite things. None of those things by themselves are good (green line is good), but together ... incredible.

    Yeah, here is the perfect storm. Brees still wants another year and Russ wouldn't do him like that and Payton wouldn't do him like that. Gruden re-commits to Carr with a new deal Dallas seemed to rebuff pretty early. Even with saints, the good news is bears won't be unable to provide similar package with draft compensation.

    Kyle Brandt is on the score now on why he has bears get a good QB hype and I'm dying laughing. He's so good.
