    I wasn’t expecting huge things this year but I didn’t expect it to be this bad. Completely pathetic for a team with so much talent but low basketball IQ and terrible coaching.

    I am really mad at how this season has played out but on the flip side, if the Bears fumble a run trying to gain a few extra yards, we'd be saying the same thing but in reverse.

    It's apparent that the Bears can't even mistakenly draft a good QB, so why do we even hope that they try this over again? Unless we find a gem, any rookie that steps into Soldier Field from now on and throws their first bad pass for a pick is going to be booed endlessly. As frustrating as Cutler was, he was probably the best QB in Bears history and would likely be pretty damn good (relatively speaking) on this current team. We traded for him because he was somewhat established already in the league and that is why I think the Bears need to pounce on one of these talents that may be on the block like Cam or Foles because we don't have 3-4 years to determine if another rookie QB is going to work out.

    JRich isn't exactly a beacon of efficiency and consistency, Butler is a clear upgrade in my opinion overall on offense and Jimmy is a guy willing to take the big shot even though he's not a 1A. Personally, I also don't think 4th is far fetched (I've seen somebody projected 3rd), Raptors lost Kawhi and needed OT to beat the Lakers rejects, Celtics have a real chance at falling off and the three teams atop Miami last year were Charlotte, Detroit and Orlando. I think some outlets believe there is a good chance Miami swings a deal for a star with some of their young pieces. I don't even like them but they have a chance to be pretty good in the East.

    This. They shot a higher % from 3 than they did overall. Bulls can also light it up and had a terrible 1H/1Q shooting and Got back into the game. Definitely need to find ways to make stops on D but they have legit talent.

    I'm not surprised by this at all. Their top scorer last year was Josh Richardson replaced by a great 1b and two way player in Jimmy. Two very good looking rookies with potential, Justice Winslow had a nice season as a better scorer and facilitator. Bam Adebayo was really good the last two months of the season. They had no star power and almost made the playoffs, they could be a lot better with so much uncertainty in the East and stacked with young guys with potential that are already getting better.

    I doubt that they would rather suck over selecting a black quarterback. They have black pro bowlers all over the field and listen to rap music in Club Dub. They simply tried getting cute, some people were actually rating Mitch higher than the others which is fascinating.

    Paris Ask your hotel to help you get a seat at Le Chateaubriand, this is everybody's chance to get an unreal dining experience for a decent price compared to others of the same quality. It's Michelin starred, casual dress but is mind-blowing. Would echo what others said, google best bakeries, cheese shops and wine shops. Get some bread, ham, cheese, desserts, wine and chill on the Seine or in a courtyard... they are everywhere. I'd recommend Bike About Tours, they bring you to the lesser-known of Paris which is basically what you want because you can walk to Eiffel Tower and all the tourist sites and don't need to pay a Bike Company to show them to you. It was amazing. London Pub food is your best bet for local type "street food". It's a melting pot, tons of options.

    Could you elaborate on this statement some more? Unless you have some insider info, I don't think that it's right to say that but that's IMO.

    Well, personally, I'm in sales. If our top sales person that has a personal relationship with our biggest account leaves and that business tanks, she's going to cost me a nice company growth bonus. As another said, he owes nothing to nobody. The Colts should have given him an offensive line years ago and we may not be witnessing this. I'm sure we will get more news as time goes on, he wasn't even practicing so he may have been out for the year, anyways.

    It's a job for him. If any of us get tired of our job, we may decide to step away no matter if it's good timing for the company or not. Emotions get the best of people but that is a bad look. There are rumors that he told the Colts earlier this year of his intentions but they didn't want to lose out on so ticket sales for this upcoming season so they kept it under wraps. This could line up and make sense seeing as they were supposedly turning down offers for Jacoby Brissett left and right back in April, their GM said he had to be "bowled over" to make a deal.

    You know you can “be sober” and then go back to not being sober when you’re an addict, right?

    Mets got Stroman for a fairly cheap price. He’s not an Ace but he’s had some solid numbers in that brutal division over the years.

    Signed ticket (framed) by Mark after his first no-hitter that we attended...my Wife surprised me by getting it to Mark via a Batboy she was friends with.

    They had an opportunity to get elite talent at a solid price to add to Moncada, Anderson, McCann, Abreu and Eloy who have all produced this year. Imagine that 1-6 with Machado, That offense had the opportunity to be elite over the next handful of years. Then, A couple of pitching signings to add to our rotation for 2020 and we are looking at a team that would have made serious noise. 2019 was the year to get one of the big hitters, 2020 is a year to get a big pitcher.
