    NFL overtime should be the same as college but you start at your own 25. How there is was no squib kick is just bad football management. The Bears hiring process seems to be going as how most pessimists would have thought - f'd up- the HC listing is down to three candidates. The HC candidate listing should be fluid until the GM is hired. The Bears continue to be a shitshow of epic proportion. How could you watch the Bills/KC game and think the Bills DC is the answer....oh right he was a Bear. 4 of the 5 people on the "search" committee have zero experience (Campbell and the internal VP) or proven ability (Ted and George) to be in the room to make the decisions yet there they are.

    The amazing part of the Blackhawks is that Kane and Toews are still around and the team is as irrelevant as ever. The scandal was the final blow but they were quickly sliding that way. The careers of Kane and Toews are sadly going to end where they will put in as many years after winning as they did prior to and winning.

    That Hilton has dropped off I would not stay there. You may want to avoid Midpointe apartments as well. I assume you know where those are at and this story should not surprise you.

    The history of doing this same process makes it a failed one. What ahs been added to the process that significantly increases it? George is the final decision maker not the other four in the room. George has done nothing to show that his decision making is not a failed one. This is the same process that placed John Fox under Ryan Pace. If they like Leslie Frazier this is the process that will place a coach under a GM because the GM wants the job more than wanting the control to pick their guy. George wants a good guy that likes him and as such may not end up with the best candidate. The 3 in the room could be great but with Ted and George, 40% of those in the room are failures....that 40% has made the decisions previously.

    Why are they even interviewing head coaches prior to hiring a GM? George is still being eviscerated in the media in regard to his press conference. The guy had zero experience and was handed the organization and continually fails. Now he has been doing it long enough to think he knows what he is talking about......yet he states he is not a football guy......Polian should have been hired to just be a figure head and we should never EVER hear from George again. This is the same failed process as they have tried before. Maybe it works but my guess is it will not as they go with the person that they like the most, not the best for the job.

    I am not against Harbaugh but shouldn't he have better results at Michigan to be given what people want to give him? Is the Big Ten that good that he averages 3.5 losses a season and went 2-4 in the short 2020 season. He is 1-5 in Bowl games. I wouldn't mind him but I do not think they should jump through a lot of hoops to get him.

    He tied his wagon a few times to a too to many of the wrong horses. Maybe Fields works out but until we know for sure, too many failed attempts at QB and head coach. Comparatively speaking how is Pace at late round drafting v other teams? He appears to fail often on early round drafting.

    Their offense changed when they could run out the clock. They just ran two very safe plays. I do not think they were taking a knee but most likely a safe run that would keep the clock going. After the Charger timeout they had to go for the first down as the Chargers could call timeout after 3rd down and get the ball back. Why the Chargers called the time out is baffling. Was there any explanation? Great news on the Bears as while Pace had done some decent things, they were not enough to beleive the foundation was there. On the NBC football wrap up there was a great dialogue about Pace and the Halas Hall renovation. Kruetz said it best, all he had to do was go to OSU and tell an architect, I want that. For some reason the Bears made it sound like it was revolutionary while it is just what every other team has. Kudos to the architect not Ryan Pace. Phillips will stick around in some capacity if Arlington Heights is real.

    I think Jenkins went out in the first quarter. The television production of that game and announcing was embarrassing. I am not a huge Allen Robinson fan. Maybe the system made him look bad but always seemed more like a TE than a receiver to me.

    With the heat on MLB owners in regard to the working conditions of minor league players I doubt this will happen.

    They do not need to sell the team. They just need a create a structure that can win games. A McCaskey does not need to be the CEO, hell let Phillips be the CEO and hire an actual football guy to be the President. Do that I do not mind letting Pace hang around under the new President.
