    Welcome Back!

    Exciting to see that ST is keeping up with the times so everyone can go another decade strong talking Sox and everything else together. Lets get this season started!

    Pretty good read on Trubisky here. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/mitchell...hise-saving-qb/ Precision, arm talent, timing Trubisky's accuracy and precision immediately jumps out. According to Cian Fahey, who tracks advanced statistics for an annual quarterback catalogue, Trubisky finished as the fifth-most accurate quarterback after adjusting for depth.

    Esteban Loaiza arrested (Drug Kingpin?)

    Is he really a kingpin or is he more of a mule?

    Esteban Loaiza arrested (Drug Kingpin?)

    This is really disappointing.

Plus Niko would give up his bird rights. Ah I see. So then the deal was really far apart when it was first reported as close to done then. f***ing great.
  7. So the Pelicans only wanted him for this year and not for next year? If you like him for this year why not next if you are them?

    I love seeing the obvious athletic ability, nice physique, nice swing, and nice hair...and believe me I love it all...but baseball is so much as mental as it is physical that I have no real opinion on the kid until I see that come through in game action as well. As far as I know he may really suck at actually playing the game of baseball once others mentally attack him.
  9. I honestly believe Hahn is looking for one big FA signing or trade this off season to ease the heavy lifting for next off season. To do EVERYTHING right as you expect to contend is difficult to do.
  10. I dont know, sometimes I feel like the Sox still have that itch to push the gas because they just cant help themselves. LOL

    I know one thing, Pace cannot continue on the same "hit" percentage with his draft picks and FA. He HAS to be better if this is going to come together. If he hits on a a pick and a half and grabs one above average FA its just not going to cut it, no matter what the coaching staff.

    The only thing that worries me is that there is way too much high praise of every hire the Bears have had so far. It cant all be true can it?

    The Bear offense should have no excuse to not be extremely dynamic next season. Not that they are certain to be great but at the very least they should have a dynamic mix and creativity. One would think they will really look to add some playmakers on offense through the draft and FA but they still need parts on D too. As excited as I am about the staff that is being put together they still have a ways to go in building a real contender.

    QUOTE (shipps @ Jan 10, 2018 -> 12:48 PM) Gabriel is going on about how he LOVES the guy as a coach. He talks a lot about how much he loves Toub in the past so I am not sure on this. Very interesting. Okay so Gabriel is saying it is not Toub. LOL
