    Last night vs OKC was an embarrassing W but it's still a W. OKC turned the defensive intensity up to 10 and the Bulls had no response, their offense would just freeze up under full court press and traps the way the Thibodeau/Rose offenses used to do. Their normal lineup with Ball-Lavine-DeRozan-whoever the 4 is that day-Vucevic probably could've handled that.

    3-5 years is a long time in terms of NFL roster management If Justin Fields pans out as a franchise QB the window to competitiveness is even shorter

    Kinda hard to say though isn't it? Because in that counterfactual you would have John Fox and then Matt Nagy (presumably, assuming Fox is still fired after 2017) sabotaging developing Mahomes and then Trubisky (presumably) developing under Reid, not saying Trubisky would've become a great QB but with Reid the results would've almost certainly been different.

    I kind of detached myself from the process for my own sanity but Poles was the name I liked the most. (not that I know shit. I'm just some guy. stop listening to me.) I am not gonna shill for the guy just because the Bears hired him but I'm also not gonna get bent out of shape just because he has a superficial resemblance to Ryan Pace's resume (as I've seen some others doing in the past week)

    FS: 2021-2022 International Preview

    Apologies if this has been answered/addressed already but how is it the Sox can do signings through the work stoppage (the fact that these deals were already agreed to notwithstanding)? Is there some different rule set for international players?

    I've lost track of the players Pace traded up to draft who ended up being busts* -At the time, I had far less of a problem with them drafting Trubisky (even though I wanted Watson) than the draft capital that was wasted to pick him. The Bears were in a position where it should've been impossible to fuck that up and still found a way. I've complained about this a million times, so have others, I'm still not over how stupid it was. *In the spirit of fairness I won't count the Fields or Mack trades against him, even though it's going to sting not having a first round pick *again*

    The most common defense of Ryan Pace is that he drafts well. That's debatable but let's just go ahead and grant that as true. Now look at the current construction of the Bears' roster from top to bottom and see how abysmal it is, and that's pretty indefensible. In 2018 they had the best front 7 and the best secondary in the league, those days are long gone and now the defense is a shell of its former self. Every team every year loses guys to free agency/salary cap, injuries, retirement, etc. and if you can't replace talent at at least the rate you're losing it, you're simply not good at your job. Pace has objectively failed at this, and whatever he does right he cancels out by wasting resources.

    Those look more like timing issues than accuracy issues. He can make the throws, but he's not in sync with his WRs, good thing Andy Dalton got all the reps with the ones in camp this summer I guess. (And it doesn't help matters that Allen Robinson is not even trying)

    Is there a more universally-disliked combo than Collinsworth on literally any game Rodgers plays? Collinsworth seriously gets carried away in ways that no other commentator does, and he seems to forget that he's talking about a quarterback, and not a Nobel laureate, Medal of Honor recipient, or Humanitarian of the Year or something.

    On that pick-6 he stared down Mooney (or whoever it was) harder than a freshly-released convict at a strip club.

    Anyone remember those football tables from the 70s/80s where you'd line up the toy football players, turn the power on, and the vibration of the table would have the players moving in random directions? This is roughly equivalent to watching the Bears offense.

    This Bears-Nagy situation is messy and unprofessional. If you're gonna fire the guy, then just do it. If you're not, say you're not, and that you're focused on the season. But don't do this amateur hour shit where you make him squirm in a press conference and pretend you're not.

    The Bears aren't a laughingstock like the Lions or the Browns, they are a perpetually mediocre team that accidentally stumbles into respectability like every 5 years
