'''NFL Thread '2019-'2020 THIS IS ''''THE BEARS' YEAR!

Recommended Posts

I think trading Howard is absolutely the right thing to do, it's addition by subtraction. More of Davis/Cohen/rookie RB in Nagy's offense and less of Howard is going to make this offense better.

That said. I think you could have held out for a better pick by trading him later, i.e. before start of camp, especially it's for a 2020 pick only.

I'm hoping the bears have this guy on their radar, he can do it all

If Howard wasnt traded, it was entirely possible he got cut before the season started. It was a bad fit from day one. The Bears got a draft pick, Howard found a team that wanted him, everyone is happy. Until Howard runs for 200 against the Bears this year. #revengegame

There were certainly ways bears could have used Howard better but it's clear Nagy liked other players better for those roles.

Felt like Carlos Boozer on offense, didn't really fit but they would still try and force feed 15 post-ups every game to keep him in the game.

Also just don't fall in love with runningbacks. This pick can be used to move up to get the guy they want in this draft. We'll have them for 3 years then trade them.

The problem is being spoiled with dudes like Matt Forte, then wanting another one.

Yeah but unfortunately Howard was not Forte.

If Duke Johnson is a June 1st cut I think Bears will be on that.

I don't think so. It will be Davis the starter, Cohen #2 and a draftee #3. The forth back, will need to be a special teams player.

Damn, Benny Cunningham signed with the Jaguars.   He wasn't the best running back, but he was one of my favorite players.  Just always seemed to be enjoying the game.

I hope the Bears can find some way to jump up into the top of the 3rd round or bottom of the 2nd for Miles Sanders. I really like that guy. Pace seems to as well, and as we all know he's not afraid of jumping up to get his guy. They have plenty of draft capital next season, as long as they avoid moving either of their 2 2nds I have no problem with them moving up. I don't doubt that the Bears are going to use the Raiders 2nd to move up to the bottom of the 1st round in 2020 as well.

If I remember right, it’s been confirmed he’s visited Halas at least twice. 

I think if a guy they like is still there in the high 3rd round, they may try and get their guy. I think RB is going to be priority No. 1 for them.

Yes, exactly. They'd have to time it just right. Sanders might not make it out of the 2nd round, but you never know with RBs.

Hadn't seen anyone post the Packers BR story yet. As someone who still thinks Rodgers is the greatest QB I've ever watched, its interesting to read some behind the scenes, cause they definitely should have won more than one Super Bowl.

Aaron Rodgers said today he played last season with a Tibial Plateau Fracture and sprained MCL for almost the whole season.

I could really care less what Greg Jennings and J Finley have to say about him not being a leader.

He really isn't and neither is Ben Roethlisberger. But they can play.

I think the whole "leader" thing is way overrated, but why would you say he isn't?

Honestly, if I were a Packers fan, I would hate that. It was clear that he wasn't himself last year and playing through such a serious injury can be detrimental in a lot of ways

Yeah, it definitely explains the amount of throw aways he had. 

I do think some of it could also be that he didn't trust the offense and some of the young players around him.

I expect a big bounce back this year.  Wouldn't be surprised if he threw 10-15 more TD this year.

I read somewhere that the Week 7 one might be wrong. Not that it really matters, since we'll find out tomorrow
