Bears 2016 and NOW 2017

Recommended Posts

Definitely been a good off-season so far and things are progressing in the right direction. But just for fun...

 

Does 1 of those 5 picks go to a QB? If so, which round would you be happy seeing a QB taken?

 

Or...how would you feel about trying to put together a package (let's say a 3 and 4) and trying to get Mike Glennon out of Tampa Bay? the asking price seems to be a 2nd rounder, but that's too high for the Bears to spend IMO but with the lack of real quality in the draft I wouldn't mind seeing a 3rd and the extra 4th given up for a cheap QB with experience like Glennon for a 1-year trial

I would invest a 3rd-5th round on QB, if you hit you hit, if you don't you don't, but I wouldn't be objectable to resigning #6 at the end of the year if he continues with Loggins way he was with Gase

For the second straight day, Bears continue to add depth to their offensive line by picking up free agent Ted Larsen, who has started 57 games in 6 seasons at 3 different positions. Yesterday it was Manny Ramirez. 1 yr. contracts for not a lot of $$. I like it.

couldn't agree more Bob, very prudent deals and creates incredible depth and flexibility inside G/C/G

Should the Bears make a play for Josh Norman?

seems to be to "boisterous" for my liking, but is he one of those "scheme" corners?  Panthers are 4-3 squad, Bears now are full on 3-4, but he can play some, no doubt, but seems like from the peripheral he comes with some baggage

There are a lot of pretty good corners toting around "baggage," like Patrick Peterson, Richard Sherman, even going back to Neon Deion. All is forgiven ... if they can play.

yea, but we took last year to clean up from that culture, so they might be not so willing to potentially bring another one back in, but I get what you are saying 100% and it is true, me personally, I say pass but I would be gladly wrong if they sign him and he is an All Pro

I believe Bears did a nice job addressing many defensive positions to create competition but more importantly better athletes to fill out our special teams rosters which was a major disaster in our coverage units as a whole.  

 

Like Hoyer signing as well, confident in his skill set if pressed into duty.  Gives them 1 more year to develop Fales to keep/trade or dump at years end

I've got to say I'm impressed with the way Pace has pretty much done a complete overhaul of the roster in just a couple of years. They've gotten a lot younger and a lot more athletic. Now let's see if that translates to wins on the field.

absolutely agree

 

Some radio chatter throughout the day saying Long maybe on the move to LT, not sure I am in on that.

I would say Long to LT is now a definite no go with cutting of Slaussen and another good cut of Rolle.   Saves well over 2 Million by cutting Rolle.  Just cut 2 of our oldest players.  Thumbs Up from this guy

Read an article today ranking the playing careers of each NFL head coach from 1 to 32 and I came across these Spicoli-esque photos of John Fox. They're pure awesomeness.

I realize it's just a preseason game, but 22 - 0?  Didn't watch the game, but most teams score at least one time even with the 3rd stringers playing.  Whether he played or not, is this Cutler's last year in Chicago?  Just curious how the Bears fans feel about that.  He's never been a great quarterback in the league and maybe it's because he has been on the wrong team.  I expected a LOT more out of him coming out of college.  Seems to me he is just an average type QB.  Maybe I'm wrong but that is how his performance seems to me.

Didn't watch the game, but give really 2 hoots about anything pre season wise.  

Jay Cutler in this current NFL landscape is Top 15 QB:  Not Top 5, but in the 2nd/3rd tiers.   There are some Bad QBs out there my friends.

Cutler looked very good and comfortable last night in his 2 drives.  Run game too.  Obviously I know Pats didn't have a full D unit out there, but execution was good, hated the 2 big penalties that hurt momentum, but needless to say when motivated, Alshon looked all that and then some.

Bears lock up Long, that will work!!  

Hopefully this new guy from Packers still has 2 years left........

Lets roll.......

If Sitton continues his pattern over the last few seasons, he could go another 15 years :)

 

signing linemen that have been released is a VERY high risk chance.

talked to a good friend of mine who is a huge packer fan.  He said he had the injury last year, but felt like he was a guy that had 3-4 years left easily, he said that Packers have to pay 4 lineman next year, so someone had to go at some point and their only option was to release him since no trade candidates stepped forward.

With reluctance, I have finally come to the conclusion that the Bears need to move on from Jay Cutler. Jay is an NFL quarterback, but it is crystal clear that he's not going to change - he is what he is. And what he is is a guy with a golden arm, but is so driven to make a play, and has so much confidence in his arm, that he is, quite simply, a turnover machine. And you can't be giving the opponent extra possessions and/or a short field in today's offensive NFL. I'm not suggesting he should be benched - Brian Hoyer is not an answer. Barring a miraculous turnaround, they're not going anywhere this year. Time to draft a QB, or trade for a young one you think you can develop. I think Jay has, in part, gotten a bad rap. He has also been unlucky in terms of offensive coordinators. But that's the breaks in the big leagues.
