    Bears 2016/2017 and Now 2018

    If you still don’t think an elite pass rusher is worth near-QB money go look at the way Blake Bortles carved up the Patriots defense after Trey Flowers got hurt yesterday. If you can’t create pressure with a 4 man rush 99% of QB’s in the league will pick you apart.

    Nagy looked absolutely terrified the later it got and his play calling showed it. That was rough to watch

    Bears looking pretty smart right now

    Bears 2016/2017 and Now 2018

    They really didn’t give up much if you look at the draft picks they sent/received and considering they got a top 5 defensive player in the league, in his prime I think it’s a huge win for the Bears. Still got a QB on rookie contract as well so the $ isn’t much at all in today’s league and in years coming. When you play Rodgers, Stafford, and Cousins twice a year you have to invest in defense and the Bears are building a very talented young group there

    Monrovia @ Linton

    Doesn’t seem to be much to talk about on this one. Hopefully the Miners continue to improve and can pull this one out. What have been some positives from the first 2 games for Linton? We’ve heard about the negatives
  6. Doesn't seem like an excuse to me, just stating that Linton isn't good enough to beat a good Sullivan squad without one of their best players. Now, if we see a post next week blaming the loss on injured players I would call that an excuse For the record, I'll pick the Miners to come out strong and win a close one. Would hurt me too much to pick Sullivan to win, although I think they are the better team lol

    2018 Indianapolis Colts

    I've got the Colts around 7-8 wins if Luck plays the entire season; which I believe he will. He looked good last week and the offense is leaps and bounds ahead of its old ways as far as style and play calling. Thought the linebacker corps showed some really good athleticism and potential, especially when it comes to the passing game. Those guys run well and are pretty solid in space for being so young and inexperienced. The problem with the defense is going to be pass rush, which is going to result in a lot of big plays against them because you can't ask any secondary to cover for as long as the Colts are going to be asked to. Also not sure if the defense has enough size to withstand a full game of inside runs. Definitely need another RB, it seems like Mack is pretty injury prone after the shoulder last season and now the hamstring this early on. Still think he and Turbin and solid guys to have in the group, but another decent runner would be helpful. I don't see Ballard busting out the check book next offseason either from what we've seen and heard this year. Except if Oakland lets Mack hit the market, but I doubt that will happen, I expect them to either resign him or trade him to somewhere that will sign him long term. A lot of pass rush talent in next year's draft with the aforementioned Bosa and also Ed Oliver, who I believe is the next Aaron Donald type player in the league. Not to mention Reshaun Gary, Clelin Ferrell, and Christian Wilkins.
  8. Never said anything about not liking you. Seem like a good guy to me and a good fan that supports your team. Some of your arguments make it seem like you get a little too emotionally invested and some of your information has been proven false, but nothing on here is personal. My post was really just a point of humor directed at all of us talking so much about freshman and JV scores when they really don’t have much bearing on what will happen this season. I get it though, it’s almost season time and we are all ready for it to start and ready to see some ball being played!
  9. Oh Lord, please tell me FC’s youth league doesn’t play against CE’s and I’m not about to read how the 3rd grade highlanders beat the brakes off the 3rd grade olympians 😬
  10. Having a tackle that power cleans 375 to run behind doesn’t hurt! 😳 Gaddis doesn’t claim to be a great X’s and O’s Coach; in fact he probably keeps things simpler and more basic than anybody else in the conference. He is just able to get his kids motivated and to do their job at the best of their ability each play. He also has a very good staff, as mentioned with the S&C program as well as each position group. He is a great coach for that reason alone, let alone the other stuff. He’s built a program and a tradition there and I think most coaches will agree that once you get that built it coaches itself.
  11. Having seen the kid in person twice and a couple more times on video I will say he at the very least will be a high level special teams contributor and a great practice/locker room guy for Notre Dame. At the very least! He is the type of guy that successful teams have on their roster and even if he doesn't play a down of meaningful defensive football in his career (which I wouldn't bet on being the case) he will still be successful there and will excel in whatever role he has and as a student. Out of curiosity, how many 1A level guys have signed scholly's with big time schools like Notre Dame or other power 5 level teams? I know someone mentioned Nick Zachery above, I believe he was a preferred walk-on at IU and didn't play for more than a season or so? Just curious as to how many of these "small school" guys actually get a shot at the big time.
  12. Your best lineman last season was recorded at 5'11 and 240lbs. Can't imagine what 6'4 260 will do for you lol McDonald is going to be really really good
  13. I'll agree that powerlifting doesn't always equate to football success. But when East comes out with 2 TE's, 6 inch line splits, and runs inside zone behind 7 guys that all Bench, Squat, and Clean more than your guys you are in trouble to say the least lol
  14. Are those results posted anywhere? Curious as to how every one did this year
  15. Curious as to why not? I know Floyd is a good program and would like to get already-proven commodities, but would also think this would be a good time to bring in a new viewpoint and maybe some new culture.
