Re: Middleguard's awards for the 21-22 season

Middleguard. Thank you for all of the hard work. This post was pure gold! SHIT!!!

Personally I think Carr is a crappy QB, and is terribly inconsistent. Additionally Mark Davis is the real life embodiment of Lloyd Christmas. Oh, and their star WR is facing 25 to life. Not sure why that is an attractive job.

Re: Chicago Bears fire HC Matt Nagy & GM Ryan Pace

Rumor has is that Harbaugh called the bears last year asking if there would be an opening. I don't know who he talked to, but I can see Pace having survived if he had a new (and better) collaborator. After hiring that coach from ND a couple days ago, I don't think Harbaugh is going anywhere. That w...

Is there a chance he comes back now that Nagy is gone? I'd prefer he move on. No. That bridge has been burned, and I wouldn't want him back anyway. Any player that mails it in that badly because he's disgruntled can go fuck off. (PS I love pissing on Nagy's grave too, but Robinson thumbed his nose ...

Re: Chicago Bears fire HC Matt Nagy & GM Ryan Pace

Nagy not thanking the fans upon his departure says a lot about his character. How you act in moments like that helps to define the type of person you are. I don't care if he did it or not, I'm just saying it says a lot about him.
