Re: Rodgers & Packers having a falling out

Packers have done Rodgers basically zero favors over his entire career in terms of roster construction. And they still won a Super Bowl with him. When you have a truly great QB - you might still win a Super Bowl even with - but you won't win multiple (Good for us) Something to remember when people t...

Re: Nagy optimism

And Nagy actually did cater the offense to Trubisky in terms of making the reads as simple as possible and eliminating much of the playbook for him. Recall that Allen Robinson mentioned the whole playbook was open with Foles. Does it matter that the playbook that Foles magically opened up - kind of...

Re: Nagy optimism

Mitch was actually pretty good in 2018 Granted - there were people even then concerned it was too much of the legs rather than the arm - and was that sustainable (It was not) But a 71 ESPN QBR? That's a good year. It's not elite - but it's good. That was the only year you could call Mitch good thoug...

Re: Akiem Hicks looks in shape

Contract years are great motivators. But he'll probably be playing elsewhere next year. That may be just fine. The important thing is to get compensation (like a comp R3 for Hicks, hopefully) as often as possible when good players go - unlike with Massie, Leno, and Fuller. All starters, all on big ...

Re: Excited Delirium Over Fields

Mitch said in his first presser with Buffalo that he wanted a place where he’d have a chance to compete for a job, but no one wanted him and it was surprising to him that it went down that way. He took less than Chase Daniel money to play a pure backup role - there’s no sugar coating it. The league...

Re: Who leads the Bears in receiving TDs this year?

Anthony Miller had 7 his first year, but then it stopped. Throw out his high and low and ARob has logged 6,7,6. You can guess pretty well what you're getting there. Mooney had 4, but could rise strongly with competence from the OL and QB. Graham has been all over the place. If Kmet takes a lot of h...

Trey Lance was the biggest blunder of the draft. Can't believe the Niners gave up three first rounders for him. I would have NOT been at all happy if we had traded up to #11 for Lance. The guy has almost no experience, and what he does have, he had in basically a high school offense. I can't wait t...
