Re: Vildor Shining Early

I really liked Graham, and never understood how they let him go. Sure Tillman and Jennings were locked in, and DJ Moore was pretty good. But the DB depth at that time wasn't great. I always kind of wondered if he just wasn't a Lovie guy - Lovie absolutely had his favorites. Graham had a great caree...

Gained weight here as well since my only exercise of walking to my car in the morning, and then walking from the parking garage to the office went away. I really should start to exercise . . .

Re: Bears officially submit bid for Arlington

I keep reading how the Bear ownership is not able to leverage money. I am certain over the years they have a very well diversified portfolio. This is NOT some penniless family..think how much they made on all things owned..endorsed or otherwise secured. I didn't check their REAL net worth..but as a...

Re: Bears officially submit bid for Arlington

The lease runs through 2033, but it would take about 5 years to design and build the stadium. So really the Bears would only have to buy out 5-6 years of the current lease. Also, from reading the interwebs the lease is only $6.3M per year. So the Bears could conceivably keep paying the lease and st...

Great post, @The Marshall Plan. Personally, Mitch is no longer with the team so I'm not going to go out of my way to read about him or post about him. Like I said when it was apparent he was no longer going to be with the Bears, I wish him the best but talking about him going forward is just moot.

I think fields wins the starting role in camp and we go from there. Game one starter. The rest is history. I think whether this happens comes down to the whole belief that a newly drafted QB needs to be "seasoned" for at least a year before seeing the field. I used to be a believer of thi...

Re: Question: Why so many teams passed

I wonder where the epilepsy thing came from anyway. I believe Fields only commented on it after it got out but I can't find who broke the news in the first place. Seems like a HIPAA violation to me but I'm not in the medical field so I really have no idea if that applies in this scenario.

Not being a baseball fan, does this happen often? In football, even in blowouts, it's not until those final snaps when they're running out the clock does the offense take it easy.
