Re: Bears officially submit bid for Arlington

Look at the value of the franchise when he took over to what it is worth today. That is the way to judge Phillips' proficiency....not wins and loses.

Re: Bears officially submit bid for Arlington

$125 x 20,000 more seats x 8 = $20,000,000 a year in NFL ticket sales alone. Not to mention parking, concessions, souvenirs. Those are also nosebleed prices, where the bulk of the extra seats will go. But it will be compounded if you make additions to club seats and suites, which I am sure will happ...

Re: Questions about LB Corps

Trevathan looked fat and out of shape during camp last year. I noticed he looks slimmer in the pictures I have seen from camp of him this year. Hopefully he plays like the end of season Danny T instead of the first half Danny T in 2021.

Re: Dan Patrick: Tom Brady was nearly a Bear

Most have speculated he was talking about Jimmy G and San Fran. Kind of hard to hear a team would rather stick with your former pine riding back up than you.

Re: Nagy optimism

A QB that misses open receivers, either with his eyes or the pass, is going to make any coach look bad. I do fault Nagy for giving Coward as much time as he did, but most of the wasted yards on this team the last 3 years fall squarely on #10's shoulders.

If Butt is healthy he should make the roster. Pennel has a chance if Tonga shows nothing and ends up on the practice squad. Do not see Wheatley making the roster or practice squad.

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 sti...

Fact is no QB is ever ready for their first start, does not matter if he is a rookie or a 5 year back up. As long as Fields first start is not a do or die situation I am good with it. He should either start week 18 because the Bears are resting their starters or whenever they get mathematically elim...

Re: If we can't trade Foles, what about a Dalton cut/trade

It looks like he has 2 void years https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/chicago-bears/andy-dalton-7750/ so his signing bonus is a $2.5 million hit in 22 and 23. So I think if we cut or traded him half would hit this year and half next year. So basically the salary we shed would be close to a wash depending o...

Re: If we can't trade Foles, what about a Dalton cut/trade

Not quite true either, the Bears would save the $2.5 base if they trade him. It is past June 1st so the big part of the bonus will hit next year regardless of what happens with Dalton.

No...the Bears gave Dalton a $7.5M signing bonus. They are going to pay $2.5M of that this year and $5M next year whether or not Dalton is on the Bears. His new team would only have to pay his $2.5M base salary in a trade.

Re: $30MM more in Fun Money for '22

Don't get too excited, the Bears already have about $10M in dead cap hits for next year because of Leno, Dalton, Tashaun Gibson, and Damien Williams. The latter three have void years on a one year deal so they will count over $6M next year even though they only signed for one year. Pace really needs...

Re: Bears WR Discussion

Give ARob a 4 year $85M contract about half guaranteed. That contract will expire the same time as Fields rookie deal and ARob will be 32. Structure so his cap hit is the same this year and cheap next year so you can fill in any holes.
