Re: Ed Oliver Rumors

Am I the only person who is actively rooting for this? Ok well I’m actively rooting for this. We don’t need $40m and 10 rookies. Get some good players now. Go into the draft with a good plan for all of your key positions.

Re: Nobody cares about Corners, but...

If there’s a starting-quality RT on the roster (either a FA or if they believe in Jenkins) on draft day it certainly changes the math.

Re: Nobody cares about Corners, but...

I disagree with the premise that DL is deep in this draft for what we need. There just aren't many penetrating guys. This is really a better draft for 3-4 teams who just want big slow pluggers on the inside and 250 pound edge rushers on the outside. As for CB, there are more available in FA now and ...

Re: Free Agency Waves

To me a sure sigh of wave 3 is the 1 year deals. Multi year deals are gonna be pretty few and far between from here on out. That's a sign it's wave 3, for sure. I'm looking at the roster and I see most position groups already have their "camp body" types already filled. As I understand it...

Re: 2023 Draft Sims

You guys are thinking that Keanu Benton is a 1T not a 3T? Yeah. Played both, but really seems a lot more of a 1. What’s his role: Versatile DT Benton has split his time almost evenly between the A- (698 snaps) and B-gap (612) over the course of his career. He can easily fill the same role in the NF...

Re: Nobody cares about Corners, but...

I think the Beats would have to seriously consider Gonzalez or Witherspoon if they’re at 9. Gonzalez is bigger and Witherspoon has more ball production so choose your flavor

As for the mid rounds

Re: DL Reconstruction…so far

Working my way through too many mock draft simulations has helped me realize that there are only a few DTs and a few OTs I'm happy with. There are plenty of guys at every other position but for these two its risky to wait for #61. I would take multiple mid-round swings on EDGE to go with my 1st or 2...

Two points: 1) Yes, teams jump from last to first all the time in the NFL. That's not an unrealistic objective to have at all. 2) See my prior post for the actual point being made.

Re: CJ Gardner-Johnson still available

I like the player and think he has the ability to play NB with Gordon moving to CB2. It's hard to say where he fits in the safety market. There are good players getting $5m and others getting $16m APY. One thing we know about Poles is he has a number and he won't budge so I guess we'll just see what...

Not discussed here is that the Bears are (in a way) kneecapping the Panthers by signing FAs they maybe wanted to re-sign.

Re: Foreman to Bears

I really like this signing. He’s got juice and he’s a punishing runner.

I think both he and Homer are adequate pass catchers. I think though that the screen game will run through the WRs and the checkdowns will be to TEs.

Re: Whitehair starting C for 2023 Bears?

I'm in full cynic mode at this point: If he pretends that the players all fit and/or can shuffle around on his team he doesn't tip his hand in the draft or lose leverage in negotiations for contracts and trades.

You don't think Poles has a constant running depth chart somewhere? It's a current snap shot only of course, but it's informative. And then we compare that to what's actually left in FA and it's more informative. This is EXACTLY what happened last offseason re: OL. I kept calling out that we weren'...

Re: Free Agency- Give me 4 names

I heard Rick Spielman (former Vikings GM) say the weekend after FA starts is when you get guys who were testing the market, so I think I agree with wab that it will be re-signings rather than new signings. Considering how bad the Bears were last year, that will mean the weekend additions are backups...
