Re: Goldman a no-show to Bears mandatory minicamp

It is possible he opted out for more than just asthma. If he has some immune deficiency or sickle cell gene he may not be able to be vaccinated. If that is the case, he doesn't have irrational fear and could be legitimately at risk. Let's give the guy a break he might just be wanting that extra tim...

Re: Richard Sherman, anyone?

I think Father Time and injuries caught him as he played very little and graded much lower than his average. 33 year old corner coming off a season he played only 5 games and gave up a 116 QB rating.

Re: Rd 6, P217: Khalil Herbert, RB/KR - Virginia Tech

Last data I found it was 2-3% diff between 20 and 25 yard line starting point and scoring any points. On average right around only 30% of kicks fielded in the end zone result in field position better than the 25 yard of those that are returned. Quite simply it’s against all analytics to return a kic...

Re: Rd 6, P217: Khalil Herbert, RB/KR - Virginia Tech

Hopefully the half of CPatt they are replacing is the stupid returns from 7 yards deep in the endzone and the continual dicking up of the offense when he was in the game. He was coached to do that. He was given the green light to bring it out whenever he wanted, he just proved you couldn’t trust hi...
