Man I wish you would post those vids cause not that I don't like him I think he has the potential but I'm like you earlier and see him as a 3rd back. I'm in the boat that they will move up in second to get Sanders (God I hope so he just has that it factor) and Davis will be a short yardage type guy or see which RB coming off an injury drops and throw them in the 3rd spot for as long as Davis can hold them off and they're completely healthy. The money they threw at Davis is on the low end starter level but when Pace has said in the past he's going to fix a position he usually goes all out. I just have not seen video on Davis that screams starter at this point I firmly believe that's his biggest concern next to kicker...

I've been wrong in the past though lol...

That's probably the best summary of his style as a runner... has some quickness, sharp jump cut to make a defender miss, decent burst and power behind his pads when he lowers his head.

Was a good vid. Seen some of those plays in other vids but there were some that were new and yeah he definitely has potential. You can't say he doesn't like contact because he definitely will lower a shoulder and I like that. He's a little quicker than Howard and has more lateral movement. I still want Sanders badly but we could do a lot worse than Davis.

Some names to keep an eye on, as we still need depth at edge....

Since we’re nothing if not thorough. I’m assuming a minimum deal.

You guys read THIS?

Honestly, I don't think I've seen this in my lifetime other than maybe a year or two under Lovie. It's amazing what a great coaching staff can do to a franchise. All the years wasted with mediocre guys where all us fans always knew what it would take but it never registered with the team until now.

All the years of being the guy at the bar that everyone consoles starting week 6... "There's always next year" LOL. Man it's great we have a coaching staff and head coach that makes players want to play here. We can become the next Patriots with that type of magnetism they've had for what a decade now. Add in the fun factor of Nagy and the new training facility this team will be a destination for players for a while!

It's a good time to be a Bear fan!

Looks like Bryce Callahan is visiting the Broncos today. Really curious if Callahan's medicals scared off Pace much like Cam Meredith did last year.

The Bears are currently getting a 4th round comp pick next year (subject to change)
