I kind of wonder... maybe the plan is to let Howard and Davis battle it out for RB1 responsibilities, Patterson comes in as a joker, Cohen stays in the Cohen role, and then we draft someone like Bryce Love (ACL surgery December 18th) in the 5th round (assuming his medicals are clean). Let him rehab and unleash him in 2020.

Boners shouldn't be killed, all boners lives matter.


Just saw this and I wondered aloud: Do all boners deserve to be beaten?

I feel the bears are stuck in limbo in two positions, RB and TE. I’m not sure what the plan of attack is for the running back position but I’ve come to the conclusion just when you think you know what Nagy is looking for in a back, he flips the script. There were a few backs on the market that were prototypical of what the talking heads say what Nagy is looking for. They’re young and one such as Coleman went for cheap. Yeldon is still on the market and I’m sure will now sign for something around what Davis got. I’m not sure what happens to Howard but I do know he’s always available come game day, that can’t be said for Davis.

What Pace has done has been incredibly. I’m hoping he drafts the back that will set this offense a blaze and we won’t have to worry about the running back position for a few years. Now if he can only hit some magic on a TE the bears offense would be unstoppable.

RE: TE - I was surprised to learn that Burton had a career year with the Bears in 2018. Shocked. I thought he was a total let down, but his numbers were career bests. I don't know if I was expecting a Travis Kelce type impact and that's why I felt disappointed, but his numbers say he progressed considerably and may not have been as bad as I thought.

And I know you aren't a Davis fan for whatever reason, but he was active for 15 games last season. So he was available.

Regarding Burton, IMO, he came out hot and kinda fizzled down the stretch. When the bears needed him most, he tightened up against his old team and didn’t play. I don’t know if I’m looking to deep into it but he lost a lot of respect from me. Especially when other guys were playing through injuries. I mean Millers shoulder was popping out and he suited up.

As far as Davis, like I said, I live in Seattle, I’ve seen him up close and weekly heard locally about his injuries.The hawks don’t have a solidified back either and he couldn’t win the starting job, I’m guessing mostly because of availability. I agree with you, he does have talent but I just feel with the bears backfield in limbo, I would choose Howard over Davis 9 times out of 10. If they offload Howard, which good chances they will, I don’t feel at all confident with Davis as RB1. If he’s the 3rd back, fine, but doesn’t that say they overpaid for a 3rd back? I’m just hoping Pace hits on a back and we can put this to bed. If I’m wrong on Davis, I have no problems admitting it, is was way wrong on E.Jack, thank goodness!

The whole interview Burton gave about his mysterious injury seemed totally concocted to me. His description of what happened and how he described that it just comes out of the blue (paraphrasing) just didn't explain it to me. It was the way he spoke about it it just seemed like it was all made up. It was his old team and maybe he made a few enemies there and just freaked out or the pressure was way too much (shouldn't be a starter then). There's no other explanation other than he really was injured but like I said it just smelled fishy.

I thought he played pretty good here and there. He has the potential to be a good TE for us. But, even reporters were talking about how weird the injury was.

It will be interesting to see if they draft a TE...

Honestly the whole move TE thing interests me. I think you can get players with those attributes at other positions like WR, RB, FB. Like personally Wims to me should be tried there. Last we saw him he looked thick, had body type and ability to excel there.

beats me :banana:


I have warmed up to him after watching multiple high light videos. If Howard is going to be gone, I am guessing he will be a draft day trade. I just hope a desperate team gives us some value. At this point a 3rd would be the most likely highest upside we can hope for unless there is a player that Pace covets instead. lol almost pointless to speculate with how secretive and unpredictable Pace is.
