[RichH] That MF holds onto the ball too long [/RichH]
If Rich gives you shit, I don't want to hear about how he's instigating.
No, no - We are all good here

I take these in the good spirits they were offered

Its not like he mocked my fantasy team - Then I would have to slap him with a glove as honor demands:)

Ditka and I are on very good terms

Um, Leonard Floyd's record as a Bear vs the Packers included:

2016 (Week 7): 2 sacks plus a QB hit, 1 FF, 1 FR, 1 TD
2017 (Week 4): 1 sack
2017 (Week 10): 0.5 sack plus a QB hit
2018 (Week 15): 2 sacks
2019 (Week 1): 2 sacks

That's 7.5 sacks in the 8 games he played against the Packers. Bear in mind too that he totalled 18.5 sacks in 4 seasons in Chicago, so over 40% of them came against Green Bay. I can't say for sure if they were all on Rodgers, but Floyd certainly did a good job hitting the Green Bay QB.

Wow, he was like a guided missle against Rodgers, amazing.

39 years old, long recovery time, have we seen the last of him? Riding off into the sunset?

Many NY Giants died to provide that information to destroy the Death Star.

I think Rodgers was leaning the right way last year when he was thinking of retiring. Now he will have to hobble off into the sunset instead of strut.
A new Era begins in the NFC North!

Sadly, it does not involve the Bears.... :frustrated:

So much for the Bears stomping his ass in the superbole. Another daydream down the tube.
No matter how you try to box him in, whatever realistic scenario you propose to build around him is going to include the fashion aspect(s) of Caleb's dramatic personality.

I can't imagine Rodgers playing until he's 104 years old...

It'll be very interesting - He will get basically a full year away from Football (albeit with painful rehab)

So he can see if that "takes" - or if it shows to hold onto it as long as possible

Fun, well sourced article on the Athletic about the disfunction on the jets offensive side of the ball:

https://theathletic.com/5238599/2024/01 ... -collapse/

Walked away from it with even less confidence in Nathaniel Hackett. A few blurbs from the Athletic's daily email to whet the whistle:

The entire Rodgers-ification of the organization produced intense workplace dysfunction, particularly among coaches. Head coach Robert Saleh turned Rodgers’ absence into a rationalization. No one wins when their star quarterback gets hurt. It was justification for bad results.

For offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, it was worse. In Rodgers, he had a “frat brother” to conduct his offense, meaning the QB seemed in charge most of the time. Multiple coaches and players described Hackett as “lacking in attention to detail.” Not a great look for the guy coming off of a failed debut as Denver’s head coach.

All the negativity blossomed while Rodgers was away from the team … though he stayed in the conversation plenty thanks to his weekly segments on “The Pat McAfee Show.” Losing hurts, and having your leader critique you from thousands of miles away doesn’t help.

When you read about some of the dysfunction that coaches and front office peeps go through and or bring on themselves in some organizations it just makes you wonder.
I will kill you if you cut me at the knees. You will drink with me when invited and stay til I say so. We only listen to American Music. I make men nervous with just my presence. I expect an apology if you hold. I throw linemen at QB's. Believe the Lore!
