Re: Chicago Bears - CUTLAHHHHH! Eh?

Trubs best throw of the night was the one to arob down 16-15 to get them in FG range, rest of the game was pretty bad, not turning the ball over and losing with this defense just shouldn't happen period. Weird **** all over that game. He just struggles too much when the first designed read isn't there. I don't know how to improve that, feels like one of those you either have it or you don't QB things.

This team just reminds me too much of 2001/2006, a dominant defense, suspect offense, ran hot (nobody important got seriously hurt except Kyle Long for a stretch), and then didn't make the playoffs for years afterward. I hope that's not the case this go around,we might lose Fangio to the broncs. We have no draft picks and might not get a real free agent this offseason, ie, unless Trubs improves we're going backwards even tho the division is definitely still there for the taking with the mediocre vikes, whatever the packers are now, and the lions never change.

It's also added frustration seeing say Mahomes when his college film was better and well now it's definitely better.

Trubs is already too old for the NFL to still be a project, it's put up time. Winston/Mariota are less than a year older. I hope he does, I just don't see it is all. Whatever.

Yup, I have to echo all of that. Mostly the fangio and no major injuries made this the year to get it done. Prob back to 8-8 next year with a mack/hicks/fuller/Howard/trubes injury or something. I'm still butt hurt.

Re: Chicago Bears - CUTLAHHHHH! Eh?

Thirded. That was ****in brutal. A wide open playoff race, I really thought we were gonna make it to the NFC ship at a minimum...

Trubes finally gave me hope that he might be good enough to get us there again.

otoh as Wheat noted we have a 24 year old QB who was only good enough to start 1 ****ing year in college. maybe he'll continue to improve... sigh. he still does too much stupid ****, still gets happy feet and frankly the Eagles inability to catch bailed him out because the narrative could have been very different.

I don't know how the D is situated salary cap wise but they should be just as good next year, praying that we keep Vic.

ldo but next year will tell the tale. let's see how we do against a first place schedule. I'm guessing Nagy won't ever turtle again like he did in the first half. We also need to figure out how to use Jordan Howard... or we could just nakedly copy NO. yeah, that would be sweet

We are going to use Jordan Howard to acquire a middle round draft pick.

.
Watson was our guy as the third pick. That is who you have to compare Trubs to. And I think Watson is still ahead. Mahomes only was a great pick because he went to Andy Reid.

Trubisky missed two games, Mack missed two games. Long actually cost them early in that game with his inability to even slow down Fletcher Cox. They were better against Donald without him.

Love Fangio, he deserves a HC gig. But this defense has a ton of talent it is not all scheme based. As long as they find a a good guy that doesn't try and shoehorn guys into bad spots they will be fine. I think I trust Nagy to pull that off.

Really hurts that they get the Eagles there. Happiest team after that game had to be the Rams. Their Super Bowl equity went through the roof with that Eagles win.

Nagy as a play caller spent a lot of time protecting this team from turning the ball over and tried to put other teams in a position where they had to go a long field against the Bears D and it took away some of the early season aggressiveness. That I think cost them against an Eagles team that struggled on defense if you aggressively attack them down field.

I still feel pretty confident in this team. Nagy is a good coach and that is half the battle in the NFL. They still have almost everyone you want under contract and they are a fairly young team on the average.

I'm sure Prince George will find a way to get his panties in a bunch over something and blow this up at some point.
