I do think the Bears have the best 2 kickers remaining on the team. Fry kicked well in the recently failed AAF league and Piniero looked like he had the inside track to being the Raiders kicker before he got hurt.

Robbie Gould is still holding out in S.F. He might be available for a trade this year or as a free agent next year.

Neither one will be the Bears kicker. They will grab a veteran that gets cut.

I mean, his whole complaint is stemming from a problem HE created...it was his (and Pace's) decision to cut Gould, and start this circus we're currently in...Even with a shitty kicker, the Bears still won 12 games (and probably would've won a couple more had they had a more reliable kicker). Nagy is just two wins shy of Fox's TOTAL wins for the Bears over 3 seasons...so yeah, I'm not really taking Fox's opinion too seriously.

Gould signed a 4 year deal with the Niners, with $10M guaranteed.

At least Chicagoans can finally stop thinking we were somehow going to "get" Gould back (never was going to happen)

Haha Clinton-Dix injured himself at the end of OTA's, starting off camp on the PUP list

My brother went to Bears practice. I was going to go but had to wait for roofing material to be delivered to the house. He said Mitch looked like the same old Mitch as last year. Sailing the ball to wide open receivers, not setting his feet and not accurate at all. He said if you didnt know better, you would have thought Chase Daniel was the starter, lol. He said Daniel looked a lot better than Mitch

Regarding the defense. He said Pagano had them running that shit where he would send 4-5 guys from the LB and secondary to rush the QB and have the down lineman drop in to pass coverage. He said it did not work one time against the offense.

Yeah, that lineman drop back play resulted in a TD pass.

It's an interesting concept to have a D lineman cover the middle of the field about 5 yds. deep. That's where most QBs like to go when they're getting pressure. Looks like the Bears need more practice at it.

Also, Trubisky is playing against the 1s. Khalil and Floyd are creating some havoc in the backfield. The tackles are having a difficult time against them. Hopefully, the tackles will learn by going against great talent and be better against lesser OLBs.

Listening to one of the Bears beat reporters a few min ago. Live tackling today, Bears starting offense vs 2nd string defense. Mitch thru 3 picks and looked very inconsistent per the beat reporter.

Will wait for [MENTION=4746]Flyn[/MENTION]n excuse, lol

Trubisky just needs to be serviceable, if the defense can repeat what they did last year.

That worked out really well last year. Defense is still going to be great. But will more than likely take a small step back. Pagano cant scheme as well as Fangio

What I heard is Trubisky is accurate some of the time and not accurate other times. Good thing he gets training camp/preseason to improve.

Disappointingly, I have heard that WR Anthony Miller has seemed average so far.

Wims and Marvin Hall have been looking good in camp. Wims has good body control besides being a smart player and Hall is outrunning the DBs. Riley Ridley is injured and not practicing so Wims and Hall are getting a lot of work.

So that would be called inconsistent?
Had training camp/preseason last year on top of 16 games to improve and still hasnt from reports coming out of camp. He is going to be average at best as a bunch of us have been saying since he was drafted.

They are raving about Wims again, but he showed out in pre-season last year and barely played during the regular season. Training camp/preseason are 2 different animals

I'm still saying Anthony Miller is going to be the real deal

It's all speculation until the real games begin. I'm expecting (not just hoping) the Bears will make the playoffs. After that, we'll see, They have the components in place to be a SuperBowl team. It's tempting to put $100 on them at 14-1.

Hopefully they blow chunks to get the Raiders a better pick. :s00ls:
So if the Bears do something super bad, like cheating scandal or whatever, and lose their first round pick, does that mean the Raiders lose their pick?
