Bears win the draft.

1. Justin Fields. Greatest QB in history.
2. Teven Jenkins. Roadgrader who wants to take out 2 guys on each play.
5. Larry Borom. Last season versus Alabama: 44 pass blocking snaps 0 sacks allowed 0 hits allowed 0 hurries allowed
6. Khalil Herbert. RB with great vision and moves AND a kick returner.
6. Dazz Newsome. Kid looks like a pretty good receiver.
6. Thomas Graham Jr. Ball hawking CB who gets the INTs.
7. Khyiris Tonga, DT. No idea how good he is but what a name.

$6 mil cap hit for letting Leno go now compared to $0 hit if they waited until next year. They really want him gone.

Anyone going to miss the flying airballs Leno gave us?

How different would the last few years be if the Bears had followed my repeated calls to draft OTs high? It's all about the lines, 'bout the lines, 'bout the lines.

I still can't believe it. After years of What? early picks, Pace finally comes through with a couple of great ones in the first two rounds.
Ryan Pace can’t draft worth shit. He should have been canned. Odds are that our “new” QB will follow a long line of either shit drafts or trades.

We shall see. No guarantees with first round QBs. Wait. One guarantee. Pace guaranteed his job for another year or two until we see how Fields does. If Fields flops, Pace is 0-2 and gonzo.

I'm not knocking the kid.

But we've been through this. We made the trade for Cutler. All Bears fans went nuts (I did!). Cutler didn't get the job done. The fiasco with Tricky-biscuits, we traded the house to get him. Look what happened. And now here we are with FIelds. I hope the 3rd time is a charm. But I'll hold my breath...
Cutler could have been a great Bears QB. The Bears front office couldn’t put together a decent offensive line though and we never saw his full potential. The guy often got pummeled out there.

I think Teven Jenkins can be a GOOD OT. Some people are saying he could be a HOF Guard. With the Bears needs, I'll take good OT and hope for greatness. Bears are loaded at RB now so RUN THE FOOTBALL (kudos to Doug Buffone)

Yea, no.....

Cutler could of never been a great QB because the guy has rocks for a brain. He sucked with the Broncos, sucked with the Bears, and sucked with Miami. He had some solid seasons of protection and still played like shit, it's not like he spend his entire career, with 3 different teams, without a decent OL.

Sorry, forgot you responded.

Cutler was a big arm with no brains... I'm not discounting the issue you mentioned as that was true. But time and time again, especially in crunch time, when he was trying to force balls in to holes that weren't there, he was absolutely predictable and it always cost us with an INT at the worst times. I seem to recall that defensive players said "all we gotta do is read his eyes... He doesn't disguise his intentions at all..."

I’ll reply to both of you with the same comment. Cutler had the talent, but also had a bad attitude and speaking for the Bears specifically never had the development opportunities to mature. To be blunt, the McCaskey family has a pattern of picking shit front office staff and coaches. The exception to that has been defensive coordinators.

The only way the Bears will be a championship team once again will be to remove the McCaskey family from ownership via sale.

Yea, it's sad that we're so conditioned for failure with this organization and other Chicago sports franchises.

It’s so bad that my father-in-law who lives in Chicago 95% of his life switched over to being a Packers fan when he moves up to Wisconsin. I’m not even mad at that decision as GB puts a quality product on the field.

I may be the only optimist here but I am liking the Bears moves so far. New QB, dumping Leno and picking up good OT talent, getting several speedy WRs, an RB, a couple of kick returners and a couple D players who may make the team.

I just can't stoop that low. I'd become a Lions fan but that would just be much the same misery...

A lot of people adopted the Bucs after Brady went there.

I have attended Bears/Bucs games and live close to Tampa. It's a perfect 2nd team for me. I go up to a game, stop at a Chicago pizza joint to grab some Chicago food, park for next to nothing close to the stadium and get to have some beers in shorts while watching the game. BucsLife is good.
