Having Burton would have helped, and Robinson had a decent game, but the rest of the group doesn't exactly make opposing defenses worry.
I don't think they have a great cap situation going into next season, not horrible, but fairly limited. It might be hard to make significant upgrades in that area.
Robinson is more of a 2 or at best "1b" type receiver. Cohen is a nice, gadget-y type player rather than a solid every down back. Sproles is probably a great comp for his up-side. Maybe Miller can grow into being a #1 type receiver.
After that, you've got the island of misfit toys -- Bruton is a TE who can't block much, Howard can't catch and limits his utility in this type of NFL offense. Gabriel seems limited, too.
If you assume Trubisky CAN throw for 4000+ yards next year, who's on the other side catching it?
and chickens do come home to roost.
Ryan Pace’s biggest mistake this offseason, an albatross of a contract (4yr, 60MM, 60% guaranteed), bites him in the ass.
I hope this motnerfucker doesn’t make it to the locker room. His bags should await him in the tunnel.
The Bears had already kicked three FGs. The Bears with 0-3 in the red zone. Were McCarthy or Kelly coaching?
Although only 9M is guaranteed
With 9MM guaranteed. So 3.75 per year, not 15 per year.
Thanks. It appears Windy and I made the same mistake.
I enjoyed this season more than any since 85. I am sad Andy Reid's spirit lives on.
Congrats to Golden.
was Kelly-esque in its stupidity.
More bad plays by players not ready for primetime since my previous post:
Bellamy not adjusting to a well-thrown ball by Trubisky to be able to stay on his feet and score standing up.
Robinson failing to get his second foot down on a sideline attempted catch.
You're not playing CYO football, guys. When you have chances to make plays against the defending Super Bowl champs in the playoffs, you have to make them. You don't get an unlimited number of opportunities.
It's a shame that this defense will be severely limited by this offense for years to come.
And it's a wonder that Robbie Gould has time to do anything else besides make field goals, count his money and laugh at the Bears' perpetual kicking ineptness.
At one point Jordan Howard had 8 carries with Mitch having 29 passing attempts. That was crazy to me. The dink and dunk passes weren't working and he had time. The Eagles secondary was full of backups and we didn't challenge them until it was too late.
The 2 point conversion was a bad call I didn't understand a stretch play that close to the goal line and you use the smallest guy on the team?
As usual it was like watching an ND game. Defense kept them in it but the offense was a major let down.
to year 9 when we can compete for a National Football Championship.
If you tried to aim for the goal post you would not hit it that much.
cannot let him leave.
