"mitchell trubisky" Discussed on WGR 550 Sports Radio
"The Chicago Bears wanted to send a message to Mitch Trubisky about how they feel about a quarterback account the message as being received report comes out that doing a conference call they let everybody know that there's going to be open competition to be the starting quarterback between Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles who they traded with the Jack with Jack watts war to bring into Chicago even Nick Foles understands the situation I'm here for Mitchell but I'm also here for me okay I get that this location makes it an effort that we received in the quarterback I am respectful to that situation but I'm gonna go there and just be the best support with my camper ham whatever we're doing but then when I'm playing I'm gonna I'm not beating me in the hall do what I have to do involved execute that play that Maggie called at that moment and ultimately our goal is to help the bears the best team I would have said in the Chicago bears are going to be if Mitchell Trubisky beats out Nick Foles and keeps his job not bad they they they better not be upset because they gave away Mike Singletary gale Sayers you know army Walter Payton Jim McMahon to me going down the list to get him in a draft by the way they moved up to the number two spot to get Mitchell Trubisky when added that number ten the Kansas City Chiefs select Patrick Mahomes at number twelve the Houston Texans moved up to get the shot Watson so man you you they will Ryan pace GM of the bears who made that move to get Mitchell Trubisky he will be forever hold it if all the central base key plays through I guess whatever the heck he saw about Mitchell coming out of a out of U. N. C. H. Freddie you remember when when they made that move I I had you in C. twice that year and in the Duke game close game at Duke USC has the ball chance to go win the game three plays and and the final drive pick ballgame I'm like wait a minute hold on a second this guy's going to be a a top five pick and you're making that kind of throw an area he had a bad game that day I know by the way you know the the other quarterback was two hundred and Daniel Jones as a as a of fresh out of a man of yeah yeah this happened bait this just for you know symmetry here right right but I mean I'm telling you man it's it's one of those were Ryan pace right now to go get Nick Foles for Nagy is head coach whose is bill falls before obviously only because your fourth round pick we had to pick up a lot about salary one of the great traits for any leader is to admit when you're wrong and Ryan pace right now is admitting you know what may have been wrong here on Trubisky missing open competition but but this feels like to me ready to just go Chicago like a rigged election yeah you know why because either they're gonna get Mitch Trubisky to realize that a bid to get his **** in gear or the wonderful to win the job because that's what it brought immense Nick Foles is always proven to be at his best when you don't expect them to do something where you don't expect them to come out of nowhere and the the eagles so division championship event I believe in it he wasn't coming back we have a Super Bowl championship across someone's got hurt it's the perfect situation a guy like Nick Foles because he's in a no lose situation if he gets the job people gonna say men admitted the risky what a Bobby let that guy be about when he was here for three years if he doesn't beat up Mitchell Trubisky man we got a quality backup if you're a bears fan I think Amanda Mr Bilski is not the guy we saw in two thousand eighteen the guy we saw two thousand nineteen at least you got a got a championship ring on his finger so Nick Foles is in the perfect noble situation but your major to basically and if I heard with Nick Foles said in a conference but you know you women you here to support me but you're gonna try to be better than me do this is my job this is my team this is my organization maybe that is something that the Chicago Bears want to see from which the biscuits and all hoping to see it and this we're gonna find out one way or the other if he's not afraid of competition but when the job if he's afraid of competition will be the backup quarterback and then he if it's M. as in Freddie Coleman on Freddie and Fitzsimmons and ESPN radio and see if I can tell eighty then you start the one about the future Mitchell to pesky because once you show that you can't help the team anymore especially a quarterback man you got that scarlet letter right on the front of your Jersey Mister brisket better be careful that if you lose the job in Chicago he may be relegated to being a career backup in the NFL if you can hold on to his job as a cog on twenty twenty well I'm curious to see the lights a fire under I'm Freddy because Amy had the had the bears right there in the playoffs an annual double doing we all remember it right and and he's regressed ever sense so I'm curious to see if it lights a fire under him on the other side of this if you're a bears fan which man makes you uneasy is that give me a place where Nick Foles has had success outside of Philadelphia meant that would make me nervous the answer is zero and when he's been the man had to be the man right what was the rams and I he like he got hurt in Jacksonville opener gets a shoulder crunched I get it so I mean I even give my a pass on that sure but when he's had to be the backup guide step in may he's been exceptional when the pressure is it really old you the weight of the world is on you you know and you have to carry the franchise a franchise quarterback you know he really hasn't blossomed now he's had to step in and go play Paul **** made jokes now Montana but other than what he's had to be V. guy day in day out you haven't seen it so that's another aspect of this whole thing I hope it lights a fire an image and I hope being reunited with Nagy you know gets Nick Foles to be the dude every day that that we have seen when he hasn't had to be the guy that's the curious dynamic here is that there isn't a clear cut front runner because right everything that I just stated yeah wait when you just bring the guys open competition immediately it didn't wait till right before training camp yeah I was in a way through training camp they bases of right now no matter when this NFL season starts go get it guys may the best man win who's ever gonna be last man stand because normally in it's something had to happen to camp for the competition open up because the guy's not playing well they want even waiting for training camp they also Mister misty with your handle or be handle what's gonna do son what you gonna do about it it still feels like it's almost their rig Alexion where **** gone that's my guy he knows this offense adds the one over but since Ryan you traded up to get Trubisky will make this a quote open competition we'll see what I've got yes and also here in if you want to keep a mistake in the building nothing says moving often that mistake by bringing together the Superbowl MVP that the Superbowl championship and like you mentioned knows the offense of the head coach when they were together when he was in the system in Kansas city and Nick Foles was a backup I can't wait to hear anything from is the best key on this open competition because he's been awful silence it was a that was put out there by the Chicago Bears he David Simmons on Freddie Coleman thanks for joining us on Freddie and Fitzsimmons a two time football champion will weigh in on football and us going forward by not going backwards keep it here on ESPN radio ESPN app answers

Chicago Bears acquire Nick Foles from Jacksonville Jaguars
"Like Chicago Bears traded Ford Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles yesterday and I'm not sure there any quarterbacks who have had a stranger career than Nick Foles everybody knows about that incredible postseason run with the eagles in twenty seventeen the rest of his resume is kind of spotty had one season where he threw twenty seven touchdowns and two interceptions the best team need to interception ratio in NFL history but that was with chip Kelly number one ship was reinventing the NFL back in twenty thirteen with the eagles he's one of a handful quarterbacks ever throw seven touchdowns in a game so he's done incredible things went toe to toe with Brady in the Superbowl but he's also had a disappointing season with the rams a backup with the chiefs disastrous contract in Jacksonville that wasn't his fault got injured in Jacksonville now he's reunited with former offense to coach Matt Nagy in Chicago so which Nicole shows up who knows and is he good enough to beat out Mitchell Trubisky all we know is falls is not scared you don't want to play against him in a big game the question is will the bears get that far where he plays in a
The Bears ended an 'especially disappointing' season with an especially disappointing press conference
"Ryan Pace. You're on the clock despite a disappointing season for Mitchell trubisky. The bears announced that he is returning as the team's starter in twenty twenty. There were however some some changes. The team fired four coaches from the offensive staff including offensive coordinator. And then you look at what happened. The last six weeks of the season season. And this is what I think. Gm Ryan Pace has had on you look at the record. Obviously passing yards. Everything improved but dominique. Are you really buying this statement. Because because from my point of view on the outside looking in D- in the Arizona cardinals say you know. What Josh Rosen Guy? By the way Kyla Murray were drafted number. One I'm glad we got Tannenbaum Outta here because in general managers lie that was a general manager generally lying I at least I hope it was because would Mitchell trubisky show like. It's hard to come back with this guy. Considering the way that he performed. I know we got better in part because the coaching around him got better. They started moving out of the pocket and running the ball with a little more. That's encouraging however it's hard to. It's it's impossible to argue that. He's not wildly inaccurate. And that's tough in this league to be wildly inaccurate. Like he is and I

Lamar vs. Deshaun: Dual-Threat Duel
"Dummy Foxworth is a former. NFL Player in a writer. At the undefeated undefeated Dominique Texans at Ravens Shawn Watson versus Lamar Jackson. I M extremely pumped to watch this football game name I mean how could you not like their playoff implications about like the first round by then you have to. MVP caliber quarterbacks going face to face race is not even that they are officiant are exciting. Like Lamar Jackson is spending people out of their shoes back. And I got a touchtone school into Shawn Watson taken feet to the face and throwing touchdown passes swatted. Betty goes down. We stay so to speak. This might be the most exciting game of the year. Well let's back up. This is not the first time these two quarterbacks have played what happened during their last match up as they played against each the other twenty sixteen in college we have a QB dual death Valley Malabar Jackson sensation in the sport but Shawn Watson. Is this delete veteran. Lamar Jackson Accent was at Louisville. A Lot less talented Louisville going up against Clemson and it was everything that you wanted Jackson Jackson. What's the pocket staff? Lived up to the. Both of those guys had great games. I think Jackson had nearly the three hundred yards passing any at one. Hundred sixty yards rushing touchdowns rushing one passing. Scores Standing at Louisville is walk. You're right back in this game and Watson won the game with over three hundred yards passing and five touchdowns through the air. In Ninety one yards rushing fires back the open it was a great game was close. Lamar Jackson and his team came this short of the end zone Jackson. Listen it go back then in two thousand sixteen. What was the perception of both of these quarterbacks like I mean Lamar was Ryan? Pretty high ended up winning the heisman trophy. That year and does Shawn Watson didn't do too bad himself want a national championship that year. I think people were very very the high on both of them right. well as I mentioned Sean went out and won the title. That year seemed like a no brainer that he would be A starting caliber. NFL quarterback a sure thing and yet the draft comes around and he falls to number twelve. He was picked behind. Mitch Trubisky and Dan Patrick Mahomes what happened. I don't know it didn't make sense because he didn't just win the National Championship. He came from behind throwing the ball through the air. Picking apart art the Alabama defense which was loaded with NFL talent. It seemed like what more do you want and then the very next year. Lamar Jackson also faced faced skepticism. When it came to his prospects in the NFL there were some respected people at this network and elsewhere who thought that maybe his best chance at succeeding being in the NFL was to play receiver which just made absolutely no sense? heisman trophy quarterback who wasn't running the option in college. He was running a pro style offense essentially at least a passing place. Where pro style? Why anybody would think that he needed to switch? Physicians was dumbfounded. You and I washed him very closely closely. Dominique ahead of the draft. We actually wrote a piece together about what it would take for him to succeed in the NFL. What was your conclusion from doing that? We look more deeply into a player's background in on field performance than I had with any other player and I remember being surprised at how developed a pocket could passer he was because all his highlights highlights that resonating. Your mind are him running so you think well maybe. He's like a running quarterback but no the criticism about him was not at all about his ability to read defenses or run a pro style offense. The criticism about him was about his accuracy which is fair but he was much further along as far as being. NFL Pro Ready Ready quarterback than most guys will get kind of tagged with that dual threat right. I went to his day in Louisville for our peace to do some reporting what did strike me about being there was during his throwing drills seeing how bad his wide receiver rose war they were dropping passes right and left. Yeah and I would think that. Having living bad receivers frankly or just generally mediocre talent would bode well for him in the draft process. That people would recognize that he was that entire program. I am all the success that they had while he was there was because he was great. And it's interesting that you bring that up because somehow teams looked at him and didn't appreciate that and then they looked at Shawn Watson in maybe poverty why he slid was because they had so much talent at Clemson. So like People looked at Shawn Watson and they might have seen maybe a guy who was just orchestrating a bunch of great talent and not a great talent himself. I'm not sure how they could watch the film and come to that conclusion. At the time I remember being kind of confused by but I don't understand Dan. How else do you select him behind? Somebody like Mitchell trubisky. Dominic what do you remember from watching the two thousand eighteen draft Well first of all I remember I remember watching it in a dark room with you and Bristol doing some sort of live show. It was really fun. And I remember Lamar Jackson showing up in that beautiful green suit and and feeling optimistic about him landing on a team early because I frankly thought he was the best quarterback in that draft and then watching him slowly. Sit there and all the time passing by and I remember thinking that. There's no way that they're going to let this heisman trophy. Winning Uber towns at quarterback. Go into the second day but the ravens swooped in and grabbed him with thirty second. Pick in the two thousand eighteen. NFL draft the Baltimore. Ravens Select Lamar Jackson in Louisville Right. Meanwhile I'm sure that he was uncomfortable in that moment and he did not enjoy sitting there in the green room with the cameras. Keep checking on his side face but it worked out because I don't think that he would have the success as in many other teams. You use the word confused to describe your reactions to watching these quarterbacks drop in the draft but really I I think you have some thoughts as to why it happened now. Oh Yeah I wasn't confused. Shocked said that because I seem like the right to say hey. I'm black man. I'm very aware of the the unconscious. Or maybe sometimes conscious bias that that goes into the decision making that happens in football and sports beyond that it just as difficult when you assume that there's so much riding on making the right decision that people have a difficult time getting past whatever biases. They are to try to succeed. So I'm not surprised. I think those those players that are brought up earlier like the contrast I bear I think makes it more glaring than anything else is like when you look at Lamar Jackson Deshaun Watson. Why are you more prone to see someone like rg three your career path? That's not successful than you are to see a career path of a quarterback who did succeed. There's just kind of faulty narrative out there that I think a lot of people whether knowingly or not kind of ascribed to is that mobile or athletic dole thread are or frankly just black quarterbacks. Don't don't pan out when they get to the
Cam Newton reportedly open to being traded this offseason
"A report CAM. Newton would except a trade to the bears. Well you can't trade him now. The trade deadline is over. So now we get to have that hanging over Mitchell trubisky the entire or season and offseason and Cam. You know what those scarfs that he wears in Carolina would come in Handy in
"mitchell trubisky" Discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock
"Lockton Wiley. Mark Sarath is back. We're joined now by Fox Sports College football analysts and Heisman Trophy winner superbowl champion Reggie Bush now for big story. Let's move oh to Monday night. Football where the bears dominated the redskins last night with the defense running roughshod over the Washington redskins with five turnovers even Mitchell trubisky got the fun throwing for three touchdowns after slow start to the year than once again left people doubting him trubisky continues to be compared to a couple of guys drafted after him Patrick Mahomes and Shawn Watson and unfortunately for Mitch Everhart Mahomes and Watson Clemson Lipson him in records in passing yards and touchdown Sabrina Hill Runyon critics to Silas Allison what did Mitchell trubisky silences critics last night no silence no. They're still out there whisper and since we you you ran out of line items there because you could have put a pro football focus you know my favorite Jalen Ramsey was what thirty six month thirty eight qualified quarterbacks a gene number two overall pick and we had to give up picks to move up into drafting it you that said I like Mitchell trubisky. I tell tell you what I like about him. He can make the throws and he's mobile and they're asking something different him in this system miss year then and they even did last year. What's interesting air? Rogers is going through the same thing and his new system with Matt Leflore Aaron Rodgers numbers are down until you play against them and you realize carajas is still air rogers this situation would him because of the defense because the defense and Green Bay. They're asking him to do something different. Last night we saw eighty percent completion percentage last night. We saw them win a ballgame him. Throw three touchdown so all that said the body of work is not ah up to where he conveniently schiff it as a number two overall pick but I'm still start supporter of Mitch trubisky especially with the adjustments they made this year in this offense and I like what I saw from him this game but we also got to look at the facts that deepens play lights out. They got five turnovers. They scored twenty one points off of turnover so my question is what happens when that defense doesn't get any turnovers right when they play against a New England patriots team or or even Green Bay packers team where they can protect the football all right and and not allow the defense to do what they did last night against case keenum was I feel bad for case keenum where he was running for his life but again when when when this when it falls or Mitchell trubisky shoulders and he has to go out and win net football game for him. That's where I have questions because I still saw some overthrows rose. I saw some good trubisky I saw some batch bisky and so we need consistency. We can't have these kinds of games every three or four games right because because at the end of the day you are the leader of this team or the quarterback and at some point we're GONNA have to rely on you to win a football game you know how your built as a football team and I will tell you I did the week two game in Denver with that Defense Yeah and I'll just be straight with you. Guys is a former offensive lineman in me as I studied their defense. I got diarrhea. I kid you not I had to rush the restaurant they are. They are that good at all three levels. I'm telling you with a MAC or whether it's Hicks or whether it's Roy Robertson Harris or whether for its Roquan Smith Danny Trevathan Eddie Jackson Eddie Jackson is was compared by Chuck Pagano to me as a as as a young young like a young read in Baltimore. That's like they are that good on defense so understand that rely on that aspect of your football team I I looked at them and I thought this reminds me of the early nineties when I played in Washington when the Eagles had Mike Pitts Jerome Brown and Reggie White and Clyde lied Simmons and Byron Evans and Seth Joyner and Eric Allen like that's how good this defense is they are legit and Mitch trubisky risky is not GonNa win you games out of the pocket. That's not what he's going to do but when they run the ball they flag all that you know all that zone read stuff you know and the RPO game and when they get him out of the pocket watch him throw these balls out of the pocket when he moves out of the pocket this guy is is accurate and as good as anybody in the pocket. That's where he struggles a little bit so you have to design the offense for him is going to shut up his critics no because if he gets in one of those games where he's got to go out and win it you know that's a big question mark I well. I think he can do that probably not at this stage in his career. you know what I'm going to read to you up here at he's who thought Daniel Jones was bid and the guys behind him and so yes. There's no chance of him silence his critics because if I'm GonNa Kogyo Bears Fan I'm I'm always GonNa sit there and say if you put the shine Washington Patrick Mahomes with this defense my God and so it's GonNa be impossible for him to silence his critics but I agree with stink. I was watching that game last night and I started. I always referred to the the perfect storm defense the Baltimore Ravens put together with Ray Lewis in two thousand and I started asking myself like I wonder if Khalil Mack can be that guy and like what Ray Lewis was and that whole defensive personnel they got Ken they just overwhelm you with defense and make it so Mitchell trubisky just runs downhill most through the season and if they can do that mission risk it might not have to silence his critics to have a lot of success. That's like the Chicago bears team. Now we played against a no six beat us right when rex Grossman at quarterback in and Brian Urlacher at linebacker that defense they were every time they gotta turn over. It was a touchdown right. They were louder and passes is back to each other on the defense carried them into the Super Bowl right Devin hester returning kicks returned to open the Super Bowl for a touchdown and so there he's been this formula has been proven to work is just not often right. It's not often that we have to carry a team all the way into the Super Bowl so will this defense is good their lights out and I've had unfortunate pleasure of playing against the Divas Kinda like this before and so maybe it can work right. Maybe this formula does work workout for them because I agree with you. I don't know if we can depend on Trubisky to win this game with right arm in the pocket. Here's what you're going to have to depend on and this is interesting. you're gonNA have to depend on that. Defense continued creek turnover. They led the league last year with thirty six. You know what the last team to lead the League was internal creating creating turnovers and then the next year beat that number of turnovers the last team to do that so they had thirty six last year the last team to have lead the league in turn over and then beat that number they had the previous year nineteen seventy-three steelers. That's that's how rare that is verified. Ask you this because you covered one of their games had some interaction with Matt Nagy The concern I would have Matt Nagy offense coat. He's part of the decision making and I believe that went up and got trubisky and so will his eagle get involve in terms of I gotta make this offense go. I gotTa make this quarterback back go. I'm an offensive minded coach. This is my quarterback. I WANNA do it. mcvay via Malaysia get involved. I know I think he is. He is very matt is very he understands that Mitch Played Thirteen Games in college that there's a learning curve and everybody's on different learning curve they get to this league some guys that weren't any came out of small schools and didn't do anything all of a sudden jump into the NFL. Oh yeah this makes sense to me and some guys who played in big schools. were all everything getting viz lingo. Oh my gosh they're not overwhelmed right so he understands that there's a process here and he's okay with that process you know he told me that the first game against Green Bay the Thursday night opener was a longest drive home he's ever had because he didn't put his team in a position to win. Eagle four running plays in the second half and basically said Hey Mitch it's on you and he's like well now like you gotta give me a break. I said Hey Matt tell me the last time that that you called in RPO and the quarterback had the option to throw it and he chose not to like you're like don't give me that I had more of them called. You got it all right but he understands. He understands that. There's a process here and I I really he's one of those young coaches that I look at Canadia sharp. He understands what it's football. Team is and he understands his he needs to do a great job of calling plays and putting his a quarterback any position success. I just wanted to sum it all up. He's a mixed bag of nuts. This is be real laws. They take the Brazil nuts. Those are the dirt indeed nasty right. They don't even have no flavor the day after you have a one sixteen quarterback rating is not the day we should be doing this and that's what Mitch Trubisky but at the same time only five quarterbacks this year have three starts at three or fewer passing touchdown him kirk cousins Baker Mayfield Josh Josh Allen Joe flacco not the company you.
There are 17 Networks covering the NFL: When is enough enough?
"The NFL draft Howard, even covering the NFL for many years. We're talking about the NFL coverage in in how they're seventeen networks now covering the NFL is is possible to have too much coverage. I don't know. Too much. I really don't because the public is who determines it? Sure. And the public and the public is just has an insatiable appetite for this stuff. And you know, a lot of the interviews that I've been doing this week and last and talking about how the draft has come. I was on the first broadcast for ESPN in nineteen eighty and then in what is now it's another world, and, but you know, with the draft of the coverage on the internet and the mock drafts and all that I say the number of there are it's just crazy. It's over the top. But yet the people love them people didn't want them and read them and talk about them. Then no one would do. And so that's what drives it all. And so as long as the public watches, then that's going to be the key. We'll be interesting this year with a third network doing doing something totally different ABC's and the other two to see what kind of traction they get with the competition. But. Like, I said, it just seems that whatever it is football related with the NFL people. Just can't get enough of it. We get to the drafts of interesting news today regarding Josh Gordon and now New England Patriots. How does the Josh Gordon movie end? Yeah. I don't think anybody knows the answer to that one. Probably the person who knows the answers Josh court. And so that's the thing about it. And so the patriots are. You know, what's this all about when he was suspended during last season? Everyone's Josh, Gordon. But you know, who don't censor? The patriots are figuring. Hey, we retain the right? If it gets his act together, then we've got him eat annot now signing that tender that money counts against the cat. Now. Of course, when you have a cabinet as high as it is another two million dollars, isn't that big a deal, and obviously you get paid a dime unless he's on the roster. And so I would think though that the patriots wouldn't have done this in less. They were getting some good reports about where Josh Gordon is with his life since. The suspension came down. Whatever last November. I guess. Early December that here it is. It's been several months, and they must have some I would think inclination or insight that says that he might be available at some point this season. But we'll wait and see. But like I said an answer to your question. I don't think anybody knows that answer. Howard. Please tell me that you don't believe that the Oakland riders are going to take a quarterback at four. I I don't think they should. But you know, like. You can never say never. I mean, that's that's the thing about the draft. And I often said this is that we all whether we talk about the draft to write about it. Whatever it is. We should eliminate the word unexpected or surprise from vocabulary. Because there's there's no such thing as a surprise when it comes to the NFL draft. And that's just the reality guys couple years ago. If I was on the allows on your show two nights before the draft. And I said I'm going to predict that the Kansas City. Chiefs are going to trade up to number ten and Patrick Mahomes. And you probably would have sent someone to my house to have to have my brain tested wondering if I if I totally lost my mind, and yet that would happen. And so that's why you just never know. And of course, the the raiders situations different than the chiefs. They had a quarterback that was getting up there in years. The raiders have still pretty young guy who you should be able to build something really good around. But that doesn't mean that Jon Gruden Mike may I don't have some crazy scenario cockpit where they just might might take one and they signed several others in the off season surprise in another guy. I would be crazy to do that in the first round. Maybe at the end of the first round there's someone sitting there that they can beat developed. But if they take someone early I think that that would be a little crazy. But that doesn't mean that I dismissed it as being a possibility of happening Howard. Is there a team in the top ten that you can see frightening out of their current spot and accumulating additional picks? I think there several teams that would like to trade out the question is. And then the jets have been a team in a lot of people talked about because you know, this is this is a draft. It's pretty strong and defensive players. There's gonna be a bunch of defensive lineman that going to top five ten and so teams trading down know that they're still going to get a really good player if they trade down a few spots, the key is who wants to trade up. And what are they looking for? I would think that the team I like to in some respects. I liked the draft to come to be especially when there's that many good players, especially if you need a defensive lineman now up to get one of those quarterbacks as we're talking about the trade up two years ago with Mahomes, we had to bear trade up at spot San Francisco to get Mitchell Trubisky we have buffalo trading Josh Allen. So. If one of these teams wants a quarterback and has their mind set on a certain one, then we could see a trade like that in the top ten and again, no one really knows what these teams are thinking. But if they're like I said if there's a team that has identified one of these quarterbacks than that. That's that's the position that certainly were trading up for if you wanna get you wanna get a guy sticking with the quarterback team doesn't seem to be really rated as a high quarterback challenged draft. But which team Indo which quarterback is going to screw everybody fix up by grabbing somebody early in. Yeah. That's that's a really good question. And obviously what the cardinals do will set the stage for what happens after that. And they do take Tyler Mary than I think we're going to see three other quarterbacks. Maybe a fourth goal in the first round the question is where will it be? Will it be Denver? Will it be? My aunt. Will it be Washington? I mean, those are all pretty good possibilities for a team taking a quarterback. I think it's still pretty good draft for quarterbacks. And so, you know, yes, there's not a guy that you just automatically say is going to be in a Pro Bowl in a couple of years. But I think I several of these guys with the right situation. The right coaching the coaching staff and the right team around him. I think they have the chance to be very good players talking to Howard Walser NFL draft two nights from now. Progressive insurance guest line here Spey nation radio Howard. It's never been Bill. Bell checks MO to trade up. But with the retirement of rob gronkowski that the tight end out of Iowa Hawkins sent a lot of people are talking about would be a great replacement. He may go. Hi, people saying even top ten pick possibly could you see Bella check making a move with with Matt Patricia in Detroit to try to move up to Hopkinson. I think we could see him try to move up getting metal from thirty two to eight is probably wait too far to go. Okay. The patriots have a lot of ammunition a bunch of extra of other picks the second third round. But to give up that many to give up what you have to give up that far. I think would be very very difficult. But it can who knows who knows when Hawkins middle go. I I'm you know yet. You're right. He could go that early or he, you know, obviously, he might not. And I think they've obviously there's certainly looking at the tight end very closely. And there's you know, they they might feel. We can stay where you are. And then, but if someone is still sitting there when you get into the twenty well that would be the place to make a move because it's not going to be as costly. As like, I said, I can't even imagine what it would take to move up twenty four spots. Because if you're the lions and all you need, then to trade down that is is pretty crazy. You make that move and then moved back up because of the hall you've gotten from the patriots. But still move out of the top ten and get a player that can really come in and help your football team. I would not be the greatest move for the
Bears will release kicker Cody Parkey at the start of the new league year
"Let's talk about the Chicago Bears. They are going to release Cody parkey at the start of the new league year sources confirmed ESPN today. Sources are we are we surprised I mean, I don't think this is a surprising move. I think I think that the the timing of it the way that it just kind of came out of the blue from Ian Rapoport tweeting it out confirmed by Adam Schefter. So now, it's basically official until they do it. The league year starts in the middle of March. That's when the the free. Agency, period begins teams can sign players teams can trade players and teams can release players. And one of those players will be Cody parkey, it's going to cost the bears on the dead cap. Five point five point one five point one almost five point two million dollars. So they're going to basically have to pay to kickers next year. You're going to have to pay Cody parkey to go away. And then you're gonna have to pay whoever ends up being the bears kicker whether that's someone that they draft hopefully, not or someone that they sign whether it's veteran, whether it's an undrafted free agent, weather, whoever it is they're going to have to pay to kickers the article on ESPN dot com says parking miss eight field goals, including a forty three yard kick. That would have beaten the Philadelphia Eagles in the first round of the playoffs. We know that with his first season with the bears the bears signed parking for a four year four year deal including nine million dollars guaranteed last March bears coach Matt Nagy express disapproval with park Parke's decision to appear on the today show five days after missing his final attempt after. Filadelfia? The NFL network was first to report that parkey will be released from the Chicago Bears. So that's dot com and Abdali, you're right. Like it's not a surprise as a bears fan. I think we all saw this coming and you're right. They're going to have to pay to kickers again not much of a surprise because we all saw this coming the thing that I want to see is allow someone to win this job this summer, right? Undrafted rookie guys who are out there on the street right now have a kicking competition this summer in training camp allowed the guy to win that competition and that will be your kicker heading into the season. I don't want to spend any more big dollars on a kicker now. That's just my philosophy. I'm Chris black. And that's what I do if I'm running a football team. I don't spend on kickers. That's just why do I also don't draft running backs in the first round. And that's how I run my organization, and I continued drafting quarterbacks until I find the guy that's how I would run things. So I get it that Ryan pace has. Messed up. I'm glad that Ryan that Cody parkey will be gone, but let's not mess up again and pay big time for a kicker whose unnecessary. Let's just find someone who can get the job done probably at the league minimum. And let's go on our merry way. Because in all reality. I know what a lot bears fans are going to tell us is the reason they didn't win the Super Bowl this year. Was Cody parkey. And I think that that's not correct. I think the reason you lost that eagles game is because that kick did not go through. But you also had opportunities where you could win the football game. And not put it in your kickers. Put you see what I'm saying? So the bears have many opportunities going forward to be a very good football team. And I think overspending on a kicker after this mess up by Ryan pace in in signing, Cody parking in the first place. Let's not compound this issue. Let's just find the guy in training camp. And let's go forward as bears fans. Yeah. I think the reason that you lost that game is because Cody parkey had to make three. Kicks to set up that fourth kick. Right. And then Mitchell Trubisky didn't get his blank together until the second half of the game. And then drove them down the field in what should have been a game winning drive. And then ultimately you the team's effort was placed on Cody parkey. I'm not gonna sit here and let you slander Mitch Trubisky tonight Abdala the defense also had an opportunity to stop. Yeah. Did who is not a outstanding quarterback zone? Right. Like the bears defense. The best defense in the league could have shown up in the fourth quarter in stop the eagles. Offense, thus negating the necessity of Cody parkey to even have to make a kick out the end opportunities to beat the eagles in that football. Here's a will. Appease the fan base. You've already done the first thing you've cut Cody parkey, check, right. The next thing is not don't answer to the cries of the fans and say go sign Robbie gold Ella. Rodney gulp. Ravi builds. Great kicker. Great kicker. Wasn't a good kicker when he was cut by the bears. But ultimately said that's what he needed to get back. So don't call up and say, well, he was he he's being great. They would've won. No, they wouldn't have if they wouldn't have ever if they would cut him. It's a cutting him for him to go back and figure out a new to readjust his kicking to figure out a way to get right again. And he did. And now he's good kicker again. He's also gonna be expensive. So don't spend that money. Don't spend an extra five million dollars that extra nine. Dollars or whatever signing Ravi gold. Go find next Ravi gold. Spend the minimum like you said don't draft either. No don't be drafting kickers. We're not drafted running backs in the first round. Have a whole lot of traffic in this strap. We shouldn't be you shouldn't go out and try to draft a kicker because you have to address other issues on this team. And that's going to be done with those draft picks you find the undrafted free agent. You hold tryouts. You do whatever you do make it a Disney movie. I don't care. Find a kicker and find a way because you don't will. Appease the fan base ultimately
Ready Freddie: Kitchens hired by Browns after offensive run
"Of it. He's not saying, I don't like, Freddie kitchens. I'm not. I'm just saying I don't think he's ready to be a head coach. Because I don't think the resume has kind of allowed me to believe that he'd be ready to be the head coach at this point. That's the issue that I have here. Claire, yes. Yeah. And I mean, that's a legitimate point. But sometimes you just have to learn on the fly, man. And I think for them flying under the radar and look at look within their division. You've got the Pittsburgh Steelers. I mean, they're all over the place. You know what I'm saying? They're trying to work out a contract with been will they trade Antonio Brown. They got a lot of stuff going on. They need to get rid of the defensive coordinator. You look at Baltimore. They're transitioning in terms of their quarterback and their quarterback. What does he do seventy percent of the time? He runs the football will be able to last. So this is a division to my whole point is this is a division and Cincinnati stinks. This is a division that's up in the air. And if you're talking about a team trending upward a team that wants to keep the same momentum going into the off season right into the regular season to the preseason. Well, you don't wanna have a lot of moving parts. You don't wanna hear a different voice a lot of times. And I like the fact that, you know, the players respect him, and they say he hold you accountable, and it's just a different energy up in here. And he. Brings that. And maybe this guy he's going to work extra hard because he doesn't have the big name. He doesn't have the accolades, and he said he says, I'm you know, I don't have the big name. I had to do it the old fashioned way. And that's one of the reasons why he's so motivated, so I like the movement. Freddie kitchens is my guy. He is your guy you love the warriors. You'll have this and you'll love Freddie kitchens as an NFL head coach safety blades. Rodney Harrison Dan Schwartzman. NBC sports radio. Are you a little conflicted on this one? Looking Vic Fangio has been around the NFL for thirty two years is insistent coach defensive-minded a great job. Look, I give him more credit than I give Matt Nagy Nagy by the way for the bears because I never thought the bears Nike Nagy, right? I. Nagy right. No, listen. Listen, listen to me like Eggy Nagy Nagy, man. Right. That's he corrected. Chris Collins worth and all the guys up a it's like Eggy Nagy, Matt Nagy. Thank you producer. Thank you. Professor. So Matt Nagy gets all the credit and to me it should be Vic Fangio because his defense was a calling card for the for the Chicago now. Oh, come on. Do he's sitting get all the credit and all, but it does not get all the credit. He gets a bunch of credit for turning Mitchell Trubisky around think about and I'm from Chicago. And I get the text messages. I get the phone calls. They thought Mitchell Trubisky was going to be an absolute bused everybody in Chicago was nervous guys come in. You saw the potential Mitchell Trubisky saw the improvement. You saw the offense. Make a lot of plays and just become a different level of offense that they've had in the past. Yes, I mean like and this is no disrespect to Vic Fangio. But then could you call a couple of coverages and defenses with all that talent have on the defensive side of the ball. You got Khalil Mack. You gotta Keam Hicks having his best season. As a pro. You got two young stud. Danny's treve. You got roquan Smith. You got to all pros in the secondary prince amukamara he's playing well Adrian ammos like I should be the defense coordinator of the Chicago Bears. Trust me. It'd be freaking good to all right. But wait a minute. Wait a minute Mr. Chicago here, and you can tell your friends give them a call, text and whatever Mitchell Trubisky every
"mitchell trubisky" Discussed on Fantasy Feast: 'Eatin
"A half rushing yards for Mitchell Trubisky or if you get it even at like twenty one and a half or twenty two and a half. I think it's worth it. And I guess they're just looking at like recent recent games because. Because Mitchell Trubisky is not since he came back from a shoulder injury hasn't been running as much of a Jordan Howard has been running a lot more. And I think they might just have been trying to go a little bit of vanilla late in the year, and, you know, not use Mitchell Trubisky as much as a runner, but Mitchell Trubisky is a top three or four running quarterback in the in the entire NFL you finish number five in rushing yards despite missing two games and the only quarterback that finished ahead of him in rushing yards. Was that had a higher yards per carry? Average was Josh Allen, but Trubisky average over six yards per Terry. And he could get there on one play to get there on one rushing attempt. Beat this prob on one run. So that of all the props that I've heard about that that I've seen it. Mitchell Trubisky over twenty and a half rushing yards. I think that's an awesome awesome prob to hit. And I also think that he's a good play in daily fantasy in stacks with Tarik Cohen Tariq Cohen. I'm sorry. Tariq Cohen Torri Cohen. I think is going to be a real real problem for the eagles. I don't know exactly how they're going to deal with him. You know, they've got this depleted secondary. Their entire first team second in their look, they're their secondary has held up well recently, but I you know, I don't know if that's necessarily gonna continue to translate. And I mean, they face you know, they faced a pretty weak schedule down the stretch. And they want a lot of close games early in the season. They were losing the close game. So the the regression to the mean kinda hit him. But I I still think they're secondary to attack. Enteric Tariq Cohen can run downfield routes. He can turn check downs into big games. He's going to be active and get you know, supplemental touches in in in the return game. And if Terry an if Mitchell Trubisky throws a touchdown pass to Tariq Cohen who finished third among all NFL running backs in receiving yards and finished fourth among NFL running backs in receiving. Touchdowns, you know, then then that's gonna pay off as a stack in daily fantasy. I think that's my favorite stack from this game. Obviously fools out Sean Jeffrey up there as well. In the receiver core. It's always a crapshoot with the bears. But in the final months of the season. Allen Robinson led the team in. Targets per game at seven point eight. He also led the team in both total area arts and total receiving yards despite missing week seventeen of but he's going to be at one hundred percent in this game. And I think that he's a guy that's going to be able to get open against these eagles Cornerbacks. And then Taylor. Gabriel intriguing. Kind of dart throw. He's got some big playability yet some decent games down the stretch. I think he's going to be healthy. You did leave the last game with a rib injury. But everything sounds pretty good on him full practice. Dr child says you're not even really talking about him. So I think the Taylor Gabriel cheap. Anthony Miller his arm came out of the socket again last week, and Dr Chow says he's gonna play do you wanna play fantasy, dude? Who's arm is coming out of the socket? I kind of don't and then. Tight end. Tree. Burton item shaking is back in his snaps have gone up every single game. And last week. He played fifty four percent of snaps. Trae Burton is still been really active. This is you know game against his former team. I don't know if you call it a revenge game. There's nothing really to get revenge about Traber. But he's in the mix as a play. You know, I would have him probably a head of Blake Darwin. But definitely behind Eric Hebron, Zakar and. In in that vicinity just in terms of straight rankings for the wildcard slate. But yeah, that that takes care or no, I'm sorry..

It's always a great day. When you get to talk to the White Sox hitting coach dots. Davidson who was with us coach you lost a couple of guys this week in AVI Garcia, and Matt Davidson at least for now not being brought back by the club. Of course that could change down the line, but let's start there. And what will you miss about? I guess let's AVI. What will you miss about, AVI? The most. Bobby? I started with the five. Five years of of a lot of work and watched him mature. And he's a great kid. He's got a lot of upside. Really? The relationship. Where would I be pretty good? And you know, he did a lot of last year with with severe injuries and things like that. But overall, you know, you gotta wish. Well, you know, we ended up getting them back. That's great. And Matt Davidson started last year with a bang that another bang than another bang when you think of the big slugger. What are you gonna think of? Matty, he came over in the back, straight Hidetada trade. And you know, he he struggled through the to the minor leagues. Little bit. Did finally put it together came to the big league sending us. I I must be got hurt. Did he was able to go out and easy dropped twenty six homers a year ago twenty this year didn't match that? But overall, you know, Maddie Maddie had added as a that is at his age. He did he did. Well spot also had a chance to mature as a big league hitter. It ain't easy learning on the job in the big leagues. And. Really? Still put out almost tools on a daily basis was this one coach what are you doing this off season? Let's get we jumped right into players. I wanna get a quick update from how you're spending your time. I know you watch a ton of football. I know you're a huge Mitchell Trubisky fan. You know, what I live in Phoenix? So they just got done over speeding all the golf courses. I'm not any good at golf, but that is up to do. So I've gone out and played a couple rounds of golf. Panitan obviously what's going on in major league baseball our business. I have to watch them a ton of football that is that is a passion of mine, and as for Mitchell Trubisky, you know, it'd be need to come over to the side stadium. And and we could do some sliding drills with him or something. That's a great opportunity suggestion right there. Coach Mitchell, should perhaps take you up on that say, so you've sort of been sentenced to watching the Arizona Cardinals their rookie. Josh Rosen looks pretty good. What do you think he's got a future in the league? The ad is the number one quarterback coming out of that whole class that year was was Baker Mayfield. I think he'd have a high upside I motor by talked about it. I things like that. But I as a competitor. It is something to be said you can't quantify that with with numbers and things like that to go out and compete. He does. Well, now, Hugh Jackson, of course, was the Browns coach who got fired and Baker Mayfield said a couple of things, you know, about how the Browns are so much better off without the head coach. Do you have a problem with the player who would say something like that to the media? I don't know the situation over there or their interaction, you know, behind closed doors and things like that. So. I I will reserve. Not really comment on that. But you would assume that that everything needs some leadership and typically if it comes it comes from the top top down at the bottom, you know, front office Doges than players players got to play and an NFL coaches make they make the the game plan weekly waking in a week out that players don't like it. You know, that's on them. But they still got to go out and play. Also, who's the it was the most Baker like in that white size clubhouse right now trick what would you say? Let me see Nikki Bill, Monaco. He's a he's a football fan. Also, he's a competitor. Jimmy. Better obviously Ingle, obviously, he goes ex football player himself. So he comes out with that type of attitude every day. Also at the end of the day. I want all twelve hitters that competitive level. There's there's nothing better than having twelve guys. Go out there and say, let's put it on the table every day, and and let the cars Labor Day lake. Let's start with TIMMY from who you just named next level for TIMMY next year. What do you think you'll be working out with him come spring training? How high can he go and twenty nineteen. I guess I hate to put like feelings on guys or or specifics AutoCAD like that. But in my opinion to me is a is a much better hitter. Then then everyone is probably speed when he first came up to eighty the the game actually adjust itself to you. And it's up to you to adjust to the game as well. And I think the last couple of years at him learning what baseball's all about novice as you saw defensively he made leaps and bounds defensively. What he put his mind to? I think the thing the same flops factor can can happen on the office inside in terms of consistency from him. He's a good hitter. He's really good hitter. And I think once once it comes together completely form, and I think next year could be a good good time for I think all the White Sox fan would be really happy about that where you're working with the guy like Johann Moncada who is this incredibly heralded rookie, and he's going to be the face of the White Sox. And he's the future of the White Sox. Do you feel any I know you've been doing this forever? But you feel any extra added pressure when you work with a guy like that? I wouldn't say that any added pressure. I think the if you're confident in your message. That's we give it to the players, then there's no pressure there. Yoyo is a very very talented player absolute and is rookie year. I mean, a lot of people could make. One way or another. But overall, I think if if you were to say on on day one of the season if a rookie second baseman at twenty three years old was gonna score over seventy runs has seventeen homers have over sixty rabies in double digits donor basis. I'm not sure anybody wouldn't have taken that, you know. So the the message of of getting better of competing every day. And understanding the game is huge. And I think he's he's had his first full season and a little half a season the year before that and at the end of it. I think he's he's also mature from that as well. Take time out. We're gonna come back with Todd Stevens said I want to ask a question to start with a yawn mancado. And what that looks like next season. This is White Sox weekly on seven twenty WGN..

Mitchell Trubisky, Vikings And Kirk discussed on Fantasy Focus Football
"Sometimes you make quarterback are most of the time of your streaming quarterback because you're replacing your normal starter. Sometimes you do. So because you don't like your current starters matchup, and Matthew I don't know that I'll be wanting to start Kirk cousins this week against a very good bears defense. Well, you just heard so his pass catchers are banged up here. So you don't love that. You certainly don't like this matchup against the bears defense, and we've talked about this a little bit. I mean cousins makes my hate list. And so we talked about yesterday podcast, but not everyone listens to every single podcast. Right. Since the beginning of last year. The Chicago Bears have had thirteen different home games on Vic Fangio their their offense coordinator, he's been there for longer. But just. Under Fangio last thirteen home games. Going back to the star last year. They've just fifteen touched on passes thirteen games. Fifteen touchdown pass than thirteen home game. Since the start last year. There are top ten defense in terms of touched on percentage and sack percentage win at home over the last two years again, you think about Kirk cousins who since week five is the number twenty one quarterback and fantasy. You know, he hasn't. He hasn't been great from a fantasy perspective we expect Dow cooked to be a full go here. And so on the road and a tough divisional match up. Don't you see a little more, you know, a much more balanced offense here. Now, you've got banged up pass catchers and a tough match-up boil boy. Yeah, I Kirk cousins make the hate list. I'm taking the under on his projection here. You know, he's my number sixteen quarterback for the week. And that's after Wilson and Rogers have been removed from the rank are we underselling Mitch Trubisky doesn't even crack the consensus top ten after a ridiculous six game stretch. And that was after the six touchdown game. He had against Tampa. We talked about this. I mean, this was this is sort of crazy throw the the six on game against heavy came in week four. Okay. And throw that out. You're like adds a fluke. It's Tampa Bay done count on counter. Okay. Starting in week five from week five on on a points per game basis. No quarterback and fantasy football has been better than Mitchell Trubisky. Yeah, he's been nothing short than. Yeah. Why not is my question. I have a ten I'm the highest of us three higher. I think for me the concern is Vikings defense right into form and being much better of late. Yeah. I mean only twice this season has a quarterback thrown multiple touchdown passes against the Vikings only twice Jared Goff. And Carson Wentz is Mitchell Trubisky in that realm. He might be. But I don't think. So I mean, I don't think he's there. I certainly don't think he's there from an NFL quarterback. Stan but differs in rushing, right? Rushing. And that's that's that's the argument there. So you know Vikings to allow a touchdown pass on a legal two point four percent pass attempts since week five their defense has been so good. So it's just how much rushing do you get a Trubisky, and that's what you're really banking on

Wish all he does for that company stepping away from the company so all the best Roman reigns there. And I'm sure I'll be talking about that this week on Tuesday. Wrestling Tuesday, part of my podcast that I do for under the hood with childhood. Glad you're with this. Here's we talk bears. Three one two three three two ESPN three three two three seven seven six phone number as the bears lose to the New England Patriots thirty eight to thirty one. We asked on the poll question, we're asking the lines as well is your letter grade for the bears to the first six games of the season. Fifty percent of you say see forty three percent of you say Bs. So it's pretty close between the CNBC. It's not a it's not a D. It's really a B minus two a C. It's three and three your five hundred. I mean, I mean, you can make five hundred sound how you want. If it wasn't for this play. If it wasn't for this happiest the the Packers. If it wasn't for these plays against the Miami Dolphins. If it wasn't for those plays against the patriots yesterday. Bottom line is is that those losses. But there are wins. There as well. And as I mentioned in our first hour, I'm looking to be wrong about the bears. Seventy nine is not bad when you have a first year coach and you're trying to dig out from underneath. I'm just hoping for better for this bears team that maybe they're better than I think, but we have to see as the season progresses. See how they're going to work out. I think that what I've seen for the bears. The first six games is similar to. Maybe what you see is that there's some improvement there with the offense. But it's still a long way to go because there are so many different wrinkles with this offense. And you look at the defense the defense look played well early you see how the defense is playing when Khalil Mack one hundred percent. This is not just a Khalil Mack defense there other guys defensively to need to step up as well. It's not Leonard Floyd defense. Others have to be able to get to the quarterback. Maybe it happens against Sam darnold on Sunday. We'll see. But I just when I saw from the bears defense last couple of games reminded me of lovey at the end. And really a lot of the John FOX era in which there is a lot in between there. We're after the the kickoff is there and the the opposite team is settled Lynn there's a lot of lot of plays in the back of the linebackers in front of the secondary cash cash over and over again big plays missed tackles that can't happen. Can't happen. So I I'm I'm I don't care if you're a team that's not just for the playoffs or not. That's gotta get better. So we're talking to you about this on the spirits Monday. Three one two three three two ESPN three three two three seven seven six is our phone number some thoughts from Mitch Trubisky. There's a lot of under throws and as a mistakes made by Trubisky. He just thought he played all right in yesterday's performance. If the patriots. All right made some plays here. And there we're moving the ball offense. But then you just go back to those given the ball away the Turner assumptions and not that I thought they were bad decisions or anything or bad throws. Just fifty fifty balls and the credit goes from making plays. But we got to continue to take care of the football. That's on me. But we didn't have the balls offense. Probably way we battled which gotta make sure that we just come closer together and get better from the experience and and go back to work this week because it takes all three phases and all eleven guys at the same time on each and every single play. So thought we did some good things. I thought I played all right. And just gonna watch the film and see what we can do even better feel like I left some completions out there. Immediately. You come back. You look at the completion percentage that you just want to complete every throw you you go out there. But I thought I gave him my my team a chance to win. We are close on the last play. But like I said before it's a combination of plays throughout the game. Which you gotta make sure that we continue to get better as an offense. I thought we did some good things today. But we just gotta make sure that we continue to clean up clean up. Our mistakes be even better on third down in the red zone. Continue to move the football and take pressure of our defense and special teams and make sure we're getting better in those areas. Well, so keeping proving as a team three one two three three two ESPN's are full number. Your letter grade for the bears in the first six games of the year. Greg in stream would on ESPN without Greg. Hey, how you doing? Thanks for taking my call. Thanks for your call. So my letter rate is a sea and to start off by head the bears at the beginning of season at six and eight then they got Khalil Mack. I went to seven and nine then after the first couple of games, and like, oh, maybe there in eighteen and the reason at the C is there. They're making a lot of the same stakes over and over and a say into games, they're not learning from their mistakes like miss tackles last against Tampa, you clean that up. And then you see a whole bunch of the patriot. Same thing for Mitchell Trubisky miss. This passes overshooting under throwing and then passes in the end zone where he doesn't see defender. I mean, those are the reasons I think they're they're not learning from their previous mistakes. All right. So you had them at six eight and one apparently a tie was going to be in that mix as well. All right. My friend. I'm glad you checked in Greg. I appreciate your phone calls. Some good thoughts there. He leaves line. Open three one two three three two ESPN's our phone number Mike in Lakeview with Jonathan owners. We talked bears on ESPN one thousand Michael, hey, how's it going? I'm just I'm confused. How people are getting a B if we're three and three, but I don't know. Aside from that. I give the bears or be right now. We're we're we're barely getting by. You know, we're barely passed. And we're three and three. I went to the game on Sunday. I was there. And I saw things that the coach didn't see I saw an injured Khalil Mack out there. Just basically like a pond I saw we let Tom Brady do whatever he wanted in the back young out and he made a lot of passes. We gave them time. I saw sloppy special teams which I haven't seen in a long time. You can't excuse special teams ball on that one kick return has to feel was wide open. I don't know where the coaching was on that. Or what special teams play that was? So I've seen a lot of negatives and three and three. And I mean, that's the record three and three is five hundred percent. So I give us a D. We're barely. We're barely squeaking by right now. And we're almost to the halfway point. And we're at risk of repeating last year over again. So fifty percent back in school was failing record, right? Yes. It was. I just graduate. You I see if you get fifty speech. You might be at her about give him a d a d for NFL curb. But if I don't know what school they went to the fifty fifth is not good go flames bike. Go flames. I don't know, man. I they played good last year. When I was there flames, you say go there, you go buddy. That was that really was the hallmark of flames fan there. Go flames. We really didn't play. Well, that Larry we could have played better at Fort Wayne game, usually the the laments from the literally go flames, you know. The yearly could have won the horizon last year. He'd be another beer bartender is usually when hot is it literally put this on the poll Felix at ESPN one thousand do you see things that Matt Nagy doesn't see? Yes. Or no. Mike Mike from Lakeview said he was at the game. And he saw things that Matt Nagy did not see on film. Three one two three three two ESPN is our telephone number John and Juliet would Jonathan hood here on ESPN one thousand here on this beer down Monday. Hello, john. Hey, how you doing for taking my call? You know, I'm doing we're we're we're three and three staring into the jets game. You know what I'm doing? I know you don't want though Brady didn't walk in the league and was a Super Bowl champion to begin with Pfizer some stuff. So you know, what I I give them a c plausible because at least offense has some kind of program. That is almost reminiscing. What New England does not too many teams have them. I don't wanna be the giants right now. At least at least they have a little bit assaulter role in the right direction. So I mean, don't let's not get down on Brady didn't come in. And just went Super Bowls. It took a while before. He did I understand. But I think that when you on this city, you have to call it the way you see it. Meaning that if there's some good and some bad see, that's the thing. This is not a D effort. I understand I understand Mike from Lakeview. He's the fan. So of course, he he sees things with the glass half empty. But what I'm saying is is that there's some five hundred the way, I look at it is there's some good and some bad like this. You're right. It could be the giant. It could be a bad situation. It's not usually this first year teams when a coaching staff looks at his roster and says man, there's a lot guys can't play on this roster. We cleaned up. And we got to get better for your two year three or four. Here's something that I think that I see that. Matt Nagy doesn't see he didn't see that that Josh Bellamy. And Dion SIMS should not be on this roster.
Rob Gronkowski not on Patriots' flight to Chicago
"That's going to free up roquan Smith to have other responsibilities for that bears defense, Jordan. I gotta tell you. I think without rob gronkowski. This makes the bears a lot more enticing for for picking a winner there. Also, the bears come off a devastating loss last week where they really gave the game away. And I think I think Chicago is is it a really fascinating point of their season in the sense that they they they basically have everything you want in a defense with Khalil Mack. Obviously is the emphasis to everything they have a young quarterback in in Mitchell Trubisky who's who's played quite well at one incredible game, but really has has been solid, and they have a dynamic runner into recalling does kind of everything. So there's Vega foreign to Chicago. They're all of a sudden right back in it. And really they've been in it all year in the NFC north. I I would say there's more pressure on on on the patriots. I know the see isn't the garland of the NFC, but you know, Miami's foreign to the jets could be four and three and New England without gronkowski. If you look over the years Brady's numbers have always taken a dip. And the fact that this game
"mitchell trubisky" Discussed on Fantasy Football Today
"It was a great job bio Obama Trubisky. They're still gonna win the division. Help. Yeah, it's a bad division Mitchell. Trubisky. Miami is his opponent this week. They allow the second fewest fantasy points. A quarterbacks butcher Bisky is coming off a fifty five point game before the by. He's forty two percent owned. Do you feel any need to own Trubisky recipes and no two quarterback leagues on well, okay, fine. But other than that one quarterback leagues now, yeah. I mean, if if you're in a league where Jameson and allies own Derek Carr zones, I would star in this week against Miami. If I had drew Brees on a by when she rather Baker, I'd rather have Mitchell Trubisky. I'd rather Baker okay. And we got case keenum again, like you gotta be. I don't know how that's because the Rams they've been terrible the last two weeks against quarterbacks, three weeks, three rivers at twenty one points. That's terrible. Well, I mean, just in terms of their overall production allowed to quarterback? Yes, it's eight touchdowns no interceptions last three weeks? Yes. I believe for the Rams it and CJ Beth has said to solid games, twenty three fantasy points, twenty fantasy points last two games. His Accoring bay on Monday night. So with keenum in Bethany, got guys are gonna be chasing points. But let's be honest. Most of our fantasy owners are not going to be relying on those guys drop candidates. Alex Smith, Blake Bortles, Derek, Carr. What about Carson Wentz? How drop Ables Carson Wentz you know, just playing it week by week. He's got the giants this week on Thursday. I'd rather have Jameis. Oh yeah. Yeah. All right. But let's say. Let's say you don't have. Let's say you can't get James or let's say you wanna get a running back. I mean, how drop -able is Carson Wentz in general ten team leagues. If you wanna drop, Utah, should've done that for the sorted, but he's got twenty three fantasy points in each of his last two games. Yeah, get better. I don't think you should. It's not one of those sick of looking at your face off. My team kind of drops. It's well. I wanna go pick up one of the stud running backs off waivers this week, and the most likely drop candid that won't get picked up. So fast would be my backup quarterback. That's went so by Carson and don't drop Andy, Dalton. I know he had a bad game against dolphins, but love the schedule Pittsburgh at Kansas City. Tampa Bay then a by then the saints. So four, good matchups. Next five weeks, of course, just in defensive. Any new didn't he averaged eight yards per attempt. He had a bad fancy day because his team score two touchdowns. Yeah. Two running backs. So there are three guys who are owned in more than sixty five percent of leagues that we haven't mentioned throw in nine high high sixty six percent owned, but the three that I was gonna talk about to us Allen seventy nine percent to Rico and seventy nine percent below Powell seventy seven percent. Who's your favorite.
"mitchell trubisky" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"We were talking about the NFC north, and we were rounding out that conversation. I wanna bring it back. Let's let's keep talking about the bears because they don't want us any surprise us today. But they definitely played like they haven't played you know, these last three weeks. So are the bears much better than we thought. Or is this the game that we saw today against the boxes is just something that was unexpected. I didn't see this team being three and one after the first quarter of the season last couple years. The cupboard has been better offensively and John FOX not an offensive. Coach. So you bring in your your your Matt Nagy who's supposed to be which Sean McVay is Jared Goff would Andy Reid was to Patrick homes, Patrick Mahomes. So now that there's this offense of sparked in this team with the top ten defense. And then you add Khalil Mack days before the season begins. I thought this was a seven or eight one team before all that this may be win team. And you start out three to one you. You you start first quarter you start out pretty good. But if Mitchell Trubisky who I had my my reservations about because the first three weeks, he didn't look like a guy that really was confident in Bobby you can speak to this young quarterbacks are praying and hoping that that I read is open. And when it's not you have to scan the field those featuring a little happy, some some mechanically mechanic mechanic things foundation of his of his of his pocket passing was a little bit off. I I like Mitchell Trubisky. I liked them going back to last year. I thought they should've thrown the ball a little bit more with them and throwing them to the lines. And let them make all his mistakes. But right now, if your best friend, you're sitting pretty because you're three and one at the top of the division that you haven't been at the top of it for very very long time. Well, number one, I think a little bit is unfairly put on Mitchell Trubisky was drafted second overall. But they gave up a lot to go up and get him. And that's a big piece of it. So when you look at that everybody puts all that onus on him. Like he didn't ask everybody to give up all this draft capital to go draft him. I thought he was probably a pretty good player wanted to be drafted high. But you always you always compared to all those guys because Ryan pace telling people he's not only better than everybody in this draft. But he's better than the Baker Mayfield. Sam Donaldson the next strap as well. And so when you give up all their capital, like something if you only paid a dollar for a sandwich, you'll expect that sandwich to be very good you pay twenty bucks for that sandwich. You better expected explosion of flavors in your mouth, the Brennan better be Moi's. Everything is better. Be there. The warm the warm Patty what the nice cold lettuce flavor exposing carpenter. Can't be. This is the dollar burger. I got I got this guy in the fourth round. I didn't think about quarterbacks in terms of sandwiches before everybody just broken down to me that I needed and I'm hungry. Dallas sandwiches. Hundred here. That evening games. The bare schedule close lost the Packers game that they were up in big Aaron says, it's miraculously recovery after cluele MAC was just turned everything on its head. They beat the Seahawks who they're okay. This year. I think people realize the cardinals aren't very good. And then the bucks. No one's really sure what's them. So they've got one really good one in there against the Packers divisional foe. They've got the dolphins coming in the good news for the bears is they've been at the bottom. So they're playing schedule. That's a that's a fourth finishing schedule for their division. And so they've got the Vikings in there. You've got the Packers in their alliance. Who of looked pretty good even though they lost today. The Cowboys who's got the least amount of questions. I think is the the question for this division like Aaron Rogers and his and his mobility, obviously, it's hindered with that. Great to sprain the running game. I don't know why they don't get the ball to Aaron Jones more defensively. Are there? Enough playmakers is clay Matthews going to go a game without getting the roughing the passer. Call so in the Minnesota Vikings offensive line is questionable at best. And the defense without Everson. Griffen him going through what he's going through. There's a lot of questions. So at the top of that. I don't think the Detroit Lions are in the class of the of the Packers of the Viking. So at the top of that division. I guess your ass. Who has the least amount of questions? Go ahead. Questions and I would probably say it's the Vikings. The problem is the question that the Vikings have has the hardest. It's the most difficult to answer with the offensive line. That's the one that there is no easy and can't upgrading season upgrading season scheming, it up as tough like in the past Kim can help some of those guys. But in the run game it's going to be difficult to try to provide a lot of help. Now, they're getting some guys back from injury pedal flying their Senator just returned. But I think that you know, they probably have only really one question because I think Everson Griffen. We'll be back at some point this year. And it should be level. The Vikings only have one question. But what is the problem with the Vikings? Because I think if we all sat here in the in the beginning when the season started nobody expected the Vikings to be one to one and here, we are there at the bottom. Well, they're I mean Detroit's at the very bottom, but they're right there with them. With their record. And you say one question, but they seem to be having so much trouble. There's been a lot more leaky than I expected. They've got all pro tight players at every level of that defense. Whether it be ever Everson, Griffen, deniro, hunters and a stud Anthony Barr and Harrison Smith, you look at the points that they've given up. I mean that that bills game really sticks in your car. Because when when you get off to a slow start good teams stemmed that slow star and say, okay, let's get it together at halftime. They never really got back on track. And the Packers game be allowed twenty nine points in a tie. They allow thirty eight points to the Rams that you thought, you know, cousins was the the last finishing touch on that offense. And the the last piece that they needed even though case keenum plate well last year. But you knew that the defense was going to be able to to to not only turn people over, but stop people from scorn, and they haven't done that. So far this season hoping they everybody anticipated that but teams changed from one year to the next guy's age chemistry is probably not quite the same thing is the Vikings played the most difficult schedule of all those teams to start. I mean outside of the bills game that they? Should've won. And they let get away because they never really showed up to play. Rams look like get argue with them and the best teams in the NFL Packers. You know, there are very tough divisional foe and liners when they still Jimmy Garoppolo at the beginning of the season. They played very well today without Jimmy G. So I think it was that bills give they win that. Then there, okay. To one hundred one that's a little bit different than being one one or one two and one where now you're battling. But that division to me because of the quarterback play of Trubisky plays at quarterback. I think you have cousins he may not be the best. But he's very good. Aaron Rodgers who who probably is the best if not we're one of them. Stafford has no help running game has no help. But you saw he can put a team on his back. If gold Tate's healthy and get it done. And so if Mitchell Trubisky elevates himself the teams that are the best in the division are the are the best teams of the best quarterbacks in right now NFC north appears to have four pretty good ones. And I think the AFC north might be pretty close there as well. I'm waiting to see on Mitch. Touchdown game. And I know I'm not, you know, as a Chicago guy not supposed to be saying waiting. But I am waiting because I he will forever. Be compared to the Shawn Watson, Patrick Mahomes. He will forever. Be compared Sam darnold and Baker Mayfield. When you move up one pick and give up the picks that Ryan pace gave up. He's he's never been a guy. That's been scared to go up and get his guy did the same thing with winter Florida's. Well, so when you when you make that move for franchise quarterback because you said, you're you're expecting that twenty dollars sandwich. I'm just waiting and waiting is. Okay. We have to jump on one side of the. But I think waiting is. Okay. Because I see the talent there, and he's supposed to be an accurate passers compared to you know, Alex Smith and drew Brees in terms of his accuracy. I just want to see it happen game in and game out. And maybe maybe today was the start of that matinee and him saying, okay. You guys think that we can't do this for entire game? They put on forty eight points on a on a depleted bucks team. You guys we have a scoring update. The raiders the Browns. Forty two in overtime kicked it with the field goal made it I went for Jon Gruden since November thirtieth two thousand eight congratulations to the writers didn't think they could pull that went out. Well, they did a good job. Putting together a drive at the end of the game. Getting a two point conversion I believe they were down thirty four forty two found a way to tie it up and you'll both teams had a possession. So the field goal one it. Derek Carr was able to do enough in Jon Gruden down up some calls in the Browns defense has been pretty solid this year and the raiders found a way to move the football when they had to say like I mentioned before the game finished sixty four to seventeen they'd been outscored in the second half of games this season. Again, they blew a lead on they had to come back against the rookie quarterback at that. If you're a raiders fan, you happy you finally got a win under this new regime, which also asking some questions about scheming up against a rookie quarterback. Like Baker Mayfield, forty two points. A lot to give up. Well, congrats to the raiders for getting their first win. Congrats to Jon Gruden. Maybe they'll be they're on the up. Now. We'll see we'll see what happens when he gets a four or five win. Somehow. Let's see what happens. All right. Next. We get into the NFC south. This is football frenzy on the ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Give them a viable solution. When they come straight through makeup perfect, wrapping tackle don't just sit there and say that's illegal. It's a ridiculous say they gave me no answers to that..
"mitchell trubisky" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"O'clock. We'll talk more about this cubs SOX game. You want to jump in? Now, they're actually going to another pitcher in the bottom of the eighth inning as Joel Madden. Who said earlier that they're a player short while he's not a pitcher short. He's used Maples Garcia Rosario Norwood done saying, I'm not sure who is bringing in right now that'll be the sixth reliever Jose container. Went five innings giving up five runs on nine hits. He struck out eight. But the story of the game was the White Sox Rinaldo Lopez allowing a run on five hits over seventy struck out. Eight was throwing ninety seven ninety eight miles an hour striking out Kris Bryant with some high heat one of his last out in the sixth inning and pitch. Very very well. He's been doing. Well, he'll if he gets the win he'll be three in his last five starts with a very very miniscule ERA. We'll talk more baseball just all bear. We're talking about the bay. Bears and Mitchell Trubisky seems like fans just you just keep harping on it that the guy. He sucks guy. He's your guy. You're not he's not going anywhere. So either hope that he gets better or I don't know watching other sport. Let's go to Hammond, Indiana. Jeremy you're on ESPN one thousand what's going on. Hey, how's it going? Okay. Jeremy? In regards to Mitchell Trubisky. I'm tired of everybody's saying they want a quarterback right off the bat to come up with four four. That's not going to happen. That's not realistic. I need rookie quarterback that comes into the game is not gonna be able to do what anybody does. They're not going to be Tom Brady right off the bat. They gotta learn and develop. Obviously, you're going to have some games where the quarterback is not doing. Well, you don't need to bring in the rookie and see how he does. But people need to be patient with he came in last year. He had no wide receivers as authors of line was not the best and he barely had a running game. Torn Howard was the Torri. Cohen was dirty. But he didn't really have anybody. So. The end of the year. And I believe you third about Embiid guy that you can rely on to be consistent into the playoffs. I'm tired of every Chicago Bears fan. Taking that he is not going to be anything after only a couple of games in the year. And that's the bothers me. Jeremy, Jeremy, I'm not making excuses for for Trubisky because hey, he should not miss the the the fate route in the back of the end zone and the Packer game to Allen Robinson. He should not have Miss Taylor. Gabriel in the past where Gabriel could've went for forty or fifty maybe yards in the most recent game against Seattle. He's making mistakes. But that's what's expected when you're in a new offense, and you're trying to figure things out. Absolutely. And even in the first game against the Packers. He missed a wide-open. Trae Burton in back of the end zone. Go play rookie rookie quarterbacks. They're gonna make mistakes. But you gotta believe that he's gonna come back and learn and take a look at that game. And be like, oh, I miss him. Oh, I miss that. I gotta work on triple covered Seattle. It can't do that. You know, extended play. You got out of the pocket that was good. But the throw he made was bad. You're gonna make bad. Decision. But you gotta be able to learn and develop from those mistakes and bears fans. Just don't seem to be patient. Now, they certainly don't Jerry. I appreciate the call. That's my biggest thing. And like I said, I'm not blind. Okay. Sure. It'd be nice to see. Mitchell Trubisky throw ten touchdown passes in two games like Patrick Mahomes. Patrick Mahomes, set behind Alex Smith in this offense in Kansas City and earlier this week people have been tweeting. Okay. And texting about a little conversation that was on the sideline with hill and one of the other players from the Kansas City academy. I think it was Helen currently we're sitting on the bench talking about how they liked this offense more because they don't have to think they just go on out there and and run their routes heaven forbid, we ask a professional football player to think I couldn't believe so many people just were taking that and say, well, here's more criticism menagian Nagy had an offense with a player's head to think heaven forbid, you make it a professional athlete have to think that's such a shame. They're not I say this all the time. Because my dad used to say it to me, and it's an insult you probably shouldn't say to a kid. But it stuck with me. And my dad told me once I said, something I thought this. I thought that he's in listen think is not good for you. When you're not used to it. Apparently, these some of these players in the NFL and not used to thinking, and they want to just go on out there. Run the routes and turn around. There's the ball. I'm going, and I couldn't believe so many people were were Harvard on that criticized nag it's like matinee comes in and bears fans and again, not all of them. But there's a big percentage bears fans doing nothing but criticizing him. Do you? Remember what you've had here. The last couple of years to remember. Dick Gerard, and do you? Remember, all the other coaches, you've had here you're ever John FOX, do you? Remember all your complaining give everybody a chance. I mean, it's just it's so frustrating after just two games to call out, your biscuit. Now, they explained the guy. In the back of the end zone. They explained a wide open. Trade burton. He was the third read things happen quickly and football. Okay. He looks as I read looks at his second Rita while. He's doing that. There's a wide open guy in the end zone. He didn't see him that time. He does the odds are he's covered. Those things happen. It looks really good. I mean, it looks really bad out a still picture. But if you didn't see in the still picture, maybe we look a lot different to you. So that's my biggest thing I want to give Mitchell Trubisky a chance he's in an offense this year. They're still trying to figure it out there haven't used to recall nearly as much as they need to use Cohen. I've got a number here. Cohen with nine rushes for thirty three yards and four receptions for thirty three yards. He's got he's got it touch the ball more. He's one of the guys you want to get the ball in his hands. Jordan Howard, not running the ball enough. They're throwing throwing some short passes, and we have found out that Mitchell Trubisky has a guy that he's comfortable with. Okay. And that's Allen Robinson. We didn't Seattle Robinson the whole preseason. And in throw the ball to him. He ran out. He ran out there. A couple of times, you know, that was nice, but. Very very comfortable. It seems Mitchell Trubisky is with Allen Robinson short passes sideline routes things. Like that. Hopefully, it'll continue let's go back to the phones. Three one two three three two three seven seven six. Let's talk a little bit of baseball. Will you right back the bears conversation? Tom on the north side. You're on ESPN one thousand eight time. I always a pleasure hearing you on your especially when you're by yourself. Okay. Listen with the socks really pushing the cubs faith in a today. And this terrible thing with the Addison Russell if the cubs were to get swept by the socks. Would you be feeling bad because I know as a lifelong fan, I wouldn't see I think the cubs a wind up winning anyway. But I'd like to see a little little suspense before the end. How about you? We appreciate the content. This is all the White Sox fans have right now. Okay. We we're looking forward to a rebuild and the rebuilds continuing. This was one of the years. The the initial years of the rebuild. We see Moncada you gotta RBI right handed. He's got three hits today. He did this last year where he was hitting the ball late in the season and got us all geeked up, and then he came out and may set the record for strikeouts in single season by a player if the White Sox sweep the cubs. I still feel the cubs are going to go to the postseason. You know, they're they're not gonna if they don't win the division. They're not gonna fall out of the wildcard situation. You look at it. The brewers are two and a half in. It'll be two games back after this. And they will have played the same number of games. So we'll see the brewers really need to make a push. If the White Sox did sweep the cops would make it really interesting when the pirates come to town next week. And then I think it's the cardinals come into town for the final three games of the season. Those would be some interesting games because a cardinal still feel they have a chance to. To get into a wildcard spot and that. To keep wildcard spot because you look at what's going on right now in baseball. And there there are some great races as we're continuing to go on down the stretch, people don't think don't look at it enough. He gives you your socks fan or cub fan and things like that the right now Saint Louis game half game and a half ahead of Colorado. So the games next week or hugely important to Saint Louis. So we'll see how it all plays out three one two three three two three seven seven six. Let's go to Indiana, and Eric you're at ESPN one thousand. Hey, eric. Hey, are you doing I'm doing well? How about you not too bad? But. Is that the defense is going to carry on Trubisky is gonna do great love the guy. Does very well at the Chicago Bears. But. Carry us for the next two years, and you might see the Super Bowl, but they're not gonna win it because so wherever and you're going to see some other quarterbacks that offend me wartime. Those teams are going to wet. It's all part of the stage that the NFL perceives for us. Eli manning might win another one. It's all set up, sir. Yeah. You know, I love affairs. All that. There's always been a fair said the defense off. But. Eight. He's got a he's got all the learn. But he is on elva talent. Well, he has arrogant. He's very athletic. We appreciate the call. I don't know what you were talking about really about the NFL spears. Yeah. Yeah. Conspiracy theory is sentencing old quarterback. Yeah. I mean, I I don't necessarily see that happening. And the one thing about the defense. I want to talk about this later on. We'll talk about it with Kevin fish pain. And maybe I'm the only one I know you're were saying that earlier today you want to see a complete game from the defense. And I know you look what the defensive done in the first half of both games has been amazing. They've given up thirty five fourth quarter points. Now they gave up three touchdowns for the Packers. And that cost him that game. And they gave up points to Seattle in the fourth quarter. And f I know big if if prince amukamara has made that interception. The Seahawks are going down. They have a chance to score there. That's still a game. So I want to see the bears be able to put teams away with the defense. Now, obviously the offense needs to step up and help out..

Tweet so wine fingers wasn't out on the, tweeting but I sent some text messages all throughout the. Staycationing it was, glorious but it's good to be back today and stopped by Gran and western liquors and give them a shout. Today all, right and right on. Cue I think this one's gonna be pretty simple for, you but we should ask it, anyway Hey, guys would you rather have Edison Russell's defense and poor. Offense in the, lineup poor Daniel Murphy's good offense and subpar defense well I'd rather have Daniel Murphy at second because you could. Then have, havi assure why do. People say hobby could indeed even a better shortstop and, it could be as past position And it's why hobby is so damn valuable I love, Addy's. Defense I am done with him for now offensively I am, shocked at the level of ineptitude of him with the back these days with. His lack of ability to drive the ball with his lack of and every. Time he does finally something good he'll either get picked off or. Get tagged out somehow. Someway just like, when, he tried to extend the. Double and triple, which I was in favour for finds a way to pull his hand off the bagging get called, out first and third one, out Willie, at, the play I'm gonna get picked off at, third, base, after what he double then he double d so I mean I I'm, good with this, shape this thing up he's? A, professional hitter and especially the top of the order where they've lacked was going to say especially with how the last let's say two three weeks how the hitting has been anemic Exactly And with how strong the rest of that infield defense. Is I think it makes more sense to have the. Bat, Yep Me too okay this is off the sports realm would you rather live the rest of your life with one. Foot wearing a rollerblade or have won t Rex sized. Arm I think t Rex that small Rex size, yeah winter t. Rex arm though because. Let's say in relative to us so, like one human Iraq size are So, you have a smaller Chinese alligator arms Get her arm I think you'd, adjust much more quickly to the shorter arm and you would having, a rollerblade on one foot at all times albeit you probably get really good at rollerblading one foot or would you then. Just. Always on a second. Rollerblading be rollerblading everywhere that's a good point. Just rollerblade every. Put on an extra roller it's not unfair you probably have. To clear it with your HR office leading Yeah like you just. Be on rollerblades. Everywhere you go I would say look I've got an issue I, only, played for a fight Equal. It out it probably embrace you only our. Listeners can. Think of a quiet that's terrific Would you I can't believe it's? Gone this far but met. Gabe wants to know. Sylvia would you rather have Mitchell Trubisky here. Blake Bortles Blake portal's, Mitchell I'd rather Mitchell Trubisky course potential? Of upside Yeah just a? Yeah absolutely did you see? This one that just came. In would you rather Mitchell Trubisky these are crazy to me would you? Rather, Mitchell, Trubisky of. Joe flacco career or Dan Marino's career yeah Unless you, simply, asking. A Super Bowl title or basically considered the all? Time greatest passer without a? Super Bowl title is that. What he's presenting to us yeah I would think that's what he's saying? Because How would you turn down Marino with like. You would still take Marino I mean? I, guess there's a bears fan you would. Want Interesting yeah Dan Marino's career to play out because look we. Always say Aaron Rodgers net is only one one of. Only one? Only. One magic being great and never winning any, joins a fan I would. If I'm Trubisky I would want Dan Marino's career. Interest yeah and your hall of. Famer just thinking about Christie become, much more fun it'd be to watch the Dan Marino? Last quarterback Joe flacco I feel one Ron I know what, you're saying Sylvie but what do we always here in the sound. Bites you hear about that the team first mentality from every quarterback how you just wanna win winning is more important than everything else and I know. What. You're saying that they would, say, that on the radio because they would be deemed not a team player if they set it sure you went? To every said look would you rather be a middle of the road? Average quarterback, that all of a sudden flares. In the postseason Eleven touchdowns zero interception and you win a title and crippled the salary cap right You. Can be one. Of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game ever went any come on, now Russillo? Always says it would you. Rather be Barclay or Robert Aures, career now he's got. Multiple championships seven right I think Orientals have it I don't know if it's seven maybe five or six we'll check that It's a lot This one's good would you rather see hawk Harrelson have to be a cubs fan for a season or David Caplan be a cards fan. For a year Oh man one. Eight seven championships for Ori by the way seven you're right now are good job I think hawk is a cubs fan is more entertaining Him. To to root for the cubs all of a sudden Let me take JD Addison Russell's, the best defensive shortstop For sure yeah you gotta go talk just because of how polarizing his campaign Jean shorts and timberlands and cap, would just be telling you like like he'd. Be like it wouldn't even. Be a flip like it not. Even a big deal just be part, of this year they see might be via cardinal's fan happy to get them out of cubs fan. Base for a year to start telling me to relax So maybe three your, own satisfaction it's it's cap and that sense. Would you rather be I. Don't know if you guys have. Done this or not would you rather, be itchy or sticky for the rest of your life we always get okay look or something else I don't? Remember if it. Sticky.

Why you're sticky Yeah Could be easier to fall. Asleep if your eight year sticky can't fall asleep when I'm like sweaty and, sticky that's tough for me to fall. Asleep been HEI feel like you'd be losing your mind sticking to. The she. Is Sticky like it's sweaty I'm, thinking sticky is like just your hands. Have like glue or some sort of everything though substance not just. Your hands I guess sticky If you laid on a sheet, for the evening you, fall asleep eventually like wrapped in that, thing strangle, you Right if your, itchy though you're just can't count on One more Would you rather get hit by, top speed Michael kopech fastball or do the combo naptime time shower tame chats with cap completely in the nude That one I don't? Wanna get hit by Michael kopech fastball is, creepy is all that stuff is what was he doing when I was off to the motivational stuff Our big. Cat to service now this cap, of a service where he he records motivational speeches for.

"We'll have roquan, Smith in at some point envision him anchoring defense but on the other side of the ball what will the hiring Matt. Nagy, off. Into the minded coach do for. The, development of a second, year, quarterback Mitchell Trubisky Well I it's gonna be it's gonna, put him in a position very successful assuming he learned the offense quickly and I think he's going to be growing pretty Out of Chicago Bears the, number of interception little Fiske's been throwing in practice Obviously a lot of that as you. We'll get overflown everybody reports on every single throw you're watching the sausage, there but if that those growing pains and it probably expect that they will there's growing Season then you get to a. Situation where does the young man's confidence get challenged cetera et cetera so, I think Very creative offense The formation of the line of scrimmage that pre snap and all that Probably throwing stuff at Mitchell Trubisky right now in camp and then at some, point, in a couple of weeks in his coaches will sit and say okay What does he like what what can handle right, now Down complete on the former make sure that they're getting him. Stuff you can handle and save some of the others but I think what you'll see is a lot, more when, you saw Trubisky last year they were, kinda you know kinda riding the brakes with a model and there was sort of afraid, to. Let them do too? Much for fear of turnovers etc I think that Nagy all off season and installing, a lot, of stuff that's the creative I think, you'll see you'll see a lot more fun for Mitchell Trubisky assuming he can keep the, turnovers They have been here in Chicago like, I am going to radio every day, and you hear, different ends of, the spectrum when people try to project what. These, bears? Are going to. Be, a lot of optimism. Given that your quarterback the franchise airbags in, his, second year a new quarter a. New, coach Mary offense of mine and some, new weapons sorry what, the headliner down Robinson people.
