Re: Spring game on Saturday....what will you be looking for the most?

I listened to the last half hour and Spack was very excited with the Spring practices. He said it was the best Spring in the ten years he's been here. Anyone at the scrimmage should give us an opinion of what they saw. The new turf starts going in tomorrow! I'm just going to guess the overhauled co...

Re: Spring practice right around the corner....who is pumped?!!

I think our fan base is smart enough, for the most part, to figure out an upside down Reggie head and not cheer against the home team. Maybe by the next change out hologram logos will be a reality and both sides can not be confused by what they are looking at holograms ?? ......... that's even bett...

Re: Spring game on Saturday....what will you be looking for the most?

Offensively .... WRs and QB/pass game. I have no concerns anywhere else on offense. Defensively ... most worried about DL, but simply looking forward to seeing if defense is coming together and can hold their own. I plan to be patient .. just need to be ready by September. Lastly .. OC Beathard. Not...

Re: ESPN+ and the future of MVFC on ESPN3

I didn't read up on this one much yet, but there was decent thread on AGS .. 7 pages: http://www.anygivensaturday.com/showthread.php?204524-ESPN My biggest general concern is one of "inertia" ... that is, having to sign up for something different, along with having to pay for it ... this human natur...

Re: Cam Meredith

It's nice to see that everyone who covers the Bears both on radio and in print seems to agree that the Bears really shit the bed on this one. One guy suggested this means the Bears may still take a WR in the first round (though by trading down- not at 8). it would be different story if they had som...

Re: Cam Meredith

makes no sense .. they discovered and developed this guy and could have had him on the cheap for 2.9m or get a 2nd round pick .. now they get nothing !!!!!!!!!! Good for Cam ... hope he kills it in the bayou and makes Pace look like an idiot. Bad for Bears .. losing confidence in Pace .. wtf is he t...

Re: Spring practice right around the corner....who is pumped?!!

And my confidence that OC Beathard will figure out how to build his system around his personnel, and for me, that means Kolbe will finally get a chance to show what he can do. Certainly, the combination of OC Beathard, RB group, OL group, and a little more talent (unproven) at WR group .. all will ...

From my perspective, it's less Martian-speak and more Tarzan-speak.

Examples...

Jane...good. Tarzan...good. Lion...bad, etc.
Disagree ... Jane not good ... Jane hot.

Plus you need to mis-spell something.

Re: Spring practice right around the corner....who is pumped?!!

TV cameras will always be on the west side. Sun becomes a big issue. They can shoot into the west. You don't want Reggie upside down on TV. Although Reggie is upside down for the home stands, the new East side looks, much, much better for TV. Enough with the logic .. flip the bird was about so much...

sigh. I will suspend the fight to flip the bird until the next turf change in 2040.
sometimes genius just isn't recognized in it's time, no matter how obvious.

Re: Cam Meredith

Cam is a favorite of Pace. He allowed him to test the market knowing he'd get more money than the 2nd round 2.9 tender. Pace also knows he's matching this offer. This was a way for Cam to get max money at this stage of his career. Pace and the Bears did Cam a solid. Had they given him a 2nd round t...

but on a more serious note, give Kolbe a chance under a real OC .. then re-draw your conclusions.

Re: Cam Meredith

Great for Cam !!!! Bad for Bears ... they had a chance to virtually lock him up for 2.9m according to this article. Now they have to match 9.6m with 5.4m guarantee to keep him. If they know his knee recovery is not going well, maybe that was smart move by Bears .. but if not .. then that was very d...

Re: Spring practice right around the corner....who is pumped?!!

Nice to hear all the positives .... but I doubt our DL has improved, and would assume our DB group is work in progress ... we have the bodies and depth, just need people to step up and prove themselves. But I can imagine our LB group being very good from the start, despite losing 2 regulars (Holm, B...
