Re: Turf Updates

I could see why you might see it that way. To me, it looks like the bobcat on the left side is almost vacuuming or sweeping the pellets and getting rid of them in that line you seen in the middle of the image. Look at the turf behind that bobcat versus the turf in front of it. Maybe it is like swee...

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

Good info from lot of good sources .. even the nearly departed TR resurfaced after a much deserved offseason break. My main takeaway is that it appears our DL group, particularly DT, looks to be in pretty good shape considering how much we have lost since a year ago. Still remains to be seen how we ...

Olineman: Himmilman O'Day Maggeson Mikkelson Kanaugh Hirsch Rientz Anderson Lots of experience with this group. Plus some nice young guys not even mentioned here. We are deep.

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

RBs- wow, add Birch to the mix, we might have not just two of the best with Robinson & Smith, Birch looked sleek and fast. This is the strength 9f this team. Good report. I agree about the RB’s. All 3 are impressive. Worried about WR’s. Schnell was in a sling. Defense....no Horton or Brees. So the ...

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: 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: 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...

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...
