DaBearsBlog is On Vacation!

DaBearsBlog is On Vacation!

I don't take a lot of time off over the course of the year from this site but the next week will be such a time. I am taking my drinking & eating talents to the great American city of New Orleans until Monday morning.

imo

DBB will return on March 11th to set the stage for the start of the free agency period on March 12th. Will the Bears make a splash for a starting tight end or offensive lineman? Will Phil Emery repeat his maneuvers of 2012 and add quality depth on the defensive side of the ball? Will all things remain quiet at Halas Hall?

See ya Monday.

PS. Should anything of note happen, I urge you to follow @DaBearsBlog on Twitter. That's the only place I'll be for the next four or five days barring huge breaking news.

  • I was just thinking the other day how big of a mistake the whole Kellen Davis experience was. I was convinced he was going to be a 40 catch 500yd guy for us and big in the red zone.

    The reality is now that either because he sucks or was playing with a lower back injury all season long that his lack of production is forcing the Bears to address the TE position in 2013 instead of kicking the shit out of the OL problem.

    I want a solid option that can exploit a defense focused on Marshall and Forte. I want a guy that can remind me of Dezzy in the seam tearing it up for 15 to 20 at any time. I want defenses to dread 2nd and 3rd downs because they don't know where we are going with the ball.

    We all know with Alson down in Florida with Marshall that those 2 are going to be fucking sick this coming year. I feel like Bennett will come up strong as well. Forte will see his receiving numbers jump again. The issue for me is TE.

    2 questions:

    1. For TE's who are your top 3 choices either from draft or FA?

    2. Who is on your list of top 5 racks of all time either real or fake?

  • With Kellen it's apparently an attitude problem. We all saw the circus catches two years ago when every third ball he caught was six points. We know what he has done and is capable of doing. But something is not well within Mr. Davis' mind, and there were those whispers out of Halas hall that he is not entirely genuine in his work ethic. Lovie kept it all hush hush, as was his M.O..

    I don't think we need to worry about which TE we get, we need to worry about what kind of personality they have. A Singletary or a Chad Johnson.

    Kellen Davis will be good somewhere else one day ... IF he sorts his head out.

  • TE's
    1.Keller
    2.Ertz
    3.Cook

    Racks (not best of all time but these made my memorable list)
    1.Christina Hendricks (love redheads with huge boobs)
    2.Olivia Hussey (Romeo and Juliet) (first boobs I ever saw on film)
    3.Phoebe Cates (everyone's top 10)
    4.Kate Upton/Jessica Simpson (sheer size and heft/natural)
    5.Halle Berry (defy time, space, gravity, QM)

  • Nice list Johnny. Not a fan of redheads for a few reasons. The problem with huge boobs is eventually they end up with huge asses. Not always but usually. Everyone loves Phoebe Cates from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. She still looks great. Kevin Kline's a lucky guy. Halle Berry, yes please. She must have the worst taste in men. Almost all of them have treated her like shit and hit her. Crazy.

    I used to be into models back in the '80's so Helena Christensen and Laetitia Casta are faves. Also, Annette Haven (a porn star back in the '70's). I saw Kelly Preston's boobs once in a film from the '80's and they were awesome. Too bad they went to waste on Travolta. Susan Sarandon had great boobs back in the day. Keeley Hazell is still at the top of the list (a page 3 girl from England). Sorry that Keeley is the only current one on the list. Yeah, I'm old.

    Who wants to talk about TE's when there are boobs to discuss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Keller and Ertz? Really? Peas XPlane fellers.

  • In reply to Shady:

    didn't ertz kick the crap out of eifert in the combine? and yes, I know neither will be available in the 3rd. Not schooled enough to know who we can get... I'll just default to NB's pick.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I think it was the other way around. $ or R2 should know.

    I realize it's a long shot, but I'd love to land Gonzalez. I think he'd be a great fit. The other FA TE don't do much for me and would rather draft Eifert or Escobar. I definitely don't want guys with a history of drops, I want guys can catch balls with their eyes closed.

  • In reply to Shady:

    TONY fucking Gonzalez? The 40 year old? common maings.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    The greatest TE of all time? Yeah, that guy.

  • In reply to Shady:

    No 40 year old tight ends please.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    Look at his numbers last season, he was far and away the best TE from the bunch. And at 40, he's probably in better shape than most of these other guys and comes with equal or less injury risk/history. I know it'll never happen, but he'd be my pick.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    Yeah, look at T.O., Randy ... I'm 41 next week. No fuckin way I'm playin' in the NFL, and it doesn't have the joint strain on it that he's got. No fkn way.

    I think Murph mentioned Martellus Bennett - apparently he's been really popular with team-mates in terms of his can-do attitude. No rookie TEs other than as a second project - we need a pro in there next year who won't get pushed around. Tebow.

  • Tebow .... plus a valid TE in case he sucks at it.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Eifert kicked the shit out of Ertz at the combine. MB, not like you to twist that kinda shit up! Need a good dose of puss to clear the mind?

  • In reply to #76 Mongo Murph:

    Hahahahahah! always Murph.

    I mix them up in my head cause they both start with Es and I couldn't have given a smaller fuck than a midget thus far... until it becomes a reality that we'll pass on jones (if still there) in rd2 and take a fucking TE instead.

    But yes, that always helps my man.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Yeah man, Eifert blew away Ertz in the combine, and supposedly is better at blocking too (though I heard conflicting reports on this).

    However, we should keep in mind that Fleener had better numbers than Eifert - plus was seen as a better blocker and overall prospect than Eifert, and he was the first pick in the 2nd.

    TE is much like OG in the draft. Everyone always "mocks" them much higher than they'll actually go.

    For that reason I'm certain we can get a quality TE in the 2nd (If we had a 3rd, that would be ideal).

    Unfortunately for us, early in the 2nd is when the run begins on TEs (Ertz, McDonald, Escobar, Reed) and LT "projects" (Like Armstead, Jones and Menilik this year), but still one should fall to us.

  • Who's the Waddle TE? Who's the guy that will catch the ball in traffic knowing he's going to get creamed - unlike say .... Devin Hester .... who is a corn-rowed vagina that picks up paychecks but is afraid to get hit because he's a little girl. Hey! We could trade him to Carolina!

    And no, not for GirlyThor ....

  • In the draft, I think Escobar is that Witten-type TE who can make those tough catches though won't blow you away athletically (ran a 4.84). Other guys in the draft that are in the same boat are TE Kasa, Fauria and Stoneburner (and a bunch of other TEs which we can get in the 4rth or later).

    Here's the TE synopsis I posted in the previous thread.

    "A decent TE FA sum.

    "Tight end is a position where the Bills had an entrenched starter in Scott Chandler. However, following Chandler’s ACL knee injury in Week 16, his availability is in doubt for training camp and the start of the regular season. With limited depth behind him, especially in the pass catching department Bills GM Buddy Nix has admitted the team is in the market to make an addition.

    The heavy hitters
    Jared Cook – Tennessee – Cook has great size and the physical attributes to be a mismatch in coverage similar to Chandler. Athletic enough to be a downfield threat in the passing game, Cook hasn’t been able to produce in a way that’s fitting of his skill set. But there’s no denying his pass catching and big play ability. Age 25.

    Fred Davis – Washington – Davis is a versatile tight end, but coming off an Achilles injury his physical state will play a large role in what he could command on the open market. Capable of getting consistent separation in the passing game Davis also has the ability to line up as an H-back or on the line. Age 27.

    Tony Gonzalez – Atlanta – He’s 50-50 to retire according to reports and if he does play a 16th season he’s expected to re-sign with the Falcons. Gonzalez has lost a step, but can still find the soft spots in zones and is a go-to guy in the red zone. Age 37.

    Dustin Keller – NY Jets – Another mismatch in the passing game, Keller is more of a split out type tight end. A solid route runner with great hands, Keller can be a go-to guy particularly in the red zone. His athletic ability enables him to make plays despite less than ideal size. His injury history (see: hamstring) is the only drawback. Age 28.

    Middle market
    Martellus Bennett – NY Giants – Bennett is a capable of being an in-line blocker while also athletic enough to make plays in the passing game. Coming off a career-high season in catches (55), receiving yards (626) and touchdowns (5) Bennett is a good mismatch in terms of size and speed. Age 26.

    Anthony Fasano – Miami – The veteran tight end is never going to wow anyone with athleticism, but is a well-rounded tight end that has enough athleticism to make plays and help a passing game. Capable of standing his ground as a blocker, Fasano offers an offense a consistent and durable player. Age 28.

    Brandon Myers – Oakland – Coming off a breakout season with the Raiders (79 rec., 806 yds, 4 TDs), Myers has developed into a solid passing option. A willing blocker that battles, Myers is not a game breaking threat in the passing game, but knows how to find gaps in the defense and make plays. Age 27.

    Leonard Pope – Pittsburgh – With production that’s fallen short of his physical talent, Pope has bounced around the league a bit. A good blocker and route runner Pope is a major mismatch at 6’8”, but is mainly a short area receiver. Pope offers a great jump ball target in the end zone. Age 29.

    Delanie Walker – San Francisco – Another versatile player that offers options in-line and as an H-back. Has even lined up at fullback on occasion. A dependable route runner, Walker gets consistent separation and developed into a reliable third down option for the 49ers. Age 28.

    Veteran options
    Dallas Clark – Tampa Bay

    Chris Cooley – Washington

    Ben Watson – Cleveland

    Possible fits for the Bills
    Martellus Bennett – Bennett is not expected to be re-signed by the Giants. Coming off a productive season the tight end might be on the verge of providing the most consistent play of his career.

    Anthony Fasano – Fasano could be a dependable target in the passing game and offer enough on the blocking side to be a reliable starter.

    Brandon Myers – A young player still looking to improve, Myers could build on his breakout numbers of last season in the right offensive system."

  • If we draft a TE in the 2nd I'm going to be a Packer fan for week one. There's a BUNCH of TEs out there who are big and explosive and get open. We could maybe draft some prospect in rd 5, but we have an entire offensive line to rebuild ladies and gentlemen, not to mention a HOF MLB to replace. I would have zero problem if they took a second rounder on a RB who drops though. Is Bush 100% health-wise? We know about Forte's holidays. Armando is small. RB could be a depth issue for us very quickly come the new season.

    My biggest worry is that they don't address the Mike ... and that they don't draft the guy in the correct round for drafting middle-linebacking legends of the NFL. The only round.

    We need to move up about ten spots too .. .and prepare to draft a linebacker that's light on his feet. Ahem.

    Or just draft a compact Singletary-type :

    Kevin Minter*, ILB, LSU
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 246. Arm: 32.08.
    40 Time: 4.81.
    Projected Round (2012): 1-2.
    3/2/13: Minter) was phenomenal in 2012. The junior was the most consistent player on the Tigers' defense, and that is saying something considering all the NFL talent LSU had on its stop unit. Minter totaled 130 tackles with 15 tackles for a loss, four sacks, five passes broken up, a forced fumble and an interception. He recorded 61 tackles with sack and forced fumble in 2011.

    Minter is fast and hits with authority. He was a real difference-maker for the Tigers. Minter is a good form-tackler with plus instincts. He never hesitates to get physical.

    Minter had a disappointing 40 time at the Combine.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    How about guys who are NFL ready? Brandon Myers. Dreesen /Tamme - surely Denver can't expect to keep them both. James Casey at HOU is their #2 isn't he? Damn, give Tebow 2M a year and I bet he'd be great at TE. Dude weighs 250 already. Good attitude, a winner. Yeah, Tebow for TE.

  • Depends what you (Trestman) wants. Emery and Trestman keep mentioning "move" and "explosive" or "stretching the seams" when they refer to TEs, so I'm assuming they're looking for a Cook type tight end more than a Brandon Myers-type TE.

    In FA, the "seam-stretcher" TEs are.

    1. Cook. VERY athletic with high upiside.

    Downside. Wants about $7-8M per season.

    2. Fred Davis. Also athletic, though not as athletic as Cook, but a bit more polished.

    Downside. Coming off achilles injury and has been busted for PEDs.

    3. Keller. Very similar to Davis except his run blocking isn't as good.

    Downside. Said blocking and also coming off an injury (hamstring).

    The rest of the guys are slower possession type TEs, and if we're going to go down that route, why not stick with Spaeth who actually blocks really well?

    The one TE FA who is a purely possession TE, but very effective, is Brandon Myers. However, his blocking is BAD, and I'm not sure we can afford that with our Oline.

    It just depends if Trestman wants a dynamic playmaker at TE (Cook, Davis, Keller in FA. In the draft, Eifert, Ertz MAYBE Escobar, Kelce and McDonald) or a possession TE (pretty much everyone else).

    We're more than likely out of the market for an "H" TE because of E-rod.

    I'll repost the TE synopsis from the previous thread.

    You play chess NBIT?

    I sorta play chess, which is to say, I play against the computer on my PS2. I don't know if anyone still owns a PS2, but if you do NB, there's this great chess game called "Chessmaster".

    It's programmed with the 100 greatest games of all time, so you can sit there and watch Fisher kick Russian butt move by move (it goes back about 100 years).

    It also has a tutorial which goes from basic, to intermediate and advanced and covers everything from opening moves, to defenses and gambits - opening, middle and finishing. The tutorial is actually hosted by that chessmaster portrayed in the movie "Searching for Bobby Fisher" (the actual player, not the actor).

    It's a pretty cool game and you can probably get it used at Gamestop for like $5 (they stopped making it).

    You should look into.

    I really don't like playing against the computer because Big Blue always whoops me especially if it's anything timed within 10 minutes.

  • I have Chessmaster (there have been several versions over the years) for my PC. Chessmaster is the most commercially successful chess program, but there are actually much stronger programs with more advanced bells and whistles that people get into. The most popular is probably "Fritz." I don't personally own a copy though, I mostly just use websites.

    The chess master in Searching for Bobby Fisher is Bruce Pandolfini, who has written some really good books on chess and some really mediocre ones as well. He wrote the first book I ever read on the subject that really opened my eyes to the game:

    http://www.amazon.com/Weapons-Chess-Omnibus-Strategies-Fireside/dp/0671659723

    As far as following chess, its kind of an interesting hobby and there are lots of people who follow it more than I do. I try to keep up with the top 20 or so players in the world (so called "Super GMs") who frequently play each other in tournaments. A lot of folks like to follow the US championship every year because its more accesible, but I've never really been so into it.

    Chess, much more than football or even futbol, is incredibly political. All of the former Soviet states are heavily involved and there is a lot of KGB style stuff behind the scenes among players and sponsors. Plus there are a lot of developing countries with one or two world class players where chess is a major event because its the only event where the country can be a world title contender.

    The biggest problem with it, for me, is that I don't have one person I'm rooting for. It was really the same in football till I moved to Chicago. When you've got a team, and a group of people you can relate to based on your support of that team, it really makes it a different game.

    To give you an idea of my level... I would not be competitive at any large tournament with serious players - though I might win a round or two. I can consistently beat the Windows chess program on the hardest setting if I pay attention and move slowly. Because that is usually not possible, I play at around level 6-8 and move pretty quickly, so I win maybe 2/3 games.

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    Wow, you're probably more advanced than I am when it comes to chess then. My BIGGEST weakness with chess is impatience and trying some exotic bs move which is the equivalent of doing some Johnny Woo gun trick instead of just going by the book.

    On "Chessmaster" I'm about a rook/bishop when I actually sit there and try. I just feel like the computer has a major advantage when timed. It already has all the counter-moves at hand, while I actually have to think without access to a hard-drive memory.

    What's your take on chess being more imagination or rote memorization?

    To me the computer has proven that it's more about rote memorization (and spacial conception) than imagination, but that's just my personal theory.

  • Your RAM access is way faster than a shit-hot PC, dog. Momentarily.

  • As to imagination vs. memorization... here's my take.

    There are generally three phases to chess. The opening, the middlegame and the end game.

    The opening is when you deploy your pieces initially and the flow of the respective attacks is established, usually the first 10-20 moves. In grandmaster play, the opening is entirely based on prepared moves, up to 20 deep, before someone plays something novel. In amateur play, that number obviously shrinks quite a bit. But the key is, the first part of the game is preparation.

    The middle game is all about imagination. You can play middle game puzzles to learn certain patterns (for example, the king's bishop and king's knight working together to try to fork the queen and king's rook), but generally you have to imagine a brand new strategy every game. Experience helps because you memorize patterns, but a lot of creativity happens here.

    The end game goes back to preparation again. Here, there are few enough pieces that an expert or computer can usually determine the "correct" move. For example, Chessmaster will have a tablebase that tells it exactly what to do in any position of King and Pawn versus King. A grandmaster or powerful computer will have a larger table base, but the key again is preparation.

    So there's my answer.

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    NBIT or Butch, if either of you are interested, I wouldn't mind starting a chess game with you guys. Maybe a website where you make a move or two a day. My only competitor the last 10 years is my brother, and we probably tie half the time. I'm way out of practice, but I would love to play against some new players. I've never been a fast player. A normal game for me is 2-3 hours.

    I've never read a chess book or played a computer, but I thought I was pretty good in college and a few years after. Back in college at Madison I beat a few dorm hall champions one night when I was drunk as a skunk and they were sober. I used to read a lot of military history, especially the Civil War, and try to incorporate some of those strategies into my chess game.

    Both of you guys would probably kick my ass, but I would still be interested in playing. If you are, let me know and I'll give you my email address.

  • In reply to The Fifth:

    I think I'm more at your level Canada.

    I haven't read any books on it, know a few openings, strategies, etc but mostly just played with my friend while taking shots lol

    We should all play. In that game "Chessmaster" tournaments can be created (so if you, Doc, me and NBIT want to play each other, we can online).

    Other than that, not sure how we would do it.

    NB probably knows more about that than I.

  • I'm all for it. Lets see what NBIT says and maybe we can find a site and get some games going.

  • In reply to The Fifth:

    I'm all for it. There is a website www.caissa.com I used to play with that has a correspondence chess feature.

    I think yahoo also has something, but I'm not sure.

    For perhaps a more interesting option, we could post our moves on the blog itself. Do you guys know how to do chess notation?

  • In reply to The Fifth:

    Yeah, MB, I know chess notification, but UGH, imagine doing that with gnome code?!

    1.e4 d5 "Waiting for administrator approval"

    Or the response will end up in another thread or something.

    That site you mentioned, or "Chessmaster" seems like the better options.

    However, if we have an ongoing game going (over days or weeks), then I'd be cool with just posting the moves on here, just not a one game sitting (probably won't go over well during the reg season either lol)

  • In reply to The Fifth:

    My only knowledge of chess notation is "Pawn to rook four". I wish I could find the whole skit.

  • Ah, man, are you kidding me? I posted a thorough list of HOF Boobs (with links) and did it not pass the "administrators"? WTF?

    They were all pics from major magazines like Vanity Fair and FHM.

    Is Big Brother gonna deny you folks the pleasure of my list?

    Man, if Jeff weren't on vacation, I'd write him an email.

  • Rand Paul is filibustering on the Senate floor right now. You can see it on C-SPAN 2. Awesome! That tea-bagging wingnut is protesting the perfectly reasonable idea of the Obama administration that the President has the right to order the assassination of US citizens with drone attacks on US soil without due process. Nothing bad could come from that idea. Of course I'm being sarcastic. Obama has been no better than Bush when it comes to protecting Civil Rights. In fact Obama has expanded the Patriot Act and erosion of our rights. And he's conducted illegal wars. He obviously didn't learn much as head of the Harvard Law Review.

  • 1) Keller
    2) Fasano

    and in no particular order

    Kat Dennings

    Out of curiosity, when would you consider boobs to be too big?

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    good ones DY. Perry and johansson. Forgot perry.

    Never.

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    Ah, yes, I had Katy Perry on my original list (when she appeared on SNF - hot).

    Totally forfto about Johansson, definitely up there.

    Boobs too big? hmmmm...aren't boobs like money - never get enough.

    I think Es are too big, unless the woman is like 6'4 , in which case, sign me up!

  • See cause my gf is an E, and that's perfect for me. Enough for a handful, none going to waste. I'd say anything above that is out the window though.

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    i think the us and europan sizes are different maings... VERY diff.

    You're talking about a big american B or small C. $ is talking about cup runeth over

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    Wow, I think that beats me.

    I think the biggest I ever went out with was double D, but she was only like 5'1, so they looked huge (and were, really).

    I also went out with a 5'11 girl, and I think hers were about double D too, but didn't look it.

    I think it all depends on how they carry it, really. I'm like MB, I'm a boobs man, so I actually wouldn't be surprised if I did come across an E without knowing it on my many adventures, but something like Double Es, perhaps not.

    Also, when they get that big, girls usually become self-conscious about it, and tend to hide them, which is a damn shame. And the ones that don't and let them fly get a lot of attention which a boyfriend can get pissed over. I know when I went to clubs and the girl was all decked out in a skirt and low top, I couldn't leave her for a second without some dude ogling her and trying a move. And as they get older, they ponder "reductions" because of back problems, so a guy would have to take all that into consideration.

  • My ex-wife was that body type - 5'0" , 95 lbs with twenty of it on her chest. You're right about the attention and she wasn't adverse to flaunting it, either. When we went grocery shopping, I used to hang back a bit and watch guys walk into displays, shelves and other shoppers...

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    If your GF has Es and it's just enough for a handful, well then, unless I'm misunderstanding something, you must have pretty big hands. Jeez, maybe you should be included on our TE list...

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    Well she's not massive so it would translate up to a D? Probably even smaller if she was over 6ft.

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    Also as MB states, American sizes are bigger, so that's throwing my scale.

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    sounds like she's a big B or small C DY. Sorry... getting personal here.

    Big Ds and/or DD are perfect for me, as long as they're not sloppy floppy. They need to have shape and form. I believe that my favorite little nymph Ms. Upton is a natural Big D or even DD, but they are perfect. Man, sometimes the genes are juuuuust right. SHe litterally has perfect natural boobs. Big but perfectly formed and not too hangy.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I tried to work it out and it would appear to be around a C as you say...bra sizes are confusing.

    I'm still chuffed though, as I say, no boob is going to waste. I would be fine up to D/DD, but anymore is a waste and becomes a suffocation hazard.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    naw, it's not a waste, it's just that once you get past a DD you're either with a fat chick, they touch her bellybutton, or she's going with the circus/sideshow fakies. None are attractive or nice.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Apparently Hendricks is a DDD but as Canada points out she's got that ass as punishment. So the DD border is the truth! Any bigger and, well....

    Let's put together a united nations of boob hall of fame:

    we can also do a warsaw pact and nato model, G8, G20, African Union, all asian, etc.

  • We would also have to come up with a standard unit of measurement because as DYL has shown, it can be quite confusing when seriously conversing across international spheres.

    Maybe this chart can be adopted by the Boob International Council (warning: NOT work friendly, and if you're under 18)

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    You got me man. But seriously, my head hurts from attempted conversions (and possibly alcohol) so I'm gonna let it go at the moment.

  • Wow. Too bad we have 3 RTs (Webb, Carimi, Scott) and don't run a zone blocking scheme.

    "Chiefs released RT Eric Winston.

    Winston just signed a four-year, $22 million contract with Kansas City last offseason, but after franchising LT Branden Albert on Monday and there being a plethora of young tackle prospects in the draft, his services were no longer needed. The move saves just $700,000 in cap space. Winston should have plenty of options on the open market. For what it's worth, he's played most of his career in a zone-blocking scheme. A reunion with the Texans would make some sense. The Dolphins, Rams, Ravens, Redskins and Lions also showed interest in him last offseason. His release clears a path for the Chiefs to take one of Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft if they so choose. "

    Rotoworld

  • Well I think that makes pretty clear who the #1 pick will be.

    Albert and Joeckle will be one of the best tandem tackles in football this year. Smith and Bowe will have the time they need to make something happen in the passing game.

    Andy Reid might be overpaying for Smith, but he has a plan... have to give him that.

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    Yeah, it seems all but certain Joeckle will get drafted #1 overall.

    Albert has immediately come out and proclaimed he's not moving to RT (or OG), so that situation got a lot more interesting.

    I can see Albert's point where he doesn't want to move from LT in his franchise year, but what happens if the Chiefs insist? He can't refuse because then the Chiefs can have a case for "insubordination" and I think that voids Albert's year and then can be franchised again next year without a raise.

    If the situation gets bad, Albert can refuse to sign until week 8 (at a reduced rate).

    So I guess Joeckle will be forced to play RT in his first year, but what happens if Albert signs a long term contract? a #1 overall for a RT is unprecedented. Maybe Albert wouldn't mind switching to RT once he gets paid.

  • I suspect Joeckle will play right tackle this year and move over to the left next year when Albert hits the road. Read an article that says during Reid's time in Philly he didn't typically have big names on the O-line (went to the superbowl with 2 undrafted free agents starting). If Albert was going to play on the right, they probably would have kept Winston instead.

    Now this all could be wrong, they could be going for a defense guy with the pick and Albert is the reason why Joeckle won't get picked up at #1. But I think my first instinct was probably correct.

  • I forgot Eva Green. She was a Bond girl in a recent one (Daniel Craig). She's odd looking but has fabulous boobs. She was naked a lot in Bernardo Bertolucci's The Dreamers. Including bush.

  • Hey Deadlift. No censorship by Jimmy et al. I had comment sent to me for approval. I had no idea what to do. My bad.

  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    No problemo. It was just kinda weird. Every once in a while the "Administrators must approve" message pops up, and maybe it has something to do with 3 links or more like MB noted. Who knows? I mean, I know we can get a bit vulgar here , but usually we're pretty troll free (and we're boy scouts compared to the Rev!)

    I wondered if one of those pics was a bit too "risque" but then I looked over them again and was like, "They're PG-13 - TMZ is worse!"

    Hope you're enjoying yourself in NOLA (and hope you enjoyed the list!)

    This is what we devolve to when you go on vacation.

  • On the offensive line situation, I read something very interesting regarding the Saint's philosophy.

    What they prefer is having studly C/OGs to keep the inside pocket clean for Brees to step into over studly OTs.

    This fits what scouts have said about Bushrod that although he didn't allow many sacks, he did allow a lot of pressure (8%). Also, Bushrod got penalized 10 times.

    I just wonder how many of those "pressures" would turn into sacks with Cutler?

    I also wonder if Kromer will indeed prefer a premier OG like Levitre and try to train Cutler to step up in the pocket to avoid sacks (Not sure this can be trained as it seems more like instinctive pocket awareness).

    http://www.revengeofthebirds.com/2011/7/15/2276624/nfl-free-agency-is-jermon-bushrod-a-viable-option-for-the-arizona

  • To further elaborate.

    "When a team needs to upgrade at a position, sometimes it feels like "anybody would be better." Oftentimes, though, teams are just trading one flawed player for another.

    The Chicago Bears have needed an upgrade at left tackle for several seasons running, and according to the Chicago Tribune, they're targeting New Orleans Saints left tackle Jermon Bushrod. Bushrod, though, has been wildly inconsistent over the past few seasons.

    In 2012, Bushrod's plus-1.5 overall Pro Football Focus grade ranked him 44th among all tackles. Incumbent Bears left tackle J'Marcus Webb's minus-0.4 grade ranked him 47th. In pass protection, the Bears' biggest worry, Webb (plus-1.5) significantly outperformed Bushrod (minus-3.5).

    If the Bears spend every last penny to bring in Bushrod, they might be unpleasantly surprised to find his play isn't any better than Webb's."

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1554369-the-many-perils-of-nfl-free-agency?utm_source=pulse&utm_medium=referral

    (Yes, it's B/R, but they're one of the few who publish PFF grades, so that's what I have to go by).

  • "Inconsistent"???

    That's Great.

    He'll fit right in.

  • Cutler does step up in the pocket to avoid sacks. Often he gets nailed anyway.

  • "try to train Cutler to step up in the pocket to avoid sacks"

    Butch, no offense but what the hell are you talking about? We have one of the most elusive QB's in the game. He is one of the few guys that can step up in the pocket to avoid the edge crashing in because of shitty blocking then slide out to the right or left because the middle of the pocket collapsed when he did step up and still get the ball off.....

    Jesus.

  • I know, what I meant was "emphasize" to Cutler to step into the pocket or to release it faster (he DOES hold onto the ball too long at times).

    Both might be a hard sell because Cutler has been playing with no WRs and no Oline for a while, and it's going to take a little time for him to get "deprogrammed" from the Lovie era.

    What I mean by that is that he probably unconsciously DISTRUSTS stepping up into the pocket because it has rarely been clean.

    Reducing pressure, sacks hits -It's an entire overhaul.

    1. Drill Cutler in mechanics, especially when it comes to getting rid of the ball more quickly (He's too ballsy for his own good) and having the ball hang at his hip well he's scanning the field.

    2. Emphasize stepping up into the pocket and not bolting (this is contingent on what C/OGs we get).

    3. Draft/buy a much better OT/OG and C so that Cutler can actually step up into the pocket.

    4. Draft/buy an actual TE so that when Cutler does get pressure, he has a safety-valve.

    5. Alshon and some other WRs progress in their craft, especially when it comes to chemistry, hot-reads, positioning and routes. Getting rid of Hester and Davis are immediate improvements in these departments.

    6. Simply put, better play calling by the OC/HC exploiting weaknesses and not endangering Cutler unnecessarily.

    QB sacks are really a multi-level stat, and I hope all this gets sorted out by mid-season.

    Also, I want to replace Garza but some don't want to start a rookie at center due to calling protections, but isn't about time that Cutler begins calling his own protections?

  • yes and yes. Jones in rd 2 please.

  • I like your explanations here except for the QB calling the protections. Someone on the line has to do it but it can't be Jay.

    He does sometimes hold onto the ball but his average yards per scramble is really nice which means he takes off running when it's wide open or he is under ridiculous duress. he doesn't bolt too soo, sometimes he tries to jam it in when he should be bolting!

    An upgrade at C or G would help pocket integrity definitely and it's also sad that Kellen couldn't even be a safety valve. He doesn't get separation even from linebackers which sucks. I loved Dezzy because that dude got open.

    Bennett used to be the hot read king but cooled off last year. I'm thinking Trestman will get him back into that role. Marshall is always a great last ditch go to guy. He had the 2nd highest catch per target percentage in the league and average over 12 yards a catch. So pretty much every time we threw to him he caught it...and then got a first down. Alshon is going to give us all joy boners.

    The subpar scheme and coaching on the offensive side of the ball added to the simplicity and predictable max protect schemes led to the Bears playing against a stacked deck all year. At least with Martz the defense had no fucking idea what was going to happen.

    When I read comments by posters hating on Cutler or the offense and only blaming the line while citing that the Pack line sucks as well I get mad because it's not the just the shitty line that causes an offense to underperform, it's the fucking scheme as well!!!!

    I'm pretty sure Forte and Bennett will be utilized properly this year. Alson will be even better and Marshall will be Marshall. Who is the TE that will come in and make magic????? Can't wait to see.

  • I think the US would nuke N.Korea but never China. If you nuke China our economy is fucked AND you've just started a war with Russia because that would fuck them economically. I don't need Red Dawn part 2 starting over some piece of shit country that offers nothing to the world. Sucks to be a citizen of that country. It's not your fault but you are fucked.

  • N Korea exists solely for China to have a "buffer". Everyone knows N. Korea is China's responsibility. IF N. Korea goes nuclear on Japan or the U.S., I think those countries would hold China responsible, and all bets are off.

    China is like Micheal Corleone, and N. Korea is a mix between a hot-headed Sonny and a mildly retarded and totally incompetent Fredo. Like Sonny and Fredo, they gotta be taken out, either from internal or external enforcers. Preferably from within by China. Less messy for us.

    But it won't happen unless China really does believe N.Korea will nuke. Then, they'll probably just step in and take over the country entirely, but they don't exactly want a million angry South Korean soldiers at their borders.

Make sure you eat at Katie's for charbroiled oysters, do breakfast at the Ruby Slipper or Cafe at the Square. Also, you MUST stop at the Aiden Gill barber shop for a 7 towel shave. They serve u Powers Irish Whiskey while they shave you. Legendary. It's on Fulton St. by Harrah's. That's my 2 cents, hope you have an awesome time!

  • In reply to MattySouthside:

    what about the bignets? or howeverthefuckyouspellit.

  • If we make a big FA signing that is not a tackle .... how about ... DE?

    Cliff Avril, Elvis Dumervil, Paul Kruger and Freeney are all on the market ....

  • I'd say its a longshot to pour more FA money in the D line....Although Kruger would look great in a Bears uniform.

  • In reply to Shady:

    agreed. If Woot hadn't stepped up I'd be on a plane right now to Kruger's house armed with a slutty Bears chick to fellate him into coming to the Bears.

  • Not bloody likely Irish.

    I mean, there's only so much money we can invest in the Dline.

    Pepp and Melton alone are costing us $24M this year, and you want to throw another $9M into the pot?

    No way. Cutler's got to get protection. He's one good concussion away from reevaluating his profession of choice.

  • A girl can dream. Freeney on one end, Peppers on the other, with Izzy and Wooten to work into the mix. Stop *that* shit ... with Arthur Brown or Minter or Ogletree in behind. Or if we forego the linebacker in round one, is it possible to draft Jonathan Cooper at Guard in Rd 1 and Arthur Brown in Round 2? An improved Jonathan Scott at LT .....

  • Well Freeney wouldn't cost us $9 million a year, but I agree with Butch, we just don't have the cash to commit. Plus, you are ignoring Shea in your description. That's Emery's guy, he'll be in the mix next year.

    It's called Blade Gunner.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Bang! Bang! (Literally)

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Harrison was told that if he wanted no part of Episodes VII, VIII and IX that he would be written out, they wouldn't use another actor. Carrie fisher looks like she'll sign on. At least they know Mark Hamill is available.

  • Hamill has been raking in dough hand over fist doing voiceover work. Millions.

  • Of all the Jokers over the years, my favorite is still Mark Hamill doing the voice-over for the animated series. Heath Ledger was amazing as well, but when I imagine the Joker in my mind, I think of Hamill.

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    He did the voice of the Joker in the two games as well (Arkham Asylum and Arkham City). He was fantastic in those as well. Highly recommend picking those up.

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    Played through both of them. Really excellent games. Have to admit though that after the movie and Arkham City, I am a little tired of the Ras al Gul character. Writers just really don't give him a lot of depth.

    I'll never get tired of Batman v. Joker though. Possibly the single greatest hero/villain duo in the history of comics.

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    Wow, Hamil did the Joker? That's awesome, and now that I remember, yeah, it was him! I really loved Mr. Freeze in the animated series - he was a lot darker and possibly the saddest cartoon episode I ever saw in my life (that last scene when Batman is on the roof looking into the prison cell where Mr. Freeze is peering at the ballerina in the snowglobe...cue darkness...)

    You guys are ignoring Mark Hamil's greatest role!

  • So...my stupid battery for my laptop is dying (I blame the Bears for this).

    Has anyone recently purchased a good laptop battery online?

    (I'll be damned if I'm gonna get ripped off by Dell!)

    I've just been rummaging through endless Ebay and Electronic sites whilst listening to some Floyd so I won't turn into the Hulk.

  • mine's going out as well. I have a Latitude E5500 so i've been searching. Dell's are mini bar pricey so i'm looking everywhere else.

  • If you know a guy from Hong Kong, just get it from him and cut out the middle man.

    I have a 6 cell battery, and my main problem is that I want to get a 9 cell battery which fits (perfectly), but apparently there's no such thing with a Dell Inspiron. The 9 cell batteries fit, but stick out about an inch (it was also fun converting inches into milimeters...)

    Oh, I had a blast learning how to figure out WH vs MAH, voltage, watts and how all that transforms into how many actual hours a battery can power a lap top for!

    Also, apparently, some adapters can't recharge certain batteries, so be careful there.

    After a whole day of that, MY battery is dead.

    It's looking like Urlacher will be back and I'm pretty interested on how Emery handles Urlacher's contract.

    Do you make it a one year deal or do you make it a three year deal with some incentives and bonuses if he returns to his pro-bowl level?

    As positive as I feel about Urlacher coming back, I feel pretty crappy about seeing any other big name FA's. The cap situation hasn't changed and I don't expect it will.

  • And where have you been young man?

    LOOOOVE Big Sur. Most beautiful place I've ever seen. Only place on earth where you can hike through a Red Wood Forrest, ride horses on the beach, and overlook the stars from a jacuzzi attop the mountains all in the same day.

    Santa Cruz is cool too.

  • Did you go to the Pt.Sur Lighthouse and have you heard all the crazy (yet very true) stories about the government doing top secret flying experiments out in Big Sur, during the 1900's and late 60's?

  • No, I didn't get a chance to do that (or read the stories). I assume that's why that bar has an alien on top of it lol

    I was too busy doing the hiking, riding horses, drinking at the bar, bbqing by the stream (and a few other things that go on in cabins with a lady).

    It has a lot of stories. I was more interested in all the Beat Nek writers who stayed there during the 60s.

    Didn't even know about the experiments.

  • Artoo, after you've been in Cali for about a year I believe you are issued your standard gear:

    SAN DIEGO -- When Detroit Lions scouts couldn't pronounce Håvard Rugland's name during his trial for the NFL this week, they took to calling him "Kickalicious."

    Rugland is the Norwegian Internet kicking sensation who hopes to parlay his incredible trick-shot video -- which he called "Kickalicious" -- into a dream job kicking for an NFL team.

    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/story/21831897/from-video-to-field-norwegian-kickalicious-seeking-nfl-job

  • In reply to Shady:

    In theory, the guy could kick and punt, an awesome thing for whomever he plays.

  • FA grumblings...

    The NFCN might get really interesting.

    Allegedly, the Lions are VERY interested in acquiring Reggie Bush to complement Leshoure.

    The Vikes might lose Harvin, but gain Wallace (and if they keep both, holy shit!)

    The Bears are looking into OG Levitre and Moore (and probably Vasquez). This makes sense because the OT market has dried up significantly. Albert, Beatty are wrapped up, Bushrod is working on a deal with the Saints (not that I'm really high on him anyways). That leaves only pricey Long as a discernible upgrade over Webb (Baker and Cherilus aren't that much better) or a gamble on a RT like Vollmer, Andre Smith, Loadholt to play LT.

    The Fudge are quiet as always during this time of year. They'll probably re-sign Finley and maybe pick up a LB, but that's about it.

  • On the plus size, if everyone signs an OT but us during FA, that means those teams are most likely to skip an OT in the first two rounds of the draft.

    Maybe.

  • Good point. I say wait for the draft. And if Trestman could turn do a 180 on O-line sack numbers from one year to the next then maybe, just maybe, he can turn our sow's ear of a line into well, not a silk purse but perhaps a serviceable burlap bag...

  • Can't see the Lions getting Bush. They are missing half a team of starters due to FA and by the time they replace them and sign their draft class they are gonna be right up against the cap limit. I really hope they extend Stafford to get him though, cause that would REALLY fuck them up capwise in the future.

    Vikes....hmmm can't see them resigning Harvin to big money. They can take Wallace, I'm less scared of him than Harvin. They also have a QB who is really bad at throwing the deepball. If they don't resign Loadholt, their run game might take a hit as well. Their D sucks. Unless AP steps up again they are a 6 win team imo.

    Green Bay, well as you say they're never big players in FA. Still have to fix their D and OL, so I could see an LB or a Safety in FA and the rest fixed through the draft.

  • Continuing on the Jets Clown Car Tour 2013...

    "Mornhinweg (the OC) says Jets can get by without an accurate quarterback"

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/03/08/mornhinweg-says-jets-can-get-by-without-an-accurate-quarterback/

    File that under "things you never want to hear your new OC say."

    Then, Mornhinweg had the audacity to compare Slinging Sanchez (with his 6 yd/attempt avg) with Farvre who had a lower completion %. That franchise is fucked.

    They're over the cap. They only have like 11 starters signed. They're best player, Revis, wants out. They're stuck with Sanchize because of his contract.

    Comment of the day:

    "Sanchez can’t even text as well as Favre"

    Close second

    "I think his Mornhinweg is on too tight"

  • Love it. Out of curiousity, what would you give up for Revis?

    So gutted they aren't in our division. It's unfair that Brady has been able to get free entry to the playoffs every year because of playing these clowns, Buffalo and Miami.

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    Yeah, tell me about it. Everyone talks about the Pats and Indy dominance in the 2000s, but all the other teams in their divisions sucked balls.

    Honestly, I WOULDN'T trade for the Revis if I were the Bears, at all.

    If I were a team like the 9ers who has a plethora of draft picks and are SB contenders, I'd probably give two 2nds and a 4rth with some conditional picks.

    No way I give a give up a 1st because Revis is going to cost something like $16M a year.

    His recent inj and contract demands are gonna scare off a lot of teams. Keep in mind that Revis held out twice already.

  • Yeah I'm the same he just isn't a fit for our system, but I was curious as to what you think it would take. Even with the 9ers, their first would probably be on the table seeing as it is at the end of the round. Given that they will have a lot of resigning/extending to do in a few years I don't think they make the move tbh. The Vikes have a decent amount of picks and I could see them making a move, which I'm fine with as Marshall owns Revis.

  • Urlacher should have a new deal in place soon, according to Clayton..

    Right now teams can call agents and talk to them about their availbilty to join a certain team

    The Bears have called Greg Jennings and Andy Levitre's agent..

  • Jennings no, Levitre yes.

  • Jennings would be an outrageous choice and would give me an outrageous boner if it was pulled off somehow.

  • as long as OL was addressed as well.

  • You want Jennings to pull your boner ?

  • No to all I'm afraid.

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    That was directed to MBs Safety ponderings above. Woodson is old and shit, Wilson is on the downward slide and Bigby, well, I don't want any defenders that gave up a 4th and 29 on my team thanks.

  • I just woke up with the baby and goddamn it if Artoo didn't get me into a dream about Jennings running slants in a Bears uniform.

    I believe I was also mouth banging Charlize Theron at some point in this dream which, I have to say, is not the worst kind of dream to have.

  • Sounds like a nightmare.

    Can we just forget about all these former Fudgers in a Bears uniform talk? Finley, Woodson, Jennings. No. Just... No.

  • In reply to Shady:

    Woodson fuck no but Finley and Jennings? Why not?

    I want the OL, TE and LB situation ironed out completely first but why would we turn down Finley or Jennings if Cliff Stein felt he could make it work?

    That lineup would make Bears history as biggest fear boner inducing lineup ever.

  • No to Finley because drops are an issue, he's created problems in the locker room and he's not bright enough to study up a playbook. I don't trust him, especially for that amount of money.

    No to Jennings because I'd rather take care of a similar/better receiver in Marshall long term than sign a former Packer who doesn't fit with what the Bears should be looking for in a WR: pure speed. Jennings would leave little to no room to legitimately solve the TE or OL problem in FA either.

  • In reply to Shady:

    i hear you on Finley and those are valid concerns.

    Jennings is exactly what the Trestman offenses used in the past. West Coast offenses are built around guys that get yards after the catch and not pure speed guys. Jennings gets yards....lots of fucking yards.

    Boldin might be available. He's a little old but he's Anquan Boldin and he just almost singlehandedly got Flacco 62 Million dollars for 3yrs of work.

    Marshall, Boldin, Jeffrey, Bennett......Joe Anderson? aka Mini Bolden?

  • oh sweet baby jesus... here we go again. Can we please just get him Emery. please please please.

    Then we can go OL, OL, ILB, OL and get an LT in FA too. Done and done.

  • Problem with Boldin is that he's not a burner. We would have great blocking and great physical play at the line of scrimmage from our WRs, but no true deep threat to tax the safeties.

    Its possible we just don't have a spot for him, but I agree he's a great player.

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    I know you're a serious guy NB, but so I'll make sure you know I'm just ribbing you (see how I did that?)

  • In reply to lobotobear:

    Warmack, Joeckel, and Fisher are worth trading up for regardless of what the Bears do in FA. If the Bears don't sign a starting OT in FA then I feel the Bears HAVE to trade up for one of these guys.

  • In reply to Shady:

    agree Shady

  • In reply to lobotobear:

    You know, I have a feeling that we're going to get an OG in FA and try to go with Webb and Scott as OTs, which is going to piss off a lot of fans.

    Like I said about Webb a month ago - his measurables are such that they are like a siren's song luring all coaches to inevitable destruction.

    I hope the Bears can see past Webb's measurables and "upside" and get a better LT, but I don't think they're going to.

    The OT who is intriguing is Watson. We can more than likely trade down for him too.

    Jones is listed as a C, but he played OG and OT while winning some awards for playing both, so that would be another valid option.

  • If Jones grades out on the foot surgery, we should get him. Fills potential needs at C, G, and in theory (if Carimi can ever be a LT) T.

  • Here's something to think about if the Bears were to just let Cutler walk.. granted they can franchise tag him and what not but..

    What if Cutler decides he's had enough of the Bears? He decides to hit Free Agency and guess who wants to pay him a lot of money? The Vikings.

    Just something to think about..

  • I know there has been much debate here on Cutler. It's just silly. He's the best QB the Bears have ever had. (If anybody says Sid Luckman I'm coming to your house.) He's 29, 6'-3", and has an arm that 26 or 27 starting quarterbacks in the league would kill for. He's had no chance here due to all of the deficiencies we've all discussed. Even if the Bears drafted a quarterback in the first round of this draft, which they won't, he's staying. Jason Campbell would start for ten teams in this league and look at what he looked like. Who are they going to replace him with? Look at all of the quarterbacks the league ran through last year trying to find real starters. Better
    have a damn good plan in place if you let Cutler walk.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    let Cutler walk because he has a pouty demeanor and I heard from a guy that knows a friend who has a cousin who was married to this girl who once followed Jay on twitter that he may hate kittens and possibly old people.

  • Is Cutler still an asshole for shoving Webb in the Packers game he was stoned? If Clay Matthews was trying to kill me and my left tackle was smoked up, I would do more than bump him.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    Cutler despises Webb because he doesn't take this shit seriously. Cutler went out of his way to make a point that Louis, Carimi, Garza and Scott are deadly serious about what they do for a living.

    Webb in theory should be ripping guys arms out of their sockets but instead for how big he is he plays like an enormous pussy.

    I have no problem with Cutler letting Webb know he needs to step the fuck up.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    Agree with everything you said, but in fairness to Campbell, he was playing San Fran in his only start.

    But yeah, Jay is an extremely solid player and I see no reason to seriously consider looking elsewhere. Though I do favor drafting someone to be a solid backup. This year, I have no idea who that would be, but if Emery sees a real potential, I'm fine with a second round pickup.

    But as MB said before (was it MB? I can't remember). OL is the top priority.

    Oh no, MB was the guy who wants us to blow our cap on Anquan Boldin.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    The real point is about replacing Jay.

    I'm not on the bandwagon about him being all that good (nor the best Bears QB ever), but he's better than we're likely to end up with in any other scenario.

    Unless, of course, we find a Kaepernick or Wilson. Or better yet, a Brady.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    It would be interesting to see a parallel universe where Brady is brought up in the Bears system under the shitboxes we had coaching and the subpar offensive players we surrounded our QB's with. My guess is that he wouldn't be the Brady you see today.

  • I think he would have turned out more like Campbell. A solid guy that could start on a team without a star. Look no further than the year Brady hurt his knee. Cassel came in and the Patriots never missed a beat. Cassel sucks. There's a reason Brady was a 6th rounder. He was pretty good in college, but not a standout. He was able to grow into a Hall of Famer because he was in the right environment.

  • I think the issue with Jay is the way Bears have handled, or mishandled, QBs over the years. Without providing and adequate offense around the QB, the Bears cannot properly evaluate quarterbacks. Is Jay capable of winning "the big game"? I don't know, but until this franchise changes its philosophy from defense first to QB first we may never find out. we're in that transition phase now with emery and Trestman. If they can salvage Jays career and prove he's not damaged goods there is hope for extending cutler. If they don't protect Jay and don't allow him to play to his strengths then the Bears could be looking for another signal caller. Yet again.
