  1. I know that 49ers are opening their new field today and they just spent big bucks resodding the field not long ago. My understanding is that by "big bucks" they brought in sod that was several feet thick, not your Home Depot variety... So if the field is some type if issue I'd be surprised if they play, but perhaps that isn't an issue. Any 9ers homers know? In any event if you're allowed to I'd say that right now S Holmes would be a solid pick up and play guy this afternoon.
  2. Adrian Peterson indicted for child abuse

    If you've seen the photos you cannot defend this in any way and not be a cretin. Disgusting. The kid is four years old. http://www.ijreview.com/2014/09/177641-see-photos-got-star-rb-adrian-peterson-indicted-child-abuse-decide-went-far/
  3. Semi-Official Super Bowl XLVIII thread

    Why wasn't that safety a dead ball foul on illegal procedure? What did I miss?
  4. Dynasty Dialogue - 2014 (Quarterbacks)

    I have to applaud Darin for doing these. I just think that these are great pre draft reads and will make for fun watching draft day but if Manziel becomes a Radier I'd pass on him in a heartbeat. The ultimate "variable" has yet to be settled IMO. I look forward to the post draft ranks...
  5. Report: Win or lose, Manning could retire in offseason

    Let's not forget: Elway was the whiner that started all the " I'm too good" attitude then ran away from attempting a 3 peat. Jus sayin.
  6. Coaching changes

    The Lions...
  7. Bears sign Cutler to 7 year extension

    There's no doubt he has a massive media handicap, that he could give two chits about. Kind of endearing IMO, compared to a spotlight whore that is rg3 for one...
  8. Bears sign Cutler to 7 year extension

    Oh come on dude, use a little imagination. Here's a quote from an article I loved a few years back when he wrecked his knee during the NFC Championship game (most non Cowboys fans know what that is) and got flack from everyone for not grabbing a set of pom poms to cheer his team on moments after wrecking his knee for a few months: Full article here. http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2011/1/24/1952992/jay-cutler-injury-nfl-soap-opera

    oh boo f'ing hoo I most certainly did not. Go re read lil guy.
  10. Bears sign Cutler to 7 year extension

    4 full years since you've been above .500. 4 straight years of 500 or better with an NFC Championship game appearance. I'll take the latter all the way.
  11. Bears sign Cutler to 7 year extension

    When I projected Cutler over 16 games I was surprised to find out he only averaged 238/game. A quick scan of McCown's starts shows the best D he faced was Bal, and had GB, Was, Dal & Min in his spate of starts which was probably the softest part of the Bears schedule vs passing Ds. That's why it isn't apples to apples but I would guess Cutler's average would have gone up facing those boxes of tissues.
  12. Bears sign Cutler to 7 year extension

    Well, I can do what I want but I didn't bother because I didn't need to to make my point.
  13. NFL stories not worth their own thread - post them

    The Charges made the playoffs and won a game.
  14. Bears sign Cutler to 7 year extension

    I have been. No real issues with him, he's tough as nails IMO and while he makes mistakes you're in no position to be very snarky about him with Romo on your squad.
  15. Bears sign Cutler to 7 year extension

    Kaepernick isnt bettr than him, that's statistically provable and they're about a wash comparing their last two full season. If you extraploate Cutler to a full season in 2013 it's him by a pretty decent margin. Same goes for Wilson. The others on the list are primarily equals tho I'd give an edge to Ryan, Luck and ben perhaps. So, you're up to 7, with a bunch of QBs in the same wheel house. He is NOT in the bottom half of QBing in the league when its claimed there are 12-15 better than him. That is demonstrably asinine.
  16. Bears sign Cutler to 7 year extension

    I'm still waiting for the mouth pieces to list 12 QBs better than Cutler. Heck I'll even spot Brees, Manning, Brady & Rodgers. 8 more, clearly better....?
  17. Bears sign Cutler to 7 year extension

    With a few more details this contract does NOT include a signing bonus, and can basically be voided by the Bears for no further cost and cut him after 3 full years. Those 3 years are for $54 million guaranteed and if he sucks as bad as everyone here is saying they can go in a different direction. Fine by me. And gil is right: he's had ZERO OL protection for most of his time in Chicago and a new OC every single year if I'm not mistaken. That appears to be fixed now, along with the most offensive weapons the Bears have probably ever had.
  18. Bears sign Cutler to 7 year extension

    Had no skin in the fight before or now. Just living in SoCal has me ovah the SD fan base and their know it all but actually know nothing football mentality. Quite possibly the worst fans I've ever met, no offense.
  19. Bears sign Cutler to 7 year extension

    Such a great decision as well for SD. The defense rests.
  20. Bears sign Cutler to 7 year extension

    Right. The ultimate back-in 5 years after even winning a playoff game. That's hi falutin pedigree right there!
  21. Bears sign Cutler to 7 year extension

    Well you've got to figure at the length he'll never see years 6 and 7 - it'll either be a renegotiate or cut at that point. We went back on forth on this already, the money to be saved is in dropping Peppers and using THAT space to revamp the D. The Jennings resigning is certainly one to look at too.
  22. Bears sign Cutler to 7 year extension

    As a Chargers fan you know all about good QBs, right?
  23. 2nd favorite team

    Solid Bears fan, but had a soft spot for the Oilers due to a move to Houston as a kid, and seeing Earl Campbell live. That carried over to their move to Tennessee, but once Fisher left that finally cut the cord to any interest I had further in that team. So at this point, no, except for whomever plays a divisional opponent.
  24. I'm more bothered by the spate of injuries that are becoming commonplace at the HS level and below. Within ten years, when kids are keeping their sons from playing the talent pool is going to be much thinner.
  25. Survivor Pool Week 4

    I like interconference games, taking the home team. Denver stands out since it's a porous Philly D, Manning's on a tear and it's at altitude.
