My favorite teams
Loaded RB class
Would love a trade down, then drafting Bijan Robinson. But only if we don't have better options at 3T/Edge/OT.Robinson or Gibbs would be perfect, but don't think they'll take a RB at 9, and Gibbs won't last until their pick in the 2nd. Would take some clever maneuvering.
At any rate, I hope the guy they get to replace him is faster and more explosive than Montgomery was. He also needs to be able to block, which is not a strong suit for Herbert.
Where do you get this?
Monty could absolutely pass block and his pass catching wasn't bad like Herbert's is. I have been on the moving on from Monty even though i'm a huge fan of him and how hard he ran and how good of a locker room guy he was.Those weren't exactly strong parts of Monty's game either. He was incredibly average in those areas. His best attribute by far was that he rarely had negative plays because he runs downhill and keeps his legs churning through contact.
Would have like to have kept him but its not some massive loss. People here still think its 1985 and vastly overvalue the position.
Aw man. Love that guy. This talk about paying Eckler more than him (plus draft picks) bugged me. Because Eck aint breakin tackles like Monty and Monty catches really well. Just because someone is a little bit scattier you pay more? I realize Monty isnt amazing but he's home grown and it's not a giveaway when he's on the field. He would have been great next year. I'll miss him.
OBJ is a Free Agent WR.OBJ has to be one of the most overrated players in NFL history by Bears fans. He is a good not great tackle which is precisely why he remains unsigned. He has grossly overestimated the market for his services and now hoping someone gets desperate so he can save face.
do you understand how Free Agency actually works? Every team is in on several free agents that they ultimately don’t get to sign. It’s not as easy as you make it out to beIt's been said the Bears were "in" on multiple free agents such as McGlinchy, Dremont Jones this year and settled on secondary options. I'm pretty sure Poles made some calls for some OLineman last year. And I'm sure I've heard of others but need to research who.
For one, yes it's been said but we don't know for sure.It's been said the Bears were "in" on multiple free agents such as McGlinchy, Dremont Jones this year and settled on secondary options.
