he doesn’t want to compete with Trubisky

Well.  If he was afraid of competing against Trubisky I am double glad we didn't sign him.

I guess with the cutting of Floyd we have enough data (to match the eyeball test) to show that Pace can't draft 1st rounders for crap. Hell his best 1st rounder(s) are the two he gave up for Mack.....

Signing Graham is a WTF signing (why so early in FA ? Maybe Pace was conned into it by thinking there was a vibrant market for him (ala Trubisky in the draft ?)....

I used to be positive neutral on Pace but now its tilted for the negative and gathering momentum towards auguring in downward.....

For one of the cornerstone founding franchises of the NFL to be so inept for much of the modern era (1 SB win) is pretty inexcuseable and unacceptable....

On the positive side, only 5 more years until they make a SB run again (85, 2005, 2025 ?). And if the pattern holds, it should be a blowout win  :D

SO the Bears lost two solid backup LBs and gained a upgrade at Floyds spot. The starters are strong but hope and pray no one goes down!
Graham?? WTH are the Bears thinking???

https://chicago.suntimes.com/bears/2020/3/17/21184534/bears-free-agency-2020-quarterbacks-musical-chairs-mitch-trubisky-cam-newton-nick-foles-andy-dalton

He has had multiple surgeries on his right shoulder and suffered a Lisfranc break in his left foot last season. Any team that would want to add Newton undoubtedly would want to give him a thorough physical, and player visits are banned because of coronavirus measures.

I'd be scared of those injuries without a physical. I'd wait for the release thats coming or move on to Foles or Dalton. Of those 2 Foles is the most interesting. Why? Because Philly's offense is supposed to be close to Nagy's offense.

Based on what's transpired lately, "thinking" and "Bears" shouldn't be used in the same sentence :D

Someone said that Foles totally chokes when he is "the man".  He is good when he comes in as a back up and can just lead the team.  I dont know, but that doesnt really sound like good competition for Mitch.  But it could be good enough for a year while a rookie gets up to speed....

FWIW @dabearsblog called the Quinn sign/Floyd cut 3 minutes before Ian Rapp

Let's see if his "source" is right about this one...

Still livid about the guaranteed money for Graham.  It's like Pace was bidding against himself a la Glennon.

It's called desperation.  He knows 2020 is it for him.  He's got to field a playoff team or he's likely out.

GMs are measured on their success (wins) but also their drafts.   How many drafts has Pace had?  And how many starters from those drafts? 

Offense:  2 lineman, QB, HB and a WR
Defense:  2 lineman, ILB and safety

5 drafts - 9 starters

Pace needs to go before he can screw another draft.

Hopefully, restructuring his Jags deal.
