2021 NFL Draft
« on: January 08, 2021, 12:55:34 pm »
Todd McShay (ESPN) has the Bears taking WR Elijah Moore (Ole Miss) at #20. He assumes Allen Robinson will leave via FA.

Oddly enough, he has QB's taken on both sides of the pick, with Trey Lance going to Washington at #19 and Mac Jones to Indy at #21.

Personally losing ARob has been on my mind. I think he is a goner. I absolutely know nothing about the Ole Miss receiver because I havent seen him but one receiver I've seen is the Georgia WR. He's pretty good and he might be available much later. And I am not willing to gamble on any WR till after the combine tapes them. Its just too early to be choosing a WR. OLine and QB are more interesting decisions to make first.  I saw one mock that had the Bears taking an Olineman from USC I think it was. I havent seen him either. A Leno replacement has to be #1 priority. Build the trenches.

OL all day before a WR.  And QB before WR also.  As talented as Robinson is, he has his flaws, like not always putting effort in on blocking.

I still have hopes that A-Rob will return.  I understand the team's cap issues - maybe they need to make some cuts or re-do some deals.

And keeping A-Rob means the Bears can target a lineman or QB in round 1 and 2.

I am not sure how good this guy is but it seems like maybe a later round pick, but the guy seems like a winner though underrated. But I sure liked the Iowa State QB Purdy

A lot depends on what they will do with the cap next year.

Some believe it will be cut 20% which won't leave a lot of teams signing FA.

There could be a lot of starters released for cap reasons.  A Rob may not find a contract even to match the Bears' offer elsewhere.

Some analysts are saying half the teams could be looking for a QB.  There's a fat chance there won't be one available.

Watching this line all season long...and last year all season long.....and.... anyway, if they don't target LT first and foremost unless some magical creature QB that can raise the
Titanic is sitting there....well....that wouldn't be good....it would be rather stupid.... it would be the Bears...

Two strikes against Davis...

1) hes more a guard than a tackle

2) his grandfather is Packers royalty (Willie Davis)

The bears will have to draft/FA a QB this year as there is no way Mitch is back. The bears took possession of the ball with about 1:30 on clock at end of first half. The Saints had just one TO left. Bears run on first down and Saints use last TO which means the bears own the clock. No passes attempted, no faith in either Mitch or play calls in a 3-7 game were Chicago gets ball to start second half.

Mitch will be a FA.

He should be a FA and gone but that's probably not what will happen I'm guessing. He sure ain't the future of this club at QB! So they'll have to get a QB in the draft.....again.....(and again and again and... ::)). The Bears since 2011 have drafted only three QBs, something I find stunning considering their decades long quality deficit at that position. Trubisky in 17', David Fales (and he did....) in 14' and Nathan Enderle (he indeed ended early...) in 11'. But they seriously 'Fale' in FA....of which they've had a bunch of QBs. Chase Daniel, Cutler which may be 'half' a success, Matt Barkley (??), Brian Hoyer ( some of these guys I don't even remember...), Jimmy Clausen, Josh McCown, Jason Campbell (??) and Caleb Hanie...all since 2011. ::) What a cluster....how anyone can find a shard of hope for the future out of simply looking at the nightmare past is beyond me. It's a train wreck.....

Ted simply has to go if the Bear wants to win football games.  If you want the McCaskey money managed and maximized, you keep Ted. He isn't a football guy, never was. Again, this has on the football game side been since Muggs died. Get Ozzie in  let him alone for a couple of years and see what happens. IMO the NFL has simply gotten completely stupid with pretty much everything
and now they want me to be enthusiastic about flag football/cardboard cutouts in the camera range/pumped in noise/protests.  No.
