... (I refuse to call it the Lombardi trophy btw). ...Go Bears !



Amen to that.  It should be called the George Halas Trophy.

Wish they could've named it the Halas Trophy. But at least the Halas Trophy is the NFC championship trophy. Packers got lucky early in the SB era so the name was eventually stuck.....

Looking at QB depth charts around the league, I find it hard to believe we couldn't find a taker for Foles if we chose to do so.

I see at least 10 teams where Foles would easily fit as the #2...some of them contenders who would be devastated by an injury to their starter.

Still think he lands with the Jets. Douglas came from Philly and they have no one besides Wilson.

I agree with Pekin - all it takes is for one starting QB to go down.

I'm not sure what the cap savings would be (Foles contract still has 2 years lef)  but Bears should be able to get a 3rd day pick.

It could be that the Bears always want Fields to be either #1 or #3 and not ever have him as the primary backup.

Jenkins played LT 3 games each of his soph and jr years.  He was to be a LT last year and practiced there in camp.  After the first game their right tackle was injured and the best backup was a LT so Jenkins was moved to right.

So he has experience at LT and the Bears were able to evaluate him.

That switch to the right side probably cost Jenkins 1st round money (see Orlando Brown).  Bears were fortunate to get him at 39.

I've never seen so many draft grades of A for a draft as this past one.

We'll see how it grades out in a year or two.


As for the Foles status - no rush.  Who knows maybe there will be an injury for a starting QB in Chicago.
