  1. A Pete Or Breida? Big Money League Semis

    Thoughts here? Thanks!
  2. Which one am I starting? This is kinda a no brainer starting Breida right? Non PPR.. standard scoring. WHIR - thank you!! QB: Big Ben (or Goff) RB: Zeke, A Pete or Breida WR: JuJu, Evans, Kittle K: Butker DEF: Broncos

    HA!!! So it should be 2 points awarded for 400 yards (instead of an extra one)?
  4. 2018 Vent & Rant Thread

    I needed 40 points from Jared Goff to win my game last night and got 39 - currently losing 130-129. Except... it clearly states in our league rules that we get 1 pt for every 300 yards passing and 1 pt for every 400 yards passing - I've only gotten one bonus point. I also would very easily win tiebreaker (total offensive yardage is our tiebreaker). Looked back over previous weeks & it's been an issue all year - complete glitch on ESPN. Good thing the Commish is on a boat in the Pacific somewhere and doesn't have cell service & I play him this week (game starting on Thursday) and he's one game back against me in our division...........
  5. Thinking of getting rid of Chubb. WHIR

    Trading Chubb isn't a terrible idea here. You are, however, high as a kite if you think a OBJ/Julio/AB owner would give you one of those three w/o a significant amount more in return other than just Chubb.
  6. On my bench I have Kittle, Ekeler, Brown, Shepard, Barber - I actually do like Coutee and wonder if he's worth picking up for John Brown? 100% WHIR... thanks!

    SHOCKINGLY that just might happen with a full first year starting QB, first year in a complicated offense that he's still learning and takes 2+ years to master (as Alex Smith & Mahomes both commented on). Again... I really don't know where Trubisky nets out long-term - high end QB1 or someone like Blake Bortles who plays as a high end QB1 one week and looks like he can't be a backup in the league. That's a direct correlation to the fact that he's still learning and growing. What we do know is that he is indeed growing & his pure physical tools jump off the page.

    DeShaun Watson on pace this season for: 4,200 yards passing, 30 TDs, 12 INTs, 476 yards rushing, 100,8 rating Mitchell Trubisky on pace this season for: 4,100 yards passing, 34 TDs, 12 INTs, 568 yards rushing, 101,6 rating Patrick Mahomes: Having an unprecedented NFL All-Time season & not even worth comparing
  9. SNF/MNF - What do you need?

    Down 9, non-PPR He's got OBJ I have George Kittle

    Yes - I know the play. He looked left, saw double coverage/safety up top, came back to the 1:1 coverage on ARob & threw it to his right hip/endzone sideline & underthrown slightly to ensure only one person would be able to make the play... Allen Robinson. Not only was it a fantastic throw for a TD but he read the defense accurately and went to the correct read. Listen: Trubisky is still a work in progress (as all young QB's are, but even more so with him with limited college playing time under his belt) - but he's certainly progressing.. it's obvious (again) by just the eye test. Yes, the Vikings will be a good measuring stick, but I think his play over the last many weeks shows he's indeed learning a complex offense and is moving the needle for the Bears.

    You play the games you have to play - that's it. That's why the argument is just simply faulty. The eye test tells you he's making leaps and bounds. Reading defenses significantly better, not having issues passing to his left - the NUMBERS also tell this. A Rob TD was a perfectly thrown TD - you absolutely have receivers/QB's who work on that sort of play on a weekly basis during practice where the receiver is the only one who has a chance to catch the "underthrown" football. Note: He had a 148.6 rating yesterday. Second note: That's really good.
  12. Mitch Trubisky 2018 Outlook

    Ahhh - got it... when the numbers (and the eye test that's telling you he's taking huge leaps and bounds in this offense) tell a completely different story from the narrative you're spinning, resort to the ol' "schedule" argument. I'm a Bears STH and I'm fairly confident anyone on this board will tell you.. I'm pretty honest about Chicago sports. So... yes.. I've "spent too much time" watching Bears games this season as well. I've also stated that the Vikings 2x, Packers and Rams will be an interesting test to see where Trubisky is (on different levels - top tiered defense in the Vikings & the need to score points in bunches against the Packers/Rams).
  13. Mitch Trubisky 2018 Outlook

    Literally such a ridiculously inaccurate statement. On pace for 4,100 yards passing, 33 TDs, 12 INT's, 570 yards rushing, 4 rushing TD's. with darn near close to a 100 QB rating with a guy in his first full year starting, in an actual NFL offense, in a system that is very complex to learn (Alex Smith & Mahomes both have said the same thing). A large swath of NFL teams would fawn at getting that type of production from the QB position, especially seeing his age etc. The pass to ARob was actually a perfectly thrown football - one player was the only player who could have caught that football and he did. Dude had a 148.6 rating - find another avenue to critique.
  14. Mitch Trubisky 2018 Outlook

    He didn't looked scared - Nagy was spoon feeding him a brand new offense. The physical tools jumped off the page even in those earlier games this season.
  15. Mitch Trubisky 2018 Outlook

    I have absolutely zero clue why you thought he'd remotely be Blaine Gabbert. Trubisky, unlike Gabbert, has every single tool to be an elite QB in this league - plus arm, plus mobility, accurate (it was one of his strengths coming out of college), athleticism and can gain yards in chunks with his legs. The true test for Trubisky comes after this game against the Lions - Vikings twice, Rams and Packers before the end of this year. Bears are primed for a playoff appearance & this man is one of the huge reasons why. On pace for 4,100 yards passing, 33 TDs, 12 INT's, 570 yards rushing, 4 rushing TD's. Yah, that's pretty fantastic for a second year starter working as a starter in a pretty complex offense to learn.
