Chicago Bears

Quarterback Irony For Chicago Bears

Published

on

Yesterday the Chicago Bears and Mark Sanchez finalized a one year deal.

Mark Sanchez, better known for his butt fumble, has played for the Jets (2009-2013), the Eagles (2014-2015) and the Cowboys (2016). He played two games for the Cowboys last season, which resulted in 0 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions.

We can’t forget the horror that was Mark Sanchez against his old team last season. Remember when he came into the game and threw the ball straight into the arms of linebacker Jordan Hicks.

In total Sanchez has played 77 games with: 15,219 yards, 86 touchdowns, completion rate of 56.7%, 30 fumbles, and 86 interceptions.

Just like Jay Cutler, Mike Glennon, and Sanchez are turnover prone. Glennon has 15 interceptions, 4 fumbles and an average completion rate of 59.4%. Sanchez has 86 interceptions, 30 fumbles and an average completion rate of 56.7%.

Cutler has played more games than both of them and had 146 interceptions with 56 fumbles, and a 61.9% completion rate. Mark Sanchez has only played 77 games and Jay Cutler has played 139.

Glennon is still looking to be the starter for the Bears with Sanchez as an experienced back-up.

Pace has stated that they are looking to recruit a Quarterback in the draft. If recruiting someone new to the NFL the Bears feel that Sanchez could be a great mentor as he was for Dak Prescott.

Moving forward it seems that Pace has his eyes on Deshaun Watson. He has voiced that experience is high on his priority list for a quarterback. Deshaun has been a starter for Clemson the last two seasons which gives him a leg up.

Irony rings in with Pace’s statement about experience when it comes to Glennon. Glennon has only played 21 games in his NFL career. Both Glennon and Sanchez only appeared in two games last season.

That being said, although experience is important, you would think talent should be at the top of Pace’s list. The priority was getting Jay Cutler out of Chicago, but when will the Bears get a quarterback to take us to the playoffs?

Chicago Bears Fire John Fox as Head Coach

Published

on

John Fox

In Chicago, Illinois, deep within the windy city, the NFC North Chicago Bears have decided to let go John Fox. Yesterday, the Chicago Bears lost to the Minnesota Vikings 22-10 in Fox’s final game.

In 2014, he led the Denver Broncos to a 12-4 regular season record. After the season ended, he decided to walk away from the team and signed with the Chicago Bears.

From 2015-2017, John Fox tried to get the Bears back to the promise land. Instead, he led them to a 6-10, 3-13, and 5-11 records in three seasons. Overall, John Fox is 14-34 as the Bears Head Coach.

Connect 5: Week 2 NFL Picks

Published

on

Week 2 is among us and it is time to take our stab at this weeks games. Again this is for entertainment purposes and very little research goes into our picks. We tend to rely on our gut for our picks so without any further ado let’s take a look at how we did in week 1.

Hits: Bills over the Jets, Giants over Cowboys.

Misses: Chiefs over Pats, Falcons over Chicago (Falcons didn’t cover).

The Bucs and Dolphins game wasn’t played so we’ll revisit that game in week 11. So for those keeping track at home we went 2-2 in week 1. We broke even so lets take a stab at 5 games for week 2.

Week 2

Eagles @ Chiefs (spread: Chiefs -4.5)

Carson Wentz and the Eagles looked like gang beaters against the Washington football team last week. We still don’t know if that is a reflection of the Eagles being really good or the other team being really bad. The truth probably lies somewhere in the middle. I went against the Chiefs last week on the road so I’m gonna roll with them this week as they return home. Hopefully Hunt goes off again and they handle business. Our pick: Chiefs win and cover

Bears @ Buccaneers (spread: Bucs -7)

This is the first game for the Buccaneers and they will be chopping at the bit after sitting out week 1. The Bears had a less than stellar showing in week 1 and still had a chance to win the game but came up short. All things equal I’ll give the advantage to the home team. It’s time for Winston to step and move to that next level, he will have his change in his home debut this weekend. Our pick: Bucs win 

Many are expecting Winston to take the next step this season. His season begins this Sunday against Chicago.

Bills @ Panthers (spread: Panthers -7)

The Panthers had a solid win last week as the Bills come to town. We love Tyrod Taylor and Shady McCoy but that Bills team lacks enough playmakers. The Bills beat the Jets last week but the Jets might be the worst team in the NFL. We’ll ride with Cam as the Panthers return to their home field this week. Our pick: Panthers win and cover.

Jets @ Raiders (spread: Raiders -14)

For those who know me, you understand that I am a big sucker for big numbers against the spread. This weeks upset special I am rolling with the Jets to keep it under 14 points. The Jets are a terrible terrible football team. I hate going against Vegas but I’m rolling the dice on the J-e-t-s. They won’t win but I just need them to not get blown out. Our pick: Jets lose but keep it within 14.

Packers @ Falcons  (spread: Falcons -2.5)

The Falcons are a really good football team who is tough to beat at home. That is the basis for me picking the Falcons. I think these teams are really close in talent but the Falcons will be hype for opening their new stadium. Aaron Rodgers is a wildcard that you can never count out. We’ll play it safe and stick with the home team on this one. Our pick: Falcons win by 3
