    We say this shit every year, but this is going to be the norm for week 1.  The CBA has done a lot to reduce the amount of OTAs, practice hours,  practice with full pads, etc.  Also, the Bears defense will probably make every offense look bad.  As for the Bears offense, I just think Mitch sucks.  S&L was pretty big on him, but I stand by calling him a game manager. 

    Mitch sucks, that much is obvious.

    I read a PFF last year that he didn’t look past the 3rd of the field he ended up throwing to 73% of the time. Not the exact receiver, as some times it was a bunch formation and he went to the 2nd option still on that third. 

    But, for comparisons sake, the next closest was around 60% of the time. So, yeah...he stares down and doesn’t read a defense/field during the play at all. It appears he has not rectified that issue in the offseason as of yet.

    That’s a serious habit....crazy he hasn’t improved that

    There I was, all looking forward to the NFL season and really excited. And then I watched that abortion of a game last night. It's gonna take some work to regain that excitement by Sunday...

    Last year’s opener. Still awful, but that wasn’t last night.

    AB just posted some nonsense on Instagram about a system failing him (and his 3 yr/$50 million contract) and ended it asking the Raiders to release him. I thought I read/heard somewhere yesterday that he had issued an emotional apology to the team and might play MNF? We joke about the concussion/brain injury stuff, but he seriously might be noncompliant bipolar.

    Also, this guy is bitching on social media more than high school girl would.

    He supposedly did. Then Gruden came out and said he was playing Monday night.

    Schefter tweeted they fined him $215K last night which voids his guaranteed $30 million, hence him asking for his release. You mean you don't get your guaranteed money when you screw up your feet, repeatedly skip practice/meetings, and keep trying to wear a helmet that's banned? I am stunned.

    The best part was that last night he posted a hype video. That contained a phone call from Gruden to him about "cutting the shit out and playing football" while he was talking about being more than AB The Football Player and that people need to see the real him or something along those lines. Despite minor details such as how California is a two-party consent state for that sort of thing, so he, uh, might have committed a teensy-weensy felony.

    I’m not sure I see anyone picking him up. I sure as hell hope Jerry doesn’t.
