Bears supposedly still trying to work out a deal for Wentz. Read an article that thinks Darnold may be the backup plan if Wentz trade doesn't happen. Also looking like offensive tackle and wide receiver is the priority in the draft for them.

at least they have the draft priorities correct.

I like Wentz enough , but not enough to give up a 1st round draft pick

Exchanging Wentz for Foles is a positive for me, despite the contract. Exchanging our 1st for their 2nd, I can live with that. May still prefer keeping Mitch, and still trading Foles to Philly, after they send Wentz to Indy, or wherever. Build up the O-line, receiving corps, and I think Mitch can be average-ish, if used properly. Draft a QB with potential, and do it again next year.

Appears Eagles are not being offered what they deem acceptable for Wentz, hence no deal is imminent. Bears are said to be keeping their eye on other QB candidates. Personally, if a Wentz deal doesn't go thru for Bears, I'd be willing to sign Fitzpatrick to a 1 or 2 year deal, as a stop gap measure.

I haven't watched Fitzpatrick this year to know enough. I still want to send Foles back to Indy, once Philly trades Wentz.

Report out of Philly saying Eagles might be smart to sweeten the deal for Wentz by including TE Zach Ertz, who is not expected to be back next season. Bears could use a veteran as their primary TE, while Kmet continues to develop. Bears not expected to resign Jimmy Graham.

They are already going to have difficulty to fit Wentz under the cap (depending on what it ends up being). I would assume Ertz is getting paid, right?

Ertz already got paid and is coming off an injury season. If Foles and Cohen are included in the deal, or anyone else for that matter, that would free up money.

J.J. Watt and Texans have mutually agreed to part ways.

While I'd like to see him in Chicago, which there is a connection due to his wife playing for the Chicago Red Stars in the NWSL, I think it's a longshot to happen.

Latest report/rumor regarding Carson Wentz, detailing the best offer Eagles have gotten so far. Colts have reportedly offered two 2nd round picks and possibly a 3rd or 4th down the road. Eagles holding out for a 1st rounder, they say. Colts, Bears, Niners and, interestingly enough, Texans have inquired about him.

National Felony League plays the victim card so much who would know.. between committing crimes and playing victims, lucky they have time to play football.

it’s a stupid trophy !!

besides the Stanley Cup , ALL pro sports trophies are lame . MLB, NBA & NFL trophies are only coveted for what they represent . The hardware itself is a piece of polished metal .

now the Stanley Cup is different , mainly because of the fact they DO ALLOW the players and fans to interact with it . that’s the difference.

she needs to understand her father was just a silversmith . maybe a real good one . But the one he created is behind a glass window , probably at the Hall of Fame or maybe at NFL headquarters . The one Brady tossed is a fairly cheap copy , much like an Oscar statue . it wasn’t the Queens crown jewels .


an another topic - anyone else watch the espn show regarding Al Davis vs Pete Rozelle ?
really good and done with real footage & some good recreations
