Who should the KC Chiefs look to add at quarterback? Obviously, the Kansas City Chiefs have
The Jacksonville Jaguars, like many teams in the National Football League, found themselves in a precarious situation last spring. A global pandemic meant scouts and coaches were limited to tape when evaluating players. As such, the Jaguars kept their free agent signings modest. From there, the list shrunk even more as a handful of those signed elected to retire and/or opt-out for the season. There were six though that saw significant time on the field for the Jacksonville Jaguars this season and we’ll spend
Well, where there is smoke there is fire... and it seems like the Chicago Bears are legitimately involved in trade discussions with the Eagles for Carson Wentz. After some wild Twitter speculation Friday, and reports throughout Saturday that the trade is coming closer to fruition, we got legitimate reports that the Bears were involved. Now, keep in mind the Bears are searching for a quarterback because general manager Ryan Pace selected Mitch Trubisky over Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson in the 2017 NFL Draft.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have more decisions to make at the quarterback position this offseason outside of who their starter will be. Such is the case when you are fresh off a 1-15 season that saw three quarterbacks take turns as starter. The Jaguars currently hold the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and are expected to use the selection on a quarterback, likely Clemson's Trevor Lawrence. But what about the backup role for their rookie quarterback? Would they want to enter 2021 with Gardner Minshew
If you are like Joe, you have gone through untold bottles of Crown Royal, cases of Big Storm beer and therapy sessions which cost a fortune to try to purge the Lovie Smith era from your brain’s hard drive. Still, the memories haunt. For example, poor Mike Evans was baptized into the NFL with career loser Stewart McClown and Mike Glennon as his quarterbacks. Lawd! Lovie benched Glennon three times in two seasons likely because he was a holdover from the commander Greg Schiano era. Anyway, this morning in his
When Ryan Pace was brought in to be the Bears general manager in 2015, it was a different time. Pace promised sustained success, and he delivered. In fact, there are three key areas where he exceeded any reasonable expectations. Success at quarterback The Bears franchise had previously flirted with the idea that fans would watch no matter who the quarterback was, but Pace really elevated this to an art form. According to those with no knowledge of the situation, Pace considers this to be one of his crowning
The Chicago Bears have major questions at quarterback, and general manager Ryan Pace said "everything is on the table" when it comes to addressing the position this offseason, per Jeff Dickerson of ESPN. "As far as the plan at quarterback, to get to where we want to go, we definitely need more out of that position," Pace said Wednesday. Perhaps the biggest problem for the Bears is that Pace will be the one making those decisions. He traded up to select Mitchell Trubisky No. 2 overall ahead of the likes of Patrick
In his six seasons as Chicago Bears general manager, Ryan Pace has brought in three quarterbacks to be the starter. Perhaps the most significant result of this week’s news that Pace will return for the 2021 season is that he now will have a hand in likely selecting a fourth. Questions about the Bears quarterback situation — and why there’s belief Pace can find the right player this time — dominated Wednesday’s video conference call with Chairman George McCaskey, President and CEO Ted Phillips, Pace
Ryan Pace inherited Jay Cutler when he became the Chicago Bears general manager in 2015. From there, he signed Mike Glennon to a big contract. Then he traded up to draft Mitchell Trubisky No. 2 overall. Then he cut Glennon and added perennial backup Chase Daniel as completion. Finally, in 2020, he traded for and reworked Nick Foles' contract, who was benched in favor of a lame-duck Trubisky this season. The merry-go-round will continue in 2021. With Bears chairman George McCaskey bringing back Pace
A 15-game losing streak cost Doug Marrone his job after four seasons, but the Jaguars still landed the biggest prize of the draft by securing the No. 1 overall pick. They are expected to select former Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence when the NFL Draft occurs on April 29. But it's uncertain who is going to be the backup behind Lawrence next season. Will it be Gardner Minshew or Jake Luton or someone not currently on the Jaguars' roster? Mike Glennon, who went 0-5 as a starter this season, is a free agent
Ryan Pace will get a fourth chance to fix a quarterback mess he inherited six years ago and has made worse at every turn since. First it was Mike Glennon (four starts, $18.5 million). Then Mitch Trubisky (instead of Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes). Then Nick Foles (statistically one of the worst starting quarterbacks in the NFL in 2020). Scroll to continue with content Now, armed with the 20th overall pick and, right now, the 13th-lowest amount of cap space, Pace is in line to acquire another starting
The rollercoaster Chicago Bears season came to an appropriate end yesterday as the Bears offense bungled their way to a 21-9 defeat at the hands of the New Orleans Saints. It was apropos that this was the game that aired on Nickelodeon as the Bears results on offense were laughable. At one point the Bears had more punts in the game than they did first downs. They were all of 1 of 10 on third down conversion and the one conversion was on a meaningless drive at the end of the game. While not all of the blame should
The Chicago Bears could find success with one of these three quarterback rooms Chicago Bears (Photo by Adam Hunger/Getty Images) The Chicago Bears need to address the quarterback position in 2021. We all understand this is important as Mitch Trubisky heads to free agency and Nick Foles has proven to be a liability in this offense. Tyler Bray has been nothing but a place holder on the practice squad. Something must change in the quarterback room in 2021 no matter who is coaching or who is managing the personnel.
After a few tough weeks for D/STs, our Week 9 fantasy defense rankings are looking pretty strong, at least through the top 12. Bye weeks are still thinning the rankings as a whole, as the Rams, Eagles, Browns, and Bengals are idle this week. That said, the waiver wire streamers available this week are better than usual thanks to some favorable matchups, and that helps strengthen the starting tier as we continue to target mistake-prone quarterbacks and shaky offensive lines. The mistake-prone quarterbacks we're
Chicago Bears (Photo by Carmen Mandato/Getty Images) The Chicago Bears could see a huge name hit the trade market real soon. Let’s flash back almost four years ago, shall we? The Chicago Bears entered the 2017 NFL Draft with the third overall pick. It was time for a big change around Halas Hall. These Bears were set to invest in their future. Chicago had already signed veteran quarterback Mike Glennon to be a stop-gap starter for a guy they would likely take in the second, third or fourth rounds of this draft.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are on the clock for the 2021 NFL Draft. ESPN’s Todd McShay released his latest mock draft and with the Jaguars at the top of board and needing a new quarterback it’s a no-brainer — Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence is the pick. And we’re not looking back, folks. 1. Jacksonville Jaguars Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson* Did you expect anyone else? I haven’t seen a quarterback prospect quite like Lawrence in almost a decade, and the Jaguars are certainly in the market for one.
Why the Bills will cover the spread The Bills are absolutely rolling right now. They scored an average of 37 points per game in their last eight games. They finished 7-1 in those games, and would have won all eight if it wasn’t for a DeAndre Hopkins Hail-Mary catch. The Bills covered the spread in all eight of those games. The Colts defense has some holes on the back end. The Colts have given up 53 completions of 20+ yards this season, which ranks 23rd in the league. They’re pass defense overall has struggled
Sam Darnold, New York Jets. Mandatory Credit: Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports These NFL quarterbacks likely played their final games in Week 17 with their current teams. The 2020 NFL season has come to an end and with that, so have these quarterbacks’ tenures with their teams. That’s not guaranteed, of course, but the way things have been trending could mean these three quarterbacks are not starting for the same team they started for in Week 17. This list won’t include guys like Mike Glennon or Andy Dalton,
