Chicago Bears: 3 under the radar free agent edge rushers

The Chicago Bears will very likely be looking for at least one edge rusher this offseason. Entering the offseason, the Chicago Bears could end up very thin at the edge rusher position.

Grading Ryan Pace: The 2017 Trades

Grading Ryan Pace: The 2017 Trades

Ryan Pace has taken a lot of aggressive actions in his time as a GM, and most of that aggression has come in the form of trading players for picks and picks for players. He likes to move around. In 2017, most of his moves were good ones. In the last article, I tried to evaluate Ryan Pace’s early trade moves. Now I am moving to more recent work. I am still not evaluating the 2018 trades for two simple reasons, though. The first is that it’s just too early. The second is that if anyone needs help in evaluating the trade for Khalil Mack, that person should just go watch video of Khalil...

Another honor for Olivier Vernon, who makes PFF top 101 players of 2018 list

OV checks in at No. 70, the first Giant to make the list When it comes to Olivier Vernon, New York Giants fans spend a lot of time complaining about the money he makes, the games he misses and the quarterback sacks he doesn’t get. Vernon’s peers and the analysts who study the game for a living, though, just keeping honoring the Giants defensive end/outside linebacker. First, Vernon was named a Pro Bowl alternate after the 2018 season. He ended up playing in the game as a replacement for Khalil Mack of the Chicago Bears.

Earlier this week, former Raider and current Cowboy receiver Amari Cooper was interviewed on the ThomaHawk Podcast, hosted by Andrew Hawkins and former Browns left tackle Joe Thomas.

The price of winning: Bears raise ticket prices

The price of winning: Bears raise ticket prices

The price of winning has arrived. Win the NFC North, have one of the brightest young teams in the NFL, and allow Khalil Mack to reign terror in only ways he can, and you have the recipe for good business. On Friday, the Bears announced that they are raising ticket prices for the 2019 season on an average of four percent. For season ticket holders, the prices will invariably range across nine tiers. After Chicago had frozen ticket price raises for three of the last four years (justifiably so considering an eminently poor product on the field), this was an inevitability after a division...

Grading Ryan Pace: Early Trades

Ryan Pace loves moving players and picks to give himself a better chance in the draft. This piece will dive into his early efforts to reshape the Bears using the trade market. Ryan Pace seems to like to make trades. It’s way too early (technically) to judge the impact of some of his later trades like the massive move to get Khalil Mack, but enough time has passed that we can evaluate a lot of his earlier moves. Just to simplify things, any move made before the start of the 2017 draft is up for evaluation. Note that this means that some of his best work, like the trade for up to get...

Part 7 of an 11-part review of the 2018 Bears season. Ryan Pace already had a reputation for being aggressive. When he targeted a first-round pick that he and his staff had confidence in — and he didn’t want to risk missing out — he packaged a pick or picks to move up and grab him. That’s what...
