    Hopefully people were still watching to see Cohen pound his chest after a 2 yard loss, while the Saints just laughed.

    Sad thing for Bears fans, Trubisky is padding stats in garbage time. This is just like Blake Bortles at Jacksonville.

    Saints are worse at onside kicks today than Brandon Bostick. I didn’t think that was possible

    Chicago is dominating the special teams today!

    I can't understand why the easy reviews take so long.

    I thought today was the first time that Brissett looked like a viable long term starter for them. Reich's scheme and playcalling certainly help but he's definitely making strides. I hope he plays well enough to make drafting a QB next spring a really tough decision. Their defense is coming together, too. Lot of young talent on the roster.

    Does anyone else hit the mute button anytime Jerome Boger is going to talk? I can't stand the way he talks.

    Yeah. They have a difficult stretch coming up - in the next four weeks they play the Saints in New Orleans along with two games against the Niners - but they've shown more progress than I thought they would this year. Once David Johnson is healthy they're going to have one hell of a two headed monster at RB with him and Edmonds.

    The 2018 QB draft class (in order they were selected, limited to the first round only):

    Mayfield - Browns
    Darnold - Jets
    Allen - Bills
    Rosen - Cards
    Jackson - Ravens

    Think any of those teams wish they could get a do-over? I think the Jets like what they have with Darnold and Josh Allen is far from perfect but Buffalo is making it work. Rosen appears to be a bust, although that's only partially his fault IMO. Lamar Jackson is an emerging MVP candidate for the Ravens.

    It was bad enough that they traded up for him. That they passed on Watson and Mahomes in the same draft is the real kick in the balls. I give credit to Ryan Pace for pulling off the deal that brought in Mack, but Pace's run as GM in Chicago is going to be defined by his selection of Mitchell Trubisky.

    That's what happens when you have a head coach pulling double duty as the unofficial GM. One guy can't be focused on the long term and the immediate future at the same time.

    This Jets v NE game is a laugher. Who’s worse: Darnold or Trubisky? Both are tough to watch.

    One of the Fox/CBS studio guys picked the Jets yesterday because Darnold was back.

    At least Darnold is playing like his 3rd game and coming back from mono. Trubisky just sucks. Edit didn't realize he played last year.

    Darnold has a cake schedule coming up so we'll see how good he really is. If he can get them 4 or 5 more wins and put up some solid passing numbers then Ill believe in him. Trubisky is just garbage.

    Yeah. I can't beat Darnold up too much; the Pats D has done the same thing to every other QB they've played this season.

    Another Pats super bowl year more than likely. Yawn.

    Let's see them play at least one good team before we call it a season.
