[FemaleInput] This is 100% true. In fact, probably 7 out of 10 of the male population in general looks better rocking the Vin Diesel than not. [/FemaleInput]


Take yourself a minute to look of Patrik Laine of the Winnipeg Jets and imagine him rocking Vin Diesel look. This kid isn't even 19 years old yet and his hairline literally starts halfway to the back of his head and by God he's got teeth like a mule.

The only other valid argument to be made is that the poor SOB is gonna look like he was beaten with an ugly stick no matter how much hair he has.

I didn't think we were allowed to call people ugly anymore? Or is it just women we can't call ugly? It's so confusing. We need Kenda/Babe to rule on this.

Looks like another team realizes Glennon isn't anything more than a stop gap at his best.

Planning for the future. Everyone knew they'd target a QB at some point. The must have insanely fallen in love with Mitch during their process. It happens. This is actually great for them too, they don't have to throw Mitch in right away. I know that crazy to say in today's NFL about the 2nd overall pick, but if Jeff Fisher has the balls to do it John Fox should as well.
Arizona went out and got Matt Leinart, a top prospect in his draft, yet it was journeyman Kurt Warner that held off the young winner from USC and took the Cardinals to a Superbowl. Brees held off Rivers. Alex Smith has made a career in coaches not believing in him. Glennon will get every opportunity to show why he should be a starter in this league. It's up to him to seize it. If he plays great he'll hold the job and have a nice 2018- where ever that may be.

The money they paid him indicates they see a value in having him as their QB in 2017. That'll probably be it, sadly. But nobody claimed he was a long-term answer who would going to hoist Lombardis. If that says, "Stop Gap" to you, then you're right. But there's a difference between Doug Pederson starting for Donovan McNabb in 1999, and what Glennon will be doing this year. There will be an expectation the team will win games with Glennon out there. Frankly, I'm just happy because maybe we get a shot to bring him back after the season (if not sooner.)

Glennon isn't coming back here to settle as a back up. Especially if he starts this whole season and does anywhere near decent. Browns will be ready for another Journeyman next year, I'm sure. Jets still haven't solved their problem. If Bears cut him loose, maybe he could find a spot in Arizona to replace grandpa Palmer.


He's not tucking his tail to come be out back up again. Unless absolutely no one bites. And if he sucks hard in Chicago, why would we want him?

Bears FO clearly feel in love with Mitch. Nothing wrong with that he's a very talented prospect. They didn't to hedge their bets to secure what's the most important position in sports. Mike Glennon could light it up and lead them into the playoffs, in which case there's still no rush to start Mitch and he can "Rivers" or "Rodgers" it for another year. A winning outcome for the Bears. Glennon is subpar, in which case they have a groomed-for-a-year QB ready to take over next season and hit the ground running. A good situation too.

Now sure, it could end up like the Rams last year, which would suck. But IMO it will end up something closer to Kurt Warner. Either Arizona version where he holds off a top rookie QB (Leinart) with great play and gives them a great playoff run or NY Giants where he steps in for awhile while the top rookie QB (Eli) is groomed and developed before taking over.

I don't think this is an indictment on Glennon at all. He is what he is. I don't think anyone thought the Bears were going ALL-IN w/ Glennon for the next 5-10 years and not using a very high draft pick this year or next a QB.

The Bears obviously had plans to overhaul the QB position this offseason. So they signed the top FA and drafted the top prospect.

Glennon will be the starter in 2017. If he plays well, he'll delay the Mitchell Trubisky era and earn himself another HUGE payday as a stopgap QB after the 2018 seasons. Glennon will earn $30m the next 2 seasons in Chicago as long as he's on the roster. Get another team to do that in the 2018 offseason and Glennon will earn over $50m in his NFL career (not bad..).

Worst case scenario, he's terrible next year and the Trubisky era starts early.

People are, IMO, being rather obnoxiously armchair GM-ish about the "Why did they pay Glennon if they wanted Trubisky, dat are stoopid" junk. They paid Glennon before they were totally sold on any QB, and they had two teams that need QBs in front of them. Also, the QBs on the tabnle this year all need some time to develop before playing. They made a smart play signing Glennon no matter how it fell out. It's questionable if they needed to trad with SF, but nobody knows what was being offered by who.

Glennon should start this year, and hopefully for him he takes the job and runs with it, making them not play Tru, kind of a reverse Romo/Dak. He's a good guy.

This is probably true. I hope Glennon lights it up like Drew Brees did the year after the Chargers drafted Rivers and gets himself another huge contract to be someone's actual starter.

If Glennon were the answer then they don't fall in love with any other QB. Do you think OBP would fall in love with a QB prospect and trade up for him with Winston in house? Hell no. Either you have a QB or you don't and the Bears obviously realized, $15M later, that they don't.

There has been nothing going on to "change their mind".

Rumors have it that there is a battle going on between the GM and the Coach. Sounds like one is sold on Tubisky, one isn't, not to mention all their other picks.

Mike gets front row tickets to another franchise imploding.

Smart, but I would definitely like to know what Mike was told. We can all feel how we want about his play and potential, but he was a very solid option for the many QB needy teams. Why did he sign with the Bears? Did they tell him that QB would continue to be a primary (to the point of dumping more good picks to move up) draft focus? I'm not saying they had to fill in all their would be FA QBs of all their franchise plans, but my feeling is the opposite was likely indicated to Mike. Maybe he doesn't even give a **** and he's ready to bury this rookie. I wanted Mike to get a legit shot. He seems like a good dude. Now there are rumblings of a HC/GM riff and that thing may be imploding before we even get to training camp.

Yeah they are saying John Fox didn't even know they were drafting Trubisky. Also reports that they are already compiling a head coach list. Sounds like Fox might be out after this season.


Way too early prediction: John Fox is the Bengals next HC.

CBS Sports had an article today that Glennon was not told about Trubisky, which isn't a surprise if Fox didn't even know. Glennon apparently felt "cheated on".

Yup, and adding salt to the wound is that Glennon was one of the featured players at the draft party. So he got to be there with the fans watching the Bears pick his replacement.

Yes sir. Word in the league is that Glennon is totally PO'ed and that him feeling "cheated on" was basically the only diplomatic way they could report his reaction.
