    I believe the Lions saw how our entire team sucked when we played them last year.

    I'm not making excuses for Mason.....I want Pickett....., but You are definitely making excuses for Trubisky. Since I can honestly tell You I watched every Chicago game that was not on during the Steelers games. I do know players have ,and will get better after 10 games(ask Bradshaw), but not very many after over 50 games.
    Also not many widely regarded "Terrible Head Coaches " win coach of the year.

    I will believe it when Schefter or Rapoport report it, not some unnamed source.

    I don't think a team is dumb enough to give up a fourth round pick for Mason.

    I doubt any QB would look good in that Chicago offense.

    Jimmy Garoppolo will become a free agent before week 1. If he is still on the roster for week 1 his $24.2 million contract is fully guaranteed.

    “With the team now all-on on Trey Lance, they’ll squat on Garoppolo and hope for a trade opportunity to materialize,” says Florio. “If it doesn’t, they will absolutely cut him before Week One, when his $24.2 million salary would otherwise become fully guaranteed as termination pay, under the Collective Bargaining Agreement.”

    Who out there would trade for Mason Rudolph knowing they can have Jimmy G for free in 2 weeks? I would take Jimmy G over Mason or Mitch right now!


    My crazy money all along has been saying Jimmy G is going to Seattle. Everyone has been telling me there is no way San Fran trades Jimmy G to Seattle, but if Jimmy becomes a free agent bet the farm that he is going to Seattle!

    Like trading up 10 spots, giving up a 2nd and then a 3rd the next year for a cream puff bust. Check.

    If a team loses their starter to injury, there might be a desperate team willing to give up a fourth for Mason then.

    Yet, Nagy managed to do it.

    Yes, you are making excuses for Rudolph. I didn't claim that Nagy was the only reason Trubisky disappointed in Chicago, but I have heard that claim quite often.

    I'm not sure whether to call BS on your claim about watching Bears games or wonder why we should consider the opinion of someone damaged enough to do that to themselves. :)

    I think that means that the trading of Rudolph is imminent. Why play a QB that is not in your future plans? Play the guys that will actually be on the team this year.

    You don't have 2 agree with any of this, but Yes....I watch the Bears..when the Steelers are not on. I also watch the Saints if the Bears, or Steelers are not on, and then the raven,and the rest of our division the same. For various reasons.

    I would keep Mason

    I can’t see going into the season with two rookie backups

    One of which was 7th round and no reps

    I don't think they will trade Rudolph just for the sake of getting rid of him, but they could certainly do it for a draft pick in the fourth round or higher or a player who can help them at another position. They really haven't shown much interest in preparing Oladokun for a role with the team this season.
