Is there more to this made up conversation than what I read on this blog? Is there a link to page 2 or something?

No. Maybe he'll go on that Irish podcast and share more though lol.

Sorry I should have warned the link didn't really give any "information" that couldn't be guessed at.

A 2nd round holdout feels really rare. And honestly sours me on him from the jump.

Why wouldn’t this sour you on what has been to date, a very questionable front office, to put it mildly?

It depends on what the contention is but I'm already not that hot on the new team at the helm

Pretty sure I saw the sticking point is guaranteed $ in the 3rd year, like in the manner of around $100k

I think I heard that too. Here are the players drafted right before and after Brisker and their guaranteed money in year 3. The players right before had guaranteed money and the players right after don't. I wish the bears wouldn't care about $100,000 and just sign him already.

46 Josh Paschal $275,000 guaranteed year 3
47 Phidarian Mathis $110,991 guaranteed year 3
48 Jaquan Brisker
49 Alontae Taylor $0 Guaranteed year 3
50 Tyquan Thornton $0 Guaranteed year 3

FWIW Fields is at the top of Tier 4, which is basically all the unproven guys. He's behind Jones and Lawrence and ahead of Wilson and Lance.

Funny how good this is making Bears fans feel on social media. The Bears will likely have 3 below average players on the interior. But I guess it's better than 2 below average and 1 flat out liability.

Schofield is a good pass blocker. Below average run blocker. Honestly, I feel like you can hide his run blocking if Patrick is good at C and your RT is a decent run blocker. Interesting here is this probably puts a position change for Jenkins or Borom out of the forefront and they are battling it out with the rookie Jones for the 2 OT spots. I know Jenkins was not their pick, but no way this regime can NOT start easily the highest picked (aka most talented) player on the line somewhere.

And nobody knows if Robert Quinn is going to show up or not.

I liked the Poles hire. I'm 100% in on giving him a chance. But this offseason has been a disasters no matter how optimistic you look at things going forward (and I'm pretty bullish on the direction in general).

But if you're keeping score at home......

- Best player holding out
- Little support of your potential franchise QB in terms of money spent or draft capital used
- Fired the guy that helped hire him
- 3 of the players he's added have been arrested, after a pretty clean track record from the previous regime.

Lot of other stuff too. I'm pretty optimistic that the team can be more competitive than the masses think due to players buying into a new regime, an actual plan on offense, an elite talent at QB and overall an easy schedule. But it's tough to pull a decent season on the field out of a disasterous offseason off the field.

When you spend the offseason threatening to surround your QB with piss poor receivers and linemen, then signing mediocrity looks like a huge upgrade.

Brilliant effort.

Brisker signed. Roquan and Quinn in attendance today. Linemen signed. All is well at Halas Hall.

yep - if they add another receiver they'll accomplish basically everything we wanted them to during the offseason.
