    A great find. Are we doing a more run focused attack or is he going to be a flex option?
    I'm guessing he's there to take Cordarelle Patterson's snaps/role.

    I do like these moves I guess, but it'd be nice if we were to get out of FA with at least one legitimate starter at a position of need.

    Since he's from KC, he probably can do exactly what Nagy wants to do and be a flex option out of the backfield.

    A think CP84 is gone unless he wants to play for the vet min. If so, cut Wimms and give him his spot

    Pretty sure CP is gone dude. But yeah, Miller, Wims, and Ridley all feel pretty useless, and I would take him over any of that lot.

    I would hope there would be a concerted effort to run the footbaw. Thatís usually what smart coaches do when their QB isnít very good.

    More info on Damien Williams

    Bears signed RB Damien Williams, formerly of the Chiefs, to a one-year contract.

    Williams, released by KC this month after opting out of the 2020 season, has plenty of familiarity with Chicago's coaching staff. He worked with offensive coordinator Bill Lazor in Miami and knows head coach Matt Nagy's offensive scheme from their days together in Kansas City. Williams' addition to the Bears backfield very much complicates David Montgomery's path to the massive volume he saw in 2020. A mere four running backs last season had more total opportunity (rushing attempts plus targets) than Montgomery, who thrived in a series of great late-season matchups. J.D. McKissic, amazingly, was the only back to run more pass routes than Monty in 2020. That's not happening again. Pass-catching specialist Tarik Cohen coming back from injury and the Williams signing are major hits to Montgomery's usage and upside in the Bears offense. Williams will be a frequent target of Zero RB drafters in 2021 seasonal leagues.

    Helps when your team actually can run the ball effectively. There were signs of it when the line was healthier, particularly before Daniels got hurt. Albeit, probably have to chalk a lot of that up to how weak our early schedule was, but I digress.

    Is he the Williams that was good for KC? My context for his play is that I had both Williamses in FF, and one sucked while one was good lol

    Looking at the yards before contact, specifically Montegomery, horrible until week 12. he was averaging barely over a yard before contact until late in the season when it doubled. Doesn't matter who was throwing or running, that line was just plain awful until they finally got a bit of a groove against poor defensive teams

    True. Also have to stick with it though and show commitment. Especially when your QB was Mitch Trubisky and Nick foles

    I disagree with this mentality on a number of levels. If you're not running effectively on a lesser number of carries, what makes people think it's gonna work better if you do it more? You either have the scheme and personnel or you don't. It's pretty clear the Bears haven't.

    How much of that is on the scheming and how much of it is on the RBs/linemen, I'm not totally sure.

    I'll give you an olive branch that I think is what you would want to hear. End of the day, it's on Nagy to make an offense work, and he hasn't, so I'm not trying to completely deflect the guy of blame. He's had 3 years of really bad offenses. That's enough to get anyone fired, and while I still think there might be something there if he had the right pieces, I've still soured on him plenty, and would've been more than happy to move on.

    That said, if our offense was as effective as the Chiefs, I don't think anyone would care about our lack of commitment to the run (KC was 25th in rush attempts per game last year FYI). It's just what people complain about when their offenses suck like ours.

    Fair points. The fact that coward was repeatedly trotted out there is damning. Hard to run the ball when you canít figure out coward is terrible and refuse/canít put your best OL on the field. Took way too long to get the line sorted last season. That said, I do think Nagy has shown over the years that he gets away from running the ball and abandons/neglects it way too early. Thereís countless examples of that even going back to his KC playoff game

    My stance is pretty simple. It doesnít look good for Watson. These allegations could be true. At the same time, they may not be. We just donít know. I think thatís a pretty healthy stance to have. Admittedly, I will never look at Watson the same. So take that for what itís worth
    I'm with you on not believing everyone. Not everyone can be trusted, and less so in celebrity case.

    This is different though, it would be nearly impossible with know statistics for this to be untrue.

    Seems the main difference here is you're a bigger skeptic than me, which is fine. I just think you're wrong to assume this is anything other than like 99% likely.

    It was crazy they stuck with Coward so long.

    Was just thinking about the Massie cut and Ifedi signing. I thought cutting Massie was necessary this offseason, but to use his entire savings on a downgrade seems a little ridiculous. Ifedi has more upside, just seems like a lateral move.
