THREAD: The #Bears are rolling the dice on big-time upside with South Carolina DL Zacch Pickens at No. 64.
Pickens brings serious length and good athleticism to the table as a defensive tackle.

He fits the physical mold of an Eberflus 3-technique very well, so I’m far from stunned they loved him here. #Bears
Pickens offers impressive sheer speed and power as a DT, and his pure physical talent can make him tough to block.

He bursts well off the snap and has a strong anchor needed to eat gaps against the run, as well as create penetration. #Bears

THREAD: The #Bears have given themselves a loaded secondary by drafting Miami CB Tyrique Stevenson in Round 2.
Stevenson’s physicality and patience stand out to me in man coverage.

He maintains good footwork and hand usage through a WR’s stems, and he’s combative at the catch point. #Bears
Stevenson is a sound processor who works off rub routes well and times his jumps on routes effectively.

His above-average route recognition skills really help him out in coverage. #Bears

THREAD: The #Bears drafted Florida DT Gervon Dexter with the No. 53 pick, giving them a much-needed upgrade for their DL.
Dexter is one of the better interior run defenders in the 2023 draft.

He has impressive grip strength and a strong anchor, as well as very good situational awareness against the run. #Bears
The sheer strength that Dexter plays with allows him to dominate at the point of attack.

He lands his strikes well and has a nice arsenal of hand techniques to stack and shed blocks. #Bears

THREAD: The #Bears finally found their star right tackle. Tennessee OT Darnell Wright is the pick at No. 10.
Wright is 333 pounds with long arms and a nasty punch at the point of attack.

For such a big guy, he bursts well off the line of scrimmage in pass protection, too. He tested insanely well at the Combine. #Bears
Wright is a fantastic run blocker who plays with a nasty demeanor at the point of attack.

He does a great job of generating power out of his lower half to drive defenders off the line of scrimmage. #Bears

Getting past the 4029 $ES level increases the probability that this is further along inside the iii off 3980 and more than just a micro 1.

Here is a 🧵on how we use @AviGilburt 's #FibonacciPinBall method at the micro level for clues to the larger pattern.
In any given third wave of any degree we know that the sub-wave one will target the .382, .500 or sometimes the .618.
As mentioned last night the 4017 level could have just been (3) of micro 1.

The little high consolidation was a (4) and this is now the (5) of micro 1 to the furthest .618 Fib inside the iii.

I also attended my first fancy dinner party in which many utensils were provided...
My team somehow convinced me to sing the national anthem at one of my campaign events... which I was off pitch for and will never do again lol

0GEX stays at 3960. There doesn't seem to be much incentive for dealers to push prices higher with few puts above 4100. But bears cutting losses could push prices higher in the coming hours.
$TSLA has turned red. Don't be surprised if other stocks follow suit.
Both #CPI releases gave the stock market a squeeze, but the charts look vastly different.

1. Trading Roquan Smith is the sort of tough decision no previous GM would've had the guts to make.

Ryan Poles understands the modern NFL.

Off-the-ball LBs don't impact games like 30 years ago.

Smith is having his best year and the #Bears still have the 2nd-worst run defense.
2. Chicago now has 9 projected picks in 2023, including four in the first three rounds.

2nd (BLT)
4th (PHI)
5th (BLT)
7th comp*

Based on his first draft, Poles has a chance to completely reshape the foundation of this team.

3. What makes this even better is the emergence of Justin Fields.

In the past 4 games, he has completed 64% of his passes with 5 TDs, 2 INTs, and a 97.6 passer rating.

He did this against three top 15 defenses with turnstiles for OL and high school gym teachers for WRs. #Bears

Justin Fields at halftime has completed 9 of 13 passes for 133 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT (off a tipped pass).

He also has 10 rushes for 74 yards. #Bears rolled up 215 yards in the first half.
Here is a complete list of #Bears QBs to run for 100+ yards in a game:

- Bobby Douglass Dec 17, 1972 127 yards at Oakland
- Douglass Oct 15, 1972 117 yards at Cleveland
- Douglass Nov 4, 1973 100 yards at Green Bay
Why it took until Week 7 to start calling designed QB runs for Justin Fields, I don't have the slightest idea. But this is nothing like what the Patriots saw on film in preparation for this game.

1a. People are acting like Ryan Poles sabotaged this roster.

That's because he did.

He torpedoed it, replacing almost 2/3rds of the personnel.

His opinion was evident from the moment he took over.

It was bad and would likely have to get worse before getting better. #Bears
1b. The truth is nobody would be complaining about Poles' strategy if Justin Fields weren't on this roster.

His presence complicates everything.

The development clock on him began even before Poles arrived.

The GM was in a lose-lose situation. #Bears
1c. Poles was expected to do what JAX and the Jets did for Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson.

This despite having neither the money nor multiple 1st round picks to do so.

Forget the public messages. He knew this year would be bad. In fact, he was probably counting on it. #Bears

Everything NFL fantasy football...

You need to know from Week 3.

To dominate in Week 4.
#Saints vs #Panthers

Alvin Kamara totaled 17 touches for 73 yards after a Week 2 absence.

Caught just 2 of 7 targets.
Rookie Chris Olave led the team in targets for a second straight week…

With a 31% target share (13 targets).

He’s hit at least a 31% target in two consecutive weeks.

72 yards in 1st half alone (5 targets).

1. Justin Fields has 28 passes through two games. It is really difficult to judge a QB like that.

He’s far from perfect but everything about this offense screams work-in-progress.

The best thing for everybody is to wait until the end of October. We should have answers by then.
2. Really hate to say this because he seems like a great kid.

Cole Kmet isn’t the guy at tight end.

Good tight ends don’t need constant scheming to get open. They also catch the ball.

He’s developing into a very good blocker, but the #Bears need more from the passing game.
3. The far bigger surprise through two games is Darnell Mooney.

He should not be this invisible.

Two catches through two games is bad. Really bad.

One has to hope Velus Jones’ return can bring some juice to the passing game. #Bears

1. The secret to the #Bears beating the Packers has never been complicated.

Want the answer? Check out the turnover margin for each time they won in the Aaron Rodgers era.

2008 - 2-2
2010 - 2-1
2013 - 1-0
2015 - 2-0
2018 - 1-1

They've never won on the wrong side of it.
2. The #Bears are 3-2 in their last five meetings with the Packers where the QB didn't throw an interception.

For all the talk about Rodgers this and Rodgers that, the fact is the Bears QBs have been grossly inefficient against Green Bay.

Justin Fields had three INTs last year.
3. It was frustrating the #Bears didn't weaponize Fields' legs more last year against the Packers.

He ran the ball 15 times for 107 yards last year against them.

Tyler Huntley had 73 yards against them in one game. for Baltimore.

Get him out of the pocket.

Ironing out kinks in the viz but here are #Chiefs vs #Cardinals receiving stats to tide you over.

Juju looks promsing, MVS isn't a thing but playing over Hardman in 2 WR sets, don't worry about Skyy.

Hollywood will be fine, Ertz part time coming off injury, idk about Dortch.
#Steelers @ @Bengals

Diontae will be fine, really strong Pat F showing, meh from Claypool and Pickens.

Chase is a star, prob don't care about Boyd even with Tee sidelined, even pre-Higgins injury it was firmly the Chase show.
Air yards data looking a bit suspect for a few teams, going to pause for now

A couple of years ago I published a weekly matchups thread with charts for each game, and this year I'm bringing it back! While I'll normally share on Thursdays, I'm so excited for Week 1 to start that I'm sharing this week's today!

Let's have a great season, everyone! 🏈
Before I start, here's a description of the 3 charts:
1. Comparing OFF vs. DEF key stat rankings
2. Player distribution of 2021/22 DK points
3. Player % of team rushing/receiving expected fpts

In addition to these charts, I'll also include one stat nugget relevant to that game!
#Bills @ #Rams (+2.5)
Game total: 52
BUF implied team total: 27.25
LA implied team total: 24.75
Key stat: Buffalo's defensive pass EPA/play went from -0.112 (2nd) with Tre'Davious White (weeks 1-12) to 0.035 (15th) without him (weeks 13-20). He's out Thursday night.

Been playing around with this for months. Here is a Non-QB Offensive Talent index entering the 2022 NFL season. Each % represents the % above or below avg for that position.

I sorted by median score to reflect each teams true middle, but also includes their average scores.
Some #Bears notes:

- Darnell Mooney very well might push up to true WR1 territory this year, but based on his existing production he is a high end WR2 and low end WR1

- The offensive line is still below average, but adding Reiff and Schofield helps it a lot.
-Braxton Jones is probably be overvalued here (see rookie notes below)

- Using the median, the Bears offense comes in 29th

- Using the average, the Bears offense comes in 30th

- Ultimately, this offense lacks high end playmakers to offset the average to below average starters

May 24, 2020, I made a bold call on $MATIC during the bear, on my TradingView ac. The price was 0.0277

Of my first 5 public Trading View 'Bear' calls, 2 - 100X + ($MATIC, $KAI) ,1 - 50X ($WAVES), 1 - 15X ($ALGO), 1 - 10X ($RVN)

At the time, those first public calls were laughed at. Probably rightly so. As I had no 'public' record. I had my Twitter account from 2008 but never really publically tweeted until a few years ago.

What most did not know....
I had had many years of wins & failures.

I was handed my butt on a platter many times. I used to leverage trade (gambling). Until I wiped 90% of an entire portfolio on one trade where I decided to have a lunch break and the unthinkable took place.

Yes, 1 of those...

The debate about which new #Bears draft pick OL will be the best is a fun one. I decided to do a small dive on Braxton Jones and Zach Thomas since they both played a common opponent. I’m no OL expert by any means but here’s what I gathered - a thread 🧵
Let’s start with Braxton Jones. At 6’5 and 310lbs with almost 36” arms Jones has the ideal frame for an NFL LT. In the clips below, he is number 77 and playing LT.
Here, Jones uses his speed and strength to completely overpower his man. Once his hands are engaged, he’s hard to shake and he washes his man 5+ yards down field
