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. Image
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

Weekly timeframe.
It could find support at 35k over the next few days.
Or, it can dip to the highlight support zone of 29k-31k.

Over the next week I will be recapping my overall thoughts on what every team did in the 2022 #NFLDraft.

Today I will start with the NFC West and cover the @AZCardinals, @RamsNFL, @49ers and @Seahawks
the @AZCardinals recap

2 (55) TE Trey McBride
3 (87) EDGE Cam Thomas
3 (100) Edge Myjai Sanders
6 (201) RB Keaontay Ingram
6 (215) OG Lecitus Smith
7 (244) CB Christian Matthew
7 (256) LB Jesse Luketa
7 (257) OG Marquis Hayes

fav pick: Thomas
value pick: Luketa
? pick: McBride
draft haul has to include trading for M Brown giving them explosive speed WR they need with loss of Kirk & suspension of Nuk. I think they had more pressing needs than TE after giving Ertz a new 3 yr deal. Think Thomas can become starter & Luketa could have went early 4th

Nicholas Morrow Film Study Thread

I was curious about some of the #Bears free agents, so I decided to go watch some film and share my observations, in case anyone else is also curious. I started with LB Nicholas Morrow.

The game I watched was Nov. 29, 2020, and the Raiders got crushed by the Falcons 43-6, due to committing 5 turnovers. Morrow, however, filled up the stat sheet, with 10 tackles, 2 PBU, 1 TFL, and 1 QB hit.

Morrow spent a good chunk of time in man on the RB. In this play, he starts lined up opposite the RB, but when he sees the RB heading to the opposite side of the formation, he switches to the TE.

Something to keep in mind with Travis Smith's arrival to the #Bears.

Yes, he is a student of Rod Marinelli and several others.

He's also got enough different experiences to make his own product. We are not going to see the typical front used in any "Tampa 2" concept.
For example, he's worked with both behemoths and smallish guys at DT. They weren't exactly focused purely on speed or explosiveness like what we saw under Lovie Smith between 2004 and 2012.

Instead, his DTs would be used as gap destroyers to set up his ends for easy 1-on-1's.
Eddie Goldman could fit in as a shade if he's kept. Khyiris Tonga would be a better fit, though. Bilal Nichols makes sense as a prototypical 3-tech. But I think the Bears will add someone new to that undertackle spot.

Matt Eberflus preached flexibility. That's key.

As we prepare for the Ryan Pace Bowl, and Matt Nagy’s last home game, I’m reflecting on (IMO) Nagy’s biggest mistake in how he approached 2021. He never realized that Justin Fields’ development was paramount for the organization (present and future). 1/
Fields was his lifeline and he neglected to understand that.

Instead Nagy remained stubbornly focused on his “system” that had churned through multiple QBs and produced the same paltry results since the end of the 2018 season.

The vast majority of time and energy from him, Flip and Lazor should’ve been spent in learn mode, what does Justin do best, what concepts does he prefer, what doesn’t he understand and using that as the starting point for the offense.

🧵 Nagy Thread. 🧵

1) I think the #Bears fully intended to fire him after Thursday. However, I think this leaking may cause them to back out if they win. The optics and images on the business side are prioritywith the McCaskeys over football and firing this way is a bad look.
2) With that said, I think they absolutely did tell him today that he would not be the Bears HC in 22 one way or another. Weather they told him Thursday is his last day, or that he needed to win to keep the job as an audition for the next 6 weeks is anyones guess…
3) As much as I don’t want him anywhere near my football team, I do feel for Matt Nagy as a person. He’s clearly very hard working and invested. By all accounts a nice guy. He’s just not any good at his job, and his personal brand has gotten him 2 more years than he should.

An overwhelming number of #Bears’ players want Matt Nagy gone, league sources say. “He lost some of the locker room last season, but now it’s gone,” one source adds. One key holdup: No HC in the 101-year franchise history has ever been let go during the season.
Short turnaround for the #Bears, who head to Detroit on Thanksgiving Day to play the winless #Lions.
Hard to imagine a scenario where GM Ryan Pace survives as well. Pace has been given full reign and made the lion’s share of mistakes, inc hiring Nagy. The #Bears, under his guidance, have the NFL’s eighth-worst record (45-61) during his seven seasons.

#Bears postgame 🧵.

1) Well, when I woke up this morning to the reality that food poisoning had set in overnight and spent the whole morning in bed, I was pretty positive that was the most miserable thing today would being. Then a Matt Nagy Bears game happened. (Thread)
2) Another complete personification of the Nagy era. Offense that couldn’t score any points in the first half. Young franchise QB looking lost. Finally doing just enough to win, and then the vaunted D folding on a game winning drive. This is how the Nagy era will be remembered.
3) So this is the end of Nagy. It’s been teetering on the brink for 2 years now and today it went over the edge as Watkins runs free on what should have been a routine put away drive against a QB making the first start and looking bad all day.

** Post Week 10 // Pre-Week 11 Thought Dump **

Coming off another wild week of upsets.

Among NFL best records:

8-2 #Titans have lost to 2-7 #Jets
7-2 #Cowboys to 5-5 #Broncos
7-3 #Rams to 4-5 #49ers
6-3 #Bills to 2-7 #Jaguars
6-3 #Bucs to 3-6 #WFT
6-3 #Ravens to 3-7 #Dolphins
Random Takes & Notes:

- Standing by Rhamondre Stevenson as #Patriots best RB with Wk 10 as confirmation bias
- Rashod Bateman hasn’t hurt Marquise Brown whatsoever; The Real Hollywood Avging 13 targets since Bateman’s return
- Jeff Wilson SZN if Eli Mitchell (finger) sits v Jags
- Josh Allen used play action on 57% of Week 10 drops — nearly 2x the highest rate of any team all last year. He destroyed, of course
- #Bills backfield has devolved into 3-way RBBC. Avoid
- Long as #Bears keep letting Justin Fields run, he’ll produce. Back2Back top-10 FF starts

#Bears are one of the most curious and explorative animals we capture on our #trailcams. We’ve caught them saying hello to the camera (occasionally even tilting it or knocking it down!), rearranging our bait setups, rolling and rubbing on the bait, and even mating! (1/5)
Our camera sites are set up w/ bait meant to attract the #WolverineTrackingProject’s target species, #SierraNevadaredfox, #graywolf, #Pacificmarten, & #wolverine. #Bears happen to also love this stuff, which is no surprise, given how important scent is to communication. (2/5)
Bears use a variety of methods to communicate, including leaving their own scent as well as picking up scents they like. Their scent glands are located between their shoulder blades, on the bottoms of their feet & between their toes. (3/5)

1. Since the start of 2019, the #Bears offense has failed to crack 250 total yards for a game nine times.

Matt Nagy might be one of the best snake oil salesmen in recent memory.
1a. Justin Fields was asked to run a traditional West Coast-style offense on Sunday from the pocket against one of the best defensive fronts in the NFL.

If people needed evidence that Nagy is married to his system and will never change?

There you go. #Bears
1b. The #Bears have never fired a head coach midseason before.

We've said it would take something major for that to change.

After Detroit next week they get the Raiders, Packers, Buccaneers, 49ers, and Steelers.

Mostly teams that can score, play good defense, or both. 😬

🚑 Week 2 Injury Thread 🚑

Full write up Tuesday with @TheFFBallers

My quick, concise thoughts on each injury + what we know now 👇
#49ers RB situation:

Trey Sermon: in concussion protocol

Elijah Mitchell: R shoulder injury, team believes is a "stinger type injury"; MRI tomorrow

Ja'Mycal Hasty: Ankle injury, to be evaluated more tomorrow. Severity currently unknown
#Browns Baker Mayfield

L shoulder dislocation: Returned to the game and was effective. Will be fine moving forward but is likely to require offseason labral repair surgery. If this was his R shoulder, he'd be done for the year

#BTC #bulls have a much stronger thesis than the #BTC #bears. Bulls have solid data driven analysis confirming trends in real time. Bears are using technical charts that ignore Onchain conditions with little to no acknowledgement of what’s happening on the network.

I would like to make it clear, I acknowledge the #BTC #bear case, and it’s possible, but the current #bullish trending Onchain data, fundamental strength, and improving technicals make the bear case weak and less likely to occur.
The bears calling for a bull trap have almost no data driven analysis to back up their claims. Long term holders and entities holding older coins (which is majority of supply) are not selling, but are accumulating and holding. Yes they can sell, but we aren’t seeing that.

#BTC #bears can draw all the technical fractals they want. But one trend remains: LTHs are HODLing, Miners in aggregate continue to net accumulate, LTHs remain in profit, and cohorts older than 12 months have not sold this dip.
These cohorts all need to sell massive amounts of #BTC and start a trend of selling Onchain in order for BTC to start a bear market.

As of now, the trend shows continuing accumulation and HODLing.
Yesterday #BTC miners sold 2833 BTC. This is nothing compared to the nearly 40,000 they sold in one day in late 2020. This entire year, miners reserves have been slowly trending higher. They hold 1.847 million BTC, the recent peak was 1.85 million.

In this thread I’ll summarize a project that I developed this semester with my colleagues @PicoElhombrebug and Mafalda Moncada Cordeiro entitled “Bear with Me: The impact of the natural expansion of the brown bear (Ursus arctos) into Portugal".
#bears #conservation #carnivores
In this project, we were challenged by our professor @lmrosalino to develop a conservation plan that would be hypothetically submitted for a research grant. We used a modified version of the @ruffordgrants as template for the project. We chose to focus on the brown bear. (1/8)
The brown bear is one of the most iconic carnivores in the world, existing in most of the Northern Hemisphere. In Portugal, it has been extinct since the 1800’s, but there are still 2 relic populations in the Iberian Peninsula: the Pyrenees and the Cantabrian Mountains. (2/8)
