  • Knowing the Bears’ luck? Yes lol

  • If Darnold was a franchise QB would the Jets be trading him?

  • Sell the team!

  • Historically inept organizations typically don't change patterns until they change ownership.

  • Bridgewater has to be the starter in Carolina so Darnold can prove himself. Two headed QB monster in Chi can work with that defense.

  • I don't believe in san darnold. I'm not a bears fan but I don't blame them for not caring about him, they have never had a strong qb. This time they wanna make it right, they got dalton for one year to buy time. Thy are still looking for their guy and that's not darnold just cuz he was available

  • we always miss out.

  • They won't go get Teddy at all. They're incompetent.

  • No

  • Can’t be mad at us bears fans, we’re a sad poverty franchise

  • It’s like they know what us Bears fans feel or have been thinking. I for one will be celebrating when Pace and Nagy are gone.

  • I can't disagree with Bart.....

  • Why is ESPN all over Darnold’s jock?

  • Idk...I think Matt Nagy is a good coach, but Pace is terrible. He’s passed on Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, Deshaun Watson(may have dodged a PR bullet, but the talent), and a few others. I think Nagy just does what he can with what he’s given-and Pace hasn’t given him anything...

  • That lets you know the Chicago Bears doesn't invest in franchise quarterbacks.

    • Worse they trade up for the biggest reach ever

  • Ryan Pace is the new Matt Millen.

  • Pace and Nagy would have just nailed the coffin shut on Darnold s career.

  • Bears first step. Fire coach and GM. Second step hire Head Coach Eric Bieniemy,. For GM I'm not sure who the best choice but it certainly has to be better than what they have (so long as said GM has never been employed by either the Texans or Jets).

  • Havent cared about da bears in years. They have no idea how to build a team. Ive been stuck watching green bay games with my gf. If we are going to suck so bad we should just sell our team to the Green Bay Packers and everybody in Chicago should be Green Bay Packer fans.

  • Bart Scott is blazed

  • poor bears. for years they've had playoff / superbowl level defense and bad QB play has always let them down. they should have made a power move to get one of the top QBs in this draft

  • The Jets made Sam a franchise QB by trading him to a NFL franchise.

  • Preach Bart .. preach!

  • Always thought Sam Darnold was the play for Chicago Bears.

  • The Bears should have traded for Sam Darnold so they can TANK for Spencer Rattler in 2022. They needed to do it so they can tank this year, rebuild, and go forward in 2023 when The Packers start Jordan Love, AKA Sam Darnold the turnover mess from Utah State.

  • Bart Scott didn’t watch any panther games. Teddy couldn’t throw deep at all.

  • Scott is smart he knows football way better than Jay.

  • As a jets fan, idk about franchise lmao upgrade over dalton but franchise? Lmao im dying

  • Are we really acting like Sam is a great qb. Bears may we well have Mitch a a 1 year deal

  • Darnold would never have worked on the Bears because Nagy cannot coach QBs, needed a Veteran QB.

  • I have a great idea for Naggy and Pace. This idea would not only benefit the Bears - but it would really be great for the United States. Naggy and Pace go to China and join the CCP. Within three years China will become a third world country.

  • bigger bust than trubiski. only reason they making a story about loser Darnold is because a NY team drafted him. If Carolina drafted Darnold number one and he stunk it up like he did? NOBODY talking about him.

  • As a Bears fan I hope not..Darnold is nowhere near a franchise QB or even a starter based of course of what we have to see..maybe he will be but thats a huge risk and the Bears have been all about giving up picks for a QB and maybe it's better they don't this time

  • You just say what you want about Teddy Bridgewater but I can tell you this he will see a great quarterbacks coach I can promise you that

  • 🙄 Come on fellas, Ted costs too much. I think Ryan and Naggy chose right for the price of Dalton.

  • Bart star thinks bears fans are dumbasses... we paid the duck out for Andy and Nick. There’s no cap space for teddy!!

  • So let me get this straight Darnold is a top five pick two years ago as a projected franchise quarterback. The Jets decide they want a new shiny toy and draft a new franchise quarterback at number two and everybody is okay with this? WOW LMAO!

  • They could use those picks to trade up 7 or 8 picks and get a Lance or Fields, many sports talking heads will give you a good argument those guys have a much better chance of becoming a Pro Bowler than Darnold. The Darnold narrative spins around Gase not him being incompliant and he still has Russel Wilson in him.

  • I hope we go 0-16 this year

  • I've never seen a bust get this much praise in the NFL. The guy has played 3 seasons and has stunk. I get adam was a trash coach but come on. Why would we want him.

  • Whats the difference between Darnold and Dalton??? Neither are tier 1 or even tier 2 QBs. They arent gonna win with either.

  • Y would we pick this dude. 🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢

  • Bridgewater should be going to the Broncos! The Bears deserve to have the chaos they gave themselves! Maybe they can get Deshaun Watson on the cheap! Can't get any worse now can it?

  • I've never understood this narrative that Teddy doesn't turn the ball over. This year he threw 15 TDs to 11INTs. That's actually a really trash ratio. His career ratio is 1.47:1, league average is 1.8:1 and no one in the top third of the league is below 2:1.

  • Sam Darnald going from one dysfunctional team to another won’t benefit anyone

  • Sam Darnold will shine with the Panthers...

  • Go check out my sports channel pls

  • I think Bart Scott failed to remember some dead cap on our bench in Nick Foles lol

  • Darnold is garbage

  • Ryan Pace has been awful for the Bears. They had a legitimate shot to build something there and he's squandered it.

  • Sam darnold is a bust. Move along

  • actually they used Robby in the X wide receiver role and had DJ moore stretching the field at times last year. It was jarring as someone who owned dj moore in fantasy last season

  • 2:15 How happy is Sam Darnold? He apparently threw a going-away party to celebrate being traded for what amounts to peanuts. Not a Panthers or Jests fan, not a fan of Darnold but I *DO* think he was screwed by the Jests

  • 6:35 I like his plan to have Bridgewater start and Dalton backup. Trade Foles to Philly.

  • Jay Williams is so right they just doing this to keep their job the gm and coach

  • I remember the Bears started Rick Mirer one time. They do give quarterbacks a second chance. Just draft Kyle Trask or Mac Jones at the 20th overall pick. Especially, Kyle Trask is a steal.

    • I hope they don't draft Jones because he looks and sounds like nick foles but younger.

  • i agree, the bears need to go for teddy Bridgewater, but have some weapons for him!

    • Bridgewater is a game manager and backup. That would be another wasted spot.

  • It’s obvious that Nagy didn’t want him, since Pace does whatever Nagy wants, example, sign Nick Foles, dump Trubinsky he didn’t want to coach, sign Andy Dalton to be the starter. Nagy is now calling the plays this season, so, he can do his poor man’s KC offense. Pace isn’t going to trade for Teddy, based on the obvious elephant in the room, in my opinion.

    • That elephant makes the commute from Chicago to Denver every day.

  • Darnald trash anyways

  • Trubisky is overhated bc the expectations that were set for him & Naggy not wanting to coach him (he stopped playing to Mitch’s strengths... which is his job!) Mitch is top 10 in most stats & made the playoffs twice in his 1st 3 years. For most QBs, esp in a disfunctional franchise, & behind a bad o-line (among other roster holes), that would otherwise be considered successful.

    • ​@Rutherford Hayes when there was expectations in 2019 he seamed to fold.

    • There were no expectations set for Trubisky, among reasonable observers. He overperformed. Just another episode in the Bears' incompetence.

  • Darnold peaked in college with his 22 interceptions and 23 fumbles and now has a 40.1 QB rating. They are not missing out on Darnold.

  • This was all over espn I thought mahomes got traded

  • I mean he doesn’t have to be a “franchise QB” whatever that means. but he just needs to be a good football player.

  • I gave a thumbs up 55 seconds into this video. As a Bear fan that’s exactly how I feel right now. 😤😤😤😤

  • Definitely did when they decided not to pick DeSean...

    • No kidding! I felt like 80% of the fanbase wanted him to be the pick. Wouldn’t even given it a second thought about them trading up to 2 either.

  • Trade Teddy to Chicago. Perfect for them if their defense is still up to par

    • @chicken mcthuggets at least dalton has thrown more than 15 tds in a year.

    • @Mo Fuggar teddy is basically andy dalton but likeable

    • What makes Bridgewater perfect for Chicago?

  • No because they ate going to sign Russell Wilson next year

  • Maybe🤷🏽‍♂️But bears could trade up with ATL, DET, or CAR and get Fields/Lance since SF is infatuated with Mac Jones. Also bears media would’ve hated the amount of picks Car gave up lol

    • @kamui Cage I said bears media. Bears media is barely happy with anything. They definitely wouldn’t have liked giving up a 2nd plus anything

    • Three picks when two of them are day 3 picks that would have been a great trade. They gave up 4 picks to trade up one spot and draft Trubisky

  • Darnold haters y’all been watching film? Watch this...he boutta prove y’all wrong

    • Na we don’t our job is to wake up sip a coffee then hop on social media to hate on a QB that loose 95% of his games all day long

  • Geez lol it's just Sam Darnold he isn't much of an upgrade over Andy Dalton lol seriously. I like him but come on now

  • Darnold is an above average QB

  • Sell the team!

  • We’re the bears.... we always miss out on franchise QB’s

    • @Rob Zeleki I’ll have to remember to come back to this

    • this was a good move by bears. Darnold is a nobody and dalton is there just to buy time before they go after someone else

  • Bears been missing out on franchise QBs since 1920.

  • I hope dalton proves everyone wrong, & happy bears ain’t get my QB1 Russell Wilson lol

  • Sam Darnold and some picks are heading for Houston for Deshaun Watson.

    • The blockbuster is Rodgers to SF. Watson will just sit for a year.

    • You are out of your mind

    • You don’t know do you?

    • Nobody wants him

  • Mitchell Trubisky has had a better career than Darnold. If they traded for Darnold fans would have said they might as well have kept Trubisky.

    • @Agent Steezy It’s kind’ve deceiving to mention their age bc that’s indicative of at what age they entered the draft. Mitch only has 1 more year in the league, better stats, & 2 more playoff appearances. I’m not saying that Sam won’t be better with the Panthers, but right now he’s not & 1 year doesn’t change that.

    • Trubisky has been in the league longer than Darnold, is 3 years older, and been in a better situation and still didn’t accomplish much....not saying the Bears are a great situation but surely better than the Jets

  • Bears pay attention Kellon Mond don't be stupid

  • it starts with TED PHILLIPS

  • The Panthers missed out on a Franchise QB in TREVOR LAWRENCE

    • I don't care what anyone says no team plays to lose

  • Andy Dalton made the playoffs more times than Sam Darnold, which makes him better than Sam Darnold. As a matter of fact, because Sam Darnold never made the playoffs, he is a BUST.

    • @Kgosi Nong Even Trubisky is better than Darnold.

    • You really must be trolling right now

    • @Mr Anonymous1113 Dalton at least got his teams in the playoffs. Darnold missed the playoffs every season, which makes Dalton better than Darnold.

    • Andy Dalton has the same amount of playoff wins as Sam Darnold so what's your point?

    • Fsee🤣

  • The McCaskey's and Ted Phillips Need to go!!

  • 40th comment

  • Bears always missing

  • I never seen so much talk about a BUST in my life!

    • @Yrn Sebastian He ain’t better at QB then Baker Mayfield, Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson the running back playing quarterback even in Carolina.

    • Watch next season

  • Can the media shut up already about franchise QBs? It's a marketing ploy similar to companies claiming that their product is, "all natural." How about letting the players establish themselves first. Talk about their potential to be one, don't just automatically brand them as one.

  • They should just draft whatever QB is on the board in the first round when they pick. Whoever they get will be an improvement over what they currently have. ha ha

  • People talking like this the 90`s and every team got a game QB lol

  • As much as I'm a Jets fan and wish the Jets could have kept Darnold if they could not get Deshaun, all these outlets talking like Darnold is greatest thing since sliced bread when he never even played a full season

    • @Jiordone ummm you just described any QB position with a bad offensive line.However, that's no excuse cause Deshaun Watson and Phillip Rivers had bad offensive lines for a good part of their careers and still were Pro Bowlers

    • hard to stay healthy when you're under constant pressure almost every time you drop back to pass.

    • Its the potential. The Jets are a very bad team. In Carolina he at least has talent around him

  • The Bears could have got Watson. And there are others too. Bears Fans are so angry. Chicago needs to sack their GM.

    • @J Th I never thought the bears missed on Mahomes I just think he got put into the right situation with the cheifs where he already had a playoff team so he could sit for a year and work the kinks out in his game. The bears couldn't do that because they had mike glennon and a team coming off a 3-13 year. Watson would of been the best because he could play immediately while trubisky and mahomes were project qbs in the draft.

    • @Zachary Luedke if they did draft him and he did the same crime(if he’s still gullty), the bears would still be cursed. They could of taken Mahomes

    • @J Th hes talking about back in 2017 they should of drafted him.

    • Nobody wants Watson

    • Agreed. For what Ryan Pace has given Matt Nagy, he's done well. Pace is the problem. Can analyze defensive talent well, but can't draft an offensive player for his life. Nagy is not great, but he isn't as bad as people say he is. Problem is the Bears can't find a GM that can maintain a good defense AND find a franchise QB.

  • Darnold sucks

  • I already know they're going to be talking about this non stop

  • Franchise QB?! Come on now let’s be real

    • @kamui Cage Sam “only 23” Darnold

    • Still better than Andy Dalton

    • Hes 23 and will be playing with the most talent around him in his life

  • Bears deserve to have a qb for picking matt trubisky over machomes and watson

    • Watson can't keep up with Holmes' intellect, he blunders through every investigation.

    • Mahomes for sure he’s actually won a super bowl, but Watsons only got 2 playoff wins to Trubiskys 0. Watson doesn’t have anything near the weapons he had in Houston, if he was drafted by Chicago.

    • *Mitch

    • Fire napalm the team and started all the way over again for the singing in the rain today and tomorrow night

  • Ain’t nothing “franchise” about Scrub Darnold

    • @senoir butta Nagy wants to be trash and get a QB in 2022.

    • true but i do think he wouldve at least been better than andy, at least from a fit standpoint of what nagy wants to do

    • He’s better than Andy Dalton trash self.

  • The bears and franchises qbs are like Kanye and Kim

  • go bears

  • Franchise QB? Lol

  • I swear white QBs have a built in excuse if they lose.. Players like Lamar who actually win have to be TB12 n year 3 but Darnold,Wentz,Stafford ect get passes smh

    • Ma’am shut up lol. Cam is coddled like no other QB I’ve ever seen😂😂😂😂Lamar has never been benched once but you’re bottom a$$ is running defense.

    • Same with black coaches. Peyton Manning was Jamies Winston before Jim Caldwell got a hold of him. Now Jim Caldwell can’t get a job.

    • Stafford had Megatron and high draft picks and NEVER won a playoff game n 13 seasons.. But Lamar had pressure being 22 and in year 3

    • Don’t forget Mitch the fans in bears fanbase who support Mitch are insane

  • How about Instead trading or signing these two bums how about we trade up and draft a qb like other teams do if we can’t do that just start foles he’s no different then dalton or darnold

    • @Chicago 19 yeah I didn't like the Trubisky pick when I saw it. Thought they should've gone with Watson at the time, but we all know who the correct pick is.

    • @New York Bandwagon my bad I forgot we played them at end of season I meant the game on Sunday night where we got blown out and yes I wanted lose in playoffs that was only pace and Nagy hope of getting fired and I wanted Mitch gone

    • @Chicago 19 second Packers game was week 17... so you wanted your team to lose in the playoff game?

    • @New York Bandwagon if you want believe me ask me for my Twitter and I’ll show you my tweets of me saying I want tank I said that ever since we lost second packers game

    • @Chicago 19 yeah I don't believe you lol. Every Bears fan I've spoken to was rooting for their team to win. I'd rather have a playoff berth than having a draft pick like 4 slots up, especially me, a Bills fan😂. You're now paying the price for your front office thinking that this team was competitive. On defense and special teams, they certainly were. But offensively, let's not talk about it. And you realize that no QB other than Kyle Trask or Ian Book will be available at 20 right? You want to take THEM to be your franchise QB? I don't even know what you do at this point. I would've gave Mitc... eh nvm. You guys are certainly in a tough spot. If teams didn't overvalue Mac Jones so much, he certainly could fall to you guys.
