If PFF sees crappy run blocking on tape then the Bears coaches will probably see it as well.

What would PFFs agenda against Brandon Myers be?

pff is basically a group of guys like u and me. They present their rankings and opinions as gospel and claim its objectivity. Its far from it

But I can assess crappy run blocking if I have coaches tape.

I would be interested in the metric they use for the grades, but maybe Myers is not a great run blocker?

Yes, this is the major problem with them I think. Also, they don't use the all-22 coaches film for deadline reasons, but instead just grade everything based on the TV broadcast. I think certain stats they create are useful when they are less subjective (like drop rate, for example), but I don't take their player grades seriously and I doubt NFL scouts do either. I think if NFL scouts (and Phil) look at PFF it's for some of the stats.

Now that Knox is gone I'm really hoping the Chargers don't want to pay Eddie Royal all that money. He'd be a really nice pickup.

One strategy that I have been thinking about is to make a push for a more expensive free agent and not using free agency to fill out depth positions but instead trading down in the draft.

I had this in my last mock with a 2nd round trade down to get depth picks in the 4th or 5th round.

Free Agency

OG Louis Vasquez 5 years 32.5 million/15 guaranteed

QB Whoever

Draft

1[20] OT D.J Fluker [Alabama]

*Trade Down and get a 4th and 6th.

2[60] LB Gerald Hodges [Penn State]

4. TE Jordan Reed [Florida]

4. C Brian Schwenke [Cal]

5. CB Sheldon Price [UCLA]

6. WR Lanear Sampson [Baylor]

6. TE Michael Williams [Alabama]

We fill all our depth picks with cheap draft picks and we focus our free agent budget on a single upgrade on the OL.

I'm not sure Vasquez will get that much.

There have new reports that he is looking for 6 million a year I added a little because there will be bidding.

If the elite OGs are getting 8-9 I think Vasquez is a 6 million guy, he has been very good for the Chargers.

USA Today's Mike Garafolo "wouldn't put much into" rumors that free agent LT Branden Albert's back is a potential hang-up, and reports he passed a "full physical" last week.


If Albert is fully healthy he should be our top target in FA.

If true I would want him here.

Rappaport made it seem like the Chiefs were working to re-sign him and the physical was the first part.

Im sure it was mandatory to them even wanting to work out a deal w/ him. But the clock is ticking.

I am wondering what your guys honest opinions are about a guy like Albert.

If Albert is going to make 8-9 million a season can the Bears afford him?

As I said before, I don't worry about money being a factor b/c we have Cliff Stein, and Cliff Stein won't ever sign us a bad deal.
