I see a trade to the Eagles in his future. Chip Kelly, this is your running QB!

Don't count out Dallas. Jerry Jones loves the guy, and wanted to take him last year instead of Zack Martin. He probably would have, too, if the entire rest of the organization (including his own sons) hadn't threatened to mutiny. Tony Romo is 35, and if Jones can get Johnny Football away from Cleveland for even a half-decent price...

If the Bears don't have that beat, they've gotta be pretty close. In the time I've been alive, I've seen maybe a couple good seasons out of Jim McMahon, a couple good seasons out of Erik Kramer in the mid-90's, and a couple seasons of slightly above-average play from Jay Cutler. Aside from that, it's been a continuous revolving door of garbage, going back decades and decades all the way to the 1940's.

For whatever reason, a handful of teams get exceptionally lucky with QBs, and land back-to-back hall of famers. Then you've got teams like the Bears and Browns who spend probably 10+ first round picks on QBs over multiple decades and miss on ALL OF THEM. This, through multiple front offices, coaching staffs, and supporting casts. I don't get it.

What a train wreck. Out of that whole list, there's only about four who weren't complete garbage (McMahon, Harbaugh, Kramer, Cutler). Of those, McMahon and Kramer had about 2 healthy seasons each, and Harbaugh had maybe 4 (though he was just "okay"). I guess that makes Jay Cutler the best Bears QB at least since the Super Bowl era. :lol:

Dave Krieg had much better career stats than any non-current QBs on that list, but the vast majority of Krieg's success came after his one season with the Bears.

And Greg Landry had some good years with the Lions before going to the Bears.

I vaguely remember Dave Krieg, but I think it was more towards the end of his career, and only a very short stint. Greg Landry was before my time (of watching football at least).

It should be sobering for the Bears organization to look at that list. I still don't get how some organizations are able to pull back-to-back HOF'ers out of thin air, while others go 0-for-35 after multiple top-10 picks and blockbuster free agent trades. Even if you assume it's just a roll of the dice, those are almost impossibly bad numbers.

Rarely have I seen someone work so incredibly hard at effing up their own life.

If you ever watched him play in college, he seemed like a bundle of nerves most of the time. Maybe that sort of high-intensity personality lends itself to drug and alcohol abuse, but all I can think of is "Stupid, braindead, spoiled s***head" - and that's coming from a fellow Aggie.

Stay tuned for the new reality series about a 3-way bromance starring him, Charlie Sheen, and Beeber.

Mike Tanier wants you to feel sorry for this millionaire ruining his life. Has he drunk or snorted up the whole $4.3 million that he got from the Browns yet?

We don't know how many millions he got from Nike before they finally decided to cut their losses.

It looks like the media has their new Tim Tebow. Just like Tebow, this guy doesn't even play in the NFL anymore, yet interviews with his high school coach, 2nd cousin, and a guy who lived down the block are grabbing top headlines in national news outlets.

God I hate the media.

My girlfriend always looked forward to every opportunity that Manziel got to play for the Browns. One time she watched the Bengals @ Browns game (through NFL gamepass) on her own and became super worried whenever he played since.

She loved the Snickers commercial and kept wondering how much the company lost on that endorsement deal. Any information on the financial effects or negative branding experienced? Was there a clause in the contract?

Sorry for bumping a Johnny Football thread...
