The Beachwood Radio Sports Hour #150: Pace Pantsed

Makes statement pick that is neither bold nor courageous. Plus: Rondo vs. Wade; Hey Hey JHey!; Avi!; Sacrificial Hawks; and Schweinsteiger: Nein!



* 150.

* This draft trade really grinds Coach's gears!

* Coffman: "Ryan Pace is standing up there without any pants on!"

* Rhodes: "Ryan Pace is Clark Cub."

* San Francisco 49ers Take Chicago's Pick, Deliver Cold Twitter Shot.

* Sherman/The Ringer: Mitchell Trubisky Might Be Good, But The Bears' Draft Trade Doesn't Make Sense.

Chicago made a risky move to land a player it probably could have gotten with the third overall pick.

* Kirshner/SBNation: Did Bears Even Need To Trade Up To Land Mitchell Trubisky?

The QB came at a steep price, and it's not clear Chicago even had to pay it.

* Barnwell: The Chicago Bears And A Mitchell Trubisky Mystery.

* Why Trump may be preferable to Pence.

* Morrissey: Do Bears Have The Stomach For Using Top Pick On A QB? Doubtful.

* Rhodes: "The national media is crucifying the Bears; the local media is in love with this."

* Graziano/ESPN: The Bears Did What?

* Vrentas/SI: Draft Stunner: The Bears Do The Quarterback Shuffle.

* Jahns: Bluffed Or Not, Ryan Pace Couldn't Afford To Lose Mitch Trubisky.

* Rhodes: "The Bears are 1-0 in statements. They lead the league in statements. They're going to the Statement Bowl."

* Hoge's pinned tweet:

* More Hoge:

* Hoge two days before the draft: "I'm sticking to my original thinking that Pace thoroughly evaluated this quarterback class and decided that Mike Glennon provided similar upside at a cheaper (guaranteed) price without burning the No. 3 overall pick. If the Bears wanted to bring in a one-year stop-gap while a first round quarterback developed, they could have just re-signed Brian Hoyer, which is something they never got too serious about. Glennon is here because Pace believes he can be the Bears' answer at the position."

* Tru Haugh:

* CORRECTION: Rhodes was referring to a Morrissey column, not a Telander column (they're so hard to tell apart).

* Biggs: Bears Can't Afford To Strike Out At No. 3, So Swinging For Fences May Be Unwise.

* Even Bernstein.

48:45: Rondo vs. Wade.

52:02: Hey Hey, JHey!

56:23: Avi!

1:00:37: Sacrificial Hawks.

1:02:22: Schweinsteiger: Nein!
