Chicago Bears Sackwatch 2018: Week 2 vs th | Forum

e Seattle Seahawks The pass protection of the Chicago Bears has been solid this season. The numbers don’t necessarily reflect that , but if you step back and dissect the sacks allowed you’d see where the problems are coming from. Last week the Bears allowed four sacks and an argument could be made that the pass pro that was schemed up didn’t allow a single one of them. My Sackwatch was a bit more nit-picky, so I gave 1.5 of the sacks to the offensive linemen. This week they allowed 2 sacks, and I’ll break those down after I thank WCG member, WhiskeyRanger, for my new Sackwatch logos! Here’s where we stand so far...Sackwatch after 2 games2010 Sacks - 5 (Martz)2011 Sacks - 11 (Martz)2012 Sacks - 9 (Tice)2013 Sacks - 1 (Trestman)2014 Sacks - 3 (Trestman)2015 Sacks - 4 (Gase)2016 Sacks - 8 (Loggains)2017 Sacks - 5 (Loggains)2018 Sacks - 6 (Nagy)Now let’s get into these two sacks. Sack 5 - Third Quarter 12:23 - Mychal KendricksThe newly signed Kendricks got home on a beautifully designed and timed blitz. He shot through the B-Gap between right guard Kyle Long and right tackle Bobby Massie. Seattle occupied Long and Massie with a couple of down linemen, leaving Kendricks a free rushing lane from the second level. When the Seattle defensive tackle slants inside (to the A-Gap) he entices Long to take him. Massie had the defensive end taking an outside rush, so he had to take him. If Kendricks shows blitz a split second sooner Roquan Smith Jersey , then maybe Long is able to hold his ground and pick him up, but with Seattle also showing a blitzer in center Cody Whitehairs’ face, the Bears had to play it the way they did. Which leads me to Trubisky. A quarterback is responsible for the free rusher, and the Seahawks actually had two coming from his right. Trubisky cocks his arm to throw to Tarik Cohen (the correct read), but decides to play it safe and take the sack. Throwing a dart to Cohen would have likely been tipped by one of the two blitzers, and lobbing the ball to Cohen would have been too risky with a Seahawk defender dropping behind Cohen.Sometimes a defense just makes a good play and sometimes sacks just happen.

After watching the replay Authentic Allen Robinson Jersey , he sure looks offsides to me. There isn’t a right tackle in the league that would have been able to cleanly make the block with the head-start Clark had. I agree with Adam. Individual Sackwatch after week 2:Mitchell Trubisky - 2.5Sacks Happen - 2Dion Sims - .5Erik Kush - .5Charles Leno - .5 For the second consecutive week, the Chicago Bears sit alone atop the NFC North. The national analysts are starting to come around on the ferociousness of Chicago’s defense, and now after the offense broke out last week, could we finally see some praise getting heaped on the team?Let’s take our weekly tour around some NFL Power Rankings to see where the Bears stand. First up is the Mothership, SB Nation, and they have the Bears just outside the top ten at 11, up three spots from last week. After praising the Green Bay Packers , who are ranked tenth, SB Nation had this to say about Chicago. “The Bears also looked great last week with not only the defense impressing, but Mitchell Trubisky throwing SIX touchdown passes (and zero interceptions) in the win over the Buccaneers.”You just know something is serious when it’s in all-caps. Check out SB Nations’s Mile High Report. I wonder if their misspelling of Trubisky is just some of their jilted-lover-syndrome still seeping out.ESPN has it like this while spotlighting one rookie from each team.Here’s how SI’s MMQB has has the Bears flying up their power rankings, up 9 spots to number 8. The Sporting News has it like this. Yahoo Sports has them taking a big jump too. I think winning the AFC East is a possibility for the Bears this year. Check out how the USA Today has it. The Washington Post is a believer too. What do you guys think about the Power Rankers this week?


Bitcoin economics has not changed

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BUY A WHOLE BTC BITCOIN! Each bitcoin is equal to 100 million Satoshis, making a Satoshi the smallest unit of bitcoin currently recorded on the blockchain. Think of the Satoshi as the “cents” part of bitcoin. But unlike a penny that represents 0.01 USD, Satoshi represents roughly 0.00000001 BTC — or bitcoin to its eighth decimal.

Bitcoin forecast to 2029

Time model tends to forecast lower bound to prices. Stock-to-Flow model is a better model, click chart above to see details. It incorporates the halvings and better represents the monetary policy of Bitcoin. Hype cycles are expected around each halving as investors anticipate the price appreciation. Bitcoin has a fixed supply (maximum 21 million Bitcoins), therefore it cannot be devalued by central bank money printing (so called Quantitative Easing, QE). Bitcoin is also decentralised, meaning no single authority can control it. It has existed on the Internet for 10 years from 2009. It will be the money of the machines and Internet. Also described as digital gold due to its scarcity and high value.

This is a good short article that explains, why Bitcoin? Why Bitcoin?

Run your own Full Node and help the Bitcoin (BTC) network. Be Your Own Bank! There are currently (May 2018) about 138,000 full nodes globally. About 10,000 of these are listening for outside connections on the P2P network.

As people suddenly realise they don’t own their data on Facebook, how will they react when they realise they don't own the money in their bank accounts either?

The good news is government can't take your Bitcoin in your own full node. Not by legalised theft (inflation), nor by government bail ins. Realise that fiat money, $, €, ¥, £, yuan, Venezuelan Bolívar, Argentine Peso, Zimbabwean Dollar, etc. is crashing! In the last 100 years, all fiat currencies have lost 97-99% of their purchasing power, reducing your standard of living.

Physical Gold


Protect yourself and family from central bank currency debasement and inflation in asset prices, housing, food. There are rising levels of financial, economic and geopolitical risk in the world. In the last 100 years, all currencies have lost 97-99% of their purchasing power. Some believe that the final move to zero will take place in the next few years.

Currency debasement through money printing is the destruction of fiat money purchasing power - $, €, ¥, £, yuan, Venezuelan Bolívar, Argentine Peso, Zimbabwean Dollar...

True inflation and cost of living is currently 8% higher than the government reports. Real wages are falling rapidly and most people are taking out more and more debt to make ends meet. Only the wealthy minority and banks benefit from the current system.

Protect yourself. Buy physical, allocated gold, silver, platinum online and store it in safe vaults outside your jurisdiction (Switzerland, UK, USA, Canada and Singapore) or, at home. Physical gold has limited supply. Buy before the panic!

Look what happened in Cyprus (2013), Greece (2015) and Spain (Catalonia 2017). The lesson is that the money in your bank account is not really yours. It can be taken or frozen by the government just when you need it. Maybe it is not a good idea to keep too much money in the bank, especially when the next financial crisis comes!
