– Baker Mayfield sent to the Panthers!
A dome at Soldier Field or a new stadium in the suburbs of Chicago, the Bears will have to choose
The soap opera around the future stadium of the Bears continues. While the franchise is in negotiations to obtain land in Arlington Heights, in the suburbs of Chicago, another solution could be considered. According to the Sports Business Journal, the city of Chicago is considering the possibility of installing a dome over Soldier Field, the current home of the Bears, as well as carrying out several improvements to the stadium in order to make it more attractive. . According to Crain’s Chicago Business, building a dome could cost between $400 million and $1.5 billion.
It remains to be seen whether the Bears will move to the suburbs of Chicago in the future or whether they will manage to find common ground, in particular financial, with the municipality.
Ben McAddo didn’t think highly of Baker Mayfield in the draft
The Panthers offensive coordinator no longer had a coaching job in 2018 when Baker Mayfield was drafted, but he still studied the quarterback class that year. And the least we can say is that he had expressed some reservations about his new player. He told the New York Post that while he liked Mayfield personally, he thought he had some major downsides, including his height, athleticism, hand size and the way he played in Oklahoma. He had thus ranked 6th quarterback of the vintage behind Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson, Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen and Mason Rudolph.
“I didn’t see a lot of pro-style football in his college video,” McAdoo said. “And if you’re short, you have to be able to compensate somehow, and personality doesn’t. I didn’t think he was a great athlete. This guy is kind of like a pocket quarterback who’s small and with small hands, that’s what worries me. »
