Last year Bears cut Mike Davis, this year Bears think he’ll be “a beast” to stop

Less than a year ago, the Bears cut running back Mike Davis. That was a surprise, given that they had signed him to a two-year, $6 million contract in free agency and had only given him 11 carries in seven games. But the Bears decided to move on quickly, in time for his signing not to count toward their compensatory pick formula.

Now the Bears are preparing to face Davis, and they don’t sound too thrilled about having to face a guy who could still be on their roster.

Davis is the starting running back for the Panthers while Christian McCaffrey is out, and Davis is actually averaging more yards from scrimmage per game than McCaffrey was before he got hurt. Bears defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano said Davis is going to be tough to stop.

“He’s a damn beast,” Pagano said, via Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.

The Bears’ offense has struggled this season, and they may now be wondering if they’d be better off with Davis than against him.

  1. Yeah, I’m sure they’re really concerned about this third stringer. They’re 4-0 against Dalvin Cook and 5-0 against the permanent non-existing running game in Detroit.

  2. Considering they traded up to draft Trubisky not surprised they whiffed on this one too .

    —–

    At least the Bears drafted a QB, the Raiders wasted four 1st round opportunities and can barely beat the Chiefs. Meanwhile, Mack is flourishing in Chicago leading Trubisky and the Bears to another playoff berth for the second time in three years. Can’t say the same about your Raiders and definitely not your other team the LoLions!!!

  3. The Raiders traded Mack and Cole Kmet (2nd) for Josh Jacobs (1st), Damon Arnette (1st), Bryan Edwards (3rd), and a later 6th rounder the Raiders traded to the Jets who become Bless Austin.

    So Mack and Kmet –> Josh Jacobs, Damon Arnette, Bryan Edwards, and a late pick we traded became the deal.

    Chicago has won has just as many playoff games with Mack so far as the Raiders did, which is ZERO. As a Raiders fan, I was upset when Mack was traded. I hated the 2 1st rounders propaganda because we had to give up a 2nd for a 3rd so it wasn’t really 2 1sts. Either way, Mack is good but he’s not winning you playoff games.

    Mack has been good in Chicago but struggled without Akiem Hicks. Unfortunately for Chicago, Ryan Pace is awful and is blowing his SB window defense. He screwed up the QB position so badly, maybe Foles can help them. And Nagy is nothing to write home about, his running game is atrocious and he is not a good playcaller. I predicted when he was hired that he and Trubisky wouldn’t make it 5 years. Trubisky is gone, and if the Bears don’t make noise in the playoffs, Pace and Nagy will be gone too.

  4. The Bears are 24-14, division champs and a playoff loss from a bad kick, since the trade.

    The Raiders are 14-23 with nothing but a stupid new stadium in the desert and a clown coach.

    Don’t even get me started on your pathetic Lions that are about to be swept for the third consecutive season – you c0rky!

    Bears are clearly the better team and it’s not even close.

  5. Mike Davis is a product of a top offensive line, he’s not a serious threat until the defense gets blocked.

    To add to the rant above, the Bears seem to be much better off after the Mack trade regardless of who a random fan believes are “better” draft picks by the Raiders. You sure spent a lot of time revealing your opinion and can’t take anyone else’s opinion, just like a dem0crat.

  6. Anyone who thinks the Raiders won the Mack trade is clueless and this is from a Raiders fan! Bears are doing miles better than the Raiders.

  7. The Raiders traded Mack and Cole Kmet (2nd) for Josh Jacobs (1st), Damon Arnette (1st), Bryan Edwards (3rd), and a later 6th rounder the Raiders traded to the Jets who become Bless Austin.

    Cole Kmet has nothing to do with that trade m0r0n.

    The Bears sent a total of four draft choices to the Raiders and received two in return. Now that all six picks have been made, the following is a summary of the deal.

    Bears received:
    Mack
    2020 second-round pick (tight end Cole Kmet at No. 43)
    2020 seventh-round pick (offensive lineman Arlington Hambright at No. 226)

    Bears traded away:
    2019 first round (running back Josh Jacobs at No. 24 by Raiders)
    2019 sixth round (cornerback Blessuan Austin at No. 196 by Jets)
    2020 first round (cornerback Damon Arnette at No. 19 by Raiders)
    2020 third round (receiver Bryan Edwards at No. 81 by Raiders)
