Thank You, Khalil Mack

With Khalil Mack exiting Chicago after four seasons, I think it is fitting to give him a proper goodbye.

Khalil Mack,

I am very sad to see you leave Chicago, but will always appreciate your time with the Bears. The day the Bears traded for you, I basically turned into a toddler on Christmas morning. We will all be rooting for you in LA, and wish you nothing but luck. With all that said, here are some things I would like to thank you for:

Reminding me that “Return of the Mack” is an all-time song.

The stats:

  • 224 pressures (PFF)
  • 53 games
  • 52 QB hits
  • 36 sacks
  • 35 tackles for loss
  • 14 forced fumbles
  • 11 batted passes
  • 2 interceptions
  • 1 safety
  • 1 touchdown

September 9, 2018 (even if it was a loss).

Being his nightmare.

And his too.

Fighting tooth and nail, even when the offense couldn’t manage 14 points.

Being a class act in the media and never making excuses.

Setting a good example for young fans.

Your work with inner-city youth.

Not pooping fast.

Being bash bros with Akiem.

Putting the team ahead of yourself.

Battling through foot, knee, ankle, and many other undisclosed injuries while leaving it all on the field.

Being so fun to watch play football.

Putting “Monsters” back into “Monsters of the Midway”.

Giving the City of Chicago the last four years of your life.

Best of luck. Once a Bear, always a Bear.

I like spreadsheets and football. I aim to take an analytical approach to my football research while also realizing the physical nature of football and how that impacts the numbers. While my main focus is Chicago Bears, I also write about the NFL as a whole.
