Bears win 20 – 17 over Cincinnati as Justin Fields subs for injured Andy Dalton.
Bears fans who have been clamoring for Fields to see significant playing time got their wish on Sunday when 2021 starter Dalton came up hobbling as he approached the sideline early in the second quarter. Fields then entered for three plays that failed to yield a first down. Dalton would return for one more series before sitting o … (read more…)
The Chicago Bears had possession of the football eleven more minutes than the Los Angeles Rams on their Sunday night opener. That fact just indicated how inefficient Chicago was in their 34-14 loss at SoFI Stadium for the 2021 NFL season’s first contest. Two miscues in the defensive secondary proved costly.
The Bears had an interception, a turnover on downs, then a fumble and a punt before finally putting the ball in … (read more…)
Normally pre-season NFL games do not spark much interest beyond die hard fans, bettors, and player personnel directors.
Both of the Chicago Bears 2021 exhibition games have had hype normally reserved for regular season contests. The first game was the professional debut of first round draft pick Justin Fields. Saturday’s second game was the return to Soldier Field of Mitch Trubisky, the second overall pick in the 2017 … (read more…)
Expectations were naturally elevated, since this was going to be the debut of top pick Justin Fields, a player on whom many fans are heaping hopes of getting this team back into the upper echelon of the NFL elite.
That is an awful lot of hype and setting the bar at a very elevated level. Presumptive starter Andy Dalton played the first two series, completing two passes for 18 yards. Fields took over in the second quar … (read more…)
The Bears chose to pull up stakes at Olivet Nazarene College in Bourbonnais after the 2019 season. They had no idea that a pandemic would get between their efforts to set up shop at Halas Hall. The players, staff, and media certainly enjoy the change of venue. Perhaps the fans from the southern part of Chicagoland weren’t in favor of the new location. But the Bears have a first class setup in Lake Forest. There was no reason not to take advantage of everything the faci … (read more…)
The 2021 Chicago Bears are nothing but optimistic for the coming season as the Veterans’ Minicamp wraps up. After an 8-8 season followed by a playoff loss a lot of questions surround the Bears. How is Justin Fields progressing? How will Allen Robinson fare after yet another quarterback change? How does Jimmy Graham feel about returning after heading straight to the locker room at the end of last season?
Although Andy … (read more…)
After 2020 voluntary workouts proved to be a unique experience during a pandemic, the 2021 voluntary workouts are back to, for a lack of a better word, normal. The coaches and training staff are having discussions in person rather than over Zoom, and the players are returning to the field to practice as a team.
“Last year, as you all know, we’re sitting just like we’re doing right now, and we’re teaching footbal … (read more…)
The Bears sparked a lot of buzz in April when they traded up to take quarterback Justin Fields in the draft. The team hasn’t had a first first-round pick since 2018 as a result of the Khalil Mack trade. Fields appears to be adjusting well in to being Chicago.
“I would say it’s probably the same,” said Fields comparing his college strategy to the pros. “I think the only different thing about our offense is that at Ohio State, we did signals from the sidelines. So … (read more…)
Saints 21 – Bears 9
It takes a nearly flawless game to overcome a superior opponent. Even though Chicago didn’t turn over the ball once, and intercepted Drew Brees, it was costly penalties and the ejection of wide receiver Anthony Miller that proved too much for the Bears.
The game literally slipped through their hands, when Javon Wims was unable to haul … (read more…)
We are joined by guest Patrick Sheldon, a site expert for FanSided’s DaWindyCity.com, who will argue the case against Nagy and Trubisky.
The case AGAINST Nagy:
A tiger rarely changes its stripes, and Matt Nagy has shown you who he is as a play-caller for three years. As news emerged he was taking a more active role in those duties recently, you could see s … (read more…)
