In what will come as a shock to no one, Matt Nagy has elected to rest his starters in the Bears' third preseason game against the Colts. Aside from quarterback Mitch Trubisky and four members of the offensive line playing a grand total of three snaps — which included zero throws — in the Bears' preseason opener, Nagy has rested his starters for the entirety of preseason. It's expected to be more of the same in next week's preseason finale against the Titans. Instead, Nagy will get four quarters to evaluate the Bears' reserves, including some that are in need of a bounce-back game after last week's lackluster performance. Earlier this week, Nagy said that there were three positional battles he

The Chicago Bears are coming off of a 2018 campaign in which they won 12 games and captured the NFC North division title before losing to the Philadelphia Eagles in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs. The Bears are known for their defense, but their offense is also improving, and as a result, many feel that Chicago is a Super Bowl contender heading into 2019. Of course, with expectations comes pressure, and Bears fans are tired of losing. So, here are the three Bears players under the most pressure going into this season. 3. Leonard Floyd It's put up or shut up time for Leonard Floyd. The ninth overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft, Floyd has been a massive disappointment thus far, as injuries
I got this idea from a series of articles at The Draft Network, where they are giving their superlative picks in seven different categories for all 32 teams. I thought it would be a fun exercise to run through myself, so fun in fact that I sent the questions out to our team as well. And since I didn't want us to have all the fun, I even shot out the question on Twitter to get your takes. Yesterday we talked about the Breakout Guy for the 2019 Chicago Bears, and today we're going to discuss who will be the Comeback Kid.

The Bears went 69-17-2 in those seasons, finishing first in the Western Division five times, second twice and third once.
Chicago Bears, we are looking at you. U.S. soccer star Carli Lloyd tells SI.com that she "got some inquiries" after banging a 55-yard field goal through skinny uprights after a Ravens-Eagles joint practice earlier this week. "There’s been some interesting chatter about it," Lloyd said, via NJ.com. "I think anything is possible. It’s been really [more]
There are many sites out there predicting teams outcomes based upon opponents strengths and weaknesses on the field. I'm going to do something a bit different (surprise surprise) by predicting the season based upon other teams mascot(s) versus our beloved Bears. Spoiler alert, it will be hard to find a mascot who can survive against a clan (technically a group of bears is called a sleuth) of these: Keep the above image in mind as we compare our Bears to our opponents. We start off with the masculine SFA Lumberjacks: They may look spiffy in their flannel shirts and carry axes, but they will be no match for the Bears. BEARS WIN Next we host the UTSA Roadrunners: The roadrunners will quickly figure
Dent laid waste to Holloway, Hall of Fame guard John Hannah and the rest of the Patriots the rest of the game. On the Patriots' second possession, Dent and Wilber Marshall sacked Tony Eason for a 10-yard loss. After the Bears tied the score 3-3 on their next possession, Dent and Steve McMichael sacked Eason again, forcing a fumble Dan Hampton recovered at the Patriots 13-yard line.
