Eric Dickerson Explains Why ’85 Bears Will Never Go Away (Exclusive Part 3/3)

You’ve heard the news by now- the Chicago Bears have signed the purchase agreement for the Arlington International Racecourse property in suburban Arlington Heights, Illinois. While it’s not set in stone yet that the Bears will move out of Soldier Field, it is looking very likely right now.

Justin Fields Should Have Been Chicago Bears QB1 on Day 1

As much as Chicago Bears Head Coach Matt Nagy was determined to hold his team back this season, he hand was finally forced with an injury to QB1 Andy Dalton in the 20-17 win over the Bengals last week. While Dalton seemed to be finding his feet well and was having a decent game, it wasn’t until Josh Fields came on that Bears fans at Soldier Field suddenly woke up and finally got excited.

The first round pick out of Ohio State ended the game with a 46.2% completion rate, and despite showing some flashes of brilliance, was sacked twice to go along with a fumble, which he recovered. [Read more…]

Examples number 9,234,678 and 9,234,679 on why we shouldn’t look to professional athletes for guidance on serious social issues- Jay Cutler and Brett Favre.

New Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields Excites Northwestern Coach Pat Fitzgerald

The Chicago Bears did exactly what they had to this NFL Draft weekend- they went out and got a real quarterback. Andy Dalton and Nick Foles simply won’t cut it.

The draft board fall of Justin Fields is just like the purpose/advantage of cryptocurrency- there is no discernible explanation or reason. The reasons given for why Fields slid down the draft don’t come close to making any sense, but when he did, the Bears made their move to get him.
