Chicago Bears vs Indianapolis Colts Game Preview, Betting Info

The Nick Foles era has begun in Chicago. Mitch Trubisky had his chances, but he just isn’t that guy, and it looks like he never will be. Last week in Atlanta, Foles came on in relief of Trubisky and he accomplished three things.

He rallied the Bears from a deep deficit late, and led the visitors to victory. He also made sure the Atlanta Falcons stayed on brand, further strengthening their reputation as a team where no lead is EVER safe!

Chicago Bears at Atlanta Falcons Game Keys, Betting Preview, Prediction

While it’s still a very unimpressive 2-0 for the Chicago Bears, it is still 2-0 and that’s much better than 1-1 or 0-2. Chicago had been anything but awe-inspiring, on both sides of the ball, in 2020 but at least they’re not a punchline like their opponent this Sunday.

The Atlanta Falcons, forever synonymous with blowing a 28-3 lead to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 51, let a 20-0 advantage go to waste as they lost 40-39 to the Dallas Cowboys last weekend. NFL neutrals and fans of the Falcons’ rivals couldn’t stop trolling them over that.

Chicago Bears vs NY Giants Preview: Storylines, Odds, Injury Report

For the Chicago Bears, a proverbial step up in weight class comes in week two as they host the New York Giants. Chicago was extremely lucky in week one as the Detroit Lions let the game slip right through their finger tips, in true LOLions fashion, in the closing minutes.

For the Giants, they’ll have a much easier opponent this week, after getting pounded by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the season opener. Legendary former Steelers coach and now current CBS on NFL pundit Bill Cowher picked his former team to win it all this year.

Brian Urlacher Moves Next Door to Mike Ditka in MAGA Town

At no point in our history was “stick to sports” an actual reality, but these days very few even try to pretend that this theoretical concept legitimately exists.

Sure, you have some holdouts, but quite often they’re guilty of expressing their own political beliefs at the same time that they are being involved with sport. “Stick to sports” actually means “stick to sports when you express political beliefs I disagree with, but if you’re espousing political beliefs I do agree with, then that’s fine, be an activist.”

Why the NFL Must be Extremely Pragmatic Ahead of 2020 Season

The coronavirus pandemic has destroyed all essence of a potentially normal year. That statement could not be more true for the sporting world, which took a major hit with the announcements that all leagues would be suspended back in early-to-mid March of 2020.

Lovie Smith: “systemic racism exists in our world”

Illinois Football coach Lovie Smith and Chicago Bears legend Brian Urlacher are good friends, dating back to their days together with the Monsters of the Midway. A few days ago, Urlacher gave his take on the current state of affairs in this nation.

It was lacking to say the least, and it conveyed just how much #54 doesn’t get it. He needs to listen to his friend Lovie Smith, who appeared on NBC Sports Network’s Lunch Talk Live with Mike Tirico today, where discusssed racial injustice in America.

See this is Why Star Athletes Don’t Usually Talk Politics

If you’ve ever wondered why college and pro sports teams employ media handlers to train their athletes on public speaking, well Wednesday gave you the answer; repeatedly. Below you’ll find four examples of why publicists and media relations departments want all their players to be like Tom Brady, Russell Wilson or Derek Jeter- talk, without every saying anything.

That said, we’re ecstatic that “stick to sports” is pretty much dead now. Thank you Colin Kaepernick for being the primary driving force is getting this to happen. While we’ll focus here on the athletes expressing sociopolitical views that we disagree with, we absolutely support their right to express those views. Better to lose some of your audience but retain all of your soul, no matter what side you’re on.

Have Energy for Jay Cutler-Kristin Cavallari Divorce Discourse? Your Life’s Not Bad!

jay-cutler-kristin-cavallari-chicago-bears-season-preview

It was just two tweeks ago today that Kristin Cavallari, “reality star,” announced that she and her husband, former NFL quarterback Jay Cutler, are getting divorced. This past week, Cavallari spoke out publicly, calling Cutler “lazy” and “unmotivated.”

It was a very calculated move, as K-Cav seized upon and exploited the public perception of Cutler that of a man who is rather emotionally distant and insouciant. Of course, this depiction of him is fairly consistent with the reputation that Cutler earned during his professional playing career, especially so while he was with the Chicago Bears.

Well, if these two crazy young anti-vaxxer kids can’t make it together in this world, then who can! Yes, reality “star” Kristin Cavallari and former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, are getting divorced after a decade of marriage.

“With great sadness, after 10 years together we have come to a loving conclusion to get a divorce,” K-Cav posted on her official Instagram page. If you need to see the original social media post, and statement (although I can’t imagine why anyone would), it’s here for you below:

Notre Dame TE Cole Kmet to Chicago Bears: Why this Does/Doesn’t Make Sense

In terms of pure value, the Chicago Bears selecting Notre Dame tight Cole Kmet with the 43rd overall pick in the NFL Draft tonight was a really solid selection. The Lake Barrington, IL native is a blue chip prospect, arguably the best tight end in the draft, having absolutely crushed it at the scouting combine in Indianapolis.

This now means that every opening day starter at tight end for Notre Dame, going all the way back to Anthony Fasano in 2005, has been draft. It also means that 11 Fighting Irish tight ends have been drafted in the first two rounds all time. However, if you look at this pick from a needs based standpoint…it’s highly questionable to say the least.
