The Head is the Hardest Hit: Briggs, Sayers and the Brain

By Bryan Dietzler The news for Bears fans in recent weeks has been difficult.  Two of the team’s brightest stars from the past, one from the distant and one from the more recent past, have been rumored to be suffering from head trauma related problems.  Famous running back and Hall of Famer Gale Sayers has […] The post The Head is the Hardest Hit: Briggs, Sayers and the Brain appeared first on Bears Gab.

Who is your preferred 2017 rookie quarterback?

Who is your preferred 2017 rookie quarterback?

The Chicago Bears gave quarterback Mike Glennon a three year contract, with the majority of his money due in 2017, making it essentially a one year deal. Glennon may go into 2017 as the #1 QB on the depth chart, but it will be up to him how long he keeps the job. The Bears gave Mark Sanchez a one year contract, which caused the majority of Bears’ fans to lose their minds, but in my opinion, he’s only coming in as a potential #3 QB. He was a good teammate to rookie Dak Prescott in Dallas last season, and he has a reputation of being a good guy around the NFL, so I’m not that worked up...

A Simple Proposal: The Hidden QB Solution

A Simple Proposal: The Hidden QB Solution

On the Bears roster is a 24-year-old with experience at quarterback in high school and college. He is a local boy, coming from Westchester, Illinois. He is therefore perfectly suited to be a hero for the city. Now, it has been a few years since he played quarterback. It was 2012 when he last played as a passer. Still, he has been a contributor since his arrival, albeit in a different role. For these reasons, I suggest that Cameron Meredith should be in contention to be the starting quarterback for the Chicago Bears. He has some advantages over the quarterbacks currently considered the...
Bears sign Mark Sanchez to back up Mike Glennon

Bears sign Mark Sanchez to back up Mike Glennon

I’m looking forward to watching this depth chart in action. The Chicago Bears apparently have figured out their quarterback depth chart for the offseason, and boy is it something. The team announced on Friday that they have signed Mark Sanchez to a one-year contract. With the Sanchez signing, their QB depth chart includes Mike Glennon, Mark Sanchez, David Fales, and Connor Shaw. The news of the Sanchez signing resulted in this tweet from Adam Schefter. Bears QB depth chart will be something like this: Mike Glennon, Mark Sanchez, David Fales, Connor Shaw. Hard to imagine them going QB...

2017 Bears Draft: Moving in the Second

2017 Bears Draft: Moving in the Second

Moving Around in the Second Last week, I looked at how reasonable it might be for the Bears to pick up a second pick in the first round. There are some reasons tied into the CBA that make that particular scenario uniquely valuable. However, this is a draft that is rich in defensive backs and tight ends, both positions that Chicago could stand to see some improvement. How reasonable is it that Ryan Pace could take advantage of that depth and pick up an extra second-round pick without giving up #3? The answer is “not very,” and it comes down to how valuable second-round picks are. A...

Report: Chicago Bears Adding Mark Sanchez

Report: Chicago Bears Adding Mark Sanchez

Earlier, Lester told you that Mark Sanchez was visiting the Bears. Well, that visit appears to have led somewhere, as Ian Rapoport is reporting that Sanchez will sign with the Bears. The addition of Sanchez adds experience, as he has 72 career starts (compared to Mike Glennon’s 18), and he adds more recent experience, as well. In 2016 he attempted 7 more passes than Glennon (for 18 total). Obviously, Sanchez is unlikely to be given a starting role on the team, and it is even unlikely that he will compete for the job. However, Sanchez does have practice serving as a veteran presence in the...

ESPN to broadcast documentary series on Bears fans

The eight-part series will focus on a specific group of Bears fans at Soldier Field during the 2016 season. In an official announcement, ESPN revealed that they will be showcasing an eight episode feature series on Chicago Bears fans starting Tuesday, April 11. Entitled “We The Fans”, ironically the profile show follows season ticket holders from Section 250 at Soldier Field during this past year’s dreadful 3-13 season. Former head coach Mike Ditka and defensive tackle Steve McMichael are set to make cameos in episode one to give the program a boost before focusing on the real...

Chicago Bears 7 Round Mock Draft

Chicago Bears 7 Round Mock Draft

Every mock draft I go through, I’ll be sure to take a different mindset. In my first one, I went strict best player available. My last one, was the trade for Jimmy Garoppolo edition. This time, I went with what I would do if I were making the picks for the Chicago Bears, but with a couple of caveats. First off, I wouldn’t go too far down my board just to find a player I really liked. General managers generally stick with their draft boards, and the one I was playing with was the CBS Sports’ board. Scouts, coaches and GMs spend a lot of time ranking players, so I had to trust the...

Chicago Bears Draftwatch - Which one of these WR’s might end up as Glennon's favorite new target?

Chicago Bears Draftwatch - Which one of these WR’s might end up as Glennon's favorite new target?

Taywan Taylor, Zay Jones and Josh Reynolds Like it or not, the Bears cannot count on Kevin White to have a monster season. He has the potential but he'll have to stay on the field and demonstrate it opposite Cameron Meredith. If White fails, Chicago needs to make sure new signal-caller Mike Glennon has capable targets to throw to on the outside of the formation. Luckily for Ryan Pace there are plenty to choose from in the upcoming draft. Taywan Taylor, WR, Western Kentucky Taylor had an ultra-productive run as a Hilltopper in Bowling Green. He played both as a boundary receiver and on the...

7-Round Mock Draft: The ACC Edition

7-Round Mock Draft: The ACC Edition

Welcome back. This series of mock drafts explores what would happen if the Bears had to select their picks in the 2017 draft from players out of a particular conference. Previously, I’ve looked at the Big Ten [here], the non-Power Five [here], and the SEC [here]. This article looks at the ACC. As usual, I am not allowing myself any trades, and I am not pretending that this sort of limitation is rational. I am simply trying to highlight players who might be reasonable choices at each position where the Bears might pick. Click [here] to see the full draft. #3) Mitch Trubisky, North Carolina...

Introducing the WCG All-Bears Post-Ditka Team

In a new series, we will honor the best Chicago Bears since Mike Ditka was fired after 1992. The 2017 Bears season is a milestone of sorts: the 25th season after the firing of Mike Ditka. That's an odd way to contextualize a Bears season, except when you realize the shadow Da Coach still casts over a portion of this fan base. Some fans love the Ditkatization of our culture. Others detest it. Me? I love history, which somewhat ironically is the reason I want fans to look beyond Iron Mike and appreciate all this franchise has done since his departure. The ‘85 Bears were one-in-a-million,...
