Lions-Bears preview podcast: Chicago’s defense is vulnerable without Danny Trevathan

Lions-Bears preview podcast: Chicago’s defense is vulnerable without Danny Trevathan

Robert Zeglinski helps us break down the Bears, and what problems they present. The First Byte podcast is here, and we’ve got our old friend Robert Zeglinski of Windy City Gridiron, The Athletic Chicago and Rock River Times with us to break down our rival Chicago Bears. The Bears are a team very much poised to play spoiler in the final two months of the season. At 3-6, their playoff hopes are pretty much done, but they’ve taken down good teams (Steelers, Ravens and Panthers) along the way, and can certainly give anyone that overlooks them some trouble. So we asked Robert about his...

Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears Week 11 NFL preview: On Paper

Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears Week 11 NFL preview: On Paper

Our statistical breakdown and prediction for Lions-Bears. It’s Chicago Bears week, and while I’d love to boldly proclaim that #WeOwnTheBears right off the top, last week’s squeaker against the Cleveland Browns has me hesitant to say anything definitive about this Detroit Lions team. Detroit is on a two-game winning streak and won both games by double-digits, but there are cracks forming in their game, especially on defense. That being said, the offensive side of the ball is extremely healthy and playing much better as of late. That makes for a good matchup this week against a Bears...

Friday open thread: Which Bears player is the most dangerous vs. Lions?

Friday open thread: Which Bears player is the most dangerous vs. Lions?

Which Bears players could give the Lions fits on Sunday? If last week taught Detroit Lions fans anything, it’s that good players can help bad teams compete in a game they should otherwise lose. DeShone Kizer played a hell of a game against the Lions last week, and may have won the game had he not missed two key possessions with a rib injury. The Chicago Bears are no different. They have a slew of talented players, likely more than the Browns, but haven’t been able to put it all together to sport a competitive team. The Bears are just 3-6 through nine weeks with all realistic hopes for...

Lions-Bears injury report: Lions offensive line at full health

Lions-Bears injury report: Lions offensive line at full health

For the first time this year, the Lions had full participation for their starting offensive linemen. T.J. Lang was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice for the Detroit Lions. Lang missed last week due to a concussion, but his full participation is a good sign Lang is nearly cleared from concussion protocol. It’s looking like Lang will play this week against the Chicago Bears, meaning for the first time all season, the Lions will have all five starting offensive linemen healthy and active on Sunday. It couldn’t come at a better time, as the Bears’ front seven is one of the...

Bears scouting report: Chicago’s defense will keep them in this game

Bears scouting report: Chicago’s defense will keep them in this game

This Bears team is on the rise, but the Lions could exploit some serious weaknesses. It’s Chicago Bears week, and while I’d love to gloss over this game and immediately claim #WeOwnTheBears, this year I’m not so sure. Chicago has looked extremely competitive this season, pulling off wins against the Steelers, Ravens and Panthers already this season. In fact, Chicago was 5 yards away from pulling off an upset over the Falcons to kick off the season. The Bears may only be 3-6, but they’ve already matched their win total from last year, and they’ve nearly won a few other games this...

Wednesday open thread: Are the Bears better than an average 3-6 team?

Wednesday open thread: Are the Bears better than an average 3-6 team?

Is the Bears’ win-loss record deceptive? They say you are whatever your record says you are, but I rarely believe that to actually be true. There is so much luck involved in the final outcome of an NFL game that sometimes teams will just completely over or underperform based on nothing but pure fortune. Many would argue that the Detroit Lions were on the “overperform” end of the spectrum last year, when eight unlikely fourth-quarter comebacks propelled the team to a 9-7 record and playoff berth, despite roster filled with holes. That brings us to the 2017 Chicago Bears....

2018 NFL Draft Open Thread: 10 players the Bears should take an early look at

2018 NFL Draft Open Thread: 10 players the Bears should take an early look at

The 2018 NFL Draft isn’t until April, but it’s never too early to prepare for it. Let’s get one thing straight right off the bat: I love the NFL Draft. From the time I was little, I’ve always been fascinated with the concept of building an NFL team from the ground up. Reading mock drafts, scouting reports and other types of articles helped keep me occupied during the incredibly long offseason. Ever since I started breaking down the players and watching tape for myself, I’m able to get a better sense of what each positional group of players looks like. Although I still have a lot...

Chicago Bears on a Bye: How not to watch the game this weekend

Chicago Bears on a Bye: How not to watch the game this weekend

This is literally everything you need to know about a few things that some of the WCG staff will be doing with no Bears game to watch this week. Like the other Windy City Gridiron staffers, this is our side gig. Real jobs, family and school takes up a lot of our time. We may be building towards something bigger, but for now, writing about the Bears here at WCG is our passion. For me, Sunday with the Bears requires a TV, my laptop, my cell phone, and my undivided attention for about 4 or 5 hours. Then I usually get a head start on writing some stuff Sunday night, which always includes me...

The Bears Den, November 3, 2017, The “Homemade” Edition

Today is the day when YOU get to be the linkmasters here in the Den. Since it’s the bye week and things are a bit slow, I thought we could do something totally different and a bit fun, have a “roll your own” version of the Den where YOU supply the links you want to discuss. The normal rules apply, it’s not an open thread, we are a Chicago Bears / NFL forum, we don’t do politics or religion here in the Den, and that includes anything related to the National Anthem. Helmet tip to Lester Wiltfong, Jr. for the idea for this Den. To make a link, here’s the easy way to do it. Find...

Otis Wilson: If These Walls Could Talk

Reviewing the charismatic linebacker’s new book My review of If These Walls Could Talk; Stories from the Chicago Bears Sideline, Locker Room, and Press Box, with Otis Wilson and Chet Coppock. There are some books that you pick up and just simply can’t put down because the narrative is so compelling, you will sacrifice sleep, food, and water to know what happens. There are some books that you have to put down after each chapter because the beauty of the prose needs time to sit on your tongue like good bourbon on an autumn evening.

Bears mailbag: Sitting pretty and Fox-y at the bye

Bears mailbag: Sitting pretty and Fox-y at the bye

From Fox-ball, to wide receiver misuse, it's another jam-packed Bears mailbag. It's been gone over to a nauseating extent at this point, but at the midway point, the Bears sit at 3-5 for the third time in four seasons. There are reasons for hope, and places to adjust for the stretch run down the season. This is where we yet again take stock of these not yet good, kind of actually fun to watch on some level, but also bad Bears. For one, why is the offensive passing game so limited? Who to blame? Where does confidence play into Chicago's recent defensive success? Here's this week's...

How are the Chicago Bears defense and special teams shaping up for the second half?

How are the Chicago Bears defense and special teams shaping up for the second half?

In Lester’s latest T Formation Conversation, he discusses the current state of the Chicago Bears defense and special teams with a look towards the second half and beyond. Even though the Chicago Bears are bringing up the rear in the NFC North, most of us Bears’ fans are happy with what’s taking place on the defensive side of things. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio has his players playing an aggressive and physical brand of football. The young talent on that side of the ball are starting to come into their own, led by defensive lineman Akiem Hicks and outside linebacker Leonard...
