Panthers 2017 Schedule Preview: Week 7 at Chicago Bears

Panthers 2017 Schedule Preview: Week 7 at Chicago Bears

The Panthers will get a few extra days to prepare for their road trip to Chi-Town. The Panthers will be back on the road in their Week 7 matchup with the Chicago Bears, but they will get a few extra days rest after their Thursday night game against the Eagles in Week 6. Hopefully those few days will benefit the Panthers and help them pick up another win. The Bears a rebuilding and will most likely be starting a rookie quarterback, so this should be a game the Panthers win. Nothing is guaranteed in the NFL, and teams don’t win games on paper so anything’s possible, but this one should go...

10 Most Important Bears of 2017: #5 Cameron Meredith is ready to be Chicago’s #1

10 Most Important Bears of 2017: #5 Cameron Meredith is ready to be Chicago’s #1

Cameron Meredith quickly became one of my favorite Chicago Bears to watch last year. His week to week improvement was fun to track, and by year’s end, he was playing like a number one wide receiver. I’m not saying he’s about to step into Julio Jones territory, I’m just saying he was putting up WR1 numbers down the stretch last year. I won’t get too far into the stats, because anything I write up will pale in comparison to Patti’s Number Plunge on Meredith, but did you realize that in the last five games of the 2016 season, Meredith had 31 receptions, and 439 receiving yards?...

What are the Chicago Bears “sneaky” good at?

What are the Chicago Bears “sneaky” good at?

The Chicago Bears had a tough go of it last year, but it wasn’t all doom and gloom. There were a few individual bright spots, like Jordan Howard, Cameron Meredith, Akiem Hicks, Cody Whitehair, and Leonard Floyd to name a few. From a team standpoint, it’s a bit tougher to find something that they could look back on with pride, and hope to build on in 2017, but ESPN (via Football Outsiders' extensive statistical databases) recently took a peek at two such things. They went through all 32 teams in the NFL and found one thing on offense, and one on defense, that was a “sneaky”...

Casting the Bears in "Game of Thrones"

The new season of the hit HBO series premieres Sunday night. So let's take a look at comparable Bears players to power players in the land of Westeros. After over 25 years waiting on both the book and TV series, winter has finally arrived in the HBO series Game of Thrones. The endgame and final battle with the White Walkers is on the horizon as the power families resolve their conflict. With that end in clear sight and in mind, what started as a cult phenomenon, has become TV's premier blockbuster.

Beyond The Bears: Our Other Football Fandoms

There’s more to football than just the NFL... Anybody reading this post on a Sunday morning during the deepest pit of the off-season is likely a fanatical Chicago Bears fan (or at least a fanatical fan of SOME NFL team). I am a Chicago Bears fan root and branch. Having said that, I do have my other football fandoms as I am sure most of you do as well. Most of us have a college team or two that we support. In my case, I root for two... the “big school” from the state of my youth (more or less) and the college I attended. My “big school” is actually pretty small compared to...

Bears roster breakdown, 90-in-90: Connor Shaw

Bears roster breakdown, 90-in-90: Connor Shaw

Chicago's current fourth string quarterback is up on deck in this roster series. Sometimes in Chicago, there's no quarterback more welcome than the unknown, unproven type. Connor Shaw, who threw a whopping 16 passes in the 2016 preseason while throwing for two touchdowns, became something of a cult hero concerning the Bears after breaking his leg in Chicago's third preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs. A lost opportunity at making his mark, especially after the Bears suffered a heavy amount of quarterback injuries throughout the entirety of last season. Some felt, that if Shaw...

ESPN: Bears Will Struggle in the Next 3 Years

ESPN: Bears Will Struggle in the Next 3 Years

Thanks to the talking heads at ESPN, there is no need to play the next three seasons of NFL Football. We already know how things will turn out. So, it’s the NFL offseason and actual analysis is too hard, it seems. It would be possible, theoretically, to actually go through the rosters of teams and provide thoughtful breakdowns of the struggles ahead of some teams. It would even be possible to highlight health issues facing a major segment of the sport. Or, if you’re ESPN Insider, you can recycle the same talking points as always and create a ranking list of “who’s in the best shape...

10 Most Important Bears of 2017: #8 Is Dion Sims ready to break out?

10 Most Important Bears of 2017: #8 Is Dion Sims ready to break out?

For the 9th straight year, I'm bringing you who I believe will be the ten most important Chicago Bears for the upcoming season. At #8, free agent pick up, Dion Sims. Last year the Chicago Bears got decent production from the tight end position. The five guys that lined up there amassed 71 catches, 672 yards, and five touchdowns. Zach Miller was their number one tight end, but the injury bug bit him again, and he only appeared in 10 games. Miller, who has never played in all 16 games in his career, will turn 33 this October, so the Bears had to strengthen the position. They did so by...

Which Chicago Bears player are you most excited for in 2017?

Which Chicago Bears player are you most excited for in 2017?

When you’re coming off a three win campaign, the expectations for excitement are usually pretty low. But when you’re talking about a relatively young team, with a number of prospects that are primed to surprise/breakout in 2017, like the Chicago Bears, then our excitement levels are sure to spike. Plus, this is the offseason, if we can’t get excited about our favorite team now, then when can we get excited? I posed the above question to the staff at Windy City Gridiron and also to Bears’ fans via our Twitter account. I’ll share some of their responses later, but first, let me...

Bears roster breakdown, 90-in-90: Michael Burton

Former Lions starting fullback turned Bear, Michael Burton, heads up this series next. The days of the regular traditional fullback in the NFL are all but gone. So often now, instead of using a roster spot on a player that’s limited in versatility, many teams instead deploy a tight end in a set package or individual play as a fullback, offering them a multitude of possibilities on offense. It’s the nature of the efficient beast in roster building. Given that no one can be quite sure how the Chicago Bears will work their no doubt new heavy-set offense in 2017, late May waiver claim...

Bears roster breakdown, 90-in-90: Sherrick McManis

2016 Bears special teams captain Sherrick McManis is next up in this roster breakdown series. There are players in the NFL who simply know their role. Anything they’re asked to do in one capacity, such as Chicago Bears special teams gunner, Sherrick McManis, they excel. When pushed outside of those parameters into traditional means, such as on the defensive back-end, you receive less than ample results. In seven NFL seasons, that’s the best way to describe McManis: a quality special teamer who can be considered a real asset on said unit, but abhorrent otherwise when pressed in on...

Bears roster breakdown, 90-in-90: Nick Kwiatkoski

The next part of this Bears roster series has us taking a look at inside linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski. Nick Kwiatkoski was a fourth-round pick for the Bears in 2016. At the time the pick was made, many fans were wondering why Ryan Pace would draft an inside linebacker after signing Jerrell Freeman and Danny Trevathan in free agency. It turned out to be a fortuitous selection, as Trevathan’s injury has opened the door for Kwiatkoski to receive more playing time. As you would expect from any rookie, 2016 was an up-and-down season for Kwiatkoski. After being thrust into action, he started...
