Bears have 5th best odds to win Super Bowl LIV in 2020

I’m ready to turn the page on the 2018 season. Can we get to Chicago Bears’ training camp in Bourbonnais already? We haven’t even determined who will be playing in Super Bowl LII in Atlanta on February 3, 2019, but there are already odds available for Super Bowl LIV, which will take pace on February 3, 2020, from the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. A lot can happen between now and then (draft, free agency, injury coaching changes, etc.), but that’s not stopping Jeff Sherman (@golfodds) from sharing some early odds, and the Chicago Bears are checking in with the fifth...

Should the 49ers look into bringing Ed Donatell back?

He missed out on the Chicago Bears defensive coordinator job, and now his future is uncertain. Should the 49ers sweet-talk him into returning? The Chicago Bears have concluded their defensive coordinator search by hiring Chuck Pagano to fill the role left by Vic Fangio, who left to become head coach of the Denver Broncos. Many have fond memories of Fangio as the San Francisco 49ers’ defensive coordinator during the Jim Harbaugh era. Fangio coached one of the best defenses in the league, playing at a high level even in the face of numerous injuries. The bend, don’t break defense offered...

Bears make Trey Burton a late addition to injury report ahead of Eagles game

Something to watch. The Chicago Bears have made a late addition to the injury report ahead of their Wild Card playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Former Eagle and current Bears starting tight end Trey Burton is now questionable to play, per the Bears’ public relations staff. Burton is listed with a groin injury. Burton was a full participant in practice all week; he wasn’t even listed on the injury report in any capacity. So, this development is certainly unexpected.

Bears vs. Eagles Injury Report: Eddie Jackson 1 of 3 questionable for Chicago

This is the full injury report for the Chicago Bears and the Philadelphia Eagles in advance of Sunday's Wildcard game. The Chicago Bears aren’t completely healthy heading into their first playoff game in eight years, but the training room at Halas Hall hasn’t exactly been a busy place this season.
