Should Chicago Bears Rest Khalil Mack in Week 8?

The defense of the Chicago Bears has definitely made a leap in the right direction since the arrival of outside linebacker Khalil Mack. Before the trade for the 2016 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, the Bears weren’t on the minds of many when it came to mentioning teams who would make it to the […] Should Chicago Bears Rest Khalil Mack in Week 8? - Bear Goggles On - Bear Goggles On - A Chicago Bears Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Stock up, stock down: Bears-Patriots

The Bears are back at .500 but all is not lost...or is it? That was a tough loss Sunday and the Bears are back at .500. Granted, not many would have picked the Patriots game to be a win when the schedule was announced, but disappointment comes with changing expectations. Being .500 here is actually progress for the Bears, who have been out of it by Halloween for the last few years. They have a chance to get back into the win column over the next couple of weeks and get things pointed in the right direction heading into the halfway point. So let’s take a look back at Sunday’s game and...
