Bears Takeaways: Another Week, Another 3 Point Loss

The over for this week’s Bears game wasn’t 60, but it was 50. Another points free-for-all. You can’t call it a shootout because neither Falcons QB Marcus Mariota or Justin Fields threw for more than 160 yards. Maybe you could call it a runoff since the Bears ran for almost as many yards as they passed. This week’s culprit for the Bears 27-24 loss was … Continue reading Bears Takeaways: Another Week, Another 3 Point Loss

Bears Takeaways: Justin Good, Defense Bad, Bears Lose

Another week and another 30 point game for the Bears offense. And another 30-point game for their opponent. The Bears lost another heartbreaker to the Detroit Lions, 31-30.

Fantasy Football’s Worst: Week 8 Disappointments

If you had Christian McCaffrey (40.26 Fantasy points), AJ Brown (39.6), or Alvin Kamara (42.8) in Week 8, congratulations, and I hope they carried your team. If you had one of the surprise performers for last week, maybe a Justin Fields (26.1) or a Tyler Conklin (25.9), lucky you. But not everything went as planned.

Bears Takeaways: We don’t need Roquan Smith?

The Bears have been active. I will typically always take some activity over no activity. As always, some of the Bears’ moves have made sense and some have not.

We can only stay optimistic and look at … Continue reading Bears Takeaways: Week 6 Regression
