The Bears have stayed steadfast focused on preserving a high draft pick in the 2023 NFL draft. The Bears have now lost six in a row. They have lost 9 of their last 10. Things look very good in Week 14 as they have a bye. Then, they get the Bills and the Eagles in back-to-back weeks and finish the season against the Lions and … Continue reading Bears Takeaways: Chicago keeps the eyes on the prize
A Jaire Alexander interception and a touchdown drive by Aaron Rodgers were enough for the Packers to pull away against the Chicago 28-19 on Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field. Rodgers improved to 24-5 as a starter against Chicago as he surpassed Brett Favre for the most wins against Chicago in Packers franchise history (Favre had 23 wins during his career against the Bears). Green Bay … Continue reading Rodgers, Packers rally past the Bears 28-19
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
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. Taking a 24-10 lead into the fourth quarter should have spelled victory for the Bears but the NFL gods had other ideas for the Bears who have now lost three in a row, and six of their … Continue reading Bears Takeaways: Justin Good, Defense Bad, Bears Lose
Again, we see great resiliency from the last week’s Worst list. Davante Adams had 36.6 Fantasy points, almost all of it by halftime. However, Josh Jacobs was fairly mediocre with 11.7 points. Joe Burrow was decent with 19.14 points, but Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins continue to not thrive without Ja’Marr Chase with only 9.4 points and 13 points respectively. Congratulations to those that had … Continue reading Fantasy Football’s Worst: How about that Packers Offense?
Could the Bears be the most exciting team to watch right now? They are definitely in the top 5. For the second week in a row a Bears game had an over of 67 points. For the third week in a row, a Bears game had an over of 46. And an over of 46 in the last four of five games. High scoring games … Continue reading Bears Takeaways: Fields on Fire
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. You didn’t expect the Dallas defense to give up 29 … Continue reading Fantasy Football’s Worst: Week 8 Disappointments
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. Hitting the ejection button on Robert Quinn made sense. It didn’t look like he was going to repeat his career year from last season, but he is good enough that he still commanded a fourth-round draft … Continue reading Bears Takeaways: We don’t need Roquan Smith?
Do the Bears have a lead running back? Just because David Montgomery starts, does it mean he is the Bears RB1? I am not so sure. Montgomery had 15 carries, Herbert had 12, and they both had exactly 62 yards and a great average per attempt. Herbert had the receiving touchdown and Montgomery had the rushing touchdown. This is a powerful committee, especially when you … Continue reading Bears Takeaways: Week 7 Was an Aha Moment
Last week, we talked about how the Bears have been competitive all season long. Keeping games close and only a play or two from winning games. The Bears continued that trend last Thursday with a 12-7 loss to the Commanders. This is a team that they should have beat handily and had several opportunities to do so. We can only stay optimistic and look at … Continue reading Bears Takeaways: Week 6 Regression
