      Six players to watch: What will Mitch Trubisky do for an encore?

      How much we should make out of the NFL’s first preseason week is anyone’s guess, but an assortment of marquee position battles are heating up. Trubisky has been the talk of the league after a strong opening performance against Denver, along with the woeful play of expensive free-agent acquisition Mike Glennon, who threw a pick-six on his second play. Trubisky – who started just 13 career games at North Carolina – wowed by displaying an accurate arm, and just as importantly, the ability to move the pocket.

      Bears Talk Podcast: Glennon, Trubisky moving in opposite directions

      The expectation for players entering their second year in the NFL — like Leonard Floyd, Jonathan Bullard and Nick Kwiatkoski — is that, with a season of experience, they can play faster and smarter. Case in point: In the last 15 years, only 13 rookies have had 10 or more sacks, while there have been 30 second-year players to have 10 or more sacks.  But the Bears’ front seven isn’t just feeling confident because of expected gains from Floyd, Bullard and Kwiatkoski (all of whom have had, to varying degrees, good preseasons so far). The front seven also has four veterans entering Year…

      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?

      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” stre…

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…
