Chicago Bears Fans: What AAF Rules Would You Most / Least Like To See In NFL

The latest Windy City Gridiron Roundtable is all about the innovative rules being used by the AAF

It’s no secret that the NFL has serious issues in just about every facet of officiating the game. The rules are imprecise, often impossible to understand or even explain, the officiating has been horrible and the replay system indecipherable.

To make matters worse, the league regularly admits that mistakes are made and yet nothing is done about it. New Orleans Saints fans are convinced a bad...

NFLPA President Eric Winston preparing players for 2021 NFL Lockout

The league has gone too far away from player’s interests in Winston’s eyes.

In an interview with 670 The Score on Thursday, NFLPA President Eric Winston steadfastly maintained that he’s begun earnest preparation for players for a lockout in 2021. Winston has only been in this leadership role since his election in 2014 and when asked to give his reasoning, he said of the NFL, “it’s not a player-friendly league anymore.”

It’s a well-known underlying fact to this stage, but the...

Bears are expected to be in the hunt for a running back. Here are 10 potential middle-round draft options.

The Bears didn’t sign Kareem Hunt, and it’s possible they didn’t even try. But finding a running back is expected to be a top priority in their offseason plan.

Breaking Down Every Single Mitch Trubisky Interception From the 2018 Season

In his sophomore campaign, Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky saw statistical improvement across the board. He completed a higher rate of passes, threw for more yards per attempt, and was much more efficient throwing touchdowns. The one area where he regressed from his rookie campaign (statistically speaking), was throwing interceptions. He threw them on 2.8% of his passing attempts in 2018, compared to just 2.1% in 2017. If he had stuck to his 2017 rate he would have been intercepted only...

The former Hurricane standout finished his collegiate career with 164 tackles and five interceptions in four seasons.

The 2019 NFL Scouting Combine is merely a few weeks away, and the anticipation among Chicago Bears fans is the lowest it has been in years.

With no selections in the first two rounds of the draft, the Bears won’t have access to any of this year’s elite prospects. Plus, they are already set at a multitude of positions, so they won’t have many dire needs to fix this...

Why Reducing Turnovers is Key for Bears Offense in 2019

Last season, the Chicago Bears had a legitimate offense. The 2018 Coach of the Year, Matt Nagy, brought with him an offense that schemed players open, created mismatches and, more importantly, produced points. General manager Ryan Pace also was able to surround Mitch Trubisky with a plethora of new playmakers: Trey Burton, Taylor Gabriel, Allen […] The post Why Reducing Turnovers is Key for Bears Offense in 2019 appeared first on The Chicago Audible.
