Hoge: Bears Got Better In Denver

(Photo by Dustin Bradford/Getty Images) DENVER — Regardless of what the scoreboard ended up saying Saturday night, it was clear that the Bears were going to leave Colorado feeling much better about themselves than they did a week ago in Cincinnati. As it turned out, backup quarterback Chase Daniel led a fourth quarter comeback that resulted in a 24-23 victory over the Broncos, but more important than just the game, the Bears can say they won the...

Preseason Week 2 Postgame: Chicago Bears ruthlessly devour reeling Broncos in 24-23 humiliation

The Bears first-team finally got a reasonable portion of game time, with mixed results!

After reports from joint practices today, I was hoping to see the Bears offense would come out pouncing. My fantasy wasn’t quite realized, but the Bears moved the ball against what is still a good defense, and we got to see a little more of the potential we all feel this unit has under Matt Nagy’s guidance. Last week, too many people mocked me for caring about the preseason when I bared my wounded...

WATCH: Bradley Chubb takes down Mitch Trubisky for safety

If Saturday is a glimpse of what Denver Broncos outside linebacker Bradley Chubb is about to bring to the NFL, opposing quarterbacks better watch out.Chubb, the No.5 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, used his outstanding burst to take advantage of a bad snap.

Bears’ Adam Shaheen carted off the field with an ankle injury

Early in the first quarter, Chicago Bears’ tight end Adam Shaheen caught a pass from Mitchell Trubisky for a five yard gain, but he seemed to have injured his ankle on the tackle. He scooted along the turf for a moment before limping to his sideline. A few moments later Chicago’s medical personal brought the cart over to take him to the locker room.

His return to the game has officially been ruled doubtful.

It appeared as though his toe got caught in the ground and his ankle twisted,...

Which offensive group is the Bears’ biggest strength?

The Bears have a much improved offensive unit, but where does their strength lie?

The Bears have been in camp for over a month and while there are still plenty of starters that haven’t seen the field yet, there’s still a lot of knowledge that has been gained.

One thing is for sure, the Bears have much better playmakers on the offensive side then they did a year ago.

Throughout the offseason the Bears have added receivers Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller, tight end Trey...

Can the Bears really trade for Khalil Mack?
