Don't be surprised if Bears GM Ryan Pace trades up to draft this guy

Ryan Pace’s first-round pick seems so obvious that I wouldn’t be surprised to see him trade up to make it happen.

Yes, the Bears have a need at edge rusher – “need’’ is being charitable; more like a pending apocalypse -- but more important is the need to protect quarterback Mitch Trubisky.

We went...

Bears honor Devin Hester and Matt Forte in retirement ceremony

Devin Hester drove to Halas Hall countless times during his eight remarkable seasons with the Bears. On Monday, en route to the retirement ceremony honoring him and former teammate Matt Forte, there was a new element to that old road.

Consummate Bears, nothing deterred the under-appreciated Devin Hester and Matt Forte

Despite rule changes and offensive mediocrity, Hester and Forte couldn’t be stopped from blazing trails in Chicago.

When you think of Lovie Smith’s Bears, forcing turnovers comes to mind. Brian Urlacher making leap interceptions and blazing from sideline to sideline is not soon forgotten. Charles Tillman punching footballs out of receiver’s hands. The defensive works, and almost nothing else, are prominent.

You rarely, if ever consider the “supporting” actors in this Bears drama....

Every Bears first-round draft pick since 1975

From Hall of Famers to outright busts, the Bears have had a mixed bag of success in the first round of the NFL draft. Here is every Bears first-rounder since Walter Payton was selected with the No. 4 pick in 1975.

(Note: The Bears did not have first-round picks in 1978, 1997, 2006, 2009 and 2010.)

The Bears 2018 win total is set at 6.5, are you taking the over or under?

According to BetOnline.ag, the Chicago Bears are going to improve on their 5-11 season from a year ago. The online gambling site has their over/under for wins at 6.5, and I’d imagine they get a lot of action on the over with the good vibes coming out of Halas Hall these last few months.

A brand new head coach and offensive coaching staff is set to maximize the potential of second year quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. Running back Jordan Howard is sticking around to try for a third...

Breaking news: the Bears are probably going to get a good player with their first round pick

Enough nitpicking. It isn’t “Player A or bust” for the Bears at No. 8 overall. An abundance of options means it’s difficult to fail.

Outside of overuse of jargon and Twitter GIF threads, what the NFL’s draft season mostly produces by April is over analysis of “millennial” individual prospects. Because there’s nothing left to discuss that isn’t beating a dead horse (in this case, mercilessly chopping it up): the early spring is about taking away the worst traits of clearly...
