Sam Greene/The Enquirer via Imagn Content Services, LLC

The crew gathers and discuss their thoughts on how the transition at QB has gone for the Chicago Bears.

(In the voice of Bill Swerski)

Alright, my frents. So Da Moment has (potentially) arrived for Justin to take Da Field(s) as Da QB for Daaaa Bears.

(Ends voiceover)

As a disclaimer, I did include the word “potentially” on purpose, because I still feel Matt Nagy is fighting internally on the decision to hand the reins over...

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The undefeated Carolina Panthers travel to face the 1-1 Houston Texans on Thursday Night Football, and rookie quarterback Davis Mills will get the start for Houston. The Panthers have a retread at QB in Sam Darnold, but so far Darnold has looked good in Joe Brady’s offensive scheme.

4 things we learned from the Chicago Bears, including Robert Quinn equaling his sack total from 2020 and how receivers are adjusting to Justin Fields as the starting QB

Bears fans have great way of showing appreciation for Andy Dalton

Chicago Bears fans are excited to get their first real look at rookie Justin Fields, but that does not mean they want to kick veteran quarterback Andy Dalton while he is down.

Windy City Gridiron picks Bears-Browns

Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports

Football misery thy name is Cleveland and a lot of the time, Chicago.

While not exactly known for their consistent success, one can take solace knowing the Bears have it better than the Browns. Not a difficult task, mind you, but a fact, and moral victory nonetheless. For comparison’s sake, the last quarter-century or so — let’s say 28 seasons — is an excellent place to start. I would never share something arbitrary, something bereft of logic...

Fantasy Monsters of the Midway: Start/Sit Guide for Week 3

Jon Durr-USA TODAY Sports

It’s week 3, and we have multiple games to reflect on to set our fantasy lineups.

It’s always going to be easier to discuss the Chicago Bears after a win. Considering the team is tied for first place in the division, some of the cracks in the armor can be ignored.

For now.

What can’t be ignored are the NFL team offense rankings, and where they have our beloved Monsters out of 32 NFL teams.

The Bears are 30th in yards per game (YPG), 31st in Passing...

Bears could slow-play Andy Dalton’s recovery if Justin Fields plays well?

Bears vs. Browns: Week 3 Game Preview

Justin Fields’ first start comes against a team with high expectations and a lot of good players

Justin Fields’ first start at quarterback is going to come on the road against a team many had as a playoff team this preseason and one that was expected to really build off the good season they had a year ago.

This is a fairly less-than-ideal spot for that, even if we all think that he’s built to handle it.

Fields has started plenty of huge...

Column: Matt Nagy didn’t have to state the obvious — of course Andy Dalton can lose his job to Justin Fields because of an injury

A lot can happen between now and whenever Andy Dalton returns from his knee injury, and Matt Nagy provided more than enough to read between the lines: Justin Fields is competing against himself to maintain the starting job.

Chicago Bears Sackwatch 2021: Week 2 vs Cincinnati Bengals

Sam Greene/The Enquirer via Imagn Content Services, LLC

Lester breaks down the three sacks the Bears allowed against the Cincinnati Bengals on week two.

As we go through the coming weeks you won’t always see me place the blame for the sacks allowed on the offensive linemen, as pass protection is truly a team effort. So you’ll see me ding the tight ends, the running backs, the quarterback, and on occasion there’s nothing really wrong in what the Bears did, and those will go into the...

Bears’ Edwards powers up, returns from suspension

A deep defensive line gets even stronger.

While it may not have been the news of the day, nor did the Bears themselves officially acknowledge it, they have elevated Mario Edwards to the 53-man roster. After serving a two-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, the 27-year-old edge rusher makes his way back into the Bears’ defensive line rotation.

Edwards’ return could not come at a better time....
