    Welcome to ‘The Full Go'! Jason opens the show by chronicling the latest developments in the Justin Fields saga. Bears head coach Matt Nagy has yet to make a decision about who will be under center this Sunday against the Browns as Andy Dalton deals with a knee injury.

Ozzie Guillen is an analyst for NBC Sports Chicago and was the White Sox manager the last time the team won an AL Central title in 2008.

Adam Amin has done play-by-play for nearly every team in town and is Jason's teammate at NBC Sports Chicago. Adam talks about finding his style as a play-by-play announcer, the worst day of his career, and how he thinks this new Bulls core will mesh (59:00). In Outside the Chi, Jason explains why he may be the final remaining Ben Simmons fan on Earth. Plus, JJ Reddick announces his retirement from the NBA, so naturally we discuss the most hated Duke players of all time (1:28:00).

    Jason opens the show by recapping the Bears' 20-17 victory over Cincinnati (0:30). Justin Fields got the bulk of the reps following Andy Dalton's knee injury. We saw some inexperience, but we also got a good look at the first-round pick's upside. Then, Jason opens up the voicemail line at 773-359-3103 (16:00). Where does Luis Robert rank among Chicago baseball's best prospects? Jason also receives a call from “Vince in Detroit” who may have a counterpoint to “Bill in L.A.” and his Celtics bias. Jason gets a former player's perspective on today's Bears game with Anthony Herron (31:00). Anthony is an analyst for Fox-32 Chicago and SiriusXM and played in the NFL for Detroit, Atlanta, and Green Bay.
