The Chicago Bears go on the road to play the Daniel Jones lead New York Giants. The big question is if Justin Fields will be able to have a bounce back game against a poor New York Giants defense that could be without Leonard Williams. David Montgomery was missing during practice as the Chicago Bears continue to be extra secretive about any injuries. Byron Pringle was placed on Injured Reserve and Reggie Roberson was added to the practice squad.Merch Store: https://www.unbearablesports.shop/

Lucas Patrick started but was not at the Center position, will he stay at the right guard position or will he change at all.The defense did their thing and wasn't great or bad... just in the middle.

The Chicago Bears offense did nothing in the air against the 49ers and the Green Bay Packers but there is reason for optimism against the Houston Texans Week 3 of the NFL Season. Darnell Mooney and Cole Kmet have been silent for the first 2 weeks but the Bears are emphasizing a more balanced offense this week and could be primed to shock the NFL world with big games. The Justin Fields narrative stays the same, can he take the next step and facilitate this offense and be the leader they need without having to need David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert to have big games averaging 8+ yards a carry. It also might be the first game with the true offensive line with Lucas Patrick back under center for the Bears and Teven Jenkins at right guard.The Bears Defense has been quietly poor after a poor day against the Green Bay Packers running backs. The Bears look to lock down Damien Pierce and Rex Burkhead and they might be without Roquan Smith so it might be the Jack Sanborn show. Jaylon Johnson should be able to lock down whoever he covers but the rookies Kyler Gordon and Jaquan Brisker will need to step up against Brandin Cooks.NEW Merch Store: https://www.unbearablesports.shop/

Justin Fields and the passing game could never get going due to the Packers passing defense. On the defensive side of the ball the Bears defense struggled to make tackles and that caused the Bears to allow a lot of yards to Aaron Jones. Aaron Rodgers didn't look great but he didn't need to with the run game.NEW Merch Store: https://www.unbearablesports.shop/

Previewing Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers with Brad and Johnny PayPal back to break down the Packers vs Bears game on Sunday Night Football. Justin Fields is here to dethrone Aaron Rodgers as the top quarterback in the NFC North and prove that they can play well in a non-monsoon. Teven Jenkins has been incredibly impressive so far but with Lucas Patrick coming back there will be a position battle at that right guard position but then hopefully Patrick can be healthy enough at the center position. The Bears can beat the Packers by pressuring Aaron Rodgers with Robert Quinn, Dominique Robinson, and Trevis Gipson. When Rodgers gets pressure in his face he can shut down. Arman Watts is someone to look out for, the former Viking can really pressure up the middle.

The boys take turns going through the offense and the defense and giving you someone to watch even when the no names are out there with player numbers. We of course have to talk about Roquan Smith's trade request and where he might go.On offense players like Justin Fields and Equanimeous St Brown have been showing chemistry with Tajae Sharpe and Dazz Newsome waiting in the wings. The offensive line will be huge to focus on with almost every position up in the air with Braxton Jones, Ja'Tyre Carter, Teven Jenkins, Doug Kramer, Zachary Thomas, Larry Borom, and Riley Reiff all fighting for positions.The defense will be the first time we watch rookie sensations Kyler Gordon and Jaquan Brisker. We also might be able to see an improved pass rush with Al-Quadin Muhammad and Justin Jones as newcomers looking to make an impact.
Our final position profile goes through the Quarterback position for the Chicago Bears. We take a deep dive into Justin Fields and how he could have a breakout season this year. We have a new offensive coordinator in Luke Getsy and his outside zone type of offense should have some key traits that can benefit Justin Fields. Justin Fields has made a lot of new connections with Equanimeous St. Brown, Darnell Mooney, and rising star Tajae Sharpe. Besides Justin Fields being a fantasy football sleeper, we go through the backups Trevor Siemian and Nathan Peterman.We also breakdown what has been happening at training camp with Braxton Jones taking more snaps with the starters, Teven Jenkins is back in the lineup, and the injury bug getting Velus Jones Jr, Dante Pettis, N'Keal Harry, Duke Shelley, and many others
The running game will look different for the Chicago Bears with the new offensive coordinator Luke Getsy. With a larger emphasis on the rushing attack will David Montgomery be able to break 1000 yards this season? Will Khalil Herbert be a player to watch this year and take carries away from Montgomery or will Monty be a bell cow running back. Trestan Ebner is also turning heads in camp with his impressive speed and quickness and should see some snaps this year but where does that put Darrynton Evans.

With Jimmy Graham no longer on the team Cole Kmet will need to step up as the red zone target for the Bears. Lastly, we break down the full back position with Khari Blasingame and how the offense can use him.
Recapping the headlines of the first week of training camp for the Chicago Bears and breaking down all the wide receivers on this Chicago Bears roster and who could break out as Justin Fields top targets next to Darnell Mooney. Over training camp rookies like Jaquan Brisker and Kyler Gordon show off their impressive skillsets as playmakers. The offensive line has been a mismatch of players with Braxton Jones & Riley Reiff sharing snaps at left tackle for the Bears. We also discuss the rumors from David Kaplan saying that the Chicago Bears don't like Teven Jenkins and how much truth is to that.There has been a lot of speculation on how good these wide receivers are going to be too. So far Velus Jones Jr. has been turning heads along with Equanimeous St. Brown. Will N'Keal Harry find new life in Chicago? Early returns show he has impressive size, speed and blocking ability.
Training camp continues on, and the offense seems to be progressing. Missing out on Lucas Patrick, Cody Whitehair, and not having Riley Reiff and Michael Schofield allowed pressure to be in Justin Field's face all morning but he made the best out of it connecting with Darnell Mooney and other wide receivers.
Brad Beran shares his opinions from what he saw at day 2 of the Chicago Bears Training Camp Practice. The rookies are incredibly impressive like Jaquan Brisker, Dominique Robinson, and Velus Jones Jr. Lucas Patrick walked off the practice field injured. Kyler Gordon continues to play the nickel position and most likely will be the Nickel corner. Teven Jenkins and Thomas Graham Jr were not at training camp.
We recap the first day of training camp practice for the Chicago Bears and what happened during the interviews at Halas Hall. We then go through the 5 position battles that you need to be on the lookout for the Chicago Bears. Robert Quinn, says he wants to stay a Chicago Bear and expressed fear of being traded. ROquan Smith was placed on the PUP and Kyler Gordon was playing in the slot which will throw a wrench into the Thomas Graham Jr and Tavon Young starting slot corner battle.As for position battle Larry Borom and Teven Jenkins will have to show which 2nd year player is deserving of play time. Then the Wide Receiver battle is wide open with Velus Jones Jr, Byron Pringle, N'keal Harry and other wide receivers battling for the most snaps.
The Chicago Bears reported to Training Camp today and there were a few surprises such as the Bears signing offensive tackle Riley Reiff and Robert Quinn has reported to Training Camp but does that still mean that Robert Quinn will be on the Trading Block? Roquan Smith will be at training camp but will not participate until he gets a new deal.

We wrap up the position profiles on defense with the question: did the Chicago Bears get better on defense.

Without Khalil Mack the Chicago Bears edge rushers still played great but does that mean that the incredible production will continue into 2022 under Matt Eberflus?

Now with rookie Kyler Gordon in the starting lineup this groups seems to be on the rise with Thomas Graham Jr. and Tavon Young battling for the starting slot corner spot. Thomas Graham Jr. has been getting the first team snaps but can he keep that up going into next season. Lastly, we discuss how much better this new look defensive back group could be under head coach Matt Eberflus and defensive coordinator Alan Williams and what this cover 2 system means for this team.
Pro Bowl edge rusher Robert Quinn did not attend mandatory OTAs for the Chicago Bears prompting discussions of a possible trade scenario.

We discuss potential suitors such as the Kansas City Chiefs, Cincinnati Bengals, Indianapolis Colts, Arizona Cardinals, Baltimore Ravens, and the Dallas Cowboys and how Robert Quinn could vault their teams into front runners for the Super Bowl.
Updates from the Chicago Bears mandatory OTAs the week of June 13th. The defense is still looking fast and active as Jaquan Brisker is continues to impress and build on the chemistry with Eddie Jackson. Thomas Graham Jr. is fighting for the starting cornerback position away from Tavon Young and won't let it go. Plus, special surprises from Dominique Robinson and Carson Taylor out of Northern Arizona on the edge spots provide much needed depth. All that and Robert Quinn not at mandatory practice, will he be traded or will he be on the roster?On the offensive side of the ball Braxton Jones is starting at left tackle and having reporters like Chris Trapasso calling him the Bears future LT. Although he's learning 2nd year player Teven Jenkins continues to be on the bench and Justin Fields and Darnell Mooney continue to push each other to greatness.Donate to the American Diabetes Association: https://www.diabetes.org/ada/donationmatchVisit the Unbearable Sports Store: https://www.bonfire.com/store/unbearable-sports/

We also break down the biggest complaint about the draft which is “why didn't the Bears draft a wide receiver” and talk about if it was truly the best thing for the new GM to do.
The Chicago Bears tried adding Ryan Bates as their starting right guard and that might've been a sign that Ryan Poles is not convinced that the interior of the line is set yet with Dakota Dozier. We go through the best early round and late round draft prospects at the interior offensive line.
