Bears Have Top-10 NFL Roster (With a Caveat) Per One Analyst
Bears Insider

You can believe the hype, but I’m of the Marvin Gaye mindset on roster predictions before September. In other words (and I’m paraphrasing) believe half of what you see, son, and none of what you hear. With that in mind, Dallas Robinson of the Pro Football Network analyzed all 32 NFL teams, and per his calculations, the Bears have the seventh-best roster in the league. Before you get too giddy, Robinson ranks Chicago No. 15 in his current power rankings. What’s the caveat? The roster ranking eliminates each team’s quarterback from the equation. So, take it all with a grain of salt. Robinson say ..read more

Projecting Bears’ Season After Schedule Release
Bears Insider

1w ago
The NFL officially released its schedule on Wednesday, and for Bears fans, there are a few oddities, for lack of a better word. The Bears will open their season against three straight AFC opponents (the Titans, Texans, and Colts) for the first time in 25 years. Chicago won’t play their first NFC North opponent until their 10th game of the season when they host the Packers on Nov. 17. It’s the longest in franchise history they’ve waited to see their first division opponent. The Bears will play their season finale against the Packers for the second straight year. Believe it or not, it’s the fir ..read more

A New Wrinkle to This Year’s Bears’ Schedule
Bears Insider

What if I told you that the Bears won’t play an NFC North opponent until Week 11, forcing them into intra-divisional games in six of the season’s final eight weeks? The second half of the season will feel like every game is a postseason tilt. Stock up on your preferred brand of antacids. At least the video release is a warm and wonderful tribute to filmmaker John Hughes. Anthony “Spice” Adams is wonderful as the school principal, but Matt Eberflus could use some acting lessons. Jake Johnson provides the narration. The season moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while ..read more

The Bears signed fourth-round draft choice Tory Taylor to a four-year deal on Saturday, the team announced. Tory Taylor: Man, I’m a Chicago Bear pic.twitter.com/Nqj7WXi765 — Sadeek (@SadeekNextWave) May 11, 2024 Taylor, who starred for the Iowa Hawkeyes, is the third-earliest punter taken in Bears common draft history. The Bears selected Chris Gardocki in the third round in 1991. They also chose Todd Sauerbrun in the second round back in 1995. Both were All-Pros, with Gardocki winning a Super Bowl and Sauerbrun going to multiple Pro Bowls. None of those accolades came while with the Bears ..read more

Rome Odunze-Caleb Williams Connection Drawing Rave Reviews from Bears Coaches and Teammates
Bears Insider
by Michael Canter
2w ago
If any other team drafted Rome Odunze, he’d be THE story of minicamp in that city. But the Bears drafted Caleb Williams first, so Odunze is essentially pick 1B, and he avoids the hype that Williams and other top-10 selections are getting this spring. Odunze was asked Friday if that takes some pressure off him. “I wouldn’t say [it’s] easier,” Odunze said. “We’re both coming in as rookies trying to do our best to get involved with the culture [of] this organization and be the best teammates possible that we can be. I think [Williams is] doing that tremendously, and I’m trying my best at it, as w ..read more

Chicago Bears Bold Prediction Time
Bears Insider
by Michael Canter
2w ago
“Hope springs is eternal” is an often-used axiom when MLB players convene for spring training each new season. The Bears can certainly apply that turn of phrase now that Caleb Williams has been named the team’s No. 1 quarterback. Williams represents a new hope of sorts. Chicago has an alleged quarterback curse, and the rookie is expected to break that. However, there is a lot more to the 2024-25 Bears than just Williams. Chicago finished 7-10 last season, including four losses decided by a touchdown or less. The Panthers finished with the NFL’s worst record, giving the Bears the No. 1 pick in ..read more

Bears Name Caleb Williams QB1
Bears Insider

Surprise! Not really. Caleb Williams named Bears starter. Of course. Seems obvious. But 3 years ago Justin Fields sat and watched Andy Dalton (!) get the first team reps. Different era. Different player. I believe there will be much different results. pic.twitter.com/dfMfnZSGFL — Kyle Brandt (@KyleBrandt) May 10, 2024 “No conversation,” head coach Matt Eberflus said ahead of the Bears’ rookie minicamp. “He’s the starter.” Expect pushback by the Justin Fields fans who have now switched their allegiance to Tyson Bagent. Everyone else has known Caleb Williams would be QB1 since before Fields wa ..read more

Metrics Show Playoff Expectations for Bears with Caleb Williams Are Realistic
Bears Insider

The draft is over, and the Bears have their quarterback of the future. The Bears selected Caleb Williams first overall. He’s already begun to acclimate himself to the Bears and the NFL, and he’s taking in Chicago’s best. Of course, he bonded with fellow first-rounder Rome Odunze, but he’s also spending time with Keenan Allen, DJ Moore, Cole Kmet, and other teammates. Williams is getting standing ovations everywhere he goes in Chicago, and the pressure seems high. Justin Fields has departed after three losing seasons, and the fans are ready for the Bears to be a winning franchise again. That me ..read more

NFL Schedule Release Sneak Peak: What’s in Store for the Bears?
Bears Insider

With the NFL Draft officially in the books, there’s just one big event left on the NFL’s offseason calendar – its schedule release. The only problem with this year’s event is that no one knows when the schedule will drop. Colts owner Jim Irsay wants fans to start preparing. I smell a 2024 SCHEDULE coming out soon… — Jim Irsay (@JimIrsay) May 7, 2024 The schedule usually comes out the second Thursday in May, but because that occurs in two days, it’s more likely we’ll see the NFL make an announcement next week. May 15 or 16 probably makes the most sense. Let’s look at what is known about ..read more
