Four players Ryan Pace should target to fix the Bears

Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

The Chicago Bears have a 1 percent chance to make the playoffs in 2019 after falling to 4-6 following Sunday night's 17-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. As a result, it's time to start looking ahead to 2020 and the necessary moves GM Ryan Pace must make in order to take advantage of the Bears' already championship-worthy defense. Pace will face some obvious challenges in the offseason, most notably the salary cap where the Bears won't have much flexibility.

Bears waive James Vaughters

Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

James Vaughters should be used to this by now. According to the NFL's transactions wire, the Bears cut Vaughters off the 53-player roster Tuesday in what seems like a weekly move. If form holds, the Bears will re-sign him to the practice squad Wednesday (if he clears waivers) and then re-sign him to the active roster later in the week.

Seven Bears playing for their jobs over the final six games of 2019

Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

So we'll highlight seven other players here whose final six games will have a significant impact on the Bears' plans this offseason: WR Allen Robinson The Bears could save $13 million against 2020's cap if they were to cut Robinson before the third and final year of his contract, but he's been the team's best receiver and is a guy they love having around Halas Hall. More likely at stake for Robinson is a contract extension, which could lower his 2020 cap number - giving the Bears some flexibility - while keeping the 26-year-old in Chicago for the long term.

Alex Brown: ‘There are some clowns on this team and I don’t like it’

Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

On the Football Aftershow following the Bears Week 11 loss to the Los Angeles Rams, Alex Brown called out the Bears players for clowning around. You can watch the clip from the show here. "We got to figure out who loves football because the ship will turn back again and the guys that really love football, those are the only guys you really want on the team," Brown said.

What went wrong? The unmaking of Bears QB Mitch Trubisky

Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

The Mitch Trubisky that stood on the sideline late Sunday during the loss to the Los Angeles Rams and the one that stood downcast before microphones afterwards was not the Mitch Trubisky that teammates on the Bears defense once affectionately nicknamed, "Pretty Boy Assassin" for his swagger. It was not the same Mitch Trubisky who sat in front of his locker as a rookie and talked with this writer, before Trubisky's first Bears-Packers meeting, about great Ohio football rivalries, like that of his Mentor High School with St. Ignatius or the classic of mighty Massillon with Canton McKinley. What has brought about the unmaking of Mitch Trubisky?

Bears’ Nagy passes on giving up play-calling chores

Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy will take a hard pass on surrendering play-calling duties. Nagy and the Bears are mired in a slump of growing proportion and significance, and the chorus is growing louder for a shift -- either at quarterback or play-caller. Nagy called plays for the Kansas City Chiefs, a role head coach Andy Reid surrendered, before being selected as coach of the Bears.

2020 NFL Draft: Where do the Bears pick entering Week 12?

Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

After Chicago's loss to the Rams and Oakland's victory over the Bengals, those two second-rounders are currently the 46th and 51st picks overall. To put that in perspective, last year's 46th pick was cornerback Greedy Williams (Browns) and the 51st pick was wide receiver A.J. Brown (Titans). Both are promising players who will be starters in the NFL for a long time.

Power Rankings Roundup: Everyone’s just as confused about the Mitch Trubisky injury as you are

Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

Was Mitch Trubisky injured? The Bears' losses have gotten weirder and weirder as the season's gone on. Mitchell Trubisky exited Sunday night's loss to the Rams with a hip injury, but you can forgive the general public for wondering if Bears coach Matt Nagy was looking for a way out.

McVay, Rams comfortable changing up offensive approach

Monday, November 18th, 2019

Even Sean McVay had to recognize that the Los Angeles Rams didn't really look like a McVay-coached team during their 17-7 victory over the Chicago Bears. It was the first time in his three seasons in charge that the Rams won a game without scoring at least 20 points, and McVay traded in his usual wide-open approach for 31 designed runs on 50 plays. It was a little bit different than typically what we are accustomed to seeing, but a win is a win.
