The process leading up to the NFL Draft is way too long. Fans have had nearly every argument in the book on Twitter. Inspired by an article written by our cover32 Raiders page, I decided to look at a few ways that Bears fans can enjoy the draft.

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Cubs 14, Pirates 3: The Chicago Bears won only one game by as big a margin all last season as the Cubs won by here. White Sox 12, Royals 1: Both Chicago teams scored a couple of touchdowns last night. The White Sox just need a better placekicker for the PATs.

The 2017 NFL Draft is just days away, and fans everywhere are anticipating which players their teams will pick. Luckily, the Bears have the third overall pick this year, as well as high picks in nearly every round. Before we get started, make sure to check out my first two Bears mock drafts from earlier in the season.

With the 18th Pick, the Seattle Seahawks Select…

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

Nope, that’s not a typo. I think there is a very good chance the Seahawks will have the 18th pick in this Thursday’s NFL draft, not the 26th. Those of you that are solid draftnicks know this means a trade with the Tennessee Titans. So What miraculous

Quality more important than quantity for Bears in 2017 NFL Draft

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

NFL teams typically wants as many draft picks as possible. The theory: The needier the team, the more picks required for those needs. Not sure that this is the true situation confronting the Bears in 2017, however. In fact, something nearly the opposite, a variation on a less-is-more theme, is truer. For the Bears approaching the 2017 NFL Draft, quality is more important than quantity. “Best available” player is fine, but for a team in major need of true impact difference-makers, a “best-possible” player is paramount. How GM Ryan Pace and his personnel posse accomplish that will be one of the most closely watched and far-reaching dramas of this draft. Because it may require some creativity on

Could Myles Garrett fall to the Bears?

If the Browns and the 49ers were to both pick quarterbacks with the first two picks, then the Bears would end up with the crown jewel of the 2017 NFL Draft: Myles Garrett. Because of that – plus the fact that they also have Pernell McPhee, Willie Young and (for now) Lamarr Houston – edge rusher isn’t a big need for them at the moment.

Alabama's defense figures to resume its dominant ways during the NFL draft. Bedeviled by Deshaun Watson and Clemson in the national championship game loss , the Crimson Tide could have three defenders selected in the first round next week in Philadelphia.

Eddie Macon, first African-American to play for the Bears, dies at 90

Saturday, April 22nd, 2017

Eddie Macon, who in 1952 became the first black player in Chicago Bears history, has died. He was 90. Born in 1927, Macon joined the Army as soon as he turned 18, just as World War II was ending, and was stationed in Japan for seven months. When he returned home he enrolled at the University of the Pacific, where he would recall years later that he was mostly treated well as the school’s first black football player. An exception to that, however, came when the team traveled to face LSU. Macon made the trip thinking he would play in the game, only to find out when he got there that LSU refused to play against a black player. Pacific’s team was also repeatedly refused service at restaurants because
