Last Thoughts on Glennon
Many have spent countless Twitter hours arguing I am wrong to be rooting against Mike Glennon. I am not rooting against Mike Glennon. I hope he wins every start of his Chicago Bears career. I simply believe Mitch Trubisky – even right this very second – gives the Bears the best chance to win football games.
And the Bears should be all-in on winning football games in 2017. They have a good defense, great running attack and solid specials. If they get production from their passing attack they are going to have an opportunity to play in the postseason.
With Glennon, offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains needs to be perfect. Because if the play breaks down, the play is dead. With Trubisky, the play breaking down is simply an opportunity for a great talent to showcase his ability.
I’m just hoping the Glennon-led Bears don’t put the 2017 team in too big of a hole.

Long Snapper For Long Snapper
I’m told #Bears are expected to sign long snapper Jeff Overbaugh after a tryout at Halas Hall this morning.

Meredith Injury Means Pressure on White
Cam Meredith, my thought to be the Bears breakout player of 2017, was injured in a practice game. But thank God he got the reps, right preseason lovers? No, the preseason is not just a way for owners to rip off a gullible fan base. It’s really, really, super duper important. What does the injury mean moving forward? From Adam Hoge of WGN:
For one, White needs to emerge — immediately. Sunday’s performance was a decent first step, as the third-year wide receiver with just four regular season starts caught two passes for 30 yards, including a 19-yard strike downfield from Glennon. But later in the game, White failed to come down with a high throw from Mitch Trubisky that still hit his hands.
“Myself and the rest of the receivers, I feel like we need to step it up and take some of that load,” White said.
Throughout training camp and the preseason, Glennon has appeared to favor Meredith over White, but now he doesn’t have a choice.
“He’s another guy, with Cam down now, that I think will continue to grow and be that guy in our offense,” Glennon said about White after the game.
- Really enjoy Dan Wiederer’s writing, especially when it’s longer profiles. His work on David Kaplan here is really a terrific read. I’ve heard some great things about Kap from my Chicago media friends.
