Anybody writing good stuff out there? Well certainly!
- If you’re not a subscriber to the Hoge & Jahns podcast there’s very little I can do for you at this point. It’s the only Bears podcast that doesn’t stink on ice. Also, it’s very good, even if it’s stupidly named. (You’re both called Adam! Roll with it! Adam-2-Adam or AdamsBomb or something!) Their interview with safeties coach Sean Desai is relevant and resonant.
- Dan Kaplan for The Athletic is reporting the NFL is set to allow individual NFL franchises set their own capacities for home games. I’ll repeat what I wrote Monday: I don’t see a scenario where there are fans in NFL stadiums come September. But who knows? Things change with this virus weekly.
- This is a two Bears for one story! HaHa Clinton-Dix used to be a bear. Then he wasn’t a bear. So what happened? THE BEARS ATTACKED!
- ESPN’s Jeff Dickerson with a depressing look at poor QB play in Chicago during the Super Bowl era: “According to ESPN.com’s own Quarterback Index, the Bears rank last in the Super Bowl era in terms of QB production (48.3 out of a 100 point scale). During that time, the Bears have started a total of 50 quarterbacks, per ESPN Stats & Information research, the most of any NFL team in that span.”
- Tarik Cohen is coming off his worst season. He’s entering a contract year. And the NFL is facing financial uncertainty for the foreseeable future. JJ Stankevitz breaks down the situation for NBC Sports Chicago.
