Chicago Bears Fans Unite Under #FireFox Anthem

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

by Wanda Wiedman / @WandaW63

In early October as the football season was in full swing.  There was an outcry from fans to bench quarterback Mike Glennon and start rookie Mitch Trubisky. Hoping that it was just a QB issue, Bears fans were ecstatic when the rookie was started and the organization could start winning games. Even though the Bears won two in a row, it was due to the defense and not the quarterback change.

This led bearsbarroom.com to believe that the crux of the Bears losing display was solely on head coach John Fox. They were hoping that by October 30th, their cries and demands would be heard and he would be gone.

Eagles Soar To #1

Official Eagles Reporter

By Roxaann Herrera // @roxaaneh

FINAL: Eagles – 34   Redskins – 24

And then there was one. NUMBER ONE BABY!!

Okay, enough with the gloating. In all seriousness, I laid in bed well past my bedtime after Monday night’s win just thinking about how far my Philadelphia Eagles have come, not only since I’ve been a fan (wayyy back in 2003), but all throughout the organization’s history.

What separates this season from previous winning seasons, in my humble opinion, is that these wins have been so rightfully earned. We have fought from behind, scrapped against and adjusted according to each opponent.  In Carson Wentz, the Eagles have an exceptional quarterback who has only improved game in and game out with his mechanics, proving his agility and athleticism. He has taken some risks plus some wicked hits in result of those risks but most importantly, has learned from them. He makes this team so special.

The Bears Hot Mess Starts at the Top

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman / @WandaW63

From 2004-2012, Lovie Smith was the head coach of the Chicago Bears. His first three goals were to beat the Green Bay Packers, win the NFC North, and win a Super Bowl. He achieved two of the three goals.

During his first season with the Bears, he installed a new offense and defense but had bouts of injuries and a season-ending injury to quarterback Rex Grossman. His first season record was 5-11. However, since he was a defensive-minded coach, the defense improved from 22nd overall in 2003 to 13th in 2004. By 2005 the Bears started then back-up QB Kyle Orton with a dominant defense and ended with an 11-5 record, despite starting the season with a 1-3 record. Look familiar?

Enter the John Fox era. Fox accepted a four-year deal as head coach of the Bears in 2015. It was predicted that the Bears would have a 3-13 record, but in his first season they ended with a 6-10 record. So instead, the Bears used the predicted previous record for the 2016 season, finishing 3-13. A regression that many hung on the excuse of a team rebuilding.

It is now 2017, and the Bears have started the season at 1-3, losing in epic fashion to the Packers once again, in the prime light of Thursday Night Football. The coaching was geared to quarterback Mike Glennon’s strengths, which is the opposite of his scouting report. According to general manager Ryan Pace: “He has the height, arm strength, the ability to quickly process.” Yes, he has height, but it gives no advantage to his field of view when he sees only what plays are given to him for the short routes. Time and time again, film shows Glennon waiting for a particular player and not the open receiver.

Third & Short: Week 4 Fantasy Takes

Our Turf Football Senior Editor
Official Chicago Bears Reporter

by Wanda Wiedman & Cleveland Kate // @WandaW63  & @ClvlndK8

While the NFL shook up the world with its #TakeAKnee, we have survived week 3 with quite a few upsets but managed to stay true to our picks.

Last week Kate suggested that sitting the Pittsburgh Steelers defense against the Chicago Bears offense would be ideal and boy, was she right! But if you took heed to our suggestions when we said to start Chris Thompson and sit  Jeremy Maclin.…you’re welcome.

So let’s get started with this week’s fantasy Starts!
