Bears prepare for Eagles

Wentz enters his first NFL road game

It looked like old times as the Chicago Bears got off to a rough start last week against the Houston Texans who forced five sacks on quarterback Jay Cutler in the 23-14 loss.

bears-4Cutler finished the game 16-29 for 216 yards, a touchdown and an interception while his rookie counterpart finished 22 -35 for 231 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

The Bears must now get ready to face Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles but Bears rookie Deiondre Hall may have inside information about how to try and stop Wentz, who threw for 278 yards and two touchdowns in a 29-10 over the Browns last weekend. Hall played against Wentz while at Northern Iowa.

“Dude has a cannon,” Hall said.  “He has a cannon for an arm. And he was always a really smart quarterback. He reads defenses very well from my experiences against him. Plus, he’s not afraid to run if he gets in trouble.”

” He was making NFL-type passes in college, throwing from the far hash to the opposite sideline on a comebacker. And he’s got enough zip on it by far. It’s crazy.”

It all goes down Monday night and you still have the opportunity to be there so grab your tickets and help cheer on your Chicago Bears over the Philadelphia Eagles!

Franchise interviews for GM position

Just weeks after the firing of GM Phil Emery and Head Coach Marc Trestman after a 5-11 season, the Chicago Bears have made contact with the New Orleans Saint’s Director of Player Personnel, Ryan Pace about the now vacant GM job in the Windy City.  Pace brought high level recommendations with him.

“I’d hate to lose him and yet, he’s ready for a general manager’s job,” Saints GM Mickey Loomis said of Pace at an end-of-season press conference Tuesday. “He’s talented. I would expect to lose him at some point.”

Pace is one of a very crowded field vying for the job Chris Ballard (KC Chiefs Director of Player Personnel), Brian Gain (Texans Director of Player Personnel) and Lake Dawson, the Titans VP of Player Personnel.
