Chicago Bears looking for continuity and the future in season opener.


Sep 9, 2021

With the Chicago Bears starting off the season with Andy Dalton as QB1, it has become clear Chitown fans would rather see Justin Fields under Center to start the 2021 campaign.

Hopefully with all the veteran experience Dalton has, Justin Fields will be able to observe from the sidelines and see how much faster the NFL is compared to the NCAA once the live bullets are firing. The battle for the starting spot during practice and preseason has really made it a hard choice for Matt Nagy. Fields has played well in the preseason and veterans from around the league can tell he is ready to start and lead the Bears but, Matt Nagy does not think that it's his time just yet. The next big question for the Bears is the O-Line. Rookie LT Tevin Jenkins has been lost for the season which has caused the Bears to move players around.

After shuffling players in and out of the lineup, the Bears offensive line is finally beginning to develop some stability at a very opportune time.

The tide began to turn Aug. 28 when left tackle Jason Peters began his first full week of workouts, right tackle Germain Ifedi practiced for the first time in training camp and right guard James Daniels continued to ramp up after missing the first two preseason games.

Since then, the entire starting unit has worked together—with Peters, Ifedi and Daniels joining left guard Cody Whitehair and center Sam Mustipher.

The current version of the "Monsters of the Midway" (Mack, Hicks, Trevathan, Roquan Smith, Jaylon Johnson, and Eddie Jackson) should be a Top 5 defense. This season looks very different and exciting for the Bears fans having a Elite defense and the true promise of a franchise QB. Sunday begins the 17 game race for extra games in January and the Rams are on deck! A good football team that also has a top 5 defense with All-pro's Jalen Ramsey, Aaron Donald, and Jordan Fuller leading the charge. This could prove be a tough night for the Bears offense but, this game will be won in the trenches and be a measuring stick to how the Bears rate against teams that are perceived to be playoff ready. Sunday night Chitown nation will see the chemistry within the Bears and how they hold each other up, and always stay together.

It's time to BEARDOWN!!!!
