In this week’s episode, Jordan and I break down the Bears’ disappointing loss to the Dolphins, discuss a number of off-the-field issues and preview this weekend’s game against the Patriots.
I also rant about a few things: why it makes no sense that changing Soldier Field from sod to turf would improve the Bears’ performance, and why both Jerry Angelo and Brian Urlacher need to stop talking.
If you have a suggestion for a guest you’d like to hear on the show, or if you’d like to ask a Bears question and have it answered on the podcast, reach out to us via Twitter.
• How the Chicago Tribune’s Dan Pompei has perfectly summed up the Bears’ season so far
• How “Bad Jay” came out to play vs. the Dolphins
• Why the Bears’ defense shouldn’t escape blame in the Dolphins’ loss
• How Matt Forte, Roberto Garza and Kyle Long were among the bright spots vs. the Dolphins
• Why it makes no sense that replacing the sod at Soldier Field would improve the Bears’ performance at home
• Why Brandon Marshall has a right to be upset with the Bears’ performance
• Why is Jerry Angelo still talking to the media? And why is Brian Urlacher criticizing former teammates like Jay Cuter?
• Why does the Bears’ defense vs. Tom Brady look like without an injured Kyle Fuller?
• Why little known Patriots DT Casey Walker vs. Robert Garza could be the matchup to watch this weekend
• With the Patriots missing LB Jerod Mayo, is this a week for the Bears’ to establish Matt Forte on the ground early and often
• Can Jay Cutler exploit Brandon Marshall and/or Alshon Jeffery vs. Darrelle Revis?
• Why Patriots WR Brandon LaFell could spell trouble
• Why the Patriots RB Shane Vereen and TE Rob Gronkowski could spell trouble, too
