After a brief hiatus, Jordan and I are back to discuss a long list of topics:

Episode 28: Week 5 Preview vs. Chiefs — Is Anyone Not Injured?

Listen on iTunes or stream here:

The Bears are coming off their first win of the season — thank you Robbie Gould! — but making it two in a row might be an uphill climb in Kansas City this weekend.

Jordan and I discuss all of the good and the bad from the win over the Raiders, including Pernell McPhee‘s dominance and the surprisingly solid performance of the Bears’ defensive secondary vs. Amari Cooper.

We also tackle this week’s lengthy injury report, which is seemingly affecting every position on the field — especially wide receiver and the offensive line. Among those unlikely to play are Antrel Rolle and, for a fourth straight game, Alshon Jeffery.

The Chiefs, only 1-3 this season, are nine-point favorites. Let’s hope the Bears can prove Vegas wrong.

Episode 27: Week 4 Preview vs. Raiders — Goodbye, Jared and Jon

Listen on iTunes or stream here:

It’s been a busy week for the Bears following the embarrassing 26-0 loss to the Seahawks.

At least the offense and special teams embarrassing. The defense, led by Pernell McPhee, put forth a respectable performance, allowing just one first down before Seattle’s final drive of the first half.

Since then, the Bears traded both Jared Allen and Jon Bostic and released Brock Vereen. They also brought in another punter after Pat O’Donnell wore out his leg punting on EVERY SINGLE DRIVE against the Seahawks.

Joining the podcast as a guest host this week, to discuss all these topics and more (like why the Bears shouldn’t be afraid to trade Alshon Jeffery), is the The Bear Jew. He’s the man behind the Twitter handle @ChicagoBearJew and never minces words. You can follow him here.

We also discuss the awfulness of Jimmy Clausen, Kyle Fuller‘s woes and what The Bear Jew will be keeping his eyes open for in Sunday’s game against the Raiders.

Fantasy Football: Alshon Jeffery vs Brandon Marshall

As a Bears’ fan, it doesn’t really matter who has the better season, but let’s take a look at who will have a greater Fantasy Football impact in 2014.

In 2013, both Marshall and Jeffery put up some of the biggest WR numbers in the NFL and both made the Pro Bowl.

Alshon Jeffery Brandon Marshall

Alshon Jeffery had 89 receptions for 1421 yards and 7 touchdowns. He also rushed for another 105 yards.

Brandon Marshall had 100 receptions for 1295 and 12 touchdowns.

2013, was the 4th year that Brandon Marshall has had 100+ receptions with Jay Cutler as his quarterback.

Cutler threw 8 touchdowns to Brandon Marshall, while Josh McCown threw 4 touchdowns to Marshall.

Cutler only threw 3 touchdowns to Jeffery, compared to the 4 touchdowns from McCown.

So who will have the better fantasy football season? It’s close, but the edge this year goes to Brandon Marshall.
