Episode 26: Week 3 Preview vs. Seahawks — It’s Jimmy Clausen Time!

Listen on iTunes or stream here:

QB Jay Cutler is out at least two weeks with a hamstring injury, so that means, unfortunately, it’s Jimmy Clausen time.

Jordan and I discuss the merits of both Clausen and third-stringer David Fales. We also talk about the recent performances of players like RB Jeremy Langford, CB Kyle Fuller and OLB Pernell McPhee. Oh, and the fact that the Seahawks are 16-point favorite in this week’s game.

Our guest for Episode 26 is repeat visitor and friend of the show, James Neveau. James writes about the Bears (and other Chicago sports) for NBC Chicago. You can find all of his work here. You can also follow him on Twitter.

James and I debate whether or not turning to Clausen is the right move, both for the short term and long term, and if there are any viable free agent options available. Kyle Orton? Rex Grossman?!?!

Episode 19: Bears Announce New GM; Who Will Be the Head Coach?

The Bears’ new general manager, Ryan Pace, was introduced at a press conference on Friday morning, and Jordan and I discuss the hire, as well as the candidates to fill the head coaching vacancy.

Pace, 37, becomes the youngest GM in the NFL. The hire is a bit of a surprise to some, who thought Chris Ballard might be the top candidate to fill the role.

Jordan and I talk about Pace’s time in New Orleans and speculate on what his relationship could be like with Ted Phillips and Jay Cutler.

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.
