The Bears Are Wearing Some Dope Throwbacks and Other Bullets

Chicago Bears

I never understood the love Boba Fett received from Star Wars fans. From a certain point of view, he kinda went out like a punk in Return of the Jedi, so to hear there won’t be a spin-off here puts my mind at ease here on an important Sunday morning.

  • It’s a one-time only deal, but the Chicago Bears are rockin’ some throwbacks:

  • These particular throwbacks are the most popular alternate Bears jerseys. At least, that’s what I’ve gathered in my conversations with you fine folks. Between the over-sized bold numbers and a strong shade of navy blue, I can see why. This isn’t to say I’m not partial to the orange fits, but if the Bears were to have a steady alternate jersey, these might be the best option.
  • Who doesn’t love surprises? Especially when they are in the form of throwback jerseys:

  • Maybe it’s kind of hokey, but I don’t care. It’s pretty neat that Matt Nagy and the Bears set it up so everyone could get a throwback with their favorite Bears player. It’s a nice personal touch at a time where it’s easy to not think of that small attention to detail. Hopefully, the 2018 Bears can conjure up the spirits of those who rocked the uniforms before them and pick up an important win against the Jets.
  • Throwback jerseys and hype videos, that’s what Sunday mornings are all about:

  • Maybe a little throwback magic is all Leonard Floyd needs to get going in 2018.
  • Patrick Finley of the Sun-Times wonders if it’s time for the Bears to worry about the 2016 first-round pick. We are now six games into the NFL season and Floyd has no sacks and just one quarterback hit. Anyone who has watched Floyd since his rookie season knew about his troubling trend to get off to a slow start, but this is looks and feels different. Floyd hasn’t been the impact pass-rusher he was expected to be. And while there were times earlier in the season where he was making plays as a pass-defender and run-stopper, Floyd looked to take a step back against the Patriots. Then again, a change in narrative is only one sack away.
  • Another first-round pick might have a battle on his hands for playing time today. Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune writes about the potential fight for playing time between Josh Bellamy and Kevin White, both of whom stand to get extra attention because Allen Robinson isn’t expected to play because of a groin injury. White has prospect pedigree and a high ceiling, but Bellamy is more experienced and versatile.
  • Kay Adams is riding the hot hand and sticking with Mitch Trubisky as her Bears fantasy pick to click:

  • Perhaps it’s just a matter of time before Trubisky welcomes back an old friend in tight end Adam Shaheen, who can begin practicing after this week comes to an end:

  • QB1 absolutely nailed the look here:

  • I didn’t get a chance to bid, but I would’ve been a few bucks shy of making the winning bid anyway:
