The Bears Will Be Must-See TV in 2019 and Other Bullets

Chicago Bears News

While at my grandmother’s house yesterday, I gave her a birthday card to sign for my dad. But instead of signing her name, she signed his. Oh, grandma. You goofball.

Some shorter bullets for you today, as we otherwise have a lot to get into:

  • The Bears are going to be must-see TV in 2019:

  • FOX will be the network TV home of the Super Bowl in 2020. And judging by this graphic, I’d think that the Chiefs, Bears, Saints, Rams, and Cowboys are the teams that would probably give them bonkers ratings for the game. Based on the ratings decline for Super Bowl LIII, I think the nation is growing weary of seeing the Patriots. Or maybe the country doesn’t want to see football games with a final score of 13-3.
  • I’m still not over how boring that game was throughout. There was no give-and-take, back-and-forth, or pushing to-and-from between the combatants. The drama was as lacking as the points. I like scoring, but I don’t mind a good defensive tussle if both teams are up to it. Maybe that game between the Patriots and Rams will age well as the years go on. But there was too much sloppy play on both sides for me to call that it a defensive clinic.
  • Embrace debate:

  • Winter is coming here:

  • If the PECOTA projections don’t have Trubisky at .330/.450/.530 with 31 homers and 100 ribbies, perhaps checking out these cuts will change their minds:

  • Chicago’s future is in great hands with Trubisky and White Sox stud prospect Eloy Jimenez:

  • Some minor roster-related house-keeping:

  • Trumbetti didn’t get much of an opportunity to show out as a member of the Bears. He signed as an undrafted free agent in May 2018, but was waived with an injury designation in August and spent the year on injured reserve. The Notre Dame product picked up 90 tackles in 43 games playing for the Fighting Irish.
  • Ex-Bears offensive lineman Matt Slauson announced his retirement via Instagram on Wednesday. Slauson had a productive three-year run with the Bears and played well in a short stint with the Colts last year before his season ended with a trip to IR:

  • There are a ton of deals right now on Amazon devices, so if you want a kindle or one of those echo dots (or even a smart home security system), you should pop over to Amazon and check it out.
