Khalil Mack’s Cleat Heat is Real and Other Bullets

Chicago Bears

Things have not gone well for the Cubs when we have done the “Outside the Ivy” show on NBC Sports Chicago. So much so, I made a shrine that will hopefully change the team’s mojo when we do the TV thing. No, seriously:

My thought process behind this is simple: It can’t hurt, but it could help. Stranger things have happened.

  • Being a member of the exclusive Madden 99 Club has it perks. And for Khalil Mack, it includes some serious cleat heat:

  • There isn’t much for me to add other than I would do things to get a 99 rating on Madden in order to get some sweet kicks like that in my life. In all honestly, this is probably going to inspire me to buy some new shoes that I have been waiting to get for a while because I’m impressionable and suddenly feel the need to treat myself.
  • I’m compelled to share anytime someone shares a post giving some love while dreaming on Allen Robinson’s upside:

  • And if Mitch Trubisky does MVP-caliber things … watch out:

  • On The Ringer’s Quarterback Commitment Index, you’ll find Trubisky and Jared Goff listed under “Still Posting Happy Instagrams, but Privately Having Doubts.” I don’t vibe with the Bears having “commitment issues” with Trubisky at this stage of the game. He still has three years left of team control, two of which on his rookie deal. I also don’t understand why some are still beating the drum that Trubisky can’t throw left. At this point, the only thing left for Trubisky to do is to show out and ball hard for narratives to change.
  • It might be time to apply a fantasy football name to Tarik Cohen’s position because “running back” just doesn’t cut it:

  • Let’s not sleep on Anthony Miller’s potential, either. JJ Stankevitz (NBC Chicago) dives into the second-year Bears receiver, who opens up on the challenges he faced as a rookie and how he has put aside past issues to position himself for a possible breakout year. Take some time and clear your schedule to read this one.
  • Didn’t happen at a public practice, doesn’t count:

  • On the bright side of the practice ledger, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was removed from the PUP list, was added to the active roster, and returned to practice. Hooray! In his first meeting with the media since the injury, Clinton-Dix explained how the team wanted to be careful and take a slow/steady approach to his return. “We don’t play until September, so we want to just be careful and make sure I was ready to go,” Clinton-Dix said, via the Bears’ official site. “So they gave me a couple more days and I’m just excited to be back out here with those guys.”
  • You’re excited. They’re excited. I’m excited. Clinton-Dix was one of my favorite defenders to watch at Alabama and was a nuisance picking off passes while with the Packers. It will be nice to root for the guy now that he is rocking with the navy blue and orange.
  • Love to see it:



  • More W’s, please:

  • This sounds like a neat opportunity:

  • OH NO! Someone kept the receipts:

  • An old friend could be finding a new job because no one wants to play right guard for the Browns:
