There is something about a good Nashville Hot Chicken sandwich that hits your stomach (well, my stomach) right in the sweet spot. And if I don’t have to travel all the way to Nashville to get it, I’m all for it. My friend Jim (whose chili recipe is an all-time favorite in my household) cooked up another hit with a Nashville Hot Chicken sandwich recipe. This one looks like a winner. Now, to set up the Air Fryer I purchased in July to make it happen.
And in case you’re curious, the Bears are slated to play the Titans in Nashville next year. So get your bellies ready for a good time.
- If it were me, I would have suggested scoring touchdowns. But Mitch Trubisky has other ideas when it comes to fixing the offense:

- My pops has a saying that resonates with me to this day: “Work smarter, not harder.” So while I understand the idea behind playing fast, the Bears offense needs to prioritize being in control. Trubisky and the offense don’t need speed, they need control. If this group operates with control, then playing fast will come naturally. As soon as the Bears stop thinking about being fast, they’ll be fast. That’s usually how this thing goes.
- Bears QBs Coach Dave Ragone isn’t worried about Trubisky’s confidence being shaken after a rough season debut. In fact, here is his idea on how to get Trubisky back on track: “Look at the good plays that happened and make sure we continue to work on those things because we want to continue to build on them. The things that weren’t good, [determine] why, and then work on those in practice so those don’t happen again. That’s the best way, in my opinion, to continue to go through the process with him.” That’s a noble idea. Executing it could be fun..
- Trubisky might not want to talk about what happened in Week 1 with reporters, but he better be discussing what went wrong with his coaches, fix it, and make sure he doesn’t repeat the same mistake twice.
- The only coach who knows Trubisky better than Matt Nagy is his position coach, who was the lone holdover from John Fox’s staff. Ragone has seen Trubisky at his lowest, so I suppose there is a glimmer of hope that the continuity the two have helps QB1 take a step forward starting in Week 2.
- There is a case to be made that we’re overreacting about the Bears’ offensive performance in a woeful Week 1. JJ Stankevitz (NBC Sports Chicago) offers up the things that can (and will!) be fixed for Week 2. Football is a game of constant adjustments. Teams are always scouting your strengths and looking to turn them into weaknesses. The ones who have a counter-punch succeed, but those who don’t stumble down the hill. There wasn’t much to hang your hat on if you were rooting for Chicago’s offense to score points last week. But if you think back to last year, you might remember how the Bears did a good job in fixing things on a week-to-week basis. If that trend continues, then this could be the team that can score a touchdown and steal a road win.

- Bo Jackson in a Bears uniform? Pretty dope:
I assumed this was Walter Payton, but turns out someone put Bo Jackson in a No. 34 Bears jersey. That ain’t right. https://t.co/P3FJtlvzXQ

- Bo Jackson wearing Walter Payton’s No. 34? Now, that’s just not right.

- I feel as if every team has an impressive offensive highlight in the package above (except for the Bears, because of course).
- Is now the time to trade for David Montgomery in your fantasy league? NFL.com fantasy writer Jason B. Hirschhorn believes so. If Nagy shows more of a commitment to balance and Montgomery gets a growing snap share, your buy-low strategy could result in some big gains down the line.

- This is a mood:
- A Dax Raymond update:

- Seriously, though:
Being a Jets fan sounds like the most exhausting experience known to man. And I root for Mitchell Trubisky every week.
