Replacing Hicks, Cam Wants Chase, Comfort With Trubisky, and Other Bears Bullets

Chicago Bears

I traveled to Springfield for a surprise birthday party for one of my closest friends, and ended up bumping into an old college roommate I hadn’t seen in a loooooooong time. Small world.

  • Replacing Akiem Hicks isn’t going to be easy, but Roy Robertson-Harris is up to the task:

  • Robertson-Harris had a breakout 2018 season in which he set personal highs in defensive snaps, sacks (3), tackles (22), and quarterback hits (11). RRH is well on his way toward surpassing his production from last year with 2.5 sacks, 13 tackles, 3 tackles-for-loss, and five quarterback hits in his first five games of the 2019 season. Or in other words, he is on a 16-game pace with 8 sacks, 35 tackles, 10 tackles-for-loss, and 16 quarterback hits. So while the Bears will miss Hicks in the lineup, at least they are in a position to have their depth pick of the slack.
  • Also, a tip of the cap to Bears Twitter for offering up a reminder that the Bears always place defensive lineman Bilal Nichols as a limited participant on the injury report when they work inside on the turf. There must be something about the indoor turf that doesn’t mesh well with Nichols’ knee, which forces him to practice with limitations. With that being said, expect him to start on Sunday.

  • If I was a star NFL pass-rusher, I would want the jersey of every quarterback I signed hanging up in a guest room or somewhere it can be displayed. Bonus points for every jersey that was autographed!
  • But unless Mitch Trubisky comes down with another injury, Jordan won’t get that opportunity because all signs are pointing to No. 10 being QB1 on Sunday.
  • Bears Head Coach Matt Nagy was non-committal…

  • … but I feel as if Trubisky starting on Sunday is in the cards:

  • Video game graphics have come a long way since the first time I played Madden back in 1995:

  • I’m gathering all my rowdy friends for Monday Night Football, but mostly to check out the final trailer for the new Star Wars movie:
