Zach Wilson Threw a Football Over a Rainbow and Other Bears Bullets

Chicago Bears

If you’re wondering how I’m spending my Bears-less Sunday, I’ll be listening to Kanye West’s “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” album. It’s my favorite artist’s best work. And I’ll be playing in loop until further notice.

•   Your obligatory Sunday morning Zach Wilson highlight clip:

•   I don’t care if this throw came against a team that’s only a few years away from playing in what was once called Division I-AA. Just look at the throw, placement, and accuracy. Obviously, it will look more impressive against better competition. But that Wilson can uncork that throw is impressive. So even though not everyone is on the Zach Wilson Hype Train, consider me on board. Who knew watching quarterback play could be fun and not totally exhausting!?

•   Is this good? Because this seems good:

•   Alright, so you want a shot at drafting Wilson in the first round? Cool. Here’s what you need to root for: The Cowboys, Chargers, Texans, or Bengals finishing with the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. The Jets (Trevor Lawrence) and Jaguards (Justin Fields) are virtual locks for the top two picks. So to land that much-desired quarterback, the Bears must be willing to (1) trade up and (2) hope the team with the third pick isn’t a QB-starved franchise. And while I’d rather be rooting for teams to win and help the Bears’ playoff hopes, the reality of the situation is that Chicago needs help at the game’s most important position.

•   Chilling at the bye allows me to explore some of these way-too-early mock drafts with a little more intent. For instance, check out the latest from The Draft Network’s Kyle Crabbs. This three-round mock has the Bears crossing three major needs off their to-do list, which I imagine would please everyone. Because drafting an offensive lineman (Virginia Tech tackle Christian Darrisaw), quarterback (Florida’s Kyle Trask), and receiver (Wake Forest’s Sage Surratt) wouldn’t be the worst-case scenario. And that’s even considering how much more I like Alabama’s Mac Jones over Trask.

•   I mean, this is a baller throw:

•   Put some respect on his name:

•   You can reward Roquan Smith and your favorite Bears by making them Pro Bowlers:

•   Mmhmm, yes, yes, OK, that’s good, mmhmm, … WAIT WHAT THE F?

•   Heads up to the early Black Friday Deals today at Amazon, because it includes 40% of the cold brewer I use. It’s so easy and effective, and today it’s cheap. #ad

•   When I’m done listening to Kanye, I’ll give this a read:

•   This intrigues me:

•   Choose wisely:

•   The Bulls’ road to the playoffs will have its share of obstacles, including Michael Jordan’s new-look Hornets:
