Sleeping Giants, Bears and Black History, Robinson’s Hands, Contenders With Wentz? And Other Bears Bullets

Chicago Bears

Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent always puts me in a reflective mood. Here’s to being a more mindful me.

•   There are few voices in media circles as polarizing as Colin Cowherd, but I think he’s onto something here:

•   It takes some real flexibility to get to where Cowherd lands, but I can’t shake it. The Bears making the playoffs two of the last three years with that offense and that quarterbacking speaks volumes for … something. Is it the culture? That’s what I imagine Matt Nagy would point at in his defense. Would it be the overall roster building beyond the QB? I’m sure that’s what GM Ryan Pace would underscore. That Chicago’s football team still gets to the cusp of something despite sub-optimal quarterback play says something about the sum of the parts. Maybe the Bears are a sleeping giant until they land a quarterback. Until then, they’re cartoons with animated “Z’s” floating on top of their heads.

•   I mean, if Bart Scott says it…

•   And yet, there seems to be a growing conversation about Carson Wentz’s preference to go to the Colts:

•   This all seems to add up to the Colts gaining leverage in a deal that nets them Wentz. But until that goes down, the saga continues.

•   Gosh, Allen Robinson is good:

•   This should be interesting:

•   Get your popcorn ready:

•   Shot:

•   Chaser:

•   A reminder that nobody’s perfect and that there’s never a bad time to go back to some tape.

•   Something to keep in mind as we ramp up the pre-draft process:

•   I love learning about Bears players from the past:

•   In that same vein, I enjoyed reading from Larry Mayer (ChicagoBears.com) on how Gale Sayers and Willie Galimore being Civil Rights activist during their playing careers.

•   The icon turns 58 today:
