The Chicago Bears are known as one of the more conservative franchises in football. If not, all of professional sports.
For instance, they aren’t one to put out a ton of behind-the-scenes content. Secondly, the Bears aren’t ones to push a bunch of viral and re-sharable stuff. Thirdly, we know they aren’t the type to open their doors for HBO’s Hard Knocks. So, it’s not as if any of this is new to us. It’s just that Bears fans are starving for content. And because their social media video sharing policies are archaic, at best, there hasn’t been much to share to this point.
But if the first episode of this season’s 1920 Football Drive is any indication, you’ll be glued to your screens and monitors just as I was last night:
There was plenty of good stuff in this first episode. From looks inside the Bears’ NFL Draft weekend war room, perspective from scouts on the trail, interview snippets with draft-picks-to-be, mic’d up coaches at rookie minicamp, and moments of joy shared between Head Coach Matt Nagy and GM Ryan Pace. I can confidently say I’ve never seen anything like this from the Bears.
And I’m not sure anything beats this moment:

Justin Fields already has disdain for the Packers and he hasn’t even signed his rookie deal yet. One of us! One of us! One of us!
