Olin Kreutz Has Some Advice on Dealing With the Cold (And Other Bears Bullets)

Chicago Bears

Yes, Bleacher Nation was acquired by Betsperts. No, I’m not going anywhere. And neither is BN Bears. Or BN Bulls or Blackhawks, for that matter. Frankly, I don’t expect the editorial stuff around here to change much (if at all) either. If anything, it’ll change for the better with the behind-the-scenes upgrades that we’ll all benefit from as we go through this endeavor.

What is most important for me is that we’re going to keep going through this Bears rebuild together. That won’t change at all. And I’m thankful for that. Just as I am thankful for your readership, interactions, and companionship over the years. We’ve been through a lot since we launched The Ten-Yard Line in January 2017. Which means we’re just about ready for anything. Giddy up!

  • There are few people as qualified to give advice about playing in the cold at Soldier Field as Olin Kreutz. So these are some wise words from the long-time Bears offensive line great:
  • If anyone needs me, I’ll be furiously re-typing these tidbits into the NOTES app on my phone just in case I want to enjoy the rest of you sickos at Soldier Field tomorrow.
  • Kudos to the Bears for taking these conditions into consideration when dropping this news release:
  • Let it be known the Bears aren’t the only ones dealing with these frigid conditions:
  • One way to stay warm (if you’re thinking offense) is to get your offensive line moving downhill and charging through with a run game. Good thing Khalil Herbert is set to rejoin the lineup. (Sun-Times)
  • Let’s remember that Herbert was averaging 6.0 yards per carry and was on pace for a 1,093-yard season on the ground in a year in which he wasn’t the primary starter. Pretty remarkable stuff from “RB2” if you consider all of the factors surrounding this Bears offense. Teaming him with David Montgomery (who’s running at a pace to gain 908 rushing yards per 17 games) and Justin Fields (who already reached the 1,000-yard milestone) makes for a three-headed rushing monster that is tough to tackle (literally and figuratively speaking).
  • If the Bears are looking to draft a running back this offseason, Illinois’ Chase Brown is one who comes highly recommended:
  • One player who should know a thing or two about playing in this type of weather is Arlington Heights native and Notre Dame product Cole Kmet, who was Mic’d Up for last week’s Bears-Eagles game:
  • Oof. The Bills have allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points to tight ends this year. They haven’t allowed a tight end touchdown all year. And no tight end has been able to match the 8-catch, 108-yard day Travis Kelce had for the Chiefs in Week 6 against the Bills.
  • Linebacker Nicholas Morrow is wild for this:
  • DeMar DeRozan is a real one:
  • Bite hard for Bedard?
  • With newcomers Dansby Swanson, Cody Bellinger, and Tucker Barnhart joining Nico Hoerner and Yan Gomes, I think I can make a case for the Cubs having the best up-the-middle defense in the division. And maybe the entire National League:
