Give Roschon Some Recs, Fields is Fast, Go DJ, O-Line FAs, and Other Bears Bullets

Chicago Bears

Not only is this the last Friday of the month, it is the Friday before a long weekend.

Please enjoy responsibly. I want to see your faces when we re-convene on Monday.

  • You know what to do, Bears fans:

  • If Bears rookie running back Roschon Johnson finds his way to this post, here are my recommendations: La Scarola for Italian, Mima’s Taste of Cuba for Cuban grub, an Italian beef from Al’s on Taylor Street (bring cash!), tacos from Taqueria La Zacateana (on Tuesdays, they do hand-made tortillas from scratch), and a stop at Amy’s Candy Bar in Lincoln Square. Also, if you’ve got a sunny Friday with decent weather and the Cubs happen to be in town, go spend an afternoon at Wrigley Field. Thank me later.
  • This is the type of tweet that provides perspective as to why the DJ Moore acquisition was so important for Justin Fields’ development:

  • Mike Williams’ mere presence on the football field makes Justin Herbert that much better. It’s almost as if having a legit WR1 matters.
  • Speaking of Fields, we knew he was FAST. But quantifying it this way blows my mind:

  • I’d request a Pro Bowl event where Tyreek Hill and Justin Fields have a footrace to see who can build up the fastest speed, but the Pro Bowl is reserved for players whose teams don’t make the Super Bowl. And the only “Bowl” game I want Fields playing in is the Super Bowl.
  • In a world where the Bears still need pass-rush help, Leonard Floyd remains an option worth checking in on. Add Andrew Dannehy (Da Bears Blog) to the list of folks who see a reunion with Floyd as a feasible solution to an ongoing problem. It’s a short-term solution, to be sure. But any solution is a welcome one at this point.
  • On the other side of the line, Alex Shapiro (NBCS Chicago) takes note that the Bears’ O-line depth is getting an early test with Nate Davis skipping out on OTAs. I won’t hold it against Davis that he isn’t showing up for the voluntary practices. In fact, I like that the offensive line’s depth players get to move up the depth chart for the time being. If there ever was a time to make waves and a good impression, now is the time. Ideally, someone makes the most of the opportunity and shines. Maybe they’ll play their way into the lineup. At a minimum, you’d hope someone plays their way into being an option who won’t frighten us to bits if called upon in the regular season.
  • Is it too early for a 2024 mock draft? Yes. Am I going to read through every mock draft Jacob Infante puts in front of my eyeballs? Also, yes:

  • The only analysis I can provide at this point of the pre-draft process is that there are some amazing names on this list. I can totally vibe with typing out Dallas Turner, Emeka Egbuka, Marius Mims, Mekhi Wingo, and Carson Steele.
  • If there is anyone who knows how to make a meh QB sound better than he is, it’s Allen Robinson II:

  • Even still … I can’t believe he said that with his former teammate Mitchell Trubisky in the same room. That’s cold.
  • This is absolutely mind-blowing:

  • I guess it’s time to have that conversation:
