I went to Halas Hall last night to watch the taping of Bears All Access radio show hosted by Zach Zaidman broadcast on 670theScore on Thursday nights. LINK to podcast of the show, which is not posted yet.
Here's me with the Lombardi Trophy from the '85 season in the Halas Hall lobby:

We then got seated inside the auditorium for the show. I naturally took a seat in the front row; here's my view:

Nothing too interesting came out during the show. When asked who's the "star" of the defense, each guy was very quick with their answer. Henry Melton said Tim Jennings; Nate Collins said Charles Tillman. For this season, I agree.
After the show, my dad took this shot of me with Henry Melton:

The auditorium we were in seems to also be used by the offense and special teams for meetings. Posted on one wall was this:

You can see that in weeks 2, 9, and 10 the offense did not come close to their stated goals. All of those were brutal losses.
On the opposite wall this was posted:

Dave Toub obviously keeps track of where they stand in all areas of their special teams.
Next up was dinner in the players dining room. Barbeque beef and chicken sandwiches with various sides were offered. It was excellent. I snapped these two interesting photos:
