Since it’s the bye week and things are a bit slow, I thought we could do something totally different and a bit fun, have a “roll your own” version of the Den where YOU supply the links you want to discuss. The normal rules apply, it’s not an open thread, we are a Chicago Bears / NFL forum, we don’t do politics or religion here in the Den, and that includes anything related to the National Anthem.
Helmet tip to Lester Wiltfong, Jr. for the idea for this Den.
To make a link, here’s the easy way to do it. Find your link and open it in a different tab from the Den. Write your link text in the following format:
Mitchell: The Bear’s Den, November 3, 2017, The Roll your own edition - Windy City Gridron (for example)
Then copy the link, highlight your headline, and click the link button and paste the link into your post.
Following this, write a short description of the link, and post!
If that sounds like a lot of work, well I do that (or something similar) 20-40 times a day to make each Den.
To make your life easy, I’m going to share a part of my daily sites I check, so here’s a bunch of resources you can use to find your links!
KNOW THY ENEMY

We do not allow comments posted where the apparent attempt is to cause confrontation in the community.
