“This is March” is a phrase that is used by CBS College Basketball analyst Jon Rothstein every year throughout the NCAA tournament. Rothstein uses it so much, that he’s turned it into a meme and brand of which his Twitter account is famously synonymous with. Now that it’s April however, means a different time of year has begun: the NFL’s draft season has mercifully almost reached the end of the road. Come month’s conclusion, the Bears will have their next hopeful franchise players. They’ll all have been summarily dissected, complained about, and or embraced soon after being drafted. A period of eager evaluation coming to a close.
This Is April.
As we enter this crunch time where agents, teams, and fans alike will be losing their respective minds, this mailbag is a kickoff towards full gear plans through April. Since there is only so much in terms of open forums that can be touched on over the next 25 days, I’ll be doing a mailbag (and other scheduled work) each week this month to appropriately match the rising fervor.
At this point, you know the drill.
What’s on your mind regarding the Bears? Are you getting hyped for the pending Mitchell Trubisky and Allen Robinson bromance? Maybe you have general questions unrelated to the Bears or NFL, as for example, Avengers Infinity War is also debuting draft weekend (which Avenger dies?). Get creative or keep it simple, it doesn’t matter. Let’s have some fun over roughly the next four weeks.
As usual, you can send every question to me by either replying in the comments below or tweeting at me @RobertZeglinski while using #AskWCG.
Brace for it everyone: the 2018 draft ride is almost over. This is April.
