Cabin fever can set in for the football community this time of year. So when a bit of fervor arises on social media regarding any Bears player, that creates discussion of fits and trades. It also means jumping into draft needs and off-season optimism: much more lighter hearted topics.
Thankfully, the 2018 Draft is just two weeks away where much of these situations can be averted. The season where Matt Nagy and company can fully jump on this optimism is unfortunately and obviously not until September though. That means this honeymoon Bears’ phase of good faith can continue for now.
Windy City Gridiron editor and football journalist Robert Zeglinski hopped on CLTV Sports Feed once again to dive in deep on all of these topics and more. What is Jordan Howard’s value to the Bears? Who fits Chicago better: Minkah Fitzpatrick or Denzel Ward? And, how much control does “big man on campus” Mitchell Trubisky have over Halas Hall?
His in-depth conversation with hosts Josh Frydman and Jarrett Payton in a meeting of the Bears’ minds is below.
