The first round of our All-Chicago Bears Historical Fantasy Tournament kicks off today with a battle between Robert’s team and Jack’s team.

It’s fitting that these two are facing off in the first round, because both of these teams had controversial first round draft picks to get started.

Jack M. Silverstein opened the draft taking one of the all-time great Chicago Bears, but it wasn’t the all-time great Bear. Linebacker Brian Urlacher went No. 1 overall in our All-Bears Historical Fantasy Draft. Jack knew it would be a pick that would require some explaining so he penned this article: Why I picked Brian Urlacher #1 over Walter Payton in our WCG all-time Bears draft.

At the bottom of the first round, Robert Zeglinski went in an odd direction as well, but if you know Robert at all, then you should have seen the pick coming. He took one of his favorite players, Leonard Floyd, with the No. 10 overall selection.

First and foremost, this All-Bears Fantasy draft was meant to be a fun exercise for us WCG’ers to go through. So, it’s natural that our personal feelings for players were going to creep through on occasion. We had a blast and we hope you guys learned about some of the old school Bears’ players like we did.

Now it’s up to you guys to decide how this fantasy match-up would play out.

Besides Urlacher, Team Jack’s front seven also has the first ever middle linebacker, Bill George, and one of the greatest two-way players of all time in defensive end Bill Hewitt. His secondary is led by hard hitting Doug Plank and Rosey Taylor.

Will they be able to stop Team Robert’s offense led by quarterback Johnny Lujack throwing darts to Brandon Marshall? How about his running game with Neal Anderson scampering through holes opened up by Ed Healey, George Trafton, and Cody Whitehair?

Team Jack’s offense is reuniting center Olin Kreutz and guard Ruben Brown up front, and they’ll protect quarterback George Blanda so he can throw it deep to Marcus Robinson. And what about the creative things he can do with his wildcard player Devin Hester.

Team Robert’s defense not only has Floyd coming off the edge, but Julius Peppers too. Let’s not forget about Dan Hampton who can play anywhere along his defensive line, along with the beefy Ted Washington at nose. His cornerback tandem of Kyle Fuller and Donnell Woolford will take advantage of rushed throws, as will the all-around great Mark Carrier at safety.

Now it’s up to you.
