Now that Khalil Mack is the newest member of the Monsters of the Midway, we’re going to cover the trade in every way possible here at Windy City Gridiron.
That goes from his fit with the Chicago Bears defense and in defensive coordinator Vic Fangio’s scheme, the trade compensation, the impact around the NFC North, and much more.
There was a lot of rumbling about a possible Mack trade the last few weeks, but it never looked like the Bears had a realistic chance until the last couple of days. I wonder how much the Green Bay Packers having interest nudged general manager Ryan Pace into making sure he’d be the one to acquire the 27-year old former Defensive Player of the Year.
I can’t wait to see how Mack fits in the same defense with Leonard Floyd, Akiem Hicks, Danny Trevathan, Roquan Smith, Eddie Jackson, and Kyle Fuller.
Mack makes the Bears better. He’s one of the best pass rushers in the game with 40.5 sacks in his four-year career, and it’s not only about the sacks in the NFL.

Consistent pressure is the difference between a good defense and a great defense. Mack pressures quarterbacks better than almost anyone else. He gives the Bears a chance to be great.
