Fan Challenge Update: Vote for your favorite nickname!

It’s time for the first round of voting. And thanks to everyone for all the great suggestions!

Last Thursday, we asked for fans from all over the web to give out some suggestions to an updated nickname for this 2018 squad on the Chicago Bears’ defense. Or, as many have suggested, simply declare a rebirth of the Monsters of the Midway. Depending on which perspective you may look, that historic name has stuck with the whole team since the 1940’s.

If you’d like to scroll over the suggestions made last week, then here is a link to my first Fan Challenge article.

Alas, now is the time to begin with the first round of voting! And, with the defense showing no signs of slowing down — knocks on wood — it marks for the best time to make this tough choice.

This poll will last for exactly one calendar week, with the final pole to be released with the top three suggestions. Of course, the people who suggested these nicknames will receive full credit for their suggestions, and be given a hearty shout out when the tallies are finalized.

Now, may the voting commence!


As befitting of recent traditions in the NFL, how shall we christen this new Chicago Bears defense?
