OSS: Bear Down: Fury Road

Witness! The return of One Stop ‘Shop!

His name is Ryan Pace. The year, 2020. His world is now fire and blood. Once, he was an NFL GM. A Road Warrior searching for a Super Bowl Championship. But then, he traded multiple first round picks for a pass rusher. As Halas Hall fell, each of us in our own way was broken. It was hard to know who was more crazy. Him, or everyone else...These words, echo in his mind: Do not my friends, become addicted to draft picks. They will take hold of you, and you will resent their absence!

Long time readers of WCG will surely remember David Taylor’s awesome One Stop ‘Shop articles. For those of you who don’t remember, they featured Bears related photo edits and illustrations. Well, thanks to Lester, One Stop ‘Shop is back! I’ll be taking over the pixel pushing duties, and will hopefully live up to the standard.

So, in this first edition of OSS in nearly 3 years, we bring you Bear Down: Fury Road!

Just a bit of fun inspired by Josh Sunderbruch’s great article: The Chicago Bears Will Be Fine in 2020, where he humorously imagined, in the fallout from the Mack trade, a post-apocalyptic wasteland that is the NFC North, and a Thunderdome-like dystopia in Soldier Field. That idea burrowed it’s way into my brain, and here we are. I hope you enjoy!

Also, for those that are interested, here are the resources used to create the image (all credit to the original authors and photographers)

In the tradition of previous OSS articles, if you have any suggestions for Bears related photoshops or illustrations, share them in the comments section. If your idea is chosen, you will receive credit in the post!

Also, feel free to share any bears related photoshops or illustrations of your own! I’m always down to see people get creative, and think this would be a great space for people to do that.
