Hey Bears Fans! In this episode, I look into the future to predict how long the Bears’ championship window currently is. Because I think their championship hopes largely rely on their defense, I start by discussing what makes a defense great and what makes those defenses last. [START-7:30]

I explain why I think the defense effectively determines our window length and discuss looming contract issues in the Bears’ future. [7:30-14:30]

I weigh in on the ever-raging Adrian Amos vs Bryce Callahan debate, remembering to recap anyone unfamiliar on why we’re deciding between them at all. [14:30-20:00]

I discuss the rule changes the AAF’s debut brought with it and whether they’d be a good fit for the NFL. [20:00-24:50]

I note the importance of the AAF’s Sky Judge and detail how an NFL implementation could save football from another Rams-Saints situation. I also review why I think Pass Interference should never be made reviewable. [24:50-END]

Give it a listen and let me know what you think!
