It’s a double feature on the big men. Jeff and EJ work their way through both the offensive and defensive lines as they near the finish of their positional reviews. The episode is so packed with info, the guys needed to reload with tasty beverages in order to get through all the talent.

The offensive line boasts not only talent but continuity with Charles Leno Jr., Cody Whitehair, James Daniels, Kyle Long, and Bobby Massie coming back for a second season together. The guys answer a few lingering questions about this group like will the switch of Daniels and Whitehair make the line better? Can Kyle Long stay healthy? Are the Leno Jr. and Massie contracts good for the team?

On the other side of the ball, the talented Akiem Hicks highlights the defensive line group with underrated Eddie Goldman and the emerging Bilal Nichols. Who are the top backups to watch and is Nichols primed to make another leap and where would that put him? All that and more so grab a beverage and join the guys on this mega-episode edition of Bears Over Beers.
