Last year the Bears opened up the season in the HOF Game in Canton Ohio, this year it’s Denver vs. Atlanta

This year’s Hall Of Fame game isn’t nearly as interesting to Bears fans as the 2018 edition which featured the Greatest Football Team On The Planet, otherwise known as The Chicago Bears, playing against some other team that nobody cares about I forget who they were.

While Chicago’s players and coaches are still in camp at Bourbonnais, last year’s Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio will make his debut as an NFL head coach to take on the Atlanta Falcons.

Well, hey MAY make his debut. Late word out of Canton states that Vic is battling kidney stones. Here’s a link for you if you are interested:

Broncos coach Vic Fangio battling kidney stone - NFL.com - Vic Fangio is scheduled to make his head coaching debut Thursday night, leading the Broncos against the Falcons in the Hall of Fame Game. But a medical issue could sideline the first-year skipper.

On the one hand it’s not Chicago Bears football. On the other hand, it’s NFL football, Sort of. Ish.

This is your first official open thread of the 2018 season so stay classy out there!
