Bears fans, we’re here. We’ve made it.

Tomorrow night the NFL’s 2019 season will kick off in cinematic fashion as the Chicago Bears take on the Green Bay Packers to the roar of Soldier Field. But before we sink our teeth into the game, we first need to discuss the names of those Bears who made the 53-man roster — in this episode of Bear With Me...

  • I dissect each position group on the Bears’ final roster, reasoning my way through each surprise inclusion and exclusion...
  • I review the Bears 10-man practice squad...
  • And I explain why I think a traditional preview is unfair to Thursday night’s Bears-Packers matchup.
