BWM: Talking through Training Camp with Zack Pearson

In the latest episode of Bear With Me, Robert S. brings on one of the few people who’s actually been at Bears’ practices to talk through camp battles, the QB competition, and more.

If there’s one thing that Chicago Bears fan can agree on in 2020, it’s that this year’s training camp experience has been frustrating to interact with. Instead of going to (or watching videos of) training camp, fans have had to put their trust in the reports of the select few media members allowed to watch practices and have therefore formed their opinions exclusively secondhand.

But camp reports can only relay so much information — while of course most of the coverage has justifiably gone to the QB competition, there remain many questions that have received little (if any) form of answer in days:

  • How is the battle at Safety to be Eddie Jackson’s partner coming along?
  • Which offensive linemen have stood out thus far in camp, if any?
  • Which new defensive addition has surprised as an EDGE rusher?
  • Are the Bears’ tight ends really worth getting excited about?
  • Just how good has rookie WR Darnell Mooney looked?
  • And many, many more.

Thankfully, I was able to recruit The Bear Report’s Zack Pearson, one of the lucky few that’s attended Bears’ practices since the start of camp, to help me answer questions like the ones above and more in this episode of Bear With Me. Check out the show and let me know what you think!

What do you think? Has any of Zack’s camp insight surprised you?
