NFL Week 1: Bears vs Lions live updates and open thread

Welcome to our first Chicago Bears’ game day open thread of the 2020 season, and the first with our new commenting system, Coral.

Yeah, it’s been a rough transition from what we’re used to, but there have already been more than 20 new features and improvements since it launched, and SB Nation is still tweaking the system.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  1. If you change the ‘Sort By’ option to “Oldest,” you can read all the comments in chronological order, and the comment box moves to the bottom. If you leave it as “Newest”, the latest comments will appear at the top.
  2. If you’re using a computer, you can move down the comments using C, and move back up using shift-C by clicking once inside the comments area. This can also be used to ‘load more’ comments.
  3. Under the ‘My Profile’ tab, you can keep track of replies to your comments, and also sign up for email notifications of replies
  4. If you want to auto-show all images/GIFs/Tweets, you can opt into this under My Profile - Preferences

Also, we aren’t quite sure how the auto-moderating system will handle adult language, so if your F-Bombs aren’t showing up, maybe scale it back to a ‘Freak the fricking Lions!’ type of comment.

Chicago Bears vs Detroit Lions kicks off at Noon (Central), but our open thread is live right now!

Enjoy the game everyone!
