Is the Justin Fields hype real? (& other Training Camp insights)

In this episode of Bear With Me, Robert S. brings on BearReport’s Zack Pearson to talk through what he’s seeing at Chicago Bears training camp!

NFL: Chicago Bears Training Camp Jon Durr-USA TODAY Sports

As a fan, easily the most obnoxious part of NFL training camp is that out-of-towners like me can’t see practice, but we sure can read about it. This leads me to scouring every scrap of training camp insight I can, be it ILB performance in 1v1 drills or info on Cole Kmet’s sophomore step.

This leads to a long list of questions buried beneath reports on Justin Fields, and thankfully we’ve got Zack Pearson to help get them answered — a reporter for BearReport, Zack has attended practice at Halas Hall over the last two weeks and graciously agreed to provide his insight on Training Camp’s ups and downs for this week’s episode of Bear With Me!

Throughout the show we discuss...

  • Is the Cole Kmet hype out of camp real? What about Jesse James?
  • Which DBs are standing out? Which are struggling?
  • Has the OL been as bad as reported? Is anyone distinguishing themselves?
  • Does Justin Fields really look that good?
  • How does Darnell Mooney look? David Montgomery? Damien Williams?
  • And much, much more...
