Bear & Balanced: Bears Trade Aftermath and Cowboys Review

Jeff & Lester rewatched the Bears vs Cowboys game and they have some chilled-out takes right here plus they share their thoughts on the two big trades!

NFL: Chicago Bears at Dallas Cowboys Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears played a game against the Dallas Cowboys just two days ago, but with the flurry of trade activity, it seems much longer than that. General manager Ryan Poles traded away linebacker Roquan Smith yesterday and then today he traded for wide receiver Chase Claypool.

Jeff Berckes and I will run through our usual categories on tonight’s show, but we’ll get things started talking about those trades and what they mean for this year’s team and the future. Give the show a listen when we go live at 6:00 p.m. (CT)!

Here's our usual bullet point outline of Bear & Balanced.

  • Intro: We'll both share some general thoughts about the game.
  • The Portillo's Trench Tribute: This is our weekly pick for lineman of the game, and thanks to our friends over at Portillo's, we'll be giving out a $100 gift card to one lucky fan each week this season. WE GIVE $100 AWAY EVERY WEEK, SO TUNE IN FOR YOUR CHANCE!
  • Sweet Tweets: We're both active on social media — so be sure you're all following us at @gridironborn & @wiltfongjr and we highlight one Twitter interaction/Tweet each week.
  • Caught up in a numbers game: This segment has us featuring one number/statistic that we found interesting from the game.
  • The Fields Report: We always talk about quarterback Justin Fields right before we take our commercial break.
  • The 3 Bears: You all know the story of the Three Bears, right? In this porridge-themed portion of the show, we give our picks for the Bear that was hot, the Bear that was cold, and the Bear that was just right in the game against the Cowboys.
