The Chicago Bears opened up their 2022 season with an unexpected 19 to 10 victory against the San Francisco 49ers. After listening to the press conferences, rewatching the game, and letting the immediate emotions of the big win subside a bit, Jeff Berckes and I wanted to share our thoughts about the Bears.

As we do every night after Bears’ games, we go live on our 2nd City Gridiron YouTube channel to break down what we saw with our cooled-down post-game show.

Tune in tonight at 6:00 p.m. CT!

Here’s a bullet point outline of our latest Bear & Balanced show.

  • 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. Tune in to find out how you can win!
  • 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 spend some time talking about quarterback Justin Fields right before we take a 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 Niners.
