The Chicago Bears play one week from today!

Hopefully, you all are enjoying this last Sunday before the craziness of the NFL gets started, so here’s an Open Thread to discuss any and everything about the Chicago Bears.

With the Chicago Bears playing an actual regular season game in just one week, we wanted to bring you guys a calm-before-the-storm open thread to discuss anything about our beloved Navy and Orange. Open threads are rated WCG-MA, so dive in at your own risk!

We’ll get many of our usual in-season weekly columns, videos, and podcasts started this week. After the final whistle hits for Chicago’s September 10 contest against the Green Bay Packers, our team will be 100% full speed ahead, bringing you guys the most Bears’ content we possibly can.
