Bear & Balanced: A level headed look at Bears vs Chiefs

Jamie Sabau-USA TODAY Sports Welcome to our first Bear & Balanced of the 2022 Chicago Bears season! Well, technically the preseason, but it is our first show recapping a Bear game since January. If you are new to our show, we like to keep things simple with a standard list of categories (see below), and we never recap the game until sleeping on it. We allow the immediate postgame emotions to get out of the way, we go back and watch the game, and we listen to the postgame press conference, all as a way to make sure our recap has a balanced feel to it. Here’s a bullet...

ECD’s Takes on the Bears’ pre-season debut against the Chiefs

These glorified scrimmages will provide entertainment and brief glimpses of what we should expect come September. That last statement is magnified by the fact this is our first chance to see what the Matt Eberflus-coached Bears has in store...

Bears vs Chiefs: Takeaways from the snap counts, stats, and more

Jamie Sabau-USA TODAY Sports The Chicago Bears knocked off the Kansas City Chiefs in a game that truly was a tale of two halves. In the first half of the game, when it was mostly starters vs starters, the perennial playoff contending Chiefs had the advantage 14-0. But in the second half, Chicago’s backups outscored K.C.’s backups 19-0. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the top of the Chiefs' depth chart was better than the players atop Chicago’s depth chart, but it’s a testament to general manager Ryan Poles and the coaching staff that the bottom of the...

Notes: Soldier Field grass sucks, but Bears don’t in win over Chiefs

Photo by Michael Reaves/ The Bears get some solid performances out of young up-and-comers in their preseason opener. The Bears got their revenge win over Matt Nagy, and they’re currently undefeated in the Matt Eberflus-Ryan Poles era. Okay, both of those are overreactions to a Week 1 preseason game. But there was a nice buzz in the air at Soldier Field on Saturday when Chicago defeated the Chiefs 19-14. After months of speculation and debate over just about everything imaginable, Bears football made its return in a triumphant fashion. The Bears got what they wanted...

Justin Fields to Darnell Mooney. Why one ‘routine’ big play from the preseason win gives the Chicago Bears offense confidence.

Justin Fields to Darnell Mooney. Why one ‘routine’ big play from the preseason win gives the Chicago Bears offense confidence.

Justin Fields' 26-yard completion to Darnell Mooney was the Chicago Bears’ biggest play from scrimmage in their 19-14 preseason victory. An argument can be made that that long completion was also the team’s biggest play as far as future potential is concerned too.
