    Bears fans hoping to enjoy Thanksgiving may not want to turn on the game against the Lions as Chicago won’t have Justin Fields under center.  Despite the overall struggles of the Chicago Bears this season, fans have been able to hang their hats on rookie quarterback Justin Fields and the flashes he’s shown amid less than ideal circumstances. With Thanksgiving approaching, it was one thing that fans could certainly be thankful for. On actual Thanksgiving Day as the Bears face off with the NFC North-rival Lions, however, there will be very little thanks being given regarding the team on the field. After Fields was forced out of Sunday’s loss to the Ravens with bruised ribs that forced the team to evaluate the rookie’s spleen, the short turnaround to playing on Thursday will keep him off the field, meaning that Andy Dalton will get the start against Detroit, per Ian Rapoport. Sources: #Bears QB Andy Dalton is expected to start on Thursday, with Justin Fields dealing with a rib injury. He spent the day undergoing further testing, and the turnaround is...
    The Chicago Bears have signed a purchase agreement for Arlington International Racecourse, a move that takes the team a step closer toward securing property for a new stadium and leaving their longtime home at Soldier Field. The Bears on June 17 submitted one of multiple bids to purchase the Arlington Heights property, which Churchill Downs Inc. last winter announced would be up for sale for redevelopment. Bears President and CEO Ted Phillips said in a statement that finalizing the agreement was the “critical next step in continuing our exploration of the property and its potential.” Churchill Downs announced the sale price was $197.2 million and said it anticipated closing the sale in late 2022 or early 2023. Soldier Field, which is owned by the Chicago Park District, holds 61,500 fans, the smallest capacity in the NFL. The Bears also would be able to develop the 326-acre property around the stadium with shopping, dining and entertainment. Here’s what to know about the possible move from Soldier Field, with reaction from City Hall to Arlington Heights. What would...
    On Monday Night Football this week, the Chicago Bears are all set to travel to Heinz Field to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers.  NFL fans are ready for another fun Monday Night Football showdown to arrive, this time with the Chicago Bears and Pittsburgh Steelers getting ready to go to battle. This matchup will feature rookie signal-caller Justin Fields going up against Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers are 4-3 on the year and they’re coming off a win last weekend vs. Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns.

    Anthropologie has been slammed for 'exploiting Princess Diana for money' after the clothing retailer shared a photoshoot featuring a model with a striking resemblance to the late royal. The clothing retailer shared six images from a photoshoot on their Instagram page earlier this week, each featuring a model wearing her hair in a short blonde bob and 80s style outfits. The comment section was quickly flooded with royal fans pointing out the models likeness to Princess Diana. Many were critical of the brand for the apparent reference to the late royal, with one posting: ' I don't know why but using the Princess to sell clothes feels wrong'.  MailOnline has contacted Anthropologie for comment.   Anthropologie has been slammed for 'exploiting Princess Diana for money' after the clothing retailer shared a photoshoot featuring a model with a striking resemblance to the late royal (pictured)  The six images featured the same model with blonde locks styled in Diana's signature voluminous way which she wore during the '80s The six images featured the same model with blonde locks styled in Diana's signature voluminous way...
    Getty Bears outside linebacker Robert Quinn has tested positive for COVID-19. The Chicago Bears announced on October 19 that starting linebacker Robert Quinn had tested positive for COVID-19. Quinn is believed to be vaccinated, per Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times, which means the veteran pass rusher will need to test negative two more times — with each test coming 24 hours apart — before he would get the OK to play in Chicago’s upcoming Week 7 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bears are fresh from a tough divisional loss to their longtime rivals, the Green Bay Packers, so losing Quinn, who is second on the team in sacks with 5.5, just before another huge matchup, is far from ideal. While Quinn’s status against the Bucs is still up in the air, a few Packer fans (and fans posing as analysts) were still on high from their favorite team’s recent victory, and one prominent Packers beat writer may have taken his commentary on the rivalry a bit too far.

    Aaron Rodgers has ticked off plenty of folks in Chicago after saying “I own you” to Bears fans over the weekend.  Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers sure is despised in the Windy City. Not only is he known for always lighting up the Chicago Bears, but he’s getting pretty cocky about things of late. We all saw that in Week 6. In the win over the Bears, Rodgers scored on a rushing touchdown in the fourth quarter and then told Bears fans “I own you” with plenty of passion. Well, former Bears Pro Bowler Olin Kreutz saw this and didn’t hold back in going after the signal-caller. .@olin_kreutz didn’t like Aaron Rodgers “I still own you” comment directed at the #Bears and their fans Sunday. “Id like to punch him in his face," Olin says.

    Aaron Rodgers has no regrets about his “I own you” rant directed at Chicago Bears fans, but he was surprised to see it spread like wildfire this week. Maybe because his 22-5 career record against the Chicago Bears proves he does own them? The quarterback might have been surprised, but he blames the reaction to his fan interaction on “the state of our culture…this woke PC culture.” “There’s a PC woke culture that exists,” Rodgers told Pat McAfee Tuesday afternoon. “And there’s a cancel culture at the same time and it’s based on people’s own feelings of maybe personal miserability or distaste for their own situations or life or just the enjoyment of holding other people down underneath their thumb.” Rodgers explained that he was the target of that “PC woke culture” earlier this year, when he took time during the offseason to get in the right frame of mind and it was characterized as “selfish and entitled.” Rodgers public persona has changed in the last year, with the three-time MVP winner being less of a...
    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers wasn’t holding back.

    Grace Kelly: The life story you may not know States With the Widest Income Gaps Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers could be looking for a new team after the season. Rodgers' frustration with the Packers reached an apex in the offseason, and his contract was restructured in a way that forces the Packers to trade him before 2022. With his future uncertain, Rodgers took the bold step of ruling out one NFL franchise for which he will never play. That team? You probably already guessed it's the Chicago Bears. Rodgers was asked about the possibility, and offered a blunt assessment, saying, "No. No. It's just not going to happen, man." Here’s Aaron Rodgers on playing in Chicago, growing up a fan of the Bulls and whether he would ever join the Bears.

    Matt Nagy and the Bears refusal to start Justin Fields is perplexing and frustrating more than just fans in Chicago.  The Chicago Bears debuting Justin Fields in Week 1 was not exactly what anyone had envisioned. Despite this, the Bears lost by double-digits and have merely teased fans with what the future holds rather than delivering it right now.
    ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter defended Chicago Bear’s head coach Matt Nagy to not start rookie quarterback Justin Fields. The Chicago Bears began their 2021 season with a rather demoralizing 34-14 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Quarterback Andy Dalton started the season-opener for the Bears, and head coach Matt Nagy did sprinkle in rookie first-round signal caller Justin Fields for a couple of plays. During and following the game, Bears fans called for Nagy to bench Dalton in favor of Fields. Prior to Monday night’s game between the Baltimore Ravens and Las Vegas Raiders, ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter passionately discussed why Nagy is not yet starting Fields. Bears fans may not like what they hear. “The plan is to guard the big picture and to not break this quarterback before they believe hes ready. … What about the guys that had the chance to sit on the bench? Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady.”@AdamSchefter with some perspective on the Bears QB situation. pic.twitter.com/kbTbb207ya — NFL on ESPN (@ESPNNFL) September 13, 2021 Bears: Adam Schefter defends Matt Nagy’s decision...
    It took one drive for Chicago Bears fans to start calling for quarterback Andy Dalton to be benched in favor of rookie Justin Fields. If Bears head coach Matt Nagy hoped Chicago fans might take a wait-and-see approach to the quarterback spot, they have. They waited for the season-opener to arrive. They saw one drive of Andy Dalton. And they decided they want nothing to do with him. After Dalton threw a red zone interception against the Rams on his first drive, fans on Twitter went straight to calling for Justin Fields to take over at quarterback. Bears fans have no patience for Andy Dalton and want Justin FieldsPart of the frustration was seeing Dalton make exactly the kind of mistake a veteran isn’t supposed to make. I’m done with Andy Dalton already. Also can’t freaking false start on 3rd & 1 and then take a timeout. Kills the whole drive. And then the INT. Already ripping my hairs out 3 minutes into the game. — Chicago Bears Nation (@Bears__Nation) September 13, 2021 The worst part here is...

While he appreciates the support, the rookie signal caller also believes that it's "disrespectful" to veteran quarterback Andy Dalton. "I noticed it, of course. The fans are awesome, but they also have to realize Andy is a human being too," Fields said, according to NBC Sports. "Andy is...
    Justin Fields is competing with Andy Dalton for the starting quarterback job in Chicago, but he still thinks Bears fans should support the veteran this preseason. The next generation in Chicago may start sooner than Andy Dalton expected. Bears fans are ready for the Justin Fields experience starting Week 1, but it appears Matt Nagy is opting to take things slow with his talented rookie out of Ohio State. That — by most responsible accounts — is an intelligent tactic, though Fields’ play on the field suggests he may be ready by Week 1. This goes against the Bears’ thinking, as they signed Dalton to a one-year, $10 million, which could be worth up to $13 million with incentives. Despite the pleading on Chicago sports radio, Nagy is set to stick with his original plan.Chicago Bears: Justin Fields wants fans to support Andy DaltonIn two preseason games so far, Fields has looked like the better player, even if he’s facing worse competition.

    Getty Justin Fields has fellow Chicago Bears QB Andy Dalton's back. Justin Fields would like the boos for fellow Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton to cease, thank you very much. With over half of the second quarter remaining in Chicago’s second preseason game against the Buffalo Bills, fans in attendance at Soldier Field began to grow impatient with Chicago’s inability to do much on offense with Dalton leading the way, and they let their displeasure be known. Chants of “We want Fields” also rang loud and clear throughout the stadium. "We want Fields" chants now at Soldier Field. Now boos. — Adam Jahns (@adamjahns) August 21, 2021 While the majority of fans were likely booing Dalton out of a misplaced desire to see the dazzling rookie quarterback play, some were clearly unhappy about the way the offense was moving — or not, as was the case against the Bills — with Dalton running it. The Red Rifle finished the game 11-17 for 146 yards, a touchdown and an interception, but literally half of those yards came on one...
    Tarik Cohen does not want Chicago Bears fans to boo Mitchell Trubisky in Saturday’s game. In his much-anticipated return to Soldier Field, Buffalo Bills backup quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is probably going to get booed hellaciously by rowdy Chicago Bears fans, and running back Tarik Cohen thinks that is messed up. It does not matter that Chicago general manager Ryan Pace traded up to No. 2 from No. 3 to take Trubisky over Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson in the 2017 NFL Draft, he is the reigning NVP! Show the man some damn respect! Trubisky might be backing up Josh Allen in the land of sauce these days, but don’t let the extra sauced up Bears fans get you down on Saturday, man.

    The Green Bay Packers have signed quarterback Blake Bortles and folks can’t stop trolling them over the questionable decision.  Some more offseason quarterback news is in for the Green Bay Packers, but it’s surely not what fans were hoping to see. General manager Brian Gutekunst went out and signed Blake Bortles to a new deal? Per Adam Schefter, that’s exactly what happened. While the beef with Aaron Rodgers has countless cheeseheads out there depressed, this Bortles news isn’t going to cheer anyone up. Not even a bit.

Of course, that’d be the most offense Chicago has seen since Matt Nagy came to town back in 2017. Since then, Bears fans endured and survived the Mitchell Trubisky era but now face a future that is murkier than the Chicago River, but hopefully not filled with as much toxic garbage. Whether Nagy and general manager Ryan Pace are in power after this season is beyond the point. Chicago needs to nail this year’s draft to set a foundation for the future and that starts with sticking the landing in the first-round.Chicago Bears NFL Draft Rumors: Best first-round outcomes3.

    CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – JANUARY 03: Head coach Matt Nagy of the Chicago Bears talks with Mitchell Trubisky #10 in a time out against the Green Bay Packers during the second quarter in the game at Soldier Field on January 03, 2021 in Chicago, Illinois. (Photo by Quinn Harris/Getty Images) Ryan Pace insists that the Bears are committed to finding a long-term solution to their quarterback issues this offseason. If that’s truly the case, neither Mitchell Trubisky nor Nick Foles can credibly be considered to be the team’s starter when the 2021 season begins. It’s always possible that Chicago could use free agency or a trade to solve their quarterback issues. The most likely scenario is that the Bears will look to April’s NFL Draft to land a player capable of leading their offense for years to come. The track record of Pace and Chicago head coach Matt Nagy may not be promising on that front, but Bears fans can hope for things to be different this time around. The franchise doesn’t have the elite draft pick required to land one...
    The New Orleans Saints are the favorites heading into Sunday’s NFC wild-card game against the Chicago Bears but head coach Sean Payton was hoping to increase those odds with a very unusual suggestion. This year’s playoffs will look vastly different from any other season as local COVID-19 restrictions have limited fan capacity from a few thousand to none at all. According to The Athletic, the Saints will be allowing 3,700 fans – 700 being friends and family -- to attend this weekend’s game at Mercedes-Benz Superdome.  2020-21 NFL WILD CARD WEEKEND MATCHUPS, SCHEDULE AND MORE But those numbers didn’t seem enough to coach Payton, who was looking to improve the home-field advantage.  "I brought up the idea of testing 50,000 people and quarantining them in a hotel and having the most safest Superdome known to man, scientifically.

    Getty The Vikings social media alluded to Nick Foles' injury in a recent tweet that has Bears fans fuming. The Vikings carried some woes into last Monday’s primetime matchup against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field — the site of three straight losses dating back to 2017 and a 4-16 record since 2000. The NFC North grudge match lived up to its expectations. The Bears’ stout defensive front kept Dalvin Cook relatively and check, meanwhile, the Bears offense struggled, failing to muster a single touchdown as former Vikings first-rounder Cordarrelle Patterson scored the Bears only TD on a 104-yard kickoff return. It was a hard-fought defensive gridlock that had a causality. Bears quarterback Nick Foles was thrown to the ground by Ifeadi Odenigbo with 32 seconds left in the game as the Bears had one last shot to cut the six-point deficit. It resulted in Foles being carted off the field as backup quarterback Tyler Bray could not will the Bears to victory. The Vikings Twitter account’s postgame graphic featured a photo of Foles on the ground with...

(Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images) Maybe it was getting rocked by Khalil Mack multiple times, or maybe there’s just something about playing Nick Foles. Either way, Tom Brady did not look like himself against the Chicago Bears Thursday night, particularly late in the game. Brady, who has more fourth quarter comebacks than any other quarterback in NFL history, fell apart on the Buccaneers’ last series late in the game. Down 20-19, he and the Bucs offense got the ball back with 1:13 remaining, and after missing on a throw to Mike Evans, Brady hit Ke’Shawn Vaughn for a short gain before tossing another incompletion to Rob Gronkowski. On fourth down, Brady missed tight end Cameron Brate, and afterwards, he seemed to think he had one more play left, which he did not. Tom Brady seemed to think...
    Getty QB Nick Foles just had his first start with the Chicago Bears. It did not go well. Well, that didn’t take long. After all the hype and hope, Nick Foles’ first start as a Chicago Bear resulted in a lopsided 19-11 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Foles looked flat and inaccurate, and Matt Nagy’s offense was, well, offensive yet again. Three years into Nagy’s tenure, the Bears still look like the Bad News Bears, but without all the fun, and now, after watching just a few quarters of Foles struggling, Bears fans have already begun clamoring for Mitch Trubisky to replace Foles. Chicago went 4-14 on third down, and they failed to score in the third quarter for the fourth straight game.

We have to find this guy. They do a great job of mixing him around, moving him, creating opportunities for this guy. But he’s proved over time why he’s one of the top in the league.” However, what if the “dynamic” playmaker was lining up on the opposite side of the football during the Giants-Bears matchup, catching passes from Daniel Jones rather than Mitchell Trubisky? That’s a hypothetical scenario Giants fans have fantasized about ever since trade rumors involving Robinson began to spread like wildfire earlier this week.Giants Fans Call for A-Rob TradeThe Bears’ honeymoon following a Week 1 victory over their division foes, the Detroit Lions, came to a screeching halt...
    Aaron Rodgers playing for the Chicago Bears is something former Green Bay Packers great Brett Favre would love to see. The Hall of Famer made an appearance on the Complex Sports podcast on Tuesday and explained his rationale for why he’d enjoy seeing that situation unfold. After Favre said he wanted to see Rodgers on his last time rival squad, he explained it wasn’t because he has any animosity towards his old squad. Instead, the man who preceded Rodgers as the Super Bowl-winning signal-caller in Green Bay said he’d like to see it, just to see how Bears fans would react. In the podcast, later posted on Twitter, he said he’d love to see Rodgers playing in Chicago because combined, the two quarterbacks had beaten up on the team so many times in his career. He added he’d like to see fans feel torn about rooting for someone who had beaten them so many times. Luis Medina of Bleacher Nation wrote that he understood exactly what the Hall of Famer, who finished his career with the Minnesota Vikings was talking...

    Getty Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is Enemy No. 1 in Chicago. Trevis Gipson gets it. The Bears’ fifth-round draft pick out of Tulsa hasn’t been a member of the team long, but he knows who the enemy is. Chicago sent a 2021 fourth-round draft pick in order to snag him at No. 155 overall, and the outside linebacker is looking forward to joining what should be one of the best defenses in the league. “I think it’s going to be exciting,” Gipson said in his Meet the Rookies segment about joining a defense full of All-Pros and talented veterans. “I’ve always been a fan of Khalil Mack, Robert Quinn also. Obviously, they have a lot of experience in the game. I want to play football as long as I can, and I think those two guys can really help guide me on that path.” One thing he doesn’t need to learn is who Public Enemy No. 1 is — he already knows, and he shared his findings in hilarious fashion on Twitter.

    Patrick Mahomes and Mitchell Trubisky. (Photo by Dylan Buell/Getty Images) Patrick Mahomes is getting paid as it’s another reminder for Bears fans of what could have been.Chicago Bears fans want to forget it ever happened, but it’s hard to block this out of the memory. The Bears didn’t take Patrick Mahomes and instead traded up to take Mitchell Trubisky with the No. 2 pick. After three NFL seasons, Mahomes has an MVP, Super Bowl and a Super Bowl MVP to his name while Trubisky didn’t have his fifth-year option picked up and may lose his job to Nick Foles who was acquired in a trade for a fourth-round pick in the offseason. With the news that the Chiefs have signed Mahomes to a 10-year extension that is the richest deal in NFL history, it’s another sad reminder of what could have been in Chicago. Chiefs and QB Patrick Mahomes have reached agreement on a 10-year — 10-year! — contract extension that ties him to Kansas City through the 2031 season, league sources tell ESPN. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 6,...
    Cam Newton (Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images) Newton’s one-year deal will be a bargain if he returns to his best. Cam Newton will get a chance to revive his career with the New England Patriots, who inked the 2015 MVP to a deal that will be a bargain if he succeeds in shaking off his injury issues and returning to peak form. The Patriots, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen, signed Newton to an incentive-laden one-year contract that, per NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, is worth up to $7.5million. Newton will head to New England clearly behind Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer in the quarterback pecking order after a 2019 season in which he was restricted to just two games because of a Lisfranc injury. That followed a 2018 campaign that saw Newton battle a shoulder issue. However, the reward greatly outweighs the risk for the Patriots, who will have one of the top quarterbacks in the league on their books if Newton gets back to his best and takes the starting job from Stidham, who is expected to...
    Mandatory Credit: Dylan Buell/Getty Images Chicago Bears fans are hoping their days of watching Mitchell Trubisky are over, but Ted Ginn Jr has a sobering outlook.  It seems that Mitchell Trubisky’s days are numbered in Chicago. After three tremendously disappointing seasons, Bears fans are ready to cut their losses and find the next guy who can be the quarterback of the future. Trubisky has been woefully underwhelming in his career since being drafted No. 2 overall in 2016, with things like being picked over Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson going even further to not help his case. Chicago traded for Nick Foles this offseason to create a competition for the starting job in 2020, something that was bittersweet for Bears fans. While getting a potential replacement for Trubisky was the biggest wish for most fans, the Bears picking as unsexy an option as they did (a bloated contract over Cam Newton) soured the goodwill. Still, the point remains that many are expecting this to be the end of the line in Chicago for Trubisky. Not among that crowd, however, is...
