I'm actually pretty interested in seeing Daniel Jones play.

As far as the Bears go....more of the same as last week. I want to see Montgomery, the TE's and of the 2nd team OL starts to come together.

One defense I'll be watching for Bullard and paying attention to the LB's and DB's.

I'd like to see coverage teams improve, and of course will be focused on the kicking saga.

Just get out of this one healthy and I hope Pineiro grabs this job by the throat and doesn't let go.

1) Stay healthy. The time to eat livers with chianti is Opening Day against the Packers. Save the energy for then.
2) See #1.
3) Let's see some more SIngletary.
4) I'm with Fry. I hope he goes 4 for 4 with a couple PATs and puts the competition away early.
5) If either Daniel or Bray want to look like a decent backup that would be fine by me.
6) I want the offensive and defensive schemes to be as boring as possible. Don't tip any hands.
7) Enjoy myself in the new chat room and crack some jokes.

I'm very worried about special teams. I see no reason why they shouldn't be performing near their best during preseason games. Sure, Tabor might be using bubble players to help determine who sticks, and starters might play 10-20% of ST snaps during the regular season but won't during the preseason. But they sure better play better than they did against the Panthers.

I am very happy this game is nationally televised on NFLN.

Another reason to hate pre-season is because even if you have Sunday Ticket (like myself) you still cannot watch pre-season games when out of market.

Thought I was going to miss this game because of work but lucked out and found someone to swap shifts!

I think the Bears should end each offensive drive with field goal attempts once they get in range ... let the offense drive into scoring territory but then let the kickers do their thing rather than going for the endzone ... I think this would be the best use of this practice game

You kind of get that with a TD, though, don't you? XP is kind of like driving to the 15 and stalling out.

They should just false start / delay of game before each XP to get a longer kick, if that's the goal.

Why couldn't the tell they refs before the game to line up XPs at the 25 instead of the normal spot? It's just a preseason game, right? :evilgrin:

This is kind of pathetic but I sincerely hope Piñeiro and Fry both get to attempt 4 kicks a piece :lol:

That's actually a pretty good idea. The only thing I don't like about it is that the red zone offense doesn't get any work in but then again there's practice and value in keeping the playbook secret until the season starts.

You could score a td and then get a penalty or 2 to back up the PAT.

I mean, there's no rule specifically stating that you can't attempt an XP from 45 yards out.

Ugly, ugly game if you're a Bears fan. Mistakes galore. Other than the turnovers generated by the defense.... Yuck. Marvin Hall is a preseason headline if Tyler Bray could only throw a deep ball anywhere close to accurate.

I’m at a Rockies game so I didn’t watch it, but from looking at the box score it’s hard to read too much into a preseason game where the Bears not only didn’t play any of their starters, but most of their top backups too.

Adam Hoge's 10 things after the Giants game. He elucidates about Nagy's strategy to sit starters--including David Montgomery--and talks about the ups and downs of the game at MetLife stadium.

I do wonder what wabby has to say about Clifton Duck's gorgeous red zone pick. :-P

Coward looked like he got a hyperextended elbow in the game. :-(

Game highlights. (Mostly lowlights.)

Lucas did not look good at left tackle. Clemmings apparently played somewhere, but although I looked for him, I didn't see him. Did anyone?

Our backup QB situation is scary. Chase Daniel should not be having the problems he's having for someone who has been in Nagy's system as long as he has. I just don't think he can do it. Then he fucks up a snap in the end zone.

Bray is a third stringer so you gotta remember that but he can't hit shit with his throws.

I watched a quarter before I passed out. I was pleased that nobody of consequence got hurt. That's all that matters to me.
