PFF has the Bears as the 3rd best defense in the league so far

3. CHICAGO BEARS
BEST-GRADED STARTER: Adrian Amos, S, 87.7

WORST-GRADED: Quintin Demps, S, 43.4

No unit has improved like the Chicago Bears have on defense. It still has some issues, but it has been undermined by their offense more than most teams, not to mention injuries. They have some impressive grades in coverage across the entire back seven, while the defensive front has been very stout against the run, even if the pass-rush remains a concern.

why would a game between two NFC teams be on CBS? did they do away with conference/network alignment and I didn't notice?

Sort of, ever since CBS got TNF, I believe.

Their site kinda sucks for navigation (at least when drunk).

You can respond in the other thread if it will cause controversy, but I'm honestly curious. Where do they rate the run game?

Not exactly. The past couple years they've had flexibility involving a couple games each season switching away team affiliation.

I can finally watch a Sunday morning Bears game at home. But, I won't be there. But, at least I can record it. Woohoo!

Kind of a haunting image that stuck with me from last year. His brain wants to quit.

Yeah, it's terrible. Great great player but he really should quit and hope it's already not too late for his brain.

No, I'm not giving away their stuff for free.

But I will include this segment in the spoiler:

The Athletic's content is pretty stellar. I really enjoy their writers, especially Cubs coverage.

But, in summary of the article: Eddie Goldman is good
