Ah, I knew it was coming. Don't like it, but the Bears were due. And since they are a great attendance team, thankfully it's a road game for them so they still get 8 in Soldier Field.

Also means Khalil Mack may never play a true road game against his former team, as the Bears aren't due to be the road team against the Raiders for another 8 seasons.

The Bears were scheduled to play at the Raiders so there will still be 8 regular season home games at Soldier Field.

The Bears played a preseason game at Wembley in 1986 and the Fridge scored a TD (can't find a full box, but the below article)

Yea, and Forte went 25-145 with a TD in a win over the Bucs, also at Wembley:

The fridge era bears started the concept of the nfl in London.

Also, I love this. Really hope it’s an early morning game. I might have to go.

Yeah, I misread it. Thought it said hopefully. I’m still half asleep. Forgive me.

I guess I will be saving money by not going to that game if the Raiders do choose to play in San Diego next year. It might be fun going to a Raiders/Chargers game with the Chargers being the visitors.

Dude made a 57 yard FG (that would have been good from 70) to send his team to the Superbowl in sudden death on the road. You can't be a great team and have a questionable kicker. Robbie Gould back would be nice, but he'd have to take a significantly lower salary than he'd demand on the open market. But honestly, I'd use a draft pick on that kicker from Utah, Matt Gay. Has a fantastic leg and made something like 5 of 6 over 50 yards in 2017 and I think a 58 yarder this year.


its good you see the errors in your ways. also, I think it was just a 56 yarder, and he's kicking in Utah. Can he hit those closer to sea level with consistency?

Aside from the obvious "we have a pro-bowl wr named JuJu", who would they not have grabbed the next year? My guess is that they wouldn't have signed Robinson, maybe, but I think its more likely they wouldn't have drafted Miller because they needed to trade for the pick.

I'm not mixing up the drafts at all, I'm just suggesting the outcome of last years draft could have been greatly affected if they had drafted JuJu the year before. That, or maybe the Robinson signing doesn't happen.

Probably wouldn't have either. Hypothetically, the WR group would have likely been

Juju
White (more prominent role)
Gabriel
Bellamy
Wims (bigger role)

And maybe a slot WR in free agency.

But the point was they probably should have had 4 pro bowlers from the 2017 draft. Juju was at worst the 2nd best player left on my board (I know the Bears don't use or even care about my board). And WR was a bigger need than TE.
