Preseason Opening Day Game Thread & Twitter Fan Responses

| August 8th, 2014


I posed a simple question to DaBearsBlog’s followers on the Tweet machine. What do you, as a Bears fan, hope to see during Bears 1st preseason game tomorrow night? 

My favorite answer came from @sjaskovi:

I hope to see none of the starters.

But while I have begun notorious for my preseason cynicism I will admit the Bears do need to see SOMETHING over the course of this preseason.

(1) They need to see a backup quarterback emerge from the Jordan Palmer v Jimmy Clausen competition. Anytime either man is on the field this August I think every Bears fan should be paying awfully close attention.

(2) They need to see the ball long-snapped to their punter and holder accurately. This is the only “starter” I want to see in all four preseason games.

I disagree with the assessment that anything happening defensive tonight has any relevance but here are some more responses I liked.


who lines up on various special teams units to get clues who will fill out the back end of the roster.


Something that resembles an NFL safety wearing a blue jersey. Two would be even better.


I want to see Jordan Lynch make a run for RB2.

really interested in seeing all the young linebackers play and see who stands out the most and plays the run well

Enjoy the game. Thoughts, as always, will be posted by morning. Here’s hoping every player walks off the field healthy. Nothing, and I mean nothing else, ACTUALLY matters.
