As most of you know, this site does not produce content for content’s sake or for clicks. And as you’ll see with our upcoming sponsor announcements, money doesn’t drive the DBB omnibus. From Labor Day to New Year’s there is new stuff here every single day. This time of year? Not so much.
But I have a few thoughts…
#1 Jared Allen may be the key to the 2015 Bears defense. The more I think about this group heading into the season, the more I wonder just what Vic Fangio and John Fox and going to do with Allen. Is he going to have his hand on the ground? Is he going to be a stand-up outside linebacker? If I were the defensive brain trust I would never stop moving Allen around the defensive front and install a singleminded: get the quarterback.
#2 When ESPN’s Jeff Dickerson, who I generally like, writes the Bears have a “quarterback crisis”…I mean, c’mon. The Bears have a good quarterback. Is he a great one? No. What they have is hardly a crisis and that language is being used to incite the Cutler supporters out there. Dickerson is better than that. It’s a Haugh move.
#3 Sometimes I wonder if the complete lack of expectations for the 2015 Bears might not be the best thing for them?
