Right now, football is the furthest thing from my mind. Our nation is melting down before our eyes. We have a hugely critical election coming in November, we still have a virus out there, racial protests with rioting and destruction is hitting everywhere, our economy is in terrible shape with millions and millions unemployed and the ignorant Democrats want to get rid of our police! These are unprecented times and there's just no room to even begin to think about a game....I've spent a lot of my time praying.

i can't disagree with anything you said.  But I think America needs sports now.  Assuming it can be brought back somewhat safely.   Everyone and especially the media is so hyper focused on all these events of the day.  We need a bit of a distraction now and then to keep our sanity.  Not minimizing any of what's happening today but we could use a break.  It's all just so depressing - it's like every day is a Monday after a loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Turn off the social media, the "news" and live a day without them.... for some folks its hard but life is so much better without all the negativity flying around (both real and perceived).

We think times are bad (and they have been better for sure) but its never as bad as the "media" wants to portray it. Remember "if it bleeds it leads."......

Life is good. Enjoy it. We'll all know the other side of life soon enough ! :D

I'm taking your advice tonight - no  CNN and no Fox News.

I do agree sports is important and man, do we ever need distraction from this year. I do hope football is played and things settle down a lot between now and then but with this election I think it's actually going to get....worse....sadly.

I agree, I would not be surprised to see things get worse. People talk of a civil war, almost as if one has already started.. If and when the season starts, if there is kneeling, count me out.. I would be willing to bet that the kneeling will be just the beginning. They will look to politicize the NFL to fit the leftist agenda. I've done without sports for 4 months, and every day that goes by I learn to miss it less and less..

You might as well start making alternate plans...I'm betting there's more kneeling than not kneeling.

If they would set aside a minute of silence for kneeling before or after the anthem I think they would get wide support.

Kneeling during the anthem will always be a problem.

In a way, it really has already started.

Damn, lots of big names out there, especially guards.

I'm thinking we need to sign a backup OLB.  Not to confident that Mingo (look at his recent numbers) and the 5th rounder Gipson are viable backups for Mack and Quinn.

The personnel upfront right now for the Bear don't inspire confidence for a playoff run IMO. The Bear needs to get some more horses up front.

You mean O-line?

I think we'll be OK at guard with Ifeddi.  Leno has to return to 2018 form when he made the pro bowl.  Massie is OK - you'd like  get more out of him as a run blocker.  He's here this year due to his contract but probably not next year for the same reason.
