Sunday 10/2 10:00AM – Game 4: Chicago Bears @ New York Giants

 

From Ronnie:

Hello Bears Fans!

Hello Bears fans! Here we are at 2-1 after beating the Texans last Sunday and gaining the most yards rushing since Walter Payton did it back in ‘84. For those of you not old enough to have seen Walter play, well he really was the best to ever play the running back position. He could block, catch, throw the ball…but most of all he could run! It was a thing of beauty, “Never Die Easy” as he would say. Payton would run you over if you were in his way. I could go on and on about him but what a performance by Herbert after coming in after Montgomery was injured, and thankfully he is day-to-day with an injury that wasn’t too serious. But Herbert was a big reason we won that game along with Roquan Smith’s performance and big interception at the end of the game to set up Santos for the game winning field goal. We Play the New York Giants this Sunday who are also at 2-1 after losing to Dallas Monday night. Another test for our run defense as we face a healthy Barkley at running back this Sunday and Quarterback Daniel Jones, who seems to be playing better this season. We are underdogs Sunday as we go on the road to the Meadowlands which so far has rain in the forecast. I still like our chances and – once Fields finds his groove and the passing game and running game are both doing well – our team will be dangerous to go up against. Defensively the more experience Gordon, Brisker and Robinson get, the more they will help this defense get better.

Sunday’s game is at 10:00am, so come on down to Windy City Pizza, Home of The Bay Area Bears Fan Club since ‘98 and watch our Bears get the W in the Meadowlands! Let’s have another big crowd like last Sunday, great all be together when we get the win.

Let’s Go Bears! Bear Down!

Thanks, Ronnie D.


From Trish:

Great to see so many old fans in the house, enjoying getting reacquainted after two long seasons! Also quite a few new faces, with several recent transplants from Chicago. Having Anne & Edwin back in the alcove, distributing Hershey Kisses at each TD – now that brought a smile😊.

Thanks to everyone who contributed prizes for the table: Matthew, Maggie & Dad, Scott and Ronnie. Did I miss anybody? Loved seeing so many happy winners. Don’t think I’ve ever seen Tom quite so excited as winning the Bears Cornhole set donated by Ronnie. Not enough that Ronnie takes time to select all the prizes for the season, he’s now digging deep in his garage for even more. Go Ronnie – we appreciate all that you do!

Anne & Edwin now hold the record for number of tickets purchased for Dan’s #1 Jersey! Thank you to everyone who bought tickets so far for this special prize – the Windy City team is very grateful.

Let’s go Bears – see you Sunday.

Bear Down! Sunday 9/25 10:00AM – Game 3: Chicago Bears @ Houston Texans

Hello Bears Fans!

Those Damn Packers got the best of us again! I will say this…that was a touchdown! The ball just crossed the line – could have been a game changer. I think the refs were from Wisconsin too, all the calls seemed to go against us – I’m just sayin’. When we play the Packers in December the outcome will be different with a big W! Great game by Montgomery, he came to play and it’s always fun to watch when he’s on his game. We are 1-1 and are at home this Sunday playing the Texans, coached by our former coach, Lovie Smith. The Texans have a young QB in Davis Mills who came into the draft with Fields in 2021 and struggled last week holding onto the ball. Let’s hope our Defense continues that trend and Peanut Punches that ball out! Another test for our Defense in the run game with rookie running back, Dameon Pierce, who looks pretty good. We just need to tackle better!

Thank you fans for coming to Windy City Pizza Sunday night, we had a good crowd. Looks like dry weather in Chicago on Sunday, so The Bears Offense should play fast and mix it up a little more, showing us what they’ve got. We need this win! Game time is 10:00a.m. Sunday, so come on down to Windy City Pizza and cheer on our Bears. By the way, good to see Hester, Kreutz, Briggs and Tillman as 2023 Hall of Fame Nominees. Nobody has ever been better than Hester, who was just so exciting to see play. Miss that man – he should get in this year.
See all of you Sunday.

Let’s Go Bears! Bear Down!

Thanks, Ronnie D.

It felt like old times with a full house on Sunday! Big thanks to all of you fans for being in the house – we know it’s tough to make it on Sunday evenings.

Let’s go Bears – see you Sunday.

Hello Bears Fans!
Our Bears weathered the first half storm against the 49ers and took over the game in the second half to get the big win…they made my week! Bears looked like they were having fun at the end too, great energy! The message Ryan Poles had for the Bears when he arrived was “And the last thing, the most important piece is we’re gonna take the North and never give it back!” It starts Sunday night against the Packers, time to own Rodgers now! I know it’s on T.V. but come on down to Windy City Pizza so we can all enjoy this one together. I’ve got a good feeling we are going to go into Green Bay and kick some bleep and get it done!

It was great seeing everyone again after two long years. Thanks to Trish and Bob for hosting us since 1998. Wow – time flies! We all appreciated the breakfast foods for the opening game. Always great to see new faces in the house and sad to see fans move away, but the Bears club is going strong and I’m excited to see where our Bears go from here. I look forward to enjoying the season with all of you.
We beat the Niners. Yea! now let’s take care of The Packers Sunday night at 5:20pm.

See you all at Windy City Pizza.
Let’s Go Bears! Bear Down!

Thanks, Ronnie D.

Thanks to all the fans who showed up for the opener – nothing like all being together to see the Bears beat the Niners!

In our fans’ typical generous spirit of camaraderie, we had many great prize additions to the raffle table on Sunday. Big thanks to Cathy (who was at Soldier Field on Sunday), Virgine & Gio (who drive in from Turlock!), and Mario, for donating those terrific prizes. Dan told me last week he was donating the #1 shirt and wanted to raffle it off with proceeds going to the house to help with Windy City’s NFL Sunday Ticket fee (the commercial fee is way more expensive than residential.) No wonder we’ve missed this mid-Western spirit for the past two seasons! So Dan arrived with shirt and his own raffle tickets – ready to go! This is Dan’s project and he’ll be selling tickets at all Sunday morning games for the next several weeks. Please take a photo of your ticket for when we do the drawing. And thanks, Dan, for this great idea.

Go Bears!
Thanks, Trish
