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.
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.
