Five Bold Predictions For the Chicago Bears

Brandon Braasch | May 10th, 2020

The Bears did not hit very many bold predictions in 2019. David Montgomery didn’t rush for 1000 yards, Mitchell Trubisky didn’t take a step forward, and the defense regressed. They won four fewer games than they did in 2018. With that being said I expect that to change this season. Below are some bold predictions for the Bears 2020 season. Yes call me crazy but I see them as contenders to win the Super Bowl come February.

Chicago Bears Pre Free Agency Seven Round Mock Draft

Daniel Corrigan | February 24th, 2020

The Bears were a massive disappointment last season. After an NFC North title the year before, they failed to make the playoffs and Mitchell Trubisky took a big step back last season.

Chicago Bears 2019 Season Recap

Joey Ricotta | January 31st, 2020 The 2019 Bears season can be summed up by your choice of two words – disappointing failure or regression bug. Following the 2018 season, hopes were high. The Bears had a dominating defense and a progressing young offense with an offensive-minded coaching guru to navigate the ship. That was until all of those aforementioned positives took a step back this season. With an 8-8 record and third-place finish in the NFC North, it’s safe to say the Bears didn’t live up to the hype. However, there were some positives, along with some things to look forward to. Let’s take a look at what happened, the plan this offseason, and the expectations for next year. Continue reading

Brandon Braasch | December 5th, 2019 

Tonight’s game is huge for both teams as the Dallas Cowboys head into Chicago to face the Bears. The Bears are in a must-win scenario for the rest of the year while the Cowboys are currently one game up in the division with the Philadelphia Eagles. The chance at a potential playoff berth is on the line in this game. Here are my top players in this matchup.

TNF Fantasy Preview: Dallas Cowboys vs Chicago Bears

Mike Fanelli | December 5th, 2019 

Hopefully, everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving and found out Monday night that they made the playoffs. If you did be thankful for it and if you didn’t, it’s never too early to start preparing for next year, especially in dynasty leagues. With three weeks to go (unless you play in week 17 for some weird reason), every decision on who the start and who to sit is even more critical. To kick off the start of the fantasy playoffs we have a matchup between the Cowboys and Bears. Not only is this game critical to fantasy owners but to both franchises as they fight for the playoffs.

Detroit Lions Week 13 Recap- Elimination.

Tom Greene | December 2nd, 2019

Yes, you read that right. At 3-8-1, the Detroit Lions have become the first team in the NFC to be eliminated from playoff contention. This brings another two questions to my plate that came a lot sooner than I’d anticipated. “What’s the point of the last four games? What’s the point of these recaps now?”

Those questions will be answered in the three recap points. Simply put, the Lions went from a 2-0-1 team that showed some promise to a 3-8-1 team that’s looking for its identity again. Whether you’re a player, coach, front office member or fan, going 1-8 in a nine-game stretch is never fun. Let’s look at the three points.

Detroit Lions Week 12 Recap- Lions Red(skinned) in the Face

Tom Greene | November 25th, 2019 

Ever had a moment in your life where you’re so embarrassed to where you’re red in the face? Well, that’s the inspiration for this week’s title. Losing 19-16 to a one-win Washington Redskin team can make any team feel red in the face, and Lions fans have sadly seen this time and time again. Nastia Liukin posted the perfect mood in which Lions fans should be feeling, too.

Detroit Lions Week 10 Recap- Lions Find Chicago Overbearing

Tom Greene | November 11th, 2019

The Lions came into this game thinking that a Chicago offense lead by Mitchell Trubisky would at least put a band-aid on the problems that were on the defensive side. It turned out not to be true. While Trubisky only threw for 145 yards, the Lions secondary allowed him to throw for three touchdowns, and that’s all the Bears needed in a 20-13 victory over Detroit.

Detroit Lions Week 9 Recap- Gruden, Carr Raid Lions

Tom Greene | November 4th, 2019

The Lions traveled to Oakland in their last season at the Colosseum. The plan was to use an Air-Raid offense (like Arizona’s) to sink the Raiders’ ship in the Black Hole for one last time. Instead, Jon Gruden utilized Derek Carr to do exactly what Matthew Stafford was supposed to do- raid the secondary and win the game. Continue reading

Monday Night Football DFS Week Three: Bears vs Redskins

Brandon Braasch | September 23rd, 2019 

It is time for some Monday Night Football. This week will be a lot better than last week’s game. Let’s be honest last weeks game was brutal. Watching Trevor Siemian and then Luke Falk play quarterback was not exciting. This game might not be as exciting as watching Patrick Mahomes, but at least Mitchell Trubisky and Case Keenum will do more than just dump the ball off to the running back. In a game where I expect there to be a good amount of fantasy points put up, let’s see who the best players are on this slate.

NFL DFS – Week 1 Thursday Showdown Slate (GPP Picks)

Joey Ricotta | September 5th, 2019 

DraftKings really outdid themselves for this opening Thursday showdown slate. As soon as I went to the lobby, I saw, right at the very top of the page, the $10 entry $2.5 Million Kickoff Thursday Millionaire Tournament. It’s a 150 Entries Max Multi-Entry Tournament. The contest pays out the top 62,500 lineups with the top prize winning $1 million. What better way to kickoff the NFL season than a Chicago Bears versus Green Bay Packers rivalry game and a whole bunch of money up for grabs. So, as we will be doing all season long here at The Scorecrow, let’s dive into some of my favorite options for tonight’s game.

NFL Rookie Hype List: Hit or Miss?

Anthony Smith | August 5th, 2019

With 32 teams in the midst of regular-season preparation via training camp practices, we often see the hype for rookies spin out of control. It seems like every year without fail, NFL Twitter gets a hold of a couple clips of a corner making a nice interception, or a running back juking a linebacker and leaving them in the dust, and proclaims them as the next great thing. I’m here to look at seven players that were drafted in April that have seen a ton of chatter, and to give my predictions on if they will prove worthy from day one.

Be sure to follow all of the writers on twitter and ask any questions you may have regarding their answers. Without further ado, let’s get into it.

NFL Teams Poised for Long-Term Success

Anthony Smith | June 3rd, 2019

This exercise is meant to look at five teams across the NFL that should have long Super Bowl windows. This article will ignore teams that have found the fountain of youth (looking at you, New England) and teams that are unproven but have potential (i.e., the Ravens if Lamar Jackson makes a big leap).

Week 7 Streaming Options: QB, TE, D/ST, K, and Deep “Boom” Plays

Travis Finkel | October 18th, 2018

Has anyone noticed that my “boom” plays go boom a week or two after I feature them? So unfortunate in the timing. Albert Wilson, c’mon man! Went off this past week. And don’t even get me started on Mason Crosby. Recommended him last week, and he saw plenty of opportunities and missed everything. If he hit all 6 of his kicks including his extra point attempt he would’ve had 21 points. 21. From a kicker. Then he goes and scores 17 against the Niners the next week.

Each week I will base my picks on the format of a 12-team league with PPR scoring so be aware of this when taking my suggestions into consideration. I will only offer up players who are outside the Top 12 in the consensus weekly rankings from FantasyPros.

Early Round QBs are the Death Sticks in Fantasy Football.

Matt Woolsey | September 2nd, 2018

Remember in “Star Wars: Attack of the Clones,” when Obi-Wan walks into the bar and the drug dealer asks him if he wants some death sticks? Obi-wan tells him to go home and rethink his life. Drafting quarterback before round ten is like death sticks, you need to go home and rethink your life.

Chicago Bears: 2018 Season Preview

Robby Messer | August 29th, 2018

As opening day gets ever closer, we want to continue to look at what can be expected by teams for the upcoming season. The NFC North has plenty of potential to be a tough division, but there are many question marks, namely with the health and development of young players and players returning from injury. The Chicago Bears are hoping everything clicks for them in 2018, so they can, at least, put up a good fight.
