I’ll be honest, it took a couple cups of coffee to muster up the strength to put the Bears’ 27-10 loss back up on the screen for this week’s rewatch. I groaned, sighed and hit play. Deciding to attempt the near-impossible, I went (desperately) searching for the consolation prizes, silver linings if you will. I found some, but wish there...

Welcome to my weekly Chicago Bears Redzone Report where I take a deep dive into every red zone possession on both sides of the ball. A team’s success or failure inside the red zone has a strong correlation to its overall performance. In many ways, it’s do or die inside the 20. I want to take some time every week...

LAKE FOREST — When Darnell Mooney takes the field on Sunday against the 49ers, there is a good chance he will see someone with the same name lined up across from him.

Then Fields hit Darnell Mooney for five more yards on the play immediately after. Two plays later on a first-and-20, Fields threw an accurate pass to his left to Dante Pettis before he came out of his break, good for 14 yards. On the following play to his right, Cole Kmet caught an 8-yard pass to again give the offense another set of downs. Then finally Fields hit Ryan Griffin on a 22-yard strike for a touchdown. On the 7-play, 80-yard drive, five…

The Bears’ starting offense looked all too familiar in the 19-14 win over the Kansas City Chiefs at Soldier Field on Saturday  In three series for the first-team unit, the offense ran 18 total plays for 78 yards and scored no points. Justin Fields had pressure in his face and was sacked two times. There were some drops. Oh, and the referress are still not protecting Fields from late hits. A lot didn’t go right for the starting offense against the Chiefs, and these issues can’t just be ignored, but it’s just Game 1 of the preseason. Bears coach Matt Eberflus was encouraged by what he saw from Fields and the first-team offense. “I thought it was good. I thought…
