Chicago: One too many QB1s


The GIST: We can’t believe we’re saying this, but the Bears actually gave us something to smile about on this fine Monday morning.

🏈Bears: After years (and years and years and years) of disappointing quarterbacks, the Monsters of the Midway might finally have a star under center. General manager Ryan Pace made what some are calling the steal of the draft, maneuvering to pick former Ohio State quarterback (QB) Justin Fields 11th overall. We are SO pumped.

  • Fields is coming off a stellar career at Ohio State, having led the Buckeyes to the CFP National Championship game earlier this year. Known for his accuracy — especially when throwing on the move — and his run game, we’re just as excited as he is to have him in the Windy City.
  • Less enthused is Andy Dalton, the veteran QB the Bears acquired on a one-year contract in March, who was under the impression he’d be QB1. *wink wink* 

⚾️Cubs: The Cubbies’ three-game weekend series versus the Cincinnati Reds was eventful to say the least, with a bench-clearing brawl, a scary collision and a 10-inning, high-scoring nail-biter.  

  • Drama aside, the Cubs dropped two games against the Reds and fell to last place in the NL Central in the process. Fewer fireworks, more results, please.

⚾️White Sox: The Reds aren’t quite done with Chicago teams yet, though: they’re hosting the hot-and-cold White Sox tomorrow and Wednesday. Let’s hope the South Siders can do better against the Reds after going one-for-three against Cleveland this weekend.
