Ep. 238: Last-place Bears? No shot.
On this episode of the Under Center Podcast, JJ Stankevitz, John "Moon" Mullin and Cam Ellis react to some of the crazier predictions various outlets have for the Bears this season. First, the guys respond to Phil Simms calling Chase "Daniels" one of the worst backup QBs in the NFL (0:44). If Trubisky goes down, Moon says there are several players who can step up and take over a game so that Daniel won't have to lead the Bears to wins himself (4:23). JJ even thinks Daniel is better than several QBs that have started for the Bears (06:45).
What positions have the best/worst depth heading into this season (07:50)? And who are some Bears depth players that would be starting if they played on other teams (12:45)?
Then, the crew reacts to a Sports Illustrated prediction that has the Bears going 7-9 and finishing last in the NFC North (14:08). Plus, the fact that they had the Bears DBs ranked 17th in the league is simply preposterous (16:25). Moving on to Trubisky talk, JJ isn't buying the idea that Trubisky will make more mistakes in Year 2 of Nagy's offense (19:50).
Finally, the guys share their thoughts on Andrew Luck's surprise retirement (23:33), and Moon compares the news to when former Bears linebacker Bryan Cox opted to have thumb surgery mid-season in 1996 to avoid long-term damage to his hand (28:06).
