When you write about the Bears and hear that Nick Foles is going to Periscope with Chase Daniel, you're going to watch it. Think of the content! It went on for almost 35 minutes, which would be objectively annoying if not for the fact that I deeply cherish anything that takes up half an hour of my day at this point.
The two friends talked about a whole bunch, and literally made *one* Bears reference the entire time. Here's the Bears' new backup QB/Week 3 starter, talking to someone who'd been in Chicago for two years, and they made exactly one Bears reference. Are you ready for it? Here is the only Bears reference made between Chase Daniel and Nick Foles:
"Yeah I went to Michigan State for my freshman year, then I transferred to Arizona and was at Arizona for four years ... I get to say Bear Down once again, which is really exciting."
That's it. That's the only Bears reference from any of the 2,100 seconds of conversation between Foles and Daniel, which I watched in its entirety. They go on to talk about so many other things, like bulletproof coffee and Foles' seven touchdown performance against the Raiders – so if either of those two things interest you, have at it:
Nick Foles: really excited to say Bear Down again.
One more pundit has ranked Nick Foles ahead of Mitchell Trubisky going into the 2020 NFL season.
Chris Simms has slowly been releasing his annual quarterback rankings on Twitter. On Monday, he got to Nick Foles at No. 31 overall.
That’s seven spots ahead of Trubisky, who came in at No. 38-- ahead of only Dwayne Haskins and Tua Tagovailoa.
Simms says Foles can make “big time throws” with support around him, and he should have plenty of that with Allen Robinson, Ted Ginn Jr., Anthony Miller and rookie TE Cole Kmet.
But first he’ll have to beat out Trubisky in the QB competition.
Still ahead of Foles on Simms’ list are Andy Dalton (No. 27), Ryan Fitzpatrick (No. 28) and the guy who took over his starting job in Jacksonville, Gardner Minshew (No. 30).

It’s one of the many words used to describe the masterpiece that was the 1985 Chicago Bears.
Chicagoans should know the pillars of this great work of art by now: Richard Dent. Walter Payton. Mike Ditka. Buddy Ryan. And so on.
But if, perhaps, you’re part of a younger generation who has never seen the pinnacle of that work, or if you simply want to recapture some of that glory on a bigger screen, you now have your chance.
NBC will re-air Super Bowl XX in its entirety this Sunday at 2:00 p.m. CT, the penultimate game in the network’s “Super Bowl Week in America’ series. Liam McHugh will speak with two members of the vaunted 46 Defense, Hall of Famers Mike Singletary and Dan Hampton.
The game between the Bears and New England Patriots on Jan. 26, 1986, was certainly the biggest blowout in Super Bowl history up to that point. The 46-10 final score was relatively tame. The Bears could have easily scored 60 that night in New Orleans.
But was it the most dominant performance on the game’s greatest stage? Well, we made a list.
