I just want to know....Is Ryan Pace Fired Up?!!!

Who does he think is in the best shape of his life....?

Is he really thinking that the Bears are really mastering Nagy's playbook?

Time will tell

Bear Down!

10 takeaways from Bears' second week of voluntary OTAs

1-Fields continues to impress with his command, but he did struggle with QB-center exchanges

2-Expect a lot more Darnell Mooney in 2021

“They told me that I exceeded expectations and that I played very well,” he said. “To me, I didn’t exceed everything I wanted to accomplish. Going into Year 2, I want to be more of a threat to defenders and more of an asset to this team.”

3-Cole Kmet's role will continue to expand in 2021

4-Andy Dalton struggled during 7-on-7 drills

5-Bears coaching staff will be fully vaccinated before training camp

6-Mooney will benefit from Fields’ deep ball

“It’s a beautiful ball, man,” Mooney said.

7-Dalton's role in Fields' development

For now, it’s Dalton that is the starter. But he’s also serving an important role as mentor for the young Fields.

8-Damien Williams liked the fit with Bears

9-Tashaun Gipson joined Roquan Smith as defensive starters at voluntary practice

10-Mooney addressed Jalen Ramsey drama

When Mooney was asked who he was most looking forward to playing, he once again brushed it off and looked toward the big, long-term goal.

“Not really, man,” he said. “I’m just looking to [winning] every game that we have and I’m looking forward to winning the Super Bowl this year.”

It sounds like Mooney is content with letting his play do the talking, which is just fine.

Eddie Goldman Was a No-Show at Tuesday’s Mandatory Minicamp

June 15, 2021, by Luis Medina Chicago Bears

You gotta give credit where it’s due: Chuck Pagano’s defense playing as well as it did in 2020, particularly against the run, is impressive considering one of his biggest key cogs was out of action. Moreover, said cog was never in the mix to begin with, as Eddie Goldman opted out of playing in 2020.

But to not see Goldman at mandatory minicamp sounds some alarms:

So … not only was this an unexcused absence, it seems unexpected, too. As Sean Hammond of Shaw Media pointed out on June 2, Nagy told reporters he spoke with Goldman and that the nose tackle was at the Halas Hall facility at some point. However, Goldman was not spotted at practice at the time. Knowing that Nagy has been in contact with Goldman since at least early June and that he still has an unexcused absence from mandatory minicamp is concerning. Not just because he was absent from a mandatory practice. But also because Goldman opted out of playing in 2020, citing concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Opting out last year was understandable. Not showing up for mandatory minicamp a year later is concerning.

Usually, my mind drifts to wonder if there is a contract dispute afoot. But, alas, Goldman still has three years left on his deal that pays him an AAV of $10.51 million. It’s tough to imagine money is an issue at this point. Nevertheless, Goldman didn’t show up to mandatory minicamp and I have my concerns.

Chicago’s defense needs Goldman anchoring the middle. They need Goldman all in and ready to roll whenever training camp begins. Otherwise, we’ll be back to asking about how this unit can work around not having the big man in the middle. Goldman eats space, makes tackles, opens up things for playmakers on the edges and among the linebackers. He does plenty of things that don’t go in box scores, all while helping others rack up stats. There’s something to be said about the value of a guy who does the dirty work inside.

For what it’s worth, the Bears did well with John Jenkins and others manning the middle. But with Jenkins leaving in free agency and rookie seventh-round pick Khyiris Tonga representing the next available option, it would behoove the Bears to have Goldman in the fold. But if Goldman has any apprehension to returning, then the Bears need to be ready to hit up the waiver wire.

I reckon the good news is that Nagy doesn’t believe there is any doubt Goldman will be around for training camp.

“We fully expect him to be there,” Nagy said.

I guess we’ll see.

Goldman is becoming my least favorite Bear at the moment. What is this kids problem? He sits out last season, okay, understandable. But to sit out now reeks of a money grab. Pace better be on the waiver wire looking for a replacement. Where's John Jenkins when you need him? Another year of Bilal trying to play Nose is not gonna get it done.
