Bears' new unofficial all-time sack leaders dating back to 1960

 

While sacks didn’t become an official NFL stat until 1982, we’re getting a look at sacks dating back to 1960 thanks to Pro Football Reference. Still, sacks before 1982 are an unofficial stat, but it’s cool to get a glimpse at how the sacks leaders stack up when you include sacks dating back 12 more years.

Richard Dent remains Chicago’s all-time sack leader with 124.5, and Steve McMichael’s 92.5 sacks remains the second-most in franchise history. But there was some shake-up in the top five after that.

Dan Hampton moved up to third all-time with an additional 25 sacks from 1979-1981. Doug Atkins, who played from 1955 to 1966, is now fifth all-time with 64.5 sacks.

Chicago's all-time leading receivers in Bears history

 

Allen Robinson is entering his fourth season with the Bears, where he currently sits 15th on Chicago’s all-time receivers list. But following another big season, Robinson has a chance to continue to climb the list.

If Robinson strings together his third straight 1,000-yard season — which isn’t a stretch considering what he’s done with poor quarterback play for the last two years — he’d skyrocket on list going from 15th all-time to around to potentially passing running back Matt Forte for seventh all-time.

Just another reason why Bears fans are eager for the franchise to lock him down long-term, although that’s not going to happen anytime soon.

While Robinson’s future in Chicago beyond 2021 doesn’t look good, he’s close to becoming the Bears’ all-time leading receiver, where he needs just 1,909 yards to surpass Johnny Morris.

List in the link. 

Have to admit, there has been a lot of long standing records on the ofensive side of the ball starting to get surpaced lately. Maybe the Bears are finally maturing. 

Train like you are 2nd, but play like you are 1st.

I wondered how long it would take before someone did this calculation. Games have been taped or filmed for decades for broadcast and for the coaches. I wonder if it was not done sooner, because of the time it would take, or if it might be unfair as some game tape could be missing?

Pretty sure Tackles for Loss and Sacks have been happening since football has been played. A sack is nothing more than a TfL in a throwing situation. Which brings up another point. When a QB runs and gets TfL does it go done in the books as a sack or a run stop? Makes me wonder about all those times Urlacher stopped Vick, back in the day.

Bears Preseason Games to be Aired on NFL Network

The NFL Network released their preseason schedule. Which consists of the Bears being featured for all three weeks of the preseason.

On Monday afternoon, the NFL issued a memo in regards to their NFL Network preseason broadcast schedule. Of course, its great news for Chicago Bears fans. Especially for those outside of the Chicagoland area.

The NFL network will air all three of their preseason games this coming August. Of course, FOX32 Chicago will provide the local broadcast as well for those within the Chicagoland broadcast zone.

Preseason Schedule

Here is a look at the Bears preseason schedule:

 

WeekDateTimeOpponentBroadcast

18/1412pm CDTvs. Miami DolphinsFOX32 Chicago/NFLN

28/2112pm CDTvs. Buffalo BillsFOX32 Chicago/NFLN

38/286pm CDTat Tennesse TitansFOX32 Chicago/NFLN

Consequently, the first preseason game between Chicago and Miami will mark Justin Fields‘ first game in a Bears uniform. Notably, this game will be fresh off a joint practice between the two teams.

However, the second preseason game between the Bills and Bears will be of significance as well. It will be the return of Mitchell Trubisky to Soldier Field. Trubisky will likely play majority of the snaps in this game.

Nevertheless, the Bears-Titans matchup in Week 3 will be the final tune up game of the preseason. This game will consist of a bunch of guys on the bubble looking to finalize their spot on the 53-man roster.

Change in Schedule

The NFL expanded the regular season schedule from seventeen weeks to eighteen weeks starting in 2021. As a result, the preseason has been shortened from four games to three games. Now, whether the illustrious week three dress rehearsal game will remain in place or be pushed up to week two remains to be seen.

Overall, Bears fans all over the country will get to see enough of the “Monsters of the Midway” being led by their brand new, rookie quarterback. Even with one less preseason game, the Bears will be national for all three games.

I am glad to see you guys finally getting a fair chance to see the Bears. I am lucky?? that I pay for the privilege to see whatever games I want, when I want. So can you, just leave the continental United States and sign up for Game Pass....j/k

The NFL just informed clubs that if a game cannot be rescheduled during the 18-week season in 2021 due to a COVID outbreak among unvaccinated players, the team with the outbreak will FORFEIT and be credited with a loss for playoff seeding, per sources.

Massive implications.

Bears are signing tight end Jesse James

Posted by Charean Williams on July 25, 2021, 8:41 PM EDT

The Bears have reached agreement on a one-year contract with free agent tight end Jesse James, Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports.

James will compete for a job behind Cole Kmet and Jimmy Graham.

The Lions released James on March 11, and he has remained a free agent since.

James appeared in all 32 games for Detroit the past two years after signing as a free agent in 2019. The Lions drafted T.J. Hockenson in the first round the same year, limiting James to 16 catches for 142 yards in his first year with the team and 14 receptions for 129 yards and two touchdowns last year for the Lions.

James, 27, spent his first four seasons with the Steelers, making 120 receptions for 1,189 yards and nine touchdowns in 56 games with 36 starts.

I am good with this signing. James is known as a blue collar, lunch pail kind of TE. A good blocker that can also catch a football. 6'7" and 250 lbs. He causes problems for defenses.
