Lol, two teams coming off OT games to play another game four days later. The NFL definitely cares about its players.

Anyone know if the Bears have any notable injuries?


Chicago Bears safety Quintin Demps suffered a broken arm in the 23-17 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers and will be out an indefinite period of time.

Disagree on King yesterday.  Ive watched King in college, saw every game he played. He is going to be good.  He gave up 10 catches to Green.   Yes, hes a rookie, but 10 catches is a lot for any corner.  King will only get better with experience.

  During the broadcast they showed Bulaga on the  sideline testing his ankle with another lineman pushing on him. He was checking to see if the ankle would hold up to being stressed. It was his right ankle he was working on.

I thought King looked pretty good as well. He gave up a lot of yardage, but he didn't look out of place. In just his third game, up against one of the NFL's elite, nearly uncoverable wideouts, he passed the eye test for me.

Agree. King more than held his own.

My age is such that few may not be able to relate, but playing HS football was a great time. To me it was the greatest sport in the World. Nobody cared about the color of a person's skin, (This was also during the late 60s and early 70s) only if they played their position so we could win. Outside of football, racial issues did exist and most of us playing football didn't pay attention to it. It didn't affect us since our HS was a small school and we hung around either with players from our team or kids our age figuring out how to get into enough trouble to avoid serious issues but enough to have fun. We read about how the pro players worked different jobs so they could make extra money during the off-season and we wanted to work those jobs too. Back in my HS days nobody cared about social issues. Never remember any arguments about black/white guys fighting about race, sometimes about lousy effort but never about the color of our skin.

Today, it's different. I've gone to HS games and see huge schools with all kinds of support groups making the game a production. (Band, cheerleaders, majorettes, flag/supplemental cheerleaders, etc.) It continues to college and of course the NFL it's a big business. Maybe I don't relate much to the players, and forget about relating to the owners. I never lived near the Pittsburg Steelers, yet they had RB, Rocky Bleier, a Vietnam Vet so they became my second favorite team after the Packers.

So now we have these demonstrations against equality by kneeling, sitting, or whatever during the National Anthem. I'm sorry to say this but OK you can do it but understand there will be ramifications. It's just another brick in the wall as far as I'm concerned. I watch the Pack, but it may get to the point where I just read what happened or worst just don't care anymore. Apathy is very dangerous to television, especially sports.

Getting these guys playing time while still winning is going to payoff big time in the second half of the season. Jones and king are gonna be just fine

If the players that wish to protest truly want to be brave and make a statement, then kneel and stay in the locker room after the kickoff.

I think its only a matter of time before the NFL requires both teams to stay in the locker room.  Thats how they did it before.  Then the NFL wanted the patriotic show and brought them out.

Vogel shanked one, but his 49-yarder that took the returner out of bounds inside the 10 later on was a thing of beauty at a key time.

As for Josh Jones: hell yeah. This is a fiery, inexperienced player who is going to make mental mistakes and probably get flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct once or twice in his career. I will absolutely take that if he can make game-changing plays like the ones we saw yesterday. He FLIES out there and looks like he could be a real weapon on the blitz. Dom Capers must be salivating watching the tape this morning.
