Bear & Balanced: Bears misfire in Motown

The Chicago Bears lost 41 to 10 against the Detroit Lions in what was their worst game of the season. Jeff and I pride ourselves on keeping an even keel when discussing the Bears, but this game was about 95% suck, which will make for a challenging show.

We may try to balance things out by taking a big-picture look at the team, but there are so many unknowns at this point for 2023 as well.

Either way, we’ll have some fun talking Bears and hanging out with the YouTube crowd, plus we’ll give away another $100 gift card.

Join us in the embed below or head over to our 2nd City Gridiron YouTube channel at 6:00 p.m. (CT), where we'll answer your questions after the show!

Here's our usual bullet point outline of Bear & Balanced.

  • Intro: We'll both share some general thoughts about the game.
  • The Portillo's Trench Tribute: This is our weekly pick for lineman of the game, and thanks to our friends over at Portillo's, we'll be giving out a $100 gift card to one lucky fan each week this season. WE GIVE $100 AWAY EVERY WEEK, SO TUNE IN FOR YOUR CHANCE!
  • Sweet Tweets: We're both active on social media — so be sure you're all following us at @gridironborn & @wiltfongjr and we highlight one Twitter interaction/Tweet each week.
  • Caught up in a numbers game: This segment has us featuring one number/statistic that we found interesting from the game.
  • The Fields Report: We talk about quarterback Justin Fields before we take our commercial break.
  • The 3 Bears: You all know the story of the Three Bears, so in this porridge-themed portion of the show, we give our picks for the Bear that was hot, the Bear that was cold, and the Bear that was just right in the game against the Lions.
