Welcome to The Full Go! Jason opens the show by recapping the Bears’ 20-17 victory over Cincinnati (0:30). Justin Fields got the bulk of the reps following Andy Dalton’s knee injury. We saw some inexperience, but we also got a good look at the first-round pick’s upside. It was very much a typical Bears victory, as the defense was able to carry the team behind Roquan Smith’s pick-six. The Bears improve to 1-1 on the season with Cleveland on deck for Week 3.
Jason opens up the voicemail line at (773) 359-3103 (16:00). Where does Luis Robert rank among Chicago baseball’s best prospects? Jason also receives a call from “Vince in Detroit” who may have a counterpoint to “Bill in L.A.” and his Celtics bias.
Jason gets a former player’s perspective on today’s Bears game with Anthony Herron (31:00). Anthony is an analyst for Fox-32 Chicago and SiriusXM and played in the NFL for Detroit, Atlanta, and Green Bay. Herron begins by focusing on the defensive side of the ball, the difference it made in today’s victory, and how it was deployed by new defensive coordinator Sean Desai. Herron breaks down what Desai did that was so effective and how he was able to get production from guys who struggled in Week 1. As we await Dalton’s status for Week 3, Herron explains why it still might be OK if Justin Fields doesn’t start against Cleveland. Finally, Herron explains why David Montgomery may be the best player on the field and how he became one of the Bears’ more dynamic playmakers.
