49ers look to trap Bears on ‘Monday Night Football’

The San Francisco 49ers host the Chicago Bears in a highly anticipated matchup among two of the league’s best teams. Both teams are coming off of disappointing performances in their prior outing; San Francisco is coming off of a frustrating tie against St. Louis, and Chicago lost a sloppy 13-6 slugfest against Houston. With Alex Smith out, it becomes especially important that the 49ers gets their ground game on track to make things easier on second-year QB Colin Kaepernick as he makes his first NFL start. Behind Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter, the 49ers lead the NFL averaging 170.2 rushing yards per game on a staggering 5.61 yards per carry, and look to exploit a Bears defense that has had […]

Recapping this trip: The Chicago preseason game edition

Last night’s preseason opener for the Broncos and Bears wasn’t pretty. They rarely are, and when teams keep their starters off the field like they did, the possibility for ugliness is even more likely. Still, it was the debut of Peyton Manning in a Broncos uniform, his first chance to work with his new team in a game setting. Clearly, that was the highlight. Want to review? Let’s hit on some highlights from our trip to Chicago… – I think I’m over the jarring feeling of seeing Manning in another uniform. Took a while, but I’ve grown accustomed to it.
