Although the summer Chicago events schedule is in full
swing, with Cubs games, White Sox games and plenty of concerts lined up, it’s
not too early to start thinking about Chicago Bears football. The first preseason home game is on August 15
against the Chargers with a second game on August 29 versus the
visiting Browns. The regular season home
opener is Sunday, September 8 against another Ohio team, the
Bengals, with a 12:00 noon kickoff.
The addition of Martellus Bennet will take some of the heat
off Brandon Marshall and provide a much needed receiver option for Cutler. Marshall managed 1,500 yards and 11 TDs
despite mostly double coverage last year, so if Cutler can stay vertical,
Marshall and Bennet could each be in for 1,000+ yard seasons.
However, there are still big concerns for the Bears this
year. Alshon Jeffery and Earl Bennett
have been sporadic wide receivers at best and injuries are a concern for both
players. Cutler has only played 16 games in three of his seven seasons.
Having McCown and Matt Blanchard as backups
could end up being a problem. Finally, a
tough schedule has the team facing many pass happy offenses this year and the
secondary will need to create turnovers to keep the Bears in games.
Early predictions have Dallas, Carolina and Pittsburgh as
potential comeback teams making the playoffs this year. Can the Bears be added to that list? Fans know that win or lose, Soldier Field is
the place to be on Sunday Funday! Soldier
Field is known for great tailgating.
Fans pull out all the stops with tents, grills, and plenty of pre-game
fun. The Designated Driver Program
allows fans to sign up at any of the eight Fan Services booths at Soldier Field.
DD’s receive a complimentary soft drink
and are entered into a drawing for a trip to the Super Bowl or Pro Bowl. Each game one lucky fan is selected as the
Designated Driver of the Game and wins $50 to spend in the Bears Pro Shop!
Another way to enjoy Bears games at Soldier Field safely is
to take limousine or party bus transportation from Southtown Limousine. Chicago limo rental from the suburbs to
Soldier Field begins at $160 round trip for up to 10 people. Party buses come in a variety of sizes for
