Finishing with a 12-4 record and atop the NFC North, the 2018 Bears were one of the most exciting teams Chicago has had in years. The city is still buzzing off exciting moments like the prolific “Club Dub” and the heartbreaking “double doink” finish of the season. With everybody across Chicago talking about the team, we even found that many of our favorite artists were also giving their hot takes on the team. With today marking the opening night of the 100th NFL season, we decided to get ahead of the game and ask Isaiah G, Monster Mike, Kiraly Payne and Stix to give us their predictions on the season ahead.

Monster Mike: 

1. Favorite player on the current team and why?

Kyle Long because he’s tough, tenured and he deserves it. And he follows me.

2. If you could add one former bear to this current team, who would it be?

I wanna say [Brian] Urlacher, but I’m more worried about our kicker so Robbie Gould.

3. Give us your favorite go-to Bears jersey to wear either currently or in the past.

54 Urlacher, always. Second is William Perry from my friend DJ.

4. What is your favorite all-time Bears moment? 

Mike Brown in 2001, it’s what made me a Bears fan.

5. What is your record prediction for the bears this year ? 

15-1 or 11-5, I can’t pick.

Kiraly Payne:

1. Favorite player on the current team and why?

Favorite player is Eddie Jackson or Allen Robinson. Both beasts.

2. If you could add one former Bear to this current team, who would it be?

I would easily add Devin Hester back. Most exciting bear ever.

3. What is your favorite all-time Bears moment? 
My favorite Bears moment is Hester running back the opening kickoff in the Super Bowl, even though we lost.

4. What is your record prediction for the bears this year ? 

I’m thinking we’ll be 11-5.


Stix:

1. Favorite player on the current team and why?

[Khalil] Mack. Obvious reasons. He’s a monster and made us immediate contenders, but close call to Eddie Jackson.

2. If you could add one former bear to this current team, who would it be?

Brian Urlacher with Roquan Smith no ones scoring on that defense

3. Give us your favorite go-to Bears jersey to wear either currently or in the past?

Joe Freshgoods’ Nike collab Walter Payton
4. What is your favorite all time bears moment? 

The 2006 comeback win against the Cardinals.

5. What is your record prediction for the bears this year ? 

12-4.
