Lions-Bears Week 10 preview: The Mitchell Trubisky roast

It’s about time in the season in which he enjoyed a little schadenfreude.

The hashtag #WeOwnTheBears is dead. Thanks to a 2018 sweep at the hands of Mitchell Trubisky and Chase Daniel, the Detroit Lions went 0-2 against the Chicago Bears and ruined all of our fun.

Since then, things have been rough in Detroit. After a late defensive resurgence that season, the Lions regressed hard on that side of the ball in 2019. While the questions we had about Darrell Bevell and the Lions offense have been answered with a resounding HOLY CRAP, WHY HAVEN’T WE UNCORKED MATTHEW STAFFORD LIKE THIS FOR THE PAST FOUR YEARS, the defense has this team headed towards December irrelevancy at a frightening pace.

So it’s time to meme the crap out of the Chicago Bears again to save a little face.

Our First Byte preview this week welcomes our old friend Robert Zeglinski back to the show, and he’s steaming mad about the somehow-worse Chicago Bears. Specifically, Robert thinks Chicago needs to get rid of Trubisky—and possibly head coach Matt Nagy—as soon as possible, before they ruin the efforts of this defense.

We essentially try to preview Lions vs. Bears, but it eventually turns into a big Mitchell Trubisky roast, which—to be honest—is more than I could have ever asked for in this episode.

Tune in and enjoy.
