I hope Bears fans’ blood pressures have come down to normal by now.  What an insane win (frankly, what an insane Lions loss) in Week 1 at Ford Field.

I watched the condensed version of the game last night — I knew the outcome and I still couldn’t believe what I was watching.  I might be crazy enough to put this comeback on par with their legendary comeback against Arizona in 2006.  (I still vote the Arizona game, but come on.  The drama was almost equally wild.)  And yeah, I put it out for a vote.

Regardless, the Bears are 1-0 and preparing for their home opener against the New York Giants this week.  The Giants lost to the Steelers on Monday Night Football.  The Bears defeated the Giants at Soldier Field last year in a pretty ugly game.  The Bears are the better team, but will they play like it?

With that, let’s reach into this week’s Bears Mailbag.  Thanks to everyone who submitted questions — always appreciate the participation.  Follow me on Twitter @DhruvKoul to continue the conversation.


(Author’s Note — An update as of 9/18 — ESPN’s Dan Graziano reported that it appears the Bears are looking at Robinson’s AAV of around $15-16M, whereas Robinson is seeking closer to $18-19M.  It seems minor, but the reality is the holdup is likely related to length of contract and guarantees.  That’s where the bulk of negotiation is likely happening, especially with the uncertain cap and QB situation.)
