Bears starters 'good amount' preseason opener

BEARS STARTERS TO PLAY 'GOOD AMOUNT' IN PRESEASON OPENER

AUG 4, 2022  (10H24)      V. CARBONNEAU
Bears senior writer Larry Mayer reported that Coach Matt Eberflus revealed that starters on both sides of the ball will play in the Bears' preseason opener against the Chiefs Aug. 13 at Soldier Field.

"The number of plays we're still working on," Eberflus said Wednesday after practice at Halas Hall. "But we do want them to get a good amount."

Eberflus feels that it's especially important for the starters to play because the Bears have a young team and are installing new schemes on offense and defense.

"We need to play these guys," he said. "We have to see what they look like when they're playing in a football game."

"Philosophy-wise, I think it depends on your team, I really do," he said. "I think you have to assess your football team, where it is. Could it be a different spot in years to come? Yeah, I think it can be. I don't think it's a hard and fast rule where I'm playing this many plays in the first one, the second one and the third one. You have to assess your team, where it is, and then you go from there."

I love to hear that and I can't wait o see real-live action!!!
