One thought on “Sports News 3/31/21-4/7/21

  1. Andy Dalton starting for the Bears is just a joke. They refuse to scout any real talent. Of course Andy Dalton has had many moments in his career he proved he can be an elite quarterback but last year he looked brutally bad. Bears need to fire everyone and start over. Pace and Nagy are a laughing stock at this point.
