Aaron Leming joins the latest edition of the podcast as we preview the Chicago Bears season!
In the latest edition of the BGO Podcast, we chat with Aaron Leming from Bear Report and other Bears’ outlets. Aaron is a tremendous Bears’ insider who has broken several big stories before the big boys. He has the pulse of the team and a great football mind to boot.
Aaron chats with BGO about the Khalil Mack trade and how it impacts the defense, the new weapons on offense and what to expect from Mitch Trubisky. Plus, plenty more including predictions on the season and the game coming up against the Green Bay Packers!

There’s plenty of great info from Aaron there, but to me, the best stuff is him just talking about the defense with Mack and how he can impact the other positions. He will absolutely elevate the other players on that defense. Every single player on that unit is now better because of the presence of Mack. The amount of single-teams that Akiem Hicks and Eddie Goldman (and Leonard Floyd) are going to face now will make that significantly better defenders. This defense is going to be exciting.
Offensively, Aaron is cautiously optimistic. Everything relies on the right arm of Mitch Trubisky, so until we seem him truly break out, it’s hard to know exactly what this offense is. Even is Mitch is okay, the offense will be okay. As long as Mitch isn’t Blaine Gabbert bad, the offense should be good enough to win them some games with the defense shutting down opponents.
