For Day 2 of Chicago Bears training camp, roughly 200 fans showed up to Halas Hall to watch their beloved team practice. This is a far cry from what fans were used to in years past when the team held training camp in Bourbonnais. In 2019, the team saw a 50.8% jump in attendance with nearly 60,000 fans in attendance over the course of the camp. This was a jump of over 20,000 from 2018.

Unfortunately, the switch to Halas Hall is not as fan-friendly and with COVID-19 regulations still in place, fan attendance is very limited. Even when the team is coming off a strong year as they did in 2018 (look at the huge jump in attendance), fans will struggle to support the team in the same capacity. Instead, a lottery will be used and attendance will be drastically limited.

The good news is, Bear Goggles On has ways to keep fans connected, and The Chicago Audible is one of the most important ways of doing this.

The Chicago Audible has media access to this year’s Chicago Bears camp

In this episode of The Chicago Audible, Nicholas Moreano gives you his top takeaways from the second day of training camp.

For quarterback Andy Dalton, Moreano details how his leadership was on full display in Thursday’s open practice. Moreano also provides his analysis on Justin Fields’ second day of practice and highlights a few plays he made in the 7-on-7 and team periods.

Also in the episode are detailed accounts of how some of the new wide receivers are looking so far in practice. With Anthony Miller no longer on the team (traded to the Texans), players like Marquise Goodwin and Damiere Bryd have been getting some quality looks on Day 2 of camp.

On the defensive side of the ball, Moreano focused on how the battle is looking between Kindle Vildor and Desmond Trufant for the second corner spot. Also, how have Duke Shelley and Thomas Graham Jr. looked at nickel corner? Moreano highlights how the defensive backs fared against the wide receivers.
