The time to get out is now. 

I need to emotionally detach from the Chicago Bears and I have taken the following steps:

  • cancel ESPN+ subscription
  • cancel NFL.com replay subscription
  • unsubscribe to The Chicago Audible podcast, Under Center podcast and T Formation podcast
  • unfollow all but 2 of 40+ chicago bears and NFL related commentators on twitter
  • unfollow Chicago Bears official twitter, facebook and Instagram accounts
  • will not watch the remainder of the NFL conference playoffs
  • will not purchase Bears gear for myself
  • will not purchase any tickets for the 2021 season 
  • will not watch live Bears preseason games in 2021
  • will not attend Bears training camp, if permitted by health guidelines
  • will not purchase any NFL analysis related to the NFL draft


I will retain these connections to the Bears

  • follow Adam Hoge and Adam Jahns on twitter & listen to podcast
  • watch the super bowl (please g-d, do not let GB win again)
  • remain engaged on footballsfuture once per week

 

The only way I am willing to engage further with the bears is a miracle of hope at the QB position such as getting a rookie QB without trading a future R1 pick or landing Watson/Dak and I don't need to invest any time / emotional energy for that to happen or to hear about the details

LOL

I've been hearing this from fans for decades now and they're still here. 

Let's be honest here, nobody is going anywhere.  Come September you will still watch the Bears. It's just what we do as fans.

I'm not getting out, I am just getting less invested. I'll still watch the games, post here, and follow some of the news. But I will not let it consume me like it used to, after all why should the Bears ineptness ruin a day for me since I can't control them.

Bingo this is exactly how I feel. My boss is a die-hard Cowboys fan and has similar apathy for his team. He said he use to live and die by the Cowboys and now he watches but that same obsessive fire is gone.

I think that is pretty sad, but also where I'm headed too.
