Chicago Bears Chairman George McCaskey spent 30 minutes on a video conference call with reporters Thursday talking about a variety of topics, including playing through the COVID-19 pandemic, social justice initiatives and Mitch Trubisky’s victory in the quarterback competition.
Along with addressing the recent controversial social media activity of Bears Hall of Famer Brian Urlacher, here are five things we heard from McCaskey.
1. McCaskey is ‘optimistic’ the Bears will have fans at Soldier Field at some capacity later this season.
The Bears announced last month that because of COVID-19 precautions they would start the season without fans with no time frame given for when spectators would be allowed to return.
