Despite getting off to a 2-0 start in the 2015 preseason, 1985 Chicago Bears players Jimbo Covert and Dennis McKinnon said the early wins mean little to them.


Share Events on The Cube“At the end of the day, I really don’t believe preseason has much of an impact on the season,” Covert said.

Share Events on The Cube“The third and fourth units are the ones that won those ball games for us in preseason,” McKinnon said. “A lot of those guys aren’t even going to make the squad. For a team that is supposed to be well-coached, way too many penalties.”

McKinnon and Covert pointed to the Bears’ struggles in 1985’s preseason as a reason for those following the Bears in 2015 to take the good start with a grain of salt.
