Rick Morrissey, Mark Potash and Jason Lieser discuss whether there’s any potential interest from the Bears in Colin Kaepernick. Are they the least likely team in the entire NFL to go against the current on that one? Plus, the simultaneous decline of the Bears (and Trubisky) and the Rams (and Jared Goff).

In the Pot-Cast, Rick asks Mark, “Were you a lonely child?” Mark also defends constantly laughing at his own jokes.
