Aldo Gandia, the host of Bears Barroom Radio, welcomes the masterminds of Bears Hour Live, Phil Ottochian and Lorin Cox, the podcast and You Tube video series. The three talk about various topics including this year's crop of safeties, Phil's love of Jabrill Peppers, the possibilities of Mike Glennon being a true No. 1 quarterback and much more. As always, there are juvenile jokes for adults only.
Bears Barroom Radio continues to prove that no other podcast dedicated to Chicago Bears football combines respected knowledge with raw humor to great effect. This week the main topic of discussion is Ryan Pace's third free agency with the Bears. How did he do? Which signing impressed? Which didn't? Is Pace demonstrating a well coordinated plan to free agency? Those are among the topics the guys discuss.
Those guys are:
Host Aldo Gandia started free agency hoping for a miracle. He got Mike Glennon and a bunch of D-list veterans. He asked Tampa Bay sportswriter Gil Arcia for help in getting a better understanding of who Glennon is and could be. He then talked with Chicago sports writer and radio host Ross Read to get his thoughts on Ryan Pace's approach to free agency.
Siafa Lewis, lead sports anchor for WMAQ NBC5 Sports, joins Aldo Gandia to talk about the departure of Jay Cutler and the (likely) arrival of Mike Glennon. The two also discuss Alshon Jeffery and the Bears "rebuilding" plans.
Siafa also shares his opinion on former Bears' receiver Brandon Marshall joining the New York Giants and whether Ryan Pace should even consider drafting running back Joe Mixon.

Are reports that the Chicago Bears are interested in quarterback Mike Glennon accurate? If so, it's not a popular idea with most of the Chicago Bears Barroom Radio analysts. They share their explicit thoughts on the former Tampa Bay Bucs QB and on the refusal of Ryan Pace to franchise tag Alshon Jeffery. The analysts also share the players they are interested in following at the Combine.
If you like sick humor stick around for the post-show wrap-up where things get... sick.
