    Kyle Fuller #23
    Ego Ferguson #95
    Will Sutton #93
    Ka'Deem Carey #25
    Brock Vereen #45
    David Fales #12
    Pat O'Donnell #16
    Charles Leno #72
    Jordan Lynch #36

    Interesting that Fales ended up with #12. Alot of analysts see him as the new Josh McCown (weak arm but perfect in Trestman's system)

    Vereen drew Gary Fencik's old number. Maybe that's a good omen.

    I definitely hope it's some good mojo.

    That's pretty cool. Fencik was a 10th round pick. He played 12 years here and was captain, All Pro and a Pro Bowl player. Still the all time leader in ints and tackles. Pretty good for the 281st pick of the draft. He was a local kid too (from Barrington HS). Very similar in size to Vereen.

    I know it's silly but there's some numbers I like and some I don't. Don't care for 93 for a DL. I don't know about 36 for Lynch either, I wonder if it'll be his number throughout. Maybe he can summon some Westbrook-like production. I have no real valid reasons why I prefer some over the others but that's how it is. Cool that Ka'Deem got his college number.

    Hell yeah, that'd be awesome.

    I'm hoping Peanut puts Fencik at #2 this season for INT's.

    I consider myself a numbers junkie too. Unfortunately the Bears have 14 retired numbers which severely limits which ones/and how many are available.

    Good to know I'm not alone! You have a favorite per position or just a general set of numbers you approve of?

    I'm a fan of running backs and linebackers. So there are Alot of numbers in the 20's, 30's, and 50's that are my favorite.

    Unfortunately the Bears already have Alot of my favorites retired.

    I'm a big fan of oddities too. Like when Devin Hester was a WR wearing #23. I loved when WRs started wearing numbers in the teens. I'm also a big fan of high numbered jerseys in hockey and baseball too.

    Are you a fan of Baseball? If so, I highly recommend the book "Now Batting, Number..." by Jack Looney. It goes over the history of Jersey numbers in MLB

    You must be loving our current set of receivers then? One of my favorite numbers (not football, just in life) is 17 so I love that Jeffery wears it. I'm actually just starting to get into baseball so I'll definitely pick that up. It'd be an interesting read and help me on my way I'm sure. Thanks for the recommendation! Any good football books you've read and would suggest reading?

    Monsters: the 1985 Chicago Bears and the wild heart of football by Rich Cohen....Awesome book and a great little history lesson on our beloved Bears, their History and the beginnings of the NFL....I found this book because of a fellow DA Bears forum poster so I should follow that person and pay it forward to another reader....it will also list other books to follow up with
