The 49ers, Super Bowl finalists, are drawn to Tom Brady. Are the Bears? Um, yeah, about that ...

Do you ever get the feeling that public pressure has dragged the Bears, kicking and screaming, into looking for a quarterback to “push” Mitch Trubisky in 2020? That, left to their own devices, they’d not only stick with the status quo, they’d take regular naps with it? I get that feeling about 10 times a day.

And that word — push. It’s so non-confrontational. It doesn’t want to step on Mitch’s toes. It says: “Your job is secure, dear one. We simply want to help you discover the best version of yourself.’’

I thought of this Wednesday when rumors began to circulate in earnest that the 49ers, who lost to the Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV, are interested in signing Tom Brady.
