Briggs Really Not Getting Paid Now

In a postive development that is overshadowed by the Tank news, the Bears today inked cornerback Nathan Vasher to a five-year, $28 million contract extension with $14 million in guaranteed money. To me, this is a pleasant surprise. It had been speculated that Chicago would not have the funds to lock up both corner Charles […]

Last Words on Tank

Well I knew it was going to happen, and the only thing I’m surprised about is the speed with which the Bears cut Tank Johnson.? Kudos to them. There were questions floating around out there as to whether NFL teams can release players for detrimental conduct, and the answer is yes, they can try to. […]

Goodbye, Tank

Tank Johnson was picked up by police in Arizona at 3:30 a.m. Thursday night/Friday morning for being impaired to the slightest degree.?? Keep in mind, this was roughly just 30 hours after the Bears concluded their organized team activities and Lovie Smith implored his players to stay out of trouble over the next month prior […]

What’s in a number?

My apologies, the lack of real news this time of year has me falling into a yawn about updating the blog early and often each day.? That will change soon, although the end of OTA’s should usher in truly the slowest football time of the year. In case you haven’t heard it, Brian Urlacher donned […]

Tommie Harris Musings

Man, it’s slow these days.? Roughly 42 days until training camp opens for the Bears, and things really don’t get much slower than this. In case you missed it, here’s the original story on comments from Tommie Harris, hoping the Bears will trade for Donovan McNabb.? As most know, Tommie likes to ruffle feathers. Share

Chris Brown Decision Near

The Chicago Tribune reports today that the Bears have indeed made an offer to running back Chris Brown, and that he will make a decision in the next five days. Brown is a fairly accomplished veteran, having rushed for over 1,000 yards with the Titans in 2004, so I think he would make a very […]

RB Chris Brown to the Bears?

Former Naperville North, Colorado, and Tennessee Titan running back Chris Brown is apparently weighing an offer to sign with the Bears.? That’s a surprise to me, with Cedric Benson, Adrian Peterson and Garrett Wolfe already locks to make the roster.? This evidently was reported by Adam Schefter on NFL Network. Share

Bears Fitted for NFC Championship Rings

There really is such a thing as a conference championship ring?? I guess now I know there is.? Hope this doesn’t satsify them. Share
