1995 Chicago Bears

Any new stories to www.BearsHistory.com get posted here as well. Here is the re-write of the 1995 Chicago Bears season. In 1995, for the first of two straight years, Dave Wannstedt and his Bears team felt that the pieces were falling into place, if not completely in place, for a run deep into the playoffs. [...]

It’s Wednesday

I’m really still too stunned by the collapse of the defense to think of many original thoughts. When the Bear defense plays great, shutting down L.T. and only giving up 14 points, the offense can only muster 3. Offense scores 31 against Minnesota? Defense is thrashed and allows 34. Wait, I’m a Bear fan of [...]

Chicago Bears Gloom and Doom

I could easily jump in here and join Jay Mariotti’s rants about the sky is falling, but I’ll let him do it for now. I’m still wondering just what the hell happened two days ago. This Chicago Bears Super Bowl era is over, he says. Pointing out that the Bears’ line is old and the [...]

Back out of Contention

I’m pretty much speechless after that one. When the Bears decide they need a running back, they reach at number four and take a Cedric Benson, a guy labeled as “like Ricky Williams but not as good.” When the Vikings need one, Adrian Peterson falls to them at pick seven. I guess all I can [...]

Vikings at Bears 2007

I’m getting myself nervous-getting that feeling again that there’s no reason the Bears should lose to the Vikings this week. Hopefully this won’t turn out to be a trap game. The Bears plan to continue to move Greg Olsen all over the field. Good. Ron Turner on Grossman: “It’s almost like people are looking for [...]

Change in Opinion-Pay Lance Briggs

The Chicago Bears should pay Lance Briggs. It was my plan to write a post about this all week, and ironically I noticed in today’s Tribune David Haugh writes on this very subject. I’m writing this before I read his article. During the offseason, when Briggs and his agent (everyone’s friend Drew Rosenhaus) were grandstanding [...]

Drunk Bear Fans

I have some pretty good Chicago Bears Tailgating information and Photos on my www.BearsHistory.com site. But as far as humor goes, I’ve been outdone by this site I just stumbled upon: the Drunk Bear Fans blog. I’ve been going to Soldier Field since I was 8 years old in 1979. At that time, I didn’t [...]

Rex Grossman Sideline Demeanor

Thank you for putting my thoughts to paper, David Haugh, regarding Rex Grossman smiling or snickering on the sidelines, or seemingly not paying attention to the game, etc. It’s interesting to know from David that apparently when caught on the national TV camera, Grossman was chuckling and pointing to the Wisconsin band, who were spelling [...]

Finally, a Positive Story

Seems this whole season has been filled with negative Bears stories in the morning papers. Finally, Dan Pompei of the Tribune can write that things are looking much better down the road for our Bears. Share

Why don’t you come clean, Ashton?

Both the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal and the Chicago Tribune reported today that among the many celebrities (ich) in the Lambeau crowd were Ashton Kutcher and his woman-friend Demi Moore. The Milwaukee paper is identifying all of the celebs as Packer fans, and the Tribune refers to Kutcher as a “close friend of Brett Favre’s”. Kutcher, an [...]
