Jay Cutler and Another Bears Tackle

Rick Morrissey of the Tribune this morning calls Jay Cutler a quitter and would not want the Bears to sign him.  Of course Morrissey and his colleagues get paid to write about the nonstandard view. Of course I would lean toward wanting the Bears to sign Cutler since they haven’t had a longterm answer at [...]

Bears at Packers 2009

Or the headline should read: I WANT MY OPENING DAY BACK! The Chicago Tribune has revealed that one of the items to come out of this week’s NFL owner’s meetings is that the Bears will visit the Packers on opening night, Sunday September 13th, for a nationally televised game. Cool that the Bears get to [...]

Chicago Bears Minicamp 2009

Good thing the Bears moved up their minicamp several months, or we’d really have nothing to talk about this offseason with Jerry Angelo’s relative lack of moves to improve the team.  Oh, wait, we could talk about Kyle being our quarterback. For daily updates on the minicamp, I find the best place is Brad Biggs’ [...]

The Chicago Bears Ring of Honor

Stop by the BearsHistory.com Chicago Bears Ring of Honor to visit the biography pages for the 26 primary Bears Hall of Famers, which are now complete. Next up, we will be coming up with our very own Chicago Bears Ring of Honor, since the Bears have never created one themselves.  This will honor the other [...]

Bears sign Free Safety Bullocks

Finally breaking out of their self-imposed silent period, on Wednesday the Chicago Bears signed free agent safety Josh Bullocks to a one-year contract.  Per the Chicago Sun-Times, Bullocks will “begin competing for the starting free safety job immediately.” Given that he’ll be competing against Craig Steltz, this is one job Bullocks better win. Good to [...]

Rashied Davis-Still your Starting Receiver

Recently I read that the Chicago Bears’ starting wide receivers at their late March minicamp will be Devin Hester and Rashied Davis. I am still very appreciative of Rashied for a couple of big catches he made in 2006.  The two biggest that come to mind were his touchdown catch at Minnesota, pulling off a [...]

Pat Kirwin on the McCaskey Reality

Wow. In a very interesting tidbit, among a lot of interesting tidbits that come out of Brad Biggs’ Blog, yesterday a post described something Pit Kirwin said Tuesday on Sirius Radio. Kirwin, who claims to be long time friend with Bears’ GM Jerry Angelo, told a caller that Angelo has told him of at least [...]

Let the Terrell Owens Talk Commence

So reports have it that the Dallas Cowboys have released talented but petulant receiver Terrell Owens.  The Bears need receivers badly (not just A receiver, mind you), Owens is talented and available, so for days now there will be an avalanche of speculation from Bears fans and the media.  One newspaper in Chicago employs a [...]

Chicago Bears Free Agency 2009

We’re almost a week into free agency, and as expected, the Chicago Bears haven’t done much.  And Rex Grossman has yet to find a taker to help him prove he’s still one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. No surprise on either of those fronts.  Actually in my opinion the Bears have done more [...]
