Final Word: Bears’ 2009 Schedule

I’m the last person that is afraid of cold weather games.  I actually loved being at the coldest game in Chicago Bears history last December, with kickoff temperature near zero and the windchill much lower than that.  But who doesn’t love beautiful September and October games in Chicago?  Again, my problem with the schedule is [...]

Curse you, Bears Schedule-Makers

Every year, I complain when the Bears don’t get to open at home (they haven’t since 2004) and when the majority of their home games happen after November 1st (this is happening more and more frequently).  There is nothing better than a beautiful Fall Sunday on the Chicago lakefront, and few things more brutal than [...]

Bears Sign Exciting New Receiver

Thanks go to Tobin for passing along this link. The Bears have made The Onion.  What a great milestone in Chicago Bears History.  According to this source, the Bears have signed a dynamic new wide receiver.  A receiver that could team with Jay Cutler to create the best quarterback-receiver duo in Bears history. The sad [...]

2009 Chicago Bears Schedule Release

NFL Network would like Bears fans to know that they will be live via satellite from Joe’s Sports Bar at 940 W. Weed in Chicago, Tuesday at 6 p.m.  They would like to see as many Bears fans in gear as possible to show live for the network’s schedule release show. Head out and get [...]

Closer Look at the Cutler Trade

Today profootballtalk.com takes a closer look at the Cutler trade.  Their verdict seems to be that the Broncos really got fleeced, and in light of also not being able to land Matt Cassel, it’s not pretty for Bronco fans. Can I just say again that it’s so nice for once, that everything doesn’t stink for [...]

Jay Cutler and Bears Fans

This cartoon sums it up.  Hilarious.  I think I’m the dude on all fours with the bone in his nose.  Wait, I definitely don’t want to be that guy. Share

Jay Cutler, Chicago Bears Quarterback

Just had to write that headline so someone can call me out if I dreamed the whole thing last night.  Apparently it’s true, and I’m happy again today. I can laugh at myself now.  24 hours ago (prior to 6 a.m. Chicago time yesterday) I wrote a post doubting the Bears would do what it [...]

Chicago Bears Land Jay Cutler!

In the “I almost fell out of my truck 10 minutes ago” category, news is currently breaking that the Chicago Bears have acquired quarterback Jay Cutler from the Denver Broncos for first-round picks in 2009 and 2010, a third-round pick, and quarterback Kyle Orton.  The Bears also receive Denver’s fifth-round pick this year. Unbelievable.  Best [...]

Chicago Bears Jay Cutler

OK Bears fans, at least it has been announced that the Bears will be players for Jay Cutler after the Broncos announced they will indeed trade the disgruntled signal-caller. It shocks me a little, I really expected the standard “we’re the Bears, we like our own players, we have Kyle Orton so why would we [...]
