Chicago Bears Offensive Coordinator Search

Ken Zampese and Mike “Meathead” Tice.  Do those names do anything for you?  Because as it seems now, one or both of those guys are going to be your next offensive coordinator(s) of the Chicago Bears. Yes, you heard that right, according to Dan Pompei of the Chicago Tribune, the Bears might consider splitting the […]

Forget the Warner Regret

Seems like everywhere the last few days, local journalists are playing up the “Bears could have signed Kurt Warner in 2005″ story.  I really think they should put it to rest and concentrate on more important things, like which retread will actually accept their offer to become offensive coordinator now that candidates A (Jeremy Bates) […]

Trib on Bates, Fewell

On Sunday, Dan Pompei and Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune wrote convincing arguments for hiring Jeremy Bates and Perry Fewell as offensive and defensive coordinator, respectively. Just as I was warming to the idea of Bates, it appears that he will be heading to Seattle with Pete Carroll. The report cites long-term job security […]

Chicago Bears Confusion

Does the “C” on the side of the Bears’ helmets stand for confusion?  It would seem so. This is the point of the year where my posts will start slowing down.  I have so many thoughts about how confused the Bears seem to be from top to bottom at this point in time, but I’m […]

Halas Hall: Dogs & Ponies

So yes, to correct an earlier rumor, Rod Marinelli will not become the new defensive coordinator for the Bears.  In a lengthy press conference at Soldier Field today, Bears CEO Ted Phillips, GM Jerry Angelo, and Head Coach Lovie Smith spoke to the media, announcing that virtually the entire offensive staff  has been fired, and […]

Turner out, Marinelli Up

The Chicago Tribune is reporting that Ron Turner has indeed been fired as the Bears Offensive Coordinator.  Turner held the post with the Bears under Dave Wannstedt from 1993-1996 and again from 2005-2009 under Lovie Smith.  In those nine years, the Bears made the playoffs three times. The Tribune is also reporting that defensive line […]

Trib: Smith Back

Are you ready to purchase some false hope Bears fans?  Because I know Ted Phillips and Jerry Angelo will want to sell you some at 2 p.m. today. The Chicago Tribune is reporting that the decision has been made to bring Lovie Smith back as Bears coach and “everything will be covered” by the organization […]

2009 Chicago Bears

Our 2009 Chicago Bears page at is complete.  Here’s the first few paragraphs: has many definitions for the phrase “epic fail”, which we take it from the young people is a newer addition to the English lexicon. One of the better definitions is: “A mistake of such monumental proportions that it requires its […]

Adios 2009 Chicago Bears

Can’t say I’m disappointed to see this season end.  I’m pretty surprised to have seen the Bears turn what was a probable 5-11 finish into a 7-9 season following the 36-30 win over the Vikings and today’s 37-23 defeat of Detroit.  And I’m sorry to say it, fans, but in my opinion I think the […]
