Pulling for Freddie Barnes

Great article by Neil Hayes of the Chicago Sun-Times about Bears rookie free agent wide receiver Freddie Barnes.  I didn’t know anything about his story, and now that I do, I’m pulling for him.  Actually sounds like he has some talent for Mike Martz’ system, too. Share

Wheel Keeps Turning: Payne Gone

A day after trading for former Bear safety Chris Harris, the Bears have shipped Kevin Payne to St. Louis for an undisclosed 2011 draft pick. Who wants to guess it’s a seventh-rounder? We wish Payne the best of luck, but I can’t say I’ll miss him.  Some said he was a big hitter….I remember more […]

Bears Bring Back Harris, Can Gabriel

Today the Bears re-acquired former strong safety Chris Harris from the Carolina Panthers.  In exchange for Harris, they traded linebacker Jamar Williams. I like the deal, as we all know the Bears should have never given up Harris in the first place to make room for flop Adam Archuleta in 2007. Also today, the Bears […]

Chicago Bears Draft 2010

The Bears’ 2010 draft is wrapped, and although two of the analysts I saw briefly on NFL Network gave Chicago a C, I am pleased with who they came away with.  Here’s my analysis and I’d like to hear yours, of course. – Major Wright, S, Florida (3):  Seemed like the best pick for where […]

Bears to Wear Throwbacks in 2010

I have to admit that these days, aging with kids, career and other activities, I miss news that I never would have missed 10 years ago.  I was aghast to find out today that I missed the announcement two days ago that the Bears will be wearing a 1940′s throwback uniform in two home games […]

Changes, But no New Mortgage

On Wednesday the Bears announced that George McCaskey will soon be replacing brother Michael as Chairman of the Bears board.  I’m sure this will come as a great relief to many that have cut their teeth on hating Michael-and for sure Michael made some moves in the late 80′s/early 90′s that earned him the venom.  […]

2010 Schedule Released

Unfortunately my early-to-rise-and-leave-the-house is the day after the release of the schedule.  So all I can do is ask, what are your thoughts on the schedule? I do have to say that it looks as though my complaining about the Bears’ recent schedules worked, as they’re opening at home for the first time in six […]

Mortgage Future Further: Crazy Talk

It’s draft week, which this year means less to me than most years since the Bears don’t have a pick until the third round.  So speaking of which, I have heard a lot of talk/seen a lot in print about the potential for the Bears to trade their 2011 first and/or second round picks to […]

St. Louis North Building Continues

With the re-signing of linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa, after the free-agent acquisition of tight end Brandon Manumaleuna, not only are the Bears ensuring a rough time for announcers during the 2010 season, but their roster continues to look more and more like the 2003 St. Louis Rams. Tinoisamoa is a good linebacker, no question.  I was […]

Yeah, That’s how we Feel

Just pulled this from, one of the greatest sites on the Internet. Priceless. Share
