54th Most Memorable Chicago Bears Game

54th Most Memorable Chicago Bears Game since 1979 Bears 35, Eagles 3: October 4, 1987 Nothing about the play on the football field was particularly interesting in this game, as the competition was between football players no fan had heard of just weeks before.  This was the first 1987 game played following the player’s strike [...]

55th Most Memorable Bears Game

55th Most Memorable Chicago Bears Game since 1979 Bears 13, Panthers 3: November 20, 2005 The Bears were surprising the NFL, riding a five-game winning streak, sitting with a record of 6-3 after having started the season 1-3.  But the Panthers had equaled the Bears’ dominance to that point, coming into the contest with a [...]

Benson Busted Again

Well, well, well.  Bears fans endured crowing from Bengals fans in 2009, and from Cedric Benson himself, when the runner bowled over the Bears in a lopsided Bengals win.  The Bears were stupid for ever releasing Benson due to a lackadaisical approach to his job, and several run-ins with the law.  We would see, they [...]

55 Greatest Chicago Bears Games

Finally, something new to keep us Bear motivated until training camp opens.  My first thought was to come up with a list of the best 30 Bears games over the last 30 years.  But since this will be my 32nd season watching the Bears, I decided to go back to 1979 when I started watching [...]

Alex Brown Escorted from Halas Hall

Apparently, former Bears defensive end Alex Brown announced via his twitter feed that he showed up at Halas Hall and was promptly escorted from the building. The linked story doesn’t explain why he visited Halas Hall, I can assume it was simply to visit former friends while they were attending OTA’s. Granted, I don’t know [...]

SuperFans Sing the Stretch

George Wendt and Robert Smigel, in character as the SuperFans, sang the 7th inning stretch at Wrigley today: The SuperFans are in town and in character this weekend for their reading of Da Movie that Never Was.  I’d sure like to see it. Share

Dallas Writer: Bears Stink

Just caught Brad Biggs’ breaking news.  Per Biggs, respected Dallas writer Rick Gosselin ranks the Bears 22nd in the NFL, just two spots ahead of the Detroit Lions.  Like everyone else, he’s unimpressed with the Bears free agent acquisitions, and ranks Chicago far below the Packers and Vikings.  Yawn, tell us something everyone else in [...]

USA Today 2010 Pro Football Preview

This is a summary of Bears news, predictions, statements, from the 2010 USA Today Pro Football Preview magazine I picked up yesterday.  If you don’t want the condensed version but would rather read it yourself, move on to something else… Julius Peppers is the only Bear to make their list of the top 50 players [...]

2010 Bears in Preview Magazines

(By the way, congrats to the Blackhawks, of course.  I am not a hockey guy, and I am not a fair-weather bandwagon jumper.  So you won’t see me out there in Blackhawks gear like the thousands of posers we will see.  But I am happy for them, the city, and my friends that are true [...]

Bears Hold STH Conference Call

Last night, the Bears held their first “interactive season ticket holder conference call.”  Lo and behold, Jeff Joniak did call me as promised, but with a wife and kids to take care of, the previous evening found me enjoying the fleeting moments of having small kids before they grow up.  So Jeff had to be [...]
