Bears Shock Dallas, Start 2-0

Wow.  I can’t gloat, because I wasn’t one that thought it could happen (nod to Andy and Kenneth from Friday who gave it a chance).  Despite looking like their quarterback would be killed before halftime, the Chicago Bears prevailed, beating the Cowboys 27-20 and earning their first win in big D since 1986. I had […]

Bears at Cowboys 2010

I hate the Dallas Cowboys.  Always have going back to the late 1970′s when I can remember half the kids in my grade school seemingly abandoning their local team for the Cowboys or Steelers.  But I’ve used that story so many times that I’m going to start sounding like a senile old coot if I […]

One Good, One Bad vs. Lions

For each Chicago Bears game this season, I’ll try to post the most positive thing I saw as well as the most negative. The Good: It’s sometimes hard to see detail from my seats at the game.  But one thing I noticed during the preseason, and on the broadcast of the Lions game when I […]

Chicago Bears Palos Heights Library

Thanks to all who turned out to hear the Chicago Bears History Presentation at Palos Heights Library last night.  I had fun and enjoyed meeting the Bears fans that turned out.   Special thanks to Mary Johnson from the library for setting it up. Share

Julius Peppers’ First Bears Game

I heard a couple of fans after Sunday’s season opening win complaining that Julius Peppers didn’t do much.  On the Doug & OB postgame, I also heard Ed O’Bradovich saying more was expected out of our new $90 million man.  O’Bradovich focused on the fact that he ended up with zero tackles. My opinion is, […]

Bears 19, Lions 14, 9-12-2010

Putting aside the baffling call that won the Chicago Bears the football game, about the most positive thing I can say is that the Bears won a game they were supposed to win.  But other baffling things still linger: – Lovie Smith and his staff wouldn’t go for a touchdown on fourth-and-goal on the game’s […]

Justice in Odd Bears Win

In the second-to-last game of 2004, the Bears lost to the Lions at Ford Field after being robbed on a poor call by the officials.  And it was the exact same ruling as the one that lost yesterday’s game for the Lions, for those that don’t remember. The Bears trailed the Lions 19-13 with less […]

2010 Chicago Bears

The 2010 Chicago Bears Season kicks off Sunday.  I always have a twinge of regret when training camp starts, because I know summer is drawing to a close.  When the actual regular season starts, summer has drawn to a close, but the dawn of a new season with the “anything can happen” feeling numbs by […]

Way to Go, Brett

Glad to see that last night’s opening NFL game turned out as I hoped it would.  Brett Favre looked rusty, and even more concerning for the Vikings, he looked tired and worn out.  This isn’t even my opinion-it was the opinion of the postgame commentators on NBC and the NFL Network. Favre played his same […]
