Seahawks Loss Recap

Around the city’s papers this morning: Dan Pompei says the Bears asked Jay Cutler to do too much. Steve Rosenbloom tears into the Bears, as usual. The offensive line and defensive line didn’t have good days. Rick Telander says that Jay Cutler is beginning to look lost. Mike Mulligan criticizes Mike Martz. Despite tying the […]

Bears Lose to Seattle in Disappointing Fashion

No one predicted the Bears would upset the Cowboys or Packers.  Conversely, noone predicted Seattle had a chance today.  I’m not sure if it was the Bears taking Seattle lightly, but the Seahawks upset the Bears 23-20. Chicago’s defense kept the Bears in the game.  The special teams almost won the game with a stirring […]

Seahawks at Bears 2010

Week six in the NFL is shaping up with many interesting storylines, and not just in Chicago. Will the Bears continue to beat the teams they should beat, such as the 6.5 point underdog Seattle Seahawks, not just winning games in which they’re not favored?  The Bears have won two games they should have over […]

Da Coach: Entertaining, Polarizing

I was glad to see nothing written on these comments in Friday morning’s Chicago Tribune, so I believe Mike Ditka’s comments from Thursday afternoon on ESPN Radio have not caused uproar, as some thought they would. In case you missed it, Ditka told ESPN Radio in Miami that he has “zero sympathy” for Jenn Sterger.  […]

Follow Us on Facebook and Twitter

So I took the plunge. Interesting, because I pay attention to Facebook on a personal level less and less every day.  I don’t want to know every detail, thought and action about anyone else the way that some want to put their lives on display for constant attention there.  And by God I don’t want […]

Offensive Line Shuffle

25 years ago next month the Super Bowl Shuffle was recorded.  In 2010 the Bears are doing an offensive line shuffle, no song required. The good news is, per Brad Biggs of the Tribune, the offensive line’s five starters for this Sunday have 212 total career starts.  The not-so-good news is that 172 of those […]

Now There’s a Shocker

In a move I never thought I’d see happen, today per Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, the Bears will be moving left tackle Chris Williams to left guard Sunday against the Seahawks, a move that sends Roberto Garza to the bench. I know it sounds like hindsight, but I did catch myself wondering within […]

Da Bears by Steve Delsohn

I was recently provided with a review copy of a new book called Da Bears: How the 1985 Monsters of the Midway Became the Greatest Team in NFL History.  I told the publicist I would certainly read it and post a review. I have to admit, honestly, my initial reaction was “how could someone possibly […]

Vikings Fall to 1-3

On Sunday, the media’s assumed Super Bowl 45 champions lost to drop their record to 3-2.  Last night the Minnesota Vikings, the national media’s other shoo-in to win this year’s championship as of August, lost to the New York Jets to fall to 1-3. Meanwhile, the Chicago Bears lead Green Bay by a game, and […]

Bears 23, Panthers 6

The more the Chicago Bears play, it feels like the less I understand about what kind of team they really are.  They won handily yesterday, beating the woeful Carolina Panthers 23-6.  They did it by rushing for over 200 yards as a team, but at the same time starting quarterback Todd Collins finished with a […]
