Lovie Smith-Two Thoughts

I’ve never been a part of the popular “FIRE EVERYONE” crowd.  When Dick Jauron was fired following the 2003 season, my opinion was why fire a coach unless there is a better coach available to hire.  We all saw what happened in January 2004-GM Jerry Angelo practically went on a nationwide tour to find Jauron’s [...]

Chicago Bears-Downers Grove

Join us Tuesday night, November 30th at 7 p.m. at Downers Grove Public Library for a slide show on the Chicago Bears’ past and present.  I’ll be signing copies of Chicago Bears History for holiday gifts… Hope to see you there. Share

Bears Win; Division Lead to Themselves

Well, they actually did it.  The Bears beat the Eagles 31-26 and now lead in the NFC North following Green Bay’s loss in Atlanta.  8-3 is wonderful, unbelievable really, but I’d sure like to have those two losses to Washington and Seattle back. Are we still alive?  Is life going on today?  Because I could [...]

Farmer’s Run Continues?

Sam Farmer is the NFL writer for the Los Angeles Times, apparently, and his picks are syndicated in the Chicago Tribune, among other papers. I’ve gotten a kick out of the fact that I believe Farmer has picked against the Bears in 9 of 10 weeks this season.  If that’s the case, then he’s something [...]

Happy Thanksgiving

Everyone enjoy the Holiday.  No games going on that have anything to do with our Bears.  Sure, the Lions are playing, but since they’ve been irrelevant since the mid-1990′s, that doesn’t matter.  How I pity Lions fans, I really do. Sven, have some turkey with us tomorrow even though you won’t have the day off!  [...]

No Respect Continues

So yes, as expected, the Philadelphia Eagles are favored by 3.5 points over the Bears this Sunday.  Given that the home team is assumed to be spotted 3 points for being at home, the odds-makers feel the Eagles are really six and a half point favorites in the game. As has been the theme throughout [...]

No Help from Vikings

I really thought the Vikings would at least put up a fight against their arch-rivals, the Packers, yesterday.  Instead, Favre and Childress looked like they were on the verge of tears throughout the game, and I seriously thought it was time to put Brett out of his misery and bench him at halftime.  The Vikings [...]

Bears TAKE APART Dolphins

I’m writing this, watching the NFL Network postgame show, listening to the traveling Bears fans in Miami massively, loudly disrupt the postgame show.  Reminds me of when we did the same thing in St. Louis in 2006 after that nationally televised Bears win.  That night, the Edward Jones Dome actually sent security up to try [...]

25 Years of Bears-Dolphins

Given the last 25 years of games between the two teams, any observer that thinks we’ll see a run of the mill game tonight will probably be wrong.  A brief summary of the last seven meetings shows nary a “normal” game: 11/5/2006:  The seven games are bookended by the doozies.  On this day, the 7-0 [...]

Hats Off, 2010 Bears Defense

Ironic and/or fitting.  On my train ride into the office this morning, I was reflecting on how the 2010 Chicago Bears defense seems to be back (baby!).  Then as I walked into my office, two security guards at the front of the building were talking about how great the Bears defense has been this year.  [...]
