Remember This, Packers and Fans?

As the brouhaha continues over the Packers being robbed by a bad call, losing last night’s Monday Night game, let’s not forget the following. In 1989 the Chicago Bears traveled to Lambeau Field having won eight games straight over the Packers. With just seconds left on the clock, on fourth and long with the Bears […]

Bears 23 Rams 6 Bullets

Some machine gun-fast bullet points on the Bears and NFL week 3: – I’ll start by not even talking about the Bears. A lot of Monday nights I have to be asleep well before end of the Monday night game. Woke up this morning to see the calamity going on surrounding the end of last […]

Rams at Bears ’12 Six Pack

Let’s hope it’s bounce-back week for the Bears. 1. Will the Bears bounce back from the abysmal loss to the Packers? They certainly should, and I think they will, but this is not the same Rams team the Bears have manhandled the last couple of games. They’re now coached by the former dean of NFL […]

Sad Passing of Steve Sabol

Steve Sabol, the mastermind who with his father created the game of football on film as we all love to see it, the President of NFL Films, passed away from brain cancer yesterday. He was only 69. It is ironic that I was just wondering and talking about Sabol last week in my Chicago Bears […]

Offensive Line and Cutler

Tuesday’s post on Monday evening due to a 4 a.m. Tuesday wake-up. I wrote this morning that I had thoughts on the Chicago Bears offensive line. My thoughts were that the Bears had better get the recently-signed Jonathan Scott ready to take over for J’Marcus Webb on the left side, and I was hoping that […]

Upon Review of My Thoughts..

On Thursday night following the disappointing, ugly (insert your own term) Bears 23-10 loss at Green Bay, one of my initial thoughts was why didn’t the offense execute a plan for managing Green Bay’s blitz? Pretty standard, when the offense sees the defense lining up to blitz, the quarterback has the option to audible and […]

Packers 23, Bears 10 2012

Yet another huge Bears-Packers game before which I had great hopes for the Bears to step up, and once again they didn’t. Maybe this is Karmic retribution. When I was young, I had no appreciation for how special it was for the Bears to dominate the Packers. In my first 14 years watching the team […]

Bears at Packers 2012

Four hours to gametime. Remember Bears, if this does serve as motivation to you, nobody seems to believe you can pull it off. Even more indicative are the Chicago Tribune’s picks this morning-only one expert picked the Bears (versus around seven for the Packers). One loss at Green Bay in what will be a ferociously […]

Chicago Bears History on Packer Eve

It’s the eve of the huge 2012 Bears Packers matchup, why not spend it talking and learning Chicago Bears History at St. Xavier University? I’ll be there tonight at 6:30 for a multimedia show on the 93 years of Bears history. The presentation will include reflecting on the score from the picture, and dreaming of […]

Prove It, Bears

No need to state the obvious again. The Green Bay Packers owned the Chicago Bears while Dave Wannstedt and Dick Jauron coached the team. (This was after Mike Ditka compiled a 15-5 record versus Green Bay in his eleven seasons as coach). But again it was a massacre under: Wannstedt 1-11 Jauron 2-8 When Lovie […]
