Bears Escape with Win vs Carolina

Sounds disingenuous saying it now, but honestly I was worried about the potential of a trap game yesterday. Luckily, somehow, the Bears were able to pull out a 23-22 last-second with over the Panthers. What an exciting game to attend. As easily as the Bears could have lost the game, nobody I know thought they […]

Bears Dominate Lions 2012

A couple of articles today are icing on the cake after Chicago’s dominant win over Detroit. 13-7 was the final score, only because of a garbage touchdown scored by the Lions with 40 seconds remaining in the game. I wanted a shutout bad, but will certainly take the win. Profootballtalk now ranks the Bears as […]

Lions at Bears 2012

As Perno stated, he may be reading my mind, the Bears have not beaten a truly good team in 2012. The Cowboys were good enough to knock off the Giants on the road, and the Colts beat the Packers, but still no one could argue that the Bears have been dominating good teams. And I’m […]

Chicago Bears Defensive Rankings

The reality is, it’s much easier to find things to write about a team with problems than a 4-1 club coming off a dominating win. I’m not complaining! Going into bye weekend, figured I’d post a heartwarming stat. Reason being, it has been 2006 since the Chicago Bears defense has been in this territory. And […]

Friday Six Pack CHI at JAX 2012

This weekend’s six-pack: 1. As I am always the cautious, conservative, worrisome Bears fan, the main thing I want to say about Sunday’s visit to Jacksonville is to beware. Certainly the Bears should win this game convincingly. But all anyone had to do was watch the 4-0 Arizona Cardinals lose to the 2-2 St. Louis […]

Melton Was, And Is, a Hit

I liked the article Mike “Mully” Mulligan wrote for yesterday’s Chicago Tribune, in which he pointed out that Devin Hester is the only remaining Bear from Jerry Angelo’s 2004-2007 draft classes. Pretty abysmal. The firing of Angelo in January 2012 was so fast I didn’t know if it was thought-out or if it would result […]

Monday Night Six Pack, Bears at Cowboys

Six thoughts on NFL week four and the Bears’ forthcoming Monday-nighter in Dallas: 1. Watching Packers-Saints yesterday, I just couldn’t see either team winning. Meaning, it was hard to comprehend that either the Packers would drop to 1-3 at home, or the once-powerful and still talented Saints would fall to 0-4. But unfortunately the Saints […]
