Doug Buffone, 1944-2015

I was shocked to hear after work today of the passing of legendary Chicago Bears linebacker Doug Buffone. Buffone played for the Bears from 1966-1979, during the tenures of five different head coaches (which I believe must be a Bears record), and played in the third most games of any player in Bears history. More […]

1984 Bears: A Capital Gain

Comcast SportsNet Chicago will be airing its latest episode of “Bears Classics” tonight (January 27th) at 8 p.m. The title is A Capital Gain, its subject the December 30, 1984 NFC Divisional playoff game at Washington, in which the Bears defeated the Redskins 23-19.

#Bears Disarray-Origins and Continuation

In early May 2001, Chicago Bears CEO Ted Phillips and the late Mark Hatley, VP of Player Personnel from 1997-2001, sat at the Halas Hall podium. The meeting was to announce a “mutual termination” of Hatley’s contract less than a month after he ran the 2001 draft for his now-former team. A member of the […]

Honoring Iron Mike

It’s been a crazy NFL season, as they all are. With a win tonight against Dallas, the Bears can again pull even with Detroit (record-wise), after the Eagles took care of the Lions on Sunday. In order to secure a playoff berth, the Bears must win out and have Detroit lose at least one game. […]

St. Louis Bound

Man, that Ravens game. With the circumstances and heady play of Josh McCown and the defense (when needed), that will go down as one of the most unique Bears games in my lifetime. I’ll have to write a whole story about that. Today it’s time to head to St. Louis for what will undoubtedly be […]

Soldier Field Evacuation

Nine-minute video from under the stands during the Bears-Ravens game evacuation of the stands. Crazy, crazy day. I will never identify those doing the talking on this video. Enjoy. Share

Curse of the Honey Bears

I don’t truly believe in curses, even as a Cubs and Bears fan. And I don’t remember anyone associated with the Honey Bears saying anything about the team not going back to the Super Bowl after their contract wasn’t renewed for 1986. I enjoyed watching the Honey Bears immensely when I was a little kid […]

Top 10 NFL Curses Appearance

I most certainly will have egg on my face if my interview didn’t make the cut, but here goes nothing. In March 2013 I was interviewed for NFL Network’s Top 10 series on several Bears-related subjects. If my interviews don’t end up landing on the cutting room floor, this will probably be the pinnacle of […]
