Now I AM Excited

Or perhaps the headline should read “thankfully the Bears were not able to sign Michael Bennett. Michael, brother of Bears tight end Martellus Bennett, was purportedly the Bears’ number one target in free agency until he quickly re-signed with Seattle. Would Phil Emery have been able to pull off what he has if he would […]

Giving Thanks for Trestman

Something I read about Lovie Smith yesterday morning brought me back to the Smith, and even the Dave Wannstedt regimes. The flexibility shown so far by Marc Trestman and Phil Emery contrast so much with that of Smith and Wannstedt, it’s another reason to be thankful. I hate invoking the Wannstedt era with the Bears, […]

Thanks, Devin

I’m wearing my Devin Hester Super Bowl 41 jersey today, and am a little sad. On Thursday, the Bears announced they will not be re-signing the future Hall of Fame kick returner. He leaves the Bears tied for the most return touchdowns in NFL history. I plunked down money I don’t have for the jersey […]

Packer Giveaway..The End

Like the French at the Louisana Purchase (.03 per acre), the Chicago Bears on Sunday gave away what was on the table. In this case, the NFC North division championship. Different year, different stakes, different Bears team, same results. Over the last 20 seasons, the Bears have lost 30 of the 41 matchups including the […]

Jeffery Snubbed: Packer Thoughts

Good news is (not that it matters in the end), the Bears will be represented in the 2014 Pro Bowl by Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte. Pretty cool to see those guys get their due. Unfortunately, I really thought Alshon Jeffery‘s breakout sophomore season would get him selected. It didn’t. Upon reviewing the NFL’s receiving […]

Pack at Bears 2013: Do or Dead

Just three seasons after the Bears and Packers met for the 2010 NFC Championship (let’s not remember how that ended), the two teams meet in a season finale for a division title for the first time this Sunday. Wish I could say my glass is half full, but anyone that’s been reading the six seasons […]

Making Bad

The good news from Sunday night, if there is any, is that I had the opportunity for I and my family to be interviewed for “Bear Down, the Documentary”, which is going to be awesome. (Please watch the trailer and throw Joe a few bucks if you can, and tell your friends). For this reason, […]

Will the 2013 Bears Be Wearing Hats?

Again, sorry for the picture of Rex Grossman. But in the photo, he’s wearing his 2005 NFC North Division Champions hat. Just heard someone mention on WSCR that should the Lions and Packers lose, and the Bears win, they will be “wearing hats.” I’d love that. For a guy that is usually pessimistic, I’m going […]

Bears Blast Dallas

Always a great night in Chicago when it’s freezing cold and the Bears can embarrass the Dallas Cowboys. Being at the game, I didn’t have access to commentary, but I believe I heard afterwards this was the fourth-coldest Bears game in their history. I had guessed in my 250 or so games I’ve been to, […]

Turkey Day State of the Bears

I haven’t posted since before that amazing Ravens game. What a roller coaster of a season. Since losing two games in a row to the Lions and Saints seven weeks ago, the Bears have now won, lost, won, lost, won, lost in that order. As amazing as the Ravens game was, the Rams game was […]
