Rooting for Bears to Lose?

No, I don’t seriously mean that, but read on. What a crazy season it’s been. The Bears rally in the final minutes to win their first two games, then survive a comeback at Pittsburgh to start 3-0. They lose handily to New Orleans, survive another comeback to beat the Giants. They score 41 points and […]

Friday 5: Lions at Bears 2013

I admit it. I proclaimed it. I had totally, completely lost faith in the Bears beating the Green Bay Packers on November 4th. I kept faith in 2008, 2009, in the 2010 NFC Championship, in portions of the 2011 and 2012 season. Not so much the late games in those years. But this year I […]

Bears at Packers 2013

A few quick thoughts on the upcoming Monday Night Football game at Green Bay. – It is well known that the Bears continue to run the same defense as they did under Lovie Smith for eight seasons. It’s “bend but don’t break,” try to force turnovers while forcing the opposition to get yardage a little […]

Turning Point 2013

I entered the 2013 Chicago Bears season as usual. Hoping for the best but with a healthy dose of skepticism. Many experts predicted that the team would finish around 7-9 or 8-8. Most predicted they would lose to the juggernaut Cincinnati Bengals at home in the opener. Personally I thought they would win the opener, […]

Friday Five: Bears at Redskins 2013

Remember the days when the Bears were one ongoing controversy (Tank Johnson, Cedric Benson)? Thankfully the Redskins and their team name are currently in the driver’s seat on that subject. I posted the photo to the left because I loved those Redskin throwback uniforms from 2003. As the kids would say, I thought they were […]

Saints at Bears 2013

I definitely have more concerns about Saints at Bears 2013 than I have confidence in the Bears winning. So the most direct thing I can write this week is: is there anyone out there that feels strongly in the Bears winning this game? One thing is certain, if the Bears do beat the Saints, it […]

Bears at Lions 2013: 3 Down 3 Up

Wow, as exciting as the 3-0 start was, this game was as disappointing. I’m not a statistician and don’t have a database of every Bears game in my brain. But I’m betting that the Bears have never scored 40 points in one week, then given up 40 in the next. What a bummer. I also […]

Friday Five: Bears at Lions 2013

- I get the feeling this is a very different Detroit Lions team the Bears will be facing this Sunday. Different from the Lions teams the Bears have beaten eight of the last nine times the teams have met. Detroit has a powerful offense, especially if Reggie Bush is playing, which he should. More surprisingly, […]

Bears-Steelers 2013: 3 Up 3 Down

1. The Bears almost unraveled at Pittsburgh, building a 24-3 lead then regressing to a score of 27-24. In my opinion, the key to the victory was the fact the Bears opened aggressively and built the 17-0 lead. We are at the beginning of a long road, early in the 2013 Chicago Bears season, so […]

2013 Chicago Bears Friday 5: at Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Chicago Bears have a long history, since the Steelers have been around since 1933. But since the Bears-Steelers game in 1980 was the first I watched, I’ll start there. That year the Bears were coming off a playoff appearance when they entered Three Rivers Stadium to take on the defending world […]
