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 […]

Vikings at Bears 2013: 3 Up 3 Down

I started Sunday morning glad that I didn’t have my tickets for the game, given the steady rain. As the Minnesota Vikings looked to be driving toward a nail-in-the-coffin touchdown with less than five minutes remaining, I was ready to write it off. Then when Martellus Bennett caught the winning touchdown pass from Jay Cutler […]

2013 Chicago Bears Friday 5: vs. Vikings

I am confident in a Bears win over the Vikings on Sunday. A Viking victory would portend some bad things for the Bears. For Minnesota to win, as I see it one of two things would have to happen for the Vikings, and one for the Bears. The Bears would either have to be completely […]

Bengals at Bears 2013: 3 Up 3 Down

Bengals at Bears 2013: 3 up 3 down This was the game the Bears couldn’t win, according to many experts. In Sunday’s Chicago Tribune, six of the eight legitimate picks were for the Bengals, the only dissenters were Fred Mitchell and Dan Wiederer. I rarely give my opinion on Bears games, other than to say […]

Chicago Bears Friday Five 2013 Opener

The bad news is those of us in the northern United States now begin the long descent into winter. As much as I truly do enjoy freezing cold Bears games, I despise six to eight straight months of dreary weather. However, the great news is that in 48 hours my crew will be departing to […]

Jordan Palmer is the New Ken Mastrole

Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my! Ken Mastrole and Kenny Christian and now Jordan Palmer, oh my! Watched the final 2013 Chicago Bears preseason game at a GREAT friend’s house tonight. Although we drank and talked through the whole thing, I feel like I’ve never watched a fourth preseason game in more detail. Why? […]

Chargers at Bears Preseason 2013

I saw a lot of positives in Thursday night’s preseason game against San Diego, which the Bears won 33-28. I also saw a lot of negatives. So to me, it seemed as if there was a negative for every positive. It is preseason, but we’ll have to hope things will get cleaned up with just […]

I’m Not Done with Hester

ProFootballTalk seems to be beating a drum for the Bears to dump Devin Hester. First they jumped on the fact that a local publication noted that Hester is “competing” to be the Bears’ primary kick returner. Then they opined that it wouldn’t cost much for the Bears to cut or trade him. I fully understand […]

2013 Chicago Bears Draft 6-Pack

My six thoughts on the 2013 Chicago Bears draft class: 1. As shocked as I was by the selection of Kyle Long with the 20th pick, I’m warming to the idea. I was initially frustrated because I felt there was a playmaker there (Tyler Eifert) and a good player at a position of need (Desmond […]

Strange 2013 NFL Draft First Round

It was a strange night. I was in pain from a minor procedure and had no interest in following the draft on twitter, or tweeting out myself. When the Chicago Bears selected Oregon guard Kyle Long with their 20th pick, I tried to send a message out stating how much the pick confused me, but […]
