Unveiling the Chicago Bears Initial 53-Man Roster

I call this the “initial” roster because as the other teams’ cuts are announced, I’m sure that the Bears will be adding and subtracting from this roster in order to take on players from other organizations as needs fit. Despite what Ryan Pace had to say about not requiring players from other teams, the Bears... Read more »

Bears QB Mike Glennon Just Needs to Manage the Game

All the Bears need Mike Glennon to do is to be a game-manager. Manage the game, by handing the ball off to Jordan Howard, and hitting short passes out of the backfield to the backs and slot receiver. If he can do that successfully, and get the tight end involved, the Bears defense should keep... Read more »

Predicting a Cubs-Indians World Series Rematch

Now I know, there is hardly anybody picking the Cubs to win the World Series this year. Pundits are so enamored with the Los Angeles Dodgers that they can’t seem to even notice any other team. And with good reason—Da Bums are playing around .700 baseball, and lead their division by an astounding 17 games!... Read more »

Could Cubs be the "Mystery Team" Interested in Verlander?

In its latest update on Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Justin Verlander, MLBTradeRumors indicated there has been a “surge of interest” in the righty, with Jon Morosi of MLB Network stating that another organization “has emerged as [a] possible suitor.” I don’t know, but I’m certainly hoping that mystery team is the Cubs.   Sure, Verlander is...

Kris Bryant Historically Bad in Clutch but it will Even Out

KRIS BRYANT SUCKS! Okay, now that I have your attention, relax Cubs fans. I’m only talking about in the clutch. If there even is such a thing as “clutch”. Let me explain. Look, I’m not one to say whether there is such a thing as a clutch ballplayer or not. I mean, I don’t think... Read more »

It's Time to See Bears QB Mitch Trubisky with the First Team

It’s been surprisingly fun watching the Bears first two preseason games, mainly due to the promise that rookie QB Mitchell Trubisky holds. Normally, even when the Bears are good, I couldn’t care less about exhibition football, but this year’s different. It’s not that I expect the Bears to be any good, it’s just that the... Read more »

Let the QB Controversy Begin: Mitch Trubisky Impresses in Bears Debut

“Mike’s the starter,” Trubisky said. “This is his team.” Ah yes, the fact that young Mitchell even felt the need to utter those words makes you realize just what is developing here, in a town that always loves the backup QB and has been known to experience a QB controversy or two over the years....

Ryan Pace Wants John Fox Out as Bears Head Coach

No, it’s not like Ryan Pace and John Fox are having a spat, or that there is such a disconnect between the men that continuing the relationship would be toxic to the team. No, nothing like that. However, if Pace, the guy who generally manages the Chicago Bears, has his wish, he would like to... Read more »

Jay Cutler is Taking His Talents to South Beach

So that didn’t last very long, did it? Nope, Jay Cutler’s career as a media analyst on Fox is on hold, with Cutler deciding he still wants to play, and his former coach in Chicago Adam Gase offering him 10 million reasons to do so. What’s surprising to me is that Cutler still wants to... Read more »

Cubs Brass Does What They Needed to do—Now it's up to the Team to Make it Happen

Theo Epstein entered the trade deadline with three primary needs—starting pitching, relief pitching and a backup catcher. And he went out and filled those needs, so now it’s now it’s up to Joe Maddon and his players to continue to live up to their reputations and win another title. Everyone knows that moves likes the...

I love DA BEARS, but I certainly have a sense of humor about it. You have to!
