The Bears are an embarrassment to the game of football

The Bears are an embarrassment to the game of football
If you are one of many people sick of watching Bears football, then raise your hand. Whether you are a fan of the historic Chicago franchise or simply a football fanatic, the Bears are quickly turning into a team that isn’t fun to watch at all. As offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains put it kindly on... Read more »

The Bears are like a bad soap opera

The Bears are like a bad soap opera
We’ve seen this episode before. A close game where the Bears are trailing and try to rally back. But then they choke. This week it came on a shanked Connor Barth 46-yard field goal that went so wide left it almost went into the tunnel where the players come out of. The Lions clipped the... Read more »

The Bears will never succeed under John Fox

The Bears will never succeed under John Fox
Go ahead and make excuses. The Bears have a rookie quarterback, the pass catchers are unknowns, the offensive line is banged up, the defense isn’t consistent… The reality is that the Bears are a 3-6 football team under third-year head coach John Fox. The Fox coached Bears have won 12 games and have lost 29,... Read more »

Dissecting the Bears' peculiar Week 8 loss in New Orleans

Dissecting the Bears' peculiar Week 8 loss in New Orleans
Watching the Bears play weekly continues to be the strangest thing. They have moments of great success and then just flat out bad lapses. Examples from Sunday’s 20-12 loss in New Orleans include an early offsides penalty by Kyle Fuller that led to four more New Orleans points and an ugly missed 48-yard field goal... Read more »

The Bears defense is real but Trubisky and Howard are exciting as well

The Bears defense is real but Trubisky and Howard are exciting as well
In one of the weirdest football games that you’ll see this season, the Bears needed overtime to defeat the Baltimore Ravens 27-24 on Sunday afternoon. Baltimore failed to score a single offensive touchdown but still somehow hung around. That is because the Bears had two ugly blunders on special teams, allowing a 96-yard kickoff return...

The reality of Mitch Trubisky's first career NFL start

The reality of Mitch Trubisky's first career NFL start
A 20-17 loss on Monday Night Football is not the worst thing. Bears’ rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky kept his team afloat in his first career NFL start. Unfortunately, it was his ugly mistake on a short throw to Zach Miller that led to an interception and a game-winning field goal for Minnesota late. After the... Read more »

Hey Mike Glennon, You're The Problem

Hey Mike Glennon, You're The Problem
Go ahead and blame the Bears porous receiving core, lack of confidence on offense or the defense. The excuses need to be over and so does the Mike Glennon experiment. We’ve seen enough of the 27-year-old quarterback over the last four weeks to know he is not the long-term answer under center or even a... Read more »

The Howard & Cohen Show propels Bears' first victory in Week 3

The Howard & Cohen Show propels Bears' first victory in Week 3
Somewhere Walter Payton is smiling. As second-year running back Jordan Howard powered down the left sideline for the game-winning 19-yard touchdown in overtime, you could see grit and determination from the former Indiana star. The impressive run carried the Bears to its first victory of the season over Pittsburgh 23-17. He was pumped up as... Read more »

Final thoughts following the Bears' dress rehearsal win

Final thoughts following the Bears' dress rehearsal win
The Bears seem satisfied with Mike Glennon after his turnaround performance in Sunday’s dress rehearsal against Tennesse. Personally, I wouldn’t anoint Glennon the Week 1 starter after his showing in the 19-7 victory. Yes, he completed 11-of-18 passes for 134 yards and a touchdown but he was 7-of-9 for 84 yards on the team’s opening touchdown... Read more »

The Bears lack inspiration in blowout loss to Washington

The Bears lack inspiration in blowout loss to Washington
Any progress that the Bears made with Matt Barkley these past four weeks vanished on Saturday against Washington. In a 41-21 loss, Barkley accounted the most interceptions, five, since Jay Cutler accomplished that feat in his debut season with the Bears in 2009. Barkley managed to complete 23-of-40 passes for two touchdowns, but his decisions... Read more »
