Seating expansion of Soldier Field?

Mayor Rahm Emanuel is exploring the idea of expanding Soldier Field’s seating capacity by 5,000 seats. It currently holds 61,500 and is the smallest stadium in the NFL despite Chicago being the second largest market in the league. While this is great news for Bears fans, I’m just wondering where they’ll fit the seats? Above... Read more »

Former Bears GM Jerry Angelo critical of Jay Cutler

Let’s just say this is bulletin board material. Not sure where this came from but  From former Bears general manager Jerry Angelo’s blog, The Score’s Joe Ostrowski tweeted: Jerry Angelo on Cutler: “Has all the physical tools, but inconsistent in the clutch. Mostly due to a lack of poise.” (1/3) #Bears — Joe Ostrowski (@JoeO670) February... Read more »

Being on the pro-Jay Cutler side of the debate

A couple days ago, I wrote about what goes through the mind of a Jay Cutler hater. It’s funny because some haters actually nodded in agreement with the post and they failed to see how dumb their logic really is. The supporters just shrug, shake their head, and let the dumb be dumb.

The thought process of a Jay Cutler hater

After Jay Cutler signed his seven-year $126 million contract, I’ve had many discussions and debates (sometimes heated) about whether or not it was the right decision.

Hilarious reaction from a young Bears fan getting a Packers jersey

This is awesome! Bear Down!    

Bears lose to Vikings: Lack the killer instinct

I’m not really mad about Trestman opting to kick a field goal on second down to end the game. Robbie Gould is usually money from any distance to win the game. He just missed. I’m more mad about the sequence of plays following the Khaseem Greene interception in the 4th quarter. After the McCown fumble,... Read more »

Cutler aiming for an early return

All is not lost Bears fans. After the initial four-week prognosis, Jay Cutler is aiming to return before then. Brandon Marshall eluded to this last week but Marc Trestman cautioned against an early return. Bears have a tough game against the Packers at Lambeau, then at home against the Ravens. Cutler could be back in... Read more »
