Is Jay Cutler really the second coming of Jeff George?

Is Jay Cutler the next Jeff George? Get outta here! There’s plenty of time for Cutler to eventually become one of the elite quarterbacks of the game. If someone was in your face all day at work, I’d bet you wouldn’t perform as well as you’d like to. Besides, he doesn’t have enough around him... Read more »

My Tribute to Walter Payton

Originally posted on last year in November 1st marks the 11th anniversary of Walter Payton’s death. I will always remember where I was and what I was doing that night. I came home around 5:30PM from yet another uneventful college day, tossed some leftovers in the microwave and turned on the TV. At the... Read more »

Bears t-shirt sweepstakes

I know some of my fellow Bears fans are down because of the 2 straight losses at home. Just keep in mind that the Bears have a bye week with time to right the ship and make a push for the playoffs. To lighten things up, I’m giving away one these Bears t-shirts, courtesy of... Read more »

Bears in a good position to make the playoffs

Nobody is happy with how the Bears are playing as of late but I still have faith that the beloved can hang on to win the NFC North, make a run in the playoffs and possibly win the Super Bowl. Yeah I said it. If you look at the records around the league, there are... Read more »

Who deserves a Pro Bowl vote?

His sack numbers are down but still dominant.
Let’s face it… the 4-3 Bears are atop the NFC North but stumble into the bye week. The Seahawks game should’ve been won but a kick return was nullified because of a phantom holding call on Rod Wilson. The outcome of the Redskins would’ve been different but Lovie Smith didn’t challenge a goal line fumble.... Read more »

Live 4th Phase feed of Bears vs. Redskins

Graphic courtesy of Jorge Bach The game against the Redskins is a must-win for the Bears.  The Bears need this win to separate themselves from the Packers and Vikings. The Packers are banged up but still dangerous and the Vikings look to be a team that could hit their stride by the time they face the Bears... Read more »

Smith, Martz and Tice playing nice... for now

The Bears brought in Chester Taylor this offseason to spell Matt Forte and help carry the load not sit on the bench for most of the game. Taylor’s 49 touches (carries and receptions) compared to Forte’s 101 touches. While Forte is an exceptional pass catcher, Taylor possesses the nearly the skill and is a better... Read more »

Keys to the game against the Redskins

The Bears face a must win game because a win will help solidify this team’s place in the NFC. They’ve been called the worst 4-2 team in history and here’s their chance to prove the critics  wrong. Offensively, the Bears will need show more balance by staying committed to the run and they need to... Read more »

Bears players taking their own stance on "devastating hits"

With the concerns over concussions now front and center, the NFL is taking a harsh stance against “devastating hits”. This season, just like other seasons, we see concussions week after week.  The truth is, this game is more than just a physical contact sport. It’s become a violent collision sport and this is part of... Read more »

Cutler named one of the most overrated players in the NFL

In a report, 3 percent of all NFL players named Jay Cutler as one of the 10 most  overrated players in the league. Brian Urlacher has made this list (I think) a couple times, but we know that is a complete fallacy because the Bears defense is a completely different unit with him on... Read more »
