Soldier Field's Grass is a Disaster

Soldier Field's Grass is a Disaster
I’ve written about why Soldier Field needs to switch the grass playing surface to FieldTurf. For one, it’s not grass. It’s slop. Grass doesn’t grow in the colder months. Two, the Chicago Park District holds other events in Soldier Field all year including during the season. Lastly, it slows down the Bears. This era’s Bears... Read more »

Lance Briggs Not A Top 10 LB

The Worldwide Leader ranked their top 10 linebackers and Lance Briggs was not one of them. Brian Urlacher finished 6th.  Just like Trent Dilfer about Jay Cutler, ESPN has got this all wrong. Briggs has been to six consecutive Pro Bowls and was an All-Pro as recently as 2009. Sure he doesn’t recorded huge sack numbers but... Read more »

Players that deserve Pro Bowl consideration

Looks like he has finally found a home. This has been his best season as a pro.
Three Bears were voted into the Pro Bowl. To no ones surprise, Julius Peppers and Brian Urlacher, both earned a trip to Hawaii as both should be in the running for Defensive Player of the Year. Devin Hester, the GOAT, earned a trip as well. For the Bears to only have three Pro Bowlers doesn’t... Read more »

Brett Favre rooting for the Bears to beat the Packers

After getting knocked out of the game and quite possibly for the rest of his career (compliments of rookie, Corey Wootton), Brett Favre is now a Bears fan. Well, maybe not, but he will be rooting for the Bears to beat the Packers in the season finale. Here’s what he told Julius Peppers after Monday... Read more »

Bears outclassed by the Patriots

This game was supposed to be where the Bears put up a fight and showed the world that they’re legit. At the very least, if the Bears lost and played a good enough game against the Patriots, they would have earned the respect of all the critics. Instead, the Bears looked like they were playing...

All 4 Phases need to bring their A game vs. the Patriots

If the win over the Eagles was a STATEMENT game, then this game against the Patriots is a TEST. A win over the Patriots will silence all the critics. All good teams are measured by how they play against Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. Sunday’s forecast call for temperatures in the 20s, a blustery wind... Read more »

Matchups the Bears need to win vs. the Patriots

This is the game the Bears need to win to silence their critics for once and for all. Beating the Patriots, would legitimize the Bears’ success. Tom Brady will be making his first visit to Soldier Field. The forecast for Sunday is a high of 23 with 70 percent chance of snow and 27-mph winds.... Read more »

The Monsters of the Midway are back

During Training Camp, Lovie Smith wanted to bring back the Monsters of the Midway brand of football back. Through 11 games this season, it looks like the Monsters of the Midway are back, just ask DeSean Jackson. After fielding a punt, Jackson made sure he didn’t get hit by oncoming defenders bearing down on him... Read more »

Vick to get a steady dose of Peppers and Urlacher

Michael Vick is hands down the most athletic quarterback the NFL has seen. Lucky enough for him, he has to face one of the league’ s most dominant defenses, led by 2 of the most athletic defensive players he’ll ever see. The Bears rank 1st in points allowed, 2nd in rushing yards allowed, 1st in... Read more »

Tale of the Tape - Brian Urlacher vs. Michael Vick

Earlier in the decade, Brian Urlacher and Michael Vick represented a new era of the NFL that was going to be built on speed and athleticism. Both athletes had the talent and speed at their respective positions the league hasn’t seen before. Urlacher and Vick are now a little older and have probably lost a... Read more »
