#4thPhase Tweets: Raiders loot Hanie for 3 interceptions

#4thPhase Tweets: Raiders loot Hanie for 3 interceptions
Honestly, I’m not really upset the Bears lost to the Raiders at the Black Hole. They’re a tough team and Oakland is a tough place to play. At the end of the day, the Bears still hold the top Wild Card spot. At the same time, they failed to separate themselves from the pack of... Read more »

Angelo and Smith face their toughest challenge

Angelo and Smith face their toughest challenge
I’ve been a Jerry Angelo fan. Ive been called an Angelo apologist among other things. When he came in, he made Dick Jauron earn his job and he responded by leading the Bears to a 13-3 record in 2001. When he didn’t live up to his expectations, Angelo canned him. He brought in Lovie Smith... Read more »

#4thPhase Tweets: Bears win fifth in a row but lose at the same time

#4thPhase Tweets: Bears win fifth in a row but lose at the same time
The Bears beat the Chargers for their fifth straight, the first time since the 2005. While we should be celebrating, many of us are panicking because Jay Cutler could be out for the rest of the regular season. If he can’t go, I’m confident in Caleb Hanie. Hanie showed us something last season against the... Read more »

Cutler injured: Not the end of the season

Cutler injured: Not the end of the season
As a Bears fan, you have to be shocked about Jay Cutler’s injury that will sideline him for the rest of the regular season. If you’ve been living in a cave, Cutler broke his thumb while he was in pursuit after he threw an interception. I’ve already seen tweets from national media guys about how... Read more »

Offensive line allows Bears to run on all cylinders

Photo: This is not the same offensive line that gave up 9 sacks in the first half against the Giants. This is also not the same group that force the Bears to be a one-dimensional offense. Roberto Garza’s return and Chris Williams’ shift to left guard are proving to be the most important roster... Read more »

Public Enemy Number 1: Ndamukong Suh

I’m looking past the final preseason game against the Cleveland Browns because it won’t mean anything. The starters will probably play only one series, get the opportunity to rest up and mentally prepare for their season opener against the Detroit Lions. Attention Olin Kreutz, Roberto Garza, Lance Louis, Frank Omiyale and Chris Williams. Ndamukong Suh... Read more »

The Most Important Player On Offense

Football is the ultimate team sport. It’s almost impossible to single out the most important player on any team, unlike basketball. In hoops, you need one superstar player to make a team relevant. What makes football the greatest team sport is that each position is interdependent of each other. The Bears quarterback carousel has been... Read more »

Offensive line will continue to progress under Tice

For the Bears to have any success on offense, the offensive line needs to protect Jay Cutler and open up running lanes for Matt Forte and Chester Taylor. As part of their big offseason, the Bears brought in former Minnesota Vikings head coach, Mike Tice. Tice will always be known for his “Randy Ratio” when... Read more »

Part 2: The Bears are NOT going to be cellar dwellers

Here’s part two of my response to the Bleacher Reports‘ David Gerstein and his post about why he thinks the Bears will be cellar dwellers. While some have compared Cutler to Rex Grossman as Gerstein does, many have also compared Cutler to Brett Favre.  Under the tutelage of Martz, you can expect better results. Last year, Matt Forte was hurt,... Read more »

Bears continue their busy offseason... Pack your bags Gabriel

This past Tuesday, the Bears fired Greg Gabriel, the director of college scouting. His job description was to schedule scouting visits, coordinate scouting meetings, evaluate collegiate players and play a major role in the development of the Bears draft plan. Bottom line… find the best players to draft.  To his credit, he did bring in... Read more »
