What's next for the Bears? 10 offseason predictions

With the season ending debacle, we’ll need to look forward to the offseason and wait and see what the Bears will do to solidify their roster for another run next season. Phil Emery has plenty of work ahead of him. He’ll have to use the same magic he used to rebuild the offense but this... Read more »

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.

As a diehard, half-glass-full fan, I put my faith in Caleb Hanie. I want the guy to succeed. This past offseason, he signed a one year extension because he probably figured that he would get his chance to play after the Todd Collins experiment failed and having watched Jay Cutler get destroyed. He finally has... Read more »

Bears should claim McNabb

If he’s available the Bears should put in a claim for Chicago native Donovan McNabb. There was a time, Pre-Jay Cutler, when I imagined McNabb coming back home when the Bears needed a quarterback and when rumors swirled about McNabb leaving the Eagles. McNabb had been unappreciated in Philadelphia for his entire career. I imagined... Read more »

Caleb Hanie makes Martz nervous

Relax, Mike Martz. The other day you said the receivers can be the strength of the team and we can etch that in granite. Consider it done. The media and bloggers have etched that on granite for you…on the web.  Now you say that Caleb Hanie makes you nervous because you don’t really know what he could do. The 4th Phase... Read more »
