1st Goal, Beat the Packers. 2nd Goal, win NFC North. 3rd Goal...

The Bears came, saw and conquered the NFC North. Crown them the 2010 NFC North Division Champs. Take that Trent Dilfer, Adam Schein and all the other national media skeptics that lead the Bears-still-suck parade. Say what you will about the Bears. They’ve executed when they had to, adjusted on the fly and most importantly... Read more »

Packer lose - NFC North is for the Bears to take

With the Packers losing to the Patriots tonight, the Bears can clinch the NFC North with a win over the Vikings. The Bears should not overlook a down Vikings team that will start their third string quarterback, Joe Webb. As we saw in the Patriots-Packers game anything can happen and the Packers gave the Pats...

TCF Stadium field 'unplayable' - Player safety not an issue?

Vikings TE Visanthe Shianco says the field is cleared up but also said there are a couple slick spots. In a season where concussions and player safety have taken center stage, I’m really surprised by how the NFL is handling this field situation around the Bears-Vikings game. From Brad Biggs on Chicago Breaking Sports: “Serious... Read more »

Crown'em NFC North Champs this weekend! It’s a wrap folks! The Bears will become NFC North champs after this weekend. Plenty of skeptics predicted the Bears would finish 3rd in the North and maybe below the Lions. With this… Yes, on behalf of those who believed, I will go ahead and say, “I told you so”.  The Bears will face... Read more »

I think it’s time for a new stadium. In the meantime, I wouldn’t mind the Bears playing outdoors this weekend.

Packers keep pace with the Bears

It was supposed to be another epic battle between the Vikings and Packers. This game was supposed to a high noon shoot out where the ole gunslinger faced the quarterback that ran him out of town for the last time. It was supposed to be where Brett Favre would have the last laugh against Aaron... Read more »

Bears 4 Phases beat the Vikings

Courtesy of Johnathan Daniel/Getty Images Brian Urlacher and Brett Favre have met each other 15 times in their careers, the most times for both players. Favre stepped into Soldier Field for the very last time and the Bears sent him home with a loss. Coming into the game, Brian Urlacher had a 7-8 all-time record... Read more »

Bears win convincingly... Pessimism needs to stop!

Honestly, I’m tired of the attitude some Bears fans have had for most of the season. For the most part, plenty of Bears fans wrote off the team even before the season started. I expect this type of sentiment from the national media, not Bears fans, the greatest fan base in the NFL. We’ve heard... Read more »

Favre will play his last game at Soldier Field on Sunday

Brett Favre is in his 20th NFL season and this will be his last. He confirmed it in an interview with the NFL Network’s Steve Mariucci that is scheduled to air on Sunday.  As much as I hate the guy, I still respect one of the greatest players of all time. Against the Bears, he... Read more »

Who's more dominant? Julius Peppers or Jared Allen

The Manny Pacquiao – Antonio Margarito showdown isn’t the only one going on this weekend. The Julius Peppers – Jared Allen showdown will be happening at Soldier Field on Sunday. Peppers and Allen are often mentioned in the same sentence when it comes to dominant pass rushers so naturally it’s only fair to compare their... Read more »
