Complete Bears Mock Draft: Rounds 1-7

Complete Bears Mock Draft: Rounds 1-7
At the end of April each year, every team in the NFL is given the unique opportunity to drastically change the makeup of their team overnight. Free Agency used to be sexy, but like Tara Reid, is old news. The NFL Draft reigns supreme.  It has turned into a spectacle that no other sport’s draft comes near to... Read more »

Bears NFL Draft Preview: Top 5 Outside Linebackers

Bears NFL Draft Preview: Top 5 Outside Linebackers
The Bears had enough problems last year to provide Jay-Z with content to record “99 Problems: Part 2”, but without question,  the most glaring catastrophe had to be the lackluster players that made up our linebacker core (due to recent events, Jay-Z might want to abandon association with that song, as he definitely has that 100th...

Bears NFL Draft Preview: Top 5 Cornerbacks

Bears NFL Draft Preview: Top 5 Cornerbacks
Kyle Fuller is still on probation for his uneven play throughout 2015 and Tracey Porter is nothing more than a band-aid at this point.

Those two had their fair share of Lou Malnatis. I miss those guys).  We can definitely... Read more »

Forget the Math: '96 Bulls Were Better

Forget the Math: '96 Bulls Were Better
With their 125-104 victory last night, the Golden State Warriors had completed the best regular season in NBA history with a record of 73-9. Yes, 73-9 is equal to a .890 winning percentage, which is a tick better than the .878 winning percentage the 1996 Chicago Bulls team posted during their then-record breaking 72-10 season....

Bears NFL Draft Preview: Top 5 Safeties

Bears NFL Draft Preview: Top 5 Safeties
In every draft for the last 5 years, when it’s the Bears turn to select in the first and second round, I look at all the “playmakers” (did Pace overuse that word or what this off-season? Also, how good was the one season of “Playmakers” on ESPN before the NFL shut it down?) available at... Read more »
