Time To Send Parkey Packing

Time To Send Parkey Packing
I have been attempting to write this since last Sunday, but am only now, on Thursday night, having any success putting my thoughts down in print. Following the “double doink”, the play that cemented Chicago Bears kicker Cody Parkey into Chicago sports history forever (in a Steve Bartman kind of way), I immediately left the... Read more »

Does Chase Daniel Have The Best Job In The World?

Does Chase Daniel Have The Best Job In The World?
Blue Mountain State was a sitcom that premiered on Spike TV in 2010 and ran for three seasons. To put it simply, the show was absurd (take a look at the opening. Now imagine what an actual episode would entail). The series followed a fictional college football team, the Blue Mountain State Mountain Goats, focusing... Read more »

I Am Thankful For Mack, Lauri, And A Whole Lot More

I Am Thankful For Mack, Lauri, And A Whole Lot More
As I sat at my dining room table yesterday, surrounded by my family and copious amounts of food, we began to go around the table and say what we were thankful for. Admittedly, I was rather annoyed. For the record, I have nothing against the exercise of discussing what everyone was thankful for at all.... Read more »

Bears Weather This Sunday

Bears Weather This Sunday
I swear it was a good idea at the time, but looking back, I regret everything. It was a warm August night when the deed was done. Some drinks were had; conversation flowed with ease among friends. More drinks followed and what then followed those drinks (besides more drinks) was arguably the greatest plan that... Read more »

What Should We Think Of The NFC North?

What Should We Think Of The NFC North?
When training camps began at the end of July this year, most people would have agreed that the NFC North was one of the toughest, if the not the toughest, divisions in the NFL. The Minnesota Vikings, coming off an impressive postseason run, were in the conversation of Super Bowl contenders after adding Kirk Cousins... Read more »

When Is It Ok To Start Worrying About Trubisky?

When Is It Ok To Start Worrying About Trubisky?
I am constantly reminded by talking heads, Twitter, and the Bears faithful,  that Sunday was our quarterback’s 28th career start since high school (definitely the 1st time that fact about an NFL quarterback has been brought to my attention). I am told not to forget the Bear’s win over the weekend was just our quarterback’s... Read more »

This Brand of Football Sure Looks Familiar

This Brand of Football Sure Looks Familiar
As I recklessly high-fived my buddies next to me, Prince Amukamara returned an interception for a touchdown to seal up a Chicago Bears victory on the TV screens in front of me. Immediately following the touchdown, a tidal wave of Bears defense nostalgia swept over the the entire bar (possibly just me, but I am... Read more »

Mack Was Who We Thought He Was

Mack Was Who We Thought He Was
I am not going to delve into the final outcome of the Chicago Bears Sunday night season opener against our lifetime rival Green Bay Packers. Dissecting the game, specifically the 4th quarter, would just be too hard right now. It’s just too soon. However, that doesn’t mean we still can’t talk about the Bears. So,... Read more »

Mack To The Playoffs

Mack To The Playoffs
On Saturday morning I woke up around seven, checked my phone, put my slippers on, puttered into the living room (I consider myself old enough to putter around the house at this point), flipped on SportsCenter (is it just me or has it gotten good again?), and started to make breakfast (veggie omelette. It was... Read more »

Make James Daniels A Center Again

This April, the Chicago Bears selected James Daniels in the second round of the NFL draft. Daniels played center at the University of Iowa. As of this Friday,... Read more »
