Defense bails out Chicago Bears sputtering offense yet again in win over Bucs

Defense bails out Chicago Bears sputtering offense yet again in win over Bucs
Shocking, right? Over and over we all say we can’t get a pulse on this Chicago Bears team this year, that there’s no second-guessing this team or this season, and week after week, the Bears continue to prove how true those statements are. In another par-for-the-course surprise, this win allows the Bears to just barely... Read more »

Taking their show on the road: Thoughts on the Chicago Bears’ 27-13 win in Atlanta

Taking their show on the road: Thoughts on the Chicago Bears’ 27-13 win in Atlanta
I hate to be “that guy,” but indulge me for a minute, would you? Each week, the Chicago Bears Huddle staff members are asked to write a short paragraph, offering up a few sentences on what we think will happen during the upcoming game and predicting the final score. We generally file these one to... Read more »

Despite promising start, Chicago Bears fall to Carolina Panthers 31-24

Despite promising start, Chicago Bears fall to Carolina Panthers 31-24
Just three of us at Chicago Bears Huddle came into Sunday’s game an even .500 at 2-2. I was one of them, and I had selected the Bears to defeat the Carolina Panthers on the road. Sadly, Chicago continues to be a difficult team to trust, and they fell to the Panthers, dropping to 2-3... Read more »

The Chicago Bears: Plugging holes in a sinking ship

The Chicago Bears: Plugging holes in a sinking ship
Consider this metaphor for a second: The Chicago Bears are like a ship with several holes in its hull. And Marc Trestman, the Captain of said ship, has been given the unenviable task of plugging each and every one of those holes. If you are a Chicago Bears fan, you have purchased a passenger ticket...

Chicago Bears not yet on same level as Green Bay Packers

Chicago Bears not yet on same level as Green Bay Packers
How many Chicago Bears fans went to work this week, miserably wearing Packers gear, after losing bets to their buddies and being made to endure the shame of wearing green and gold, while their friends gloated behind them taking selfies? What seemed, at least for the first half of the game, as a possible win... Read more »

Chicago Bears Week-1 loss may have been the best thing for them

Chicago Bears Week-1 loss may have been the best thing for them
Three weeks into this young NFL season, I have absolutely no clue if the Chicago Bears are really any good. Are they just lucky things have gone their way so far? While it always takes a little luck along the way to win a championship, something about this year still leaves me feeling like this team...

Chicago Bears: Mel Tucker’s defense starting to emerge

Chicago Bears: Mel Tucker’s defense starting to emerge
Mel Tucker has been criticized ruthlessly for his defensive unit’s performance last season. Most people didn’t see him coming back for a second year, but Trestman and the coaching staff stood by him, and now his teachings and fundamentals are finally coming to fruition. Tucker has always had a similar philosophy to the former Chicago... Read more »

Takeaways: Chicago Bears defeat New York Jets 27-19
With five Week-1 starters out, I have to admit I was a bit nervous (but cautiously optimistic) about the Chicago Bears chances in Monday night’s game. Only three weeks into the season, the Bears have lost Charles Tillman (replaced by Kyle Fuller) to a triceps injury, who is now out for the season and helping... Read more »

With Charles Tillman out, Bears look to future in Kyle Fuller

With Charles Tillman out, Bears look to future in Kyle Fuller
The shot NBC got on the Chicago Bears’ sideline of veteran cornerback Charles Tillman in tears broke the heart of anyone who has followed the guy they call “Peanut” throughout his career. Tillman has become the backbone of this defense in recent years, thriving on his uncanny and unmatched ability to turn the ball over.... Read more »

Cilché or not, the Chicago Bears are exactly who we thought they were

Cilché or not, the Chicago Bears are exactly who we thought they were
Not since October 16th of 2006 have the Chicago Bears come back from a deficit of 14 or more in the fourth quarter and won the game. That game was against the Arizona Cardinals, and then head coach of the team, Denis Green, went on his now infamous rant after the game. “They are who... Read more »
