Bears-Packers preview with help from Tony the Packers Fan and Back to the Future

Bears-Packers preview with help from Tony the Packers Fan and Back to the Future
I first met Tony the Packers Fan in the fall of 1996, right around the time of Brett Favre’s apex. I mistakenly invited Tony to my Super Bowl XXXI party in January of 1997, making him the only person in my parents’ house (they had a party, too) who left happy that night. We’ve been... Read more »

Brian Urlacher leaves lasting impression on a generation of Bears fans

Brian Urlacher leaves lasting impression on a generation of Bears fans
For an entire generation of Chicago Bears fans, a hulking 6’4″, 260 lbs. frame draped in the No. 54 will define a decade of their existence. An unknown safety from New Mexico, his selection shocked some of us (Mike North still has the gumption to defend the notion that Sebastian Janikowski would have been a better pick),... Read more »

The Chicago Bears should retire Brian Urlacher’s No. 54
UPDATE: Bears’ chairman of the board, George McCaskey, has since said the team does not intend to retire any more numbers after Mike Ditka’s 89 this season: ”We thought if there is going to be a last one, there is no more appropriate one than 89.

Evaluating the Chicago Bears’ 2013 Draft Class
Now that the NFL Draft is over, it’s time to dissect each of the Bears’ picks and attempt to offer any insight into the thought process that may have gone into each. It has been so far difficult to get any sort of read on Phil Emery’s draft strategy, but I will try my best.... Read more »

Chicago Bears' needs heading into the Draft

Chicago Bears' needs heading into the Draft
The Chicago Bears finished the most important part of Free Agency with a group of players that will not only improve this team in 2013, but, in my opinion, give them a shot at winning the NFC North. Phil Emery worked fast and definitely and used the “legal tampering” period prior to the start of... Read more »

Brian Urlacher's comments remarkably disappointing

Brian Urlacher's comments remarkably disappointing
I don’t think anyone expected a tearful press conference, but if you were to ask most people two years ago how they thought the Brian Urlacher era in Chicago would come to its conclusion, you’d have to imagine that nobody would say that it’d end like this. For 13 years, Urlacher was the face of... Read more »

Is Brian Urlacher a first-ballot Hall of Famer?
Now that Brian Urlacher and the Bears have parted, it seems like a good time to revisit his storied 13-year career in Chicago. He may still sign with another team—if the price is right—but assuming that his career is done, I ask you, Bears fans: Is he a first-ballot Hall of Famer? Now, there are... Read more »

What comes next for Brian Urlacher and the Chicago Bears?

What comes next for Brian Urlacher and the Chicago Bears?
The Chicago Bears have a list of Hall of Fame players who have played at the middle linebacker position. Names like Mike Singletary, who won a Super Bowl in 1985, and Dick Butkus, who some believe is the greatest defensive player to ever play the game.
