2012: A Horrible Year For Chicago Sports

2012 is finally over and it couldn’t have come fast enough.  In my 27 years on earth I can’t remember a more depressing and all around disaster of a year in Chicago sports than 2012.  All five of the major sports teams had little to no success and either suffered from collapses, injuries or just...

Bears Still Hopeful, But Playoffs Still Seem Hopeless

The Bears did their part by beating the lowly Arizona Cardinals in Phoenix 28-13 thanks to the defense returning to form and keeping their playoff hopes alive at least for another week.  The score may have read 28-13 but it sure didn’t feel like a dominant victory by any means.  The offense continued its season...

With Season on the Line, Lovie Needs to Put Up or Shut Up

It will be around 6:30 PM Central time on Sunday when we will learn whether the Bears have given themselves a chance at the playoffs or if they squander it with a loss to the Cardinals.  Should the Bears lose it will also be the official beginning of the “Fire Lovie Smith” campaign.  Smith has...

The Bears Are Closer to Collapse Than Contenders

Another Sunday, another Bears loss.  That is the pattern as of late and with the season rapidly winding down there aren’t many more Sundays left for mistakes.  The Bears lost to the Green Bay Packers for the second time this season and for the sixth time straight.  The Packers left Soldier Field NFC North champions...

The Bears' Defense Is Now A Cause For Concern

In this city we are used to the Bears’ defense being the offense of the team.  Creating turnovers, scoring plays and leaving opposing quarterbacks battered and bruised.  These last few games have shown us a different side of the defense we haven’t seen very often.  They look bad.  Not just bad, but old.  Two of...

Cutler, Bears Go Down To Texans 13-6

It was going to be a tough test for the Bears offense to move the ball consistently against a tough Texans defense.  It got even tougher when Jay Cutler left the game at halftime with a concussion.  Backup Jason Campbell couldn’t jump start the stagnant offense and the Bears fell to the Texans 13-6 in...

Music City Murder: Tillman, Bears Destroy Titans In 51-20 Rout

When Charles Tillman’s football career is over he can always find a job as a teacher.  His patented “ball punch” will certainly be a move coaches around the league attempt to integrate into their defensive players’ repertoire after Sunday.  Tillman flat out dominated the Titans by personally forcing four fumbles as the Bears cruised to...

The 'Attitude' Debate? Give Me That Any Day Over Another QB Controversy

Going a day without hearing someone talk about Jay Cutler’s attitude or demeanor is like turning on the Weather Channel and not hearing about Hurricane Sandy. It ain’t happening! The Bears are off to a 6-1 start and look to be contenders for a spot in the Super Bowl but all I have been hearing... Read more »

Why The Bears Are Super Bowl Bound

You may want to start checking for flights to New Orleans in early February.  You also might want to dust off those pairs of Zubaz pants in your attic and find a cassette player that can blare the ‘Super Bowl Shuffle’ because our Chicago Bears are heading to the Super Bowl!  You read that correctly,...
