Chip Kelly a good fit to replace Lovie Smith?

Chip Kelly a good fit to replace Lovie Smith?
There’s been enough written and said about the job security of Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith. If he’s gone, which is quite likely, time to move forward and think ahead to his replacement. Oregon Ducks head coach Chip Kelly is being recruited by the NFL once again. He turned down the Tampa Bay Buccaneers head job last year and rumors are abound that he’ll replace the soon to be fired Andy Reid in Philadelphia. With a record of 45-7, the highest winning percentage in all of college football, third in the nation in wins over that span, and he’s made a BCS bowl every year he’s coached in Eugene. He’s a hot coaching commodity. And he endorses this website, which is very important. But will his coaching style translate to the NFL...

Jay Cutler endorses Mitt Romney for President

Jay Cutler endorses Mitt Romney for President
The polarizing Chicago Bears quarterback just made himself more polarizing. Jay Cutler has chosen a side politically; ignoring the longstanding unwritten rule for athletes “just shut up and play.” Today he appeared on his weekly segment, the “Jay Cutler Show” on WMVP-AM ESPN 1000, and he was asked by co-host Tom Waddle about his voting...

Chicago Bears 2013 Offseason Game Plan
Guest post by Joey Flaherty Spirits are high in Chicago. The Bears moved to 4-1 with a dominating 41-3 victory in Jacksonville over the weekend.

Bears-Packers wager made by top NASCAR drivers
Typically when NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stars Matt Kenseth and Kurt Busch discuss the “field” it has to do with 41 other drivers and isn’t named “Lambeau,” but on Thursday, Sept. 13 that all changes.

Bears 2012 Schedule has prime time feel

Bears 2012 Schedule has prime time feel
If you want to pick the Chicago Bears to lose a game, take a Monday Night Football road game in December. Forget the myth about “Bear Weather,” Chicago is just not very good in the late season when it’s cold, and pretty awful on Monday night- usually. Only one of their three MNFers is late...

Making the Bears first 2 draft picks

Making the Bears first 2 draft picks
A lot of people have Michael Floyd of Notre Dame mocked to the Chicago Bears in their mock drafts. SO before delving into who I have the Bears taking, I should explain why I don’t have them grabbing Floyd; using excerpts from my mock draft to break it all down.   10. Buffalo, Michael Floyd,...

Bears Might Not get Matt Forte back this Year

Bears Might Not get Matt Forte back this Year
The Chicago Bears season fell apart yesterday after the Kansas City Chiefs shocked them 10-3 on Sunday in Chicago. What seemed like the easiest of wins left on the schedule before QB Jay Cutler returns. Whom are we kidding, Cutler isn’t coming back this year, but if he actually were to return in time for...

Bears Should Really Seriously Consider Signing Terrell Owens

Bears Should Really Seriously Consider Signing Terrell Owens
Ok, so no one showed up at Terrell Owens‘ NFL scout workout day. No team is interested. Aw, poor baby, so sad, too bad. But if if and buts were candy and nuts then we’d all have a merry christmas. The Chicago Bears aren’t really in a position to lose much here. TO is desperate... Read more »

Cutler Directs F-Bomb at Martz?, Putting Win Over Vikings in Perspective

Cutler Directs F-Bomb at Martz?, Putting Win Over Vikings in Perspective
Although Jay Cutler never has said it publicly, we know he must HATE his offensive coordinator Mike Martz; due to his schemes that consistently leave the quarterback a sitting duck with little pass protection. Martz offenses have commonly led the NFL in sacks allowed, and this Chicago Bears team is no different. The have an... Read more »

"Sweetness" Book is Deep, Cumulative Look at Walter Payton, NOT a Sleazy Tell-All

"Sweetness" Book is Deep, Cumulative Look at Walter Payton, NOT a Sleazy Tell-All
Jeff Pearlman‘s new book Sweetness: the Enigmatic Life of Walter Payton is a complete biography; not a hagiography. It paints the greatest runner in Chicago Bears, possibly NFL history as a human being, not a saint. Because that’s who Walter Payton was- a person with many virtues and faults, character concerns and contradictions, just like... Read more »
