Devin Hester clarifies retirement comments on Twitter

Devin Hester clarifies retirement comments on Twitter
Earlier this week the Chicago Bears Devin Hester made comments about how NFL football is no longer fun for him and how he thinks this could be the end of his career. He also said his family is a factor and he needs to take that into account regarding his decision about his future. These comments came on the same day Bears coach Lovie Smith was fired, and given how close Hester was to Lovie, there was speculation that the two incidents were related. Also factor in that Hester, one of the NFL’s most dangerous return men in history did nothing on kick returns in 2012, and had a very non-descript year catching the ball, and it’s easy to see why he made such comments of frustration. But today he clarified...

670 The Score Bears Overcoverage: unlistenable self-promotion

670 The Score Bears Overcoverage: unlistenable self-promotion
How much Chicago Bears coverage is enough? Everyone in the media, including myself, is guilty of ridiculous over-coverage of the team. But 670 The Score is by far the worst offender. And a major reason they do it is to promote their sister station, WBBM, which broadcasts the team’s games on the radio. Obviously, this is a Bears town first. Whether the team is winning or losing.

(It even helped me remember the difference between bear market and bull market, who was up in the ’90s and who was down?) The Bulls come third, and then there’s a drop off to the White Sox and Blackhawks. So I understand how much the Bears move the needle, and the media must follow suit...

Brian Urlacher had an interesting view of the Chicago Bears loss to the Green Bay Packers yesterday. His view from IR was quite opinionated. Maybe this is the end of his days with the Bears? Or the end of his NFL career? During his weekly appearance on the local Chicago FOX news program he had some choice words for Bears fans, the media and those who think Bears coach Lovie Smith should be fired...

Bears Chris Conte rips fans in Tweet; channels George W. Bush
Remember after 9/11 when then President George W. Bush proclaimed “you’re either with us, or with the terrorists” to the entire world? Well the NFL version of that came today after the Green Bay Packers beat the Chicago Bears and put the Bears in serious jeopardy of making the playoffs.

Chicago magazine has just released it’s 2012 list of the most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes in the city (25-year-old Sara Collins looks yummy!).
