Blog launch: Fire Lovie Smith

Three straight seasons missing the playoffs. Why does this man still have a job? We may have just launched the shortest-lived blog in ChicagoNow history. But if that’s the case, blogger Mike Burzawa will be just fine with it. Mike, who you may already know from Bears Game Day, today debuts Fire Lovie Smith, which... Read more »

Fire Lovie Smith: Good idea or bad?

(Photo by Chicago Tribune) (Photo by Chicago Tribune) After getting pummeled for the second time in three weeks, it should come as no surprise that some Bears fans want to see head coach Lovie Smith fired. David Kaplan wrote a piece today on “Kap’s Corner” saying Lovie has to go, he’s out of touch with... Read more »

Bears win doesn't impress anybody

(Photo by Stacey Wescott, Chicago Tribune) ChicagoNow’s newest sports blogger, the astute and quite bald Mike Nadel, wrote “rarely has a team that won a game by 4 TDs left a stadium with less of a feeling of accomplishment than the Bears did Sunday.” That about sums it up. This was probably the least enjoyable... Read more »

Bears vs. Falcons: Prediction time

Hey, want to take a trip down memory lane! (Getty Images) Last year’s game in Atlanta was probably Lovie Smith’s worst coaching effort and only because of one unbelievably dumb decision. The Bears went ahead 20-19 with 11 seconds left, but instead of kicking deep Robbie Gould pooched it. Matt Ryan threw a 26-yard pass... Read more »

From Bills to Bears: Why Terrell Owens needs to come to Chicago

Terrell Owens (AP Photo) Despite some early success with Devin Hester and Johnny Knox, if there’s one position the Bears need to upgrade it’s at wide receiver. Enter Terrell Owens. ESPN’s Adam Schefter floated the rumor and now it’s a runaway train. This isn’t going to die until the Bears, or Buffalo Bills for that... Read more »

Bears vs. Lions: Prediction time

One win was all it took to turn Lions fans into jackasses. The following people picked Seattle to beat the Bears last Sunday: Bill80, Brad Palmer, and gravedigger. They chose…poorly. The rest of us, who are so very wise, knew the Bears would win and I’m sure remained confident when they trailed 13-0 in the... Read more »
