10 Definitive Factors of the 2012 Season: #s 10-6
The Chicago Bears have failed to reach the postseason in 2012 and it has cost Lovie Smith his head coaching job. Today and tomorrow I’ll present my ten definitive factors/moments/developments of the 2012 campaign. They are the reasons the Bears succeeded and – perhaps more important – failed over the course of this roller coaster... Read more »

Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings Game Preview

Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings Game Preview
It is very difficult to write another game preview for Bears v. Vikings when I just wrote one two weeks ago and almost nothing has changed. The Bears still need the game. The Vikings still need the game. Percy Harvin is not playing. Adrian Peterson and Jared Allen are. But I shall do so anyway.... Read more »

Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears Game Preview

Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears Game Preview
Simple game to evaluate. WHY DO I LIKE THE CHICAGO BEARS THIS WEEK? I always like the Chicago Bears. I think Jay Cutler is coming back. I think the Bears defense is angry they looked so awful Monday night. I think Percy Harvin will be limited due to a nagging ankle injury. Harvin is an... Read more »

Breaking Down the Minnesota Vikings

Here are my thoughts on the Minnesota Vikings, as currently constructed, as the Bears prepare to face them in the horribly cold conditions at the University of Minnesota.  I’m straying from the normal analysis and trying to look at this one a bit differently. I want Percy Harvin to start.  I have sung Dave Toub’s... Read more »

Monday Night May Decide Lovie's Fate

No one know where the Bears and Vikings are going to play their Monday Night Football contest.  The Metrodome roof is about a shaky as Frank Omiyale’s blindside protection and TCF Bank Stadium – the outdoor facility home to the University of Minnesota’s football team – needs to know by the end of Tuesday whether...

Three Ways To Beat the Vikings

Prevent the Big AP Run I never believe in the statistics when it comes to the Bears rush defense, especially against AP.  Peterson has had a knack for playing possum throughout a first half and then breaking an 85 yarder and breaking open the football game.  For me, this responsibility falls squarely on the shoulders...

The (Injured) Long Snapper Hits the NFC North

THE CHICAGO BEARS SIGNED TODD COLLINS and it’s a wise move.  I’d like to see Collins log some serious minutes this weekend against the Cardinals as the Bears were essentially running out the clock after Cutler’s exit from the Raiders game.  Collins also sounds like a pretty confident guy, “It’s a hard offense to learn, especially...

Audibles From the Long Snapper

Why I Don’t Mind Not Having Number One PicksGerald McCoy is waiting for Sam Bradford to sign.  Ndamukong Suh and the Lions haven’t even begun speaking.  NFL franchises are about to invest huge percentages of their salary caps into unproven commodities who most likely won’t be able to make an on-field impact until the middle...

More Audibles From the Long Snapper

StarCaps Trail Over: Suspensions UnlikelyThe entire StarCaps situation, from start to finish, has been an utter disaster for the NFL.  They have all-but begged the legal world to punish the Williams sisters while the Vikings and Minnesota court system has laughed and gone about their business.  Now the jury-less trial is over and Florio at...

Audibles From the Long Snapper

Sharper Has Knee Surgery The reason Darren Sharper has yet to sign a contract for 2010 is rapidly becoming clear as the New Orleans Times-Picayune is reporting that Sharper was on crutches following knee surgery.  I’ve been an advocate of signing Sharper for over a year but a player at that age with injury concerns...
