2010 Chicago Bears: Final Evaluation

2010 Chicago Bears: Final Evaluation
Evaluating the 2010 Chicago Bears was a difficult proposition.  There seemed to be a success ultimatum as we believed we were looking at the end of tenures for both Lovie Smith and GM Jerry Angelo.  Make the playoffs or else.  Win a playoff game or else.  The season brought two new coordinators and one of...

Bears/Pack: I Can't Think About Anything Else

I wonder how important this game will be in determining the off-season plan for Jerry Angelo and Bears management.  We know there will be tremendous focus on building the offensive line but if Aaron Rodgers shreds the Bears defense, I wonder how much attention will go their way.  If the defense stops Rodgers cold, you...

Even More Audibles From the Long Snapper

I guess it’s that kind of week.  That kind of game.  For the first time since it’s initial debut, here comes the third Audibles in a single week. Chris Harris/Major Wright – Bears Weakness to Watch The Bears have put no starters on IR this season and are heading into the NFC Championship Game with... Read more »

From Famine to Feast at Receiver, Line, Safety

Yesterday, at Soldier Field, the Chicago Bears won the type of football game I never imagined they could win.  They got into an old fashioned shootout with a good Jets offense, scored thirty-eight points and after refusing to tackle all game saved their best defensive effort for the final minutes.  But yesterday was not about...

Thoughts on the Fifth Straight Victory

First, congrats to Shady – the man the fans decided should enjoy Bears v. Pats with Noah and myself Sunday.  I can’t remember the day Shady first started commenting but he’s been here an awful long time and it’ll be a pleasure to have him buy me a beer (or 3).  Shady, send me an... Read more »

Eagles game Sunday.  The decision was not easy and the entries were terrific but I went with a combination of good story and site loyalty.  JAB will be bringing his eight year-old son and FRESNO his father, set to...

Bears Have Championship Defense

We all wondered, heading into the bye week, whether Lovie Smith and Mike Martz could fix their offensive struggles.  To a certain extent they did, committing to the run and minimizing the risks Jay Cutler takes down the field.  But what’s been even more impressive is that since the bye week the Bears have been...

Random Thoughts on a Disastrous Performance

Some losses hurt.  This one didn’t, at least it didn’t hurt me.  Here are my random thoughts on yesterday’s coaching disaster at Soldier Field.   It is time for Lovie Smith to start exercising some authority on the offensive side of the ball.  Continuing to drop back seven steps with no perimeter blockers is equivalent...

Bears at Panthers Game Preview

It’s hard to predict what the Chicago Bears offense will look like with 116 year-old Todd Collins at the quarterback position.  The Vegas odds are probably on “ugly”.  But sometimes a team needs to win a game ugly to remind themselves they can.  I think Sunday is one of those days when the 2010 Bears...

Second Preseason Game Recap

Second Preseason Game Recap
So watching the first half of tonight’s game, I ran the gamut of emotions.  But I’ll break down my thoughts.  First, special teams. No worries here, though it’d be nice if the Bears had a backup long snapper. Offense.  Clearly the pass-blocking is going to be the focal point of this performance, with Lance Louis being...
