Bears. Lions. Rapid Fire.
I never liked the Bears to win this week in Detroit but I must admit the way they lost surprised me. A bunch of pre-tape thoughts are coming here. Remember these are based on initial viewing only: Jay Cutler was awful and he knows it. “I just missed the throws,” said Jay Cutler. “They are throws... Read more »

Final thoughts: If the Bears win this game there will be a legitimate buzz around this team as they head back home for their next two against the Saints and Giants. If they split those games they’d be 5-1 with ten days off to prepare for an awful Redskins defense. The schedule gets progressively more... Read more »

Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions Game Preview

Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions Game Preview
All signs this week point to a letdown for the Chicago Bears. They are 3-0, riding high, coming off an emotional prime time victory over a desperate team in hostile conditions.

THIS LIONS FAN WAS ENJOYABLE If NFL Network just scrapped their unbearably awful programming and aired thirty-two videos like this on Monday, wouldn’t be a far more popular network? It’s fun to watch a fan start by telling us he’s not upset and then slowly watch him descend into madness. ___________________________________________ STUPID SPORTS MOTIVATIONAL TWEET... Read more »

A Quick Paragraph on Each NFC North Team

A Quick Paragraph on Each NFC North Team
Green Bay Packers Tom Crabtree is gone. Greg Jennings in gone. The Packers did not make a significant move to upgrade the running back position. But forgive me if I’m not sounding the “fade from glory” alarm for the club up in Green Bay just yet. The modern Pack regime does not make flashy moves... Read more »
