Offensive Line, Offensive Line, Offensive Line...

There is a belief in the sports world that the NFL season is now 52 weeks long and allows coaches and organizations only the short break between the end of their season and the start of the scouting combine in Indianapolis (the shorter that break, the more successful your season). For the Chicago Bears, I’m... Read more »

Positional Analysis: Offensive Line

The Bears had serious issues on the offensive line at the end of the 2009 season.  In mid-January they hired one of the best line coaches in the sport, Mike Tice.  They believed their second-year, first-round draft pick would assume the role of top tier left tackle.  They believed Frank Omiyale’s versatility would be an...

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...

Thoughts on Division Round Dominance

It was as dominant as the Chicago Bears have been this season, only letting the Seahawks make the game look closer by mailing in the last five minutes or so.  I have a lot of thoughts. Good for Jay Cutler.  After taking some of the most personally pointed abuse of his career by Dick Reilly,... 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 an Exhilarating Victory

The 2010 Chicago Bears announced their presence to the NFL yesterday afternoon by soundly defeating the overhyped and overmatched Philadelphia Eagles.  Here are my thoughts. Nobody has been more critical of the man than me but Lovie Smith is my NFL Coach of the Year right now.  His turning around this team coming off the bye... Read more »

Many Thoughts on the Canadian Escape

This was exactly the game Cutler/Martz needed to have and they were aided by an improving offensive line (although we’ll learn how improved next Sunday).  Cutler was efficient and smart with the football, making a couple spectacular throw when he had a chance to set his feet and hurl it.  Those few extra seconds the...

Audibles From the Long Snapper

To read about my predicted 27-16 victory for the Chicago Bears, click here. Pompei on the Williams MoveDan Pompei does a nice job in the Trib evaluating the Bears decision to move Chris Williams inside to the guard spot, leaving Frank Omiyale as the starting left tackle (and leaving the young right side alone). So... Read more »

Reasons To Curb Enthusiasm...a little

I can live with this collection of skill players.  The safety position has been remarkably solid.  The corners, especially Peanut Tillman, have played well.  The linebackers are brilliant.  Julius Peppers is just about the best defensive player in the game right now.  So why aren’t the people covering and cheering on the Chicago Bears going...
