Pre-Draft Audibles From the Long Snapper

Here’s my draft week plan.  I’ll have threads up for each of the draft rounds and then I’ll go and find all the information I can on each of the players selected by the Chicago Bears.  (Saturday might be a bit trickier as I’ll be on the golf course.)  I’m hoping they are all offensive...

Coaching Continuity a Must This Offseason

Editor’s Note: If this were a non-fiction book, the full title would be Coaching Continuity a Must This Offseason, or The Stupidity of Steve Rosenbloom. I wake up this morning and check out the Tribune sports website and see that Steve Rosenbloom has decided Mike Martz needs to be fired as offensive coordinator of the... Read more »

A Wonderful Season, A Bizarre Ending

If someone told you in August that Jay Cutler, Todd Collins and Caleb Hanie would each take snaps in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers…what would you have said?  I don’t know what my exact words would have been but they would have rhymed with “buck cough”.  We’ll have weeks to discuss...

More Audibles From the Long Snapper

Lots of posts this week, kids, due to lots of traffic/interest in the site.  I keep it coming with a second dose of Audibles… Urlacher Wants Lovie Extended Vaughn McClure reports that Brian Urlacher is now publicly lobbying for a contract extension for his head coach, Lovie Smith, and hopefully his opinion means nothing to...

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 »

New Jersey Jets at Bears Game Preview

With the second seed in their sights, the Bears host the freaky foot fetishist New York Jets at Soldier Field.  In 2010 the Bears have been a far superior team on the road, often looking lost in front of the adoring home fans.  Sunday that must change in a prelude to playoff atmosphere. YOUR NFC... Read more »

Bears Make Roster Moves If you’re one of those guys who is interested in the makeup of the practice squad, then this Sean Jensen piece is the article for you.  I wouldn’t read too much into the signing of guard Herman Johnson to the active roster unless you believe Mike Tice is actively (and wisely)...

History Available For Cutler, Bears

When the Bears acquired Jay Cutler last off-season, it was one of the most exhilarating acquisitions in the history of the organization.  It filled the 2009 balloon with hyped-up air that we all watched deflate in a storm of turnovers, injuries and defensive meltdowns.  Still I defended Cutler, arguing that he is a special talent...

The Bears Have Life

Quick turnaround for us and the site this week.  Here are my thoughts on yesterday’s ultra-fulfilling contest. Two mistakes cost this from being a masterpiece.  Chris Harris can’t blow deep coverage on the Percy Harvin touchdown grab.  He has only one assignment on the play and Harvin was the only viable receiver on the Vikings...

My Kind of Game, This Sunday is...

I’ve been trying each week to give some kind of moniker to that Sunday’s game.  I believed then and still believe the Redskins game was a must-win if the Bears wanted to keep from chasing the standings the remainder of the 2010 season.  I believed the Bills game could have easily spelled the end of...
