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 »

On the Lowering of Expectations for the 2012 Season

On the Lowering of Expectations for the 2012 Season
Note: Make sure you stop by tomorrow morning. There will be significant picks contest bonus potential for the Thanksgiving games. I have been receiving multiple Tweets and emails all basically alluding to the same idea: the 2012 season for the Chicago Bears is not “over” but expectations for that season have been lowered immensely. My... Read more »

Chicago Bears at San Francisco 49ers Game Thread

Chicago Bears at San Francisco 49ers Game Thread
Three final thoughts: If Mike Tice throws it more than he runs it tonight we may be entering “he’s not fit to be an offensive coordinator” territory. You don’t have to average 6 yards a clip but if the Bears veer away from the ground game at any point they will end up exposing their... Read more »

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).

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 »

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)...

Complete the Picture in Detroit

Now is not the time for the Chicago Bears to rest upon the laurels of an 8-3 start to the 2010 season.  Brad Biggs knows it.  David Haugh knows it.  It took the Bears only three plus hours on Sunday afternoon to convince a majority of the national football pundits that they are a legitimate...

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).

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...
