Thanksgiving Game Thread & Picks Contest

I’ll be away from a computer for 48 hours so special for Thanksgiving Day, we’re giving you guys a chance to get back into the season-long contest.  A perfect score on the three Thanksgiving games will be the equivalent of (2) perfect scores.  As the JMCyclone attempts to run away with this thing, the day could...

Don't Forget the 3 in 3-1

I know how Bears fans work and I’ve never liked it.  An unarguably poor performance in the Meadowlands and suddenly half the roster needs to be traded and coaches need to be fired.  3-1 after four games isn’t not enough for Bears fans anymore.  The 3 never happened.  All they remember today is the 1....

The Saints Paradigm

Three years ago the Chicago Bears dominated the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship game 39-14.  (That season feels like it happened in 1942.)  Soon after both teams packed up their belongings and settled on Middle of the Road.  The Bears went 7-9 and 9-7 in 2007 and 2008.  The Saints went 7-9 and...
