Open Debate: Second Round Draft Pick

There will not be much variety when it comes to my analysis of the 2011 Chicago Bears draft.  I am more than on record as saying I believe the team should use each and every pick on an offensive lineman and hope they strike gold a few times.  They have no other pressing position on... Read more »

Open Debate: First Round Draft Pick

Open Debate: First Round Draft Pick
Because there is no free agency period and because the NFLPA and NFL owners are currently entangled in the stupidest labor dispute in American history, there is nothing to write about.  Instead I’ve been spending all my time developing TheOtherSports.com (come check it out) and focusing my attention on non-NFL activites. Today’s open debate is an... 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).

Audibles From the Long Snapper
It’s the slowest time of the NFL season, unless you get excited about franchise tags and press releases from the mediators of collective bargaining sessions.  In Bearsland, it’s no different.   My Thoughts on the Release of Tommie Harris I saw the announcement and I did not care and that, that more than anything, tells...

Audibles From the Long Snapper

Mannelly Gets Contract Extension The man who gave birth to the name of this column has signed a two-year extension to stay with the Bears and we here at DaBearsBlog would like to congratulate him.  I don’t think the story itself is all that interesting but the possible subtext might be.  Brad Biggs wonders whether Danieal...

Audibles From the Long Snapper

Brandon Marshall: Out in Denver?BM is in great shape and preparing for this weekend’s Pro Bowl to be the last game he plays in a Denver Broncos’ helmet.  Marshall will be trade bait come early March and should fetch a sum that includes a number one draft pick.  While we’d all love to see the...

About Last Night...

Quick thoughts because the hotel has a computer time limit and there’s a greasy kid behind me itching to update his Facebook status. Never been prouder to be a Bears fan than last night.  In what was essentially a meaningless game, played in frigid cold, the place was packed and loud.  People cared in that... Read more »
