Audibles From the Long Snapper

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...

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...

Bears/Pack: I Can't Think About Anything Else

I wonder how important this game will be in determining the off-season plan for Jerry Angelo and Bears management.  We know there will be tremendous focus on building the offensive line but if Aaron Rodgers shreds the Bears defense, I wonder how much attention will go their way.  If the defense stops Rodgers cold, you...

Audibles From the Long Snapper

‘Vanilla’ Approach a Definitive Advantage Neil Hayes writes a very interesting column in the Sun-Times today, claiming the Bears gained a significant advantage by almost pulling a Week Seventeen upset over the Packers while instituting a vanilla scheme.   His players gave every ounce of effort on the field. Smith even risked injuries to quarterback... Read more »

Thoughts on a Meaningless, Injury-less Game

I spent the majority of yesterday afternoon laughingly rooting for Rex Grossman on the second television, half-afraid of looking at the Bears v. Packers game and seeing Peppers or Urlacher or Cutler being carted off the field with the sadness towel draped over their head as they headed into the tunnel.  As the game progressed... Read more »

When Things Seem Dark, Stars Must Emerge

2006 is quickly becoming the Diet 1985 of the Chicago Bears organization.  It is the year writers and fans now point to as that by which all championship-caliber teams must be measured.  Nobody, at least nobody with a working brain, believes the 2006 team could have stayed within double-digits of the Monsters.  (Could you imagine...

Open Debate: Which Receiver To Cut

Been a while since we did one of these open debates and they usually yield an interesting result.  I stumbled on the Tribune site tonight and they are asking fans: WHICH WIDE RECEIVER WOULD YOU CUT? 1. Earl Bennett 2. Rashied Davis 3. Juaquin Iglesias My vote: Iglesias.  As much as I’ve ragged on Davis... Read more »

Camp Thoughts From an Outsider

I’m basing the following impressions on smatterings of video, coach interviews, Tweets galore, first-hand accounts from friends and articles from everybody who has set foot in Bourbonnais. The Bears seem completely settled at the tackle positions, with Frank Omiyale set to start on the right side.  This immediately becomes the spot to watch for the... Read more »

Filling The Slot

Devin AromashoduI’ve been rooting for Aroma to make this club because he played for my all-time favorite college football team: the 2004 undefeated Auburn Tigers.  (That team also featured Cadillac Williams, Ronnie Brown, Jason Campbell, Kenny Irons and Carlos Rogers…and was not allowed to play for a national title.)  Aroma has become a near-lock to...

Rashied on the Bubble?

David Haugh basically summarizes a month worth of columns in today’s Trib.  And for the first time this summer, someone asks the question: 3 who missed opportunities… Rashied Davis, WR: He hasn’t stood out as much as Devin Aromashodu, Brandon Rideau or Bennett. How many wide receivers can the Bears keep? I thought, coming off... Read more »
