Thoughts on Dave Duerson and more...

My entire experience with Dave Duerson is on DVD these days; a set of DVDs chronicling the 1985 Chicago Bears season the Reverend’s parents had made.  I can only say that when hard times hit members of the ’85 team, we all hurt a little deeper and the outpouring of emotion from his teammates is...

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)...

Zorn: The Right Coordinator

The Bears are not looking for an offensive coach to institute a head coach’s scheme.  They’re looking for a coach to install an offensive identity.  Jensen – the new Brad Biggs at the Sun-Times – posits Jim Zorn as the right man for the job: ”Any quarterback who’s willing to work would be a great...
