More Audibles From the Long Snapper

Pompei Has Warped Priorities Dan Pompei wrote a few weeks ago that the Bears were not in need of a wide receiver and now he’s writing that their off-season priority is acquiring of a second defensive end or solid under tackle.  I liked Dan’s work very much in the regular season but what has he...

Training Camp: Right Around the Corner

Well with my World Cup postpartum soon to be relinquished by a trip to Red Bull Arena to see visiting Spurs on Thursday July 22nd, I can now move on to the American version of this game called football.  Move on to a little underachieving ballclub in the heart of the Midwest.  Move on to...

Use Your Delusion

Response to the Press Conference

It was the press conference that made a 7-9 season worse. Three individuals spoke today at Halas Hall.  Ted Phillips, the ringmaster of Chicago’s most popular circus, embarrassed himself with a stunning lack of football knowledge and blind fan pandering.  Jerry Angelo actually believed that “new energy” from new coaches would elevate a 7-9 disaster...

Phillips An Absolute Lost Cause

Ted Phillips has confirmed that the Chicago Bears will be bringing in two new coordinators.  Essentially saying: We couldn’t coach on offense. We couldn’t coach on defense. Our players disappointed. But our head coach and general manager deserve to keep their jobs. I don’t mind an organization making the decision to retain a head coach... Read more »

Audibles From the Long Snapper

Chris Williams Moved to Left TackleLovie Smith officially acknowledged today that the team has moved Chris Williams to left tackle.  Of course, in typical Chicago Bears fashion, they waited until Orlando Pace could be embarrassed and subsequently injured by the fierce Vikings defensive front.  Jay Cutler’s blindside immediately becomes the only thing worth watching against...
