Bears vs Falcons: 5 Keys to Clipping the Wings of the Falcons

It’s been 34 years since the Atlanta Falcons have won a game in Soldier Field, and while that guarantees nothing, these Chicago Bears might be better than you think. Although I’m not suggesting that they are playoff bound by any means, if Mike Glennon can keep the mistakes down, and the Bears run the ball... Read more »

Unveiling the Chicago Bears Initial 53-Man Roster

I call this the “initial” roster because as the other teams’ cuts are announced, I’m sure that the Bears will be adding and subtracting from this roster in order to take on players from other organizations as needs fit. Despite what Ryan Pace had to say about not requiring players from other teams, the Bears... Read more »

Bears QB Mike Glennon Just Needs to Manage the Game

All the Bears need Mike Glennon to do is to be a game-manager. Manage the game, by handing the ball off to Jordan Howard, and hitting short passes out of the backfield to the backs and slot receiver. If he can do that successfully, and get the tight end involved, the Bears defense should keep... Read more »

It's Time to See Bears QB Mitch Trubisky with the First Team

It’s been surprisingly fun watching the Bears first two preseason games, mainly due to the promise that rookie QB Mitchell Trubisky holds. Normally, even when the Bears are good, I couldn’t care less about exhibition football, but this year’s different. It’s not that I expect the Bears to be any good, it’s just that the... Read more »

Let the QB Controversy Begin: Mitch Trubisky Impresses in Bears Debut

“Mike’s the starter,” Trubisky said. “This is his team.” Ah yes, the fact that young Mitchell even felt the need to utter those words makes you realize just what is developing here, in a town that always loves the backup QB and has been known to experience a QB controversy or two over the years....

Ryan Pace Wants John Fox Out as Bears Head Coach

No, it’s not like Ryan Pace and John Fox are having a spat, or that there is such a disconnect between the men that continuing the relationship would be toxic to the team. No, nothing like that. However, if Pace, the guy who generally manages the Chicago Bears, has his wish, he would like to... Read more »

Jay Cutler is Taking His Talents to South Beach

So that didn’t last very long, did it? Nope, Jay Cutler’s career as a media analyst on Fox is on hold, with Cutler deciding he still wants to play, and his former coach in Chicago Adam Gase offering him 10 million reasons to do so. What’s surprising to me is that Cutler still wants to... Read more »

Jay Cutler Apparently Has More to Say Than We Thought, Signs with Fox

Former Bears QB Jay Cutler never did like the media during his playing days. I say that in the past tense, although no one knows for sure if Cutler’s playing days are done or not. Nevertheless, Cutler recently accepted a TV gig with Fox, so perhaps the once-bitten, twice shy gunslinger is changing his tune.... Read more »

Bears Fans Left Cold After Feeling This Draft

Chicago Bears GM Ryan Pace did the impossible. He made something that is already a gamble into much more of a risk by trading three draft picks to move up one spot in order to take Mitchell Trubisky with the second overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Oh but he didn’t stop there. Throughout... Read more »

Bears 1st Round Draft Analysis: Fox OutPaced, Pace Outfoxed

Disclaimer: I was not a fan of the pick or the trade. But more on that in a bit. The real story, to me, is that with the decision to move up to the second position in the draft and taking QB Mitchell Trubisky, Ryan Pace both flexed his muscles over head coach John Fox... Read more »
