REMINDER! DABEARSBLOG IS MOVING! We are leaving ChicagoNow effective November 1st. We will be housed exclusively at www.dabearsblog.com from that date (and perhaps sooner) on.  I disagree entirely with the Reverend’s Rant this week. I believe if Marc Trestman can evolve the Chicago Bears into a perennially top five offensive unit, Bears fans should accept... Read more »

DaBearsBlog Interview: Devin Hester [AUDIO]

DaBearsBlog Interview: Devin Hester [AUDIO]
After some technical difficulties I was able to connect and chat with Bears star return man Devin Hester.
