First Meaningless Game Thread: Trestman Debuts!
Players I’ll be watching: the starters. I want to see them leave the field as quickly as possible.

Audibles From the Long Snapper: NFL Edition

So before we get to the Weekend of the Wild Card, I figured I’d weigh in on the happenings around the league over this past week. Leslie Frazier is a solid choice for the Minnesota Vikings but I wonder if they interviewed any non-minority candidates. The Raiders went undefeated in their division and finally looked...

Bears at Panthers Game Thread

Bears at Panthers Game Preview

It’s hard to predict what the Chicago Bears offense will look like with 116 year-old Todd Collins at the quarterback position.  The Vegas odds are probably on “ugly”.  But sometimes a team needs to win a game ugly to remind themselves they can.  I think Sunday is one of those days when the 2010 Bears...

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...

Audibles From the Long Snapper

Will Jay Cutler Play Sunday? David Haugh urges the Bears to rest Jay Cutler until he’s fully recovered from a concussion.  This is one of those articles I think sportswriters write to feel good about themselves.  Of course the Bears are not going to put their franchise on the field if he’s not fully recovered...

Don't Forget the 3 in 3-1

I know how Bears fans work and I’ve never liked it.  An unarguably poor performance in the Meadowlands and suddenly half the roster needs to be traded and coaches need to be fired.  3-1 after four games isn’t not enough for Bears fans anymore.  The 3 never happened.  All they remember today is the 1....
