Chicago Bulls at their best when Derrick Rose attacks the basket

After a rough 5-3 start to the season, people were ready to give up on Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls as a team. ESPN writer Brian Windhorst, who seems to gladly criticize anyone in the NBA not named LeBron James, went as far as to say "the break up between Rose and the Bulls has begun." Not so fast. The start to this young season has not gone as smooth as expected but Chicago is far from finished. Ther ...

NBA Offseason: Three Chicago Bulls players to watch for the 2015-2016 season

Watching Jimmy Butler transform from a defensive ace to a two way star last year was remarkable to say the least. Many believed he had great potential, but nobody expected him to erupt into an offensive machine the way he did. Throughout the season there were many other bright spots on the team as well. The Bulls have several players on their roster that are overflowing with potential that could very well m ...

A Trip Down Misery Memory Lane for the Monsters of the Midway Part II

Last week I ranked the five most embarrassing, soul-crushing losses from 1986-2000. This week I have ranked the four worst losses from 2000 until now. 4) January 15, 2006. NFC Divisional Round game. Chicago Bears vs. Carolina Panthers. It was supposed to be the moment where the Bears broke their curse of losing in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Since winning the Super Bowl in 1985, Chicago fell in th ...

Chicago Bears: 0-3 and unbearable…

The last team to make the playoffs after starting 0-3 was the 1998 Buffalo Bills. The way the Chicago Bears have started the season, we can agree that the chances are small that this team will be given a playoff birth with Jimmy Clausen guiding the offense to zero points and 10 punts. If the Bears lose this Sunday to the Oakland Raiders, an 0-4 start leaves the Bears not only accepting a wash of a season bu ...

A trip down misery memory lane for the Monsters of the Midway

The Chicago Bears are now 0-3 after an embarrassing 26-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Chicago was shut out for the first time since 2002. The Bears have now lost eight regular season games in a row, dating back to last season. It is safe to say the franchise has truly hit rock bottom. It’s times like this when I like to focus on milestones, milestones of misery that is. Here is my list of the mos ...

Chicago Bears struggle with Jay Cutler sidelined

If there was a silver lining in yesterday's performance, it was the realization that Jay Cutler may finally be living up to his potential with Adam Gase calling the plays. That silver lining went away at the end of the first half however as Cutler was ruled out for the rest of the game with an apparent hamstring injury. His status for the coming week and future are still unknown as John Fox likely will addr ...

Patrick Kane puts Chicagoans in unfamiliar territory

Chicagoans are not used to this. This happens to other fan bases, not us. Whether it’s Kobe Bryant with the Lakers, Ben Roethlisberger with the Steelers, or Jameis Winston at Florida State, Chicagoans have always been the ones asking other fans, “how can you cheer for that guy?” We had Walter Payton, 'Sweetness' on and off the field. We had Michael Jordan, the greatest basketball player of all time who gamb ...

Bears show heart and fight in gritty loss to Packers

It could've been much worse. If anything there was anything the Chicago Bears proved on Sunday it was that this team, under a new regime lead by John Fox, is playing up to NFL standards. The past two seasons as a Bears fan has left many scorned and as training camp attendance showed, distant. I am not one for the optimism to be talked about after a difficult loss to take but for Bears fans to take this game ...

Fox, Pace keeping cards close; while alienating fanbase

When John Fox was introduced as Chicago Bears head coach, he called himself "brutally honest"; and so far his Bears tenure as coach has been anything but. Originally deemed a minor shin issue, Bears fans are on the verge of accepting that the top 10 draft pick Kevin White will likely be missing the whole season. Fox, being either overly cautious or overly optimistic, brought forth a sense of light to the Be ...
