Now that the window for franchise-tagging players has opened, the major issue of the Chicago Bears’ offseason—aside from what to do with the #3 overall pick in the draft—is officially on the table. Will the Bears re-sign unrestricted free agent WR Alshon Jeffery? And if they decide to do so, how will they do it?

Bulls opt for status quo, likely to retain Forman and Paxson

I’m just going to come right out and say it: the Chicago Bulls clearly don’t want to win another championship any time soon. How do I know that? Because for some reason, in the midst of a second consecutive season of struggling to even stay in the Eastern Conference playoff picture, they’ve decided that the status quo continues to be just fine. Per Bulls writer K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, sources f ...

Dwyane Wade proves he’s still got it, saves Bulls vs. Kings

Dwyane Wade turned 35 years old earlier this season and isn’t as dynamic as he once was, but he can still deliver in clutch time when he’s needed. After the Chicago Bulls watched a 27-point lead evaporate against the Sacramento Kings in the 4th quarter of last night’s game, Wade went into hero mode without Jimmy Butler in the lineup, scoring 31 points on 12/18 from the field and putting the Bulls up for goo ...

Chicago Bulls: Rondo fires back at Butler and Wade over comments

The Chicago Bulls saga just keeps getting more ridiculous with each passing day. A day after Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler called out their younger teammates following their 119-114 loss to the Atlanta Hawks, much-maligned point guard Rajon Rondo hit back on social media. Via his Instagram, Rondo had this to say about yesterday's lecture from Butler and Wade: https://twitter.com/ChiSportUpdates/status/824757 ...

Chicago Bulls: amid disappointing season, organization at crossroads

With the Chicago Bulls struggling to a 22-23 record at the midpoint of the season (8th in the Eastern Conference), the front office is approaching an interesting decision regarding both its immediate and distant future. Do they press on with the current roster and hope that the season turns around? Do they try to pull off a blockbuster trade to push themselves into legitimate championship contender territor ...

Steve Smith, Sr.: Put Devin Hester in the Hall before me

With Devin Hester’s career all but over after he announced that last Saturday’s game loss with the Seattle Seahawks against the Atlanta Falcons would be his last, it’s time to start looking forward to his potential Hall of Fame candidacy in five years. And while there’s always been debate surrounding his chances for induction, given that he was primarily a special-teamer that didn’t play every snap, at leas ...

Bears fans shouldn’t judge Watson, Allen based on one game

Amazing how much four or so hours can seemingly change your draft stock if you’re Clemson’s Deshaun Watson or Alabama’s Jonathan Allen, at least in relation to Chicago Bears fans. Being on Twitter last night throughout the course of the College Football National Championship, I was thoroughly intrigued by the roller-coaster ride many Bears supporters were going through in regards to these two prospects—one ...

BREAKING: Butler goes off for 52; Bulls beat Hornets

Jimmy Butler is a top-10 player in the NBA, and he keeps showing everyone what he’s got even without much of a supporting cast around him at times. With Dwyane Wade inactive due to a knee injury and the Bulls trailing for much of the game, Butler simply put the team on his back, going off for 52 points, 12 rebounds, and 6 assists to help the Bulls knock off the Charlotte Hornets 118-111. It’s been a while s ...
