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 ...

Brian Hoyer wants to return to Bears, is open to mentor role

Since the Chicago Bears’ season ended yesterday, one of their impending free agent quarterbacks has not been shy about politicking to stay in the Windy City. As reported by Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, veteran Brian Hoyer spoke up about his desire to stay with the team, saying: “I would love to stay here. I have comfortability with Dowell (Loggains) and his offense. Got an opportunity to play in the g ...

Alshon Jeffery guarantees Bears will win Super Bowl next year

In case you were wondering whether or not Alshon Jeffery wanted to remain with the Chicago Bears, a comment he made after today’s season-ending 38-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings might answer your questions. Here’s what the veteran Bears receiver said, as reported by WGN’s Adam Hoge: Wow. That’s bold. However, while that scenario is highly unlikely, it ...

Week 17: Worst season in modern Bears history mercifully ends

And with that, the Chicago Bears 2016-2017 season is over, as the team completed its worst 16-game campaign in franchise history (3-13) with a 38-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. The fact that we had to watch the Bears play all 16 games was unfortunate, but, like 2016, that’s now all in the past. Here’s what I saw: 1. Bears finish the season with a truly losing effort To be fair, there were actually some p ...

Jordan Howard: From draft steal to starter to star

In a post just before the draft last year, I tabbed two running backs that I hoped the Bears would pursue aside from Ezekiel Elliott, who obviously was drafted #4 overall and would’ve required a steep price to obtain. One was former Notre Dame standout C.J. Prosise (some bias there...), who was drafted in the third round by the Seattle Seahawks and briefly re-ignited an offense badly missing one of my favor ...

In the meantime, let's vent about what went wrong in the latest embarrassment suffered by Chicago's football team, as they lost to 41-21 to Washington and fell to 3-12 on the season. 1. Bears look ready to go home After the Bears’ loss to the Green Bay Packers last week, some fans took solace in the fact that the team at least put together an inspired effort to han ...

Week 15: Bears swept by Packers in gut-wrenching fashion

How can Chicago Bears' losses still sting this much? Well, losing to the Green Bay Packers generally doesn't help things...not only is the all-time rivalry now tied 94-94-6, but the Bears fell despite putting together an admirable effort in the midst of their 3-11 season. If only effort was enough to win games. Anyway, here's what I saw: 1. Matt Barkley: QB #1 of the future? Much like his first start of the ...
