Week 12: Bears win slop-fest behind Howard, defense

Here are a few observations from the Bears' 26-6 win over the San Francisco 49ers, which improved them to 3-9 on the season. 1. Matt Barkley continues to make his case The thought seemed almost ridiculous to think about just a few weeks ago, but Barkley is actually playing reasonably well so far as the Bears’ starting quarterback. In his second NFL start, the former USC star picked up his first NFL win and ...

Looking ahead: how could Bears improve their offense early in the draft?

Well, for those of us who look at the glass half-full, this Sunday’s impending Battle of Badness between the Chicago Bears (2-9) and San Francisco 49ers (1-10) does have some meaning, even if it is a little sad to think about. Whoever wins Sunday’s game gets an inside track to the #2 pick in the upcoming draft (take from that what you will), which will add to the intrigue regarding which top prospect will g ...

Week 12: Bears drop the ball (literally) in loss to Titans

Welp, the Chicago Bears just got themselves closer to securing a top-3 draft pick this upcoming spring. So that’s exciting! Actually, this game did become engaging in the end, so my apathy toward writing was at least infiltrated by some emotion, even if that emotion was frustration. Anyway, let’s get into it. 1. This loss was not on Matt Barkley Can’t believe that I’m saying this, but I actually was impress ...

Week 11: Bears season can’t end fast enough after latest collapse

Yesterday’s loss to the New York Giants was about as perfect an encapsulation of this year’s Bears season as one could get. •A first half of promising football, featuring some of the best play-calling and execution we’ve seen all season, ultimately wasted by a second half of mind-numbing futility that saw the Giants score 13 unanswered points and steal the game. https://twitter.com/djdurkin/status/800507041 ...

Week 10: Bears embarrass themselves, effectively kill their season

I’m ditching the normal format this week, as I didn’t get the chance to watch much of yesterday’s game live. Then again, part of me wonders if it wasn’t better that I didn’t. Wow. That possible 2014-type loss that I had been fearing for the past few weeks? Looks like I just predicted it a few weeks too early. In fact, it's an unexpected parallel to the 2014 post-bye week collapse against the Packers, minus ...

Chicago Bulls still figuring out their identity early on

Now sitting at 5-4 after a 3-0 start that had some people thinking we may have underestimated them, the Chicago Bulls again can't seem to make up their minds as to who they are as a basketball team. Tonight’s 98-95 win against the Miami Heat, aside from being a homecoming of sorts for longtime Miami man Dwyane Wade, was a microcosm of what makes the Chicago Bulls a playoff team and what will assuredly get t ...

Week 8: Cutler comes back strong, defense smothers Vikings in win

Here are a few observations from the Bears' dominating 20-10 victory over the Minnesota Vikings, bringing their record to 2-6. 1. Jay Cutler is back, and the offense was better for it After completing his first pass to Zach Miller, Cutler started to look like a guy who hadn’t played in six weeks. He badly missed on a throw to Alshon Jeffery that could’ve been a pick-6, had a miscommunication with Jordan How ...
