The Driver’s Seat in the NFC North Belongs to the Bears

Due to the heroics of Justin Tucker’s six field goals in an 18-16 Baltimore Ravens’ victory over the Detroit Lions, the Chicago Bears now have sole-possession of first place in the NFC North. They also control their own destiny in division title race. The Packers also control their own destiny because they play the Bears week 17.

NFL Week 4: Monday Grades for the Bears

It was bound to happen at some point in the season. The Chicago Bears were bound to lose a game this season but many people didn't expect it to be this bad when it happened. Or this bad to a team like the Detroit Lions. Give the Lions credit though. They aren't a pushover in the NFC this season and have the potential to be a a good team. This game was bad all-around for the Bears who look to rebound with a ...

Why The Bears Need Charles Tillman On Sunday

  Tillman is listed as "questionable" on the injury list for Sunday's game in Detroit.   It's no secret that Bears cornerback Charles Tillman is one of the tougher players in the National Football League.

Israel Idonije Finds A New Home

  Idonije played for the Chicago Bears from 2004-2012.   We all knew that Israel Idonije's days as a Bear were numbered, we just didn't want to believe it. Even after all of the offseason issues with the salary cap and the losses of key defensive players from last year, there was still hope that No. 71 would return. Eventually reality would set in. First, the Bears did offer Idonije a new contract ...

Monday Night Nightmares

The first time the Chicago Bears appeared on Monday Night Football was against the Detroit Lions at old Tiger Stadium in 1970. It was the third game in the history of what would become a sports television phenomenon – football on a weeknight during primetime.  For me, a young Chicago sports fan, I was thrilled to see the Bears in a nationally televised prime-time game. The previous season, my second as a fa ...

Predicting the Bears season from here (a craptastic journey)

I've never been good at making predictions. Sometimes I will get a gut feeling about an upcoming game, but I am never able to make picks with any consistency.

After further review, Lovie still irritating

Now that I've had a day to chew on, regurgitate, spew and watch the dog lick up that Bears-Lions game from Sunday, I thought I would share with you my thoughts on the final play of the day. I feel like Frank Costanza at the head of the table on Festivus. Frank Costanza has got problems with you! Wins are tough to come by in the NFL, we all know that. There are going to be games like this, ones you win that ...

NFL Sunday Week 1 Observations

The first Sunday of the NFL regular season is in the books, and what an eventful opening week it was. There is plenty to talk about, from games all across the league. It seems appropriate to start with the Bears-Lions game, and while there is plenty of other great coverage of that game on the site, I would like to add my two cents. Obviously there was at least one other controversial play in the game, Javhi ...
