FUNKY QB’S SILENT TREATMENT MAKES NOISE

  On Monday Night, in Dallas’ sterling football stadium against a less than polished Cowboys team, the Chicago Bears looked like a team capable of winning the all-silver Vince Lombardi Trophy. They did it by executing a game plan that called for pressuring Cowboys’ QB Tony Romo into turnovers and a balanced offensive game plan. The five interceptions Romo threw weren’t all the work of a dominating defe ...

Martz forgets balance, offense suffers

The Chicago Bears awoke this morning the number two seed in the NFC Playoffs, the same position they had woken up in on Sunday morning. We can debate for two weeks (or more depending on the outcome of playoff game one) about whether or not Lovie made the correct decision to play his starters the entirety of the game in week 17, but the fact remains, the Bears did nothing to hurt their playoff standing on Su ...

Chicago Bears Pre-Game: Week Seven, vs. Washington Redskins

Washington Redskins (3-3) at Chicago Bears (4-2) The Chicago Bears will be opposing an entire coaching staff that could've been their own, and very well may best Lovie Smith. Against former candidates for the Bears' coaching and coordinating positions, Chicago is zero for two. Perry Fewell's defensive assault versus Jay Cutler's half of play was undoubtedly domination for his Giants, as Fewell's blitzing ra ...

Success and sacks don’t go hand in hand

The Chicago Bears have allowed a league high 27 sacks this season and a lot of the talk this week has been about whether or not the offensive line can handle the scheme Mike Martz has brought to town. "That whole group is growing together and (offensive line coach Mike Tice) has done a remarkable job,'' Martz said of the offensive line. If that's true, can you imagine what this group would have been like wi ...

Welcome back 2006? Let’s hope so

Bears fans, do you remember the glory days? The Super Bowl days? The days when the defense was the Monster of the Midway? Do you remember? Do you remember the dialed down offense, the quarterback, entrusted only to manage the game, to now screw it up to try not to lose instead of trying to win? Remember when they just let the defense do their job, when they let the offense get on the field and quickly get o ...

Third and wrong; improvement important on key down

Thanks Sunday, hello Monday. The day is finally here, and once we all survive the grind of work we'll be ready to settle in for one of sports best rivalries: the Chicago Bears vs. the Green Bay Packers. You know all the story lines by now. Two 2-0 teams facing off. Jay Cutler and his rough 2009 season vs. Aaron Rodgers on his Pro Bowl 2009 season. One of the league favorites to play in this year's Super Bow ...

Is Martz coaching himself out of town?

Do you hear that sound? Well if it's coming from my direction it the sound of me eating my text from Sunday. I thought, like many that the Bears were headed for danger in Dallas. The Cowboys were hosting their home opener, they were coming off a tough loss, they had a supposed high powered offense, they were bigger, they were madder, and they were supposed to be better. Not the case, though it has been hard ...

Bears’ Affairs: Areas Bears’ Nation Needs to Watch Out for Tonight

Oakland Raiders vs. Chicago Bears: 8|21|10 Following an abysmal outing in their first pre-season game, the Chicago Bears are looking for a jump start of momentum heading into the final stretch of meaningless match-ups. First off, the main focus of Chicago's improvement is undoubtedly the offensive line. A move that needs to be made is an insertion of Josh Beekman. Beekman, a Boston College product, has sign ...

Majority Vote: Who Will Be The Most Successful Rookie Safety in 2010?

In today's annual gridiron meets, passing is the most important aspect when it comes to victory. Evolution is taking place quickly, as the hard-nosed approach of smashmouth football has vanished. The AFC Champion Colts, for example, rely heavily on the air while the ground is just another change of pace. With the aforementioned paragraph, it's assumed the safety position is destined to become vital on the t ...
