Chicago’s Just Peachy vs Falcons

The Chicago Bears traveled to the Georgia Dome on Sunday and won a game they absolutely had to in order to keep themselves viable for a playoff spot. The NFC North seems to be settling in as a three team race with Chicago, Green Bay, and Detroit all jockeying for first place. As it stands after six weeks Chicago is a […]

4th and Left Out!

4th and Left Out!

It was a cold day by the lake. Aaron Rodgers returned after seven weeks off from a shoulder separation to do his patented belt move with 38 seconds remaining to end the Bears’ season. I should end this report here and move on to thinking about the Hawks, who are used to succeeding in frigid conditions. But…. The Packers converted […]

Gritty Bears

The Bears game lasted nearly 5-1/2 hours but the fans who weathered tornado warnings, torrential rain, and then frigid temperatures were rewarded with a warm, sunny result as Chicago came out on top 23-20 to improve to 6-4 on the season.  In a game that was expected to be smash-mouth and points-at-a-premium, it turned out to be a throwback to 1950’s football […]

Backup Plan Goes Accordingly

Backup Plan Goes Accordingly

Aaron Rodgers had everything going for him against Chicago last night.  Backup quarterback?  Check.  Damaged defense?  Check.  Opponent who had no expectation of winning?  Check.  Accordingly, the Packers were a heavy favorite and – other than the legacy borne of matchups going back to 1921 – there was nothing that warranted watching the game.   There was nothing to stop Chicago from realizing its annual loss on […]

No Offseason Hibernation for Bears and NFL Central

With the hiring of Marc Trestman from the offense-centric Montreal Allouettes, it’s time for the Bears to focus on the upcoming March 12th free agency period. The Bears have a seemingly solid defense, but with the uncertainty of Brian Urlacher’s return for his 14th season the new regime at Hallas Hall may have to consider turning the defense over.  This would be a daunting task while simultaneously […]
