Why new kickoff rule limits excitement for Bears fans

You know what NFL rule is nonsensical? The new kickoff rule.  Kickoffs are the one play when everyone in the stands is on their feet.  Fans want to see kick return specialist knife through defenders, run over tacklers, and break free to the end zone.  Remember how exciting it was when Devin Hester ran 92 […]

If Bears OC Martz doesn’t change; he needs to leave

As Bear fans we have been told for two straight weeks the offense will run the football more.  Last week before the Green Bay game, Offensive Coordinator Mike Martz took blame for his play calling.  Head Coach Lovie Smith assured both fans and the media the run/pass differential would be balanced against Green Bay.  As […]

Bears SS Harris, RB Barber, OG Louis listed doubtful for Sunday

Time to see whether or not the Bears possess quality depth. On Friday, the team held out starting strong safety Chris Harris (hamstring) and right guard Lance Louis (ankle) from practice, along with backup running back Marion Barber (calf), who is expected to be inactive for the second consecutive Sunday. Here’s what Harris had to […]

Bears Stomped By Big Blue; 41-13 The Good: Jay Cutler was not trampled over by Giant defenders.  New York’s pass rush was contained by the “usual five suspects.”  Sorry, Gabe Carimi.  Screen passes were executed to perfection.  Back-to-back Hester and Forte big gains via the air.  Johnny Knox continued to show promise on kick returns.  Also, Knox came back into […]

Bears, Barber Batter And Bruise Bills; 10-3 The Good: Amobi Okoye looked sharp with two sacks. During the first series, Henry Melton had a tackle for loss on C.J. Spiller. Melton, now at 292 pounds, continues to show encouraging signs of becoming a standout interior lineman. Marion Barber is still in his prime. Barber rushed seven times for 45 yards and […]

Is Braylon Needed In Chicago?

Jay Operating Exclusively Out Of Shotgun? Bring in another “big ugly”, not a “diva.” If we get Braylon, does this hinder the progress of Earl Bennett? Cutler’s former Vanderbilt teammate, is a solid slot receiver, who only dropped one pass last season – seventh-best in the NFL. Will we possess too many receivers if Edwards […]

Bears Against New Kickoff Proposal; Natural Grass Staying At Soldier Field

Only Way NFL’s All-Time Leading Touchdown Returner Can Be Contained: NFL Rule Change. Imagine if the rule did not get passed, Bears replaced Soldier Field natural grass with field turf.  Hester would have a field day each Sunday, he’d be “Lethal Weapon” Danny Glover times 100, or something like that. On a team based primarily […]

Despite rankings, Bears offense putting up impressive stats

After scoring 40 and 38 points in back to back weeks, the Bears offense has made a quick ascension up the league’s offensive rankings, right? Not so fast, my friend. The Bears now boast the league’s 30th most prolific offense with 293 total yards per game. While that number won’t strike fear into the hearts […]
