The Chicago Bears Are NFC North Champions

Jay Cutler

At least it isn’t the Minnesota Vikings. The Chicago Bears nailed down the NFC North title Monday night by destroying the aforementioned poor excuse for an NFL franchise, 40-14. The Bears are 10-4 and can finish no worse than 10-6. If the Green Bay Packers finish with the same record by winning their last two […]

The Chicago Bears Might, Kinda Be For Real

No one has really taken the Chicago Bears seriously this year, particularly in these parts. In fact, they only beat the Green Bay Packers because the Packers handed them the game on a silver platter with a team-record 18 penalties, terrible special teams play, and poor coaching decisions by Mike McCarthy. Still, a win is […]

Remember When The Packers/Bears Rivalry Was Cool?

Jim McMahon

This is a different NFL than the NFL of the 1960s or even the 1980s, for that matter. In those days, the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears generally disliked each other. Today, members of the two teams in the NFL’s most storied rivalry like to slobber all over each other. Case in point: the […]

Ah, The Chicago Bears

What a bunch of cunts. Despite their 2-0 start, the Bears… wait for it…

Mouth Breathers Unite! But Don’t Pass Out

It’s Chicago Bears week and before I get to trashing the Bears I will say this: the Bears look pretty good this year, particularly on offense. The Green Bay Packers will be tested on Monday night in Chicago. Now that that’s out of the way, let me get to the point. The Chicago Bears and […]

Glenn Beck Thinks Brian Urlacher Is A Neo-Nazi

Glenn Beck is an idiot, this we know. However, I had to laugh when Beck called Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher a neo-nazi. Here’s the setup. Beck was one of 33 people named to TheRoot.com list, The Blackest White Folks We Know. It makes little sense to include a rambling conservative talk show host, but […]

Watch The Packers Take Some Good Old Fashioned Cheap Shots On The Bears

Man, the Green Bay Packers under coach Forrest Gregg were terrible, but if there’s one thing you could count on, it’s that they’d lay some cheap shots on the Chicago Bears. The Bears were good, especially in 1985 and 1986, and the Packers really had no business being on the same field with them at […]

T.O. To Chicago?

That has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Really, I could care less what the Chicago Bears do. They’re still going to be the third or fourth best team in the NFC North if they sign Jesus Christ himself, but… Word is, free agent receiver Terrell Owens was in Chicago this week for some […]

Da Bears Super Fans Movie That Wasn’t

Those of us who are of a certain age fondly remember Saturday Night Live’s Super Fans, the sausage-eating, beer-drinking Chicago Bears’ fans played at one time or another by George Wendt, Joe Mantegna, Robert Smigel, Chris Farley, Mike Myers and John Goodman, whose answer to just about everything was, Da Bears! or Ditka. Yes, they […]

Bears Still Third Best In Division

Julius Peppers

I’ll be honest, I like to laugh at the Chicago Bears, whether they’re mortgaging their future to acquire Jay Cutler, pretending they have serviceable wide receivers or completely bungling their search for an offensive coordinator. Under general manager Jerry Angelo, the Bears are funny. And yes, I mean funny like a clown. So, the Bears […]

Bears Can’t Give Away Defensive Coordinator Job

Rod Marinelli

Much like their open offensive coordinator position, which they finally filled with their seventh choice, the Chicago Bears couldn’t find a defensive coordinator. So, on Friday they decided to give up and make assistant head coach/defensive line coach Rod Marinelli their defensive coordinator. Wait a minute, you say? I know this Marinelli guy! You sure […]

Chicago Bears Settle For Mike Martz

Mike Martz

The spin machine is working overtime in Chicago where the Bears have hired former St. Louis Rams coach Mike Martz as their offensive coordinator. The disaster that is the Chicago Bears organization tells it like this: Martz was the Bears first choice all along and the only one offered the job. In reality, the Bears […]

Resentment on the Packers’ Coaching Staff?

Tom Clements

The Green Bay Packers may have some resentment to deal with on their coaching staff in the coming months. Back in early January the Packers denied the Chicago Bears permission to speak to quarterbacks coach Tom Clements about their open offensive coordinator position. At the time, I just laughed, but the Packers move may have […]

No One Wants to Coach in Chicago

Lovie Smith

Well, maybe not no one – Chicago Bears’ coach Lovie Smith probably still wants to coach there, but he hasn’t exactly been given a recipe that’s likely to result in success. After firing half of his staff, simply because the Bears’ organization was too cheap to do what they really wanted to do and fire […]

Ditka!

Can’t say I was really a fan of Mike Ditka when he was coach of the Chicago Bears. After all, this was the guy who tried to run up the score and used William “The Refrigerator” Perry against our beloved Green Bay Packers. But Ditka was nothing if not entertaining, whether berating Jim Harbaugh for […]

Cleaning House In Chicago

Well, the Chicago Bears were too cheap to fire coach Lovie Smith after all, but they did do plenty of house cleaning on Tuesday. First, let’s address Smith. He’s under contract for two more years at a total of $11 million. Despite going 23-25 in the past three seasons, including 7-9 this season, the Bears […]

Lowly Bears Apologize To Fans In Full-Page Ad

My days are numbered....

Ah, how the mighty have fallen. Picked by some in the preseason to win the Super Bowl, the Chicago Bears instead struggled to a 7-9 record and failed to make the playoffs for the third season in a row. In response, the team took out a full-page ad in two of Chicago’s papers Monday apologizing […]

Did Cutler Flip Off Chicago Fans?

Eff yall! Wheres Shanny when I need him?

One of the more entertaining stories coming out of the Chicago Bears’ delightful OT victory over the slumping Minnesota Vikings involves Bears quarterback/mouth breather extraordinaire Jay Cutler. Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio asks whether Cutler flipped off Chicago fans after they booed the Bears’ decision to take a knee with nine seconds left in regulation […]

Shanahan Wants to Coach the Bears

Hey Jay, remember when you were good?

Former Denver Broncos’ coach and Chicago native Mike Shanahan is “extremely interested” in coaching the Chicago Bears, according to ESPN. Shanahan would be reunited with Bears’ quarterback Jay Cutler, who had two strong seasons under Shanahan in Denver, if he did take over in the Windy City. “The job is really attractive to Mike,” a […]

Lovie May Be Done In Chicago, But He Isn’t the Real Problem

Smith and Angelo in better times. Oh, wait... wrong Lovey.

We’ve alluded to the distinct possibility that Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith may be finished in the Windy City, but the strongest evidence to support this possibility emerged after the Bears’ pathetic 31-7 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, on Sunday. In some circles, it was thought that Smith was safe because the organization was unlikely […]
