The Chicago Bears Are (Finally) Starting To Get Pissed

Many pro boxers, martial artists, hockey players and other physical sports professions often say they can’t settle into a game or match until they’ve felt their first couple blows to the head.  It settles the nerves and helps them focus.  Maybe that is what is finally happening for the Chicago Bears.  After taking two ridiculously hard uppercuts from the Patriots and Packers...

Matt Forte: Bears coaches told us we played ‘worst half’

For the first thirty minutes, you wondered if the Bears even got off the bus. During Sunday’s home matchup against the rudderless Buccaneers, Chicago went into halftime with a 10-0 deficit and having been severely outgained in total yards, 211-68. Predictably, the team received an earful about their effort — or lack thereof — in the locker room, as told by running back Matt...

Yesterday’s Tampa Bay/Chicago match up had an interesting story line as head coach Lovie Smith and quarterback Josh McCown went up against their former team.

McCown threw two interceptions...

He’s a fast and mobile quarterback and we saw that last year. We studied the offensive line that we were...

Chicago Bears knock off former coach Lovie Smith and the Bucs in a tale of two halves

Day of love; can Bears make it two in a row?

Heading into a reunion Sunday with former head coach Lovie Smith, the Chicago Bears are more worried about their own play rather than renewing old acquaintances.
