ESPN NFL Predictions: Mike Ditka says Chicago Bears go all the way

The NFL season is just minutes away from beginning and ESPN’s 35 NFL pundits predicted the eight divisional winners, AFC and NFC wild cards, Super Bowl matchup, Super Bowl XLVIII champion and NFL MVP for 2013. Mike Ditka predicted the Chicago Bears to go all the way. (I’m sure, cough, cough, there’s NO BIAS at work there. None whatsoever). Of the 35 pundits, Mike Ditka was...

Brian Urlacher says the Bears designated a player to fake injuries to slow opponents down

Brian Urlacher’s departure was unceremonious to say the least. Long story short, Urlacher wanted to play another year, but the Bears didn’t really want him any longer.

So instead of testing free agency and possibly signing with another team, Urlacher retired and took a job as a NFL analyst for Fox Sports...

Shame On You Brian Urlacher!

I totally understand why ESPN and now FOX Sports 1 want to have athletes on as studio analysts. People still remember these players from their playing days and will want to tune in to see their favorite former superstars talk about the game since they can't see them play it anymore. They need to stop it. Too many of these guys just aren't any good at it. @BUrlacher54...

Brian Urlacher: Johnny Manziel ‘acted like a punk’ in first game

Former Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher is on board with the growing list of people who feel that Texas A&M star Johnny Manziel needs to learn to keep a lower profile. On Saturday, Manziel provided the Aggies with a major spark against Rice after serving his one-half suspension. He came in and immediately electrified the […]

Danica affirms her Chicago Bears partisanship

Maybe you think the Danica Patrick coverage on this site is excessive. To that I say, she is our “home team” NASCAR racer. Danica hails from Northern Illinois, and this site is based in Chicago. She is an Illinois woman. And this website puts Illinois first. Besides unless Danica really does something newsworthy. Or something really newsworthy happens with Danica, you usually...

(Eds: Updates with player quotes.) By ANDREW SELIGMAN AP Sports Writer Marc Trestman wasn't about to wax poetic. He makes his debut as an NFL coach when the Chicago Bears host the Cincinnati Bengals, and to say he's come a long way is no exaggeration.
