The new-look Chicago Bears kicked off the 2013 season against the up and coming Cincinnati Bengals Sunday September 8th. As expected the Soldier Field faithful flocked to the recently renovated spaceship by the lake to excitedly usher in the Mark Trestman era. The rookie NFL head coach and his revamped defense seemingly had their hands full attempting to contain All-Pro wide out AJ Green, who hauled in nine Andy Dalton passes for an astonishing 162 yards and two touchdowns.However, despite Green's impressive performance Chicago's Pro Bowl cornerbacks Charles "Peanut" Tillman and Tim Jennings combined for three game-saving turnovers which ultimately helped the Bears salvage a thrilling 24-21 opening day win. For the first time in 13 years the refurbished Monsters of the Midway's defense went to war without their recently retired general, middle linebacker Brian Urlacher. Devoid of No. 54 calling the defensive signals this season the Bears promoted fellow Pro Bo...
BEST OF MAXIM
Tweet Brian Urlacher, the retired All-Pro Chicago Bears linebacker, has been in the sports headlines for his quotes a lot lately. This time, Urlacher is sounding a lot bit bitter that current Bears quarterback is the only former teammate that hasn’t called Urlacher since he’s been retired. Urlacher recently sat down with Graham Bensinger and vented about […]
Blake Costanzo was a stand out special teamer for the Buffalo Bills several years before going to the Bears. Well Costanzo will never let the 9/11 tragedy rest, because he is a very proud American. @BradBiggs: Blake Costanzo’s 64 El Camino has flag mounted in back permanently. Not just a 9/11 tribute. Yes that is […]
Charles Tillman will be a key asset in the mission to stop Vikings’ running back Adrian Peterson
The Minnesota Vikings have arguably the best running back in the National Football League in MVP Adrian Peterson. Last year, he amassed 2,097 yards, eight short of Eric Dickerson’s record of 2,015. Keep in mind, Peterson had ACL surgery the previous offseason, so this was a superhuman...
The Chicago Bears are focusing more on their pass rush than stopping Adrian Peterson as they head into Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings. “I think as a D-lineman, we definitely want to stop the
The Bears were able to protect Jay Cutler last week, let's see if they can keep it up.
After going 13-3 week 1, I've started out 1-0 with the Patriot sneaking past the Jets.
We'll continue to learn more about the league after this weeks game.
Here we go:

He is arguably the best player in Chicago Bears history, for all intents and purposes.
The pro bowls. The defensive player of the year awards. The lumbering interception returns playing on a bad hamstring and a bad ankle, the jaw-dropping speed showcased from sideline to sideline when an opposing foe was foolish enough to try an outside run to either side of the field.
The way AJ Green shredded a secondary that was supposed to be the strength of this team is concerning, but AJ Green is a top-3 receiver in this league so maybe they get a pass. The good news is their offense looked very good against a very strong Cincinnati defense. Jay Cutler wasn’t sacked once by a dominant Cincinnati defensive line as their retooled offensive line help up. The...
Andy Dalton fit a sideline throw between two defenders, dropping it just over the one in front for a completion. He made a pump-fake and hit A.J. Green for a 45-yard touchdown.
Virtually everything he did was right on the mark in the Cincinnati Bengals' season opener, an impressive showing that got overlooked in how it ended.
The third-year quarterback completed a career-best...
There were some great plays by cornerback Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings on defense and the offense managed to keep QB Jay Cutler off his back. But how does a team like the Chicago Bears come out with a new offense and a struggling defense hold RB Adrian Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings at bay?The Bears and the Vikings have had a long standing rivalry. But the signature moment...
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green is certainly one of the tops in the league currently and it will be up to Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor to make sure that he does not have a performance anywhere close to one he had in the Week 16 game last year.
Taylor of course missed that game with a fractured ankle and Green proceeded to catch 10 passes for 116 yards as...
Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was fined $31,000 by the NFL on Friday for two unnecessary roughness violations.
Burfict had hit defenseless Packers receiver James Jones in the head and neck area, which cost him $21,000, and then struck Green Bay tight end Ryan Taylor, costing him $10,000.
Bengals teammate George Iloka was fined $15,000 for unnecessary roughness when...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By GENE CHAMBERLAIN Associated Press The Chicago Bears find themselves worrying about improving their pass rush at a time when there could be a somewhat more pressing issue facing them: Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson.
A week after they recorded only one sack and one hit on Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton, the Bears' defensive linemen...
Week two is upon us and after the performance we saw on Sunday, one has to be worried about this game, which will be in prime time, on Monday night.
About the only good that came out of Sunday was that the rest of the division lost their games, so the Steelers are still tied for the division lead. Aside from that, a lot of the concerns I wrote about last week were proved to be genuine...
Fresh off an impressive comeback victory over the Cincinnati Bengals (0-1), the Chicago (1-0) Bears now play host to the division rival Minnesota Vikings (0-1) in Week 2. The Vikings suffered a bad road loss to Detroit last week and will be looking to avoid falling to an 0-2 hole with both losses coming from […]The post Undefeated Chicago Bears to hold Minnesota Vikings winless...
