As a fan, whether or not it is ever appropriate to boo the home team is a debate that has been raging since the beginning of sports. This past Sunday, Chicago Bears fans showed that they have no problem letting their team know exactly how they feel about the team losing five of its last six games. Boo birds were out in full force all day Sunday during the teams 21-13 loss to the rival Green Bay Packers. Some Bears players have taken offense to the boos, but if they watched the game from the perspective of a fan they might find themselves booing alongside the rest of the crowd.
When a playoff team gets the ball first and goal from the five yard line they come away with seven points. This is exactly what the Bears were unable to do on Sunday. They ran Matt Forte up the middle three times which got them four yards, and then threw a pass to Alshon Jeffery, which resulted in one of the rookies three offensive pass intereference penalties on the day. The drive resulted in a field go...

The Arizona Cardinals defense allow 335.8 ypg which ranks 11th in the league. They allow 21.6 ppg as well.
They’ve done a solid job at stopping the pass allowing just 199.3 ypg through the air, which ranks fourth.
However they haven’t found a way to stop the run this season. They rank 28th allowing 136.5 yards per game on the ground.
The Chicago Bears need to capitalize on the...

Arizona Cardinals, reports Michael C. Wright of ESPN Chicago.

This is a banner week for Packers fans being dicks to their NFC North rivals. While this Packers fan’s alteration of a Jay Cutler jersey isn’t quite as great as the Packers fan photobomb of a Vikings couple at Lambeau, it does involve making fun of Jay Cutler and that’s worth something.
Anyway, some dude took a Jay Cutler jersey and made it into a Pick-Six jersey. It’s funny...
The daughter of a former Chicago Bears player from the 1950s is accused of illegally collecting money from an NFL pension plan years after her father's death.
Constance Helwig-Langlois was charged Wednesday with fraud in Detroit. She's the daughter of John Helwig, who played defense for the Bears.
Federal prosecutors say the NFL retirement plan kept sending checks to John...
TEMPE, Ariz. -- We were scraping the bottom of the barrel for Cardinals story ideas today. What is there to say that hasnt already been said? What depressing note can we illuminate that hasnt already been illuminated in this 30-car pile-up of a season? What strength can we muster for yet another grim game preview?
Following a 4-0 start, the Cards have lost nine of their last 10...

I detailed the Giants/Bears battle for the 6th seed in the Giants’ write up. The Bears should take care of their business and beat the Cardinals and Detroit. They’ve beaten everyone they’re supposed to, going 7-0 SU as favorites of 3.5 or more this year. That would put...
After starting the season 7-1, the Chicago Bears have been in a free fall, winning just one game in their last six.
The offense has continued to sputter while, not as dominate as it was earlier in the season, the defense continues to put the team in a position to win. With just two games left, the Bears will likely need to win out and have some help along the way if they want to...
The Chicago Bears' prolonged slump has left them likely needing victories in back-to-back road games and some help to reach the playoffs.
The Bears will seek the first of those wins Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, who are eager to build on the end to a lengthy skid.
It appeared Chicago would easily make it to the postseason after a 7-1 start, but losses in five of the...

Last week’s Packers Drive Rewind highlighted how a seven-play drive that featured all running plays buried the Lions. Watching it made you want to pound your chest and yell. Loudly.
This week, we’re going to stay with the tough-guy theme and highlight how the Packers defense stood tall with a goal-line stand after Ryan Grant fumbled.
Third quarter. Packers 21...
