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 only get two (the race preview and the post-results analysis) stories on her per week.
Now you get a third.
From an interview Danica did with NASCAR:
The NFL opens its season this week. How big of a Chicago Bears fan are you?
“I go to games every year. I’m a big Bears fan, for sure. I always watch their games. I even get nervous for their games. That means I’m a fan, right? I’m sure I’m not the biggest fan, but I’m a big fan, for sure,” Danica said.
And with that, perhaps Danica is the most attractive Bears fan in the world? Who else you got?

I’ve been pretty hard on Danica Patrick this NASCAR season in regards to her results on the race track. I even called Danica Patrick the Tim Tebow of racing at one point. Perhaps that was a bit much. I was being hyperbolic. Because Tim Tebow is actually, truly terrible at what he does, while Patrick is is not.
It’s just that Danica is an amplifier; just like Tebow. Both athletes...
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...

The Chicago Bears have signed tight end Kyle Adams and waived offensive tackle Jonathan Scott.
According to the official website of the Chicago Bears, the team released former Pittsburgh Steelers tackle Jonathan Scott late Tuesday evening.
Now, before any of you get too excited about Scott possibly returning to Pittsburgh for a second tour of duty, you should know that he has recently had issues with one of his knee and just recently returned to practice. According to Brad...
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.
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 Patrick will make her second trip to Richmond in the Sprint Cup Series for Saturday night’s Sprint Cup race. In her first go-round in April, she started 30th and finished 29th. Not impressive. Yes, I know that.
However, if you look at the IndyCar record of Danica Patrick at Richmond, she had four top ten finishes in five races there. Will that help? Make a difference?
Bears coach Marc Trestman says it’s possible both Jon Bostic and D.J. Williams will get reps at middle linebacker with the first team in Sunday’s regular season opener against the Bengals.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall says there are not structural issues with his hip heading into the regular season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals.
13-year veteran Roberto Garza is the only current Chicago Bears’ offensive lineman who was on the active roster to start the 2012 season.
The 34-year old center was joined on the 53-man roster by guard James Brown and tackle Jonathan Scott after the season opening win against the Indianapolis Colts.

(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.
After years as an assistant in the league and on the college level before heading to the CFL, Trestman finally has his opportunity...
