Jason Avant Won't Apologize for Calling Out Fans

Jason Avant's personality has fit his game over the last few seasons- quite, but there when you need him whether it be for a quote or a 3rd down conversion. But this season, Avant has been a little bit more of a wild card. It was Avant that called the team meeting before the Washington Redskins game, and he has become one of the vocal leaders of the team through the media. His...

Avant says he didn't mean to insult Philly fans, but won't apologize

Jason Avant, a receiver not known for making inflammatory comments, became the subject of wrath among some in Philadelphia after making comments critical of "bandwagon fans" in an interview after the Eagles beat the Cowboys Sunday.

Forte not helping his cause going public with contract dispute

Forte is having a record season, but the Bears aren't going to invest while his stock is so high. With each passing week Matt Forte earns more respect from me on the field and less respect off it. The disgruntled Bears running back is on pace to break team records and could finish with more yards from scrimmage in a single season than anyone in league history with a little more...

Tale of the tape: Matt Forte vs. LeSean McCoy

Bears running back Matt Forte is fifth in the NFL in rushing yards per game (96.0, 672 total) and first among running backs in yards from scrimmage (1,091). He’s on a pace for 1,536 rushing yards — which would be the most by a Bear since Walter Payton in 1985 (1,551) — and a franchise-record 2,494 yards from scrimmage. He’s been called the MVP of...

Why Jason Avant Is Wrong

You might know that Eagles wideout and serial fumbler Jason Avant got a little bit of heat this week when he pooh-poohed any Eagles fan jumping off the team's bandwagon in the wake of their 1-4 start. Avant clarified his remarks yesterday without apologizing, saying he loves "faithful Eagles fans" and intimating that everyone else could go pound sand. Now here'...

Video: Forte won't quit on Bears over contract

Matt Forte says he is worth more than the $15 million guaranteed contract the Bears offered him, and that he will not leave the team between now and the end of the season. (NBC Sports)

Forte rips Bears over lack of new deal

Running back Matt Forte accused the Chicago Bears of happily grinding him "into a pulp" while refusing to hand him a new and improved contract.

Forte says he won’t walk out on the Bears

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte has been candid regarding his desire for a new contract and his displeasure with the Bears’ failure to give him one. Though he didn’t hold out, some have wondered whether he may walk out in the hopes of forcing the team to address the situation. In a Friday appearance…

Chicago Bears Weekend Six Pack: MNF2

Six thoughts going into a third non-football Sunday in a row for me. 1.  What are your thoughts on the suddenly-challenging matchup at Philadelphia?  Following the Eagles’ four losses that dropped them to 1-4, this looked like a game to laugh at.  Now after two impressive wins, the Bears’ week nine opponents look like they could be the “dream team” that was expected....

5 Keys to Beating the Bears on Monday Night

The Eagles will be back in the national spotlight again this week as they host the Bears on Monday Night Football. They played well under the bright lights last week and will look to pull their record back up to the .500 mark. The Bears are coming off a bye week so they’re well rested. However, Lovie Smith doesn’t have the same kind of post bye week track record as Andy Reid...

2011 Week 9 Picks

This week, the Eagles will face the Bears on Monday Night Football. Two prime time games in a row! YAY, but also some of us have DAY JOBS y’all! I have to admit, in the McNabb era, I tended to worry about night games. If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time, you know I have always been a huge Big5 fan. But DMac was often not as his best in the prime time games...

HE’S THE REAL McCOY

Bears running back Matt Forte is fifth in the NFL in rushing yards per game (96.0, 672 total) and first among running backs in yards from scrimmage (1,091). He’s on a pace for 1,536 rushing yards — which would be the most by a Bear since Walter Payton in 1985 (1,551) — and a franchise-record 2...
