We head back down to Michigan Avenue and kick it with Chicago’s number one street performer, the Tin Man. We also let Cheeto our dancing cat do his thing and ask some people about Lovie Smith getting fired by the Bears. Here’s another edition of Minute on Michigan. We are open to suggestions for what you’d like to see us ask people on the streets. Holla to rob@baconsports.com if you’ve got any good ideas. Also, don’t forget to check us out on Facebook to see some of the other random stuff that we create. Special thanks to Kenneth Stringer III aka The Chicago Tin Man for being in the video. The post Kicking it with Chicago’s tin man on Michigan Avenue appeared first on Bacon Sports.

The long overdue firing of Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith following the team's fifth missed postseason in the last six years has sparked some intense reactions from both players and fans alike. It's no secret that the mild-mannered Smith earned a reputation as a "player's coach" and gained the respect and support from his locker room over his nine year...

Chicago Bears to Interview Canadian Football League’s Marc Trestman for Head Coaching Vacancy

The Chicago Bears are apparently taking an out-of-the-box approach to the post-Lovie Smith era.

Over that period Montreal has...

Colts give Bears permission to interview Arians

Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians has been given permission to interview with the Chicago Bears for their head coaching job. The Colts said they granted permission Thursday.

Kelly coaching his last Irish game?

This is Notre Dame's dream team. Irish fans have been told for years they couldn't get back to the big game their way, yet here they are in Monday's BCS Championship Game against Alabama. It's all thanks to Brian Kelly. But I've come to one conclusion: Brian Kelly should be the coach of the Chicago Bears. Some people are built for college and some for pros...

As minority coaches win big, focus stays on the field, rather than off of it

While it’s easy to forget now, it was just seven years ago that the biggest story in the lead-up to Super Bowl XL was the race of the head coaches Lovie Smith and Jim Caldwell. The pair were the first African-American coaches to ever go head-to-head with the Vince Lombardi Trophy on the line, and it was all anyone seemed to talk about in the days prior to kick-off. Thankfully...

Bears Should Put All of Their “Chips” in for Oregon’s Kelly

Strong defense was the calling card of the Bears in the Lovie Smith era. As the old saying goes, defense wins championships, yet defense can only take a team so far. Teams in the modern NFL need an offense that can score at will in order to be successful. The number one and two seeds in the AFC playoffs (Denver and New England) are fourth and first in total offense respectively....
