The Great Rabbino:
Watching the Bears beat the Vikings was great, but the icing on the cake was seeing Adam Podlesh run in a 2 point conversion.
I got a text from my sister asking if that was the first ever 2 point conversion by a Jewish player. I thought to myself possibly, since the 2 point conversion has only been around in the NFL since 1994. I began searching, apparently there were several attempts but only one Jewish 2 point conversion..
10/21/07 - Texans vs. Titans - Sage Rosenfels to Andre Davis
But at least Podlesh is the 1st Jewish punter with a 2 point conversion.

Matt Forte was one of numerous Chicago Bears players to be injured on Sunday. The Bears picked up a relatively easy win over the Minnesota Vikings, but they saw six players injured. Forte's injury appears to be a sprained ankle, and it may keep him out Sunday.
Depending on the source, Forte could miss Sunday's game or he may be able to play. Early Tuesday, it...
The Chicago Bears have signed former Pro Bowl offensive lineman Andre Gurode, hoping to boost a short-handed unit.
The Bears announced the signing Tuesday, a day after right guard Lance Louis was placed on injured reserve. Louis suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in Sunday's win over Minnesota on a blindside hit by the Vikings' Jared Allen and will...
The Chicago Bears will be without starting right guard Lance Louis for the rest of the season because of a left knee injury. And for that, they are not happy with Minnesota's Jared Allen.
The Bears placed Louis on injured reserve Monday, a day after he was hurt in a win over Minnesota. That happened on a hit by Allen that clearly didn't sit well with Chicago coach Lovie...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen told reporters after Sunday's loss at Chicago that he never meant any harm to Bears guard Lance Louis on a vicious hit, but Louis is now out for the season as a result.
Following an interception by cornerback Antoine Winfield early in the third quarter of Chicago's 28-10 win, Allen found Louis closing in on...
Jay Cutler scrambled out of bounds for a first down against the Vikings then proceeded to flip the ball at the chest at cornerback A.J. Jefferson, earning Cutler a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. It’s the first ****** Cutler act in two weeks, only because he missed last week’s loss to the 49ers. To make up for lost time, expect him to rebuff a coach and make a dismissive...
Even though he has lost his starting job to Corey Wootton, Chicago Bears defensive end Israel Idonije says his approach, whether as a backup or starter, has stayed the same.
Matt Forte is the fifth Bears starter to go down today versus the Vikings, after injuring his ankle in the thrid quarter. Also hurt are Charles Tillman, Lance Louis, Chris Spencer, and Devin Hester.
Despite all of the offensive injuries, the Bears have managed 28 points through three quarters, and are currently leading the Vikings 28-10.
Michael Bush will carry the load if Forte...
It’s easy to dislike Jay Cutler.
He, the Chicago quarterback of perpetual grumpiness (although Smokin’ Jay Cutler was magical), completely great or completely terrible performances, and just enough talent and underachieving to make someone unhappy, has plenty of critics.
This year, he’s been at it again. He feuded with coaches on the sideline. He called out teammates (also...
The Chicago Bears have placed offensive lineman Lance Louis on injured reserve with a knee injury suffered yesterday against the Minnesota Vikings.
Chicago wideout Brandon Marshall eclipsed 1,000 yards receiving today, the first Bears receiver to do so since Marty Booker in 2002.
"It doesn't mean anything, it's just something."
Those were the actual words NFL Countdown's Tom Jackson used to describe his displeasure with Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler walking into Soldier Field Sunday morning without appearing to talk to someone within ESPN's camera shot. Jay Cutler has been criticized for a galaxy's worth of things...
Facing serious depth issues with the season-ending injury to guard Lance Louis, the Chicago Bears signed former Dallas Cowboys All-Pro Andre Gurode to a deal Tuesday. The 6-4, 318-pound Gurode has started 127 of 151 games played over 10 seasons with Dallas (2002-10) and Baltimore (2011) after being drafted by the Cowboys in the second round (37th overall) of the [...]
CHICAGO -- On the Bears' first two offensive plays against Minnesota on Sunday, quarterback Jay Cutler and running back Matt Forte botched a handoff for a lost fumble, and Cutler tripped over a teammate and sacked himself for a five-yard loss. But the Vikings couldn't do much with the opportunities, and Cutler then unleashed an effective short passing game, the even more...
