Found September 10, 2013 on Sports by Colin:
Likely due to juicing, the NFL on Tuesday suspended free agent safety Tom Zbikowski for four weeks. Taken out of Notre Dame by the Baltimore Ravens 86th overall in 2008, the 28-year-old Zbikowski was clipped by the Chicago Bears on August 25. Now employed by three organizations, the two-time member of the AP All-American third-team has only amassed 126 tackles, two sacks and three interceptions over 64 games. Hence, it has become readily evident the 5-foot-11, 200 pound Zbikowski is nothing more than a middling ballplayer. However, the badass Irishman is an extremely promising prizefighter. Since debuting as a professional … Continue reading →

Week 1: NFC North game reaction

Week 1 in the NFC North is in the books and there were quite a few things that could be taken away from these games. Some actions looked smart, others looked quite foolish, and there was no shortage of points up on the scoreboard throughout this division. Judging by the games on Sunday, this division could shape up to be one of the most competitive divisions in the league. Here are...

Chicago Bears special teamer Blake Costanzo gives thanks to 9/11 everyday (PHOTO)

Blake Costanzo was a stand out special teamer for the Buffalo Bills several years before going to the Bears. Well Costanzo will never let the 9/11 tragedy rest, because he is a very proud American. @BradBiggs: Blake Costanzo’s 64 El Camino has flag mounted in back permanently. Not just a 9/11 tribute. Yes that is […]

QB Jay Cutler says the offensive line did a 'good job' in win over Bengals

In 2012, Cutler was bumping former Bears OL J'Marcus Webb and it was an image that Bears fans had to endure for the entire year. A year later, Cutler is praising his line and giving them the encouragement that Webb a year before didn't have the privilege to experience.

Bears’ Kyle Long Lets The Bengals Know That Jay Cutler Is Not To Be Messed With

During Sunday’s Bears win over the Bengals at Soldier Field, rookie offensive linemanKyle Long took issue with Bengals’ defensive player Vontaze Burfict seemingly trying to hit Jay after he already has went to the ground sliding. Without hesitation Kyle Long hopped in the Burfict’s face and let him know that Jay is off limits for that sort of shenanigans. If that wasn’t...

Chicago Bears: 2013 Week 2 NFL Power Rankings (#10)

The way AJ Green shredded a secondary that was supposed to be the strength of this team is concerning, but AJ Green is a top-3 receiver in this league so maybe they get a pass. The good news is their offense looked very good against a very strong Cincinnati defense. Jay Cutler wasn’t sacked once by a dominant Cincinnati defensive line as their retooled offensive line help up. The...

Vikings at Bears: Four Bold Predictions For Sunday's Game

There were some great plays by cornerback Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings on defense and the offense managed to keep QB Jay Cutler off his back. But how does a team like the Chicago Bears come out with a new offense and a struggling defense hold RB Adrian Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings at bay?The Bears and the Vikings have had a long standing rivalry. But the signature moment...

Final Thoughts: Plenty Of Positives For Bears In Season Opening Win

The Chicago Bears did plenty of good things in Sunday's season opening win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Of course the storyline of the game was the fact that the Bears overcame an 11 point third quarter deficit by scoring 14 unanswered points to win the game. However, some impressive plays were made by the Bears on both sides of the ball. The new-look Bears offensive line...

Bear Breakdown: Having A Legitimate Tight End Like Martellus Bennett Is A Big Deal

The Chicago Bears have certainly found themselves a legitimate No. 1 tight end in Martellus Bennett. The seventh-year veteran reeled in three catches for 49 yards and a touchdown reception in Sunday's season opening 24-21 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. The eight-yard touchdown grab was a ridiculous circus catch in the back of endzone to put the Bears ahead 7-0 early in...

Bears worried more about pass rush than Peterson

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By GENE CHAMBERLAIN Associated Press The Chicago Bears find themselves worrying about improving their pass rush at a time when there could be a somewhat more pressing issue facing them: Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. A week after they recorded only one sack and one hit on Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton, the Bears' defensive linemen...

Chicago Bears rally to beat Cincinnati Bengals, 24-21

The game began like so many recent ones for the Chicago Bears (1-0). The offense got the ball, punted, and then scored on a short field after a defensive turnover. The offense then proceeded to do nothing for the rest of the first half and went into the locker room down 14-10 after a four-yard […]The post Chicago Bears rally to beat Cincinnati Bengals, 24-21 by Jon Vander Woude...

Bears 24, Bengals 21

Well, the game didn't really pan out how I expected it to (though the margin of victory was identical). Bears Run Versus Bengals Run Defense I said that this was a defense that could be run on, but I was wrong. Forte carried the ball 19 times for just 50 yards; as a team, the Bears were 28 for 81 (18 of which came on a nifty Cutler scoot on a 2nd and 20). Forte wasn't getting...
