If you're a Bears' fan, take a look outside and you might see the devil in a Bubble coat with a skull cap on shaking in the snow.  Coming into Sunday, the Chicago Bears needed to win out the season just to have a chance to get in the playoffs. They accomplished the first part by dominating the Arizona Cardinals, 28-13. They had a few scenarios that could help them get into the playoffs. One scenario was Seattle Seahawks losing their last two games of the season...they embarrassed San Francisco 49ers 42-13.  So the other was having Minnesota Vikings lose at least one of their last two and the New York Giants losing one as well.The Giants continued to get walloped losing 33-14 to the Baltimore Ravens. So that leaves us with the Vikings who went to Houston and shocked the NFL by beating the Houston Texans 23-6. This sets up one of the most sickening feelings for the Chicago Bears and anybody who is affiliated with them. The Bears need to depend on the one and only Green Bay Pac...

Bears lead the league in Hall of Fame players, who’s next?

Iconic names like George Halas, Bronko Nagurski, Dick Butkus, Mike Singletary, Walter Payton, and Mike Ditka stir echoes throughout the hallowed hall. With a league leading 27 legendary Monsters of the Midway permanently hibernating in Canton, the NFL Hall of Fame could conceivably be nick-named the Bear Cave. The most recent player to join the clan of caved Chicago Bears was Richard...

Bears WR Devin Hester's Time in Chicago is Up

Perhaps no player personifies the Lovie Smith era in Chicago more than Bears wide receiver and kick returner Devin Hester.  Hester has been brilliant at times, the best return man in the NFL.  Hester may go down as the best of all-time, but as a wide receiver he's been an abject failure.   Hester's days as a player in Chicago are numbered, regardless of what his contract...

Bears in Desperate Need of Safety Help

With the injury to safety Chris Conte on Sunday, the Bears are in need of help at the safety position.  Safety Craig Steltz was already placed on the injured reserved list, ending his season leaving the Bears with only second year safety Anthony Walters and Major Wright to play the back end of the defense.   Now the question becomes where are the Bears going to find that safety...

Bears sign S Nolan

The Chicago Bears signed safety Troy Nolan on Wednesday to add depth in a depleted area. Nolan has five tackles in seven games this season for Houston and Miami. He started one game for the Texans after returning to Houston from the Dolphins earlier in the season. Bears starting safety Chris Conte is battling a hamstring injury and his availability is uncertain for Sunday'...

Bears Injury Report: Matt Forte Exits with Ankle Injury

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte exited yesterday’s victory over the Arizona Cardinals after reinjuring his right ankle, reports Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. “It is not the worst that I have ever felt but it is the third time,” said Forte while he stood in the locker room wearing a walking boot on the ankle. “So, it’s just getting a little aggravating.”...

Bengals claim Sanzenbacher, put Kirkpatrick on IR

Wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher is heading home. The Maumee, Ohio, native and Ohio State alumnus was claimed off waivers by the Cincinnati Bengals on Tuesday. Sanzenbacher was waived by the Chicago Bears a day earlier. The Bengals cleared a roster spot for Sanzenbacher by placing rookie cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick on injured reserve because of a knee injury. In four games with...

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger?

Challenge….accepted. Chicago Bears future Hall of Fame Inside Linebacker Brian Urlacher  re-iterated something the other day which has piqued my interest for a couple of months now. Half of his sentiment drew staunch criticism from all sources but the other half, at least to some extent, rings true. Last weekend, the previously 7-1 Bears slipped to 8-6, having lost 5 of the last...
