The Penalty Flag:
Just turning 26 this May I came to the realization that I have yet to see my beloved Chicago Bears win a Super Bowl. Watching video clips from the legendary 1985 Super Bowl on YouTube, up pops a video featuring the team doing the famous “Superbowl Shuffle.” William “The Refrigerator” Perry and “Sweet” Walter Payton [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
Here's a spoiler alert... I have one member of the Chicago Bears secondary on my 2012 Most Important Bears list. Originally it was Charles Tillman, but then I bumped him off because I think we all know the Bears will get a solid corner out of him. Tillman made his first Pro Bowl last year, and he is capable of making game changing plays. Then I had Tim Jennings on my list,...
Yesterday on CBSSports.com, Senior NFL Blogger Will Brinson revealed his 10 hottest coaching seats in the NFL. And to no ones surprise Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith made the list. When the Bears hired general manager Phil Emery, he was hired with the understanding that he would retain Lovie as his coach for 2012. After that it's his call.
With a new offensive coordinator...
With the exception of RB Matt Forte, it's not often you see an offensive player from the Bears show up on a top-10 list. At least, not for good reasons.
Typically, Bears QB Jay Cutler shows up around the middle of the pack when rankings and lists show up in the offseason, but ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski has him ranked in the top-10.
The other day I got into a debate with my friends about who is the best player in the NFL.
I thought the answer was simple: of course it’s Jay Cutler.
My friends and I all agreed Cutler was the best, but I still decided not to talk to them for two days because they even questioned the man’s dominance.
When I heard about the NFL putting together a “Top 100 Players” list,...
Bears fans are hoping for double digit sacks from Shea McClellin this season to help off set some of the focus on Julius Peppers. McClellin was drafted to be a pass rushing specialist on third downs, essentially substituting for Israel Idonije.
The hope is McClellin will have a major impact as a rookie to help the Bears make a run to the Super Bowl.
The reality of McClellin...
The Chicago Bears have gone out of their way to anoint Devin Hester the starting Z receiver for the 2012 season, putting a damper on the expectations around rookie Alshon Jeffery.
Jeffery has fans excited because he's tall, can jump well and showed great hands in college. Jeffery also showed many of these qualities in the rookie minicamp and OTAs he participated in while...
2012 NFL Season Preview for the Chicago Bears.
The past few years the Seattle Seahawks and Chicago Bears have had some big games, in the regular season as well as in the playoffs. These two teams will square off again in the 2012 NFL season in Chicago in Week 13 and it should be a great game. This match up could be a [...]
Since 2006, the Chicago Bears have featured six different starting quarterbacks. Coming close to matching that record are the Denver Broncos with five starters lining up under center. Meanwhile, the Houston Texans have had just four over the past six seasons leading up to their first-ever playoff victory in franchise history.
The Broncos, Bears and Texans are three tough teams...
