Ways to Make the Draft More Fun

Let’s face it. The broadcast of the NFL Draft is simultaneously fun and boring; unless you love listening to Mel Kiper read a teleprompter. I usually find myself watching or doing something else as each pick is announced. I will say though, having the Bears picking in the top ten will make things a bit more interesting. I know fans out there will be having draft parties, or inviting...

The Chicago Bears Must Move Back In The 2015 NFL Draft

Commonly accepted amongst the many philosophies involving the NFL draft is that a team needs a high choice in order to get good players.  So it’s little wonder the Chicago Bears fans are so hopeful.  Their team owns the 7th overall pick in 2015, marking the first time they have held a top 10 selection since 2005. That is good news right? Not necessarily.  Holding the 7th pick...

Cory’s Corner: Mike McCarthy’s play-calling days are over

After getting some time to digest the Great Cheese Melt, I am left scratching my head at the strangest game I ever saw. The Seahawks outscored the Packers 28-6 in the second half as Green Bay’s Super Bowl dreams went up in smoke by an overtime score of 28-22 in the NFC Championship Game. And the reason it was so odd was because the offense, defense, special teams and coaching all...

The Lack of High Draft Picks Equals Decades of Bears Mediocrity

The Bears missed the playoffs for the fourth season in a row. They went 8-8 in 2011, 10-6 in 2012, 8-8 in 2013 and 5-11 in 2014. These playoff-free/middle of the road seasons have done almost nothing for the Bears future in the draft. The Bears aren’t even good at being terrible. They have been stuck in mediocrity for the last few decades, they’re rarely great, but they’re...

Cory’s Corner: Packers were smart to pass on Steven Jackson

Remember when Packers fans were demanding that Ted Thompson go out and sign free agent running back Steven Jackson? Well, that was way back in the spring of 2013. At the time, it didn’t look like a terrible proposition. Jackson, who was 29 at the time, had just finished getting his eighth straight 1,000-yard season. And the Packers just got done handing it off to Cedric Benson...

It’s Not All Bad: Chicago Bears NFL Draft Position Improving

True, it may come off as sarcastic, but if the Chicago Bears want to be good again, they may have to be bad first.  Sitting at 3-5 going into the bye week and suffering a humiliating 51-23 pounding in New England, there isn’t a shred of evidence to indicate this team has any hope of turning things around in 2014.  It’s a shame too because on paper it seemed like they had talent...

Game Predictions: Packers at Saints

C.D. Angeli (@TundraVision): The prevailing wisdom seems to predicts some sort of wild and wolly shootout in the Superdome. Many are predicting a big Packer offensive score to outmatch Drew Brees and Co. While I predict a Packer victory, I have a hard time believing that the Packers can put together two massive offensive outputs two weeks in a row. Laws of averages, if nothing else...

The Packers are as Deep as They Have Ever Been at Running Back

What a difference a year makes.  At the end of the 2012 season, there were a lot of questions surrounding the Packers’ backfield. James Starks, who was a key part of the Packers’ 2010 Super Bowl run, was only able to start 2 games due to injuries, and always seemed to be battling some sort of nagging injury. 2011 3rd round pick Alex Green sustained a knee injury his rookie year...
