Chicago Bears : Matt Forte following Peanut Tillman’s footsteps for MOY Award

One thing that can’t be denied is that the Chicago Bears have had some players with great character around the locker room the last few seasons. And Matt Forte is one Bear that might add some more ‘humanitarian’ hardware to his shelf. In the 2013-14 season, Charles Tillman won the Walter Payton May of the Year award, bringing the Chicago hero award back to a Chicago player...

Chicago Bears: It was fun while it lasted

Truth be told, I don’t really know what to think about this Chicago Bears season. With arguably less talent than last year’s 50-win quad, many experts and fans (including myself) expected this team to once again be in the league’s cellar. Quite frankly, I had fully come to terms with the fact that the Bears would have a top pick in the draft before any games had even been played...

Chicago Bears: 3 Predictions, 2 Analysts, 1 Bet — Round 3

Round three of the weekly predictions between Guest analyst Ken Vitiritti and myself will be taking place again this Sunday as the Chicago Bears play host to the west-coast San Fransisco 49ers.

A better year for Chicago, Jay Cutler

All things considered, this is probably the best we’ve seen Jay Cutler play, now in his tenth NFL season. Cutler, 32, has been the butt of many jokes over the years—comparable to Tony Romo in that regard, just without similar numbers. As for the Bears themselves, winners of just five games last season—a mark they’ve already achieved this year—they underwent plenty of...

Do the Chicago Bears need to consider a Forte-less future?

Matt Forte has easily been the most productive and best running back I have seen in a Chicago Bears uniform since Walter Payton. He’s willing to, and can, block. He can catch passes out of the backfield and also can line-up at receiver for the deep threat. He runs hard. His work-ethic is unmatched. He has quality vision, able to find the hole, and he’s very rarely an off...
