Chicago - Oct. 18, 2013: Remember the days when the Chicago Bears were one ongoing controversy (Tank Johnson, Cedric Benson)? Thankfully the Washington Redskins and their team name are currently in the driver’s seat on that subject. I posted the photo to the right because I loved those Redskin throwback uniforms from 2003.

Chicago - Sep. 22, 2013: Another up and down game goes the Chicago Bears way. Thinking about it, I can’t remember the last time there was a kick return for a touchdown, an interception for a touchdown, and a fumble return for a touchdown all in the same game. Jay Cutler tried to piss the game away (two interceptions and a fumble) as did Matt Forte (4th quarter fumble), but in the end, Cutler and Martellus Bennett capped off a brilliant game winning drive.

Chicago - Sep. 15, 2013: The win last week was very satisfying. The reason why: the Chicago Bears finally have coaches who can make halftime adjustments. Over the past couple of years, the Bears were absolutely putrid when trailing at halftime. Aside from one drive in the first half, the offense was generating nothing. FULL STORY
Edmonton - Sep. 11, 2013: With his eighth French Open and second US Open crowns added to the books, Rafa Nadal now sits with 13 career Grand Slam titles, just one shy of Pete Sampras and only four back of Roger Federer. For so many years, Federer was looked upon as being the greatest player of all-time but after the year Rafa has just put together, that is simply no longer the case FULL STORY
Stoney Point - Sep. 8, 2013: The Chicago Bears are off to a 1-0 start after a 24-21 victory at Soldier Field against the Cincinnati Bengals. I found it odd watching the Bears game today without former Head Coach Lovie Smith and future Hall of Famer Brian Urlacher. I was disappointed that the team let Lovie go at the end of last season and still believe that Phil Emery made a mistake not giving Urlacher his money and a chance to have a “farewell” season.

Chicago - Aug. 30, 2013: Watched the final 2013 Chicago Bears preseason game at a GREAT friend’s house tonight. On the short drive back to my pad, I heard a couple callers lauding how great Jordan Palmer looked. “What has Josh McCown done better than Palmer did tonight,” one caller said. Carrying on the tradition of Bears fans pining for the third-string quarterback that won’t make the roster based on his performance in the final BS preseason game. FULL STORY
Chicago - Aug. 26, 2013: With the preseason all but wrapped up, excluding a meaningless game against Cleveland on Thursday, it’s finally time to look ahead to week one against the Bengals. The Chicago Bears, like any team, have holes going into this season, and those holes were on display at times during this preseason. What are Chicago’s keys to a great season? FULL STORY
Chicago - Aug. 23, 2013: In 1990, Mike Ditka‘s Chicago Bears made a throwback change to their uniform. “Back in the day,” before shoe company endorsements became a multi-million dollar industry, football shoes were black. When Dave Wannstedt took over, one of the first announcements to come from his new regime in February 1993 was that the Bears would again wear white shoes. FULL STORY
Chicago - Aug. 19, 2013: I saw a lot of positives in Thursday night’s preseason game against San Diego, which the Chicago Bears won 33-28. I also saw a lot of negatives. So to me, it seemed as if there was a negative for every positive. It is preseason, but we’ll have to hope things will get cleaned up with just two more rehearsals to go before real games start.

Montreal - Aug. 1, 2013: The Montreal Alouettes announced on Thursday the release of Head Coach Dan Hawkins. Owner Bob Wetenhall has asked General Manager Jim Popp to assume the head-coaching role in addition to his other responsibilities. FULL STORY
