Why I'm not concerned about Kiffin's ability to quickly implement the Tampa 2 in Dallas

Hey there BTB. I'm a writer for Windy City Gridiron, and i've been thinking in my spare time a few things about the Tampa 2's current state. Since I don't think many of us in Chicago have any idea...

Who's the best player on the Bears?


There's a case for a lot of players on the Bears to be called 'the best'. But what makes them the best?

Don't Worry About Trestman and Cutler...


... because the fate of the season doesn't hang on the Bears perpetually hat-haired head coach, nor their Smoking QB. It lies squarely on the shoulders of Defensive Coordinator Mel Tucker.

Emery's Average Draft


Examining why Jon Bostic and Arthur Brown shouldn't have even been close for the Bears, why the NFL Draft is so error prone, and why drafting average players may be better than drafting good players in the long run.

We'll be breaking down the Bears schedule, by quarter, in the next couple of weeks, first up weeks 1-4. With Cincinnati, Minnesota, Pittsburgh and Detroit, there's a few familiar faces and a few AFC North opponents who look to take the Bears down.

The Math and Statistics thread

I figured there would be at least some value about having a place where we, as a community, would be able to bounce some statistics off each other. I think after Spongie's great intro to what we...

City of Meatballs


Set to the tune of the Smiths.

Will Emery lead the Bears to the Promise Land?


Finding a new Head Coach is difficult business, especially replacing one with as much success as Lovie Smith. Phil Emery's challenge to the Bears may have meant he bit off more than he can chew.

Coaches That Don't Deserve the Axe & a Few That Do


Finding that magic combination of coaching and talent requires a skillful touch... and the discipline to sometimes let things run its course.

If Phil Emery pulls the plug on Lovie Smith this year, the Bears won't be at a loss for quality talent to fit the future vision of the Monster of the Midway.

Nightmares for a Week: Clay Matthews


Clay Matthews has caused headaches for the Bears since he entered the league. Week 14's thrashing exposed the immaturity in the Chicago Bears offensive line.

All I Want for the Holidays is a New OC

Evaluating Lovie Smith, not only as a coordinator, and but as a coach, and how responsibility for his product stacks between him and the rest of the NFL

Free Agent Tackles would Break the Bears Bank


As Attractive as Clady, Albert, or Long is, the Bears can't afford the price tag without mortgaging their future today.

Bears defensive woes against TE's begin again


It may have been more Vernon Davis than the position, but Davis tore up a Chicago Bears defense that has been good against TE's this year

8 Men in the Box Ain't Nuthin to Martz With


Running out of the 2TE/2RB formation was not one of the bright spots for the Chicago Bears loss to the Houston Texans. Plenty of blame for everyone to go around

Is Jay Cutler Erratic Under Pressure?


If a team blitzes Jay Cutler, will he give the ball away?

Evaluating Shea McClellin's Progress


There's been rumblings about certain first round picks by the Bears over the past week. Chris Williams is up and gone, Gabe Carimi looks like our weakest lineman, and Shea McClellin has to show something, prove something in his first year.


Ask Bears Fans Anything Bears-Related
