Chicago Bears Musical Chairs - Defensive Backs Edition


If the Bears want to add new blood, they have to say goodbye to some familiar faces. Which DBs are vulnerable to the axe?

Chicago Bears Musical Chairs - Who're the odd men out?


The Bears will have to improve their roster to stay ahead of the Packers, Lions, and Vikings in the NFC North. But that means someone has to go. But who?


Congratulations to The Green Bay Packers and their fans.....

As a Bears fan, nothing aches more than watching the hated Pack clinch the Lombardi after outlasting My Beloved Bears for the Halas........unless, of course, the Packers are playing Ben...


Is Charles Woodson a quitter?

The biggest game of his lifetime and he can't make it back onto the field?  It's the Super Bowl man!  Where's Neon Deion and MJD and Darnell Dockett and Raheem Brock when you need them?  I thought J...


Almost two weeks later and I'm still sick of Denver fans......

So, today I'm at work and I'm headed to break when I happen across an outside driver who's coming in to pick up a load of steel.  I am sporting a knit Bears cap circa 2009 (you know, the nice one...

Hell of a gesture by DeSean Jackson, Todd Herremans and Jamaal Jackson


Always nice to see a kid stand up to bullies instead of letting it go on. Apparently, DeSean and two Philly linemen thought so too. Hats off to DeSean, Todd and Jamaal.


Bears should (not) extend Lovie Smith: The Rebuttal.

I'll stick with the same theme as Lester.  The argument that Smith isn't any good because he has no fire has about as much use to me as it does to Lester.  Mike Singletary has tons, and he's out. ...

Sir Charles attacks Cutler's critics


Charles Barkley has a few choice words for the players that attacked Cutler, and singles out MJD, who missed the last two games of the season with a knee injury.....two games that the Jags lost, forcing them out of the playoffs......


T-Train's 1st Annual Staley Awards

Welcome to the 1st Annual Staley Awards.  The Staleys mark the end of the NFL regular season and are awarded for regular season accomplishments.  So without further adu, Let's move on to the...


"Happy New Year" or "Why The Bears Should Pummel The Pack"

     I wanted to start out by wishing all a Happy New Year.  Last year was a great year to be a Bears fan, and here's to hoping that this year is even better!      So yesterday I was over at Acme...

Mike Silver of Yahoo pick the Bears to topple the Pats as his "Take It To The ATM" Pick this week!


Are the Bears suddenly getting some respect? Mike Silver, who has the sports media's largest man-crush on Packer Aaron Rodgers by his own admittance, picked the Bears to continue to surprise by pressuring Brady and winning over the favored Patriots in his "Take It To The ATM" segment of his weekly "Friday Offerings" post. Will wonders never cease?


My take on Eagles @ Bears

via Wow.  It's been a wild week on the threads, hasn't it.  Honestly, I expected this.  The Eagles and the Bears are both riding high on good records and solid winning streaks....


Thanks for a job so well done...........

So, today I came home from a hard night of steelwork.  My back hurts and my arms are rubbery.  I walk through the front door, kiss the kids goodbye as they head off to school and head over to the...


The Bears' Jerry's Kids: Where MDA stands for "Major Draft Atrocities"

So today the Bears released Jarron Gilbert and Jaquin Iglesias, who just happen to be the Bears top two picks from last year's draft.  This got me to thinking:  Is this finally enough for the...


How does a Favre retirement affect the NFC North?

Here we go again.  Brett Favre has informed the Vikings front office that he will not play in 2010.  Now, most of the aticles that will come up in the next few days will deal with the...


Is The NFC North Really That Tough?

  For a while now I've noticed a trend gaining momentum.  Seems that more and more people are dropping comments about how the NFC North is arguably the strongest division in the NFC, in the NFL,...


Offensive Line: TBSD Edition

Tackling the offensive line is a bit more difficult than other positions, as film is hard to come by, and fewer reviews are to be had.  So this was the hardest of the position reviews to do, but...


Free Safeties: TBSD Edition

Realizing that this will take entirely too much space on the site if I continue to post individually for each player, I will instead post the rest by position..... Robert Johnson: Stats...


Major Wright: TBSD Edition

Florida's Major wright ran a 4.48 forty at the combine and pushed 14 reps at the bench, but he is also being projected as a strong safety at the NFL level.  Considered a late 2nd or early 3rd round...


Kam Chancellor. The Bears Should Draft Edition

Virginia Tech's FS Kam Chancellor has generated a lot of talk on this sight over the past few month's , and with good reason.  Hokie's DB coach, Torrian Gray said that Kam might be the "greatest...


Shawn Andrews? Should the Bears take a chance?

So the Eagles released guard Shawn Andrews.  This is a guy with a story. He was the eagles 2004 First round pick.  He missed all but one game in his rookie campaign after breaking his leg in the...


Update on "Chicago Should Draft (Insert Name)!"

Due to the fantastic series being posted by Lester titled Bears Draft Weekend Possibilities (found here for FS, here for WR and here for OL), I've had to move back my own series.  So I'm continuing...


Yahoo reports Chicago may have tampered with Peppers..

Michael Lombardi is reporting that Jerry Angelo may have met with Julius Peppers agent, Carl Carey, in Indianapolis.  Carey has no other NFL talent, so a meeting would be very bad for Chicago, as...


Is it OK to start being an Optimist?

  So far, this offseason has been a tumultuous one.   Given that the Bears defense gave up the 4th most points allowed by a Chicago unit since the 16 game season was installed in 1978, and the 6th...


Perceiving Hester: Devin by the numbers.

So after a disappointing season in which the Bears lost 9 games and Cutler didn't meet expectations in Chicago, regardless of fault (see: Ron Turner), a lot of Bears fans seem to want to dismiss D...


Talent and Da Bears

Has anyone noticed a common theme over the past few years of players who didn't make the cut in Chicago, for whatever reason, finding more success elsewhere? I look at some examples and come to a...
