Monday Morning Quarterback: Bears-Buccaneers (10.23.11)

October 24th, 2011 - 8:18 am

It turns out the Bears’ workmanlike itinerary served them well in defeating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 24-18, in London on Sunday. Lovie Smith drew a lot of unnecessary heat from fans and the media for departing for London late in [...]

Monday Morning Quarterback: Bears-Vikings (10.16.11)

October 17th, 2011 - 8:21 am

We certainly learned something about the Bears in their 39-10 victory over the Vikings on Sunday night: if the NFL was divided into social classes a la the American society, the Bears are probably somewhere in the upper middle class. [...]

Monday Morning Quarterback: Bears-Lions (10.10.11)

October 11th, 2011 - 10:54 am

Monday night’s 24-13 loss to the Lions confirmed what many of us fear the Bears have become. They’re old, tired, undermanned and overmatched. Lovie Smith’s defensive system has run its course in this league and Mike Martz’s offense never had [...]

Monday Morning Quarterback: Bears-Panthers (10.02.11)

October 3rd, 2011 - 7:01 am

In a game that made it seem as though we were watching sandlot football, the Bears outlasted the Panthers on Sunday and secured a much-needed, 34-29 conference victory. Neither team seemed to want to play defense — or maybe they [...]

Monday Morning Quarterback: Bears-Packers (09.25.11)

September 26th, 2011 - 7:37 am

Well, so much for balance. In their 27-17 loss to the defending Super Bowl champion Packers, the Bears ran 43 passing plays — 37 pass attempts, three scrambles and three sacks — compared to just nine run plays, two fewer [...]

Monday Morning Quarterback: Bears-Saints (09.18.11)

September 19th, 2011 - 7:10 am

The Bears entered Sunday’s game against the Saints riding an emotional high from their home opener victory against the Falcons. After the 30-13 beating they took in New Orleans, you’ve got to wonder how low they’ll be feeling as they [...]

Monday Morning Quarterback: Bears-Falcons (09.11.11)

September 12th, 2011 - 7:10 am

Jay Cutler threw for over 300 yards and two touchdowns. Matt Forte was the focal point of the offense once again, finishing with 158 total yards and a score. Eight different Bears caught passes. The defensive line dominated as they [...]

Monday Morning Quarterback: Bears-Packers (01.23.11)

January 24th, 2011 - 9:41 am

I’m feeling extra dirty today following Sunday’s 21-14 loss to the Packers and not even three showers could remove the grime. Between the stench of deer urine and body odor from our neighbors north of the border and the foul [...]

Monday Morning Quarterback: Bears-Seahawks (01.16.11)

January 17th, 2011 - 1:01 pm

Unless you’re a big worrier or had not yet bought into the Bears being a legitimately good team, you already knew that a Bears-Packers conference championship game was scheduled for next week even before the Seahawks-Bears game kicked off Sunday [...]

Monday Morning Quarterback: Bears-Packers (01.02.11)

January 3rd, 2011 - 9:18 am

The Bears fell to the rival Packers, 10-3, Sunday evening and aside from not being able to keep a good team out of the playoffs, the result was about as good as one could expect. Sure, I didn’t like to [...]
