I finished with a 3-1 mark in both straight-up picks and against the spread in the divisional round last week. My goal at the beginning of the season was to try to finish 70% on the season. It was a [...]

Bears could be alone atop NFC North this week

November 19th, 2008 - 11:34 pm

It’s a funny league sometimes. I’ve spoken often this year about how balanced the NFL is and how no team is unbeatable. The Titans currently hold the league’s best record, and yet, there’s nothing flashy about them. They’re not nearly [...]

Ouch. That one stings. And the worst thing about it, too, is that yet again, for the third time this season, the Bears gave away a game in which they had a fourth quarter lead. This time, it was a [...]

Bears-Falcons halftime thoughts

October 12th, 2008 - 1:41 pm

Things do not look good for the Bears right now. The Bears are doing exactly what they planned on doing, which is stop the run and make Matt Ryan beat them. And right now, Ryan is doing just that. I [...]

Bears-Buccaneers postgame thoughts

September 21st, 2008 - 3:57 pm

They blew it. They simply blew it. For the second straight week, they had control of the ballgame and they wrapped it up in gift wrap and presented it to the other team. I don’t care about cliches. I know [...]

Bears offense vs. Buccaneers defense We’ve seen this script before. The Bears enter a game against a physical opponent who likes to run the football and try to stop the run. To counter it, the Bears have to play equally [...]
