Greetings, Bears fans! My name is Ryan and I’m a lifelong, avid Chicago Bears fans.

I first published BearsBeat.com in 2007 as a personal blog to journal my thoughts and opinions about our beloved. It’s been more than a decade and I’ve — hopefully — honed my writing skills and sharpened my views.

Please make this a regular part of your daily (or weekly) reading material. In addition to seeking to inform and educate football fans, this site has the goal to entertain and occupy the thoughts of the fans who visit it.

You can follow me on Twitter, like me on Facebook, or you can reach out via email.

Thanks for visiting, and Bear Down!
