I had the pleasure to make my annual trip to training camp in Bourbonnais yesterday.

Though I feel like I get some perspective, I’ve learned over the years that you really can’t take a lot from watching a training camp practice. Some guys have good days, some guys had bad days.

As an example, I some players […]

Bears Have Huge Offseason Coming – What to Watch For

The Bears lost their last game of the season.  Another loss at home. Another loss in the division. Another loss to the Lions.   It makes me sick.   It’s one thing when Hall of Fame QB’s can beat you but the Lions?

That’s why this upcoming offseason is really the big one.  It’s time to […]

From the beginning, this season was labeled a rebuild year for the Bears. I had some hopes that the team would be able to quickly turn it around. They just didn’t have enough to compete at a playoff level.  But they were damn close.  Closer than I expected.

Earlier in the year, my guess was 8-8. […]
