Mock Draft Nonsense, A Comedy In Three Acts

The Bears season has been over for weeks and fans are impatient for the next season to begin. I am one of those fans. There are mock drafts everywhere and hot takes from the Senior Bowl. However, Barflies know that

Bears Lose To Vikings – Time To Rock and Roll

And the song remains the same. The final game of the 2017 season for the Chicago Bears was another head-banging loss. This time the Bears fell to the division champion Minnesota Vikings. The defeat struck the same chords we’ve heard

A Festivus Miracle: Bears Beat Browns

Bears Win! It’s such a relief to be able to write that statement, as it’s not been written enough this season. The team looked ready to play, with the quiet confidence that playing an 0-14 team brings. I’m so pleased

Bears Offense Needs an Enema

First things first, the Bears must fire Fox. But they won’t so I’m moving on. Another week, another constipated offensive game plan. Seriously, does Fox have a commercial deal with Ex-Lax or something? My husband is a Bears fan, but

Take My Fox, Please

Winning is great. Winning ugly is still great. Yes, somehow less great. But, in many respects though, it was a beautiful victory. I really want to brag about the Chicago Bears defense. Damn, that was something special to watch. The

Rambling Ruminations of a Bears Fan

I’m a reasonably well-informed fan and I’ve been giving thought to a few ideas since the debut of Trubisky. Thought he played well, made some really elite (yes, I said it) throws and the one doozie that was picked. Trubisky
