All It Took Was One (Preseason) Game For The Honeymoon To End

Monday, August 17th, 2009

In today’s Chicago Tribune (wait, people still read newspapers?), David Haugh, who covers the Bears, warns Jay Cutler may be too honest for his own good with the media following Saturday’s disappointing showing against Buffalo.  In an offseason and training camp where the media has done nothing short of a providing ...

It’s Good To Know I Have Jerry Angelo’s Ear

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

If I designed the interior of Halas Hall, statues and shrines of Walter Payton, Gale Sayers, Dick Butkus and Mike Singletary would greet you. Portraits of Richard Dent, Mike Ditka and Bill George would cover the hallways.  Sid Luckman's photo might be somewhere in the cafeteria. Headshots of the rest of ...

Jay Cutler Wants To Be A Bear, He Just Doesn’t Know It Yet

Monday, March 16th, 2009

I know it’s a pipe dream, but the Chicago Bears should make a serious play for distraught Denver Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler. The Bears futility under center has been well documented.

Mel Kiper to the Chicago Bears: Pretty Much Draft Everything

Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

Finally A Quarterback I Can Bear

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

Oh, the quarterback carousel in Chicago just doesn’t seem to want to quit. Just months after being anointed The Bearded Savior, Kyle Orton is looking over his shoulder. Orton didn’t have an awful season. He threw for 2,972 yards and 18 touchdowns, but after a midseason ankle injury he wasn’t the ...

So, What Went Wrong?

Monday, January 5th, 2009

After what was arguably the most interesting final Sunday in NFL history -- The Big Lead at least had a premonition of this awesomeness, but it played out far wackier than any of us could have anticipated -- and a fairly decent Wild Card weekend, we're down the final eight playoff contestants. ...

R&R’s Weekend in Review

Tuesday, November 18th, 2008

We're starting a new segment here at Rumors and Rants called "Weekend in Review," mostly because it chronicles the events of the past weekend. I guess we'll have to do it again to qualify as a segment. And by "we" I mean myself. Also, I consider Monday to be part ...
