James Harrison And Channing Crowder Should Retire

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

I was initially going to make fun of James Harrison for whining about the new hitting rules and threatening to retire yet again. So dramatic! But then it seemed like he was one player who was just upset he got fined for doing what he was very obviously told to do ...

Jay Culter To Miss Chicago Bears Game On Sunday

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

Word has just come down from on high (ESPN) that Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will not play Sunday while recovering from a concussion. The Bears will instead start Todd Collins at quarterback against the winless Carolina Panthers. Cutler was concussed during Chicago's 17-3 loss on Monday. The Bears' offensive line ...

Now that the 2010 NFL Draft is in the books, things are happening around the league as teams make moves to fill out their rosters for the upcoming season. On top of that, recent mini-camps have given us a glimpse of some changes that might be in store for some ...

My 10 Most Agonizing Sports Losses

Friday, April 9th, 2010

The look on Willie Veasley's face after Monday night's championship game loss to Duke says it all. Actually, you can't see his face, which says even more. It was one of the most heart-wrenching losses that one could experience as a player or fan, and I don't say that just ...

Chicago Makes Sure It’s A Bear Market

Friday, March 5th, 2010

For the Chicago Bears, the NFL Draft started midnight EST Thursday. Yesterday, I called my friends who are Bears fans - like myself - to remind them of that fact. Without a first or second round pick because of the Jay Cutler and Gaines Adams (RIP) trades, the Bears really only ...

Just to stick it to Phillips: Taylor Mays is all hat and no cattle - Sports Illustrated Revenue sharing is making an impact - Baseball America Guy Moriss is still a dick, even at Texas A&M-Commerce - The East Texan The Nets will do anything to get you to come to their games ...

Super Bowl Ironies

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

A few leftover notes from this year's Super Bowl: - How fitting is it that the two players most responsible for breaking Colts fans' hearts in this year's Super Bowl were rooted on by the very same fans in their collegiate careers? Purdue alum Drew Brees was the MVP of the game, ...

Fast Willie Might Be Old, But Still Fast Enough For Plodding Bears

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

On Tuesday, I expounded on the Chicago Bears' inability to land an offensive coordinator for next season.  Reasons range from Lovie Smith's job security (or lack thereof) to a petulant quarterback behind an aged offensive line. But could one possible reason for candidates jolting the Bears be the fact that Chicago ...
