KICK TANK JOHNSON OFF THE TEAM

The Chicago Bears defensive tackle Tank Johnson was arrested this last thursday when Chicago police found six unregistered firearms at his house. It was the third time in eighteen months that Johnson was arrested. Later in the evening on the 14th, Johnson's friend and bodyguard was shot to death in a nightclub where the two were hanging out. His future with the Chicago Bears is in limbo right now, and for good reason. I personally think they should kick him off the team permanently. He sets a bad example for all professional atheletes. No one should be above the law.

DAVID HESTER SETTING RECORDS!

David Hester, the second-round draft pick for the Chicago Bears this year, had one hell of a game this last weekend. Fans were freakin' out in St. Louis when Hester set a NFL record with his 5th and 6th returns for touchdowns this season. The crowd started chanting, "Let's go, Bears!". Coach Lovie Smith said he almost felt like he was back home. Rex Grossman was looking better this week, too. The Bears just might go all the way!

STAND BY YOUR GROSSMAN

So can Rex Grossman lead the Chicago Bears to a win this next week against St. Louis? That's the question that every Bears fan is asking themselves right now. If he can just react and stop overthinking it, he'll be fine. I think Coach Lovie is right. Grossman will not get any better by being sidelined. I look forward to seeeing the game this next week. I've got my ticket!

RICKY MANNING'S BAD BEHAVIOR

So when I read stories about celebrities assaulting folks, I always wonder how the celebrity could let themselves get into that situation. Case in point, the Chicago Bears leading defensive back, Ricky Manning, has been charged with assaulting a man at Los Angeles Dennys. The news I read said he punched and kicked the man in the face until he lost consciousness. What the hell was he thinking? I have a feeling that whatever could have been said, it probably didn't warrant being beat unconscious. I hope he really learns that violence is not the answer.

Chicago Bears Brush Off Giants

What we really brushed off was that foolish loss to Miami. I’m glad our Bears didn’t let that faze them, though I have to admit I was perturbed at their being down 13-10 at the half.

The second half was a whole nother game, including Grossman throwing three TD passes. Coolest of all was Devin Hester, and I mean cool as a cucumber, grabbing the Giants’ field goal that didn’t quite make it and just watching them mosey off the field, leaving him to take off and run 108 yards for a touchdown. That tied a record the Bears’ Nathan Vasher set last year—all but impossible to beat the record: where would you run from, the locker room?

Da Bears are looking bigger than giants these days!

I Knew It Was Coming

The Bears’ perfect season was earned. It was no fluke. Still, I figured the odds on keeping the streak for 17 games…not good. What I expected, though, was a loss at Giants Stadium next week, or maybe in Foxboro at the hands of the New England Patriots.

So I knew a Chicago loss was coming. Just not in Chicago or delivered by the now 2-and-6 Miami Dolphins. Well, that’s just that much less pressure on the Bears on down the stretch. We can concentrate on the stats that really matter: the Ws.

Madden Likes Bears (and some other team)

With the World Series going on, NBC football commentator John Madden had time for an interview with Scott Fowler, which I spotted on line. Most of it was about the Carolina Panthers, and a lot was about the Dallas Cowboys and the whole Bledsoe vs. Romo quarterback thing.

The part I cared about was the last remark: Madden thinks the best teams in the NFC right now are the New York Giants and the Chicago Bears. Naturally, I agree. Or at least I think he's half right.

Chicago Bears Want a Prettier One Against Seattle Seahawks

It will be good to be back at my blog spot again--just so I don't undo the charm that my Chicago Bears seem to have with them so far this season! Last game (the 19-16 win over the Minnesota Vikings) especially seemed to hang on at least as much luck as skill. But undefeated is what we are, and undefeated we shall stay.

If we can beat the Seattle Seahawks, that is. Okay, the Seahawks were in the Super Bowl last year, and they would like to stay undefeated themselves. But Lovie Smith and da Bears like a challenge, and so do all the Chicago fans at Soldier Field and around the world who'll be cheering 'em on tonight!

Bears Hang On To Whole Team

Looks like Lovie Smith and the Bears’ management know we’ve got a good thing going, because we’re going to have all 22 of our starters back. Of course, that includes Rex Grossman, too. One difference is that we’ve added Brian Griese to the team, just in case our starting QB needs backup. The whole season looks pretty solid to me right now. In June.

Chicago Bears fan crosses the lake into enemy territory.

I have been watching a lot of NBA Playoff coverage and a few of the games. I am looking for the Detroit Pistons to win out against the Cleveland Indians. My brother would kill me if I didn’t. I think the Miami Heat have a good chance to beat the New Jersey Nets so I suppose the Pistons will meet them in the Eastern Conference Finals. Go Pistons!

Getting a little sweaty in the palms.

I wish this draft would just happen. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not going to be able to fill all the holes before then so I am afraid this is a really important draft for us. All the speculation is just too much for me. I am going to have to hide out until after Draft Day. Just let me know what happens. I can’t watch.

It has been too long

The Chicago Bears have acquired Brian Griese for the back up quarterback position. Rex Grossman will remain our starter of course and Kyle Orton is the third stringer. Some have said this will be our strongest line up at the quarterback position in five years. What do you think?

Bears Fan Convention this Weekend

The Chicago Bears had a great 05-06 season and I think that was talked about at this year’s Bears Fan Convention. Bears QB Rex Grossman was available for autographs that evening, but only for children. I didn't go to the convention because I spent my hard earned cash on some great seats for the Chicago Bulls versus Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday.

Confidence Can Take You Places

The Chicago Bears are hopeful for winning at least a divisional title in 2006. Our goals are set high, no just because a wild card team just won the Super Bowl, but because we know that when we play to our potential we are champs.

Kobe Not a Wilt By Far

I think that Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers is a great player and that he deserves a lot of praise for scoring 81 points in one game. People have been comparing him to Wilt Chamberlain and I think that is just because he is the second highest scorer under Wilt. I do not think that Kobe Bryant has the depth of talent or character to be compared to a basketball legend like Wilt Chamberlain.

Carolina Threatens Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears meet the Panthers on Sunday in their first NFC Championship game since 1998. Not even a loss could muddy the Bears fine reputation as a winning team this season. We had some great wins and our defense was consistently unstoppable in the regular season. The Panthers impressed the world last week with their complete shutout victory over the New York Giants. Eli Manning had a terrible game and was plagued by turnovers throughout the game. If we play it right and don’t get flustered we can surely overpower and out play Carolina with ease.

Bears Give Vikings the Win

The Chicago Bears loss to the Minnesota Vikings really meant nothing. We rested a lot of our starters and tried to have a kind of bye week because we had already clinched a playoff spot. We allowed the Vikings the 34-10 because we didn’t need the victory and we had already earned a first-round bye. Our starters will be extra rested when we play our first playoff game at Soldier Field. We have the chance to play the Buccaneers, Giants or Panthers. The Bears could possibly get home-field advantage for the NFC Championship, if the Seahawks lose and we win our second-round playoff games. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope for a Super Bowl finish to this awesome season.
