Pro Football Hall of Famer George Blanda passed away today at the age of 83. Blanda’s career spanned 26 years and four teams including the Bears, Colts, Oilers, and Raiders. Incredibly, Blanda continued his career until he was 48. Not only did he play quarterback and throw for […]

Help is on the way. Today marks the beginning of NFL free agency. It appears the Chicago Bears are playing the role of the Washington Redskins as the league’s biggest spenders so far.
Reggie Bush made a long distance call during the ’06 NFC Championship game against the Bears. Unfortunately, his shenanigans marked the final points of the day as Sean Payton’s crew fell to the Bears 39-14. The important lesson of the day is simple. When you celebrate, make sure […]

Roughly 65 seconds into their battle with the Arizona Cardinals, Harris punched Arizona offensive lineman Deuce Lutui in the head. The decision to eject Harris […]
