Bears-Less Sunday: NFL Week 3 Pre-Party Open Thread

Bears-Less Sunday: NFL Week 3 Pre-Party Open Thread

The Bears are off today, but there's still a lot of Bears football to break down and preview and a lot to discuss in the NFL. Join us for the Pre-Party Open Thread. So now we're already back to this. We can't go three weeks without having to have a Bears-less Sunday, apparently. But that's okay, because there's still some intriguing football on today, including an early matchup of the Packers and Lions as both teams try to claw themselves out of the 1-1 gridlock the entire division is in. The division matchups this week go as follows: Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions1:00 PM ETReason to...

NFL Week: Chicago Bears vs New York Jets

NFL Week: Chicago Bears vs New York Jets

After pulling out a thrilling fourth-quarter win against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night, the Chicago Bears return to primetime as they take on the Jets on Monday Night Football. So last week, the season was over and the Bears shouldn't have shown up to play the Niners because the season was over and they shouldn't bother showing up. This week, they're going to the Super Bowl. How things change. The Bears started Sunday night sputtering out of the gate, got points at the half, held the Niners to three points in the second half and in less than fifty game-seconds went from thirteen...

Bears vs Jets Injury Report

Bears vs Jets Injury Report

The Bears added Shea McClellin to the injury report this week, and released the full injury report for tomorrow night's game. The injury report this week added a surprise, as Shea McClellin hit the list with a hand injury. He didn't practice on Friday or Saturday, and is already listed as out. Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery are both still listed as questionable with their ankle and hamstrings, respectively, though we saw what Marshall did last week. Josh Morgan may be closer to back with his groin injury and is listed as probable. For the full injury...

Bears vs Jets: Six-Pack Keys to Victory

Bears vs Jets: Six-Pack Keys to Victory

The Bears again face a mobile quarterback, high-percentage throws, a strong running game, and a ferocious front-line. How can they claim victory on Monday night? 1) Let Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery Work The Jets will send players from just about every direction and probably invent a few new directions in their attempts to get to the quarterback. That can cause some problems in getting a deep passing game going. With two giant mismatches in Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, the Bears don't necessarily need that. Get the ball out and let them work, or put the ball in play and tell...

Bears Vs Jets Fantasy Football: Start Jay Cutler This Week

Bears Vs Jets Fantasy Football: Start Jay Cutler This Week

This week's Monday Night Football matchup has some intriguing implications for the Bears' offense. Plot twist: as much time as I spend writing pieces that are usually about the teams the Bears face, I don't often pay enough attention to their fantasy implications. But, this game does have some pretty intriguing fantasy implications, so we'll go over some of the Bears options, then turn our attention to the Jets. Bears If you have any of the Bears' Prime 5 (Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett, Matt Forte), you could do a lot worse than starting them, but a couple...

Chicago Bears vs New York Jets: Game Time, TV Schedule, Radio, Online Streaming and More

The Bears' tour of prime time continues as they look to head to 2-1 with a victory over the New York Jets. How can you enjoy the game? For three quarters, the Bears didn't play well offensively and let the game against the Niners nearly get out of hand. The defense, however, put their foot down, and the offense took advantage of two short fields in the fourth quarter to add fourteen points and take the lead, and eventually, the win. They now sit at 1-1. Now, they head to Monday Night Football and take on the Jets in New Jersey. Here's how you can watch it: Game Time: Monday, September 22,...

Chicago Bears on-the-field leaders: Offense and Defense

Focus and on-field leadership are the topic of this week's Marshall Faulk question. This week’s focus: FOCUS. On-the-field leaders wanted! Here’s my question for @sbnation: http://t.co/DP2hjWd7xN #GMCPlaybook — Marshall Faulk (@marshallfaulk) September 16, 2014 For more than a decade, Olin Kreutz and Brian Urlacher were the offensive and defensive field-generals for the Chicago Bears, a fact that was widely-known and never disputed. Among all of the changes we have seen over the last couple years in Chicago, including weekly appointment of team captains, there is a lot of new...

The Weekend Bears Den: September 20, 2014 - Chicago Bears vs New York Jets week 3 news & notes

"Game previews and varied degrees of arghlblargle from renowned columnists" - Steven Schweickert, on the Weekend Bears Den. Cutler excels in two-minute drill - Mark Potash: Since joining the Bears, Jay Cutler is fifth among NFL QBs with a 90.6 passer rating in the last two minutes of a half or a game, and the only one whose rating improves in those hurry-up situations. Chris Conte has solidified safety spot after rough 2013, offseason surgery - Patrick Finley: ‘‘When you see [fans] telling you to go kill yourself, hoping you die, that you don’t deserve to live... it’s not a fun...

Devin Hester:

Devin Hester: "I wasn't happy the last three, four years in Chicago"

Devin Hester had a ridiculous evening for the Atlanta Falcons last night in their 56-14 win over Lovie Smith's Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After the game, Hester had a few comments about his time in Chicago. Watching Devin Hester run wild for the Atlanta Falcons is a sore spot for some Chicago Bears fans. He was one of the most popular players during his time in Chicago because of his electrifying returns and the fact that he was always a threat to score with the ball in his hands. As a return specialist he has no equal, but as a wide receiver, he struggled at times. I really don't think the...

Bears Playbook - The Defensive Youth Movement

Bears Playbook - The Defensive Youth Movement

The Bears finally showed signs of life to end the first half, but the 49ers came into the second half ready to score another touchdown. Let's take a look at how Kyle Fuller, Will Sutton, and Ego Ferguson held San Francisco and kept the comeback dream alive. It was no minor miracle that the Bears defense held Colin Kaepernick to only 17 points in the first half, a fact that the 49ers seemed all too aware of as they opened the second half.  The home team put together a beautiful drive, methodically driving the ball down until they found themselves in the shadow of their goalposts.  But...

Jets Should Give A Heavy Dose Of Ivory To Chicago Bears

Jets Should Give A Heavy Dose Of Ivory To Chicago Bears

A lot is being made of our passing attack this year, and rightfully so. You need a balanced offense to really get the defense on edge. However should we be feeding the hot hand in Ivory. At the start of this season, Marty Mornhinweg promised to feed the hot hand with the New York Jets running game. We have three talented backs in Chris Ivory, Chris Johnson and Bilal Powell. However through two weeks of the season, Chris Ivory is head and shoulders the hottest hand. Should we reward his play with increased repetitions against the Bears? So far the snaps have been split evenly between...

'Yo, Adrian!' Like 'Rocky,' Bears begin to define identity - Moon Mullin: That identity involved playing suddenly elusive "Bears football," the exact nature of which players and coaches admitted hadn’t been established through a halting preseason and bumbling opening loss to the Bills. Frey’s move back to nickel is ‘second nature’ - Mark Potash: Isaiah Frey’s experience at nickel allows Kyle Fuller to start at corner and Tim Jennings to play corner full-time.

Week 3 Thursday Night Football open thread: Buccaneers at Falcons

Week 3 Thursday Night Football open thread: Buccaneers at Falcons

Week 3 starts off with an All-NFC South affair that features former Bears on both sides. Week 3 of the 2014 season starts off with some familiar faces for fans of the Chicago Bears, as Lovie Smith's Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-2, coming off a 19-17 loss to the St Louis Rams) travel to the Atlanta Falcons (1-1, lost 24-10 to the Cincinnati Bengals) in an all-NFC South clash. Apart from Lovie himself, quarterback Josh McCown will be a focal part of the game for Tampa Bay, of course.  It's probably fair to say that the McCown signing hasn't worked as well as hoped, with the team fielding the...

Chicago Bears Sackwatch 2014: Week 2 vs. San Francisco 49ers

Chicago Bears Sackwatch 2014: Week 2 vs. San Francisco 49ers

With two new faces on the offensive line, an injury plagued receiving corps and a talented defense to prepare for, it could have been an ugly night for the passing game of the Chicago Bears. After a sluggish start Jay Cutler found his rhythm, in part, thanks to the pass protection. Even without outside linebacker Aldon Smith, the San Francisco 49ers had three sacks in their week one game against the Dallas Cowboys. They may not be full strength, but they still possess a talented group of defenders that can get after the quarterback. Additionally, they were opening their brand new stadium,...

Brandon Marshall on the current climate of the NFL: "I think it's a shame"

Yesterday, the past of Chicago Bears' wide receiver Brandon Marshall was at the center of the press conference called by attorney Gloria Allred. Today Marshall called a press conference to speak on a number of items. Yesterday attorney Gloria Allred called a press conference to expose a domestic violence cover up by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the Denver Broncos.

Chicago Bears re-sign corner Demontre Hurst to final spot on 53-man roster

Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery made some roster moves on Tuesday, adding Isaiah Frey and Rashad Ross, and yesterday he made some additions to the practice squad.  There was one more spot left on the roster, and the sense was that the Bears were waiting to see what their depth needs would be. Today, they made their move: #Bears sign CB Demontre Hurst to the 53-man roster. Can play the nickel but move might be special teams motivated. 2 tackles in opener. — Brad Biggs (@BradBiggs) September 18, 2014 Demontre Hurst spent last season on the practice squad after entering the...

Accusation of cover up in past Brandon Marshall domestic violence incident

Accusation of cover up in past Brandon Marshall domestic violence incident

Earlier today attorney Gloria Allred held a news conference about an allegation of domestic violence in the NFL. The news conference centered on some 2007-08 incidents by current Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who was then a member of the Denver Broncos. Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall has a long history of domestic violence. That's a fact. Another fact is that he was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder in 2011, and since his diagnosis, Marshall hasn't run afoul of the law. Earlier today the following tweet was sent which put the NFL on...
