Dammit.

I took a drink of water.  I felt refreshed. Thirty seconds later, it was back – incessant thirst.  I took another swig of water from my 28 oz. bottle, emptying it for the 5th or 6th time that day. This was the second week of this constant thirst, constant urination.  When I wasn’t pissing, I…

Double Vision: Pace & Nagy’s Journey Begins

As discussed in my previous article, the primary thing that John Fox had going for him upon his hiring was that he was not Marc Trestman.  He never really evolved past that point. Matt Nagy (næg-gēē) isn’t John Fox, and his press conference yesterday proved as much.  He was unabashedly emotional regarding his family and…

Taming, Blaming of the Fox

“Come and play with me,” proposed the little prince. “I am so unhappy.” “I cannot play with you,” the Fox said. “I am not tamed.” The little prince asked, “What does that mean–‘tame’?” “It is an act too often neglected,” said the fox. It means to establish ties.” “‘To establish ties’?” “Just that,” said the…

Long Lay The World

Every Christmas season I generally approach with equal portions joy, holiday spirit, stress, and disappointment.  The first two explain themselves; the latter two are more related to the gift ritual and unfortunate embedding of an allegedly snowy holiday during a time of year where snow is relatively rare. This year things mostly still smack of…

The Bears suck. Nobody cares.

You may or may not have noticed that I’ve barely written about the Bears over the last couple of months.  The ascension of Mitch Trubisky into the role of starting quarterback has featured more downs than ups, but he’s clearly got a long way to go.  The other stifling factor is that this coaching staff…

Insult to Injury

“Even a fool is wise after the event.”  – Homer, The Iliad The Bears are in their bye week, and while a 3-5 start isn’t terrible, it’s certainly not as sexy as a 4-4 record going into the break.  Development of Mitch Trubisky is promising, even if expectations for his rookie year have been tempered from…

“It’s Alive!”

On October 2nd, Mitch Trubisky was named starting quarterback for your Chicago Bears.  Two days later on the 4th, the Harvest Moon glowed orange and full over Halas Hall.  Five days after that we saw the defense play a pretty inspired game against the Minnesota Vikings who, to their credit, went on to beat the…

It’s About Time.

FINALLY. It takes special skills to fuck a play up this badly: pic.twitter.com/fu8j8Bv36G — Deadspin (@Deadspin) September 29, 2017 BENCHED. On Thur night, Glennon became the only #Bears player in 40 years to commit 3 turnovers in one 1/2 twice within the first 4 games of a season — Draft Dr. Phil (@FulphilO) October 2,…

Winning Ugly

On a day when the football world was standing against a belligerent tyrant, the Bears stared down perhaps their greatest nemesis:  Themselves.  There are fewer teams in the NFL more prone to getting in their own way than the Chicago Bears, and recent history has painted an ugly portrait of a team that rarely plays…
