Chicago Bears Israel Idonije was was of the three finalists in the running for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award, but was not named the winner.
On Friday, the Chicago Bears’ Israel Idonije was introduced as one of the three finals for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award.
The Chicago Bears defensive lineman is among the nominees for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award. The award recognizes both a players skill and community service.
The Chicago Bears have a tradition of defensive excellence. It started with the “Monsters of the Midway” and continues today with players like Lance Briggs, Brian Urlacher and Julius Peppers.
As the final seconds ticked off the clock and the Chicago Bears moved onto the NFC Championship game, all of Chicago was sent into a frenzy as the Bears were now a week away from playing their archrival, with a shot at the Super Bowl on the line.
To say that the Bears’ defense is never satisfied is an understatement. No matter what the outcome of the game is, the defense always feels like they could have done better, that they’re not perfect yet.
So far this week, there has been plenty of discussion about where the Bears-Vikings game will be played. And it seems as if that discussion hasn’t reached Halas Hall.
The Bears have had success this season with their cover two defensive scheme. The Bears didn’t change for Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles, and they probably won’t change for Tom Brady and the Patriots.
After a big victory over the Eagles and winning four straight, the Bears are finally getting respect. Can they win it all? Jay Cutler thinks so.
Leading up to the Bears-Eagles game, all the talk was surrounding Michael Vick and the Eagles’ offense. The Bears defense knew it would be a challenge and the players rose to the occasion.
Preparing for Michael Vick will more than likely be on the minds of the Bears players and coaches the entire week. The great debate is whether or not to spy Vick with Brian Urlacher. Moon Mullin, for one, doesn’t want to see a spy.
It seems as if many people feel that this week will determine how good the Bears really are. Israel Idonije and the Bears have heard that before.
A large part of the 7-3 season for the Bears has been the stellar play of the defense. While the offense has been inconsistent, the defense has dominated in nearly every game.
Coming off two consecutive wins, the Bears prepare to take on the Miami Dolphins. A win against the banged up Dolphins would help the Bears establish themselves as a playoff team.
Most Canadian kids grow up with dreams of playing hockey. Israel Idonije may have had some of those dreams, but he also dreamed of playing in the NFL.
Bills kicker Rian Lindell has missed an extra point attempt against the Bears that ends his streak of extra points at 321.
Hola from Toronto…wait that doesn’t sound quite right. Anyway, the Bears find themselves in a must-win situation north of the border. The road to the playoffs becomes a lot more difficult if they leave Canada 4-4. Everyone at Halas Hall will feel vindicated in their off-week activities if the Bears can beat the winless Bills.
Coming off of their bye week, the Chicago Bears are rested and ready to take on the winless Buffalo Bills.
Many Bears have never been north of the border, but for Israel Idonije, he never thought this would happen to him: playing professional football in his home country. CBS 2’s Megan Mawicke reports.
Julius Peppers’ impact so far this season has gone beyond the stat sheet. And for that reason he needs to be considered as the team’s most valuable player.
