Now, unless there is an unforeseen performance from Webb, Williams or a scrapheap left tackle that doesn’t appear to actually exist, chances seem slim that the Bears’ 26-year championship drought will end this fall.
With LeBron James finally getting the championship he’s sought for so long and plenty of people still unwilling to give him their respect, it’s a good time to look back at how he and Chris Bosh wound up joining Dwayne Wade in Miami.
Epstein cited “philosophical differences” that led to the firing of Rudy Jaramillo on Tuesday, and it’s obvious the lack of taking pitches and working counts was a major part of those differences.
For the seemingly endless holes the Cubs have right now and the lapses he’s had, there’s no reason to think Starlin Castro is untouchable when it comes to building for the teams future.
Despite rushing for more yards per game last year than Adrian Peterson, Marshawn Lynch and Chris Johnson, the Bears are right in their hesitance to sign Forte to a massive contract.
The Bulls currently hold a two game lead in the standings over the Heat, but two games left against Miami could easily make up that differential. Here’s a deeper look at what remains before the playoffs for both teams:

After losing to Ohio State in a heart-breaker Wednesday night, Northwestern is still sitting right on the edge of the NCAA Tournament bubble.
A big to-do was made about an internet rumor Sunday night that had the Bulls sending Carlos Boozer and potentially C.J. Watson to the Lakers in exchange for Pau Gasol.
With Derrick Rose again out it was Deng that was perhaps the most key-cog in getting the Bulls offense going as he had a career-night from beyond the arc, hitting 6/9 three-point attempts in route to matching Carlos Boozer with a game-high 23 points.
“(Rose) went thru his workout and didn’t have problems” Thibodeau said. “Feeling a lot better but we’re just going to wait and see how he feels tomorrow.”
The Bulls improved to 24-7 on the season and guaranteed head coach Tom Thibodeau an appearance as the head coach of the Eastern Conference squad in the 2012 NBA All-Star Game.
We saw how without Jay Cutler the Bears went from being a prime contender in their conference to being amongst the worst teams in the entire NFL.
That was as ugly as it gets. It feels like I’ve said that three weeks in a row now but the Seattle Seahawks looked like world-beaters at the hands of the Chicago Bears Sunday.
So, that happened. With the Bears leading 10-0 with 4:34 to play and 63 yards of (somewhat) green grass in front of Tim Tebow and the Broncos offense, the “Almighty One” found his magic and wound up a 13-10 overtime winner against the Bears.
A week ago, it was understandable to remain optimistic about the Bears chances going forward, despite obvious issues. This week, it’s impossible.
They haven’t looked truly remarkable since their Week 1 thrashing of Atlanta, but in running the ball better of late and an improved defense, the playoffs don’t seem as far fetched as they did after the Green Bay and New Orleans debacles earlier in the year.
It’s what you need to do against bad teams — beat them badly. Its not a game that anyone really learned a ton about the Bears in their thrashing of the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night; however, the Bears now sit 3-3 and are still very much alive in the race for an NFC Wild Card berth.
After a 30-13 defeat at the hands of the New Orleans Saints, the Bears now sit at 1-1 before the Week 3 showdown at Soldier Field with Green Bay.
A 30-12 win in Week 1 — in a game the Bears entered as a three-point home underdog — means there was a lot of good shown at Soldier Field on Sunday afternoon. A look now at who really stuck out and a couple of things that still need work.
