Bernstein: No Need For Urlacher To Retire A Bear

Let’s all stop the stupidity over Brian Urlacher needing to keep some kind of pristine connection to the Bears, as if the mere sight of him limping around the field in any other colors is somehow unthinkable.

Bernstein: No Surprises From Bears

Opinion: The NFL Is Ruining Its Own Brand With Cheap Replacement Refs

Want to know what a company looks like when it fires all its experienced workers and hires on cheap replacements? Watch last night’s embarrassment of a game between Green Bay and Seattle.

Bernstein: Nice Win For Bears, But…

Is Quinn Reneging On Bears-Packers Bet With Wisconsin?

It’s not just Illinois state workers who claim Gov. Pat Quinn isn’t following through on a deal. Wisconsin is still waiting on Quinn to honor the bet he lost when the Chicago Bears fell to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC championship game months ago.
