The Bears Den

bears season is not far off ... cutler hopefully has better communication with his receivers and peppers will help. nfc north is tough again this year.

www.wallofcities.com has a cool pic of a bears den on their website. its for fans who create a room with a chicago bears theme.

Tommie Harris Wants Out of Chicago

Tab on 09.28.10 at 8:52 AM | 3 comments
Last night, Tommie Harris was not in uniform for the Chicago Bears. The question now is whether or not he will wear the orange and blue ever again.


Yesterday, Harris was seen at the Hilton (team hotel) having lunch with his agent, Drew Rosenhaus. The food wasn't the focus of the meeting.

Harris and Rosenhaus were having a heated exchange, with Harris complaining about his relationship with the Chicago Bears. Harris told Rosenhaus that he doesn't feel wanted in Chicago, that the Bears don't respect him, and that he wants out.

The tirade from Harris went as far as the player saying he would quit or retire if the Bears continue to treat him this way.

Rosenhaus has often been painted in the media as an instigator in situations like this, but he was the voice of reason in this situation. He reminded his client that he had been hurt and was working his way back.

I tweeted this news before the game on Monday afternoon, and Harris was subsequently made inactive by the Bears. The reason: coach's decision. This is what started the firestorm:


In case Harris missed the game on the field last night, the Bears defeated a NFC favorite for the second straight week, taking out the Green Bay Packers in prime time.

And they did it without Harris.

Reality is staring Harris and Rosenhaus in the face. He sucks, and he's right that the Bears don't want anything to do with him.

Harris has been a bust ever since the Bears paid him, and now it appears the relationship is headed for a divorce. Based on the conversation that took place in the restaurant at the Hilton yesterday, Harris is as ready for a breakup as the Bears should be.

Here's my appearance on The Score on Tuesday. http://wscr.cbslocal.com/2010/09/28/tab-bamford/

As I said on another forum, the Bears really don't "win" games...the other team just loses them. Packers played horribly, Lions got completely robbed...I bet every game of the season is like this. Bears don't show any promise of anything.

If you look around on any "good team" forum, you will find many posts just like this one. It seems to be a common trait amongst the good teams.

I don't understand, are you saying the Bears are good? That they "won" against the Lions?

8 sacs on Cutler and it's not even the second quarter. Our offensive line is for shit.


It's unbelievable that the Giants are only up 3-0

Collins totally sucked last night.

Although it didn't help that he got no help from his offensive line

Don't worry, I'm sure we'll go looking for a new QB next year, because that's obviously the problem. When will the Bears learn that for the 5+ years we haven't had an offensive line?

Super Bowl: Why not in Chicago?

Adjustments necessary, but we could make it work


David Haugh


January 30, 2011


As I pack layers for a chilly week covering Super Bowl XLV in North Texas and leave the shorts and sandals at home this year, one thought comes to mind: Bolo tie or no bolo tie?

Not really. I immediately think it could be worse. I could be packing boots, and not the cowboy kind — though that might be just as unsettling. I could be spending a week covering the big game in the New York area, which just added 19 inches to its record month of snowfall.

New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., will welcome the Super Bowl in 2014. Indianapolis and its Midwestern climes host the event next year. Even bloody London has been rumored as a potential Super Bowl venue.

You know where I'm going with this, and it isn't Kansas City or Foxboro, Mass. — other football towns curious about hosting a Super Bowl since the New York decision opened the door a crack to all cities.

Why not Chicago?
