The Bears "fattened up" on the Lions by going 4-2 over three years? Do the math, einstein. That means that they had one sweep over one of the worst teams in the league in three years. I would hardly call that fattening up. And why only use the results from the last three years? Why not the last six? Or eight? Probably because the larger sample size of the Bears record against the Lions, once again, doesn't support your flimsy thesis. If you're going to use non sequiturs to to prop up a BS story, at least try not to lead with them.

This article is another good example of Chicago's Award winning B.S. Journalism!!

Trib writers never research their facts. Heck even newbie reporters know they have to do that before writing a story. That is the 1st rule of journalism. Check your sources and facts.

Trib reporters only write good things about the cubs. About the BEARS they sometimes try to write the truth, but they still fail.

The truth or something positive about the SOX in nonexistent.

Is that why they call a reporter that is just starting out at his profession, a "cub" reporter?

Seems befitting for all Tribune Reporters, to be Being called "cub" reporters.

Yes, write an article on how stupid the Viqueens are for going after a joke like Sage Rosenchokes.

"I thought he was a pretty good talent," one general manager said of Omiyale, who will line up at left guard at mini-camp this week. "He could be a starter. He has developed, his body has developed. I think he's more of a left tackle, but could be tackle or guard. It's a good signing."

Other GMs think he could be a LT, and the Bears have him penciled in at RG when they do not currently have a RT and their LT is essentially a rookie - go figure

At least the Lions got rid of Rod. He was a nice man, but wholly unable to be a head coach in the NFL. He would repeat his mantras to the point where you thought he had OCD. Maybe it will work for da Bears. It sure as heck didn't work for the Lions. They were 1 and 23 his last 24 games. Think about that - 23 losses in 24 games. Know how hard that is to do in the NFL?

Not that having that moron Matt Millen as GM didn't contribute to this mess...

Coach Schwartz will have a personal therapist to be made available to all players.
