Before The Dress Rehearsal

We’ve been setting you up bit by bit for the season, but we haven’t gotten a chance to muse much. And musing is what we do best. So before the Hawks have their dress rehearsal tonight, thought we’d go through some things (that weren’t covered on the podcast, which was

Bears Preseason Week 4 Preview: THE BUBBLE

Ooooh, it’s roster cuts time! Now, I’m as bottom left politically as a person can get, so naturally I wish every single body in camp had a future playing professional football.

Although the feed was pretty poor, taken straight from the scoreboard there, a couple things worth noting. -Unless there’s a trade of him, I’m guessing that […]
