Ryan Pace Should Share the Blame for Bears Suckage

It is no secret that the Chicago Bears are an absolute trainwreck, dumpster-fire, and nightmare all wrapped up into one. It is almost a foregone conclusion that head coach John Fox will not be leading the team next year. He has taken on a large amount of the blame for the 3-9 Bears and rightfully so. So why does GM Ryan Pace seemingly get a pass? The way the Bears are structured Pace handles personnel while Fox handles the coaching hires and thus all of the playcalling. There is no doubt that the coaching has been a step below...

Jimmy Garoppolo Trade Should Have Bears Fans Upset

You didn’t hear it here first, but you certainly heard it by now. Handsome Jimmy G is on his way to the San Francisco for a mere 2nd round pick. John Lynch has shown to be a masterful GM thus far, exceeding the skills of Ryan Pace not once but twice. Although the Bears were not directly involved in this trade between the 49’ers and the Pats, they are certainly feeling the sting of a missed opportunity. The Misinformation Campaign That Never Was At the end of the 2016 seasons, it was very clear to Bears fans that a new...

Well US soccer fans, it happened. The Men’s National team failed to qualify for the World Cup.

Hell in a Cell brings SmackDown Back from the Dead

Halloween is quickly approaching and that can only mean more ghouls, goblins, and zombies. The first weekend in October saw a different kind of resurrection from the dead in the form of the Hell in the Cell Pay Per View. It was not quite the home run that SmackDown needed, but it was a step in the right direction by all means. Shock of the Night (Zayn saves the day) This almost doesn’t need mentioning. The arrival of Sami Zayn in the nick of time to save his former friend/foe/friend shocked the WWE universe to its core. We all...
