Dedication to run could solve the Chicago Bears’ woes on offense

To say the Chicago Bears need to run the ball more would be an oversimplification, but it is something they’ve had success doing and could open up the rest of their offense. Every team says they want to run the ball more, so it has become cliché, but, with the Bears, it isn’t just about the standard football logic. Running fits what the Bears players do best and what their team...

How I Acquired LeSean McCoy & Matt Forte

In my $300 buy in fantasy football league, I drafted last in a 12 man league. I went with a strategy that clearly backfired. I drafted A.J. Green and Brandon Marshall with back to back picks. Not only have the both of them dealt with injuries early on in the NFL season, but it really left me with a WEAK group of running backs. Luckily, Ahmad Bradshaw has been scoring touchdowns...

Chicago Bears; recipe in beating Atlanta
