He's also throwing the ball 102 times more than our backs have run it this year, and, logically speaking, the more you throw the ball, the more likely you are to throw a couple of picks. Only 5 players have thrown the ball 250 times or more this season, and Jay is one of them. Andrew Luck, Drew Brees & Matthew Stafford are the other four. Andrew Luck is clearly...

Bear's Defense has never looked so bad over a year and a half span since I've been watching football. To allow Ryan Tannehill to have the game of his life looking all-pro reminded me of the Buffalo game. Tucker certainly couldn't stop the run last year. This year he can't stop making mediocre QBs...

  • Jimmy Butler thumb injury might have him miss rest of preseason

    your friendly BullsBlogger
    20 Oct 2014 | 7:41 pm
    MRI on Tuesday Jimmy Butler sprained his thumb Sunday night and did not play against the Cavaliers on Monday. KC Johnson with the details: Jimmy Butler will undergo an MRI on Tuesday in Chicago, but early indications are that his sprained left thumb won't need surgery. The Bulls officially called [Butler] day to day. It was strange to hear Thibodeau tell the media that surgery wasn't warranted before acknowledging the MRI hadn't occurred yet, but in all likelihood this is minor. The Bulls only have one remaining preseason game, Friday, so the Bulls may be cautious with this one and give him…
  • Bulls vs. Cavaliers final score: Derrick Rose puts on a show in Bulls loss

    your friendly BullsBlogger
    20 Oct 2014 | 6:57 pm
    Cavaliers coach David Blatt did say that he'd treat Monday night's PRESEASON SHOWDOWN against the Bulls like a regular season game, and he sort of did that. Even moreso than Thibs! Look at our restrained big-picture thinking head coach over here. So while the Cavs did have their stars in for more time than the Bulls did and won the game, Derrick Rose had a stretch that spanned the 2nd and 3rd quarters that can give Bulls fans plenty of hope. Rose went off for 16 straight Bulls points in that time, include 3 three-pointers. You can check out a lot of that stretch here. As we've seen before in…

    19 Oct 2014 | 7:41 pm
    Hinrich turned back the clock with a 26-point effort as the Bulls staved off the Hornets. On a negative note, Jimmy Butler left the game with a sprained left thumb. The Bulls' second unit had been really struggling in the preseason prior to Sunday night's game against the Hornets, but it was that group that led the way in a 101-96 victory. The victory was marred somewhat by a sprained left thumb for Jimmy Butler, who suffered the injury when going for a steal late in the first quarter: Thibodeau says Butler is "day-to-day" with his left thumb sprain. Needs to see doctor tonight still — Cody…

Today, Cody Westerlund of CBS Chicago reported that Pau Gasol has signaled his desire to be on the floor to close games, a role that has belonged to Taj Gibson alongside Joakim Noah for the last few years. I like to be on the floor when the game is on the line. That’s what I’ve been getting paid for my entire career It’s good to be put in that position. It makes you feel like your coach trusts you to do the best thing out there on both ends of the floor. So it’s a good thing to be on the floor in those minutes, but you also…

From Whistle Sports comes this video focusing on all 37 home runs hit by Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton during the 2014 season, and as a cool aside it keeps a running count of his total home run distance. Stanton's total home run distance is 15,366 feet, which equals 2.91 miles. Chances are the distance would have gone well beyond three miles had he not missed Miami's final 17 games after being hit in the face by a Mike Fiers' fastball. In fact, had he connected for a 474-footer on his 38th…

On Tuesday, the IDNR director insisted the agency would not issue permits to oil and gas drilling companies until either…

The building which housed an indoor flea market, is going to be razed with potential plans of retail spaces, anchor stores and potential apartments.

Logan Square has been an emerging neighborhood, as artists, restaurants and young professionals have transformed the neighborhood into a destination. The parking lot next door to Megamall…

  • Amazon Has a Bona Fide Hit with “Transparent”

    Joe Mathieu
    20 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    There are plenty of times where “the critics” and I don’t agree on things. Happily, this is not one of them. Amazon’s Transparent, starring Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development) and created by Chicago-native Jill Soloway (Six Feet Under), is every bit as good as it’s 98% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes suggests. Transparent revolves around a dysfunctional (though what does that even mean anymore?) LA-based family and the revelation that their father (played by Tambor) is transgender. The dramedy is more drama than laugh-out-loud funny (as Six Feet Under fans…

    I didn’t watch the Livestream of today’s Apple event, where the iPad Mini 3 and Air 2 were revealed. To paraphrase one of my favorite movies of all time, Office Space, it wasn’t that I was too lazy to watch…it’s that I just don’t care. If you want to learn more about the new tablets, click here for the iPad Air 2 or here for the iPad Mini 3. I won’t be covering either below. For those that stuck around…  I have an iPad– an older model, the 3 I think –and it’s just fine, for what it is: a device to surf the web, use Twitter,…

  • Two Weeks with My iPhone 6 Plus, & I Wouldn’t Go Back

    Joe Mathieu
    14 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    The reaction I get from people when they ask to hold my new iPhone 6 Plus is fairly universal: besides questioning my decision to not put a case on it (I loathe phone cases), pretty much everyone exclaims, “it’s too big”. Image via Apple Fortunately, I just don’t agree with that, one bit. And, quite frankly, after spending just two weeks with my new 5.5″ iPhone, I’m confident when I say, I would never want to go back. Having been an iPhone user since the 3G, my single biggest complaint in the last few years about Apple’s mobile product has been the…
