With all signs still pointing towards Jahvid Best being fully recovered for next year, and it looking like the Bears will have at least one RB with gametime experience, I found myself asking “hey, how good is Jahvid Best anyway?” My general impression is “quite good.” But with only one truncated season to judge, its […]

The Bears Are Hiding (Links for 06/04)

There is still no big update on the Lynch investigation, but it is looking grimmer the longer time goes by. Check the Buffalo Rumblings link below for more details.
