CHICAGO | Imagine tough guys like Brian Urlacher, Lance Briggs and Julius Peppers getting yelled at.
CHICAGO | Remember when your son or daughter made their first tackle, or scored their first touchdown, in Pop Warner football?
GARY | Gary is mourning the loss of native Alex Karras. The actor/athlete died earlier Wednesday at his Los Angeles home. He was 77. A great number of his family members still reside in the city, and Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson extended her condolences on behalf of his hometown.
I spoke by phone to Alex Karras in October of last year as his surprising 4-0 Detroit Lions prepared to meet the Bears on Monday Night Football.
Gary native Alex Karras, who played for the struggling Detroit Lions from 1958 to 1970, is currently in hospice care at his home in Hollywood Hills, Calif., nephew Jeff Karras said Monday night.
CHICAGO | It's his job to find holes, so no one needs to remind Matt Forte that the Bears are in a big one five games into the season.
DETROIT | Matthew Stafford's second touchdown pass put Detroit ahead in the third and Jahvid Best's 88-yard run later in the quarter gave the Lions a double-digit lead in a 24-13 win over the Bears on Monday night.
Menacing? Intimidating? Alex Karras was hide-the-children, lock-the-doors, scary.
CHICAGO | If you walk up to a bank teller and do this, it's called robbery.
