  8. BBAO: Bill Musgrave gets fired up

    Kevin Seifert

    Kevin Seifert

    Spend just a few minutes on Mary Ann Bell's blog and you'll feel awful silly, as I did, about getting fired up about one Detroit Lions player sucker-punching another. Bell is the mother of Faith Falzone, the girl whose family Lions quarterback Mat...

  13. Bears want better drafts, not culture change

    Kevin Seifert

    By nature, the Chicago Bears' decision to fire general manager Jerry Angelo leaves them a substantively different organization Tuesday evening. The general manager establishes a long-term football vision for every franchise, and the Bears' will chang...
