Before getting into the nuts and bolts of the 2014 Chicago Bears, I figured I should introduce myself to some of the most passionate Bears fans.
As he told you yesterday, I got to know Jeff mostly through Twitter debates after becoming a regular reader of DBB. I have quite a bit of experience blogging myself, previously writing for Bleacher Report and currently writing for cover32 and Bearly Bullogging, a website I launched with my brother. I’ve also been writing a weekly sports column for my day job for a little over 11 years. More of my nonsense can be found on Twitter (@ChiBearsAD), where I usually react before thinking then defend my opinion until you give up.
I am an avid collector of information and I try to present that information in a way that makes sense. I believe statistics are wonderful and essential, but useless if they’re not used in context. (For example, Jay Cutler was never an average or below average quarterback, but his supporting cast from the GM down was terrible. The result was average-to-below average statistics.)
I’ve taken the last month or so off because of my wedding, but Jeff’s vacation coincides with my wife going to India for work. He asked me to fill in and I thought it to be a much better alternative than being bored out of my mind for three weeks.
In Jeff’s absence, I’m hoping to make the readers of DBB think a little, have a lot of fun and hopefully nobody gets hurt.
