The Puncher #StoryTimeWithEarl

There were always fights during training camps. That’s understandable when guys are vying for a roster spot and trying to provide for their families. But after the season starts, if people are still throwing blows, we have a significant problem. A problem that cannot be solved unless you change the culture, starting with the coach. A new coach and a change in the culture did not happen as expected. In the locker room, there are a ton of Alpha males. Guys that think they look good, dress well, are powerful and highly intelligent. That was the makeup of the 2013 Chicago Bears locker room. A new offensive scheme against a …

Man Down #StoryTimeWithEarl

December 18th, 2011 will forever be etched in the brain. Injuries began to riddle the team with QB #1 breaking his hand, and the team rallied behind QB#2. The team was on a three-game losing streak and looking to stay in the playoff hunt.  The down was third, and distance was six on own six-yard line. The play comes in from the sideline. We rush to the line of scrimmage and get set. I had a return route, a six-yard out then back under. WR #1 had a Bang 8 (post) route. We break the huddle and get aligned. WR #1 had a long-distance route, so he was on the …

Thumbs Up #StoryTimeWithEarl

My playing days with the Bears granted me the opportunity to play with Hall of Famers. Notably, on the defensive side. LB#1 already being inducted, LB#2 on the way and of course DE #1.  Future Hall of Fame DE #1 was very quiet. He kept to himself and spoke mostly in joking manners. His ability to connect with players without really talking was always a cool thing to see. Safe to say he was introverted. Playing with him and getting to see his athletic abilities on display daily was indeed a treat. That was until the day came where we would meet in the first-team offense vs first team defense. …

When a Silent Coach Speaks #StoryTimeWithEarl

Lovie Smith is known for his calm demeanor. His bright smile and nomad beard highlight his facial features. These traits can be misleading — the warm and charming smile with a smooth and swift head nod to avoid any conversation. But, after one particular game Coach, Smith asked to speak with me.  After watching the NFC Championship Game limp off the field and a 300-pound sumo dancing defensive tackle in the end zone to close out the 2010-11 NFL season. There were high expectations for the 2011-12 NFL Season. The offense and defense were returning starters, and this was the second season for Offensive Coordinator Mike Martz. Spirits were high …
