Bears make preseason move to Fox; Kramer replaces Ditka as analyst

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

The Bears have a new partner for preseason games, announcing a working relationship with Fox-32 today.

Fox will carry all four preseason games with the Aug. 21 meeting with San Francisco at Soldier Field (a Briggsgate battle) being a national telecast.

Not only is the team changing networks, but Mike Ditka is out as the color analyst for preseason games. He will be replaced by former quarterback Erik Kramer, the guy who holds some of the passing records Sid Luckman does not own. Kramer will team with play-by-play voice Dave Barnett.

Fox will provide a variety of programs on game day throughout the season.

Now, off to the pre-draft/Brian Urlacher press conference. Check back for more details soon.

No more Dikta? C'mon now . . .

Erik Kramer? C'mon! That's ridiculous. If I recall correctly, when he lost the starting QB job in 1994 and Steve Walsh led the Bears to the playoffs, Kramer's quote was: "It's nice we're winning and all, but nobody stops to think how I'm feeling." … Nice! Is that the kind of selfish analysis we're in store for?

DA' Bears...I looked forward to seein coach on da preseason telecast. Really lookin forward to this season. yea right were tankin it already Urlacher wants a few more mill which he should get, after all he is the main act in the circus. Guess they feel like Hester #23 is the new route to take . Chicago in particular seems to bank on guys when the teams are terrible and build them up only to tear them down. Da' Circus.
