Clean Out Ur-lacher
Football fandom is no longer just about who can name every starter on the Bears or who can rattle off statistics about rushing yards and interceptions. Fantasy football empowers football fanatics to draft their own teams, putting their knowledge and power of persuasion to the test. The catch: coming up with a clever team name that sums up the greatness—whether it relates to talent or the scandals of stardom— that defines the team. After deep research in search of the name that best incorporates a Chicago Bear, a lot of cleverness was discovered. Good as Gould, The Gould Standard and Clean Out Ur-lacher caught our eyes. For the musically inclined, we found Forte Ounces to Freedom and Red Hot Julius Peppers. The movie buffs will find Forgetting Brandon Marshall and Forte Year Old Virgin entertaining. Sacks to be Cutler is creative, too, even if you’re in denial. For those who remember the good ole’ days under Da Coach, Get Off my Ditka might appeal to you. But who can top Smoke a Bowe, Drink a Forte or Vick-tory is my Forte?
