    Fans of Bears, Rodgers, 49ers should be excitedNov 15, 2011 12:00 AM
    A look around the NFL shows the Bears and Lions headed in different directions, Aaron Rodgers putting up numbers that obliterate Brett Favre's, Tim Tebow winning unconventioanlly and the 49ers flexing their muscles.

     
  • Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher makes things tough for Eagles running back LeSean McCoy during Monday’s victory.

    Bears can take control of playoff race Nov 8, 2011 12:00 AM
    The Bears went into Philadelphia and overcame adversity while answering a lot of questions about themselves. A team that last month was just 2-3 and in danger of being left in the NFC North dust of the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions is now in the thick of the playoff fight, and ahead on points.

     
  •  Jay Cutler would be better off if he stopped the habit of throwing off his back foot.

    Just trying to help as Bears enjoy bye week Oct 24, 2011 12:00 AM
    Sunday's victory has the Bears back in the playoff hunt, but there are issues that need to be addressed during their off week and before their next game, a Monday night contest against the Eagles in Philadelphia on Nov. 7.

     
  •  Bears running back Matt Forte rushed for 205 yards in Sunday’s victory over Carolina.

    Bears need to establish the run vs. Lions Oct 4, 2011 12:00 AM
    The Bears' best chance for springing an upset on the Lions in Detroit next Monday night seems obvious -- hand the ball to running backs Matt Forte and Marion Barber as often as possible.

     
  • Even Bears kicker Robbie Gould doesn't care for the new kickoff rule because he says it won't help avoid injuries.

    NFL's kickoff rule in danger of ruining game Sep 27, 2011 12:00 AM
    The NFL's new rule moving kickoffs up to the 35-yard line has negatively impacted kickoff returns, one of the most exciting plays in the game, especially for a team like the Bears, who have Devin Hester and Johnny Knox.

     
  •  Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and his wide receivers need to do a better job of executing “hot” reads when the defense blitzes. Poor pass protection wasn’t the only problem Sunday against New Orleans as Bears wide receivers failed to break free from single-coverage matchups and Cutler failed to get them the ball.

    Bears too cold when it comes to executing hot reads Sep 20, 2011 12:00 AM
    There's plenty of blame to go around for a Bears offense that failed miserably at countering the New Orleans Saints blitzes. Beyond the Bears’ porous offensive line and poor play-calling, Jay Cutler was unable to get the ball to the “hot” receiver, and those receivers didn't beat one-on-one coverage.

     
  • Grading the Bears in Week 2Sep 18, 2011 12:00 AM
    Grading the Bears in Week 2

     
  • Charles Tillman turned out to be quite a catch for the Bears in the second round of the 2003 draft.

    Bears GM Angelo's draft history not all badSep 13, 2011 12:00 AM
    As much criticism as Bears general manager Jerry Angelo gets for his early-round foul-ups in the draft, he rarely gets credit for his later-round picks who are again playing prominent roles. And Smith, too, comes in for an inordinate amount of criticism anytime the Bears don't make the playoffs or lose two games in a row. So, here's a dose of reality. Since 2005, the Bears' combined record is 59-38.

     
  • Much roster work ahead for Bears Jul 19, 2011 12:00 AM
    With a new CBA expected to take effect later this week, it will provide NFL teams a slim window in which to re-sign their own unrestricted free agents. So the Bears will be busy in the days immediately after a new deal becomes official.

     
  • NFL removes one of its most exciting plays Mar 22, 2011 12:00 AM
    The NFL's new rules for kickoffs not only hurt the Bears immeasurably but create a watered-down product for fans.

     
  • DeMaurice Smith, executive director for the NFL Players Association, arrives to speak with reporters as negotiations between the NFL owners and players go unresolved, at the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service in Washington, Friday. He is joined by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch at left.

    Congrats, NFL: Greed, deception and deceit all win out Mar 11, 2011 12:00 AM
    Labor talks have broken down between the NFL and its players union on how to divvy up $9.3 million in reveue, throwing the dispute into the courts and imperiling the regular season.

     
  • Simply put, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler would have finished Sunday’s game against the Packers if he was physically able.

    No merit at all to criticism of Cutler Jan 25, 2011 12:00 AM
    Anyone still harping on Jay Cutler’s lack of toughness just doesn’t get it or has never experienced a similar injury.

     
  • Bears head coach Lovie Smith, in 2007 as the Bears fell apart in the second half of Super Bowl XLI.

    Keeping Lovie Smith pays off in big way for BearsJan 19, 2011 12:00 AM
    Raise your hand if you think the Bears would be playing for the NFC championship Sunday had Lovie Smith been fired after last season's 7-9 finish, their third straight without a playoff game.

     
  • Looking back on all the Bears’ breaks this season Jan 11, 2011 12:00 AM
    Getting the sub-.500 Seattle Seahawks at home on Sunday is just the latest stroke of good fortune that seems to have followed the Bears all season.

     
  • While Jay Cutler's former position coach in Denver has struggled in Seattle, Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz has the offense rolling toward the playoffs.

    Bears' Smith was right about coordinators Dec 28, 2010 12:00 AM
    Remember 11 months ago when Bears' critics contended Lovie Smith was settling as he promoted Rod Marinelli to defensive coordinator and Mike Martz to offensive coordinator after long searches?

     
  • Bears’ playoff path rosy, but then it all depends on defense Dec 14, 2010 12:00 AM
    With the Vikings mathematically eliminated and desperately seeking a healthy quarterback and with the Packers uncertain of the status of their concussed Pro Bowl quarterback Aaron Rodgers the Bears’ path to the playoffs seems lined with rose petals.

     
  • Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had plenty to be excited about in Monday's 45-3 victory over the Jets. Brady and the Patriots visit the Bears on Sunday.

    Brady, Patriots next test for Bears' defense Dec 7, 2010 12:00 AM
    After allowing Detroit Lions quarterback Drew Stanton to post a passer rating of 102.4 in his second NFL start, you have to wonder what New England's Tom Brady will be capable of Sunday against the Bears at Soldier Field.

     
  • Wide receiver Earl Bennett and the Bears have much to celebrate these days, and still much to play for in the final five games.

    Bears in good shape, but still work to be done Nov 30, 2010 12:00 AM
    Heading into the bye, after back-to-back home losses to a pair of mediocre NFC teams had dropped the Bears to 4-3, who would have thought five weeks later we'd be examining their playoff possibilities?

     
  • Johnny Knox leads the Bears with 672 receiving yards this season.

    Knox No. 1 in Bears' receiver-by-committee attack Nov 23, 2010 12:00 AM
    Spraying to all fields, even though it's not baseball season: &bul;For years the Bears have downplayed the idea of a No. 1 receiver, preferring a passing attack by committee with any of three or four players capable of being the leading receiver in any particular game, including tight end Greg Olsen or running back Matt Forte.

     
  • Ex-Vikings wide receiver Randy Moss

    Bears should ignore any thoughts of MossNov 2, 2010 12:00 AM
    The Bears should never, under any circumstance, consider picking up Randy Moss. Don't even think about it. He was booted out of two universities Notre Dame and Florida State and was jailed twice before ever catching a pass in college.
