    Turns out, Bears just who we thought they were Dec 29, 2013 12:00 AM
    A heart-breaking loss to Green Bay not only summed up the Bears’ season, but it was a fitting end to a perfectly mediocre season that figured to be much better on offense and much worse on defense.

     
  •  Like it or not, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will be around for a while because coach Marc Trestman decided early on that Cutler is a player with whom he can win.

    Noise reaches all-time loud for Cutler, Bears Dec 29, 2013 12:00 AM
    While so many of the original Jay Cutler cheerleaders have abandoned the anointed and chosen instead a career backup who was out of the league two years ago, Marc Trestman knows QBs better than just about anyone in the game, and he understands this is about winning, not emotion.

     
  •  New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi is a man of faith and commitment, and he gives all credit for that to his parents.

    For Girardi, now every day is Christmas Dec 24, 2013 12:00 AM
    Joe Girardi wasn’t a born leader, destined to win three World Series rings as a player and another as a manager. He was raised to be one by parents who believed in family, work ethic, love and God, parents that Girardi misses dearly.

     
  •  Bears quarterback Jay Cutler fumbles the ball as he is hit by the Eagles’ Mychal Kendricks during the second half Sunday night.

    NFC North does Bears big favor Dec 22, 2013 12:00 AM
    Amid the misery, there was good news for the Bears Sunday. The rest of the division lost and the Bears are still in a position to win the NFC North with a victory over the Packers.

     
  •  Sunday night’s prime-time matchup at Philadelphia will give Bears quarterback Jay Cutler to show he can rise above “the noise” that often surrounds the team.

    Bears’ Cutler, Trestman a fascinating study Dec 21, 2013 12:00 AM
    The Bears have talked a lot about overcoming the noise they heard before the Cleveland game. Now, they’ll have to deal with prosperity, expectations and playoff ramifications in Philadelphia.

     
  •  Bears rookie guard Kyle Long is learning every day just how things can change in an instant in the NFL.

    Bears rookie Long getting an education Dec 17, 2013 12:00 AM
    Rookie Kyle Long thought he knew what “any given Sunday’’ meant before he played a down in the NFL, but he’s getting quite the education in what has become a minute-to-minute league.

     
  •  Bears coach Marc Trestman’s off-season plan to have players learn more about each other seems to be working, especially for quarterback Jay Cutler.

    Trestman’s off-season plan working wonders for Cutler Dec 16, 2013 12:00 AM
    It sounds as if Jay Cutler is starting to get it, and maybe even growing up a bit in the process. How much it matters, or how long it lasts, remains to be seen, but being a better and happier teammate can’t hurt the Bears.

     
  • Bears quarterback Jay Cutler celebrates a touchdown by Bears running back Michael Bush in the fourth quarter of an NFL football game against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, Dec. 15, 2013, in Cleveland. Chicago won 38-31.

    Cutler rewards Trestman, Bears with win Dec 15, 2013 12:00 AM
    Many considered it a dangerous move, going back to Jay Cutler after Josh McCown had played so well, but perhaps Marc Trestman knew enough to pocket his winnings and that the real risk was in trying to play one more hand with McCown. In the end, it worked out for the Bears Sunday.

     
  • Bears coach Marc Trestman has made it clear that Jay Cutler is his man at quarterback.

    Trestman has Super belief in CutlerDec 14, 2013 12:00 AM
    Give him a chance and Marc Trestman will make it very clear that his quarterback was Jay Cutler, is Jay Cutler and will be Jay Cutler. It would surprising if GM Phil Emery couldn’t get a deal done with Cutler, who wants to stay and only needs to be reasonable to make it happen.

     
  •  Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch will be in New York on Saturday for the Heisman Trophy ceremony.

    Heisman trip fitting tribute to wide-eyed Lynch Dec 10, 2013 12:00 AM
    For NIU and Jordan Lynch, an invite to New York as a Heisman finalist seems a fitting tribute to one of the best players in college football.

     
  •  Bears coach Marc Trestman, who has worked wonders with backup quarterback Josh McCown, walks on the sidelines during the second half of Monday night’s victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

    On Ditka Day, Bears’ Trestman proves a point Dec 9, 2013 12:00 AM
    While Marc Trestman has made great progress turning Jay Cutler into a consistent NFL quarterback, the more amazing feat is what Trestman has done with Josh McCown, a career backup who was coaching high school two years ago.

     
  •  Greg Maddux might not say he think it’s a slam-dunk that he will be an overwhelming first-ballot Hall of Famer, but most everybody else sure says so.

    Will Maddux approach Seaver for highest Hall vote? Dec 8, 2013 12:00 AM
    Tom Seaver has the highest percentage of votes ever for the Baseball Hall of Fame at 98.84. If there were any justice, Greg Maddux would come close if not eclipse that number when it’s announced in early January that he’s been elected.

     
  • Northern Illinois wide receiver Juwan Brescacin (11) reaches for a 14-yard reception for a touchdown during the first quarter of the Mid-American Conference championship game in Detroit on Friday. NIU lost to Bowling Green 47-27.

    Thanks NIU for a remarkable runDec 7, 2013 12:00 AM
    Never did I think I'd see NIU go on a 24-3 run and reach the Orange Bowl, while becoming relevant on the national college football stage. Not in my lifetime. Thanks, NIU, for the memories.

     
  •  Yes, this is a rebuilding year for the 6-6 Bears, who just might be fine next season with quarterback Jay Cutler on the field instead of the sideline.

    How Bears got to 6-6 drives panic Dec 2, 2013 12:00 AM
    Had they won three of the last four to get to 6-6, Bears fans would be excited about 2014, but because they’ve trended down, the sky seems to be falling. In fact, it is not.

     
  •  Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, after almost single-handedly lifting the Bears to victory with a pair of highlight-reel touchdown catches, can do little but look on from the sideline during Sunday’s overtime.

    Bears’ playoff hopes on life support after loss Dec 1, 2013 12:00 AM
    The Bears would have to win out against Dallas, Cleveland, Philadelphia and Green Bay to win the division or sneak into the wild card -- and even then they would need help. That hardly seems impossible given the quality of opponent, but the Bears also couldn’t finish off a Minnesota team that was 2-8-1 coming in and ranked 30th in defense.

     
  •  What happened to Bears coach Marc Trestman after last week’s loss at St. Louis? Up until then, the first-year coach was doing well at tempering expectations.

    Bears are who we thought they were Nov 30, 2013 12:00 AM
    Hysterics aside in the wake of the Rams defeat, there’s not a lot shocking about the Bears, who are actually fortunate to be 6-5. Marc Trestman would be well served to remember that and give voice to it, as he did early in the season.

     
  •  After stellar efforts against Ball State and Toledo, Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch still just might get that invite to New York for the Heisman Trophy ceremony.

    NIU busts through as Lynch’s stock rises Nov 25, 2013 12:00 AM
    A surprising jump in the BCS standings not only boosted NIU’s chances of busting through again, but it also means Jordan Lynch has a better shot at a Heisman invite.

     
  • St. Louis Rams defensive end Robert Quinn beats Chicago Bears Jermon Bushrod for a sack on Bears quarterback Josh McCown and Quinn forces a fumble during the second half of an NFL football game on Sunday, Nov. 24, 2013, in St. Louis.

    Bears offer no defense of loss to RamsNov 24, 2013 12:00 AM
    It would be much easier to list the things that went well for the Bears Sunday, than all that went wrong, but nothing was worse than their NFL-worst run defense.

     
  •  In this photo taken on Friday, Nov. 22, 2013, Bulls point guard Derrick Rose (1) leaves the Moda Center on crutches after he was injured against the Portland Trail Blazers in Portland, Ore. Rose tore meniscus in his right knee and is out indefinitely.

    Easy to wonder now if Rose, Bulls will ever be same Nov 23, 2013 12:00 AM
    During the 16 hours it took to get the news on Derrick Rose, many Bulls fans had come to the conclusion that the window for this group had slammed shut, and it was time to think about what was next. The first thing I thought of was how rough this must be for Rose, and of his unfulfilled promise.

     
  • IHSA crackdown has coaches, refs worried Nov 19, 2013 12:00 AM
    Illinois high school basketball coaches, players and officials are all being watched closely by the IHSA after an incident in the Class 2A championship game last March. The overreaction and crackdown on rules has nearly everyone involved on edge.
