  • Bears Bites: Another laugher on national TV Dec 15, 2014 10:43 PM
    No discipline. No urgency. No organization. No. Good. Mike Spellman's Bears Bites recap another tough night at Soldier Field.

     
  • Next Bears coach might as well be a cartoon character Dec 12, 2014 5:08 PM
    After the bold moves made this week by the White Sox and Cubs, the Bears are officially now the lone residents of Chicago’s Island of Misfit Franchises.

     
  • Lots to love around town ... except bumbling Bears Dec 7, 2014 1:27 AM
    Optimist Mike Spellman says there's a lot good going on in the Chicago sports world as long as you're willing to overlook the badness the is the Bears.

     
  • Bears Bites: Happy Friday, you’ve been Bears’d! Dec 5, 2014 5:30 AM
    Yet another Black Friday for the Bears and us fans. Sigh. And this one doesn’t even have the decency to feature outrageous savings on plasma TVs!

     
  • Spellman’s Scorecard: Always room for more morsels Nov 28, 2014 5:30 AM
    Some more sports morsels to digest between leftovers and shop stops including bits on teh Bears, Cubs, Sox, Hawks and Bulls.

     
  • Bears Bites: Lovie’s lost that winnin’ feelin’ Nov 23, 2014 8:53 PM
    Yeah, the defense played well again — Stephen Paea, hello! — and the offense came to life in the second half, but for crying out loud it was Tampa Bay. And last week it was Minnesota. Bad and bad.

     
  • Spellman Scorecard: Bears don’t know how good they have it Nov 20, 2014 8:32 PM
    You’d think Bears players would want to play as hard as they possibly can for Marc Trestman because I’m pretty sure they don’t know how good they have it right now.

     
  • Spellman Bites: Yeah, Bears won the game, but ... Nov 16, 2014 8:27 PM
    Yeah they finally won at home. Yeah they beat a (weak) division foe. Yeah the defense didn’t give up 50 points.But in the big picture, the win doesn’t mean a thing except a lower spot in the draft.

     
  • These managers and coaches can carve up opponents Nov 7, 2014 12:17 PM
    If there were separate Mount Rushmores for active managers/coaches in each of the four major sports leagues, I think it’s fair to say that Chicago right now would be represented on three of them by Tom Thibodeau, Joel Quenneville and Joe Maddon.

     
  • Spellman’s Scorecard: Maddon hiring will be a real treat Oct 30, 2014 9:28 PM
    The main reason I’m excited about the anticipated arrival of Joe Maddon is that he’s universally respected. It’s been a long time since we’ve had a guy like that on the North Side. A real long time.

     
  • Bears Bites: Raise the white flag Oct 26, 2014 6:25 PM
    Five of the Bears’ last seven games are at home. That could mean an awful lot of empty seats at Soldier Field. Not only do the Bears get shellacked by the Pats, now they have the bye week to soak it all in … and then get to travel to Green Bay the following week. Good times.

     
  • Not much ‘zazz’ at Wrigley since McDonough left Oct 24, 2014 8:17 AM
    Doesn’t it seem like there’s been something missing around Wrigley Field for quite a while? And I’m not talking wins. Or even the bleachers.

     
  • Bears Bites: Feels like the season’s over Oct 19, 2014 8:39 PM
    Home is where the heartache is for the Bears, whose season isn't over — but it sure feels that way after just seven games, doesn't it? Mike Spellman takes a look at Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

     
  • Pieces all in place for Hawks practice facility near UC Oct 9, 2014 9:33 PM
    A long 3-pointer from the Bulls new practice digs sits a lovely parking lot (which I adore for its convenience), but which I’m thinking will eventually become home to a brand-new, sparkly Blackhawks practice facility. And it should.

     
  • Bears Bites: Not many reasons to smile Sep 28, 2014 4:12 PM
    After starting out the season 1-2, Rodgers told freaked-out Packers fans to chillax. If Jay Cutler tried to do the same thing this week after a 2-2 start, how do you think Bears Nation would respond? Think we all know the answer.

     
  • Konerko’s big day deserves a Sox sellout Sep 26, 2014 6:01 AM
    Here's hoping Paul Konerko gets the type of send-off he deserves. His big day, the Bears-Packers and the Ryder Cup make for quite the weekend.

     
  • Bears Bites: Half the defense hurt but still an impressive win Sep 23, 2014 5:53 AM
    Playing without about half your defense. On the road again, this time on the opposite coast and in prime time. To slog out this kind of win? In a word: Impressive.

     
  • Could Niners’ lavish pregame festivities give Bears an edge? Sep 12, 2014 5:30 AM
    Well, it seems like the consensus final score for Sunday night’s game is somewhere in the vicinity of 49ers 38, Bears 13. Not so sure about that.

     
  • Spellman’s Scorecard: My math says 10-6 for Bears Sep 4, 2014 10:18 PM
    If my math doesn't fail me, and it hasn't in more than three days, the Bears will go 10-6 and be playoff-bound.

     
  • Mercifully, NFL preseason comes to an end Aug 29, 2014 9:09 AM
    Even though it was a meaningless preseason game, we still have to talk about it - right? I guess, but we'll keep it short and sweet.
