  • Mike North video: Bears’ loss signals problems Oct 20, 2014 10:20 AM
    The Bears' loss to the Miami Dolphins at home on Sunday leads to problems in the locker room between Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall, and Marc Trestman's leadership is in question.

  • Imrem: It’s a good thing Marshall spoke out Oct 20, 2014 11:58 PM
    Brandon Marshall wasn't the ideal candidate, but someone on the Bears had to stand up and shout like he cares about the team's performance.

  • Imrem: These Bears are a fine mess Oct 20, 2014 5:02 AM
    Head coach Marc Trestman said the Bears practiced well and then played poorly. Maybe they should try practicing poorly to play better. Whatever Cutler and head coach MarcTrestman see while breaking down game tape, the fact will remain that the Bears' presumed mean, mean scoring machine is supposed to outscore opponents, hasn't often enough this season and didn't come close to doing so against Miami.

  • Humble Abreu earns players’ vote as top rookie Oct 20, 2014 5:29 PM
    He led the major leagues with a .581 slugging percentage. He finished second in the American League with a .964 OPS (On-base Plus Slugging percentage) and 323 total bases, third with 36 home runs, fourth with 107 RBI and fifth with a .317 batting average. Do the math, and it’s no surprise White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu was named the Sporting News AL Rookie of the Year on Monday in a vote by players.

  • LeGere: Forte too important to ignore Oct 20, 2014 11:56 PM
    With games upcoming against the New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers, the Bears have much bigger problems than wide receiver Brandon Marshall's postgame blowup following Sunday's loss to the Miami Dolphins. Matt Forte had just two carries in the first half.

  • Bears cut Marshall some slack Oct 20, 2014 11:54 PM
    Bears coach Marc Trestman and some of Brandon Marshall's teammates downplayed the significance of the wide receiver's posgame venting after Sunday's loss to the Miami Dolphins, noting that players deal with situations differently.

  • Rose’s night big ‘positive’ for Bulls Oct 20, 2014 11:47 PM
    The Bulls lost to Cleveland 107-98 on Monday in Columbus, Ohio, in a preseason matchup of expected Eastern Conference contenders. But this game was a sight for sore eyes, as far as the Bulls were concerned, because Derrick Rose was brilliant, scoring 30 points in just 24 minutes.

  • Rozner: Bears sadly lacking identity, leadership Oct 20, 2014 11:59 PM
    Some teams win with great defense, a fabulous running game or a Hall of Fame quarterback. Others have dynamic coaching. The Bears have none of the above and completely lack an identity.

  • Blackhawks looking for more traffic going to net Oct 20, 2014 11:49 PM
    While the Blackhawks put 87 shots on net the last two games, they had only three goals to show for it. Coach Joel Quenneville knows the reason.

  • Versteeg’s return means Blackhawks lineup changes Oct 20, 2014 11:48 PM
    The Blackhawks lines they are a’ changing. With a full complement of players at his disposal for the first time all season — including Kris Versteeg — coach Joel Quenneville opted for a slightly different look at practice on Monday.

  • Hawks’ Versteeg can’t wait to get back on ice Oct 19, 2014 1:01 AM
    Kris Versteeg admitted it. For the first few days after injuring himself just before the start of the regular season, he was bummed. Actually, beyond bummed.

  • Bears still winless at home Oct 19, 2014 3:16 PM
    Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins looked more at home at Soldier Field than Jay Cutler and the Bears. Tannehill threw for 277 yards and two touchdowns in an efficient performance, leading the Dolphins to a 27-14 victory over the Bears on Sunday. Tannehill connected on his first 14 passes and was 25 of 32 overall, helping Miami bounce back from a brutal 27-24 loss to Green Bay. It looked as if the Dolphins were on their way to a big win over the Packers before Aaron Rodgers threw a 4-yard touchdown pass in the final seconds. Lamar Miller also had a 2-yard touchdown run for the Dolphins (3-3), who had lost three of four since an opening victory over New England. The Bears (3-4) remained winless in three home games and have dropped five of their last seven at Soldier Field dating back to last year. Matt Forte scored two touchdowns and Jeremiah Ratliff finished with a career-best 3 1/2 sacks. Cutler threw an interception and lost a fumble as Chicago dropped to 0-4 when he throws at least one pick. He was 21 for 34 for 190 yards after he threw for 381 yards in last Sunday’s 27-13 victory at Atlanta. The Bears trailed 14-0 before Cutler passed to a wide-open Forte for a 10-yard touchdown on their first possession of the second half. Cutler went 5 for 5 for 47 yards on the drive, including three receptions for Brandon Marshall. Miami responded with a 13-play, 81-yard drive that ended with Miller’s fourth Td rushing in the last three games. Tannehill set up the key score with a 30-yard run on fourth-and-1. Forte added a 1-yard touchdown run in the fourth, but that was it for the Bears. Cameron Wake had a strip sack and fumble recovery, and Caleb Sturgis kicked two field goals to put it away. Miami got off to an inauspicious start when Tannehill was sacked by Ratliff on its first play from scrimmage. But the Dolphins quickly made up for lost time. Tannehill threw for 176 yards in the first half, picking apart Chicago’s defense with ease. He found tight end Charles Clay for 13-yard score, then had a 10-yard TD pass to Mike Wallace in the back of the end zone. Meanwhile, the Bears looked listless and out of sorts. Linebacker Shea McClellin, back after being sidelined since Week 2 by a hand injury, slipped in coverage on Clay’s TD, and the offense was hurt by curious play calling and Cutler’s seventh interception. Cutler was charged with a fumble on a lateral to rookie Ka’Deem Carey on the Bears’ second drive, leading to a 10-yard loss. He missed badly on a pass in the second period that was intercepted by Reshad Jones, setting up Wallace’s fifth touchdown reception. Ratliff’s big game came after he had no sacks this season; his previous career best was two with Dallas. Miami had 209 yards at halftime compared to 54 for Chicago. The Dolphins also had the ball for 19:10, leading to a vigorous round of boos from the frustrated crowd as the teams headed for the locker room.

  • Rozner: Like Cubs, Royals patiently built from bottom up Oct 19, 2014 7:30 AM
    It never happens as quickly as you hope, and there’s never a guarantee the plan will work, but the Royals -- as the Cubs are doing now -- built a winner from the bottom up.

  • Images: Chicago Bears vs. Miami Dolphins Oct 19, 2014 4:27 PM

  • 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.

  • Butler a bit banged up in Bulls win Oct 19, 2014 10:56 PM
    Kirk Hinrich scored 26 points, leading the Bulls to their fourth straight preseason win, 101-96 over the Charlotte Hornets at the United Center. The bad news is Jimmy Butler suffered a sprained left thumb and figures to miss Monday's first look at the Cleveland Cavaliers in Columbus, Ohio.

  • Trestman trying to figure out what to do next Oct 19, 2014 9:33 PM
    The Bears are at a loss to explain how they have managed to win three of four road games while going winless in three games at Soldier Field this season. “I think we should be playing better at home. We should be taking advantage of our facility and our players to play at a higher level consistently,” said Bears coach Marc Trestman.

  • Hawks’ Crawford doing his best to stay sharp Oct 19, 2014 8:28 PM
    In the Blackhawks’ last two games at the United Center, goalie Corey Crawford has faced a combined 38 shots on net. Not much of a workload, and Crawford certainly isn’t complaining, but the sporadic nature of things can be quite an adjustment.

  • Bears’ offense out to lunch all day in ugly loss to Dolphins Oct 19, 2014 6:44 PM
    The Bears' offense, expected to be the strength of this year's team, was a major disappointment in Sunday's 27-14 loss to the Miami Dolphins. The defeat left the Bears at 3-4, including 0-3 at Soldier Field.
