I’ve never seen the Bears play a first quarter like that.
Heck, no one has ever seen a first quarter like the one the Bears laid on the Titans.
For the first time in their long, glorious history, the Bears rang up 28 points before they had...

It was not a performance that offered conclusive answers when it comes to Jay Cutler, his line and the Bears offense.
But the Bears are in no position to worry themselves with style points.
Ten days after a meltdown of more than just the offense at...

In the middle of a contentious week, Jay Cutler was saying there is criticism even when you win.
And this is that.
Cutler started badly, reached mediocrity, then sort of stayed there -- 17 of 31, 183 yards and an interception, finishing with a lousy 58....

The Bears’ passing game? Just like big-boy offenses.
The Bears’ running game? Looks like third-and-1 is no longer their version of clown college.
The Bears’ pass rush? Look at you, Israel Idonije, finally racking up sacks the way...

If you're a fantasy football fanatic then the Miami Dolphins have one of the worst receiver units in the NFL.
The production over the years hasn't been gaudy, and the names aren't sexy. The only receiver that has any sizzle is Chad Ochocinco, and he's 34...

I know that the first exhibition game doesn’t mean much to the starters because, as Tribune football columnist Matt Bowen writes, that first game is about basics. Yes. Well. Fine.
But not for me. I don’t care about footwork. I want fireworks....

Ten things to take away from the Chicago Bears' 31-3 loss to the Denver Broncos in their preseason opener:
1. No one game plans for the opening preseason game and starters don’t play into the fourth quarter in the first exhibition. But maybe nobody...

Jay Cutler sat out the Bears' first exhibition game but did not look the least bit rusty in his debut Saturday night at Soldier Field.
The quarterback was comfortable and in command of the new offense against the Redskins, setting the tone early in a 33-...

I only interviewed Brian Urlacher once last season, but it was a good one. It was Nov. 9, a Friday, two days before the Texans game. The Bears were 7-1 and winners of six straight. They’d just mollywomped the Titans in Nashville 51-20, a game in...

Dan, do you see Marc Trestman replacing Johnny Knox with another speedy receiver in the draft? I really believe that he was a major missing piece of their offense since his catastrophic injury. I just don't think Trestman will find another one in free...

Maybe it’s just me, but members of the Chicago Bears new coaching staff sound like they don’t have a clue.
Based on what they’ve said publicly, at least.
Which is virtually nothing.
Starting with new coach Marc Trestman and going...

You know what happened last weekend?
Quarterbacking happened, that’s what.
You know what else happened?
Yet another example of how far the Bears' offense is from being championship-worthy, that’s...
