    No fair letting the Packers have a real quarterback
    If the NFL really wanted to back up all its big talk about parity, it would’ve made Josh McCown quarterback the Packers. Sorry, but I wasn’t impressed, no matter what the final yardage was. McCown threw two interceptions when it mattered, and...

  • Detroit Lions: Calvin Johnson, Barry Sanders make it a big night

    Hanie holds up in Bears' loss to Raiders
    OAKLAND, Calif. — If you're looking for a positive following the first NFL start by Caleb Hanie, it wasn't a meltdown like the Bears have seen before when they've turned to reserve quarterbacks. It wasn't Todd Collins. Not even close. It wasn't...
  • The lesson from Josh McHanie

    The lesson from Josh McHanie
    I’ve been waiting for a “gotcha,’’ but I guess it’s true and official: Bears coach Lovie Smith named Josh McCown to lose to the Packers on Christmas night. Smith admitted he hasn’t seen a lot from McCown, and what&...

    Who were Bears' real workhorses?
    Dave Toub was forced to wonder how it would shake out at this time a year ago when the Bears' top six tacklers on special teams all were headed to unrestricted free agency. He's in a similar position again as five of the top eight core players, based...

    Something else about the Bears' signing of Meriweather
    Word is, safety Brandon Meriweather is a Bear because Bill Belichick believes he freelances too much on the field. It also has been said that Meriweather piles up hangers-on the way he piles up interceptions, perhaps to the point that his posse has a...
  • Bears make it a runaway

    Bears make it a runaway
    Tim Spencer turned to walk into the Bears locker room and held up two fingers. Surely, the running backs coach was referencing the career-high 205-yard rushing game Matt Forte had just completed, emphatic proof that, yes, this offense can move the ball...

    Study that rates football helmets could have a lasting impact
    Stefan Duma is unlikely to join Bruce Smith, Frank Beamer and Michael Vick on Virginia Tech football's Mount Rushmore. But his contributions to the game may prove as enduring as any sack, game plan or touchdown pass. A professor at the Virginia Tech-Wake...
  • It's not that Cutler cursed Martz, it's what took him so long?

    Look, Jay Cutler wouldn’t have to use naughty words if offensive coordinator Mike Martz would simply call the game plan Cutler told him to call. Cutler didn’t deny he F-bombed Martz in Sunday night’s game, nor did he have any regrets...
  • Cutler in command in victory over Redskins

    Cutler in command in victory over Redskins
    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-...
