  • First play worst play for Bears

    First play worst play for Bears
    It's rare that a game's first play from scrimmage is the most critical, but it sure seemed that way in Minneapolis on Sunday. Many Bears had a chance to stop or at least slow Adrian Peterson on his 51-yard run. Defensive end Corey Wootton had...
  • Wright in line for promotion

    Wright in line for promotion
    Early last offseason, Bears safeties coach Gill Byrd received a text. "I feel this is going to be my year." And then, "I need you to coach me and be there for me." The sender was Major Wright. It was the first sign something would be different about...

    Salary-cap issues 1st on Bears table
    INDIANAPOLIS — For an NFL team, coming to the scouting combine can be a little like visiting an automobile showroom. Flashy, pricey things are on display that catch eyes. Many are veterans with expiring contracts. Many are players who will be...

    Mannelly in game for long haul
    The game against the Lions on Sunday could have been the last one for a Bear who has been around forever and has his name listed prominently in the team record books. But the Bears decided they wanted him back. Whether or not the Bears will take the...
  • NFC Hierarchy/Obituary with Week 9 in the books

     
    Obituaries this week: It's hard thinking of something substantial to write about every team in the NFC every week, and it's even tougher writing their obituaries. And so, I'd like to personally thank Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan, who basically......
  • NFC Hierarchy/Obituary with Week 15 in the books

     
    Obituaries this week: None. The Graveyard: Life Support: None Hierarchy: The Bears have lost 5 of their last 6 games after starting 7-1. There's an excellent chance they are going to miss the playoffs for the 5th time in 6......
  • Fine idea not a fine idea

     
    Story: Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher told the Tribune the NFL fined him $21,000 for his horse-collar tackle on running back Leon Washington during Sunday's overtime loss to the Seahawks. QB Jay Cutler was fined the other week for taunting --......
  • Jaguars give Bears defense chance to shine

    Jaguars give Bears defense chance to shine
    It doesn't look like a fair fight. The Bears, fresh off an explosive blowout victory over the Cowboys on the national stage, against the Jaguars, who've been outscored 54-17 at EverBank Field and are 1-3. I'm going to spare the "any given Sunday"...
  • Missing preseason can help or hinder

    Missing preseason can help or hinder
    Missing training camp and the preseason had different consequences for the face of the Bears and the face of the Jaguars. For Maurice Jones-Drew, who sat out in a contract dispute, missing time was a benefit. "I might be a little fresher, not taking...
  • Bears defensive coordinator isn't one to crow

    Bears defensive coordinator isn't one to crow
    When the Lions and their fans look at how dominating the Bears defense and its scheme has been, they have to think, "That should have been us." In 2006, Matt Millen hired Rod Marinelli as head coach of the Lions. Then in 2008, the Lions became the...
  • Bears try to exploit cornerback weakness

    Bears try to exploit cornerback weakness
    Considering the Bears' No. 2 wide receiver couldn't play against the Lions on Monday night, you might be surprised to know the Bears were considerably more reliant on "11" personnel, or three receiver packages, than usual. The Bears used 11 personnel...
  • Saluting the Bears defense

    Saluting the Bears defense
    I can't describe how spectacular the Bears defense was in nearly shutting out the Lions. I don't know if anybody can. But running down that unit's heroics Monday night should be stunning enough. In the first quarter, with the Lions third-and-1 at their...
