The Bears have had some pretty awesome draft classes in the past 20 years. And some horrible ones.
THE BOTTOM THREE
I don't even know where to start with this draft class. Without a first-round selection, the Bears needed to strike gold in...

Because the Bears won eight of their nine NFL titles during their 50 seasons at Wrigley Field, where 22 of the 26 Bears in the Pro Football Hall of Fame played, heroes from those days abound.
George Halas. The hero of heroes. He convinced the Cubs...

I know what you’re thinking: There haven’t been enough articles about the cold weather during the polar vortex.
And that’s why I bring you this entertaining video from Tuesday’s episode of ESPN2’s “Highly...

Actors are used to hearing "break a leg!" before a performance, but those words strike terror in the heart of a professional football player.
"Don't say that! People keep saying that to me!" retired Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher joked Friday...

This is a football city, and that is because we (or most of us) still like to think we live in a rough-and-tumble town. The echo of Carl Sandburg remains strong. He called the city “alive and coarse and strong and cunning” and endowed it...

Have the Bears thought about playing Shea McClellin at linebacker? He played it in college and he isn't making an impact at end. Obviously, there is a need there and the Bears could plug someone else in who would be effective at end. Maybe he would make a...

He doesn't have the rocket arm. Or the celebrity wife. Or even a Tumblr of him "smoking."
Josh McCown keeps his distance from all that noise. The 34-year-old Texas native's happy-to-be-here approach to his NFL career has helped Chicago embrace him as...

WESTON – It’s no coincidence that Miramar middle linebacker Ryan Samuels wears No. 54.

I love weeks like these in Chicago. I call them the "at least you know where you stand" weeks.
A nice test for the Bulls on Tuesday night in Miami and a friendly reminder—in case it wasn't already a loud voice screaming from your gut—"We...

It's sad when it ends like this.
I am talking about the Bears season, but I'm also speaking of the great Bears defense.
So many years. So many wins. So many pick-sixes, forced fumbles, great players.

If there's anyone out there who wants to play defensive line for the Bears, we're taking applicants.
It's what happens with injuries, but let's get you caught up on the Bears depleted roster. Also, find the panic button and hit it.
We have Zach...
