SAN FRANCISCO — Jay Cutler picked a great game to sit out.
It wasn't such a great game for the Bears defense to sit out.

The Bears made Jason Campbell one of the highest-paid backup quarterbacks in the NFL for situations just like this.
They have to be hoping they won't need Campbell's services for an extended period after starter Jay Cutler was knocked out of Sunday...

You go into a game with the chance to own a piece of the best record in the league, and you come out of it with a concussed starting quarterback.
A concussed quarterback with a history of concussions, don’t forget.
Oh, and a self-inflicted loss at...

What more can this Bears defense do to carry the ballclub?

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...

This was one of the gimmes on the schedule. The Chiefs were one of the three remaining cupcakes that would help get the Bears to 10 wins and a likely playoff spot.
Instead, this was pathetic. This was comical. Embarrassing. A joke. A disaster in so...

This charade is just one reason NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell would like an 18-game regular season.
The final exhibition game is an exercise based far more on how carefully a team can make the transition to the regular season in full health than it is...
