  • Ready for the Josh McCown show?

    Ready for the Josh McCown show?
    Ouch. And double ouch. The football gods dropped the hammer on Bears Nation on Monday, as quarterback Jay Cutler is out at least four weeks with a torn groin muscle and linebacker Lance Briggs is out four to six weeks with a shoulder fracture. Which...
  • Bears' death-spiral defense loses only guy who tackles

    Bears' death-spiral defense loses only guy who tackles
    You might think the Bears don’t have much of a team after what you saw in Washington. They lost to a bad team and lost their captains on both side of the ball. Dire, if not terminal. Bears coach Marc Trestman thinks you’re wrong. You...
  • RIP, legendary Bears defense

    RIP, legendary Bears defense
    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. It had to end sometime and it has ended …...
  • Bears' patchwork defense needs running game

    Bears' patchwork defense needs running game
    I know the NFL is a passing league. I know the NFL has rigged it to be so. But still, if I were the Bears this week, I’d commit to the running game. Matt Forte can run, catch and pick up the blitz. He can and should be the centerpiece of this...
  • Get in there! Bears need all hands on deck

    Get in there! Bears need all hands on deck
    "I don't look around and see [backups]," Lance Briggs told reporters after last week's win over the N.Y. Giants. "I look around and see Chicago Bears out there." That's the spirit, Lance! While that might be the greatest teamwork-related quote ever, it'...
  • Sighting: Star-filled New Year's Eve -- and week ahead

    Sighting: Star-filled New Year's Eve -- and week ahead
    Where did the famous and semi-famous spend New Year's Eve in the Chicago area? NASCAR driver Danica Patrick dined New Year's Eve at the newly opened Baume & Brix in the River North neighborhood before heading nearby to The Grid. "Cooler Than Me"...
  • Reader Q&A: Dan Pompei's Bears mailbag

    Reader Q&A: Dan Pompei's Bears mailbag
    What will teams do now to exploit the loss of Brian Urlacher? Physically not a huge threat but ability to change formations a key loss. -- @Tquille, from Twitter I've heard a lot of talk this season about how Urlacher can't move anymore. Understand...
  • Losing Tillman wouldn't be biggest loss for Bears defense

    Losing Tillman wouldn't be biggest loss for Bears defense
    Coming off a game in which he forced an incredible four fumbles, Charles Tillman’s absence Sunday night against Houston would be a big loss -- bigger still considering he has forced seven fumbles in eight games and returned two interceptions for...
  • Bears' new era finishes better than it starts

    Bears' new era finishes better than it starts
    Sunday’s season opener was supposed to signal a new era for the Bears. A new head coach with a big offensive portfolio. A new offense built to maximize the myriad talents the Bears have amassed. Some new, important players, young and experienced....
  • Did that look like a playoff offense to you?

    Did that look like a playoff offense to you?
    What we learned in Arizona on Sunday was the Chicago Bears are back to beating stiffs and the defense is back to scoring. I don’t know what the Cardinals do for a living, but playing football isn’t it. It’s true the Bears could...
  • 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...
  • Bears alive heading into final Sunday

    Bears alive heading into final Sunday
    GLENDALE, Ariz. — They're alive. Only because they faced an offense far more disjointed than their own were the Bears able to withstand another lethargic start. Jump-started by two defensive touchdowns — their first since Week 9 —...
