    Bears' death-spiral defense loses only guy who tackles

    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 …...

    Sighting: Bulls were on parade for New Year's Eve
    Rather than spend New Year’s Eve at a private party or on the couch watching the ball drop on TV, some celebrities braved the Chicago-in-January weather and hit the town to ring in 2014. The Bulls’ Derrick Rose, Bears’ Alshon Jeffery,...
  • Hey, look! A Bears offense!

    Hey, look! A Bears offense!
    Jay Cutler made quick, accurate decisions, Matt Forte was dangerous everywhere and Marc Trestman’s play-calling used the width and depth of the field. Like that, the Bears piled up 212 yards and three TDs in their first 20 plays. Now, can they do...

  • Instead of booing, try this

    Instead of booing, try this
    Whenever I see people booing athletes, it takes all my strength to not turn to them and yell THIS. So last week, I wrote a column stating that sports fans should stop booing their own team. To which a colleague asked: "What should the fans do when...

    OAKLAND, Calif. — The preseason does not mask the fact the Raiders will be dreadful this season. Mired in salary cap hell the Raiders look like they will be in the hunt for the No. 1 pick in the 2014 draft. If the Bears can be close to as good...

    Whole lotta love for the 1-0 Bears
    Welcome to the new age, Bears fans. The previous regime was all right; it’s not as if Lovie Smith’s 10-6 record in 2012 was a disaster. But when it’s Super Bowl or bust, you need a nuclear-powered offense or defense—or both—...

    It starts with Peppers, so when does Peppers start playing?

    Packers look like best team Bears won't tackle
    If you were watching TV on Sunday night looking to find hope for the Bears on Monday night at Lambeau field, sorry, people. The Packers' went to Minnesota and gave the Bears a TV preview that was rated "M" for "Mommy Make It Stop." Aaron Rodgers is...
