  • How to fix the Bears defense

    How to fix the Bears defense
    Welp, the Bears paid Jay Cutler. Paid him like they landed on Boardwalk with three hotels and a Risk ten-army on top. (You make some rules changes to get through Chicago winters.) And whether or not you agree they overpaid for No. 6, all Bears fans can...

    Lance Briggs can't work miracles for Bears
    Presumably, Bears players remain undivided in their support of linebacker Lance Briggs returning to start Sunday night against the Eagles. There will be no whispers, controversy or anonymous sources this week. Everybody in Chicago agrees the Bears...

    Bears must disrupt Eagles with 5-man pressure
    The Bears can continue to be aggressive on defense Sunday night by disguising their blitz looks and bringing pressure against the Eagles. Think of zone schemes that challenge the protection count and take away throwing lanes for quarterback Nick Foles....
  • Bears' defense saves dumbest for last

    Bears' defense saves dumbest for last
