  • Amazing healing power of Bears' non-existent run defense

    Amazing healing power of Bears' non-existent run defense
    Can the Bears stop stinking against the run? Can we get that message up to Halas Hall? Can they understand it? Forget the quarterback discussion. The Bears have a quarterback either way. But they have no clue how to stop the run. Yeah, the Bears...

    Bears unable to dig out of early hole in loss to Vikings
    MINNEAPOLIS — Lovie Smith stood in the middle of the cramped visitors locker room Sunday afternoon with his hands on his hips waiting for the rest of his team to assemble. A week after melting down in the final minutes and overtime against the...
  • Is Tillman changing the position?

    Is Tillman changing the position?
    Is Charles Tillman changing the cornerback position? That has been the talk this season, even though Tillman has been forcing fumbles with his uncanny ball punch since he entered the league in 2003. In 148 games over his 9 1/2 seasons, Tillman has...
  • Bears lose 6th straight against Packers, who clinch NFC North

    Bears lose 6th straight against Packers, who clinch NFC North
    Minutes after Brandon Marshall said everyone involved with the Bears offense should be held accountable, he darted out of the Soldier Field locker room, leaving behind his sad-looking Charlie Brown Christmas tree. There will be no NFC North crown...

    Reader Q&A: Dan Pompei's Bears mailbag
    Can the Bears defense stop San Fran if they play each other in the playoffs? -- @JohnMcLallen, from Twitter I would be surprised if the Bears defense does not perform significantly better against the 49ers if the teams meet again. There were a number...
  • That stench? Oh, that's the Bears' best players

    That stench? Oh, that's the Bears' best players
    If the Bears are going to make the playoffs, or even win another game, it’s pretty basic: Their stars have to play like stars. I heard that idea from a hockey coach decades ago during the playoffs, except he phrased it, “Our best players...

    Reader Q&A: Bears mailbag
    Any chance the Bears go after Plaxico Burress? -- @chifan4life, from Twitter There is a chance, but it's slightly better than an ice cube's chance in Death Valley. The Bears have had multiple opportunities to sign Burress going back to 2005, when he left...
  • 49ers pound Bears

    49ers pound Bears
    SAN FRANCISCO — It's too bad Colin Kaepernick wasn't available when Phil Emery set out to find a backup quarterback. The first-year general manager had to strike quickly to find an experienced No. 2. The Bears invested big money in Jason Campbell,...
  • The Bears like you've never seen them

    The Bears like you've never seen them
    I’ve never seen the Bears play a first quarter like that. Heck, no one has ever seen a first quarter like the one the Bears laid on the Titans. For the first time in their long, glorious history, the Bears rang up 28 points before they had...
  • Cutler in command in victory over Redskins

    Cutler in command in victory over Redskins
    Jay Cutler sat out the Bears' first exhibition game but did not look the least bit rusty in his debut Saturday night at Soldier Field. The quarterback was comfortable and in command of the new offense against the Redskins, setting the tone early in a 33-...
  • So much good stuff, and then there are the Bears safeties

    So much good stuff, and then there are the Bears safeties
    The Bears’ passing game? Just like big-boy offenses. The Bears’ running game? Looks like third-and-1 is no longer their version of clown college. The Bears’ pass rush? Look at you, Israel Idonije, finally racking up sacks the way...
  • Bears pay a price for win over Vikings

    Bears pay a price for win over Vikings
    After the season, the Bears plan to begin expanding Halas Hall, but they might need to build out the training room now. In what resembled a last-man-standing battle, they beat the rival Vikings 28-10 on Sunday at Soldier Field, but the badly needed...
