We put our Twitter followers to the test before every Bears game. Here are this week's question and answer:

The institutional failure of the Bears offense is even worse than most seem to realize.
Not only has it failed to improve in the Jay Cutler era, the team has overpaid for that failure. An offseason investment of tens of millions of dollars has done...

The Bears didn't just announce to doubters they're to be taken seriously in the NFC this season. They screamed it.
A 30-12 dismantling of the Falcons in the season opener Sunday at Soldier Field was as much an affirmation as it was a victory. They took...

Third in a series exploring the April 26-28 NFL draft. Next: Offensive tackles.

The Bears point out that this season’s 4-3 record matches last season’s mark at the open week. The implication is they won five in a row and seven of their last nine to win the NFC North last season and feel they can do something like that...

First minute of the game, and it was the Bears’ defense calling a timeout. That’s one fewer timeout the offense can waste, at least.
No, wait, remarkably, they weren’t needed.
Jay Cutler used play-action to hit Devin Hester for a 48-...

Dave Toub was forced to wonder how it would shake out at this time a year ago when the Bears' top six tacklers on special teams all were headed to unrestricted free agency.
He's in a similar position again as five of the top eight core players, based...
