DETROIT — The Bears could spend between now and wild-card weekend counting the reasons they will be sitting at home with 10 wins.
A defensive meltdown in Week 13 against the Seahawks and a brutal loss at Minnesota the following week are good places...

Of all the former Bears players Chairman George McCaskey could have compared Jay Cutler to the other day, he chose George Halas.
Who last played in 1928. Who played end. Who never contributed to getting a head coach fired because, well, he was the...

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...

Dressed comfortably for a long Thursday night in blue jeans and a Bears jacket, team Chairman George McCaskey entered Halas Hall and promptly placed a stack of 2013 pocket schedules on the receptionist's desk.
Nothing else the Bears...

It somehow is appropriate Andrew Luck begins his career on a field opposite Jay Cutler.
The Bears quarterback can offer his Colts counterpart a bit of advice about following a legend when the teams hook up Sunday at Soldier Field. Hopefully, it will be...

The NFL’s competition committee had an idea that the Bears should like but don’t.
The committee recommended increasing offseason rosters from 80 players to 90 as a way of developing more talent. Nothing wrong with that, right? A chance to...

Of course Phil Emery and Lovie Smith denied they have been knocking knees over a fresh contract for the coach. There's no upside for either of them if they indicate otherwise.
If they're being truthful and Emery does wait until after the season for such...

Going into his ninth season with the Bears, lean and healthy Lovie Smith sure appears to have staying power.
If he wins this season — which he should — Smith is likely to last at least as long as Mike Ditka as head coach of the Bears....

Pardon me if I'm a smidge disjointed with this one. I have had no experience writing about a Bears offense with players at the skilled positions who are capable of taking a team to a Super Bowl.
And I have no memory of a Bears defense that appears to...

If Mike Tice leaves to coach the Oakland Raiders,the Bears would have all kinds of bad news.
Or, looking at it another way, the Bears would have all kinds of typical Bears news.
The Bears thought they were looking for just a passing game coordinator/...

Phil Emery got so revved up that he forgot reality.
No, wait, Emery didn’t get revved up at his introductory news conference. Emery seems incapable of getting revved up.
So, maybe Emery was just so focused on offering snappy catchphrases about...
