Phil Emery put a couple special teams coaches on his list of coaching candidates, and that’s only the two that we know about. The Bears general manager might have more names on his LinkedIn account, and it can’t be just to comply with the...

Ndamukong Suh had the knockdown of the night when he rocked Jay Cutler on a sack in the second quarter.
But the Bears recovered to win the decision Monday night.
The hope is the quarterback isn't too sore after he was diagnosed with bruised ribs...

Now we know what the NFL’s embarrassment level is: Getting pantsed on national television.
Getting pantsed twice, in fact.
First, Roger Goodell and the village idiots who own teams watched two-bit officials blow the original call against Green Bay...

Jay Cutler's contract needs to be taken care of soon, and rumors of Brian Urlacher's demise seem to have been exaggerated. How much cap space do the Bears have left for this year, and do you think one or more of these guys might be signed before the end...

Isn’t this where we came in with the Bears almost six months ago?
Brian Urlacher was coming back from a knee injury suffered in the final game of last season. His status and abilities were in question as he missed chunks of training camp reps....

The Bears' actual problem at offensive left tackle is protecting Jay Cutler.
The bigger problem might be why the choice comes down to J’Marcus Webb and Chris Williams.
Is this the best the Bears could find? Is this the Bears’ idea of...

I can't describe how spectacular the Bears defense was in nearly shutting out the Lions. I don't know if anybody can. But running down that unit's heroics Monday night should be stunning enough.
In the first quarter, with the Lions third-and-1 at their...

Jay Cutler was the last of three quarterbacks to get knocked out of a game because of a concussion Sunday, which brings trouble and questions.
How much are Cutler’s capacities diminished? How much is his upcoming contract value diminished?

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...

Now comes NFL free agency, or as it’s known at Halas Hall, “Where my offensive tackle?’’
Even before Tuesday’s 3 p.m. kickoff to free agency, the Bears were one of several teams mentioned in the Jake Long sweepstakes....

The epitaph for Lovie Smith's tenure as head coach of the Bears could read, "He couldn't fix the offense."
For all the good things Smith did in his nine years in Chicago, his undoing was his inability to take care of the side of the ball in which he...

My issue isn’t that Bears General Manager Phil Emery has fewer draft picks than he has positional needs. Every GM has fewer picks than he has needs. Just ask them.
But for those of you keeping score at home, Tribune football guru Dan Pompei did...
