If the Bears were looking for something to hang their hats on Sunday, the Packers locker room was full of players saying the 89-yard punt return for a touchdown by Johnny Knox was the greatest play they've ever witnessed.
Too bad a holding penalty...

I have an answer for Darryl Drake: Because we’re tired of being served dung and then told it’s dinner.
This is not “Jeopardy!’’ This is not about giving an answer and then getting to the question. Because Drake did not ask a...

The Bears should’ve made their fans happy with the firing of general manager Jerry Angelo on Tuesday.
He made a spectacular move in trading for Jay Cutler, then failed to surround him with the tools needed to make him the franchise quarterback that...

Not long after the Bears acquired Jay Cutler three years ago, he began lobbying the front office for a wide receiver.
Text messages were sent. Cutler wanted help. Maybe even a go-up-and-get-it guy.
Help arrived Tuesday when the team kicked off the start...

I doubt anybody describes Bears general manager Phil Emery as dull today.
This is how a new GM gets his point across clearly, by pulling off the type of trade that drops jaws and potentially changes the balance of power in the NFC. This is when you can...

Football never has an offseason, and there’s always a way to make it about the Bears, whether the news comes from drugs, fashion or potential litigation.
F’rinstance, Bill Parcells coming to the NFC North.
That was the story from the New...

DETROIT — A fan base that has had little to cheer about for the past decade came with swagger Monday night when Ford Field rocked like it hasn't before.
The Lions faithful were far rowdier than the crowd for Super Bowl XL when Steelers fans took...

Excuse me, but I’m sick of hearing hear how the Bears are a victory over Tampa Bay away from having the same record they took into the bye last season.
The subtext seems to be this: Look at the way they stumbled to start last season and still won...

It's not Tim Tebow.
It's not divine intervention.
It's stupid and bad play by the Bears.
Marion Barber was the worst offender of both stupid and bad. He wasn't alone -- the defense, the coaches, the embarrassing quarterback and receivers deserve to be...

If ever there was a time for George McCaskey to let everyone know who’s in charge of the Bears, this would seem to be it.
If ever there was a time for the rookie chairman to make clear what his expectations are and how quickly he wants them met,...

Why all the focus on getting another defensive end? I thought one of the biggest keys to Lovie Smith's defense was a stud three-technique tackle -- someone like Tommie Harris before his decline. Are the Bears satisfied with what they have in that regard?...

You may have seen Ryan Smith's article today entitled “Unlovable Losers” where he states multiple reasons for his intended “divorce” from the Chicago Cubs. As the Cubs blogger and a die-hard Cubs fan, it would be hard for me to...
