Not to diminish Josh McCown’s terrific game Monday night, but the Cowboys came in with the worst defense in the league.
Worse even than the Bears’.
Sure, McCown showed poise in finding open receivers downfield and even showed some shake in...

Conventional wisdom said throw the ball away and take the field goal.
So, naturally, Bears quarterback Josh McCown took his chances. December in the NFL is no time for the timid, and the Bears arrived Monday night at Soldier Field intent on seizing...

The NFL broke a leaguewide scoring record last week, as all 32 teams combined for 859 points. And the gaudiest quarterback stat line wasn't put up by Peyton Manning, Tom Brady or Drew Brees.
34-year-old Josh McCown, the man with five other NFL teams...

Before leaving Soldier Field shortly after midnight Monday, a Bears employee with a wry sense of humor — and the moment — cracked wise in a way that summed up the Josh McCown mania sweeping the city.
"Since we said No. 89 is the last...

Nobody in the Bears organization offered anything but high acclaim for backup quarterback Josh McCown the past month as he became Chicago's darling and one of the NFL's best stories.

Believe it or not, the biggest decision Marc Trestman ever made that played out in Cleveland had nothing to do with which Bears quarterback to start Sunday against the Browns.
Back in 1988, Trestman was the Browns quarterback coach and was out...

Dear Bears offense, your coach doesn’t trust you.
We already knew he didn’t trust his ridiculously bad defense, but he doesn’t trust you. He showed that in overtime in Minnesota on Sunday. No matter that you had just blasted down the...

Jeff George felt Jay Cutler's pain.
As Cutler limped off FedEx Field three weeks ago in Landover, Md., with a torn left groin muscle, George was watching on television at home in Indianapolis and reliving one of the worst days of his 12-year NFL career....

Redskins cheap-shot artist Brandon Meriweather had his two-game suspension reduced to one game after an appeal.
What, Meriweather was dirty on only one of those personal fouls against the Bears?
There’s your NFL player safety garbage in all...

Slow down, Chicago.
We went from worrying about Jay Cutler's injury to wondering whether the quarterback had played his last game as a Bear faster than it took Cutler to limp off the field Sunday in Landover, Md. Logically, it was the kind of quantum...

I can’t think of one good reason for Jay Cutler to come back as early as Sunday.
Unless he can tackle and play safety.
Cutler’s torn groin reportedly was magically healing to the point that he would play against the Lions only two weeks...
