Any time the Bears want to rush the passer, fine by me.

The start of the NFL season is around the corner and you know what that means: Bears sightings. Lots of them.

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.

I can see the talent, the arm strength and the underrated athleticism Cutler shows with his ability to extend plays outside the pocket. He's physical. He's tough. And there isn't a route in the...

It was not a performance that offered conclusive answers when it comes to Jay Cutler, his line and the Bears offense.
But the Bears are in no position to worry themselves with style points.
Ten days after a meltdown of more than just the offense at...
