  • Phil Emery on hot seat for Bears defense

     Phil Emery on hot seat for Bears defense
    For future reference, coaching had nothing to do with the historically bad season the 2013 Bears defense produced. Not a single defensive player noticeably improved, and no identity ever emerged for a group known for poor fundamentals. But talent and...

    Emotions aside, Bears must say bye to Mel Tucker
    In an unusual appearance Sunday night on WGN-AM 720's "The Dinner Party'' hours after the Bears' season-ending loss to the Packers, general manager Phil Emery offered food for thought regarding his offseason decision-making process. "In my role, a...

     Trestman, McCown help Bears regain traction

    With Jay Cutler secure, defense becomes paramount
    For 96 minutes of football therapy Thursday at Halas Hall, Bears general manager Phil Emery and coach Marc Trestman transparently testified about their team as if they had raised their right hands and taken oaths. Emery and Trestman ranged from sounding...

     Chris Conte takes responsibility, seeks resurrection
    The Chris Conte who covers NFL receivers rather than local news chuckled uncomfortably recalling how surreal it was to see stories about the Nashville TV reporter with the same name receiving death threats on Twitter intended for the Bears safety....
  • Great? Bears need McClellin to be good

    Great? Bears need McClellin to be good
    BOURBONNAIS — When Bears defensive end Shea McClellin made the play of training camp the other day by leaping to intercept a screen pass, exaggeration that often accompanies August football brought several comparisons to another No. 99. But,...
  • Why McCaskey should love Cutler's contract

    Why McCaskey should love Cutler's contract
    A week after we learned the Bears had agreed to pay Jay Cutler as if he were a franchise quarterback instead of a guy with one playoff win, if I’m George McCaskey, I’m liking the seven-year, $126 million jackpot. I wouldn’t be happy...

    Experienced Bears defense has jump on the offense
    BOURBONNAIS — If you are keeping score at home, give the Bears defense the win on Sunday as Marc Trestman's team put on full pads for the first time in training camp. Surprised? Don't be. In fact, you should expect a defense that is led by Lance...
  • Bears must disrupt Eagles with 5-man pressure

    Bears must disrupt Eagles with 5-man pressure
    The Bears can continue to be aggressive on defense Sunday night by disguising their blitz looks and bringing pressure against the Eagles. Think of zone schemes that challenge the protection count and take away throwing lanes for quarterback Nick Foles....
  • Bad, stupid, heartless, spineless -- Bears wear it all

    Bad, stupid, heartless, spineless -- Bears wear it all
    It couldn’t have been simpler. There couldn’t have been greater motivation. The Bears took the field in Philadelphia on Sunday night knowing they could win the NFC North and gain a playoff spot if they beat the Eagles. The Lions lost...
  • Amazing healing power of Bears' non-existent run defense

    Amazing healing power of Bears' non-existent run defense
    Can the Bears stop stinking against the run? Can we get that message up to Halas Hall? Can they understand it? Forget the quarterback discussion. The Bears have a quarterback either way. But they have no clue how to stop the run. Yeah, the Bears...
