CINCINNATI Controversy seems to follow NFL referee Jeff Triplette, and the Cincinnati Bengals couldn't be happier about it.
The NFL admitted earlier this week that Triplette's crew botched the ending of the Giants-Redskins game last week, and the Bengals...

The sack itself was uplifting for the Bears' embattled defensive line, but how it happened tantalized the entire organization.
Jeremiah Ratliff's fifth snap with the team was on third-and-5 Sunday against the Vikings. He lined up over the right guard'...

Alshon Jeffery nearly came down with a touchdown catch in the corner of the end zone at Soldier Field in Week 10, but in attempting to secure the catch to his body, the ball shifted as he went to the ground and a replay review nullified a score that might...

No one asked Marc Trestman why on the last play of regulation he tried a 66-yard field goal instead of a Hail Mary pass. I guess he didn't see or read about Alabama. He also wasn't here when Devin Hester returned a missed field goal by the 49ers 109 yards...

The Bears needed more Sunday.
More offense. More luck. More guys off the street to play for this depleted defense. More of anything that would help them beat Minnesota and keep them tied for first in the NFC North.
So much for that.

Too hot: Alshon Jeffery
Jeffery has 16 receptions for 197 yards in his last two games. He has sustained a high level of play throughout his second season, proving his fast start was the product of a developmental foundation on which he can build. He has...

I was really surprised in last week's mailbag when you suggested that defensive end should be one of the biggest priorities to address next year. Seriously? So, you think the Bears should stunt the growth of Shea McClellin by getting him less snaps, put a...

It may not seem like much initially, but glimpses of promise might be peeking through for the Bears' defense.
Defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff is listed as questionable for Sunday's visit with the Vikings but hopes to play. Same goes for fellow...

The Bears weren’t ready to start the game. Again.
They were undisciplined. Again.
They were mistake-prone. Again.
They couldn’t stop the run. Again.
That’s on the coach. A lot of the Bears’ inexplicably awful performance in...
