Julius Peppers wasn’t on the Bears injury report, so we have to trust that nobody is lying and that Peppers is healthy.
If so, then that narrows the options to one: Peppers was just plain bad in the win over the Bengals.
It wasn’t as if he...

OK, so Julius Peppers was sick. What’s the excuse for the rest of the Bears' defensive line?
Right now, that appears to be the worst unit on the Bears. I mean, it looks like the pass rush is being coordinated by Fox.
I’ve heard that the...

Marc Trestman’s play-calling looked scared in the second half Sunday. The Bears' rookie coach looked like he was hoping and praying the clock would run out while his team still had the lead against the desperate Steelers.
This from a coach who has...

Yep, it's almost over.
No, not the Bears' season. Only the most pessimistic fan would fear the worst from a 3-0 team.
Rather, "Breaking Bad" has just one more episode remaining to incinerate our nerves before its five-season run ends Sept. 29. And...

Abracadabra, the Bears are 3-0.
If the season ended today, the Bears would be in a three-way tie with New Orleans and Seattle for home-field advantage in the NFC. Congratulations. Of course, NFL seasons don't typically end after three weeks. And it's...

We've got a 3-0 football team to celebrate, fall in love with and despair over, but before that, a word of thanks to Sports Illustrated.
Thank you for ruining the entire Blackhawks season by A) putting them on the cover and B) anointing them as repeat...

After the Bears failed to pressure Drew Brees into an interception in a conference loss at home, defensive end Julius Peppers was asked how to fix the pass rush or change things or make it all better.
Pepper said he didn’t have a lot of time to...

"I don't look around and see [backups]," Lance Briggs told reporters after last week's win over the N.Y. Giants. "I look around and see Chicago Bears out there."
That's the spirit, Lance! While that might be the greatest teamwork-related quote ever, it'...

Isn’t this where we came in with the Bears almost six months ago?
Brian Urlacher was coming back from a knee injury suffered in the final game of last season. His status and abilities were in question as he missed chunks of training camp reps....

It's a good thing Jennifer Hudson was already in the Christmas spirit Tuesday at her "A Hudson Holiday" party at the House of Blues, because the Oscar-winning actress and Grammy-winning singer will need it for the next few months.
Hudson was recently...

How do you think this year's defensive unit compares with the '85 Bears? -- Mike Litwin, Chicago
Let's not get carried away here. This is a good defense. It can't touch the '85 Bears though, which many regard as the greatest defense in modern NFL...

Julius Peppers hung out in the Gold Coast neighborhood following Sunday’s game at Soldier Field, just like he did after the Bears’ previous home game.
The Bears defensive end, who dined at Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse following his team’...
