J’Marcus Webb has yet to play 16 NFL games. He’s the Bears’ starting left offensive tackle.
Chris Williams has played enough games for me to think he’s a bust. He’s the Bears’ starting left guard.
Roberto Garza has...

It’s hard to know which is worse: J’Marcus Webb playing left tackle during the Bears’ exhibition opener against Buffalo on Saturday night or J’Marcus Webb talking about it later.
Webb lined up at the most...

Bears interim offensive coordinator Mike Martz said Jay Cutler will play more against the Giants on Monday night than he did in last week’s exhibition opener, blocking permitting.
And hey, new NFL rule: Blocking is permitted.
Honest. True fact....

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The last time the Bears stumbled out of here in a stupor, their quarterback had a woozy noggin' and their offensive coordinator had a place in NFL history following the most stubborn play-calling imaginable.
There was no...

NEW ORLEANS — Last year, the Bears waited until their off week at midseason to have a meeting about how the offense was being run.
Is Week 3 a good time to schedule one for 2011?

Surely, the running backs coach was referencing the career-high 205-yard rushing game Matt Forte had just completed, emphatic proof that, yes, this offense can move the ball...

One can only wonder if Mike Shanahan recognized the Jay Cutler he developed into a Pro Bowl player with the Broncos by age 25, or did he just see the remains of what the Bears have ruined.
This sure isn't what anyone expected as the dysfunctional Bears'...

The Bears point out that this season’s 4-3 record matches last season’s mark at the open week. The implication is they won five in a row and seven of their last nine to win the NFC North last season and feel they can do something like that...

The Bears’ Devin Hester estimates he plays video games just about every day. He said it’s due in part to the free time he has and the fact that he feels he can’t go out in public much. His wife doesn’t mind — after all, it...

OAKLAND, Calif. — If you're looking for a positive following the first NFL start by Caleb Hanie, it wasn't a meltdown like the Bears have seen before when they've turned to reserve quarterbacks.
It wasn't Todd Collins. Not even close. It wasn't...

I love the job Mike Tice has done --- has usually done --- but the offensive line coach's blocking schemes and players are absolutely useless against 3-4 schemes.
Or if it's not the schemes, then it's the way they're taught because the linemen don't...

Dave Toub was forced to wonder how it would shake out at this time a year ago when the Bears' top six tacklers on special teams all were headed to unrestricted free agency.
He's in a similar position again as five of the top eight core players, based...
