    Hanie holds up in Bears' loss to Raiders
    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...
  • Quick someone tell Martz to Hanie-proof the Bears

    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...

    Bears eliminated from playoffs with loss to Packers
    GREEN BAY — It wasn't too long ago, back when the Bears were trying to make a go of it with Rex Grossman, that a high-ranking team official said just wait, the balance of power in the NFC North would shift once Brett Favre retired. Well, the future...
  • Who were Bears' real workhorses?

    Who were Bears' real workhorses?
    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...
  • Why Tice sounds crazy

    Why Tice sounds crazy
    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...
  • Wait, J'Marcus Webb said what?

    Wait, J'Marcus Webb said what?
    First-and-long: 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...
  • Anytime Martz wants to help Bears blockers get better, fine by me

    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....

    Bears' offensive line does OK in loss to Giants
    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...

    Bears abandon run and get run out of Superdome by Saints
    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? Offensive coordinator Mike Martz brought one of his pass-happy...
  • Bears make it a runaway

    Bears make it a runaway
    Tim Spencer turned to walk into the Bears locker room and held up two fingers. 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...
  • Just when the Bears looked stable along the offensive line . . .

    Just when the Bears looked stable along the offensive line . . .
    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...

    Biggs: 10 thoughts on Bears' win over Giants
    Ten thoughts on the Chicago Bears after their 20-17 exhibition victory Friday night over the New York Giants in East Rutherford, N.J. 1. Lovie Smith always has said that it's hard to make final roster cuts, with plenty of hard decisions in the process....
