  • With Cutler, Bears make right call

    With Cutler, Bears make right call
    With a knowing glance, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler made eye contact with backup Jason Campbell in the locker room at halftime of Sunday night's 13-6 loss to the Texans. "Jay just looked at me and said, 'Be ready,'" Campbell said. Do we know if a...
  • Can't any Bears quarterback run an offense?

    Can't any Bears quarterback run an offense?
    You go into a game with the chance to own a piece of the best record in the league, and you come out of it with a concussed starting quarterback. A concussed quarterback with a history of concussions, don’t forget. Oh, and a self-inflicted loss at...
  • Broadcasters eager to jump on Bears bandwagon

    Broadcasters eager to jump on Bears bandwagon
    OK, Bears fans, you asked for it. High expectations, Super Bowl predictions, national preseason acclaim. Bearszzzz! Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall, Matt Forte, Lance Briggs, Charles Tillman, Brian Urlacher … all of the playmakers are in place,...

    Exhibition finale not totally meaningless
    CLEVELAND — You might have yawned at the proceedings Thursday night at Cleveland Browns Stadium. Maybe you switched back and forth to the broadcast of the Republican National Convention. Perhaps you chose "Glee." Or played some Angry Birds on...
  • What will it take for Bears offense to take off?

    What will it take for Bears offense to take off?
    It's understandable if the hype of a potential Super Bowl matchup one week, followed by a prospective NFC championship showdown the next, seems highly relevant midway through a season. But really, it's only hype. Getting to the real NFC championship...
  • Briggs giving game his all, and appreciating it more

    Briggs giving game his all, and appreciating it more
    Brian Urlacher may play on opening day. He may not. He may run like the Urlacher of old. He may not. The uncertainty of Urlacher's situation makes the certainty of Lance Briggs' situation all the more comforting. Briggs answered the bell consistently...
  • Lean, healthy, Bears' Smith in it for long haul

    Lean, healthy, Bears' Smith in it for long haul
    Going into his ninth season with the Bears, lean and healthy Lovie Smith sure appears to have staying power. If he wins this season — which he should — Smith is likely to last at least as long as Mike Ditka as head coach of the Bears....
  • Bears in must-win, must-lose scenario

     Bears in must-win, must-lose scenario
    On a mild, but damp Christmas Eve day in 2000, our team bus rolled through the streets of New Orleans. The city that was alive the night before was quiet as we pulled up to the Louisiana Superdome. After a 6-0 start with the best offense I ever have...
  • When do we start blaming Cutler?

    When do we start blaming Cutler?
    Here’s the thing about Jay Cutler’s throw that was sort of aimed at Devin Hester during yet another miserable Cutler performance in yet another aggravating loss to the Packers: It was so bad and such a turning point that even Lovie Smith,...
  • Uh-oh: Cutler can't block out questions about blocking

    Uh-oh: Cutler can't block out questions about blocking
    Jay Cutler was speaking honestly. Maybe that’s why it was so jarring. On the first “Jay Day’’ of the regular season, Cutler stepped to the podium at Halas Hall on Wednesday and said, yeah, the Bears have all kinds of shiny new...
  • Is Urlacher's injury end of era?

    Is Urlacher's injury end of era?
    The dark cloud settling over this Bears season grew even more ominous Tuesday with news that middle linebacker Brian Urlacher likely will miss three of the team's final four games with a Grade 2 hamstring strain. It's possible Urlacher could miss the...
  • That stench? Oh, that's the Bears' best players

    That stench? Oh, that's the Bears' best players
    If the Bears are going to make the playoffs, or even win another game, it’s pretty basic: Their stars have to play like stars. I heard that idea from a hockey coach decades ago during the playoffs, except he phrased it, “Our best players...
