    Bears get little right in loss to Packers
    If the Bears were looking for something to hang their hats on Sunday, the Packers locker room was full of players saying the 89-yard punt return for a touchdown by Johnny Knox was the greatest play they've ever witnessed. Too bad a holding penalty...
  • Everything comes back to the Bears

    Everything comes back to the Bears
    Football never has an offseason, and there’s always a way to make it about the Bears, whether the news comes from drugs, fashion or potential litigation. F’rinstance, Bill Parcells coming to the NFC North. That was the story from the New...
  • A vote for giving the Bears more help

    The NFL’s competition committee had an idea that the Bears should like but don’t. The committee recommended increasing offseason rosters from 80 players to 90 as a way of developing more talent. Nothing wrong with that, right? A chance to...
  • Hanie can't pull off the miracle

    Hanie can't pull off the miracle
    A season in which the Bears benefitted from playing against third-string quarterbacks couldn't be saved by their own No. 3. But Caleb Hanie's gutsy performance in relief of an injured Jay Cutler and an ineffective Todd Collins was a reason why the...

    Bears players downplay hype of 27-20 win over Cowboys
    ARLINGTON, Texas — Brian Urlacher wasn't suffering from a bout of Lovie Smith-like amnesia, he just didn't have any interest in considering when the last time the Bears had a significant victory on the road. A half-hour earlier the Bears had walked...

    Bears catch a break after Forte catches late TD pass
    Lovie Smith was defiant Sunday afternoon shortly after the Bears pulled a Houdini act in escaping with a 19-14 victory over the Lions. The coach refused to budge over why he passed on a chip-shot field goal with his team trailing by one after Matt...
  • Bears escape exhibitions unscathed

    Bears escape exhibitions unscathed
    This charade is just one reason NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell would like an 18-game regular season. The final exhibition game is an exercise based far more on how carefully a team can make the transition to the regular season in full health than it is...
  • How hopeless is it when Hanie's your best hope?

    How hopeless is it when Hanie's your best hope?
    This was one of the gimmes on the schedule. The Chiefs were one of the three remaining cupcakes that would help get the Bears to 10 wins and a likely playoff spot. Instead, this was pathetic. This was comical. Embarrassing. A joke. A disaster in so...
  • No fair letting the Packers have a real quarterback

    No fair letting the Packers have a real quarterback
    If the NFL really wanted to back up all its big talk about parity, it would’ve made Josh McCown quarterback the Packers. Sorry, but I wasn’t impressed, no matter what the final yardage was. McCown threw two interceptions when it mattered, and...
  • Forget NBC, the NHL is perfect for Comedy Central

    Welcome to the NHL Yuk-Yuk Lounge, and remember, there’s a two-drink minimum for customers --- a six-pack minimum for referees. We’ve got a great show planned, but there are always some surprises. You just never know how many Brendan...

    Time to hear from the Bears' latest McChairman
    If ever there was a time for George McCaskey to let everyone know who’s in charge of the Bears, this would seem to be it. If ever there was a time for the rookie chairman to make clear what his expectations are and how quickly he wants them met,...
