  • 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...
  • 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...
  • Cutler sees what Lovie misses

    Cutler sees what Lovie misses
    Jay Cutler apparently is fed up with being run down. And thrown down. And beaten down and beaten up. And if the Bears quarterback had to pants his head coach to make things better, then fine, Cutler will offer cold-eyed honesty that ought to embarrass...
  • The blog for people who don't have all day to read blogs

    The blog for people who don't have all day to read blogs
    Lovie Smith has to say he likes his group of offensive linemen. Just like we have to slam our palms to our foreheads. Lovie Smith also has to say he’s “comfortable’’ with a left tackle who gave up the most sacks and committed...
  • 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...
  • Bears' season all but over

    Bears' season all but over
    A week after being Tebowed, the Bears managed to get T-Jacked with their fragile season hanging in the balance. Minus quarterback Jay Cutler and running back Matt Forte, the Bears admitted their defense needed to step up and carry them. Brian Urlacher...
  • 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...
  • Bears let Broncos escape with OT victory

    Bears let Broncos escape with OT victory
    DENVER — Less than 15 minutes after Matt Prater's 51-yard field goal sailed through the uprights at Sports Authority Field, sending 76,487 Tim Tebow believers into hysteria, the Bears sat stunned in their locker room. Talk was at a whisper level...
  • New Bears offensive line, new results

    New Bears offensive line, new results
    First minute of the game, and it was the Bears’ defense calling a timeout. That’s one fewer timeout the offense can waste, at least. No, wait, remarkably, they weren’t needed. Jay Cutler used play-action to hit Devin Hester for a 48-...
  • Bears win 20-17 on Gould field goal in waning seconds

    Bears win 20-17 on Gould field goal in waning seconds
    With a little help from some fans in the south end zone, Devin Hester made a Soldier Field leap early in the fourth quarter. You can understand his excitement. It had been 30 games since his last punt return for a score, a drought that had led some to...

    Bears coach Lovie Smith backs Obama re-election
    Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith is endorsing President Barack Obama as part of an outreach effort by the re-election campaign to encourage continued support from the African-American community. In a new web video released today by Obama’s...
