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...

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...

They can’t stop the run. They can’t pressure with their front four. They can’t get home on the blitz. They can’t get their safeties to play safety.
The Bears’ defense looks done.
The Bears’ offense, of course, started...

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...

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,...

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...

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...

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...

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 Bears defense took one look at the new and improved Falcons’ offense, and then destroyed it.
The Bears sized up quarterback Matt Ryan and his new rookie receiver and his established star on the other side, and blew them up.
Blew up all the...

DETROIT — It takes a lot to get Lovie Smith hot and bothered and the Bears pushed just the wrong buttons Sunday afternoon at Ford Field to accomplish that.
The stoic coach you see on the sideline turned into a yeller in the locker room when he...
