It's so rare for the Bears and Packers to be playing for more than bragging rights that a magnifying glass is needed to find games approaching Sunday's importance.
Although even little games can seem big amid the lore and legend, the truth is these...

LONDON — The Bears talked about it so much you hate to wonder where they would be if they didn't reach 4-3 before their week off.
Fortunately, they don't have to consider that now because the goal coach Lovie Smith set forth after a dismal effort...

The Bears didn't just announce to doubters they're to be taken seriously in the NFC this season. They screamed it.
A 30-12 dismantling of the Falcons in the season opener Sunday at Soldier Field was as much an affirmation as it was a victory. They took...

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-...

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...

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...

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.—After three weeks of celebrating the arrival of Mike Martz, the Bears found out what happens when the offensive coordinator's scheme goes bad, very bad.
Jay Cutler was knocked out with a concussion, backup Todd Collins was...

A federal judge today agreed to release Chicago Bears receiver Sam Hurd on $100,000 cash bond, a day after he was charged with accepting a kilogram of cocaine from an undercover federal agent posing as a drug supplier.
Under an agreement with federal...

A report before Sunday's game said Mike Martz will not return next season as the Bears offensive coordinator. If a painfully bad 10-3 loss to the Chiefs at Soldier Field weighs in the final decision, perhaps he won't.
But what matters now is the Bears'...

The Bears should’ve made their fans happy with the firing of general manager Jerry Angelo on Tuesday.
He made a spectacular move in trading for Jay Cutler, then failed to surround him with the tools needed to make him the franchise quarterback that...

Agent Drew Rosenhaus has filed a formal request to seek a trade on behalf of Lance Briggs, the Bears linebacker told the Tribune.
"The Bears made their decision, now I have to make mine," Briggs said. "It's just how the business works. It's not going...

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...
