  • Just when I start agreeing with Ted Phillips, he starts talking Lovie Smith

    Lovie Smith got a two-year contract extension that the Bears didn’t have to give him, but worse, the Bears don’t seem to realize that and don’t seem to realize that contract extension has been a hall pass for the coach.   At least,...
  • Bears, fans biggest losers with new kickoff rules

    Bears, fans biggest losers with new kickoff rules
    I agree with Devin Hester. This is ridiculous. The NFL voting to move kickoffs up to the 35-yard line makes more than Bears games less exciting. It sucks the drama out of the most unpredictable play of the game for every team and everybody who loves...
  • As McCaskey talks, Bears lose a weapon

    At Michael McCaskey’s final NFL owners meeting as chairman of the Bears, NFL owners voted to move up kickoffs and neuter one of the Bears’ greatest weapons. Perfect. If you ever wondered how little clout the Bears have league-wide, no matter...
  • Bears vs. Bucs in London Oct. 23

    Bears vs. Bucs in London Oct. 23
    The Bears are set to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Wembley Stadium in London Oct. 23 as part of the NFL International Series, announced the NFL. The game will air live on FOX. Kickoff is scheduled for noon central time. October's trip to London is...
  • Bears abandon run and get run out of Superdome by Saints

    Bears abandon run and get run out of Superdome by Saints
    NEW ORLEANS — Last year, the Bears waited until their off week at midseason to have a meeting about how the offense was being run. Is Week 3 a good time to schedule one for 2011? Offensive coordinator Mike Martz brought one of his pass-happy...
  • For those of you pining for last year's utterly futile Bears offense...

    For those of you pining for last year's utterly futile Bears offense...
    The Bears’ offense had one -- count it, one -- drive. It came on their second possession. After that, pffft. Fifty-one minutes of pffft. Last season kind of pffft. I thought the Bears had learned something this year. I thought they had it...
  • As if Lovie didn't have enough sideline gaffes

    As if Lovie didn't have enough sideline gaffes
    And now we come to Lovie Smith’s newest sideline brain cramp: The Bears coach was too lame to remove either Jay Cutler or Mike Martz from Sunday’s pantsing in New Orleans. I thought Smith had learned. I thought wrong. On Monday, Smith said...
  • No, wait, balance doesn't mean a bad passing game and a bad running game

    No, wait, balance doesn't mean a bad passing game and a bad running game
    Brian Urlacher created another turnover with another spectacular diving grab of an Aaron Rodgers pass. Miraculously, the Bears still had a chance. Urlacher gave the Bears possession at their 45 down 10 with 9:27 to go. The Bears might not have deserved...
  • Bears make it a runaway

    Bears make it a runaway
    Tim Spencer turned to walk into the Bears locker room and held up two fingers. Surely, the running backs coach was referencing the career-high 205-yard rushing game Matt Forte had just completed, emphatic proof that, yes, this offense can move the ball...
  • Bears depend upon the ineptitude of strangers

    Bears depend upon the ineptitude of strangers
    The Bears played a bad game. Lucky for them, they faced a worse team. The ineptitude of the Panthers was just about the only thing that kept the Bears’ season from ending. They couldn’t afford to fall to 1-3. I don’t think they could&...
  • Wait, I think the Bears just wasted another timeout

    Wait, I think the Bears just wasted another timeout
    I think I know why the Chicago Bears blow so many timeouts on offense: Jay Cutler has to get the play from the guy on the sideline, but first, the guy on the sideline has to get it from Mike Martz in the booth, but before that, Martz has to get it from...
  • Holding the Bears accountable (because they won't do it themselves)

    Remember last year when it was all about accountability at Halas Hall? It was public and loud and demanded like never before. Guys were getting cut all the time, even after wins, I believe. Then the Bears lucked their way to the NFC Championship Game...
