    When do we start blaming Cutler?
    Here’s the thing about Jay Cutler’s throw that was sort of aimed at Devin Hester during yet another miserable Cutler performance in yet another aggravating loss to the Packers: It was so bad and such a turning point that even Lovie Smith,...

    Uh-oh: Cutler can't block out questions about blocking

  • You can fire Lovie right now

    You can fire Lovie right now
    Lovie Smith has to go. Now. If I'm Phil Emery, I wouldn't have let him on the plane home after that 21-14 disaster in Minnesota. Smith’s team wasn't ready to start a must-win game. Smith's defense wasn’t ready to start a must-win game....

    Naming names: Changing the loser ways of Bears coaches
    In trying to pare down the list of coaches who should replace Lovie Smith, I have two top choices, and neither is Bill Cowher. It’s not that I don’t like or respect Cowher, it’s that I’m looking for the Bears to make a...
  • Trestman's big problem: Cutler isn't the only big problem

    Trestman's big problem: Cutler isn't the only big problem
    Is Marc Trestman the right guy to coach the Bears? Who knows? I mean, the Bears still don’t know if Emery is the right guy to be general manager, especially after the Bears retarded Emery’s plan by forcing him to keep Lovie Smith as coach....

    The grudge report: Benson drops the ball again

  • Losing Tillman wouldn't be biggest loss for Bears defense

    Losing Tillman wouldn't be biggest loss for Bears defense
    Coming off a game in which he forced an incredible four fumbles, Charles Tillman’s absence Sunday night against Houston would be a big loss -- bigger still considering he has forced seven fumbles in eight games and returned two interceptions for...

    Rosenbloom: Bears must aggressively pursue Holmgren
