The Bears decided to keep their new offense mostly under wraps until the second week of the exhibition schedule.
Quarterback Jay Cutler and running back Matt Forte were held out of Thursday's opener at Soldier Field against the Broncos, perhaps to...

The Choice (and remember, death is not an option):
Lovie Smith’s recent teams in December or Lovie Smith’s recent teams against the Packers?
That’s some coaching Smith has done the last two years, huh? Coaching when it mattered, huh?...

As long as the Bears win, Jay Cutler can do what he wants.
As long as Cutler throws for 300 yards and two or three touchdowns, he can stiff any coach he likes.
That’s what I’m getting in my emails and on my Twitter account. That’s what...

You go into a game with the chance to own a piece of the best record in the league, and you come out of it with a concussed starting quarterback.
A concussed quarterback with a history of concussions, don’t forget.
Oh, and a self-inflicted loss at...

In hiring Marc Trestman to replace Lovie Smith, Phil Emery and the Chicago Bears must hope that his reputation as a quarterback guru pays off with Jay Cutler.
The soon-to-be 30-year-old quarterback – his birthday is in April – is...

For the first time since the 1985 season, the Bears landed two defensive linemen in the Pro Bowl as Julius Peppers and Henry Melton were selected as all-stars.
Peppers led the defense with 111/2 sacks, his most since joining the club in 2010, and...

General manager Phil Emery was on the job for less than two months when he accomplished something Jerry Angelo failed to do in more than a decade — acquire a legitimate No. 1 wide receiver.
The addition of Brandon Marshall in a trade with the...

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,...

Jay Cutler was speaking honestly. Maybe that’s why it was so jarring.
On the first “Jay Day’’ of the regular season, Cutler stepped to the podium at Halas Hall on Wednesday and said, yeah, the Bears have all kinds of shiny new...

If you have to ask what it will take to save Lovie Smith’s job, then haven’t you already answered the question?
And if you ask Smith what he believes he might need to change in order to keep that job, he gives you an answer that should...

The Bears' actual problem at offensive left tackle is protecting Jay Cutler.
The bigger problem might be why the choice comes down to J’Marcus Webb and Chris Williams.
Is this the best the Bears could find? Is this the Bears’ idea of...

Bears coach Lovie Smith can be a spinner of fairy tales at times.
Devin Hester is a No. 1 receiver. Remember that one?
I also recall Smith proclaiming that the Bears’ victory in Minnesota last January actually was their first win of this season,...
