Minutes after chasing Bears receivers Sunday, Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan covered the most compelling angle from his team's 23-6 loss as accurately as anybody carrying a notepad or pen.
Asked in the Rams locker room what he thought of Bears...

The Bears didn't need Jay Cutler to be on his game to win Sunday, and it's a good thing.

I would like to know your thoughts on the Bears' first round pick (No. 19) in this year's draft. As I see it there will be plenty of quality No. 1 receivers in free agency, large and small. Wouldn't it be wiser for them to opt for a DE the likes of Nick...

Dave Toub was forced to wonder how it would shake out at this time a year ago when the Bears' top six tacklers on special teams all were headed to unrestricted free agency.

Stephen Paea is injured. Of course he is. It’s what he does, occasionally finding a spasm of health and talent to rush the passer.
Paea had a bad knee last season, then underwent arthroscopic surgery and looked like a player during the early...

The Bears’ passing game? Just like big-boy offenses.
The Bears’ running game? Looks like third-and-1 is no longer their version of clown college.

The Vikings and quarterback Christian Ponder can use play action Sunday to target the middle of the Bears defense without Brian Urlacher on the field. Think of vertical concepts in the red zone that put stress on Nick Roach as he moves inside to middle...

This might not be a full-blown disaster, but you can see it from here.

As shaken Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice lay flat on his back in the end zone after scoring the winning touchdown Sunday in Seattle's 23-17 overtime victory over the Bears, fans gave him a warped welcome to the southeast corner of Soldier Field....
