Assuming you are in a six- or eight-team league -- and not one of those screwy leagues that ends in Week 17 -- the fantasy football playoffs have arrived. If your team made the playoffs, give yourself a loud slap on the back.
(If your team did not make...

We are into the nitty-gritty of the fantasy playoffs, so let’s get down to business with some injury updates, a few waiver-wire pickups if you’re desperate, and more. If your squad needs help, shoot me a note. And feel free to leave your...

Hoping you might put a question to Phil Emery at some point. In light of his talent and athleticism, any thoughts on moving Kyle Long to the tackle position, specifically left tackle? My thinking is he is too talented for guard especially after reading...

With their eight selections in the 2014 NFL draft, the Chicago Bears chose NFC playoff legitimacy.
They began the entertaining, exhaustive three-day process with holes free-agency didn't fill and ended it with a roster complete enough to challenge the...

The Bears have done a lot of work to build the roster since the end of the regular season and in free agency. What about an extension for wide receiver Brandon Marshall who is entering the final year of his contract? Is that in the cards for Phil Emery?...

There cannot be a player on offense who is more excited about the new Chicago Bears coaching staff than Matt Forte.
Forte always has considered himself a dual threat out of the backfield and new coach Marc Trestman has a proven track record for making...

It's not Tim Tebow.
It's not divine intervention.
It's stupid and bad play by the Bears.
Marion Barber was the worst offender of both stupid and bad. He wasn't alone -- the defense, the coaches, the embarrassing quarterback and receivers deserve to be...

DENVER — Less than 15 minutes after Matt Prater's 51-yard field goal sailed through the uprights at Sports Authority Field, sending 76,487 Tim Tebow believers into hysteria, the Bears sat stunned in their locker room.
Talk was at a whisper level...

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...

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-...

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...
