    Smith sees mostly blue sky
    PALM BEACH, Fla. — Sunshine has not been difficult to find at the oceanfront site of the NFL meetings, but Lovie Smith brought more of it Wednesday in a breakfast with the media. The Bears coach was particularly optimistic about the addition of...
  • Everything comes back to the Bears

    Everything comes back to the Bears
    Football never has an offseason, and there’s always a way to make it about the Bears, whether the news comes from drugs, fashion or potential litigation. F’rinstance, Bill Parcells coming to the NFC North. That was the story from the New...
  • Cutler stays up, but Bears' offense a downer

    Cutler stays up, but Bears' offense a downer
    On his first chance in the exhibition season, Roy Williams dropped a third-and-10 pass that would’ve picked up 16. While he gets into football shape, can he also get into catching shape? No, wait, I think one of the guys with a reputation for drops...
  • Bears offense shows some smoothness in 14-13 loss

    Bears offense shows some smoothness in 14-13 loss
    NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Be careful drawing much in the way of conclusions out of preseason play. Remember, the Bears were 0-4 a year ago and played poorly in getting to that record. But the offense clicked months ahead of the pace of a year ago and...
  • Bears topple Bucs in London

    Bears topple Bucs in London
    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...
  • Bears survive Forte fumbles for 3rd straight win

    Bears survive Forte fumbles for 3rd straight win
    PHILADELPHIA — Sloppy performances and poor communication plagued the Bears in their two previous road games. They struggled to get out of their own way in losses in New Orleans and Detroit, setbacks that put them in a hole during the first half of...
  • Cutler delivered the way a leader does

    Cutler delivered the way a leader does
    Jay Cutler wasn't particularly sharp as a passer against Philadelphia on Monday night. But Jay Cutler was particularly brilliant when it came to being a quarterback. Being a leader. Being a winner. Yeah, Cutler underthrew some deep passes. But when it...
  • Cutler breaks thumb in Bears' victory over Chargers

    Cutler breaks thumb in Bears' victory over Chargers
    The quarterbacks didn't want to make it into their duel but that's what Sunday's meeting at Soldier Field came down to — Jay Cutler and Philip Rivers squaring off in a showdown of gunslingers. After the Bears prevailed 31-20 over Cutler's former...
  • Hanie holds up in Bears' loss to Raiders

    Hanie holds up in Bears' loss to Raiders
    OAKLAND, Calif. — If you're looking for a positive following the first NFL start by Caleb Hanie, it wasn't a meltdown like the Bears have seen before when they've turned to reserve quarterbacks. It wasn't Todd Collins. Not even close. It wasn't...
  • Hanie killed the Bears, but not all hope

    Hanie killed the Bears, but not all hope
    Caleb Hanie was bad. Awful. Sometimes egregiously horrible. But then, what’d you expect from a guy who hadn’t thrown a pass all season? Hanie threw three interceptions and so many other bad passes against the Raiders. High, wide, low, you...
  • Hanie's deal: Wise up or sit down

    Hanie's deal: Wise up or sit down
    I’d love to pound Mike Martz for arrogant myopia, from that silly throwback screen in the red zone to keeping the backup quarterback out of game-plan meetings. But Caleb Hanie and at least one of his receivers were worse than the offensive...
  • Offense anemic as Bears fall to Chiefs

    Offense anemic as Bears fall to Chiefs
    A report before Sunday's game said Mike Martz will not return next season as the Bears offensive coordinator. If a painfully bad 10-3 loss to the Chiefs at Soldier Field weighs in the final decision, perhaps he won't. But what matters now is the Bears'...
