Jay Cutler was hurt. It was obvious. He was hobbling. Limping. His magically healed torn groin had to be some kind of issue.
Same goes for his hand, which was slammed on a blitz. And his ankle, which was rolled in the second quarter. Just say his entire...

Expiring contracts: Josh McCown, Roberto Garza, Eben Britton, Dante Rosario, Jordan Palmer, Taylor Boggs, Jonathan Scott.
Hot topic: Jay Cutler can't win.
That's what the pro-Cutler camp keeps shouting. Here, the Bears have a quarterback who's 39-28...

Bad and stupid is no way to go through the NFL.
However, those are good reasons the Bears have fallen to 6-6 and seemingly had their season ended after a 23-20 overtime loss to the Vikings.
The Bears always have depended upon the stupidity and...

Like a stylish mad scientist, Martellus Bennett tinkers in his laboratory.
It's away from football and in the basement of his suburban home where his creative mind flourishes. It's where the self-proclaimed "visionary architect" paints, doodles and...

If you're one of those fans who watched Monday's Bears-Packers game simply to pass the time before the release of "Call of Duty: Ghosts" on Tuesday, well, that's understandable.
However, you might not have realized Marc Trestman's team strikes a...

The decision to leave injured, inaccurate Jay Cutler in the game, a two-point conversion play that passed out of a run formation, a gift second-chance that ran out of a passing formation, going for it on fourth-and-1 in the first half of a tied game ---...

Ouch. And double ouch.
The football gods dropped the hammer on Bears Nation on Monday, as quarterback Jay Cutler is out at least four weeks with a torn groin muscle and linebacker Lance Briggs is out four to six weeks with a shoulder fracture.

You might think the Bears don’t have much of a team after what you saw in Washington.
They lost to a bad team and lost their captains on both side of the ball. Dire, if not terminal.
Bears coach Marc Trestman thinks you’re wrong.

NFL midseason reports usually are written after eight games—ya know, at midseason. But with seven games in the books and injuries piling up, the 2013 Bears have reached a crossroads. No time like the present, then, to distribute awards and look at...

Welcome to the new age, Bears fans. The previous regime was all right; it’s not as if Lovie Smith’s 10-6 record in 2012 was a disaster. But when it’s Super Bowl or bust, you need a nuclear-powered offense or defense—or both—...

I watched the Bears 2013 season opener at a friend's apartment, and while we squirmed as Cincinnati jumped out 21-10, we at least had the comfort of not being a Lions fan. There was one in the room, watching the Lions on a laptop in his own little corner,...

Marc Trestman received a lot of praise for his decision to go for it on fourth-and-1, and he should.
After a surprising 24-21 comeback win over a Bengals team intent on stealing the Lions’ crown for stupid and undisciplined play, Jay Cutler...
