  • Sorry, Caleb, but if Orton shows up, he starts

    Sorry, Caleb, but if Orton shows up, he starts
    If “A’’ is Caleb Hanie and “B’’ is Kyle Orton, then I’ll take “C’’ --- none of the above. Neither should be starting for an NFL team that has Super Bowl hopes. Neither quarterback can win the...
  • 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...
  • If Martz wants Hanie, he has to go through Cutler first

    If Martz wants Hanie, he has to go through Cutler first
    Caleb Hanie was understandably respectful Wednesday. Mike Martz knows better than he does, Hanie said of the plays he is asked to execute, three of which turned into interceptions. Jay Cutler, meanwhile, was remarkably protective of the player...
  • Ugly loss an all-around failure

    Ugly loss an all-around failure
    Go ahead and pinpoint the Hail Mary touchdown pass as the difference in the Bears' 10-3 loss Sunday to the Chiefs at Soldier Field, and mathematically, nobody can argue. But the Bears weren't beaten by an answered Chiefs prayer. They were beaten by their...
  • 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'...
  • Quick someone tell Martz to Hanie-proof the Bears

    I love the job Mike Tice has done --- has usually done --- but the offensive line coach's blocking schemes and players are absolutely useless against 3-4 schemes. Or if it's not the schemes, then it's the way they're taught because the linemen don't...
  • Bears get little right in loss to Packers

    Bears get little right in loss to Packers
    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...
  • No, wait, balance doesn't mean a bad passing game and a bad running game

    No, wait, balance doesn't mean a bad passing game and a bad running game
    Brian Urlacher created another turnover with another spectacular diving grab of an Aaron Rodgers pass. Miraculously, the Bears still had a chance. Urlacher gave the Bears possession at their 45 down 10 with 9:27 to go. The Bears might not have deserved...

  • Dan Pompei's Bears mailbag

    Dan Pompei's Bears mailbag
    How badly do you think Jay Cutler is missing Greg Olsen? -- Brian Ausmus, from Twitter Given that Earl Bennett has been injured and Roy Williams has been ineffective, I think Olsen could have had an impact on the last two games. Olsen could have provided...
  • Bears depend upon the ineptitude of strangers

    Bears depend upon the ineptitude of strangers
    The Bears played a bad game. Lucky for them, they faced a worse team. The ineptitude of the Panthers was just about the only thing that kept the Bears’ season from ending. They couldn’t afford to fall to 1-3. I don’t think they could&...
