  • Bears defense is failing, and that's on Lovie

    Bears defense is failing, and that's on Lovie
    There’s a lot of vitriol aimed at the Bears offense after Lovie Smith’s team embarrassed itself against a bad Minnesota bunch. I get it. Mike Tice’s offense ranks worse than Mike Martz’s, and how stupid is that? Heck, the offense...
  • Tice keeps mood light

     Tice keeps mood light
    The standard job description for an NFL offensive coordinator does not include: "Must possess self-deprecating humor, unfailing flexibility and honest self-assessment." Yet those qualities seem evident in the Bears workplace for Mike Tice as he modulates...
  • Bears' Cutler showing leadership

    Bears' Cutler showing leadership
    When the quarterback talks in the NFL, the rest of the locker room should listen up. Like it or not, they are natural leaders in the pro game because of the position. And when they raise the bar, as Jay Cutler did with his offensive line earlier this...
  • Bears want to go back to future with Cutler

    Bears want to go back to future with Cutler
    All that was missing was a Shanahan and a view of the Rocky Mountains. Short of raising the Halas Hall practice field to a higher altitude, the Bears have done virtually everything possible to recreate the Denver experience for quarterback Jay Cutler....
  • Tice's Bears offense likely to resemble 2002-05 Vikings

    Tice's Bears offense likely to resemble 2002-05 Vikings
    If you want to know what Mike Tice's Bears offense will look like in the fall, it isn't a crystal ball you need. It's a time machine. Set at 2003 or so. From 2002 to 2005, Tice was head coach of the Vikings. He didn't coordinate the offense or call...
  • Bears' vanishing act

     Bears' vanishing act
    Though nobody requested one, coach Lovie Smith said he wasn't about to offer an apology after his Bears rallied to stave off the Panthers for their fifth straight victory. I'm wondering if the coach is listening to his team's critics more than he ever...
  • Tice needs to spruce up his act

    Tice needs to spruce up his act
    If Mike Tice went home last Sunday night looking for consolation after a game-winning two-minute drive saved the day for his sleep-inducing offense in a victory over the Panthers, he didn't find it from his wife. "Like Diane said, 'What did you do in...
  • Carimi key to keeping Cutler upright

    Carimi key to keeping Cutler upright
    Contrary to prevailing thought, the Bears offensive tackle who represents the key to protecting Jay Cutler this season does not write poetry. He tells story problems. "We had an all-out blitz,'' Gabe Carimi recalled Monday of a play against the...
  • NFL ready for another blockbuster year on TV

    NFL ready for another blockbuster year on TV
    The NFL is back and you can hear cash registers ringing throughout TV land. That's because the NFL means business. Big business. After a record-breaking season for viewership, culminating with Super Bowl XLVI being the most-watched program in the...
  • Tice developing new identity

    Tice developing new identity
    Mike Tice probably is more popular than any offensive coordinator in Bears history. Of course that could change Sunday on the Bears' first possession against the Colts, which also will be Tice's first chance in the job. Though the Bears don't have a...
  • A Bears offense never seen before

    A Bears offense never seen before
    If the Bears had a sense of humor they would pass out 61,500 pairs of blue-and-orange 3-D glasses Sunday at Soldier Field to symbolize the new way of watching football in Chicago. Behold, Bears fans: Your team finally caught up to the modern NFL. But I...
  • Rosenbloom: Drawing a line with Cutler

    Rosenbloom: Drawing a line with Cutler
    It still makes no sense that the Bears ignored their starting offensive line in the first phase of free agency or the draft. It makes less sense when you believe the Bears are a Super Bowl contender the way I believe. It’s even more mind-...
