Following his Crown Royal party at Tesla Motors on Wednesday, Outkast rapper Big Boi hung out at Jbar at The James Hotel. The Bulls' Taj Gibson also stopped by the Crown Royal party and Jbar that night.
NFL Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk and Bears...

Excuse me, but I’m sick of hearing hear how the Bears are a victory over Tampa Bay away from having the same record they took into the bye last season.
The subtext seems to be this: Look at the way they stumbled to start last season and still won...

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-...

The Choice (and remember, death is not an option): Mike Martz’s end-around to Dane Sanzenbacher with the game still in doubt or Mike Martz’s bootleg for Jay Cutler with the game already decided?
But wait, other than those two curious calls, I...

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...

I have an answer for Darryl Drake: Because we’re tired of being served dung and then told it’s dinner.
This is not “Jeopardy!’’ This is not about giving an answer and then getting to the question. Because Drake did not ask a...

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'...

The Bears should’ve made their fans happy with the firing of general manager Jerry Angelo on Tuesday.
He made a spectacular move in trading for Jay Cutler, then failed to surround him with the tools needed to make him the franchise quarterback that...

I doubt anybody describes Bears general manager Phil Emery as dull today.
This is how a new GM gets his point across clearly, by pulling off the type of trade that drops jaws and potentially changes the balance of power in the NFC. This is when you can...

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...

The Bears didn't just announce to doubters they're to be taken seriously in the NFC this season. They screamed it.
A 30-12 dismantling of the Falcons in the season opener Sunday at Soldier Field was as much an affirmation as it was a victory. They took...
