    New math: Better Bears offense + worse Packers defense = revenge
    Maybe it’s just me, but I was totally unimpressed with the Packers defense. Completely and absolutely unimpressed. It was bad last season. It looked bad to start this season. The 49ers gashed the Packers for 186 yards rushing and 377 yards total,...

    Utilizing tight end should expand Bears' opportunities
    BOURBONNAIS — Create matchups. Work the ball inside of numbers. Target the inside vertical seams. Those are some of the opportunities you have in the passing game when the tight end plays a role in the game plan. This Bears offense has a new...

    Who fills the Urlacher void? Cutler, that's who
