    Passing game has big players for big plays
    Mike Tice is getting his first chances to play with some of his new toys, and the Bears offensive coordinator is discovering he has some fast cars and big trucks. Isn't that every boy's dream? Through the course of offseason workouts, Tice has been able...

  • Why Cutler should root for a longer lockout

    Why Cutler should root for a longer lockout
    Me, I’m rooting for the lawyers in this one. If you are a Bears fan, a Bears player or a Bears wonk, I suggest you do the same, and here’s why: If the NFL and the players can’t strike a deal to end the lockout by July 21, then it...
  • As McCaskey talks, Bears lose a weapon

    At Michael McCaskey’s final NFL owners meeting as chairman of the Bears, NFL owners voted to move up kickoffs and neuter one of the Bears’ greatest weapons. Perfect. If you ever wondered how little clout the Bears have league-wide, no matter...
  • Rodgers wins QB duel over Cutler

    When Aaron Rodgers embraced Jay Cutler near the 50-yard line at 10:44 p.m. Monday night, he must have been wondering why he was congratulating Cutler instead of it being the other way around. Rodgers had outdueled his counterpart from south of the...
  • Bears fail to keep Packers out of playoffs

    Bears fail to keep Packers out of playoffs
    GREEN BAY, Wis. — Lovie Smith's decision to play his starters throughout Sunday's game at Lambeau Field might have created more questions about the Bears' playoff viability than anything else. Looking for momentum heading into the team's first...
  • 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....
  • Hanie still has to make plays, people

    Hanie still has to make plays, people
    Brian Urlacher said Caleb Hanie’s athleticism allows him to move around the pocket and even suggested “a little (Tim) Tebow offense maybe.’’ Yes. Well. I’m still hoping for a little NFL offense. Urlacher mostly talked about...
  • 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...
