  • 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...

  • 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...
  • NFC playoffs: Bears 35, Seahawks 24

    When Lovie Smith was hired as Bears coach seven years ago, he sounded like a man who had come directly out of a pep talk from the McCaskeys, who were tired of having their franchise humiliated for more than a decade by Brett Favre. Now Smith has a game...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • Bears' offense fails to impress in 10-3 victory

    Bears' offense fails to impress in 10-3 victory
    It took the Bears just more than a week of training camp to name the starting offensive line. We will see if one exhibition game is all it takes to send the coaching staff back to the drawing board. There probably will not be a knee-jerk reaction...
  • Wait, J'Marcus Webb said what?

    Wait, J'Marcus Webb said what?
    First-and-long: It’s hard to know which is worse: J’Marcus Webb playing left tackle during the Bears’ exhibition opener against Buffalo on Saturday night or J’Marcus Webb talking about it later. Webb lined up at the most...
  • Bears' Emery makes statement

    Bears' Emery makes statement
    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...
  • Bears owe Goodell

    Roger Goodell just gave the Bears a season. No, the NFL Commissioner didn’t send out a press release. And no, he did not appear on NFL Network to explain how and why. But when Lord Roger Voldemort sent his Death Eaters to New Orleans in the wake of...
  • Smith sees mostly blue sky

    Smith sees mostly blue sky
    PALM BEACH, Fla. — Sunshine has not been difficult to find at the oceanfront site of the NFL meetings, but Lovie Smith brought more of it Wednesday in a breakfast with the media. The Bears coach was particularly optimistic about the addition of...
  • Anytime Martz wants to help Bears blockers get better, fine by me

    Bears interim offensive coordinator Mike Martz said Jay Cutler will play more against the Giants on Monday night than he did in last week’s exhibition opener, blocking permitting. And hey, new NFL rule: Blocking is permitted. Honest. True fact....
