Bears starting wide receiver Roy Williams said he knows “if I mess up or anything, it’s going to be blown out of proportion.’’
He also said he’s not perfect.

Cruel and tasteless is how many black and gold fans remember the 2007 NFC Championship game in Chicago.
That’s when they say certain Bears fans crossed the line, bringing offensive Katrina related signs to the game.
“I think there are still...

It’s not a question of whether Jay Cutler’s thumb is broken. It’s a question of how badly the Bears’ season is broken.
Maybe it’s me, but I don’t see Caleb Hanie winning games the way Cutler did Sunday against San...

Brian Urlacher said Caleb Hanie’s athleticism allows him to move around the pocket and even suggested “a little (Tim) Tebow offense maybe.’’

MINNEAPOLIS - So what the heck is Percy Harvin?

Caleb Hanie was understandably respectful Wednesday. Mike Martz knows better than he does, Hanie said of the plays he is asked to execute, three of which turned into interceptions.

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...

Remember last year when it was all about accountability at Halas Hall?
It was public and loud and demanded like never before. Guys were getting cut all the time, even after wins, I believe.

Who will be the next Kelly Clarkson? Or Carrie Underwood? Or Scotty McCreery?
As usual, the question won't be answered until May, but much of the fun is in the journey ... as "American Idol" is determined to prove again. The hugely popular Fox singing...

Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn will head north next weekend to settle a losing bet that the Bears would defeat the Green Bay Packers in January’s NFC Championship game.
Quinn made the wager with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker nearly seven months ago, but...
