  • Bears alive heading into final Sunday

    Bears alive heading into final Sunday
    GLENDALE, Ariz. — They're alive. Only because they faced an offense far more disjointed than their own were the Bears able to withstand another lethargic start. Jump-started by two defensive touchdowns — their first since Week 9 —...

    Hamstring strain could sideline Urlacher for season
    The Bears have to brace themselves for the possibility of Brian Urlacher missing at least the rest of the regular season. Multiple sources told the Tribune that Urlacher won't play for the next three games at a minimum after suffering a Grade 2 right...
  • Emery's first hire might be Cutler's last chance

    Emery's first hire might be Cutler's last chance
    "Change isn’t always bad," Jay Cutler was saying Monday shortly after the Chicago Bears whacked Lovie Smith. Wait, Cutler said that? Cutler said change isn’t always bad? The guy who seemed annoyed that he has had a different offensive...
  • Rosenbloom: Bears must aggressively pursue Holmgren

    Rosenbloom: Bears must aggressively pursue Holmgren
    If Mike Holmgren is interested in coaching, then Phil Emery had better be interested in talking to him. Holmgren told ESPN.com that he indeed would consider returning to the sideline, but isn’t aggressively seeking a job. If a guy says he wants to...

    Special teams coaches are the hot NFL thing, so what about Dave Toub?
    Phil Emery put a couple special teams coaches on his list of coaching candidates, and that’s only the two that we know about. The Bears general manager might have more names on his LinkedIn account, and it can’t be just to comply with the...
  • No reason for Bears to extend Smith now

    No reason for Bears to extend Smith now
    Bears coach Lovie Smith can be a spinner of fairy tales at times. Devin Hester is a No. 1 receiver. Remember that one? I also recall Smith proclaiming that the Bears’ victory in Minnesota last January actually was their first win of this season,...
  • Bears' idea of respecting Urlacher looks disingenuous, deceitful

    Bears' idea of respecting Urlacher looks disingenuous, deceitful
    It’s not so much that the Chicago Bears parted ways with Brian Urlacher, a surefire Hall of Famer robbed of his greatest asset by injuries. No, it was the sloppy, squirrely, deceitful manner the Bears went about it. It might be too much to say...
  • Memo to Emery: Draft starters. Plural.

    Memo to Emery: Draft starters. Plural.
    My issue isn’t that Bears General Manager Phil Emery has fewer draft picks than he has positional needs. Every GM has fewer picks than he has needs. Just ask them. But for those of you keeping score at home, Tribune football guru Dan Pompei did...
  • 49ers pound Bears

    49ers pound Bears
    SAN FRANCISCO — It's too bad Colin Kaepernick wasn't available when Phil Emery set out to find a backup quarterback. The first-year general manager had to strike quickly to find an experienced No. 2. The Bears invested big money in Jason Campbell,...
  • Later for Lovie

    Later for Lovie
    The Chicago Bears' season is over. Same goes for Lovie Smith’s run as Bears coach. Has to be. Smith has to be fired. Today. Get on with it. If the Bears are serious about winning the Super Bowl, there’s no other choice. The Bears...
  • The Urlacher plan (my plan, anyway)

    The Urlacher plan (my plan, anyway)
    Listen up, it only matters if Brian Urlacher misses a real game. What’s more, it doesn’t really matter if he misses the first real game. In fact, I’d suggest he do exactly that and I’ll explain later on. But first, the Bears...

    Biggs: 10 thoughts on Bears' exhibition opener
    Ten things to take away from the Chicago Bears' 31-3 loss to the Denver Broncos in their preseason opener: 1. No one game plans for the opening preseason game and starters don’t play into the fourth quarter in the first exhibition. But maybe nobody...
