Thank you, Brian Urlacher.
If the Bears can’t be in the Super Bowl, if the Bears can’t get themselves to this week, then at least an ex-Bear can offer us some entertaining cattiness.
And believe me, this season’s Bears could never be...

Nobody in the Bears organization offered anything but high acclaim for backup quarterback Josh McCown the past month as he became Chicago's darling and one of the NFL's best stories.
Until Jay Cutler returned to the Bears lineup and the lectern Thursday...

Considering their alternatives, the Bears appear to have made a reasoned decision to lock up Jay Cutler with a seven-year, $126 million deal.

You don't need to be a football lifer or have the eye of a scout to determine Jay Cutler is a superior athlete to Josh McCown with a much stronger arm.
Similarly, you don't need to have an analytics background to determine the offense scores more points...

Deer roaming around hunting blinds in the Wisconsin woods won't be targeted Monday as much as safety Chris Conte expects to be in the Bears secondary at Lambeau Field.
When it comes to big-game experience, suffice to say Packers quarterback Aaron...

Before leaving Soldier Field shortly after midnight Monday, a Bears employee with a wry sense of humor — and the moment — cracked wise in a way that summed up the Josh McCown mania sweeping the city.
"Since we said No. 89 is the last...

In a tunnel inside Lambeau Field before the Bears changed their season by beating the Packers on Monday night, coach Marc Trestman succinctly answered a question that explained a lot about what would happen over the next couple of hours — and...

At the risk of making my computer wonder if it was hacked, duty compels me to report Jay Cutler connected logically during a news conference Thursday at Halas Hall.
