This season always has been about Jay Cutler. Sunday’s game against the Browns certainly was all about Cutler.
Especially about Cutler.
After missing four games because of injuries and then regaining his starting position after Josh McCown&...

It's not Tim Tebow.
It's not divine intervention.
It's stupid and bad play by the Bears.
Marion Barber was the worst offender of both stupid and bad. He wasn't alone -- the defense, the coaches, the embarrassing quarterback and receivers deserve to be...

Marc Trestman sounded optimistic that Jay Cutler would start Sunday.
One question, of course, is whether Cutler would finish the game.
The doctors cleared Cutler to practice at full speed and Trestman planned to put him through a full-speed workout...

The Bears were supposed to beat the dogbreath Panthers.
They weren’t supposed to play dogbreath themselves in doing it.
What a miserable come-from-behind win.
It counts, sure. It makes the Bears 6-1. But it was aggravating to watch and, worse,...

Dear Bears offense, your coach doesn’t trust you.
We already knew he didn’t trust his ridiculously bad defense, but he doesn’t trust you. He showed that in overtime in Minnesota on Sunday. No matter that you had just blasted down the...

If the NFL really wanted to back up all its big talk about parity, it would’ve made Josh McCown quarterback the Packers.
Sorry, but I wasn’t impressed, no matter what the final yardage was. McCown threw two interceptions when it mattered, and...

The decision to leave injured, inaccurate Jay Cutler in the game, a two-point conversion play that passed out of a run formation, a gift second-chance that ran out of a passing formation, going for it on fourth-and-1 in the first half of a tied game ---...

BOURBONNAIS, Ill. — Twelve years ago, the Chicago Bears staged a statewide hunt for their new summer home.

As projected, 'twas a very lean year for Penn State in the draft, with just offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski and running back Evan Royster selected in the second and sixth rounds, respectively. Perhaps five or six other Nittany Lions will......

I remember exactly where I was when I found out there were going to be no more Grant Park movies. I was studying abroad in Greece last year, sitting in the school’s computer lab between classes, when I decided to research that summer’s lineup....
