Welcome to the new age, Bears fans. The previous regime was all right; it’s not as if Lovie Smith’s 10-6 record in 2012 was a disaster. But when it’s Super Bowl or bust, you need a nuclear-powered offense or defense—or both—...

It's easy to forget this now, but in October 2005, Robbie Gould was an unknown solution to a known problem. Veteran kicker Doug Brien had missed three of four kicks and injured his back, and the Bears held a tryout for his replacement.
Emerging from the...

New coach, new identity, new offensive line, new expectations. Spirits are high again for the Bears this season, but are they realistic?

Jay Cutler was reunited with Brandon Marshall on Thursday night and the pair connected on four passes and a touchdown in the first half of the Bears' 33-28 preseason victory over the Chargers at Soldier Field.

You play golf with Bo Jackson, you want a story to tell.
I was not lucky enough to witness his home runs in four consecutive at-bats. Or the time he turned linebacker Brian Bosworth into silly putty. Or when he broke a bat over his helmet.

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