    Lovie Smith out after 9 seasons as Bears coach
    The epitaph for Lovie Smith's tenure as head coach of the Bears could read, "He couldn't fix the offense." For all the good things Smith did in his nine years in Chicago, his undoing was his inability to take care of the side of the ball in which he...

     Bears' pass rush making all the difference
    The popular joke when the Bears traded for Jay Cutler in 2009 was that they fleeced the Broncos by including two first-round draft picks because such selections were worthless in Chicago. The trade simply spared the Bears the indignity of making even more...
