Most of the players on the Bears roster were acquired by Jerry Angelo to be coached by Lovie Smith. Now that neither is part of the organization anymore, many of those players might not be feeling quite as secure.
The fates of many familiar faces in the...

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...

Forget Calvin Johnson versus Charles Tillman for a minute.
Let's pit Calvin Johnson against Brandon Marshall.
Viewed strictly on the field, who would you rather have?
Start here: Most teams in the NFL probably would love to have either.

What will teams do now to exploit the loss of Brian Urlacher? Physically not a huge threat but ability to change formations a key loss. -- @Tquille, from Twitter
I've heard a lot of talk this season about how Urlacher can't move anymore. Understand...

In the April draft, the Bears chose Shea McClellin in the first round and passed over Illinois' Whitney Mercilus.
On Sunday, during his first visit to Soldier Field, Mercilus would like to offer them a not-so-subtle reminder of that — perhaps by...

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...

A little more than a month after the Bears professed to be re-emphasizing the draft, they likely are about to make it rain in free agency.
But that's good because this is an unusual year in free agency. Typically, the market mostly offers players who are...

It took the Bears just more than a week of training camp to name the starting offensive line.
We will see if one exhibition game is all it takes to send the coaching staff back to the drawing board.
There probably will not be a knee-jerk reaction...

The Bears defense took one look at the new and improved Falcons’ offense, and then destroyed it.
The Bears sized up quarterback Matt Ryan and his new rookie receiver and his established star on the other side, and blew them up.
Blew up all the...

Remember last year when it was all about accountability at Halas Hall?
It was public and loud and demanded like never before. Guys were getting cut all the time, even after wins, I believe.
Then the Bears lucked their way to the NFC Championship Game...

6th in a 10-part series
Charles Tillman could not say his ninth NFL season was his best and it very well might not be. After a while, they're hard to sort through when you've been a consistent performer.
But the veteran cornerback was selected to the...

If Mike Tice leaves to coach the Oakland Raiders,the Bears would have all kinds of bad news.
Or, looking at it another way, the Bears would have all kinds of typical Bears news.
The Bears thought they were looking for just a passing game coordinator/...
