He still looks like Cam Newton and moves like Cam Newton, but he's not playing like Cam Newton.
At least not the Cam Newton who won the offensive rookie of the year award in 2011.
So who is this guy wearing No. 1 for the Panthers?
That would be a...

Temperatures dipped into the lower 40s and blustery winds whipped around Soldier Field during the Bears' 23-22, come-from-behind victory Sunday over the lowly Panthers. But did the elements surrounding the game remind anybody else of the desert?...

Greg Olsen left Chicago kicking and screaming last summer when former Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz apparently expedited his trade to the Panthers because the pass-catching tight end did not fit into his system.
So it is natural for Olsen to...

— The age-old debate about heredity vs. environment doesn't apply to John Harbaugh.

NEW ORLEANS — When Jim Harbaugh felt Chicago's walls closing in on him during his final, fateful season as a Bears quarterback in 1993, he often sought refuge at old Halas Hall in the basement office of Geep Chryst.
Chryst, the Bears' director...

It’s official: Phil Emery has hit stupid time.
Mike Singletary has been added to Emery’s list.

Last week in parenthesis
1. Broncos (1): In their last four games, no team has come within 13 points of them, and in their 11 game winning streak they have only trailed in the fourth quarter once.

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...

The Bears may appear to be going nowhere, but that doesn't mean Lovie Smith is headed anywhere.
