If you're one of those fans who watched Monday's Bears-Packers game simply to pass the time before the release of "Call of Duty: Ghosts" on Tuesday, well, that's understandable.
However, you might not have realized Marc Trestman's team strikes a...

Mike Ditka didn't bring the 1985 Bears defense with him down the red carpet to midfield at halftime Monday night.
Because of the 2013 offense, he didn't have to.
Backup quarterback Josh McCown accounted for five touchdowns, three before the Bears...

Conventional wisdom said throw the ball away and take the field goal.
So, naturally, Bears quarterback Josh McCown took his chances. December in the NFL is no time for the timid, and the Bears arrived Monday night at Soldier Field intent on seizing...

CANTON, OHIO – 2027
I was telling everyone I would just get up here and say thanks, but there are too many people to mention.
First, thank you to Arizona, Detroit, Oakland, Miami, Carolina, Hartford and San Francisco for not believing in me....

The Bears and Marc Trestman can use some window dressing Sunday in Cleveland with their pre-snap alignments to run the "sail" route against the Browns. It's a three-level concept that gives quarterback Jay Cutler multiple options to target a Cover-3...

The Lions are coming to Chicago on Sunday, with both teams tied atop the NFC North at 5-3. For the Bears, 2013 has been a season in transition—they still have a star unit, but it's the offense, not the defense, that's turning heads.

After the season, the "Jay Cutler Effect" will be measured properly and perhaps even a bit embellished.
In the short term, the impact of his rapid return from a torn left groin muscle will be evaluated as he plays Sunday against the Lions when the Bears...

Sometimes I wish I didn't know anything about football.
Because if I didn't, I might have enjoyed Sunday's two-point disaster against Detroit. I might even be smiling now, just like the bartender who served me and my friends during the game.

Jay Cutler was hurt. It was obvious. He was hobbling. Limping. His magically healed torn groin had to be some kind of issue.
Same goes for his hand, which was slammed on a blitz. And his ankle, which was rolled in the second quarter. Just say his entire...
