You have written repeatedly that Shea McClellin is not a fit as a linebacker in a 4-3 scheme and what I don’t understand is why? His measurables compare similarly to those of Brian Urlacher when he came out of New Mexico and he proved to be a...

Yep, it's almost over.
No, not the Bears' season. Only the most pessimistic fan would fear the worst from a 3-0 team.
Rather, "Breaking Bad" has just one more episode remaining to incinerate our nerves before its five-season run ends Sept. 29. And...

The Bears were facing one of the best special teams units in the NFL on Sunday, but special teams played a significant role in the Bears' victory.
On the blocked punt that Corey Wootton returned for a touchdown, the Bears surprised the Titans by sending...

The Bears’ passing game? Just like big-boy offenses.
The Bears’ running game? Looks like third-and-1 is no longer their version of clown college.
The Bears’ pass rush? Look at you, Israel Idonije, finally racking up sacks the way...
