  • Bears big problem isn't Urlacher's injury

    Bears big problem isn't Urlacher's injury
    Stephen Paea is injured. Of course he is. It’s what he does, occasionally finding a spasm of health and talent to rush the passer. Paea had a bad knee last season, then underwent arthroscopic surgery and looked like a player during the early...
  • Remember when the Bears used to rush the passer?

    Remember when the Bears used to rush the passer?
    Any time the Bears want to rush the passer, fine by me. Sure, the Bears had a series of problems against the Giants on Friday night. Bears coach Lovie Smith said the practice game was like a final exam, and in that case, the Bears’ first-...
  • Hey, look! An offensive line worse than the Bears'

    Hey, look! An offensive line worse than the Bears'
    You know what’s worse than the Bears’ offensive line? The Cowboys’ offensive line, that’s what. Hard to believe, I know. It’s not often the Bears' offensive line stinks less than the opponent’s, but just look: The...
  • Don't let Cutler's offense hog all the criticism

    Don't let Cutler's offense hog all the criticism
    If it was only the offense that was killing the Bears against a bad Carolina team, it would’ve been just a continuation of what we’ve unfortunately gotten used to. Everywhere you turn, people are pounding the offense for its pathetic...
  • Trestman faces a credibility issue

    Trestman faces a credibility issue
    One month, Bears coach Marc Trestman is saying defensive coordinator Mel Tucker is doing an “amazing’’ job. Next month, Trestman is leaving Tucker’s continued employment a question. Thanks for all the support, boss....
  • Hey, look! A Bears offense!

    Jay Cutler made quick, accurate decisions, Matt Forte was dangerous everywhere and Marc Trestman’s play-calling used the width and depth of the field. Like that, the Bears piled up 212 yards and three TDs in their first 20 plays. Now, can they do...
  • It starts with Peppers, so when does Peppers start playing?

    It starts with Peppers, so when does Peppers start playing?
    Julius Peppers wasn’t on the Bears injury report, so we have to trust that nobody is lying and that Peppers is healthy. If so, then that narrows the options to one: Peppers was just plain bad in the win over the Bengals. It wasn’t as if he...
  • What part of 'pass rush' don't Bears understand?

    What part of 'pass rush' don't Bears understand?
    OK, so Julius Peppers was sick. What’s the excuse for the rest of the Bears' defensive line? Right now, that appears to be the worst unit on the Bears. I mean, it looks like the pass rush is being coordinated by Fox. I’ve heard that the...
  • Time not on Peppers' side

    Time not on Peppers' side
    After the Bears failed to pressure Drew Brees into an interception in a conference loss at home, defensive end Julius Peppers was asked how to fix the pass rush or change things or make it all better. Pepper said he didn’t have a lot of time to...
  • Trying to make sense of Emery's ongoing disaster

    Maybe it’s me, but when Bears general manager Phil Emery says that new Bears linebacker Shea McClellin was the team’s best "pass disruptor" when he played defensive end, everyone looks stupid. First, Julius Peppers. Emery’s statement...
  • Tackling the Bears' defensive line

    Tackling the Bears' defensive line
    The question isn’t who will replace Julius Peppers. No, the question is who couldn’t. You there, reading this piece on your laptop, get in there at right defensive end for the next snap. You couldn’t lose outside contain much worse...
