    Looking back at the Chicago Bears' loss to the Detroit Lions
    Lions 21, Bears19 Strategy: The Bears offense has a different look to it under new coach Marc Trestman, who was known as an offensive innovator in the CFL. The Bears use a vertical passing attack to take advantage of strong-armed quarterback Jay...

    Bears getting very little bang for big defensive bucks
    Charles Tillman's departure from the 2013 season feels like the final, wretched piece in an unnatural, reverse transformation. Think of a butterfly rewinding backward into a larvae or caterpillar state until you have the pupa that is the Bears devolved...
  • Four Ravens-Bears predictions sure to go wrong

    Four Ravens-Bears predictions sure to go wrong
    The Ravens snapped a three-game losing streak last week, but many of the same issues lingered in their overtime win, none more critical than the running game. They have topped 100 yards on the ground just once, but my crystal ball tells me that their 2.8-...
  • Bears defense needs to toughen up

    Bears defense needs to toughen up
    It's time to change the fight song. Well, at least the version of "Bear Down, Chicago Bears" that everybody has grown used to — the one that blasts out in Soldier Field after every score for the home team. Keep the song, but maybe try a Muzak...

    Briggs offers simple advice to Bears
    When an outsider suggests a football team lacks heart, the opinion typically results in a player or coach questioning the credentials of the critic. Did he ever play the game, they scoff. But when the implication comes from a seven-time Pro Bowl...

    Bears can only wish Ford was right
    If you wonder why the Lions have been such a flaming failure for the last, oh, five decades, you have to start at the top -- right at the top of Bill Ford Jr.’s pinhead. Speaking at the team’s annual Courage House dinner, the Lions vice-...
  • Johnson, Bush change calculations for Bears

    Johnson, Bush change calculations for Bears
    The Bears defense has produced in its blitz schemes throughout the first three weeks of the season. However, with a matchup versus Calvin Johnson and the Lions, the Bears may choose to play some Cover-2 to limit the deep ball in Detroit. As shown here,...
  • Ellis gets new lease on NFL life

    Ellis gets new lease on NFL life
    There were no trumpets or bright lights welcoming the seventh pick of the 2008 draft when he unassumingly walked out to minicamp practice wearing a gray, long-sleeved T-shirt Wednesday. The expectations for Sedrick Ellis with the Bears are not what they...
  • After carrying Bears, Cutler costs them this time

    After carrying Bears, Cutler costs them this time
    DETROIT — All the happy talk over Bears quarterback Jay Cutler's mechanics during his team's 3-0 start overlooked the fact that you can't change his wiring. This is who Cutler is as a quarterback in Chicago, the reason the trains run on time one...
  • Bears offense is too good to mess this up

    Bears offense is too good to mess this up
    The fan overreaction that follows the first Bears loss of the season is as predictable as leaves changing color and local politicians getting indicted. After reading my timeline Sunday afternoon, I'm convinced Twitterbots generate at least half the Bears-...
  • Bears really will be playing moneyball this season

    Bears really will be playing moneyball this season
    BOURBONNAIS — Tradition dictates that the day the Bears report for training camp at Olivet Nazarene University includes plenty of floppy hats and flimsy subject matter. So it came as no surprise when general manager Phil Emery began his remarks...
