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...

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...

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...

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...

Abracadabra, the Bears are 3-0.
If the season ended today, the Bears would be in a three-way tie with New Orleans and Seattle for home-field advantage in the NFC. Congratulations. Of course, NFL seasons don't typically end after three weeks. And it's...

There's something for everyone in this class of defensive tackles. If it's a quick, pass rushing three technique you desire, Sharrif Floyd is your man. If you prefer a gigantic plugger, Johnathan Hankins will be your guy. Or if you need a combination, how...

As Phil Emery prepares for his second Bears draft, he would be wise to study his predecessor Jerry Angelo. The Bears will pick in the first, second, fourth, fifth and sixth rounds of the 2013 draft. RedEye takes a look at Angelo's best and worst from...

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...

The most frustrating part of watching Bears games this season comes when they're on defense, a 180 from every year in recorded history. More specifically, the weak spot is the very center of the defense.
Season-ending injuries to tackles Henry Melton...

"I don't look around and see [backups]," Lance Briggs told reporters after last week's win over the N.Y. Giants. "I look around and see Chicago Bears out there."
That's the spirit, Lance! While that might be the greatest teamwork-related quote ever, it'...

The Bears' starting front four is going to be a force this season and hopefully for years to come, but after the starters the roster doesn't look so great. I'm wondering, what percentage of snaps the starters are expected to play and how important it is...
