Until the Bears beat the Bengals in the Sept. 8 opener at Soldier Field, there's no call for a victory parade. No cause for celebration.
Regardless, I consider the first two days of Camp Trestman a "win."
Before Marc Trestman outlined — in...

Here is a fun game to play with friends: Name the best or deepest position on the Bears. Where are they at their best? Is it their depth at defensive line or running back or in the secondary, perhaps?
"Cornerback,'' cornerback Tim Jennings said....

We can't put a grade on this Bears team two games into the exhibition schedule, nor can we throw out absolutes on personnel or scheme. Plenty needs to be cleaned up on offense, and we don't want to overreact because the Bears' No. 1 defense beat up on a...

It bears repeating on the first Monday of September that one Friday night in August hardly suggests an NFL team will play on a super Sunday in February.

Following a similar trend that we saw during Phil Emery's first draft in 2012, the Bears general manager once again targeted rookie prospects over the weekend that bring size, speed and strength measurables to the NFL.
The Bears are projecting talent at...

If the Bears had been picking 32nd instead of 20th, no one would have said boo about them selecting Kyle Long. But they were picking 20th, and they caught a lot of people by surprise.
Based on my pre-draft research, I thought Long would be a second-...

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...

INDIANAPOLIS — For an NFL team, coming to the scouting combine can be a little like visiting an automobile showroom.
Flashy, pricey things are on display that catch eyes.
Many are veterans with expiring contracts. Many are players who will be...
