In the April draft, the Bears chose Shea McClellin in the first round and passed over Illinois' Whitney Mercilus. On Sunday, during his first visit to Soldier Field, Mercilus would like to offer them a not-so-subtle reminder of that — perhaps by...
Going into Bears versus Texans, many thought the most important game within the game was the Bears offensive line against the Texans' pass rush. Well, a review of the tape shows the Bears won that battle convincingly but still lost the war. Give...
To score points against the Texans' top-tier defense, Jay Cutler and the Bears will have to take some shots when they get into the strike zone (20- to 35-yard line). Look for deep inside breaking routes that target the secondary with Brandon Marshall as...
The Patriots and Tom Brady can show multiple alignments with their two tight end personnel against the Texans in their playoff game Sunday. Think of spread looks with both Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez removed from the core of the formation to create...
In pursuit of the NFL's toughest running back to tackle, Brian Urlacher reached for Adrian Peterson and hung on for dear life as any self-respecting linebacker would after his left hand latched onto the back of Peterson's shoulder pads. As Peterson...

The Texans made second-year defensive end J.J. Watt a captain this week. This was after the media pronounced him defensive player of the year about a month ago. And after defensive coordinator Wade Phillips put him in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in...
