Don't be fooled, Chicago.
Don't overstate the value of quarterback Jimmy Clausen making the Bears more lively Sunday in a 20-14 loss to a Lions team that was in the giving mood four days before Christmas.
Don't wonder where the Bears would be if coach...

Once Bears general manager Phil Emery received the bad news Monday that quarterback Jimmy Clausen cannot play in the season finale after showing delayed concussion symptoms, Emery's next stop should have been coach Marc Trestman's office.

Wise up, Bears fans. Raise your standards. Have some pride. Show some brains.
Don’t be the fan who gives the McCaskeys the easy way out by justifying Jimmy Clausen’s performance against the Lions.
This is not to bash Clausen. He had a...

In a stunning act of either ignorance or defiance — perhaps both — Bears coach Marc Trestman benched quarterback Jay Cutler in favor of backup Jimmy Clausen.
More than just a change on the depth chart, the quarterback switch figures to...

Jay Cutler has been the Chicago Bears' starting quarterback since 2009.
Jimmy Clausen hasn't started a game since his rookie season back in 2010.

Four awkward seconds of silence Thursday at Halas Hall summed up everything you need to know about the sorry state of the Bears.
Asked if it would be accurate to say Bears general manager Phil Emery supported his decision to bench quarterback Jay Cutler...

If Bears know they're out of the playoffs, do they try to experiment with putting other players in, possibly even Jimmy Clausen? -- @CtownSportsTal
The Bears have been playing “other players” for much of the season. They have used a league-...

Any chance we see Jimmy Clausen before this year is over? -- @MikeOdomSports from Twitter
You need to get better control of your TV remote. Clausen has played in each of the last two games in mop-up time. He also appeared at the end of the Week 4 loss to...

Maybe it's time to consider benching Jay Cutler. He is a mediocre quarterback at best. In Denver, he was no better. The Bears whiffed on two quarterbacks – Drew Brees and Peyton Manning -- who would have thrived with this offense. Bring on Jimmy...

We want to feel confidence. We want to believe the Bears are better than the Packers, finally, and should take care of business in the most important game of the season's first quarter. We want to, but we don't.
The Packers come to Soldier Field at 1-2,...

BOURBONNAIS — Confidence has been a theme of Jimmy Clausen's football career. Was he overconfident as a quarterback in high school and at Notre Dame? Was his confidence badly shaken after losing nine of 10 starts as a rookie with the Panthers and...
