Dan, do you see Marc Trestman replacing Johnny Knox with another speedy receiver in the draft? I really believe that he was a major missing piece of their offense since his catastrophic injury. I just don't think Trestman will find another one in free...

Dan, even with the additions of two starting linebackers, the team has zero depth at the position. Unless they plan to draft three linebackers, it's still the biggest need position on the roster. Is there any chance, maybe after the draft, that Brian...

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — If Marc Trestman was hoping to find some rhythm on offense and something to build on for the Bears' final few days of training camp, he'll have to continue his search when the team gets back to Bourbonnais.
The offense has been...

Jay Cutler is going to have the best year of his NFL career in 2013. Whether you love the Bears quarterback or love to hate him, Jay does not care. (DOOOOOOOOESN'T CAAAAAAAARE.) But what's happened around Cutler is what's important in forecasting his near...

Please join me as we bow our heads. We are acknowledging the close of the J'Marcus Webb era in Chicago.
Painfully inadequate, he made up for it by being a doofus off the field as well. Can't play left tackle, can't hide him at right tackle, we're out of...

At some point, Marc Trestman must tire of finding the upside in rebounding from a rocky beginning because if he doesn't the masses will tune him out.
It was a talking point the first-year Bears coach was able to refine with regular use in training...

Whenever I see people booing athletes, it takes all my strength to not turn to them and yell THIS.
So last week, I wrote a column stating that sports fans should stop booing their own team. To which a colleague asked: "What should the fans do when...

Bears coach Marc Trestman said earlier this week he wasn't ready to make any announcements about the rookies on the right side of his offensive line.
His decision Thursday night for the exhibition finale against the Browns at Soldier Field said it all....

The great experiment begins.
Can the Bears, always known for middle linebackers and running backs, evolve into a modern NFL franchise? One with an offensive-minded head coach, talented QB and modern-thinking GM?
Of course not. This is Chicago, and...

For the past decade, the Bears were the team with great defense and special teams and juuuust enough offense to be competitive. This combo resulted in a couple of close calls, but no Super Bowl wins.
The recipe for NFL success changed, and we've...

This class looks pretty enticing to a tackle-needy NFL. Three tackles figure to be top 10 picks. The talent drops off a little after that, but a number of others have enough ability to be starters pretty quickly. As many as a dozen tackles could be chosen...
