Our regular Tuesday foray into some things sports... It was 71 degrees in our living room as we watched the Bears dismantle the Cowboys Monday night, but it felt like 68 degrees. The wickedly cold temperatures at Soldier Field certainly......

Three Bears fans walk into a bar. Let's call them Trusty, Scaredy and Doubty:
Trusty: So, Jay Cutler should start Sunday, right?
Scaredy: Absolutely! Did you see that arm strength in the Cleveland game? He fits the football into windows that Josh...

Presumably, Bears players remain undivided in their support of linebacker Lance Briggs returning to start Sunday night against the Eagles.
There will be no whispers, controversy or anonymous sources this week. Everybody in Chicago agrees the Bears...

He doesn't have the rocket arm. Or the celebrity wife. Or even a Tumblr of him "smoking."

'Tis the season to believe. What better way to drive home that point than a Bears victory Sunday against the Packers at Soldier Field in a winner-take-all showdown for the seemingly unwanted NFC North title?
Mad as the idea seems, the Bears have one...

It could have been Chicago's dream come true: Winning a division title at the expense of its hated rival and earning a home playoff game next week.
Yet the city got its worst nightmare: the Packers celebrating yet another huge victory in Chicago, and...

Locker clean-out days always have a somber tone around the NFL. But Monday morning at Halas Hall, a day after the Bears narrowly missed out on a playoff berth with a 33-28 loss to the Packers, the uncertainty was more prevalent than usual.
As has been...

There's no guarantee that quarterback Josh McCown would return to the Chicago Bears next year if starter Jay Cutler ends up going elsewhere.
Family is the most important factor for the 34-year-old veteran, and that ultimately will be the determining...

And just like that, the Bears' quarterback debate is settled.
Ha, we couldn't even write that with a straight face, much less say or think it.
Jay Cutler did just enough in his latest comeback from injury this season, throwing for 265 yards and...
