    Bears getting very little bang for big defensive bucks
    Charles Tillman's departure from the 2013 season feels like the final, wretched piece in an unnatural, reverse transformation. Think of a butterfly rewinding backward into a larvae or caterpillar state until you have the pupa that is the Bears devolved...

  • RIP, legendary Bears defense

    RIP, legendary Bears defense
    It's sad when it ends like this. I am talking about the Bears season, but I'm also speaking of the great Bears defense. So many years. So many wins. So many pick-sixes, forced fumbles, great players. It had to end sometime and it has ended …...

    Remember how you feared former Bears general manager Jerry Angelo drafting offense?  Watch out, because now it looks like Phil Emery is having the same effect on the once-proud unit known as the Bears defense. I guess that Halas Hall seat comes with...
  • Optimism for Bears a tough sell

    Optimism for Bears a tough sell
    As far as Mondays at Halas Hall go, surely the Bears have experienced ones that sucked the life out of a football city more than the day after their 45-41 loss to the Redskins did. But none immediately come to mind. Rare is the occasion when an NFL...
  • Bears' death-spiral defense loses only guy who tackles

    Bears' death-spiral defense loses only guy who tackles
    You might think the Bears don’t have much of a team after what you saw in Washington. They lost to a bad team and lost their captains on both side of the ball. Dire, if not terminal. Bears coach Marc Trestman thinks you’re wrong. You...
  • Football is dead to us, Bears fans

    Football is dead to us, Bears fans
    I am the most optimistic Chicago sports fan you'll ever read. I still hold hope that the Theocracy will break a 105-year Cubs drought, I believe Derrick Rose will lead the Bulls past Miami this spring, and I don't see any reason why the Blackhawks won't...

    Bennett: Injuries just part of the roller coaster
    Bears tight end Martellus Bennett showed off his artwork publicly for the first time at a reception Monday for The Dinner Party, a monthly talk show at City Winery. And while proceeds from the show will benefit After School Matters, Bears fans wanted to...

    Ready for the Josh McCown show?
    Ouch. And double ouch. The football gods dropped the hammer on Bears Nation on Monday, as quarterback Jay Cutler is out at least four weeks with a torn groin muscle and linebacker Lance Briggs is out four to six weeks with a shoulder fracture. Which...
