    5 storylines to watch as Bears play out string
    It has been three years since the Bears played a regular-season game without any chance of making the playoffs. That's the bleak probability they face, though, after Thursday's 34-17 loss to the Lions dropped them three games out of a wild-card spot...
  • Lance Briggs done for season, and likely done as a Bear

    Lance Briggs done for season, and likely done as a Bear
    Lance Briggs’ season officially is over. His playing career in Chicago likely is finished as well. The Bears placed Briggs on injured reserve on Friday, five days after the longtime linebacker suffered a groin injury in the team’s 21-13...
  • Marc Trestman needs a bad cop

    Marc Trestman needs a bad cop
    It's become apparent to me what Bears coach Marc Trestman's problem is. He needs a bad cop. Just like the movies. You know how it goes. A guy comes in after a loss, lays into the team. Yells at them, spits in their faces. "You son of a [bleep]! What...

    Bucs continue to thrive in pain-game of losing
    TAMPA — The Tampa Bay Bucs have perfected the Walk of Shame: Heads bowed, disgruntled and dejected as they progressively make their way from the field to the tunnel to the locker room. How many ways can you screw things up? "It sucks,"...

    Bears can't talk their way out of this mess
    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Brandon Marshall turned to reporters on his way inside the locker room at Gillette Stadium after the Bears suffered their latest butt kicking and said, "Put y'all's ears closer to the door." Then Marshall repeated it before...
  • NFL analysts knock Cutler, Bears

    NFL analysts knock Cutler, Bears
    The NFL analysts took target practice on the Bears and Jay Cutler Sunday. And that was before their blowout loss to New England. The pregame shows weighed in on the Bears’ problems. Terry Bradshaw on “Fox NFL Sunday” went after Cutler,...
  • Bears' Matt Forte excelling at 'touch' football

    Bears' Matt Forte excelling at 'touch' football
    It was a bit odd Thursday to hear Matt Forte say he doesn't do something. Surely, he wasn't talking about his production on the field, where the Bears rely on their Pro Bowl running back for a bit of everything. Forte runs, catches, blocks and rarely...
  • Brad Biggs' NFL power rankings

    Last week in parentheses. 1. Broncos 6-1 (1): Looked strong against AFC West-rival Chargers and now prepare for latest Peyton Manning-Tom Brady installment. 2. Patriots 6-2 (5): Development of WR Brandon LaFell makes Brady much more dangerous with big...
  • Re-Marc-able failure

    Re-Marc-able failure
    If the Bears are trying to find a hood ornament for the clown car representing the 2014 season, then Lamarr Houston just fell on his unproductive backside to claim that ignominious distinction. Houston personified stupid with a capital idiot,...
  • Ravens score 38 points in first half, roll to easy, 48-17 win over Tampa Bay

    Ravens score 38 points in first half, roll to easy, 48-17 win over Tampa Bay
    TAMPA, FLA. – Joe Flacco faked the handoff, rolled to his left and stared downfield. Without a Tampa Bay Buccaneer defender in sight, he waited and waited, and then waited some more. Finally unleashing a high-arcing pass, Flacco watched Steve...
  • How does Lovie Smith's Jay Cutler compare to Marc Trestman's Cutler?

    How does Lovie Smith's Jay Cutler compare to Marc Trestman's Cutler?
    As I recall, the main reason offered for Lovie Smith's firing was his inability to field a potent offense (read: realize Jay Cutler's potential). With this season's losses mounting, I am wondering how Cutler's win-loss records as a starter under Marc...
