  • Deep thoughts on one thing Bears still missing

    Deep thoughts on one thing Bears still missing
    I’d like to see Jay Cutler put together a scoring drive with actual third-down conversions, just like big-boy offenses, and even those run by Derek Freakin’ Anderson. Palm-to-forehead. I’d also like to see the rookies on the right side...
  • Cutler on board with Trestman, but for how long?

    Cutler on board with Trestman, but for how long?
    Jerry Rice is a Hall-of-Fame receiver, the greatest ever. Some people would argue he’s the greatest football player, period. That’s not the point of this piece, but Rice’s credentials, which include the most touchdowns in NFL history...
  • Whole lotta love for the 1-0 Bears

    Whole lotta love for the 1-0 Bears
    Welcome to the new age, Bears fans. The previous regime was all right; it’s not as if Lovie Smith’s 10-6 record in 2012 was a disaster. But when it’s Super Bowl or bust, you need a nuclear-powered offense or defense—or both—...
  • Two and oh! Chi-ca-go!

    Two and oh! Chi-ca-go!
    Warning: Far too much love being shown in this column. Disclaimer: It's early, things are still good. Now, the column. Let's just keep our emotions in check. It's only one game. But baby, let's dream anyway! The Bears should be 2-0 after this week....
  • A clean Cutler is a happy Cutler

    A clean Cutler is a happy Cutler
    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...
  • Former Bears tackle James Williams lists home for $1.75M

    Former Bears tackle James Williams lists home for $1.75M
    Retired Chicago Bears offensive tackle James "Big Cat" Williams has listed his 9,170-square-foot house in Lake Forest for $1.75 million. Williams, 45, played his entire 12-year professional football career with the Bears, starting 134 consecutive...
  • Welcome back, Devin Hester

    Welcome back, Devin Hester
    Isn’t this where we came in with Devin Hester? Isn’t this the kind of guy we saw eight seasons ago when he pantsed the NFL with kickoff and punt returns that were, well, ridiculous, as Jeff Joniak said? Hester is back to returning kicks...
  • Fantasy Fix: Not too late to get a QB

    Fantasy Fix: Not too late to get a QB
    As Lovie Smith used to say, fantasy football players look at the season in quarters. Well, if after the first four games you still need a quarterback, I have the answer. Alex Smith, E.J. Manuel or Brian Hoyer will help your team; they have been solid...
  • Time not on Peppers' side

    Time not on Peppers' side
    After the Bears failed to pressure Drew Brees into an interception in a conference loss at home, defensive end Julius Peppers was asked how to fix the pass rush or change things or make it all better. Pepper said he didn’t have a lot of time to...
  • Does Emery know how to draft a defense?

    Does Emery know how to draft a defense?
    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...
  • Trestman stands by his decision ... sorta ... maybe

    Trestman stands by his decision ... sorta ... maybe
    How many times can the Bears' rookie head coach be wrong about the same decision? Early Monday morning, Trestman told WBBM-AM 780 that after viewing video of the Bears’ 21-19 loss to the Lions on Sunday he might’ve taken out his injured,...
