  • The Bears season in a splint

    The Bears season in a splint
    It’s not a question of whether Jay Cutler’s thumb is broken. It’s a question of how badly the Bears’ season is broken. Maybe it’s me, but I don’t see Caleb Hanie winning games the way Cutler did Sunday against San...
  • Bears pick off Cowboys 34-18, improve to 3-1

    Bears pick off Cowboys 34-18, improve to 3-1
    ARLINGTON, Texas — A national television audience got a good glimpse of the stout defense and volatile yet improving offense that has defined the first quarter of the Bears season. The defense intercepted Tony Romo five times — with Charles...
  • Bears head into uncertain offseason after ending 5-game skid

    Bears head into uncertain offseason after ending 5-game skid
    MINNEAPOLIS — Now the hard work begins. The Bears ended a five-game losing streak that crippled a promising season, edging the NFC North cellar-dwelling Vikings 17-13 on Sunday at the Metrodome and setting the stage for a pivotal offseason....
  • Bears' season all but over

    Bears' season all but over
    A week after being Tebowed, the Bears managed to get T-Jacked with their fragile season hanging in the balance. Minus quarterback Jay Cutler and running back Matt Forte, the Bears admitted their defense needed to step up and carry them. Brian Urlacher...
  • Cutler delivered the way a leader does

    Cutler delivered the way a leader does
    Jay Cutler wasn't particularly sharp as a passer against Philadelphia on Monday night. But Jay Cutler was particularly brilliant when it came to being a quarterback. Being a leader. Being a winner. Yeah, Cutler underthrew some deep passes. But when it...
  • Dan Pompei's Bears mailbag

    Dan Pompei's Bears mailbag
    I would like to know your thoughts on the Bears' first round pick (No. 19) in this year's draft. As I see it there will be plenty of quality No. 1 receivers in free agency, large and small. Wouldn't it be wiser for them to opt for a DE the likes of Nick...
  • Who were Bears' real workhorses?

    Who were Bears' real workhorses?
    Dave Toub was forced to wonder how it would shake out at this time a year ago when the Bears' top six tacklers on special teams all were headed to unrestricted free agency. He's in a similar position again as five of the top eight core players, based...
  • Cutler stays up, but Bears' offense a downer

    Cutler stays up, but Bears' offense a downer
    On his first chance in the exhibition season, Roy Williams dropped a third-and-10 pass that would’ve picked up 16. While he gets into football shape, can he also get into catching shape? No, wait, I think one of the guys with a reputation for drops...
  • It's not that Cutler cursed Martz, it's what took him so long?

    Look, Jay Cutler wouldn’t have to use naughty words if offensive coordinator Mike Martz would simply call the game plan Cutler told him to call. Cutler didn’t deny he F-bombed Martz in Sunday night’s game, nor did he have any regrets...
  • Bears abandon run and get run out of Superdome by Saints

    Bears abandon run and get run out of Superdome by Saints
    NEW ORLEANS — Last year, the Bears waited until their off week at midseason to have a meeting about how the offense was being run. Is Week 3 a good time to schedule one for 2011? Offensive coordinator Mike Martz brought one of his pass-happy...
  • A bunch of reasons Smith called out Melton

    A bunch of reasons Smith called out Melton
    Lovie Smith almost never calls out a player. That’s a big reason his players love him. He always has their back. So, when the Bears coach called out starting defensive tackle Henry Melton in advance of Monday night’s game in Philadelphia,...
