If you're not a fan of Bears running back Matt Forte, that's OK, because he's been overlooked all season as Chicago struggled through a disappointing year.
But you can't help but like a guy who shrugs off a Pro Bowl snub despite having a stellar season....

Who carries the highest cap hits next year, minus Jay Cutler and Jared Allen? -- @nwfisch
The biggest cap charge for 2015 right now after Cutler ($16.5 million) and Allen ($12.5) is wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who will have a salary cap number of...

The Bears should prepare for the Saints defense Monday night to send pressure in passing situations with Rob Ryan's unit disguising coverages in the secondary to set some traps for quarterback Jay Cutler.
As shown here, the Bears have their Posse/11...

Running back Matt Forte remained patient and confident after totaling only 54 yards in the last two weeks against the 49ers and Jets. He knew he'd be more involved in the game plan against a Packers defense that isn't as stout as the Bears' two previous...

Protesters blocked the streets surrounding Soldier Field on Thursday night, making for a late-arriving crowd for the Bears' 41-28 loss to the Cowboys.
Tardy fans were the lucky ones.
The latest Bears loss was as hard to watch as the seven others but...

If you're going to create a cartoon parody of fantasy football, what better foils than Bears teammates Jay Cutler and Matt Forte? They're an apt illustration of how real-life football and fantasy football diverge: The Bears have a 5-8 record, yet Cutler...

The Choice (and remember, death is not an option): Marc Trestman’s play-calling at the end of the first half or Marc Trestman’s play-calling at the end of the first drive of the third quarter?

Was that the Bears’ best offensive line combination last week? -- @TomOMalley23 from Twitter
I don’t think so. For starters, left guard Matt Slauson is out of the lineup and given the choice between him or center Brian de la Puente playing...

Oh, bless you, Lovie Smith, your legacy is our fantasy football harvest. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Bears -- the former, Smith's current team, and the latter his previous team -- meet on Sunday in what has been dubbed the Lovie Bowl.

If Matt Forte can stay healthy for three more seasons, he should be on a smooth track for 10,000 rushing yards and 5,000 receiving yards. Obviously three seasons for a high mileage back is no gimme, and I know this is extremely premature, but as a...
