You don't need the three-fingered grip of Odell Beckham Jr., to grasp that change is constant in the NFL. Just because you could do something one year, doesn't mean it's promised to you the next. Strengths can become weaknesses, dizzying success quickly...

What has caused Marc Trestman to be more conservative in his play-calling this year versus last? -- @rmper05 from Twitter
This is a fair question and something I think a lot of people have been wondering about. The offense has failed to generate big...

Jay Cutler and the Bears can take some shots down the field to target the top of the Buccaneers Cover-2 defense by creating vertical opportunities out of a 3-by-1 formation on the "Seattle" concept.

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...

This team has a lot of holes. Would there be a market to trade Matt Forte to a contender for a late first-round or second-round pick next year? -- @plo1921 from Twitter
Now you’re talking about taking the most reliable part of the offense away....
