The football gods dropped the hammer on Bears Nation on Monday, as quarterback Jay Cutler is out at least four weeks with a torn groin muscle and linebacker Lance Briggs is out four to six weeks with a shoulder fracture.

You might think the Bears don’t have much of a team after what you saw in Washington.
They lost to a bad team and lost their captains on both side of the ball. Dire, if not terminal.
Bears coach Marc Trestman thinks you’re wrong.

NFL midseason reports usually are written after eight games—ya know, at midseason. But with seven games in the books and injuries piling up, the 2013 Bears have reached a crossroads. No time like the present, then, to distribute awards and look at...

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—...

Marc Trestman received a lot of praise for his decision to go for it on fourth-and-1, and he should.
After a surprising 24-21 comeback win over a Bengals team intent on stealing the Lions’ crown for stupid and undisciplined play, Jay Cutler...

That was Jay Cutler when it mattered against Minnesota on Sunday.
That will be Jay Cutler after this season ends if he keeps this up.
The Bears needed a drive like they did several minutes earlier when Matt Forte had the ball ripped out of...

The rain had escalated near Lake Michigan. Of course it had.
Late in the fourth quarter, at the end of a gloomy afternoon, a full day's mist had turned into a troublesome shower, just another hindrance for the Bears to deal with on a Sunday filled...

Get ready to see a different side of the Bears' Jay Cutler, according to his wife, Kristin Cavallari.

Marc Trestman’s play-calling looked scared in the second half Sunday. The Bears' rookie coach looked like he was hoping and praying the clock would run out while his team still had the lead against the desperate Steelers.
This from a coach who has...

Yep, it's almost over.
No, not the Bears' season. Only the most pessimistic fan would fear the worst from a 3-0 team.
Rather, "Breaking Bad" has just one more episode remaining to incinerate our nerves before its five-season run ends Sept. 29. And...
