There cannot be a player on offense who is more excited about the new Chicago Bears coaching staff than Matt Forte.
Forte always has considered himself a dual threat out of the backfield and new coach Marc Trestman has a proven track record for making...

You go into a game with the chance to own a piece of the best record in the league, and you come out of it with a concussed starting quarterback.
A concussed quarterback with a history of concussions, don’t forget.
Oh, and a self-inflicted loss at...

The Philadelphia Eagles haven’t been the team we expected (I’m no longer using the ‘D’ word when talking about the Eagles, and you’re welcome). They are 3-5 at the midway point of the season, and their margin for error to...

Grumpy Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Monday had to answer a few questions about the use of Ray Rice in Sunday’s 22-17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Based on the line of questioning from reporters, I’m guessing at least one of those guys has...

Caleb Hanie was bad. Awful. Sometimes egregiously horrible.
But then, what’d you expect from a guy who hadn’t thrown a pass all season?
Hanie threw three interceptions and so many other bad passes against the Raiders. High, wide, low, you...

You know what’s worse than the Bears’ offensive line? The Cowboys’ offensive line, that’s what.
Hard to believe, I know. It’s not often the Bears' offensive line stinks less than the opponent’s, but just look:

It still makes no sense that the Bears ignored their starting offensive line in the first phase of free agency or the draft.
It makes less sense when you believe the Bears are a Super Bowl contender the way I believe.
It’s even more mind-...

Sunshine has not been difficult to find at the oceanfront site of the NFL owners meetings, but Lovie Smith brought more of it Wednesday in a breakfast with the media.
The Bears coach was particularly optimistic about the addition of wide receiver Brandon...

One good thing about Jay Cutler’s near-Super-Bowl-dream-ending injury: The Super Bowl dream remains alive, even if it now might be wrapped in Kevlar and popping Vicodin.
Just because Jason Campbell is not Caleb Hanie -- I believe he’s legally...
