  • Bears depend upon the ineptitude of strangers

    Bears depend upon the ineptitude of strangers
    The Bears played a bad game. Lucky for them, they faced a worse team. The ineptitude of the Panthers was just about the only thing that kept the Bears’ season from ending. They couldn’t afford to fall to 1-3. I don’t think they could&...
  • Wait, I think the Bears just wasted another timeout

    Wait, I think the Bears just wasted another timeout
    I think I know why the Chicago Bears blow so many timeouts on offense: Jay Cutler has to get the play from the guy on the sideline, but first, the guy on the sideline has to get it from Mike Martz in the booth, but before that, Martz has to get it from...
  • Everybody understands Cutler except the Bears

    Everybody understands Cutler except the Bears
    Are they deaf up there at Halas Hall, too? We knew the Bears were blind when it came to quarterbacks. They couldn’t draft and develop a great one, so they tried trading for one, and the Bears’ care and feeding of the most important position...
  • Attention, yammering Bears: The same record couldn't be more different

    Attention, yammering Bears: The same record couldn't be more different
    Excuse me, but I’m sick of hearing hear how the Bears are a victory over Tampa Bay away from having the same record they took into the bye last season. The subtext seems to be this: Look at the way they stumbled to start last season and still won...
  • 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...
  • Doesn't sound like Roy Williams gets it

    Doesn't sound like Roy Williams gets it
    Bears starting wide receiver Roy Williams said he knows¬†“if I mess up or anything, it’s going to be blown out of proportion.’’ He also said he’s not perfect. Oh, and he also said something like the Bears have five or six...
  • 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...
  • Selling Cutler on Trestman's offense

    Selling Cutler on Trestman's offense
    Interesting sales job for Phil Emery: The head coach chosen by the general manager to lead the Chicago Bears into the modern NFL hasn’t coached in the modern NFL for eight seasons Interesting sales job for Marc Trestman: Convincing Jay Cutler that...
  • Bears defense is failing, and that's on Lovie

    Bears defense is failing, and that's on Lovie
    There’s a lot of vitriol aimed at the Bears offense after Lovie Smith’s team embarrassed itself against a bad Minnesota bunch. I get it. Mike Tice’s offense ranks worse than Mike Martz’s, and how stupid is that? Heck, the offense...
  • Who fills the Urlacher void? Cutler, that's who

    Who fills the Urlacher void? Cutler, that's who
    If Brian Urlacher can’t play this season, then Jay Cutler ends up with even more pressure, and I’m not talking about another missed block by J’Marcus Webb. This Bears offseason was all about the offense. I mean, just look: Cutler was...
  • New math: Better Bears offense + worse Packers defense = revenge

    New math: Better Bears offense + worse Packers defense = revenge
    Maybe it’s just me, but I was totally unimpressed with the Packers defense. Completely and absolutely unimpressed. It was bad last season. It looked bad to start this season. The 49ers gashed the Packers for 186 yards rushing and 377 yards total,...
