  • Bears make opening statement with rout of Falcons

    Bears make opening statement with rout of Falcons
    The Bears didn't just announce to doubters they're to be taken seriously in the NFC this season. They screamed it. A 30-12 dismantling of the Falcons in the season opener Sunday at Soldier Field was as much an affirmation as it was a victory. They took...
  • Quarterback Marc Bulger retires after 9-year career

    Quarterback Marc Bulger retires after 9-year career
    he Ravens will have to find a new backup for Joe Flacco. Marc Bulger, 34, who was the Ravens' No. 2 quarterback, last year, has decided to retire after 11 NFL seasons and two Pro Bowls. A league source told The Baltimore Sun about Bulger's intentions...
  • Time to hear from the Bears' latest McChairman

    Time to hear from the Bears' latest McChairman
    If ever there was a time for George McCaskey to let everyone know who’s in charge of the Bears, this would seem to be it. If ever there was a time for the rookie chairman to make clear what his expectations are and how quickly he wants them met,...
  • A vote for giving the Bears more help

    The NFL’s competition committee had an idea that the Bears should like but don’t. The committee recommended increasing offseason rosters from 80 players to 90 as a way of developing more talent. Nothing wrong with that, right? A chance to...
  • Cutler sees what Lovie misses

    Cutler sees what Lovie misses
    Jay Cutler apparently is fed up with being run down. And thrown down. And beaten down and beaten up. And if the Bears quarterback had to pants his head coach to make things better, then fine, Cutler will offer cold-eyed honesty that ought to embarrass...
  • Bears' season all but over

    Bears' season all but over
    A week after being Tebowed, the Bears managed to get T-Jacked with their fragile season hanging in the balance. Minus quarterback Jay Cutler and running back Matt Forte, the Bears admitted their defense needed to step up and carry them. Brian Urlacher...
  • Bears smoke Seahawks, eye Packers

    Bears smoke Seahawks, eye Packers
    When Lovie Smith was hired as Bears coach seven years ago, he sounded like a man who had come directly out of a pep talk from the McCaskeys, who were tired of having their franchise humiliated for more than a decade by Brett Favre. Now Smith has a game...
  • Hanie can't pull off the miracle

    Hanie can't pull off the miracle
    A season in which the Bears benefitted from playing against third-string quarterbacks couldn't be saved by their own No. 3. But Caleb Hanie's gutsy performance in relief of an injured Jay Cutler and an ineffective Todd Collins was a reason why the...
  • Bio box: Temple tight end Evan Rodriguez

    Bio box: Temple tight end Evan Rodriguez
    On the field: The Bears have been in need of a pass-catching tight end since trading Greg Olsen last summer. Rodriguez is that, but the team hopes he also can block linebackers, seal the edge in the running game and be a vertical threat. Upside:...
  • Bears escape exhibitions unscathed

    Bears escape exhibitions unscathed
    This charade is just one reason NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell would like an 18-game regular season. The final exhibition game is an exercise based far more on how carefully a team can make the transition to the regular season in full health than it is...
  • How hopeless is it when Hanie's your best hope?

    How hopeless is it when Hanie's your best hope?
    This was one of the gimmes on the schedule. The Chiefs were one of the three remaining cupcakes that would help get the Bears to 10 wins and a likely playoff spot. Instead, this was pathetic. This was comical. Embarrassing. A joke. A disaster in so...
