    No, wait, balance doesn't mean a bad passing game and a bad running game
    Brian Urlacher created another turnover with another spectacular diving grab of an Aaron Rodgers pass. Miraculously, the Bears still had a chance. Urlacher gave the Bears possession at their 45 down 10 with 9:27 to go. The Bears might not have deserved...
  • Just when the Bears looked stable along the offensive line . . .

    Just when the Bears looked stable along the offensive line . . .
    The Bears point out that this season’s 4-3 record matches last season’s mark at the open week. The implication is they won five in a row and seven of their last nine to win the NFC North last season and feel they can do something like that...
  • Offense anemic as Bears fall to Chiefs

    Offense anemic as Bears fall to Chiefs
    A report before Sunday's game said Mike Martz will not return next season as the Bears offensive coordinator. If a painfully bad 10-3 loss to the Chiefs at Soldier Field weighs in the final decision, perhaps he won't. But what matters now is the Bears'...
  • Hanie has ability to make most of opportunity

    Hanie has ability to make most of opportunity
    A chance encounter in his hometown of Dallas before Super Bowl XLV put Caleb Hanie in front of Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway. A bit awestruck, the suddenly relevant Bears quarterback listened as Elway offered words of encouragement for Hanie's play...
  • The Bears season in a splint

    The Bears season in a splint
    It’s not a question of whether Jay Cutler’s thumb is broken. It’s a question of how badly the Bears’ season is broken. Maybe it’s me, but I don’t see Caleb Hanie winning games the way Cutler did Sunday against San...
  • Hanie still has to make plays, people

    Hanie still has to make plays, people
    Brian Urlacher said Caleb Hanie’s athleticism allows him to move around the pocket and even suggested “a little (Tim) Tebow offense maybe.’’ Yes. Well. I’m still hoping for a little NFL offense. Urlacher mostly talked about...
  • Firing on Bears who need to be fired

    Firing on Bears who need to be fired
    The part of the Bears’ season with any meaning is over. Which means the Bears’ firing season can begin. Can we start with Caleb Hanie and Jerry Angelo? Pretty please? In a game where the Bears’ starting quarterback threw three...
  • Bears analysis: Still searching for a 1,000-yard receiver

    Bears analysis: Still searching for a 1,000-yard receiver
    5th in a 10-part series How dysfunctional are the Chicago Bears at wide receiver? In two seasons under pass-happy Mike Martz, they couldn’t come up with a 1,000-yard receiver. If that’s not a sign something is wrong, it ought to be. Martz,...

    Bears head into uncertain offseason after ending 5-game skid
    MINNEAPOLIS — Now the hard work begins. The Bears ended a five-game losing streak that crippled a promising season, edging the NFC North cellar-dwelling Vikings 17-13 on Sunday at the Metrodome and setting the stage for a pivotal offseason....
  • Wanted: A GM who doesn't want to be a real GM

    Wanted: A GM who doesn't want to be a real GM
    The Bears should’ve made their fans happy with the firing of general manager Jerry Angelo on Tuesday. He made a spectacular move in trading for Jay Cutler, then failed to surround him with the tools needed to make him the franchise quarterback that...
  • NFL playoffs reveal more reasons to fire Lovie

    One thing we learned from this weekend’s NFL playoff games: Lovie Smith was lucky he didn’t get the Jerry Angelo treatment. Angelo was fired after somebody finally looked at his lousy draft history and failure to insure the most important...
