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'...

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...

I doubt anybody describes Bears general manager Phil Emery as dull today.
This is how a new GM gets his point across clearly, by pulling off the type of trade that drops jaws and potentially changes the balance of power in the NFC. This is when you can...

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...

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,...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.
