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...

Jay Cutler was asked to explain his NFL-best fourth-quarter ability.
“I don’t know.’’ Cutler said Wednesday. “I’m getting lucky, I guess.’’
No, you’re getting behind, and that has to stop right now....

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...

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...

Here’s the thing about Jay Cutler’s throw that was sort of aimed at Devin Hester during yet another miserable Cutler performance in yet another aggravating loss to the Packers:
It was so bad and such a turning point that even Lovie Smith,...

The Choice (and remember, death is not an option): Mike Martz’s end-around to Dane Sanzenbacher with the game still in doubt or Mike Martz’s bootleg for Jay Cutler with the game already decided?
But wait, other than those two curious calls, I...

Is Marc Trestman the right guy to coach the Bears?
I mean, the Bears still don’t know if Emery is the right guy to be general manager, especially after the Bears retarded Emery’s plan by forcing him to keep Lovie Smith as coach....
