    Cutler stays up, but Bears' offense a downer
    On his first chance in the exhibition season, Roy Williams dropped a third-and-10 pass that would’ve picked up 16. While he gets into football shape, can he also get into catching shape? No, wait, I think one of the guys with a reputation for drops...

    Bears offense shows some smoothness in 14-13 loss
    NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Be careful drawing much in the way of conclusions out of preseason play. Remember, the Bears were 0-4 a year ago and played poorly in getting to that record. But the offense clicked months ahead of the pace of a year ago and...

    Fantasy Fodder: A six-pack of fantasy football sleepers
