  • Trestman's big problem: Cutler isn't the only big problem

    Trestman's big problem: Cutler isn't the only big problem
    Is Marc Trestman the right guy to coach the Bears? Who knows? 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....
  • Lovie Smith out after 9 seasons as Bears coach

    Lovie Smith out after 9 seasons as Bears coach
    The epitaph for Lovie Smith's tenure as head coach of the Bears could read, "He couldn't fix the offense." For all the good things Smith did in his nine years in Chicago, his undoing was his inability to take care of the side of the ball in which he...
  • 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:...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • Bears eliminated from playoffs with loss to Packers

    Bears eliminated from playoffs with loss to Packers
    GREEN BAY — It wasn't too long ago, back when the Bears were trying to make a go of it with Rex Grossman, that a high-ranking team official said just wait, the balance of power in the NFC North would shift once Brett Favre retired. Well, the future...
  • On your Martz, get set, go!

    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...
  • Dan Pompei's Bears mailbag

    Dan Pompei's Bears mailbag
    How badly do you think Jay Cutler is missing Greg Olsen? -- Brian Ausmus, from Twitter Given that Earl Bennett has been injured and Roy Williams has been ineffective, I think Olsen could have had an impact on the last two games. Olsen could have provided...
  • Bears get little right in loss to Packers

    Bears get little right in loss to Packers
    If the Bears were looking for something to hang their hats on Sunday, the Packers locker room was full of players saying the 89-yard punt return for a touchdown by Johnny Knox was the greatest play they've ever witnessed. Too bad a holding penalty...
  • Bears depend upon the ineptitude of strangers

    Bears depend upon the ineptitude of strangers
    The Bears played a bad game. Lucky for them, they faced a worse team. The ineptitude of the Panthers was just about the only thing that kept the Bears’ season from ending. They couldn’t afford to fall to 1-3. I don’t think they could&...
