Me, I’m rooting for the lawyers in this one. If you are a Bears fan, a Bears player or a Bears wonk, I suggest you do the same, and here’s why:
If the NFL and the players can’t strike a deal to end the lockout by July 21, then it...

The NFL’s annual meat market has come and gone, leaving fans of watching grown men running around in spandex on an obstacle course channel-surfing for "American Gladiator" reruns.
Thanks to the non-stop coverage of the combine, we have a ton of...

At Michael McCaskey’s final NFL owners meeting as chairman of the Bears, NFL owners voted to move up kickoffs and neuter one of the Bears’ greatest weapons.
If you ever wondered how little clout the Bears have league-wide, no matter...

When Aaron Rodgers embraced Jay Cutler near the 50-yard line at 10:44 p.m. Monday night, he must have been wondering why he was congratulating Cutler instead of it being the other way around.

It makes less sense when you believe the Bears are a Super Bowl contender the way I believe.
It’s even more mind-...

Sorry, but this should’ve been easier.
The Bears should’ve handled the Chargers with a lot less worry.
The Bears shouldn’t have allowed it to become a game into the fourth quarter.

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...

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...

Brian Urlacher said Caleb Hanie’s athleticism allows him to move around the pocket and even suggested “a little (Tim) Tebow offense maybe.’’
