  • If Martz wants Hanie, he has to go through Cutler first

    If Martz wants Hanie, he has to go through Cutler first
    Caleb Hanie was understandably respectful Wednesday. Mike Martz knows better than he does, Hanie said of the plays he is asked to execute, three of which turned into interceptions. Jay Cutler, meanwhile, was remarkably protective of the player...
  • Quick someone tell Martz to Hanie-proof the Bears

    I love the job Mike Tice has done --- has usually done --- but the offensive line coach's blocking schemes and players are absolutely useless against 3-4 schemes. Or if it's not the schemes, then it's the way they're taught because the linemen don't...
  • Angelo should retire before Hanie's offense gets him fired

    Angelo should retire before Hanie's offense gets him fired
    The Bears’ offensive game plan was nearly perfect against Denver on Sunday. The Bears did everything to prevent Caleb Hanie from doing something stupid. Mike Martz figured it out. After saying he wanted to be more aggressive, the pass-happy...
  • The lesson from Josh McHanie

    The lesson from Josh McHanie
    I’ve been waiting for a “gotcha,’’ but I guess it’s true and official: Bears coach Lovie Smith named Josh McCown to lose to the Packers on Christmas night. Smith admitted he hasn’t seen a lot from McCown, and what&...
  • Why Cutler should root for a longer lockout

    Why Cutler should root for a longer lockout
    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...
  • No, it's the Bears' drafted players who really matter

    People are talking up the Bears’ assault on undrafted free agents on Tuesday, and I hope some of those scouting reports offered by Trib football master Dan Pompei are right. But the more important issue is signing and coaching those first three...
  • Doesn't anyone like Jay Cutler anymore?

    Be afraid, Jay Cutler. Be very afraid. The Bears’ latest reported moves, or latest reported attempts at moves, might put your life and suspect knee in greater jeopardy. First came word from Trib Football Monster Brad Biggs that the Bears were...
  • Here's why Kreutz wouldn't matter

    Here's why Kreutz wouldn't matter
    I loved the way Olin Kreutz played. I loved the way players spoke of his leadership. I hated the way Kreutz left the Bears. Bad guessing and hamhandedness seem to abound, but look, losing Kreutz doesn’t matter if Mike Martz was still going to...
  • Why Tice sounds crazy

    Why Tice sounds crazy
    J’Marcus Webb has yet to play 16 NFL games. He’s the Bears’ starting left offensive tackle. Chris Williams has played enough games for me to think he’s a bust. He’s the Bears’ starting left guard. Roberto Garza has...
  • Warning: Martz is talking

    Warning: Martz is talking
      Mike Martz spoke Wednesday. Be afraid. Be very afraid. The Bears'’ offensive coordinator said he believes the Bears “should be able to continue to improve from where we left off and make a quantum leap.’’ Stop right there. You...
  • Bears' offense fails to impress in 10-3 victory

    Bears' offense fails to impress in 10-3 victory
    It took the Bears just more than a week of training camp to name the starting offensive line. We will see if one exhibition game is all it takes to send the coaching staff back to the drawing board. There probably will not be a knee-jerk reaction...
