    For those of you pining for last year's utterly futile Bears offense...
    The Bears’ offense had one -- count it, one -- drive. It came on their second possession. After that, pffft. Fifty-one minutes of pffft. Last season kind of pffft. I thought the Bears had learned something this year. I thought they had it...
  • Here's how the Bears have improved: I expected them to end this one earlier

    Here's how the Bears have improved: I expected them to end this one earlier
    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. Maybe that’s a reflection of how strong I think...
  • Sorry, Caleb, but if Orton shows up, he starts

    Sorry, Caleb, but if Orton shows up, he starts
    If “A’’ is Caleb Hanie and “B’’ is Kyle Orton, then I’ll take “C’’ --- none of the above. Neither should be starting for an NFL team that has Super Bowl hopes. Neither quarterback can win the...
  • Ex-Towson State linebacker Vitt named interim Saints coach

    Ex-Towson State linebacker Vitt named interim Saints coach
    Joe Vitt went directly from the football field at Towson State to his first job in the NFL as the strength coach of the Baltimore Colts in 1979. A little more than 30 years later, Vitt finds himself in the middle of one of the biggest stories in the...
  • Tice's exit would just add to the Bears' sitcom

    Tice's exit would just add to the Bears' sitcom
    If Mike Tice leaves to coach the Oakland Raiders,the Bears would have all kinds of bad news. Or, looking at it another way, the Bears would have all kinds of typical Bears news. The Bears thought they were looking for just a passing game coordinator/...
  • Hanie killed the Bears, but not all hope

    Hanie killed the Bears, but not all hope
    Caleb Hanie was bad. Awful. Sometimes egregiously horrible. But then, what’d you expect from a guy who hadn’t thrown a pass all season? Hanie threw three interceptions and so many other bad passes against the Raiders. High, wide, low, you...
  • Hanie's deal: Wise up or sit down

    Hanie's deal: Wise up or sit down
    I’d love to pound Mike Martz for arrogant myopia, from that silly throwback screen in the red zone to keeping the backup quarterback out of game-plan meetings. But Caleb Hanie and at least one of his receivers were worse than the offensive...
  • 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...
