  • Cutler stays up, but Bears' offense a downer

    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...
  • Big mouth, little production -- WIlliams just doesn't get it

    Big mouth, little production -- WIlliams just doesn't get it
    Muhsin Muhammad said famously that Chicago was where wide receivers go to die. Tribune Bears beat monster Brad Biggs brought up that line in this piece about Roy Williams, who is the first Bears receiver to be presented as a No. 1 guy since Muhammad....
  • Bears offense shows some smoothness in 14-13 loss

    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

    Fantasy Fodder: A six-pack of fantasy football sleepers
    My apologies for interruptions in this week's blog schedule. I was actually doing real reporting for a change. (I know, crazy talk.) But I still had time to stay on top of my many fantasy football leagues. I completed another draft last week, and I have...
  • Doesn't sound like Roy Williams gets it

    Doesn't sound like Roy Williams gets it
    Bears starting wide receiver Roy Williams said he knows¬†“if I mess up or anything, it’s going to be blown out of proportion.’’ He also said he’s not perfect. Oh, and he also said something like the Bears have five or six...
  • Bears abandon run and get run out of Superdome by Saints

    Bears abandon run and get run out of Superdome by Saints
    NEW ORLEANS — Last year, the Bears waited until their off week at midseason to have a meeting about how the offense was being run. Is Week 3 a good time to schedule one for 2011? Offensive coordinator Mike Martz brought one of his pass-happy...

    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...
  • As McCaskey talks, Bears lose a weapon

    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. Perfect. If you ever wondered how little clout the Bears have league-wide, no matter...
  • 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...
  • 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...
