  • 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...
  • 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...
  • 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&...
  • Sighting: Rapper Big Boi, Bulls' Taj Gibson at Jbar

    Sighting: Rapper Big Boi, Bulls' Taj Gibson at Jbar
    Following his Crown Royal party at Tesla Motors on Wednesday, Outkast rapper Big Boi hung out at Jbar at The James Hotel. The Bulls' Taj Gibson also stopped by the Crown Royal party and Jbar that night. NFL Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk and Bears...

    Chicago   0 3  7 11--21 Green Bay 7 7 14  7--35 First Quarter GB--Finley 2 pass from Rodgers (Crosby kick), 10:26. Drive: 9 plays, 80 yards, 4:34. Key Plays: Rodgers 11 pass to Finley on 3rd-and-3; Rodgers 32 pass to Grant; Rodgers 16...
  • Fantasy Fodder season preview: Ranking fantasy tight ends

    Fantasy Fodder season preview: Ranking fantasy tight ends
    There are very few slam-dunk picks in fantasy football. For years, owning LaDainian Tomlinson guaranteed you a spot in the playoffs. Peyton Manning has been an elite fantasy QB for more than a decade. And though he's now in the twilight of his career,...
  • Fantasy Fodder season preview: Ranking kickers and defenses

    Fantasy Fodder season preview: Ranking kickers and defenses
    I enjoyed writing the first four days of my Fantasy Fodder 2011 season preview. Today is not as exciting, though, because all that’s left are the kickers and the defense-special teams combinations. You guys know by now that you shouldn’t...
