  • Smith says addition of Marshall, Bush will improve Bears

    Sunshine has not been difficult to find at the oceanfront site of the NFL owners meetings, but Lovie Smith brought more of it Wednesday in a breakfast with the media. The Bears coach was particularly optimistic about the addition of wide receiver Brandon...
  • Bears knew of weekend incident, latest case of wrong place, wrong time

    Just two days before the Bears made official a trade to acquire him, Brandon Marshall found himself in a familiar situation -- the wrong place at the wrong time. Perhaps that is how the talented yet often troubled wide receiver can best explain what...
  • 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...
  • The Bears season in a splint

    The Bears season in a splint
    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...
  • Hanie has ability to make most of opportunity

    Hanie has ability to make most of opportunity
    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...
  • Hanie still has to make plays, people

    Hanie still has to make plays, people
    Brian Urlacher said Caleb Hanie’s athleticism allows him to move around the pocket and even suggested “a little (Tim) Tebow offense maybe.’’ Yes. Well. I’m still hoping for a little NFL offense. Urlacher mostly talked about...
  • 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...
