  • 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...
  • Bears' offensive line does OK in loss to Giants

    Bears' offensive line does OK in loss to Giants
    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The last time the Bears stumbled out of here in a stupor, their quarterback had a woozy noggin' and their offensive coordinator had a place in NFL history following the most stubborn play-calling imaginable. There was no...
  • 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...
  • As if Lovie didn't have enough sideline gaffes

    As if Lovie didn't have enough sideline gaffes
    And now we come to Lovie Smith’s newest sideline brain cramp: The Bears coach was too lame to remove either Jay Cutler or Mike Martz from Sunday’s pantsing in New Orleans. I thought Smith had learned. I thought wrong. On Monday, Smith said...

  • Bears depend upon the ineptitude of strangers

    Bears depend upon the ineptitude of strangers
    The Bears played a bad game. Lucky for them, they faced a worse team. The ineptitude of the Panthers was just about the only thing that kept the Bears’ season from ending. They couldn’t afford to fall to 1-3. I don’t think they could&...
  • Wait, I think the Bears just wasted another timeout

    Wait, I think the Bears just wasted another timeout
    I think I know why the Chicago Bears blow so many timeouts on offense: Jay Cutler has to get the play from the guy on the sideline, but first, the guy on the sideline has to get it from Mike Martz in the booth, but before that, Martz has to get it from...
