  • 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...
  • 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...
  • Good news: No Cutler F-bombs at new QB coach

    Good news: No Cutler F-bombs at new QB coach
    Jeremy Bates figures to be the Bears’ passing game chief with the title of quarterbacks coach, sort of opposite the way that Phil Emery seems to be the chief scout with the title of general manager. The most obvious thing that makes this a terrific...
  • 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&...
