  • Lovie Smith out after 9 seasons as Bears coach

    Lovie Smith out after 9 seasons as Bears coach
    The epitaph for Lovie Smith's tenure as head coach of the Bears could read, "He couldn't fix the offense." For all the good things Smith did in his nine years in Chicago, his undoing was his inability to take care of the side of the ball in which he...
  • Attention, Bears offense: This is your last bad defensive foe this year

    Attention, Bears offense: This is your last bad defensive foe this year
    Jay Cutler was asked to explain his NFL-best fourth-quarter ability. “I don’t know.’’ Cutler said Wednesday. “I’m getting lucky, I guess.’’ No, you’re getting behind, and that has to stop right now....
  • You can fire Lovie right now

    You can fire Lovie right now
    Lovie Smith has to go. Now. If I'm Phil Emery, I wouldn't have let him on the plane home after that 21-14 disaster in Minnesota. Smith’s team wasn't ready to start a must-win game. Smith's defense wasn’t ready to start a must-win game....
  • Bears light on stars in 31-3 loss in exhibition opener

    Bears light on stars in 31-3 loss in exhibition opener
    The Bears decided to keep their new offense mostly under wraps until the second week of the exhibition schedule. Quarterback Jay Cutler and running back Matt Forte were held out of Thursday's opener at Soldier Field against the Broncos, perhaps to...
  • The Cutler Rule: Winning is the only thing and anything goes when you do

    The Cutler Rule: Winning is the only thing and anything goes when you do
    As long as the Bears win, Jay Cutler can do what he wants. As long as Cutler throws for 300 yards and two or three touchdowns, he can stiff any coach he likes. That’s what I’m getting in my emails and on my Twitter account. That’s what...
  • Bears position analysis: Running back

    Bears position analysis: Running back
    There cannot be a player on offense who is more excited about the new Chicago Bears coaching staff than Matt Forte. Forte always has considered himself a dual threat out of the backfield and new coach Marc Trestman has a proven track record for making...
  • When do we start blaming Cutler?

    When do we start blaming Cutler?
    Here’s the thing about Jay Cutler’s throw that was sort of aimed at Devin Hester during yet another miserable Cutler performance in yet another aggravating loss to the Packers: It was so bad and such a turning point that even Lovie Smith,...
  • Now starting at quarterback for the Bears: Jay Zambrano

    Now starting at quarterback for the Bears: Jay Zambrano
    Jay Cutler, meet Carlos Zambrano. That’s the deal, Bears fans. Connect the dots, and Cutler teammate D.J. Moore is confirming what you thought about your quarterback: He’s a hothead who has never won anything despite having the talent to...
  • Bears defense is failing, and that's on Lovie

    Bears defense is failing, and that's on Lovie
    There’s a lot of vitriol aimed at the Bears offense after Lovie Smith’s team embarrassed itself against a bad Minnesota bunch. I get it. Mike Tice’s offense ranks worse than Mike Martz’s, and how stupid is that? Heck, the offense...
  • Cutler making it harder to believe in Cutler

    Cutler making it harder to believe in Cutler
    I want to believe Jay Cutler. I want to believe IN Jay Cutler. Problem is, both feel impossible when it’s important. I want to believe the Bears quarterback when he said he “can’t put a definite reason on why’’ he...
  • Cutler in command in victory over Redskins

    Cutler in command in victory over Redskins
    Jay Cutler sat out the Bears' first exhibition game but did not look the least bit rusty in his debut Saturday night at Soldier Field. The quarterback was comfortable and in command of the new offense against the Redskins, setting the tone early in a 33-...
