Tribune staff reporterYou could hardly blame them. It's pouring rain. Their team hadn't shown the ability to move the ball without turning it over, much less score. From the opposing sideline, Mike Ditka, for crying out loud, was glowering at his team to close it out. None of...

Tribune staff reporterIt was a miserable Sunday at Soldier Field. Penetrating cold, gusting winds, pelting rain turning to sleet. The kind of day that makes football teams look bad. Only in this case, while the Bears were huddled against the elements, slipping, bobbling and...

Tribune staff reporterJim Flanigan's jaw was clenched so tightly, his teeth threatened to shatter under the pressure, and you wonder how much a six-year Bears veteran can take. You wonder how many more of these any of them can absorb and dissect and move past when every week,...
Tribune staff reporterYes, those were your Chicago Bears at Soldier Field on Sunday. Essentially the same guys in the same uniforms you saw taking a knee at the two-minute warnings and running their tailbacks off left guard on third-and-11. The same franchise that has drummed...

Tribune staff reporterThe assumption is that something other than their own excellence was responsible for making the Philadelphia Eagles look like a playoff team Sunday. The question is, did Cade McNown's debut as starting quarterback slow up the Bears just enough to stumble...
Tribune staff reporterThis was a loss of a supposedly bygone era, when humiliation could spring up on any given Sunday, morale always a fragile proposition and the whole lot if it's serving as more evidence of a disintegrating season. If the Bears' 48-22 loss to the...
Tribune staff reporterUnofficially, the 2000 Bears season expired when still another Shane Matthews pass was deflected at the line of scrimmage Sunday, this one on fourth-and-3 with 1 minute 40 seconds remaining. But this was a game and a season that died many deaths. It...

Tribune staff reporterThe return of wide receiver Marcus Robinson on Saturday, complete with two touchdown passes from Cade McNown on the Bears' first two possessions, was overshadowed by a defensive performance marked by some of the same problems that caused the Bears to rank...
