Mike Tice probably is more popular than any offensive coordinator in Bears history.
Of course that could change Sunday on the Bears' first possession against the Colts, which also will be Tice's first chance in the job.
Though the Bears don't have a...

Pardon me if I'm a smidge disjointed with this one. I have had no experience writing about a Bears offense with players at the skilled positions who are capable of taking a team to a Super Bowl.
And I have no memory of a Bears defense that appears to...

On Thursday, Josh McCown was a hero.
On Friday, he was holding a large garbage bag full of whatever belongings had been in his Halas Hall locker.
The reason McCown no longer is a Bear is he is neither as good as Jason Campbell nor as young as Matt...

Houston Texans defensive end turned outside linebacker Mario Williams will be the marquee free agent this offseason not named Peyton Manning. (Interesting side note: The Texans drafted Williams No. 1 overall in part due to Manning’s presence in...

Dave Toub was forced to wonder how it would shake out at this time a year ago when the Bears' top six tacklers on special teams all were headed to unrestricted free agency.
He's in a similar position again as five of the top eight core players, based...

Not everyone is upset with the Detroit Lions’ Ndamukong Suh these days. The Bears’ Amobi Okoye joined Suh -- who was ejected from Thursday’s game against the Green Bay Packers for stomping on an opposing player -- during his night out in...

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...

The Bears didn't just announce to doubters they're to be taken seriously in the NFC this season. They screamed it.
A 30-12 dismantling of the Falcons in the season opener Sunday at Soldier Field was as much an affirmation as it was a victory. They took...

The Bears defense took one look at the new and improved Falcons’ offense, and then destroyed it.
The Bears sized up quarterback Matt Ryan and his new rookie receiver and his established star on the other side, and blew them up.
Blew up all the...

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...
