EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — It was an uncharacteristically bad night for Charles Tillman. The 31-year-old, Pro Bowl cornerback made some rookie mistakes in the third and most meaningful exhibition, but at least it was the preseason. Tillman was...

Tribune ReporterTen thoughts on the Chicago Bears after their 20-17 exhibition victory Friday night over the New York Giants in East Rutherford, N.J. 1. Lovie Smith always has said that it's hard to make final roster cuts, with plenty of hard decisions in the process....
It will be interesting to see how the Bears address safety depth before the 8 p.m. Friday deadline for final cuts. The position is rather thin. Starting free safety Chris Conte remains sidelined with a dislocated right shoulder. Backup Brandon Hardin...
If you're passing on Friday night's Bears-Giants game, I don't blame you. Summer is evaporating and it makes sense to enjoy these final weekends before the leaves change colors. For the Bears, however, this glorified scrimmage is the biggest day since...

Truth be told, not much is revealed about a football team in padless practices in May and June. About 75 percent of what your eyes tell you is an outright lie. And another 20 percent is half truth. But one thing the eyes are not deceiving us about is...
