The Jay Cutler-J'Marcus Webb controversy may wind up being a bigger problem for the Rams than it has been for the Bears. The key figures involved in last Thursday night's incident, celebrity quarterback Cutler and social media butterfly Webb, always...
In retrospect the question was more rhetorical than anything, a reaction that popped into my head late Monday night as Lovie Smith tried processing the punishment the 49ers had just inflicted on the Bears. What makes you think the offensive line will...

Shea McClellin wasn't born wearing shoulder pads, but he plays like it. That's why the Bears general manager Phil Emery made him his first draft pick ahead of Whitney Mercilus, Nick Perry, Chandler Jones, Courtney Upshaw or any other defensive end who...
If the Bears have any hope to pass the Packers, pass is the operative word. And there is no opportunity like right here, right now. Three hundred yards in the air should be easy for Jay Cutler and company with this group of gifted receivers. They...
Suspense surrounded Halas Hall last year over who would take the fall for the Bears squandering a 7-3 start and missing the playoffs. Who besides Mike Martz, that is, because in retrospect we practically blamed Martz for everything from causing too many...
The 49ers defeated the Bears every way a team can be beaten Monday night — power, speed and thought. Almost no one on the team did his job well enough for the Bears to win. Three aspects of the 49ers' victory stood out upon closer inspection....

The problem with the Bears offense in Thursday night's 23-10 loss to the Packers wasn't that pass rushers outnumbered pass protectors. It was that the rushers were superior to the protectors, and the extra blockers often were not where they were needed....
We have nine days to debate if the Bears offense can be as bad as Thursday night's debacle in Green Bay would lead one to believe. I'm going with yes, it can. For the record, I've not been pushing Lake Forest propaganda. Of the nine-man Tribune football...
GREEN BAY — It's one thing to block the Colts, without Dwight Freeney and with the comforts of playing at home. It's quite another to block the Packers, with Clay Matthews and the thunder that some 70,000 lathered-up Cheesies can create. The...
ALBANY, N.Y. — When the Giants look in the mirror, what do they see? Is it the team that was 7-7 late last season, fighting for postseason survival as its coach was in danger of being fired? Or is it the team that finished with a flourish,...
