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....

If the NFL really wanted to back up all its big talk about parity, it would’ve made Josh McCown quarterback the Packers.
Sorry, but I wasn’t impressed, no matter what the final yardage was. McCown threw two interceptions when it mattered, and...

Any chance the Bears go after Plaxico Burress? -- @chifan4life, from Twitter

If the Bears have any hope to pass the Packers, pass is the operative word.

Isn't that every boy's dream?
Through the course of offseason workouts, Tice has been able...

Jay Cutler was sacked six times Sunday, which usually is grounds for putting the offensive line in solitary confinement with no visitation privileges.
But a review of the tape revealed the big boys didn't play all that poorly. In fact, the linemen...

There was bright sunshine at Soldier Field on Sunday, as much as we've seen at any game this year.
It was considerably darker in the bowels of the stadium in the back room where injured players are laid on tables and poked and prodded, tested, X-rayed...

You now can purchase a "Peanut Punch" T-shirt.
You could have heard Charles "Peanut" Tillman talk about his penchant for forcing fumbles on his regular guest spot on WSCR-AM 670 Tuesday. Or you can hear him talk about it on ESPN (Rachel Nichols...
