The Bears weren’t ready to start the game. Again.
They were undisciplined. Again.
They were mistake-prone. Again.
They couldn’t stop the run. Again.
That’s on the coach. A lot of the Bears’ inexplicably awful performance in...

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.

The New York Yankees’ Derek Jeter is normally working around this time every year, but due to his team’s failure to make the playoffs, “The Captain” had time to visit Chicago this week.
Jeter was spotted Wednesday having lunch at...

Among the many horrible beatings Jay Cutler has taken as quarterback of the Bears, the worst came in New York against the Giants in 2010. Cutler was sacked an NFL record nine times in a single half before being knocked out.
That's knocked out as in...

I'm giving the Bears the benefit of the doubt and trust they realize the Steelers remain an NFL franchise. It's my civic duty to remind Bears fans of it.
All I've heard this week is how dreadful the Steelers are. How could they be anything but after...

OK, so it wasn’t going to be easy for the Bears this season, but yeesh, did it have to be this awful?
The Bears lost both lines of scrimmage, lost the ball, lost control of things the second quarter, and that’s how you lose an ugly...

Isn’t this where we came in with Devin Hester?
Isn’t this the kind of guy we saw eight seasons ago when he pantsed the NFL with kickoff and punt returns that were, well, ridiculous, as Jeff Joniak said?
Hester is back to returning kicks...

Charles Tillman's departure from the 2013 season feels like the final, wretched piece in an unnatural, reverse transformation. Think of a butterfly rewinding backward into a larvae or caterpillar state until you have the pupa that is the Bears devolved...

Whenever Bears tight end Martellus Bennett gets in front of an audience, the man who nicknamed himself "The Black Unicorn" goes for laughs so naturally that you expect him to remind everybody to tip the wait staff.
Asked about a sore shoulder Sunday...

You know what the worst thing is about watching the Super Bowl?
Yes, that wretched spinach-artichoke dip that always looks as if someone scraped used tissues into an over-safe serving dish, but that’s not what I’m talking about here.

There’s a lot of vitriol aimed at the Bears offense after Lovie Smith’s team embarrassed itself against a bad Minnesota bunch. I get it. Mike Tice’s offense ranks worse than Mike Martz’s, and how stupid is that?
Heck, the offense...
