If the Bears can’t play the Cardinals again, then they get perhaps the best opponent for their half of a must-win/then-pray Sunday to decide their postseason fate.
I mean, do you know how bad the Lions are?
Bad enough to lose 38-10 to the...

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...

In trying to pare down the list of coaches who should replace Lovie Smith, I have two top choices, and neither is Bill Cowher.
It’s not that I don’t like or respect Cowher, it’s that I’m looking for the Bears to make a...

You don't need the NFL. You only think you do.
With the lockout getting uglier and optimism over a new collective bargaining agreement precipitously falling, I've continued to explore the possibility of a fall without professional football. You know...

I agree with Devin Hester. This is ridiculous.
The NFL voting to move kickoffs up to the 35-yard line makes more than Bears games less exciting. It sucks the drama out of the most unpredictable play of the game for every team and everybody who loves...

From Henry Jordan to Lawrence Taylor, Shaun Gayle to Todd Kelly, Antoine Bethea to Mike Tomlin, Peninsula athletes have collected a fair share of Super Bowl rings.
As the NFL playoffs kick off Saturday, the question becomes whether that collection will...

When Aaron Rodgers embraced Jay Cutler near the 50-yard line at 10:44 p.m. Monday night, he must have been wondering why he was congratulating Cutler instead of it being the other way around.
Rodgers had outdueled his counterpart from south of the...

Me, I’m rooting for the lawyers in this one. If you are a Bears fan, a Bears player or a Bears wonk, I suggest you do the same, and here’s why:
If the NFL and the players can’t strike a deal to end the lockout by July 21, then it...

I doubt anybody describes Bears general manager Phil Emery as dull today.
This is how a new GM gets his point across clearly, by pulling off the type of trade that drops jaws and potentially changes the balance of power in the NFC. This is when you can...

For a team whose makeshift offense begs for a makeover, the Bears signing free-agent defensive end Mario Williams would be like a guy buying a big-screen plasma TV to watch from the futon in his studio apartment.
The Bears would be better off spending...

Remember last year when it was all about accountability at Halas Hall?
It was public and loud and demanded like never before. Guys were getting cut all the time, even after wins, I believe.
Then the Bears lucked their way to the NFC Championship Game...
