Assuming you are in a six- or eight-team league -- and not one of those screwy leagues that ends in Week 17 -- the fantasy football playoffs have arrived. If your team made the playoffs, give yourself a loud slap on the back. (If your team did not make...
I love the job Mike Tice has done --- has usually done --- but the offensive line coach's blocking schemes and players are absolutely useless against 3-4 schemes. Or if it's not the schemes, then it's the way they're taught because the linemen don't...
A report before Sunday's game said Mike Martz will not return next season as the Bears offensive coordinator. If a painfully bad 10-3 loss to the Chiefs at Soldier Field weighs in the final decision, perhaps he won't. But what matters now is the Bears'...
This was one of the gimmes on the schedule. The Chiefs were one of the three remaining cupcakes that would help get the Bears to 10 wins and a likely playoff spot. Instead, this was pathetic. This was comical. Embarrassing. A joke. A disaster in so...
I’d love to pound Mike Martz for arrogant myopia, from that silly throwback screen in the red zone to keeping the backup quarterback out of game-plan meetings. But Caleb Hanie and at least one of his receivers were worse than the offensive...

OAKLAND, Calif. — If you're looking for a positive following the first NFL start by Caleb Hanie, it wasn't a meltdown like the Bears have seen before when they've turned to reserve quarterbacks. It wasn't Todd Collins. Not even close. It wasn't...
Caleb Hanie was bad. Awful. Sometimes egregiously horrible. But then, what’d you expect from a guy who hadn’t thrown a pass all season? Hanie threw three interceptions and so many other bad passes against the Raiders. High, wide, low, you...
The quarterbacks didn't want to make it into their duel but that's what Sunday's meeting at Soldier Field came down to — Jay Cutler and Philip Rivers squaring off in a showdown of gunslingers. After the Bears prevailed 31-20 over Cutler's former...
PHILADELPHIA — Sloppy performances and poor communication plagued the Bears in their two previous road games. They struggled to get out of their own way in losses in New Orleans and Detroit, setbacks that put them in a hole during the first half of...
Jay Cutler wasn't particularly sharp as a passer against Philadelphia on Monday night. But Jay Cutler was particularly brilliant when it came to being a quarterback. Being a leader. Being a winner. Yeah, Cutler underthrew some deep passes. But when it...
LONDON — The Bears talked about it so much you hate to wonder where they would be if they didn't reach 4-3 before their week off. Fortunately, they don't have to consider that now because the goal coach Lovie Smith set forth after a dismal effort...
