Muhsin Muhammad said famously that Chicago was where wide receivers go to die.
Tribune Bears beat monster Brad Biggs brought up that line in this piece about Roy Williams, who is the first Bears receiver to be presented as a No. 1 guy since Muhammad....

The game against the Lions on Sunday could have been the last one for a Bear who has been around forever and has his name listed prominently in the team record books.
But the Bears decided they wanted him back.
Whether or not the Bears will take 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...

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.

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.

Brian Urlacher created another turnover with another spectacular diving grab of an Aaron Rodgers pass. Miraculously, the Bears still had a chance.
Urlacher gave the Bears possession at their 45 down 10 with 9:27 to go. The Bears might not have deserved...

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...

Roger Goodell just gave the Bears a season.
No, the NFL Commissioner didn’t send out a press release. And no, he did not appear on NFL Network to explain how and why. But when Lord Roger Voldemort sent his Death Eaters to New Orleans in the wake of...

PALM BEACH, Fla. — Sunshine has not been difficult to find at the oceanfront site of the NFL meetings, but Lovie Smith brought more of it Wednesday in a breakfast with the media.
The Bears coach was particularly optimistic about the addition of...

The NFL’s competition committee had an idea that the Bears should like but don’t.
The committee recommended increasing offseason rosters from 80 players to 90 as a way of developing more talent. Nothing wrong with that, right? A chance to...
