If a career falls in Lake Forest and no one around cares to hear it … Brian Urlacher's extraordinary career with the Bears ended with a resounding whimper Wednesday as an afternoon news release confirmed what long has been expected — that...
Bears general manager Phil Emery and new head coach Marc Trestman celebrate birthdays just a day apart from one another. That's one of the nifty — dare we say synergetic? — connections between the two men. Sadly, they weren't born in late...
The Bears have been running up a down escalator on offense for so long, they apparently can't help but feel they're on the verge of reaching the top. Maybe that explains the delusion of adequacy that prevented them from seriously upgrading the offensive...

The Jay Cutler-J'Marcus Webb controversy may wind up being a bigger problem for the Rams than it has been for the Bears. The key figures involved in last Thursday night's incident, celebrity quarterback Cutler and social media butterfly Webb, always...
It's understandable if the hype of a potential Super Bowl matchup one week, followed by a prospective NFC championship showdown the next, seems highly relevant midway through a season. But really, it's only hype. Getting to the real NFC championship...
