As a rule, the Bears' defensive scheme may be the most predictable in the NFL. But coordinator Rod Marinelli and the boys stepped out of character a bit Monday. They blitzed on nearly 23 percent of Tony Romo's dropbacks, mostly in the first half. It was...
On Monday, what stood out about the Bears' performance on Sunday is the pass protection held up both in terms of recognition and execution against an aggressive, accomplished blitzing team. Arizona defensive coordinator Ray Horton sent more than four...

The wide receivers took the bows and the cornerbacks got the high-fives, but the Bears won their opener Sunday because they beat the Colts in the trenches. The play of the Bears offensive line was particularly eye-opening. And no one played better on...

The Bears are a 4-1 team, a good one that has produced expected results over the first five weeks of the season. Outside of the loss in Green Bay when the Bears suffered a complete offensive meltdown, Lovie Smith's team beat the Colts in Andrew Luck's...
You could make the argument that every one of us is in a race against time, but it might be a little more difficult to sustain that view of the Bears defense these days. From aging and slowing to experienced and eminent, the revival of the franchise's...
The popular joke when the Bears traded for Jay Cutler in 2009 was that they fleeced the Broncos by including two first-round draft picks because such selections were worthless in Chicago. The trade simply spared the Bears the indignity of making even more...
The Bears were facing one of the best special teams units in the NFL on Sunday, but special teams played a significant role in the Bears' victory. On the blocked punt that Corey Wootton returned for a touchdown, the Bears surprised the Titans by sending...
The Bears didn't need Jay Cutler to be on his game to win Sunday, and it's a good thing. Cutler usually is a pretty accurate passer, but his throws frequently were not where they should have been against the Rams. He completed 54.8 percent of his...
