Most of the players on the Bears roster were acquired by Jerry Angelo to be coached by Lovie Smith. Now that neither is part of the organization anymore, many of those players might not be feeling quite as secure. The fates of many familiar faces in the...
For the first time since the 1985 season, the Bears landed two defensive linemen in the Pro Bowl as Julius Peppers and Henry Melton were selected as all-stars. Peppers led the defense with 111/2 sacks, his most since joining the club in 2010, and...

A trip to the Pro Bowl was not the only reward Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings received at the end of the 2012 season. He is also in line for a bump in pay. Jennings, who signed a two-year contract to return to the club last March, triggered a...
If the Bears are going to make the playoffs, or even win another game, it’s pretty basic: Their stars have to play like stars. I heard that idea from a hockey coach decades ago during the playoffs, except he phrased it, “Our best players...

Most fans go to Bears summer training camp hoping to be entertained by spectacular offensive plays. Jay Cutler lofts a deep pass to Brandon Marshall, Devin Hester or Earl Bennett and the crowd goes wild. Matt Forte bursts through a hole and races 35...

The vision for this Bears offense was to be able to allow opposing defenses to pick their poison. That vision became reality in Jacksonville as the Bears were proficient at gashing the Jaguars with whatever the Jaguars concentrated the fewest...
Too old. Can't rush the passer. Weak sister to the offense. Well, maybe the Bears defense isn't all that after all. At least not against the fresh meat the Colts served up on a glorious Sunday afternoon. The defense might not look quite as spry...
What more can this Bears defense do to carry the ballclub? The Bears rank fifth in total defense and first in interceptions with 19. They have returned seven interceptions for touchdowns. With Jay Cutler out with a concussion, the already stout and...

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...
The bench players that general manager Phil Emery added to the Bears in the offseason did more than improve depth. They improved the front line too. There is little doubt that more intense completion at cornerback, defensive end, defensive tackle,...

After the way the 49ers manhandled the Bears on Monday night in San Francisco, Lovie Smith's defense should prep for the Vikings to feature Adrian Peterson in the running game Sunday at Soldier Field. It will face downhill schemes that test the gap...
