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...
It's rare that a game's first play from scrimmage is the most critical, but it sure seemed that way in Minneapolis on Sunday. Many Bears had a chance to stop or at least slow Adrian Peterson on his 51-yard run. Defensive end Corey Wootton had...
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...
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...
It didn't take Aaron Rodgers long to notice Tim Jennings wasn't playing. The Packers quarterback went at Jennings' replacement at left cornerback, Kelvin Hayden, and Hayden's replacement at nickel back, D.J. Moore, repeatedly. Neither made a play in...

For those who remember the bitter local rivalry that once existed between the Bears and Cardinals when both played in Chicago, Sunday's game in Glendale, Ariz., conjures up thoughts of what could have been a monumental civic clash. With the Bears in...
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...
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...
