Getting rid of Lovie Smith does not make the Bears a better team. Only replacing him with a better coach would. Jon Gruden? Hearing he's not coming down from the press box. Bill Cowher has gotten too comfortable wearing makeup. Mike Holmgren? He...
PHOENIX — Perhaps they should rename them the Chicago Vultures. Somewhere along the way, the Bears have become scavengers, sustaining themselves on what other teams have left behind. If you had to project the Bears' 2013 starting lineup in...

Dressed comfortably for a long Thursday night in blue jeans and a Bears jacket, team Chairman George McCaskey entered Halas Hall and promptly placed a stack of 2013 pocket schedules on the receptionist's desk. How misleading. Nothing else the Bears...
