The Bears may appear to be going nowhere, but that doesn't mean Lovie Smith is headed anywhere. Smith effectively can seal another contract with a victory over the Packers on Sunday. Beating the Packers is important to Bears ownership, and Smith could...

There is no need for Phil Emery to be locked into hiring a head coach with an offensive background. But there is an overwhelming need for him to be locked into hiring someone who has foolproof answers on how to fix the offense. And that probably means...

Has Phil Emery shown his hand at all regarding his feelings for Lovie Smith? @Joey FAV, from Twitter Yes, he has shown his hand repeatedly. Emery has a lot of respect for Smith. And he wants Smith to remain as head coach of the Bears as long as Smith...

Phil Emery got so revved up that he forgot reality. No, wait, Emery didn’t get revved up at his introductory news conference. Emery seems incapable of getting revved up. So, maybe Emery was just so focused on offering snappy catchphrases about...
If Mike Tice leaves to coach the Oakland Raiders,the Bears would have all kinds of bad news. Or, looking at it another way, the Bears would have all kinds of typical Bears news. The Bears thought they were looking for just a passing game coordinator/...
When Jim Morrissey came to the Bears in 1985 as an 11th-round pick from Michigan State, he was surprised to receive No. 51, figuring it had been put away long before in honor of Dick Butkus. Then, a couple of months later Morrissey was sitting in the...
