SOUTH BEND, Ind. — After seeing Manti Te'o shave about one-tenth of a second off his 40-yard dash time Tuesday, hearing the linebacker sing down a hallway inside the Guglielmino Athletics Complex confirmed the skip in his step. Relieved, Te'o...
Unable to find the remote control recently in my Brooklyn hotel room between Bulls playoff games, I took it as a sign to educate myself on Thursday's NFL draft by watching a show about the Bears that popped on the television. Well, technically, the TV...
The epitaph for Lovie Smith's tenure as head coach of the Bears could read, "He couldn't fix the offense." For all the good things Smith did in his nine years in Chicago, his undoing was his inability to take care of the side of the ball in which he...
Three days later, Brandon Marshall understandably felt compelled to elaborate on Sunday's emotional postgame comments demanding accountability, strong words about threatened jobs that carried all the way into the Bears front office. "Maybe that was a...

Strength and conditioning in the NFL is radically different from what it was 28 years ago, when Rusty Jones first started working for the Bills. Jones, the Bears' retiring director of physical development, is a big reason. He was the first NFL...
