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 Bears wrapped up their first minicamp of 2013 last week under new coach Marc Trestman. And while it is tough to evaluate and breakdown the pro game in shorts and helmets, here are five observations I took from the up-tempo practice sessions at Halas...

"Without family, close relationships, and people you enjoy being around, all the work in the world just isn't worth it.'' — Bears coach Marc Trestman, author of "Perseverance: Life Lessons on Leadership and Teamwork" Jerry Trestman never...

Of all the former Bears players Chairman George McCaskey could have compared Jay Cutler to the other day, he chose George Halas. Who last played in 1928. Who played end. Who never contributed to getting a head coach fired because, well, he was the...
