You can question the decision by Lovie Smith to go for it on fourth-and-1 in the second quarter and pass on a field goal, something the coach did himself. But following the collapse Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field in a 23-17 overtime loss to the...
SAN FRANCISCO — Jay Cutler picked a great game to sit out. It wasn't such a great game for the Bears defense to sit out. The same defense that had been making Cutler's life easy by taking the pressure off and giving him comfy leads did no such...
