In retrospect the question was more rhetorical than anything, a reaction that popped into my head late Monday night as Lovie Smith tried processing the punishment the 49ers had just inflicted on the Bears. What makes you think the offensive line will...
In 143 starts over 12 NFL seasons, former Bears right tackle James "Big Cat'' Williams never saw anything like it. When Williams witnessed Bears quarterback Jay Cutler bump left tackle J'Marcus Webb during a sideline rant in Thursday night's 23-10...
BOURBONNAIS — Create matchups. Work the ball inside of numbers. Target the inside vertical seams. Those are some of the opportunities you have in the passing game when the tight end plays a role in the game plan. This Bears offense has a new...
As we continue to peel away the calendar pages — only 12 days left — until the Bears arrive in Bourbonnais, the assignment is determining the 10 most important players in 2012. Let's first establish the criteria for "important." To me, it...
Contrary to prevailing thought, the Bears offensive tackle who represents the key to protecting Jay Cutler this season does not write poetry. He tells story problems. "We had an all-out blitz,'' Gabe Carimi recalled Monday of a play against the...
If you want to know what Mike Tice's Bears offense will look like in the fall, it isn't a crystal ball you need. It's a time machine. Set at 2003 or so. From 2002 to 2005, Tice was head coach of the Vikings. He didn't coordinate the offense or call...

On the day after the Texans beat the Bengals last Jan. 7 in the AFC wild-card round for the franchise's first postseason victory, the Web site http://www.FireGaryKubiak.com came down as promised. "We always said if they won a playoff game we'd go away...
If Mike Tice went home last Sunday night looking for consolation after a game-winning two-minute drive saved the day for his sleep-inducing offense in a victory over the Panthers, he didn't find it from his wife. "Like Diane said, 'What did you do in...
Though nobody requested one, coach Lovie Smith said he wasn't about to offer an apology after his Bears rallied to stave off the Panthers for their fifth straight victory. I'm wondering if the coach is listening to his team's critics more than he ever...
It still makes no sense that the Bears ignored their starting offensive line in the first phase of free agency or the draft. It makes less sense when you believe the Bears are a Super Bowl contender the way I believe. It’s even more mind-...
