Tribune staff reporterThey were not specifically trying to save their coach's job. Nor were they trying to prove anyone wrong, shut anyone up or lay anyone out. They were certainly not attempting to move down in the draft order, but they did not particularly care if they...
Tribune staff reporterFlailing against a backdrop of green and gold, floundering in a sea of uncertainty, the Bears dropped their heads in unison Sunday at Soldier Field, humbled once again by the Green Bay Packers and by circumstances they can no longer control. It was their...

Tribune staff reporterThe shaving cream said it all. As wide receiver Eddie Kennison stood surrounded by microphones and cameras in the Bears' locker room, teammate Marcus Robinson crept around behind him and gave him an entire face full of shaving cream. The Bears had not...
Tribune staff reporterThe 0-2 start is not the shocking part. An 0-2 start was considered, discussed, even justified in advance. Two road games against tough division opponents. Tampa in high humidity. Yep, an 0-2 start, under certain circumstances, was understandable, maybe...
