Oakland-raiders-chicago

QB Jay Cutler trucked a defensive back, Devin Hester is back to being downright scary as just a kick returner, and the defense still has the knack for turnovers that turn into points. The Bears rise to No. 6 in the Profootballtalk.com power rankings is an indication the Marc Trestman era is in full swing.

Bears’ Blitz key in rout of Steelers

“The more things change, the more they stay the same” – Chicago Bears fans in reference to the Bears’ defense in 2013. At its surface, that sentiment would appear to hold up.

Change is upon us. The 2013 Chicago Bears are not who we thought they were.

Is Julius Peppers going to get sacked by the salary cap?

With the prevalence of non-guaranteed contracts and a hard salary cap in the NFL, salary cap considerations seemingly always take precedence over sentimentality.   Julius Peppers is undoubtedly the Chicago Bears finest defensive lineman since Hall of Famer Richard Dent.  In fact, Peppers’ 30.5...

Henry Melton: Chicago Bears defensive tackle out for the year with torn ACL

The Chicago Bears are 3-0 and appear to be in complete cruise control atop the NFC North right now. But it’s not all good news in Chicago, as the team lost a huge piece for the season this week. On Moday afternoon, Pro Bowl defensive tackle Henry Melton was diagnosed with a torn ACL in his left knee and will miss the rest of the 2013 season. Melton was a huge piece to the Bears’...

Chicago swarms its way to perfect 3-0 start

At the rate the Chicago Bears' defense is scoring, the offense might not be able to keep up. At the moment, that's hardly a problem. Major Wright returned an interception for a touchdown and Julius Peppers rumbled 42 yards after recovering Ben Roethlisberger's fumble for another score as the Bears remained unbeaten with a 40-23 win over the reeling Pittsburgh Steelers...

Bears fear ACL tear for DT Melton

Jay Cutler trucked the crap out of Steelers DB Robert Golden (GIF)

Jay Cutler Issues A Sorry, Not Sorry Over Laying Big Hit

During a critical drive in the second half of the Bears’ win in Pittsburgh, Jay Cutler scrambled for a first down, ending his run by driving the shoulder of his throwing arm into Steelers defensive back Robert Golden. The hit wrecked Golden’s sh*t, but a quarterback throwing his body around like that is bound to elicit concern from those who would like to see Cutler play a full...
