PLAYERS: Jay Cutler
TEAMS: Chicago Bears
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By ANDREW SELIGMAN AP Sports Writer The idea that the Chicago Bears' offense will match their jaw-dropping defense this season just might be a little far-fetched. Jay Cutler says it's ''not going to happen.'' The quarterback says the offense is ''eight, nine years behind those guys'' because the Bears have been running the same defense ''a long time.'' For all the hype coming into the season, the offense remains a work in progress. That hasn't stopped the Bears (7-1, No. 3 In AP Pro32) from grabbing the NFC North lead heading into Sunday's showdown with AFC South leader Houston. It just hasn't happened quite the way they envisioned. While the defense continues to dominate, an offense that many thought had the potential to be explosive isn't quite living up to the hype.

The Chicago Bears have completed the first eight games of the season and it's time to take a look at the team and grade each position group.  There were high expectations for the Bears offense heading into the 2012 season with the addition of Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, the long term extension of Matt Forte and the addition of Michael Bush.  The offense was expected...

NFL Picks, 2012 season, Week 10

They’ve been criticized for playing a soft schedule, which so far has included only one opponent with a winning record at the time of their game. Their quarterback was demonized for shoving an offensive lineman during a nationally televised loss to Green Bay. But since that week two loss, the Bears are 6-0 and they looked like the real deal Sunday in putting a 50-spot up against...

Chicago Bears: Week 10 NFL Power Rankings (#1)

Last week: 3 (+2) Record: 7-1 Back to this. I really broke my own rule by overreacting to the Bears’ near lose to the lowly Panthers and dropping them down even though I’ve never been sold on Atlanta. The Bears’ huge blowout win helped me see the light. Jay Cutler is now 12-1 in his last 13 games, which would be 12 in a row if you exclude their Thursday Night loss in Green...

Texans set to limit Brandon Marshall

I am not one to read to much into what a coach says, as far as game plans are concerned, during the week, but it is hard to ignore these comments from the Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. “We (will) double cover him every play. That’s our plan. We’re going to double cover him every play” While it seems odd that Phillips would disclose his approach against an elite...
