Kansas City Chiefs
Whoever starts at quarterback for the Chiefs won't be able to withstand heavy pressure from the Bears
A look at four keys for the Bears to beat the Kansas City Chiefs.
1. Send the attack dogs after the quarterback
No matter who lines up under center for the Chiefs on Sunday against the Bears, whether it be the abominable Tyler Palko or the former Bear Kyle Orton, the Bears need to unleash the dogs on them because the defense is not going to get burned by either player. The Chiefs run game has been struggling lately as they use a multi-back approach between Thomas Jones, Dexter McCluster, and Jackie Battle, and none of the three are all that impressive. The Chiefs are going to have to throw at some point in this game and if Rod Marinelli dials up some pressure, whether it be with extra blitzers, line stunts or different combinations along the defensive line, the Bears will make life miserable for Palko or Orton, resulting in an array of sacks, hurried throws and — if fortunate — ...
BEST OF MAXIM
We know what kind of defense the Bears are going to play and their next three opponents – Kansas City, Denver, Seattle – will have very little success moving the ball up and down the field. We know what kind of special teams the Bears have and there isn’t another team in the NFL (and... Read more »
As the Bears prepare to host the Chiefs Sunday at Soldier Field, they're expecting quarterback Caleb Hanie to pick up right where he left off in the second half of last week's loss to the Raiders.
I will discuss whether or not Caleb Hanie can keep the Bears going until Jay Culter comes back.
chiefs AT bears Time: Noon. Line: Bears by 7. Records (overall/ATS): Chiefs 4-7/6-5; Bears 7-4/6-5. Fast fact: Caleb Hanie had a 97.7 rating in the second half vs. the Raiders last week — 107.8 without two spikes. Outlook: Barring inclement weather, Hanie should be much improved in his second NFL...
With Week 12 on the horizon, there were two players I was interested in seeing most: Matt Leinart and Caleb Hanie. Both the Texans and the Bears are in the thick of a playoff hunt and lost their starting quarterbacks last weekend.
Leinart would be stepping in for Matt Schaub, but with the support of the top-ranked running game and a defense that is giving up the fewest total yards...
The Bears’ offense under Caleb Hanie had some good moments and a number of less-than-stellar moments. We got to the film room to discuss what the tape reveals about Chicago’s offensive performance.
It was back home for the Raiders to face the Chicago Bears. The Bears were riding a five game winning streak coming into Oakland. However, they were to play their first game without their starting quarterback, Jay Cutler. With Caleb Hanie getting his first start, it was up to the Raiders to take advantage and come away with the win.
Even with Hanie at quarterback, the Bears were...
The Chicago Bears indicated they still have faith in their No. 2 quarterback despite a difficult performance last week. Their next opponent doesn't appear to feel the same way.
While Chicago sticks with Caleb Hanie, the Kansas City Chiefs might start former Bear Kyle Orton over a struggling Tyler Palko on Sunday at Soldier Field.
The Bears remain in position for a wild-card...
