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 — ...

Week 12 test drives: QBs or clunkers?

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...
