BEST OF MAXIM
With the Bears in a precarious playoff position at 7-4, and knowing quarterback Jay Cutler is out indefinitely because of a broken right thumb, not even coach Lovie Smith is taking them one at a time. ‘‘We feel like we need to win out,’’ Smith said at his news conference Monday at Halas Hall...
Complete this sentence in one word; Mike Martz is a __________ offensive coordinator. If you picked a word that rhymes with pity that was my thought exactly and since we are in agreement it’s all the more reason that the Chicago Bears should gladly part ways with their offensive coordinator at the end of the season.

Sebastian Janikowski kicked a team-record six field goals and the Raiders took advantage of three interceptions from Chicago's Caleb Hanie to beat the Bears 25-20 Sunday.
Will Kyle Orton be returning to Chicago as a starting quarterback? I think so. Will Caleb Hanie be able to improve upon his performance of a week ago? He has to.
