One of the big questions facing the Bears in Oakland today is whether quarterback Caleb Hanie can be a fit in the Mike Martz offense. But Martz says that’s not as big an issue as you might think. Instead, Martz says, he can tailor an offense for the talents of an individual quarterback. The Greatest…

Caleb Hanie completed 18 of 36 pass attempts for 254 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in a 25-20 loss to Oakland on Sunday.
His completion percentage was 50%, while his QB rating was 56.9.
All three of his three interceptions came in the first half, luckily the Bears defense held the Raiders to only six points off those mistakes by Hanie.
His last interception came on...
You want to know why it must suck for Kurt Warner to live in this insane Arizona contemporary house with over 11,000 square feet and more swimming holes than the Florida Keys? Because he can’t throw massive keggers and have bikini chicks frolicking on his patio. Remember, dude is a Bible thumper. So, with religion tying him down, it’s time to sell this pad for $5,000,000. And...
If Chicago Bears fans are frustrated with Caleb Hanie's three interception performance on Sunday, they should refocus that exasperation elsewhere. You can't blame Hanie, the backup quarterback to injured Jay Cutler, for playing like a backup to an injured Jay Cutler. It's not his fault he's Caleb Hanie, he can only do the best he can do. Brian Urlacher didn't...
Right or wrong, the majority of folks in this country don't like having other people's faith jammed down their throats. Even an outspoken Christian like Kurt Warner knows that. That's why the retired Warner, 40, offered a bit of advice to Tim Tebow, who's been at the center of an ongoing debate around the country, both for his merits as a football player and his ubiquitous...
Lovie Smith and the Chicago Bears said all the right things after Jay Cutler went down with a broken right thumb. They expressed confidence in Caleb Hanie, and the backup quarterback boldly proclaimed he had been waiting for this opportunity.
One day after a shaky trip to the Black Hole, that faith in Hanie was still there.
''He'll play better this coming week than...
During Monday Night Football last week, Ron Jaworski briefly speculated that Tyler Palko was following the Kurt Warner archetype, of a guy who bumbles around for a while before finally getting his shot in the NFL. As Jaws pointed out, Kurt Warner didn't get his first NFL start until he was 28 years old—just like Palko. More »
Playing against a fill-in quarterback making his first career NFL start, the Oakland Raiders managed to win despite struggling to punch the ball into the end zone. 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.
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.
Caleb Hanie did anything but embarrass himself in relief of Jay Cutler, but the Bears still lost in Oakland, 25-20.
Hanie finished with 254 yards and 3 TDs, but also had 3 INTs. He also added 50 yards rushing. Matt Forte had 59 yards on 12 rushing attempts, but Marion Barber actually did him one better, running for 60 yards on 10 carries. Johnny Knox was outstanding...
The Chicago Bears will look to continue their winning ways with Caleb Hanie starting at quarterback against the Oakland Raiders
Jay Cutler’s injury and his replacement by Caleb Hanie will diminish the Chicago Bears but will not result in their collapse, à la the Indianapolis Colts without Peyton Manning.
