Hester returns to wreaking havoc for Bears

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By ANDREW SELIGMAN AP Sports Writer Devin Hester appears to be back to his havoc-wreaking ways for the Chicago Bears. Ineffective a year ago, the three-time Pro Bowl pick returned five kickoffs for a team-record 249 yards in last week's win over Minnesota. He'll try to keep it up against Pittsburgh on Sunday. It's been...

Chicago Bears: Bears starting to flex offensive muscles

Devin Hester is back, and the Chicago Bears are flying high When Chicago Bears return specialist Devin Hester was given a shot at wide receiver, he was mediocre at best. Granted, he did not have an offensive coordinator who utilized him correctly, but he was just not cut out for that position. For the life of me, I still can’t believe at one point he was our number one wideout...

Martellus Bennett: Marc Trestman reminds me of Willy Wonka

Chicago Bears tight end Martellus Bennett had some nice and rather unique words for his head coach Marc Trestman. “I think me and Coach Trestman are probably the only two people who understand each other,” Bennett said during an appearance on ESPN 1000, via the Chicago Tribune. “I always say Coach Trestman reminds me of the first Willy Wonka. Not the Johnny Depp one; the Johnny...

Chicago Bears: 2013 Week 3 NFL Power Rankings (#9)

Last week: 10 Beating the Vikings by 1 isn’t that impressive, but they did it despite losing the turnover battle, something that only happens 20.9% of the time. The NFC is tough, but the Bears have a chance to be right in the playoff hunt. They aren’t dominating the turnover battle like they were last year, as could be expected, but they have an improved offense thanks to a very...

Martellus Bennett Dealing with Sore Shoulder

Bears TE Martellus Bennett pulled in seven passes for 76 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against Minnesota, but also came out of the game with a sore shoulder.Fantasy Spin:Bennett is expected to play in Week 3. He already has three touchdowns in two games after scoring five all last year. QB Jay Cutler should continue to look his way in the red zone and he's a viable target after...

Jay Cutler winning over the NFL Punditocracy

Chicago Bears Quarterback Jay Cutler was the subject of discussion on CBS Sports Network’s “Monday Morning Quarterback” yesterday. Here’s where I would say that annoying and stupid acronym ICYMI (In Case You Missed It), but I don’t have to. Look at this chart with primetime viewership of sports networks. The ranking in order is: ESPN, ESPN2, NFL Network, MLB Network, Fox...

Martellus Bennett Fully Practices Thursday

Bears TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) fully participated in Thursday's practice.Fantasy Spin:Bennett was limited Wednesday but was never expected to miss Sunday's game. The tight end has been a favorite receiver of Jay Cutler in the red zone so far and has three TDs in two games.

Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari guest star on “The League”

“The League” has done a fantastic job getting big name guest stars to come on their show the past few years and this week they had Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and his wife Kristin Cavallari.  I was surprised that Cutler looked so comfortable and performed so well on TV, especially because most of “The League” is unscripted.  The episode itself was hysterical and...

Bears at Steelers: Four Bold Predictions for Sunday's Game

The Chicago Bears are coming off of an incredible comeback win against the Minnesota Vikings and will be prepared for Sunday Night’s matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers are starting their season off at 0-2, which is unheard of since coach Tomlin took over as head coach.  With the Steelers' loss against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night, there is a strong...

McClellin, Wootton putting in extra work

Bears defensive ends Corey Wootton and Shea McClellin have been working overtime with assistant defensive line coach Mike Sinclair in an effort to improve the pass rush.

The Bears are truly Trestman’s team

Even though it took 32 years, Marc Trestman never gave up his goal of becoming an NFL head coach. That type of resiliency has rubbed off on the Chicago Bears this season.

Martellus Bennett says his coach reminds him of Willy Wonka

Chicago Bears wide receiver Martellus Bennett paid his head coach, Marc Trestman, a relatively odd and interesting compliment on Tuesday, likening Trestman to Willy Wonka, specifically the Willy Wonka portrayed by Gene Wilder in the 1971 film. "I always say Coach Trestman reminds me of the first Willy Wonka. Not the Johnny Depp one. The Johnny Depp one was really cool, but...

NFL Power Rankings: Week 3

Peyton won the Manning Bowl, Jay Cutler led the Bears to their second straight comeback win, and the 49ers were embarrassed by the Seahawks. All this and more reflected in week 3 of the NFL power rankings. 1) Denver Broncos (Last week: 1) No reason to move them from the top spot as they handled the […]

Bears owe hot start to . . . Wonka?

Chicago Bears head coach Mark Trestman is considered a passing genius. And through two games, he has Jay Cutler playing well and his team off to a 2-0 start. One of the biggest beneficiaries of Trestman's new offense is Martellus Bennett, who has 10 catches for 125 yards and three TDs on the season, including the game-winning 16-yard grab with 10 seconds to go in Sunday's...

Jay Cutler's Acting Debut

((HT: CSN Chicago)) The HQ knows what you're already thinking... What do you mean "acting...???" The Chicago Bears QB and his wife, Kristin Cavallari, appeared on the FXX Network show "The League." Evidence below... Your browser does not support iframes. The main question the HQ has, more than anything, is how do all these athletes end up in...
