If you live outside the Chicago city limits, you probably can’t smell it, but there’s a whole lotta stink emanating from Soldier Field these days. The Chicago Bears train wreck continued careening out of control Sunday afternoon in front of another sellout crowd of 62,534. Why these people continue to pay the fourth-highest ticket [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
If the Chicago Bears had any real intention of participating in the 2012 NFL playoffs then a win on Sunday at home against the NFC North leading Green Bay Packers was a must. A Bears loss would not only concede the division title to the Packers but it would also give the Minnesota Vikings the opportunity to slide into the sixth seed in the NFC playoffs with only two games remaining...
Brian Urlacher has ripped Chicago Bears’ fans in the past. He has openly discussed his feelings toward the fans and the media, and that only increases after a tough loss. Dropping a home game late in the season against the Green Bay Packers in a key NFC North divisional battle certainly constitutes a tough loss.
Any guess as to which two sorts of people Urlacher was ripping after...
The Chicago Bears started out 7-1 and they are now 8-6. Head Coach Lovie Smith, whose seat is getting hotter each week, just doesn’t know what to say.
The Bears spiral could stop Sunday, when they play the Arizona Cardinals, it really is a must game now. A lot of teams who are actually winning games keep passing the Bears.
The Green Bay Packers claimed the division yesterday...
Brian Urlacher has seen his Chicago Bears lose their last 3 games and 4 out of their last 5. Urlacher has been sidelined with a hamstring injury and has apparently been paying a lot more attention to the media and the fans.
CT - Appearing Sunday night with sports anchor Lou Canellis on WFLD-Ch. 32,
Urlacher bristled when told that fans and the media were being critical...
Video: This would never happen to Jay Cutler
As Chicago's slide continued Sunday with a home loss to NFC North rival Green Bay, boos rained down on the Bears from frustated fans. And linebacker Brian Urlacher didn't like it. The Bears fell to 8-6 with their fifth loss in the past six games and are in danger of missing the playoffs after seemingly being a shoo-in a few weeks ago. Urlacher, the 34-year-old veteran...
The rapid descent of the Chicago Bears from playoff contender to also rans highlights the agenda on the next edition of “Bears Claws.” Join the guys as they dissect Sunday’s disappointing 21-13 loss to the Packers, search for answers, and breakdown the playoff picture. They’ll also debate the future of Bears head coach Lovie Smith. This week’s special guest is [...]
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) Lovie Smith isn't going to get caught up in any outside discussion about his job security with the Bears scuffling along and in danger of missing the playoffs after a 7-1 start.
Chicago's coach says his only focus is on trying to get a wild-card spot by beating Arizona this weekend and then winning the regular-season finale at Detroit.

The Chicago Bears came into the 2012 NFL Season with a goal, to once again become Super Bowl Champions. The Bears missed the playoffs last season due to a handful of injuries and a poor offense. They lacked an elite play making WR and a consistent Quarterback.
So the Bears made a statement in the past NFL off-season. They went out and snagged...
Like death and taxes, the Packers' defensive dominance of Jay Cutler is practically a sure thing. The Bears gave up two first-round picks, a third-round pick and Kyle Orton in hopes of getting their championship quarterback. Instead, Cutler is 1-7 against Green Bay.
Other than Brandon Marshall, no other Chicago wide receiver caught a pass against the Packers. The lack of secondary production has become a trend for the Bears’ passing attack this season.
Running back Michael Bush was placed on season ending injured reserve on Tuesday with a ribs injury. He becomes the eighth Bear to be placed on injured reserve this season.
The injury is being referred to as cartilage damage in his ribs rather then broken ribs.
The Bears announced the signing of running back Kahlil Bell as well on Tuesday.
Bush hurt his ribs in the Bears’ 23-17...
