(Eds: Updates with player quotes.) By ANDREW SELIGMAN AP Sports Writer Marc Trestman wasn't about to wax poetic.
He makes his debut as an NFL coach when the Chicago Bears host the Cincinnati Bengals, and to say he's come a long way is no exaggeration.
After years as an assistant in the league and on the college level before heading to the CFL, Trestman finally has his opportunity. Just don't expect him to get all sentimental when he walks into Soldier Field on Sunday.
''I would think it's going to be all business,'' Trestman said. ''I just can't see it being bigger than that - focus on the football team and my job during the course of the game. I'm certainly very appreciative going out there being the head coach of the Chicago Bears on Sunday. There's no doubt about it. But my focus is to continue to prepare this week and go out and do my job on Sunday.''
The Bears hired Trestman to replace the fired Lovie Smith, hoping...

Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall returned to practice on Monday after missing some time due to a check up on his surgically repaired hip.
“I’m always concerned about my body,” Marshall said Monday, via ESPNChicago.com. “It doesn’t matter if it’s a little scratch, I’m always concerned. So coming off my third surgery, structurally, everything is good. After a few...
The NFL season is just minutes away from beginning and ESPN’s 35 NFL pundits predicted the eight divisional winners, AFC and NFC wild cards, Super Bowl matchup, Super Bowl XLVIII champion and NFL MVP for 2013. Mike Ditka predicted the Chicago Bears to go all the way.
(I’m sure, cough, cough, there’s NO BIAS at work there. None whatsoever). Of the 35 pundits, Mike Ditka was...
The Chicago Bears have signed tight end Kyle Adams and waived offensive tackle Jonathan Scott.
According to the official website of the Chicago Bears, the team released former Pittsburgh Steelers tackle Jonathan Scott late Tuesday evening.
Now, before any of you get too excited about Scott possibly returning to Pittsburgh for a second tour of duty, you should know that he has recently had issues with one of his knee and just recently returned to practice. According to Brad...
The Chicago Bears have reworked Julius Peppers’ contract, dropping his 2013 salary down to $9.9 million, which will save the club nearly $1.8 million in cap space this year.
I totally understand why ESPN and now FOX Sports 1 want to have athletes on as studio analysts. People still remember these players from their playing days and will want to tune in to see their favorite former superstars talk about the game since they can't see them play it anymore.
They need to stop it. Too many of these guys just aren't any good at it.
Former Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher is on board with the growing list of people who feel that Texas A&M star Johnny Manziel needs to learn to keep a lower profile. On Saturday, Manziel provided the Aggies with a major spark against Rice after serving his one-half suspension. He came in and immediately electrified the […]
Maybe you think the Danica Patrick coverage on this site is excessive. To that I say, she is our “home team” NASCAR racer. Danica hails from Northern Illinois, and this site is based in Chicago. She is an Illinois woman. And this website puts Illinois first.
Besides unless Danica really does something newsworthy. Or something really newsworthy happens with Danica, you usually...
Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall says there are not structural issues with his hip heading into the regular season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Bears coach Marc Trestman says it’s possible both Jon Bostic and D.J. Williams will get reps at middle linebacker with the first team in Sunday’s regular season opener against the Bengals.
After a long offseason full of many changes (and many corresponding articles), I know that most of you here at WCS are somewhat sick of hearing my opinions on the Chicago Bears. So I thought we’d bring in a fresh voice, one who has more experience covering the team and has had the advantage of […]The post “Nothing stands out as a major weakness”: Patrick Sheehan of Midway...
