Carolina at Chicago Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET, at Soldier Field, Chicago - TV: FOX; DirecTV: 704 *TV announcers: Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston, Tony Siragusa *Keys to the game: The Panthers' offensive line isn't opening enough lanes for a triumvirate of running backs that have been successful in previous seasons -- DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert. With that group averaging 68.1 yards per game, QB Cam Newton is asked to do a lot on his own on third downs. Carolina converts just 31.7 percent and the Bears are one of the NFL's best in third-down defense. Chicago can be methodical moving the ball behind a beastly offensive line, and the Bears have had little first-quarter success. The Panthers placed CB Chris Gamble on injured reserve and must assign safety help against Brandon Marshall. As a result, the front seven gets the difficult responsibility of contending with RBs Matt Forte and Michael Bush without a safety net. Secure tackling is mandatory, but...

Video: Brandon Marshall lectures Stephen A. Smith on religion and Tim Tebow

It always comes back to Tim Tebow doesn’t it? I am the first to admit that the way sports are covered now is different than it was ten or even five years ago. People are interested in the Sports Entertainment side as much as the Xs and Os these days. Something though, I just feel like Allen Iverson and want to scream………. “WHAT ARE WE TALKIN BOUT!!!” What does...

Warren Moon says criticism of Cam Newton is unfair, hints of racism

Cam Newton is going through some growing pains in his second year as an NFL quarterback. Yes I know it seems like the struggles are in reverse, as he had plenty of success as a rookie, and now is finding things difficult. Cameron like many other quarterbacks has a mentor, or someone he feels he can relate to. During Newton pre-draft training, and possibly before, Newton struck...

Carolina Panthers: Cam Newton Not To Blame For Dreadful Season

Let’s face it -- NFL quarterbacks take the hit when the team loses but they also get the glory for the wins no matter how close the margin. For the Carolina Panthers the emergence of Cam Newton last season was in a sense, a breath of fresh air.With the up and down play of Jake Delhomme for many seasons to see a young, physical, athletic talent like Newton had the organization...

Carolina Panthers fire GM Marty Hurney

Last night during his post game press conference, Panthers quarterback Cameron Newton was frustrated and had no answers for his teams constant struggles. Newton was so befuddled, that he offered up a suggestion box to anyone that could help figure out how to right the wrongs. I think Panthers owner Jerry Richardson may have been the first to slip a suggestion in that box, because...

Lions offense struggles in loss to Bears

CHICAGO (AP) -- There was a big gasp going through the stadium as Jay Cutler writhed in pain on the field. He got up and the defense provided a big lift. Cutler returned after bruising his ribs, and Brian Urlacher made a key fumble recovery to help the Chicago Bears beat the Detroit Lions 13-7 on Monday night for their fourth straight win. It was certainly not an easy night for...

Chicago Bears: In the Discussion For NFC’s Best?

After I wrote yesterday about how it appears to be the Houston Texans and everyone else in the AFC, over on the other side, the NFC is becoming a bloodbath. The Packers are still the Packers, Atlanta is undefeated, San Francisco has a defense that any team would be envious of and the Giants look every bit capable of repeating last season’s success. But after improving to 5-1 last...

Bears 13, Lions 7

CHICAGO -- With many people believing Chicago's defense had become too old, the Bears juiced up their offense this year and made it look as if they were going to change a style of play that was decades old. But these are the Bears we're talking about, and change comes slowly. Apparently, so does the aging of their defense. The Bears' not-too-old defense shut down...

Whenever the Detroit Lions play the Chicago Bears, there is guaranteed to be some hard hits that result in many bumps and bruises. And I don’t just mean to the players on a physical front. I mean bruised egos as well. That is what happens when two rivals play each other with a lot at stake. Last night was no different when the Bears defeated the Lions on Monday Night Football,...
