The Bears cruised into the 2012 season’s halfway point by utterly eviscerating the Tennessee Titans in Nashville, 51-20. Titans fans came to watch a football game, and were instead treated to ritual sacrifice.
The Bears led 28-2 after their relentless first quarter defensive onslaught, a quarter which saw a blocked punt for a touchdown, a 46 yard pick-six for Brian Urlacher, and two very short touchdown drives set up by a dazzling Devin Hester punt return, and a Charles Tillman forced fumble on Chris Johnson, respectively. On the back end of the Bears merciless, game-long blitzkrieg, Chicago pulled its starters leading 51-20 with 10 minutes left.
Yep, definitely could have been worse. They could have scored 70. The Bears offense was bound to come out of pseudo-hibernation against an atrocious Titans defense. After all, you can’t score 51 points in the NFL with defense alone. Well, maybe this defense could, forcing 5 more turnovers, and the aforementioned Urlacher touc...

The Chicago Bears are expected to sign quarterback Josh McCown with Jay Cutler's status in doubt because of a concussion, ESPN Chicago reported Monday. Cutler sustained a concussion after taking a hard hit during the Bears' 13-6 loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday night. Jason Campbell replaced Cutler for the second half of the game. The Bears will need another backup...
Jay Cutler left the game against Houston at halftime having also been diagnosed with a concussion, but, for me the issue poses a bigger question than whether or not Jason Campbell can do enough to lead the Bears to victory (I'd suggest it just got quite a bit harder for them). The question is why wasn't a concussion test administered on Cutler before he went to the locker...

Bears rookie defensive end Shea McClellin was knocked out of Sunday night's game with a concussion.
Team officials took McClellin to the locker room for examination immediately after Chicago's opening kickoff.
The 19th overall pick in the 2012 draft, McClellin entered Sunday's game having contributed three tackles (including two for a loss), 2.5 sacks and nine quarterback...
The constant rain has turned this Sunday Night Football game between the Houston Texans and Chicago Bears into an utter slop fest. But even then it’s not without its big plays.Tim Dobbins made a play to get after Jay Cutler and unfortunately for Cutler, despite absorbing a massive hit, it was all for nothing. Cutler had barely crossed the line of scrimmage, making the pass...
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has left Chicago's game against the Houston Texans because of a concussion.
A scrambling Cutler took a helmet-to-helmet hit from Tim Dobbins after unleashing a pass on third down at midfield late in the first half Sunday night.
There were offsetting penalties on the play. Cutler got called for an illegal forward pass because he was beyond the line...
With the possibility that Jay Cutler might not play against the San Francisco 49ers next Monday night, Bears coach Lovie Smith was particularly hopeful that rookie wide receiver Alshon Jeffery will play in that game after missing the previous four games with a broken hand.
''Hopefully [Cutler and defensive end Shea McClellin] will be ready to go,'' Smith said Monday...

The Bears’ offense flat out stunk on Sunday night. The Texans’ offense played the way the Bears typically do to win 13-6.
RB Matt Forte was completely shut down adding just 39 yards on 16 carries. His longest run...
Houston DC Wade Phillips says the Texans will double team Chicago wideout Brandon Marshall all game Sunday, meaning the Bears must have an executable Plan B in place.
CHICAGO (AP) -- Bears star cornerback Charles Tillman is active for Sunday's game against Houston, while Texans tight end Owen Daniels is out because of a back injury.
There was some question about Tillman's status after he told a Chicago radio station he might not be available because his wife, Jackie, is due to give birth to a girl -- the couple's fourth child. He...
Late in the second quarter on Sunday night, with the Chicago Bears down 10-3 to the Houston Texans, Jay Cutler stepped out of the pocket and eventually crossed the line of scrimmage to make a pass to Devin Hester. The play would be called back, and a review of whether Cutler stepped over the line would ensue.
Bears fans everywhere would also soon suffer from scary memories of...
What else must Lovie Smith do to win over the Bear’s fans and front office?
Don’t become a prisoner of the moment and scoff at the title of this article simply due to the fact the Bears lost to the Texans this past weekend. Lovie Smith has proven to be one of the best coaches in Bear’s franchise history, and he deserves to be rewarded with a long term contract before his current...
(Eds: Adds photos. With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist Bears defenders have been running off the field for a half-century now and yelling the same thing at their offensive teammates.
''Try and hold `em.''
One more time, that turned out to be too much to ask.
The Houston Texans arrived in Chicago with the same glittering 7-1 record and ranked in the...
