Winless Bears play it safe, kick FG on fourth-and-goal from the one

The Chicago Bears made a curious decision at the end of the first half of their Week 4 matchup against the Oakland Raiders. The winless Bears drove down to the one yard line with less than two minutes remaining in the half -- and they settled for a field goal. 19-yd FG by @RobbieGould09 is good. #Bears take a 16-14 lead! 1:26 left in the half. #OAKvsCHI—...

John Fox says LB Shea McClellin is 'getting better everyday'

Chicago Bears coach John Fox took the time to talk about linebacker Shea McClellin and his move from defensive end to inside linebacker. He was drafted in the first round (19th overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft, but hasn't been able to carve a role out on defense; however, his move to inside linebacker could be the one that works out. “I thought he did well [against Miami],” Fox...

“Kicking and screaming” was never John Fox’s way

“It’s just running, throwing, catching and tackling, boys. It’s not that complicated.” If that’s not a direct quote from John Fox during his four-year stay in Denver, it has to be pretty close. It’s the summary of the old ball coach’s football philosophy. From playing it, to coaching it, maybe he even applied it to his personal life. Things don’t have to be so complicated...

Brian Urlacher hints he would like to hit Jay Cutler

    Brian Urlacher spent four seasons as teammates with Jay Cutler in Chicago, and it does not sound like the two were the best of friends. During an appearance on “The Dan Patrick Show” Monday morning, Urlacher was asked who he would like to sack if he could go back and hit one more quarterback. “Any team?” he asked. “Even if it was a team I played for?” Patrick...

John Fox on Jay Cutler's hamstring injury: 'Any time it's not real severe, I think it's good news'

Did Jay Cutler really injure his hamstring?

    If you watched the way Jay Cutler landed while trying to make a tackle after he threw an interception on Sunday, you may have thought he injured his shoulder. According to the Chicago Bears, you would have been wrong. The Bears say Cutler left his team’s loss to the Arizona Cardinals with a hamstring injury.

Can John Fox save the Bears?

Somehow, John Fox fits in Chicago. He’s not quite grizzled, but he does look a bit the hard-broiled veteran coach, stoically squinting into the sun with Lake Michigan winds whipping through his white hair. He casts a different look—and brings a different attitude—than the previous head coach in the Windy City. That may be just what the Chicago Bears need. Fox comes to the...

Matt Forte admits he is frustrated with the Bears

It seems like it’s Matt Forte‘s destiny in the NFL for nothing to come easy to him. When he was due his first big extension at the end of his rookie deal the Chicago Bears front office put off his extension so long that opposing players would ask him on the field if they were going to pay him or not. Now that his current deal is coming to an end, Forte is once again frustrated...

John Fox responds to Mike McCarthy’s smack talk

The Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers enjoy the NFL’s longest rivalry, going all the way back to 1921, so it makes sense that over the years some serious smack talk has occurred between members of the respective, longtime organizations. With the teams renewing the rivalry early on this season with a Week 1 showdown, the trash talk trend continued when Packers head coach Mike...

Bears have very strict rules for media during training camp

It’s no secret that NFL head coaches like to keep things secret, but John Fox has taken things to another level this summer at Chicago Bears camp. The team has issued some crazy rules for reporters trying to give their loyal readers and fans a picture of what the team will look like heading into the 2015 season. Dan Berstein, a radio host in Chicago, outlined the silliness on...
