Chicago Bears: Phil Emery Insists Money Won’t Deter Cutler Decision

Phil Emery didn’t mince words when he said the Chicago Bears were a 3-5 team with a 3-5 quarterback.  He understands better than people realize.  After all, he and head coach Marc Trestman were the ones who agreed to make Jay Cutler their guy by handing him a new contract worth upwards of $126 million.  They did it in good confidence that Trestman’s coaching ability could...

Too little, too late remains to be the storyline for the Chicago Bears

The depleted Chicago Bears traveled to Gillette Stadium Sunday and were dominated by the New England Patriots falling 51-23 and dropping to 3-5 in the standings.

WATCH: Lamarr Houston hurt celebrating sack down 25 points

What is wrong with Bears? The score wasn’t even that close, why are you celebrating sacking the backup QB like you just won the Super Bowl? I hope the injury isn’t season ending, but this says a lot about the mentality of the Bears right now and it isn’t good. Houston had to be carted off the field.

Chicago Bears: is Marc Trestman on the hot seat?

The Chicago Bears suffered another loss at Soldier field, a place in which they haven’t won a game all year. The offense struggled once again and continues to play at a inconsistent level.
