The Chicago Bears Aren’t Trading Jay Cutler and Here’s Why

7 Perfectly Good Reasons The Chicago Bears Should Trade Matt Forte

Matt Forte has a secure argument that he may be the best player on the Chicago Bears roster, and if not that then definitely the most consistent.  Any time the team has needed a boost, he’s been the one providing it.  Yet those accomplishments are not enough reason to kill the argument that the time may be right for the Bears to trade their star running back.

HBO Real Sports’ 1985 Chicago Bears: MUST WATCH

I should not have doubted HBO Real Sports. I have to take back what I said previously about their 1985 Chicago Bears feature. I made those statements based off their press release previewing the episode and hyping it up. After seeing it, I have to say that I was wrong. Completely wrong. You have to see the Real Sports piece on the 1985 Chicago Bears. It was incredible. Incredibly...

Jay Cutler Left In Charge Of Kids For Few Days: ‘All Hell Breaks Loose’

Jay Cutler’s offseason isn’t going great.

Cutler was in full dad mode over the weekend, as he was left alone with his two young children. But if Cutler has...

Chicago Bears: Top 3 Free Agents To Target This Offseason

For some reason, I think there could be a tug-o-war between the Oakland Raiders and the Chicago Bears over which free agents from Denver they can sign. With John Fox now with the Bears and Jack Del Rio on the bay in Oakland, could this be a simple case of offense versus defense? Will money talk regardless of the position and can the Bears take advantage of the fact Fox was winner...

One of the most disappointing performances of the 2014 NFL season was from the Chicago Bears offense, led by quarterback Jay Cutler.

Bears Must Address Offense in 2015 NFL Draft

While the popular narrative is that the Chicago Bears defense was terrible again in 2014 and is the biggest reason for last season's failure, it was an offense many foolishly expected to be elite that failed too many times even being an average NFL unit that really sunk this team. With the hiring of John Fox, a defensive minded head coach, many expect the team to focus on the defense...
