Chicago Bears would fire Marc Trestman if the season ended today

If the NFL season ended right now, with most teams having played 10 games, the playoff match-ups would be interesting. Some of the usual suspects (New England and Denver) would be taking part, while some preseason contenders (Seattle and San Francisco) would be on the outside looking in. Some surprise teams (Detroit and Kansas City) would be playing, while others (Miami and Buffalo...

Marc Trestman Is Becoming More Like Lovie Smith

The irony cannot be lost on anybody that as Marc Trestman prepares to face the man he replaced in Lovie Smith, he’s starting to mimic the former Chicago Bears head coach.  The transformation has caught a lot of people, the media in particular by surprise.  Several writers have noticed it over the past couple weeks, coincidentally coinciding with the teams’ horrid three-game...

WATCH: Chicago Bears Jared Allen Absolutely Embarrasses Vikings Matt Kalil on Sack

To see Chicago Bears defensive lineman Jared Allen make a sack is nothing new. The veteran player has made many over the years so when we hear his name being attached to a sack we assume it was just Allen being Allen once again. However, that may not be the whole story with the one he had against the Minnesota Vikings Sunday.Had Matt Kalil actually moved his feet and put forth some...

The Chicago Bears rebound with their first home win of the season

Key defensive stops and an established running game with Matt Forte proved to be the difference Sunday as the Chicago Bears tallied their first win at Soldier Field this season. Sunday’s 21-13 NFC North divisional victory against the Minnesota Vikings demonstrated that while the Bears are depleted, leaderless, and undisciplined, they still possess enough talent to defeat the bottom...

WATCH: Jay Cutler flagged for throwing temper tantrum

Things are not going well for Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears these days. The quarterback was especially fussy during the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Vikings after the game was stopped for a Mike Zimmer challenge flag.

Brandon Marshall's mom defends WR's fight offer tweet

Brandon Marshall’s mother was “honored” after his son came to her defense on Twitter and offered a Detroit Lions fan $25,000 to get into the ring with him. But the wide receiver’s employer felt a little bit differently about the back-and-forth on the social media website. The Bears wideout’s mom, Diane, told TMZ Sports she thought Marshall’s offer was “very sweet”...

Brandon Marshall’s Twitter antics are giving the Bears another distraction

Calling the 2014 season a mess for the Chicago Bears may be an understatement. The team is 3-6, is coming off of back to back slaughters by the Patriots and Packers, and is simply falling apart. Naturally, it’s not enough for the team to be struggling on the field. Brandon Marshall has caused a dust-up this week by proposing to fight a Twitter troll for $25,000. "@AnthonyGKalla...

Brady Poppinga: Reason For Chicago Bears’ Struggles Starts At GM

To put it mildly, the Chicago Bears are going through some tough times this year. They haven’t won a home game in 2014 and have allowed over 100 points in their last two road games against the New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers. Despite having offensive weapons like Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall and Martellus Bennett, the team is struggling to win games because of their...

Da Bears Da Bacle: What's wrong with Chicago?

Following Sunday's embarrassing loss to the Green Bay Packers on national TV, the Chicago Bears stooped to levels of ineptitude not seen in Halas Hall in over a decade. For the Bears' offense, there are no excuses. They have a dream-team of offensive personnel—a quarterback in Jay Cutler that can make all the throws and multiple weapons at his disposal; including Brandon...

Brandon Marshall offers Twitter heckler $25,000 to fight him

The Chicago Bears' 2014 campaign hasn't turned out the way the team hoped it would. The (3-6) squad isn't playing anywhere near its potential—given the plethora of talent on its roster—and there's been talk of dissension off the field between players and coaches. Wide receiver Brandon Marshall has been quite outspoken about the state of the team. And now,...

The Chicago Bears suck. Especially on defense.

How f*cking terrible is the Chicago Bears defense? Historically f*cking terrible. And I’m talking the type of history that’s so old it predates the birth of the useless slab of flabby meat formerly known as Lance Briggs, who rode a goddamn brontosaurus to school and now eats a whole one as his pre-game meal. Never in my life did I think I’d see the Bears lay out a sack of...
