Bears and Brandon Marshall (yes, him too) must part ways

Marshall wore out his welcome with two teams (Miami and Denver) before he got...

The Chicago Bears are the Monstrosity of the Midway

In another nationally televised disaster, the Chicago Bears went down meekly 31–15 to the New Orleans Saints in a game that was nowhere near as close as the final tally indicates. The Bears had two meaningless scores in the fourth quarter when the game was already long over.

Martellus Bennett Calls Out Chicago Bears Teammates For Lacking Passion

It’s not a secret to anybody now.  The 2014 Chicago Bears are an absolute train wreck.  They aren’t cohesive.  They aren’t disciplined.  Apparently they aren’t invested either.  That’s been alluded to in the past but for the first time an actual player on the team admitted it openly.
