Jimmy Clausen Clausen received an extension this offseason, so it appears the Bears have plans for him behind Jay Cutler.  He does provide some insurance. 3.

RUMOR: Chicago Bears Gunning For Garza Replacement

Being patient and refusing to overspend have become the trademarks of GM Ryan Pace in his first run through NFL free agency.  That is rather refreshing (and surprising) for the youngest at his job in the entire league.  After a series of quick deals with a prominent name in Pernell McPhee and two second tier guys in Antrel Rolle and Eddie Royal, the Chicago Bears have gone completely...

The Chicago Bears Have Rebuilt Quickly Before

Before addressing the dreaded “R-word” it’s important to clarify why it’s being brought up in the first place.  The Bears finished last season 5-11.  Was it all on the players?  No but teams don’t finish with those kinds of records without having issues with personnel.  In this case the Bears are simply too old.  Hub Arkus of Chicago Football put it crystal clear perspective...

Expect the 2016 Chicago Bears To Look Totally Different

It’s no surprise that people will stay focused on what the Chicago Bears will do in 2015 in regards to picking up the pieces from what was a painful 5-11 season.  However, anybody who might be expecting sweeping changes to the roster from the get go by GM Ryan Pace and head coach John Fox need to settle down.

Bears extend center Garza

At least one Chicago Bear knows he’ll be returning next year. The Bears gave a one-year extension to veteran center Roberto Garza on Friday. Garza, a undersized but technically sound player who has squeezed the most out of his ability, will be counted on to anchor a offensive line that has struggled with injuries and inconsistency throughout the 2014 season.

Grading the Chicago Bears’ offense, defense & special teams vs. Atlanta

Call it what you will but the Chicago Bears week six win could end up being a season saver. For the first time all season, the Bears played a complete game for all four quarters and dominated each facet of their 27-13 win. The defense gave up 13 points, which happens to be the lowest it has been in the Trestman/Tucker era. On top of it all, the team was missing four starters on defense...

What Happened o the Bears "Elite" Offense?

While the defense was bad for the Chicago Bears in 2013, for once the team's offense was something to be proud. Finishing 2nd in the league in points scored, 5th in passing yards and 8th in total yards, it was the offense that was the Bears' better half last season. This in a way served as some validation for General Manager Phil Emery's decision to bring in Marc Trestman from the...
