On Monday, what stood out about the Bears' performance on Sunday is the pass protection held up both in terms of recognition and execution against an aggressive, accomplished blitzing team. Arizona defensive coordinator Ray Horton sent more than four...
For the first time since the 1985 season, the Bears landed two defensive linemen in the Pro Bowl as Julius Peppers and Henry Melton were selected as all-stars. Peppers led the defense with 111/2 sacks, his most since joining the club in 2010, and...

The bench players that general manager Phil Emery added to the Bears in the offseason did more than improve depth. They improved the front line too. There is little doubt that more intense completion at cornerback, defensive end, defensive tackle,...

On Thursday, Josh McCown was a hero. On Friday, he was holding a large garbage bag full of whatever belongings had been in his Halas Hall locker. The reason McCown no longer is a Bear is he is neither as good as Jason Campbell nor as young as Matt...
It appears Jason Campbell will have the Bears' full complement of offensive weapons Monday night against the 49ers. Receiver Alshon Jeffery, who hasn't played since he fractured his right hand in Week 5 against the Jaguars, had full participation in...

Pardon me if I'm a smidge disjointed with this one. I have had no experience writing about a Bears offense with players at the skilled positions who are capable of taking a team to a Super Bowl. And I have no memory of a Bears defense that appears to...
