MOBILE, Ala. — "Relentless equals high velocity, nonstop." That coaching slogan sure sounds like it could have come out of the Rod Marinelli book of wisdom. But it didn't. It is the motto of the new Bears defensive coordinator, not the old....
Bears general manager Phil Emery and new head coach Marc Trestman celebrate birthdays just a day apart from one another. That's one of the nifty — dare we say synergetic? — connections between the two men. Sadly, they weren't born in late...
Did Jimmy Johnson tweet anything else today? Hey, don’t laugh. There’s more information about the Bears coaching search coming off a houseboat in Miami than from the offices in Lake Forest. But until we see white smoke coming out of...

Forget Calvin Johnson versus Charles Tillman for a minute. Let's pit Calvin Johnson against Brandon Marshall. Viewed strictly on the field, who would you rather have? Start here: Most teams in the NFL probably would love to have either. "Either...
The game against the Lions on Sunday could have been the last one for a Bear who has been around forever and has his name listed prominently in the team record books. But the Bears decided they wanted him back. Whether or not the Bears will take the...
Most fans go to Bears summer training camp hoping to be entertained by spectacular offensive plays. Jay Cutler lofts a deep pass to Brandon Marshall, Devin Hester or Earl Bennett and the crowd goes wild. Matt Forte bursts through a hole and races 35...
Shea McClellin is hearing voices. So are most NFL rookies during this point of training camp. From their position coaches, coordinators, veteran teammates, friends, media, fans — everyone offers well-intended advice on how best to transition...

When the Lions and their fans look at how dominating the Bears defense and its scheme has been, they have to think, "That should have been us." In 2006, Matt Millen hired Rod Marinelli as head coach of the Lions. Then in 2008, the Lions became the...
The popular joke when the Bears traded for Jay Cutler in 2009 was that they fleeced the Broncos by including two first-round draft picks because such selections were worthless in Chicago. The trade simply spared the Bears the indignity of making even more...
The Cover-2 defense is boring. And it lacks creativity. I can't tell you how many times I've heard that about the two-deep scheme the Bears still lean on in their game plan. Sure, they have become more "multiple" with coordinator Rod Marinelli in...
