The Bears may appear to be going nowhere, but that doesn't mean Lovie Smith is headed anywhere. Smith effectively can seal another contract with a victory over the Packers on Sunday. Beating the Packers is important to Bears ownership, and Smith could...
The epitaph for Lovie Smith's tenure as head coach of the Bears could read, "He couldn't fix the offense." For all the good things Smith did in his nine years in Chicago, his undoing was his inability to take care of the side of the ball in which he...
There is no need for Phil Emery to be locked into hiring a head coach with an offensive background. But there is an overwhelming need for him to be locked into hiring someone who has foolproof answers on how to fix the offense. And that probably means...

After Joe Buck completed a round at the annual celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe a few years back, playing partner Carson Palmer asked him, "How do you not curse on the air?" It's a good thing Fox pays him to call World Series and NFC title games...
Former Bears coach and Hall of Fame tight end Mike Ditka was hospitalized Friday after suffering what he said doctors told him was a "very minor stroke." Contacted Friday evening, Ditka said, "I feel good right now and it's not a big deal." Ditka was at...

Steve Sabol, who helped his father get an unlikely fledgling movie company off the ground, then later took over and expanded the family business, now known to sports fans as NFL Films, has died. He was 69. Sabol, who had served as president of NFL...
