Phil Emery will hire the right head coach for the Bears. Nobody can say so yet, of course. Nobody can draw a fair conclusion about Lovie Smith's successor until next season at the earliest. But Emery gave the Bears every reason to believe that...
With a knowing glance, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler made eye contact with backup Jason Campbell in the locker room at halftime of Sunday night's 13-6 loss to the Texans. "Jay just looked at me and said, 'Be ready,'" Campbell said. Do we know if a...
When general manager Phil Emery was hired to replace Jerry Angelo in the offseason, team President Ted Phillips said the move was made to close the "talent gap" between the Bears and their division rivals, the Packers and Lions. Emery wasn't supposed...
The weapon of choice in the NFL is the helmet. The safety-improved helmet, as well as other advanced protective equipment players wear today, can make them feel invincible and perhaps more reckless in blocking and tackling techniques. "That's why we...

Typical of how a giddy little brother of a probable Hall of Fame middle linebacker would react, Casey Urlacher couldn't stop gushing over Brian Urlacher's endless accomplishments in 13 NFL seasons. Yet there was one yearly deed the younger Urlacher...
DETROIT — The Bears could spend between now and wild-card weekend counting the reasons they will be sitting at home with 10 wins. A defensive meltdown in Week 13 against the Seahawks and a brutal loss at Minnesota the following week are good places...
