What should the Bears do at Defensive End?

The problem I keep coming back to with this off-season is that the Bears need a DE. Even if Peppers is restructured and Wootton is re-signed, the Bears need a starting calibre DE. The failure of the McClellin pick has left them with very little pass rush in the cupboard.   This is where the problem begins as this offseason does not appear to have a DE group, in free agency or the draft, that excites me at a ...

NFL Week 10: Chicago Bears Grades

It was a game the Bears had to have. A game that would have put them alone in first place in the NFC North with just seven games left and a favorable schedule.

Solid Rep: pressure, potential pressure or nice pass rush move, solid run play or tackle [+]. Neutral Rep: No ...

Grading the Bears: Dominant in Jacksonville

It was another dominant performance by the Chicago Bears Sunday in Jacksonville. The defense held the lowly Jaguars to just 3 points, and after struggling for most of the first half, the offense got it together and put up 24 of the teams 41 points in the second half. Led by two interception returns for touchdowns by Charles Tillman and Lance Briggs, the Bears defense dominated. The Jaguars couldn't establis ...

Bears Advance To 8-3, Dominate High Flying Eagles

Late in the second half, the Bears defense stood in the shadow of their own goal posts nursing a 13-14 lead.  Their initial success against the Eagles seemed futile as Vick took the snap from center and fired a pass for a go ahead touchdown. Tommy Harris shot a hand up in the throwing lane and the ball deflected into the waiting hands of Chris Harris who returned Vick’s first interception of the season to m ...
