There are just four teams in the NFL who are still winless heading into Week 4—the Detroit Lions, the New Orleans Saints, the Baltimore Ravens and the Chicago Bears.

First, there’s the 10 punts that ended...

You won’t believe why the NFL fined Bears tight end Martellus Bennett this week

Is there anything more silly in sports than the NFL’s anal-retentive uniform rules? This week we got more evidence that the league is just plain ridiculous when it comes to fashion. According to Chicago Bears tight end Martellus Bennett, he was fined this week because the cleats he wore against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday were “too black.” No, seriously. Martellus Bennett...

Bears’ most productive player could miss Week 4: Punter Pat O’Donnell

The Chicago Bears are 0-3 and an unmitigated disaster not even one-quarter the way through the NFL season, something that can be easily explained given that the team’s punter, Pat O’Donnell, arguably has been their most productive player. And the news that he might sit out of the Bears’ Week 4 match-up with the 2-1 Oakland Raiders could be deemed comically devastating. After...

Raiders favored to win on road for first time since 2012

Martellus Bennett has beef with NFL over shoe fine

    One would have to imagine Martellus Bennett was already unhappy with the Bears falling to 0-3 after a 26-0 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.

Four tweets that show why Chicago Bears fans are so mad right now

To say that the 2015 NFL season has been a disappointment for Chicago Bears fans so far would be the understatement of the year. Not only is the team 0-3, but they’ve lost their starting quarterback to an injury and already the front office has gone into fire-sale mode by trading players for late round draft picks. Jared Allen and Jon Bostic have been shipped off the the Panthers...

“Kicking and screaming” was never John Fox’s way

“It’s just running, throwing, catching and tackling, boys. It’s not that complicated.” If that’s not a direct quote from John Fox during his four-year stay in Denver, it has to be pretty close. It’s the summary of the old ball coach’s football philosophy. From playing it, to coaching it, maybe he even applied it to his personal life. Things don’t have to be so complicated...

Three weeks into the the 2015 season, the Chicago Bears have come to official grips with what anyone who has watched them this year already knows: they suck.

WATCH: Chicago Bears Jarvis Jenkins With The Sack And Sack Dance Against Seattle

The Chicago Bears are going to need to lean heavily on two things while they wait on Jay Cutler to get healthy (because a healthy Jay Cutler will be a step up over Jimmy Clausen): (1) Matt Forte and (2) the defense. Forte is always dependable, but the defense has not been the dominant force that fans remember it once being. Over the course of the first two weeks of the season it...
