2016 Bears Defense Could Make Buddy Proud

“QB’s are over-paid, over-rated, pompous bastards and must be punished.”-Buddy Ryan. For the first time in a number of years, the Bears have a chance to have the kind of defense that would make Buddy Ryan proud. They finally have a number of players who can, and should, get to the quarterback. The Bears’ sack totals since they stopped running Ryan’s defense are a bit depressing...

10 Bears who could make the Pro Bowl

The Pro Bowl is the greatest spectacle in football. The best of the best come together to battle it out for true supremacy. Outside of the Super Bowl, it is the biggest sporting event of the year. At least that’s what the NFL wants you to think. The truth is, the Pro Bowl has been rapidly declining over the years. A lot of players no longer want to play in it, and the fans aren’t...

The Chicago Bears need a new return man

Since the departure of Devin Hester, the Chicago Bears has yet to find a standout return man. This has had a negative effect on their average starting field position ever since. Also, since the 2014 season, Chicago has not returned a punt for a touchdown and during kickoff returns they have only managed to find the end zone once. If the Bears are to have a shot at contending for...

Chicago Bears: Can Cutler keep up with the Pace?

Ryan Pace has done his job well. He surrounded his talented-but-wildly-inconsistent quarterback with all of the support he could acquire. This sounds like a broken record, but now is officially the time for Jay Cutler to step up. Jay Cutler has made a name for himself in Chicago as being a quarterback who is almost top-tier; his debatable decision-making skills keep him in the middle...

Chicago Bears: Defensive line will be better

The Chicago Bears defense wasn’t good last season. Coach John Fox was transitioning a group from a 4-3 base defense to a 3-4 and didn’t have ideal personnel at many positions. They ended the season ranked 19th in total defense, 22nd in sacks, 29th in passing defense and 10th in rush defense. The rushing stat is a bit misleading since the Bear’s had one of the league’s worst...

John Fox: Jay Cutler ‘had an outstanding year’ in 2015

The Chicago Bears finished with an abysmal 6-10 record, landing them to the bottom of the NFC North last season. Although, this did not deter head coach John Fox from heaping on the praises of quarterback Jay Cutler. “I thought Jay had an outstanding year,” Fox said, per Peter King of MMQB.” To Cutler’s credit, he didn’t have a lot to work with considering Alshon...

Is 33-year-old Jay Cutler about to peak?

Few professional athletes have a “defining year” at the age of 33, but that’s how The MMQB’s Emily Kaplan summed up Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler’s 2016 season. And it makes sense, because the 10-year veteran is coming off the highest-rated season of his NFL career. The former turnover machine had just 11 interceptions and a pick rate of 2.3 percent, which was by...
