November 21st, 2011 - 9:04 am

All seemed to be right with the Bears immediately following their 31-20 victory over the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. They had just won their fifth-straight victory and in convincing fashion, too. The defense was taking away the ball, Devin [...]

Monday Morning Quarterback: Bears-Lions (11.13.11)

November 14th, 2011 - 10:36 am

While riding a three-game win streak and starting to find their stride on both sides of the ball, the Bears had the perfect momentum to exact a 37-13 measure of revenge against division-rival Detroit on Sunday. Not only did the [...]

Monday Morning Quarterback: Bears-Eagles (11.07.11)

November 8th, 2011 - 9:50 am

Just who exactly were those Bears who showed up in Philadelphia on Monday night and delivered a 30-24 victory over the heavily-favored Eagles? Who was that team who defied my expectations? And these local guys? And these national guys, too? [...]

Monday Morning Quarterback: Bears-Buccaneers (10.23.11)

October 24th, 2011 - 8:18 am

It turns out the Bears’ workmanlike itinerary served them well in defeating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 24-18, in London on Sunday. Lovie Smith drew a lot of unnecessary heat from fans and the media for departing for London late in [...]

Monday Morning Quarterback: Bears-Vikings (10.16.11)

October 17th, 2011 - 8:21 am

We certainly learned something about the Bears in their 39-10 victory over the Vikings on Sunday night: if the NFL was divided into social classes a la the American society, the Bears are probably somewhere in the upper middle class. [...]

Monday Morning Quarterback: Bears-Lions (10.10.11)

October 11th, 2011 - 10:54 am

Monday night’s 24-13 loss to the Lions confirmed what many of us fear the Bears have become. They’re old, tired, undermanned and overmatched. Lovie Smith’s defensive system has run its course in this league and Mike Martz’s offense never had [...]

Monday Morning Quarterback: Bears-Panthers (10.02.11)

October 3rd, 2011 - 7:01 am

In a game that made it seem as though we were watching sandlot football, the Bears outlasted the Panthers on Sunday and secured a much-needed, 34-29 conference victory. Neither team seemed to want to play defense — or maybe they [...]

Monday Morning Quarterback: Bears-Packers (09.25.11)

September 26th, 2011 - 7:37 am

Well, so much for balance. In their 27-17 loss to the defending Super Bowl champion Packers, the Bears ran 43 passing plays — 37 pass attempts, three scrambles and three sacks — compared to just nine run plays, two fewer [...]

Monday Morning Quarterback: Bears-Saints (09.18.11)

September 19th, 2011 - 7:10 am

The Bears entered Sunday’s game against the Saints riding an emotional high from their home opener victory against the Falcons. After the 30-13 beating they took in New Orleans, you’ve got to wonder how low they’ll be feeling as they [...]

Monday Morning Quarterback: Bears-Falcons (09.11.11)

September 12th, 2011 - 7:10 am

Jay Cutler threw for over 300 yards and two touchdowns. Matt Forte was the focal point of the offense once again, finishing with 158 total yards and a score. Eight different Bears caught passes. The defensive line dominated as they [...]
