Biggs: McNabb Is Not The Answer

Two games into the Caleb Hanie experiment, the Bears have lost two straight, and it’s becoming more and more clear that Hanie is not the answer.

Biggs: Don’t Expect Bears To Sign New Starter

With reports surfacing that Jay Cutler could be lost for the rest of the regular season with a broken thumb, the Bears need to move quickly in their back up plans.

Chris Williams

Biggs: Personnel Changes Nothing New For Bears O Line

During the Bears current four-game winning streak, the offensive line has been a bright spot, protecting Jay Cutler and paving a way for Matt Forte. Now, with Williams lost for the season with a wrist injury, the Bears must regroup and work with a new left guard, Edwin Williams.

Michael Vick

Biggs: Vick and Co. Represent Daunting Task

Leading charge for the Eagles is the versatile Michael Vick, who’s legs are just as much a threat as his arms. Add to that mix an explosive group of wide receivers and a running back rushing for over five yards per carry, and the Bears have a tantalizing challenge.

Biggs: Forte Assumes All Risk

As he plays out the final year of his rookie contract, Forte turned down the Bears contract offer in search of more money.

Biggs: Carimi Will Play, Won’t Start

Gabe Carimi, who was sidelined with a knee injury in Week 2 that caused him to miss five games, practiced Wednesday and is likely to play when the Bears return against the Eagles next Monday night.

Biggs: Offensive Line Woes Continue To Plague Bears

When the Bears drafted then-tackle Chris Williams with the 14th-overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, they thought they were getting their left tackle of the future.

Biggs: Franchise Tag For Forte?

With Matt Forte surpassing the 1000-yard mark of total yards through seven games this season, the contract-extension talks will most certainly follow.

Reports surfaced on Wednesday that the framework for a new collective bargaining agreement between the NFL and the players could be finalized by this weekend, and officially agreed on by July.

Plaxico Burress

Why The Bears Won’t Pursue Burress

Former Giants receiver Plaxico Burress spent nearly two years in prison before being released on Monday. While he may no longer be what he was before he was sent to jail, the Bears are still in need of a big receiver, so pursuing Burress would make sense.

Lack Of Lawyers Was Key To ‘Secret’ Lockout Meeting

Although it may have been court ordered, the fact that the NFL and players held a “secret” meeting in a Chicago suburb might be a sign that the two sides want to limit the distractions and focus on getting a deal done.

Bears Could Target D-Line, Receiver During Second Day Of Draft

Could The Bears Draft Multiple Offensive Linemen?

The Chicago Bears desperately need help along the offensive line if they want to pickup where they left off last season. But don’t be surprised if the team goes after more than one player to bolster that group.
