This was a setback that had many shaking their heads.
Still in search of some kind of identity, the Bears may be closer than ever to finding one.
Cam Newton threw two touchdown passes to Greg Olsen and the Carolina Panthers’ defense forced four turnovers to overcome a 14-point deficit and defeat the Chicago Bears 31-24 on Sunday.
With Carolina’s backfield short-handed, slowing Cam Newton is the priority for the Chicago.
The Carolina Panthers cut the face of the franchise, Steve Smith, and let the only other three wide receivers on the roster that caught a pass last season leave as free agents. Tight end Greg Olsen is the only proven receiver returning from last season’s squad. Olsen should be Cam Newton’s favorite target this season.
The Carolina Panthers had to win the last game of the season to get the NFC South title and a first-round bye so it’s not like it was a time they could rest their players. Steve Smith had to sit out with an injury, and there were not a lot of other options for Cam Newton to rely on, but there need to be.

I have packed away so much fantasy knowledge in the many, many leagues I have played in over the many, many years, but this year, a new revelation has come to mind.
Studs like Graham and Gronkowski are in a league of their own, but the position offers solid players.
Emery has to hit a home run in this draft and give Trestman at least two regular starters. At least one of those players must come on the offensive side.
The key to winning a championship, or at least putting yourself in position to make a run in the playoffs, rests on the shoulders of your second running back, third wide receiver and backup quarterback.
Here’s a message to Phil Emery: If you want to further win over your fan base, simply draft a player with the No. 19 pick who will have an immediate impact on the team.
As we focus once again on the sheer joy of watching huge men clobber each other until their brains leak out, I’m picturing the next four months for the Bears, and here’s what’s in store.
Greg Olsen trade rumors started the moment Mike Martz was hired as offensive coordinator after the 2009 season and they never really went away until the tight end was finally traded to Carolina last month.
The mailbag heats up this week as the Bears get ready for their first preseason game against the Buffalo Bills Saturday.
If it’s Tuesday, that means it’s time for another Bears mailbag. It’s nice to have actual football to discuss, so let’s go…
As Greg Olsen woke up this morning to the realization that he is no longer a Chicago Bear, the fifth-year tight end is looking forward to a “little stability and security” with his new team.
The Bears traded tight end Greg Olsen to the Carolina Panthers for an undisclosed draft pick.
The Bears created quite a stir with their tight ends Thursday, releasing one, signing a different one and shopping another.
