It’s still unclear when free agency will actually begin, but when it does, the Chicago Bears will have to make a decision about whether or not to bring back center Olin Kreutz.
A number of Bears remain unsigned, including center Oline Kreutz, linebacker Nick Roach, defensive tackle Anthony Adams, wide receiver Rashied Davis and punter Brad Maynard.
Optimistic reports about the NFL Lockout have started to come in with more frequency over the previous few days, leading most to believe that a deal will be reached soon. Once that deal is reached, the Bears will have another big negotiation.
When the NFL Lockout is finally lifted, teams will have to cram an entire offseason worth of coaching, evaluation and roster management into a very short amount of time. One of the things on Bears general manager Jerry Angelo’s list will be Olin Kreutz.
This will be one of the more interesting NFL offseasons in recent memory. Not only will there be roughly double the free agents as normal, but the negotiations between the NFL and NFL Players Union could save or doom the 2011 season.
In the wake of Jay Cutler’s knee injury his toughness has been called into question by some fans and players around the league. But his Chicago Bears’ teammates know their quarterback. SEE VIDEO OF FANS BURNING CUTLER JERSEY
A weird season is over after yesterday’s aimless chaos, and the Bears wake up to a new challenge today.
The Bears 21-14 loss in the NFC title game couldn’t have been more strange if it came out of Hollywood. Nearly coming back to tie the game with your 3rd string QB after being down 14? Impossible – but it almost happened.
Concussions, injuries and illegal hits seemed to be the focus during this NFL season. Penalties for unnecessary roughness rose from 2009 to 2010 as a result. With the NFL playoffs kicking off Saturday, these kinds of calls will be put to the test throughout the postseason.
The Bears’ offensive line was blitzed heavily in the second half of the loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. That heavy blitzing, along with the playoff atmosphere in Green Bay was a big help for the young o-line.
Well, we found out that winning this game was important to Lovie Smith. The Bears starters played the entire game and came up short in the regular season finale 10-3.
Bears’ wide receiver Earl Bennett was held out of Thursday’s practice due the ankle that he re-aggravated in the Bears’ 38-34 victory over the New York Jets.
The New England Patriots are one of, if not the best team in the NFL. And they’ve been at the top of the league for some time now. Because of this, the Bears can look at Sunday’s loss as a measuring stick, to gauge just how far they have to go to get to where they want to be.
The Bears went from playing their best football of the season, to playing their worst game of the season. Despite the 36-7 loss to the Patriots, the Bears can still lock up the division, and a playoff berth, with a win over the Vikings and a Green Bay loss.
The Bears are finally giving Jay Cutler some protection after changing up the rotation several times due to player performance and injuries. They finally have the right mix.
Time is everything, especially when you’re a quarterback in a Mike Martz offense. The more time Cutler has had to throw the ball the better the results have been and the more his confidence has grown.
Chicago Bears’ Olin Kreutz is on a streak of 126 straight starts and that doesn’t look like it will be broken against the Vikings Sunday. Kreutz had missed practice Wednesday and Thursday due to a pulled hamstring.
The Bills have the worst record in the NFL, 0-7, and if they Bears don’t want to give them their first win, they’ll have put them down early.
The Bears need a break in the worst way. They’ve lost three of their last four games and the offensive line looks disorganized. But, a break is exactly what they’ll get as they head into their bye week coming off a 17-14 loss.
It’s a national stage for Bears/Packer tonight. It’s always fun to enjoy the feast of the NFL all weekend only to be rewarded with the dessert of the Bears playing a meaningful game on Monday […]
