Here’s...

Bears HC Trestman bungling his way to credibility crisis

Dedication to run could solve the Chicago Bears’ woes on offense

To say the Chicago Bears need to run the ball more would be an oversimplification, but it is something they’ve had success doing and could open up the rest of their offense. Every team says they want to run the ball more, so it has become cliché, but, with the Bears, it isn’t just about the standard football logic. Running fits what the Bears players do best and what their team...

Things turned tense in the Chicago locker room after the team fell to 0-3 at home on the season, as Marshall was...

Chicago Bears Planning To Rein In Jay Cutler

Jay Cutler has become a constant lightning rod for criticism as to why the Chicago Bears offense is struggling.  Marc Trestman may have an answer.  Surprisingly it has nothing to do with his mechanics, his attitude or his decision-making on several of his passes.  Trestman believes much of the struggles originate from Cutler’s call from the line of scrimmage.
