Bears Takeaways: Week 13

Despite blizzard-like conditions, the Bears offense “exploded” for a season-high 26 points in a relatively easy victory over the 49ers, one of only two teams in the league with a worse record than the Bears going into week 13. Unfortunately, it probably knocked the Bears out of the running for the 2nd overall pick, but […] Bears Takeaways: Week 13 - Bear Goggles On - Bear Goggles...

Report: John Fox will be back with Bears in 2017

The Chicago Bears have not been a good team since they brought in John Fox as head coach prior to the 2015 season, but it sounds like the organization is willing to give him one more shot. Mike Mulligan of the Chicago Tribune reports that Fox is expected to remain with the Bears in 2017, despite the team’s current 3-9 record after a 6-10 season last year. Fox is expected to make...

Across The Middle — Week 14

The Bears have a 26-year-old quarterback who is playing well but it shouldn’t change any of their offseason plans. I’ve been as impressed with Matt Barkley as anyone but if the Bears like a quarterback enough to take him in the top five — thus grading him as a franchise quarterback — they shouldn’t let Barkley change their plans. After seeing Barkley continually complete...

Bears gain confidence from rare win with young lineup

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) Even if the Chicago Bears' future at quarterback is murky, their vision of the future at numerous other spots looks more clear. A nonfactor in the NFC North race, the Bears continue giving effort normally associated with teams in a playoff chase. Sunday's 26-6 victory over the San Francisco 49ers provided them with hope about their long-range future. It's...

Could Matt Barkley be the Chicago Bears’ solution at quarterback?

OK, maybe I’m overreacting. After all, quarterback Matt Barkley has only played one game for the team – his first start of his entire career actually – and it was against the Titans, a good but not necessarily elite team. He also completed less than 50% of his passes and threw two interceptions. So why is he even a consideration for the position beyond this season? The Chicago...
