The Film Don't Lie: Bears

A weekly look at what the Chicago Bears must fix: Head coach Marc Trestman, offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer -- even the players -- constantly harp on the need for the Chicago Bears to eliminate the turnovers, and if the club doesn't start to take some steps in that direction, it faces a long day at Gillette Stadium on Sunday against the New England Patriots, who come into this contest with 10 days of prep time. It all starts with quarterback Jay Cutler, who has spotted opponents an average of 9.

Stock Watch: Ratliff explodes vs. Dolphins

RISING 1. Jeremiah Ratliff, DT: Ratliff played the best game of his brief Bears career with 3.5 sacks in the 27-14 home defeat to Miami. On two separate instances, a Ratliff sack of Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill on third down prevented Miami from putting points on the board. It had been a slow start to the season for Ratliff, who missed three consecutive games due to a concussion, but he played like a man on a mission Sunday. A 10-year NFL veteran, Ratliff had 3.

Getting to know the Chicago Bears

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Any guesses on which player leads the NFL in receptions through seven weeks? If you answered Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte, well done. Forte's 52 receptions top the charts, and his 448 rushing yards rank fifth in the league. So when starting the process of becoming familiar with the Bears leading into Sunday's game against the Patriots at Gillette, the 6-foot-2, 218-pound Forte is a good place to start. He entered the NFL as Chicago's second-round draft choice in 2008 out of Tulane.

Borges: Blood, sweat and Jeers

The Chicago Bears, like bears everywhere this time of year, have a choice to make. They can go into hibernation for the winter or they can stand on their hind legs like grizzlies and lash out at the world one last time before the snow falls.The choice is theirs to make and in the case of the Bears of Chicago, whatever they choose will impact the Patriots. Sunday the Patriots either will be like Grizzly Adams or simply grizzled, depending on whether or not the Bears stop fighting each other and start fighting their opponent.

Trestman cuts down on Cutler’s decision-making: Are big changes coming?

Halfway through the game Sunday against the Dolphins, the Bears decided that less of Jay Cutler was a good thing. Matt Forte ran the ball only two times in the first half in part, coach Marc Trestman said Monday, because four other plays were turned into passes by Cutler. Two were changed at the line, he said, and two more were run/pass options in which Cutler chose to throw. “We threw it a little bit more early, but that wasn’t the plan,” Trestman said....

Trestman has to get much tougher on his underachieving players

Three questions came to mind Sunday as the mushroom cloud settled over Soldier Field and refused to budge. Do you want Marc Trestman running the Bears? Do you want Brandon Marshall running the Bears’ locker room? Do you want Jay Cutler run out of town? Answers: Not like this, no and like that’s going to happen. Those of us who respect Trestman and appreciate his mind know that neither respect nor football knowledge necessarily makes a successful NFL head coach....
