One of the weirdest plays of the NFL season so far just happened at the end of today’s first half in Chicago, when the Bears’ Marcus Cooper returned a blocked Steelers field goal all the way to the one-yard line. Cooper slowed up right at the end of his journey, and the special teamer suffered the consequences. He was…
Roberto Aguayo’s harrowing, steep spiral out of the NFL continued today, as the living embodiment of an imposter syndrome nightmare was released for the second time this offseason, this time by the Chicago Bears.
The Bears’ first dose of 2017 preseason action—and therefore the first game of their Mike Glennon era—initially looked pretty good, in that they won their coin toss tonight against the Broncos. But things started going south, uh, pretty much immediately after:
Some people are fans of the Chicago Bears. But many, many more people are NOT fans of the Chicago Bears. This 2017 Deadspin NFL team preview is for those in the latter group. Read all the previews so far here.
Monday night, I wrote about the lawsuit a Packers fan had filed against the Bears. Russell Beckman, a Wisconsin resident who is also a Bears season ticket holder, is suing the team because, he claims, they prevented him from going on the field in his Packers gear.
The Packers and Bears have played 194 times. Chicago and Green Bay are less than four hours apart, and fans from either team frequently attend Bears-Packers game at the opposing team’s field. This is fine. This is how sports work. But one thing the Bears won’t stand for is letting a fan in Packers gear stand on…
After suffering two concussions in a five-week span, Chicago Bears linebacker Leonard Floyd had his rookie season cut short last year—with effects that have lingered well into the offseason, he says.
Jay Cutler’s bare ass is still a free agent, but maybe not for long. The ex-Bears quarterback is reportedly interested in working as a broadcaster.
I made the mistake of going outside this weekend instead of turning off my lights, pulling my curtains, and binging on schadenfreude from the Bears’ shocking draft decision to give up two thirds and a fourth to move up one spot to grab QB Mitchell Trubisky, whom they could’ve had at No. 3 overall anyway. So I’m gonna…
Nobody was more surprised at the Chicago Bears’ decision to send four draft picks to the San Francisco 49ers for the right to move up one spot and draft Mitch Trubisky than Trubisky himself. That’s because, according to Trubisky, the Bears only worked him out once, and never communicated with him in the weeks leading…
Last night, Chicago traded up to take North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky with the second overall pick, enraging Bears fans but absolutely delighting this Packers fan who turned up at the draft party to, presumably, mock his conference rivals.
The Browns started tonight’s NFL draft by following through on rumors that they would take Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett first. Then things got weird.
The rape charge against former San Francisco 49er and Chicago Bear Ray McDonald was dismissed today after the woman told a judge that she just wanted to put the case behind her, according to the San Jose Mercury News. The woman also reached a financial settlement with McDonald, the Mercury News reported, and she told…
NFL players Deiondre’ Hall and Makinton Dorleant, who both played football at Northern Iowa, were arrested early Sunday morning in connection with a bar fight in Cedar Falls, Iowa.
Mike Glennon, an NFL quarterback nobody has thought about for at least two seasons, suddenly found himself in the news this week when it was reported that he was going to score a contract that would pay him in the neighborhood of $15 million per year. That hypothetical has reportedly become a reality.
Here’s a sure thing: Jay Cutler is done with the Bears. Or, more accurately, the Bears are done with Jay Cutler—they reportedly told him in his January exit interview that they’ll be seeking other quarterbacks for 2017. One big question is whether the Bears can get anything for him.
The NFL Players Association will warn free agents not to sign with the Bears if the Illinois State Senate passes a new bill designed to cut off opportunities for workers’ compensation disability benefits to professional athletes at age 35, rather than the current mark of age 67.
The Chicago Bears have won three games this season, and they looked to reclaim a little bit of their dignity by possibly upsetting the Green Bay Packers in overtime after they scored 17 points in the fourth quarter to tie today’s game with a minute and change. Aaron Rodgers and his teammates had a different idea.
Chicago Bears running back Ka’Deem Carey had one of the “C” decals knocked off his helmet on a hit by Packers linebacker Joe Thomas in today’s game.
