Vasha Hunt-USA TODAY Sports

Lead Draft Analyst Jacob Infante shares his thoughts from watching Tuesday’s Senior Bowl practice in Mobile.

Practices for the 2021 Reese’s Senior Bowl kicked off today, and it proved to be an entertaining day of action from start to finish.

It was an exciting feeling being down at Hancock Whitney Stadium in Mobile, Alabama, and watching the drills proved to be as exciting as anticipated. With the Bears’ offseason underway, they would be wise to pay close...

“‘85: The Greatest Team In Football History” will air on Marquee Sports Network tonight!

Today is the 35th anniversary of the greatest team in Chicago sports history winning their last championship.

While the Chicago Bears have a lengthy championship legacy in the NFL — with the second most titles in league history (9) and the second most league championship game appearances all-time (19) — we’ve only seen one Super Bowl champion.

That 1985 team has been argued to be the greatest team ever, but it’s been a blessing and a curse for those of us that were around to seem...

35 years ago today the Bears last held up the championship trophy. When can we all move on though?

In the 1998 film “The Big Lebowski,” Jeff Bridges’s The Dude accuses of his best friend, Walter Sobchak, played by John Goodman, of living in the past with his constant talk of his ex-wife and constant mentions of his conversion to Judaism.

Sobchak’s retort, “Three thousand years of beautiful tradition from Moses to Sandy Koufax, you’re God damn right...

Column: The Chicago Bears’ Super Bowl XX victory — 35 years ago today — may be their last championship, but their fans set the template on how to celebrate

A Chicago Bears dynasty never happened in the 1980s, as we’re reminded on this day every year, but it can’t erase the fact Bears fans set the template for how to do a Super Bowl. You’re welcome, America.

Former Bears running back Cyril Pinder passed away Saturday at the age of 74.

The game’s unparalleled best battle it out for spots in Super Bowl LV. How our staff sees what has definitely got to give.

They say no one sells hope like the NFL.

Every year, every team has a theoretical shot at playing relevant football. Sometimes, if they’re lucky, the football they play could even be construed as fun, or heaven forbid, aesthetically pleasing. (Unfortunately, that’s not always the case.) In a league where parity runs supreme, it’s...

There’s almost no chance the Detroit Lions trade Matthew Stafford to the Chicago Bears. But a deal elsewhere could be the 1st QB domino to fall that makes a viable option available.

As division rivals, the Chicago Bears know full well how much of an upgrade Matthew Stafford would be at quarterback — and they probably figure the Detroit Lions are unlikely to consider trading him to a team in the NFC North.

Sean Desai, the New “Big Boss” of the Chicago Bears’ Defense

The Bears promoted Sean Desai into their defensive coordinator position. That doesn’t mean everything will remain the same.

The Chicago Bears were guaranteed of a few notable changes on defense following the conclusion of their 2020 season and playoff elimination by the New Orleans Saints. This was before Chuck Pagano officially retired from his DC position days later. Now, there is set to be more moving parts following the most recent updates from their staff.
