  Bears | Alshon Jeffery doesn't practice    Thu Dec 18, 04:41 PM

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (non-injury related) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: Jeffery should play, as injury doesn't seem to be a factor here. Overall his value has taken a hit, since the offense is a mess and Jimmy Clausen is the starting quarterback now. As that is the case, he's no more than a low-end WR2 with a ton of risk this weekend.

  Bears | Jay Cutler to start next week?    Thu Dec 18, 04:02 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler was benched just for this week against the Detroit Lions, according to head coach Marc Trestman. Cutler will be active and serve as the backup in Week 16. 'We're not playing well enough at the quarterback position on a consistent basis,' Trestman said.

Footballguys view: Benched "for just this week" sounds a lot like "we'd like to move on now please" as there is no purpose we can see for benching Cutler unless the Bears want off the roller coaster. Jimmy Clausen gets the start but he shouldn't be in your lineups as he is barely a QB3.

  Bears | Jimmy Clausen to start in Week 16    Wed Dec 17, 06:34 PM

  Bears | Jay Cutler benched this week    Wed Dec 17, 06:34 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will be benched in favor of QB Jimmy Clausen in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Should anyone be surprised? Cutler has phenomenal natural talent, but even Jeff George thinks he needs to play better. Cutler is a lot like George--big arm, big attitude, gets coaches fired, and never plays up to his potential. This move could be a last-ditch desperation move by Marc Trestman so he can keep his job as the head coach. We had high hopes for Trestman when he took over in Chicago, but he's been held back by Cutler's play. Oh yeah, it didn't help the Bears extended Cutler's contract in January of 2014 either. What a mess.

  Bears | Marc Trestman likely to be fired    Tue Dec 16, 09:26 PM

The Chicago Bears are expected to fire head coach Marc Trestman, according to a source. The team's ownership met Tuesday, Dec. 16, after the team's Week 15 loss against the New Orleans Saints. It is uncertain if general manager Phil Emery, who hired Trestman, also will be shown the door.

Footballguys view: It's a sad way for things to end for Trestman. He's a bright coach, but he's limited by the play of his quarterback Jay Cutler. With Cutler signing a $126 million contract earlier in 2014, there's no way the team is going to trade him or let him go. We're hopeful that Trestman can catch on with a different team as an assistant coach.

  Bears | Jay Cutler's time ticking?    Sat Dec 13, 05:49 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's time as the starting quarterback could be ticking, in the opinion of NationalFootballPost.com's Jason Butt. The Bears promoted QB David Fales to the 53-man roster Saturday, Dec. 13.

Footballguys view: Bears fans may have this at the top of their wish list right now. However, Cutler just signed a $126 million contract in January of 2014. Coming up in 2015, there's still $19.5 million in dead money left on his deal. There's no way they'll just dump Cutler, but there's a small chance they could trade him away....provided there's a team who wants to take on that deal. It's a mess right now, but we think Cutler stays in Chicago. We're not so sure head coach Marc Trestman gets another shot next year.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall talks Jay Cutler    Tue Dec 9, 03:59 PM

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall recently said he would have buyer's remorse regarding the team paying QB Jay Cutler a seven-year, $126 deal. However, Marshall did add that the blame for the Bears' offensive struggles doesn't solely lie on Cutler's shoulders. 'It doesn't always fall on him. I guess that's why those guys are the highest paid players out there. Because when you win and everything is going good, they get all the glory. And when it's bad, they take more [blame] than what they should take.'

Footballguys view: Marshall is going to stand up for his guy. These two have had a close relationship dating back to when they started their pro careers with the Denver Broncos.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall supports Jay Cutler    Mon Dec 8, 11:11 PM

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall said he supports QB Jay Cutler, but he also said that he doesn't understand why the team's offense has been so out of sync this season.

Footballguys view: Well of course he does. Marshall and Cutler's relationship go back to when they first came into the league the same year as draft picks by the Denver Broncos. They're good friends and longtime teammates, and that relationship is not going to be fractured because the Bears offense is struggling.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall placed on IR    Mon Dec 8, 03:46 PM

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ribs, lung) was officially placed on Reserve/Injured Monday, Dec. 8. He is done for the year.

Footballguys view: And that's that. Marshall's season is done, and he is now looking towards next season. Marshall carries a $9.5 million cap number in 2015, and there's $13.1 million left in dead money on his contract. The Bears will likely use Marquess Wilson as a starter on the outside opposite Alshon Jeffery.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall out of hospital    Mon Dec 8, 01:00 PM

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ribs, lung) has been released from the hospital, according to head coach Marc Trestman.

Footballguys view: Now, Marshall can begin the road to recovery. We should see Marshall put on season-ending Injured Reserve at some point in the near future. That means Marquess Wilson is likely to take over on the outside opposite Alshon Jeffery.

  Bears | Jay Cutler backed by head coach     Fri Dec 5, 08:55 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will remain the team's starting quarterback the rest of the season as long as he is healthy, according to head coach Marc Trestman.

Footballguys view: Trestman may go down because of his quarterback. We love Trestman's mind for offensive football, but Cutler just isn't getting the job done. The Bears are a disaster right now, and they may look for multiple changes this offseason. Cutler has $19.5 million in dead money remaining on his contract next year, so he's unlikely to be released. Trestman may not get another season with the Bears. We're hopeful he does, but Trestman is certainly on the hot seat right now.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall's season over    Fri Dec 5, 03:54 PM

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ribs, lung) will miss the rest of the season after breaking two ribs and suffering a collapsed lung in Week 14 Thursday, Dec. 4. Marshall remains in a hospital Friday, Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: Marshall took a knee to the back to end his 2014. The Bears were already looking like a team prone to mail it in in any given week from here on out, although Jay Cutler racked up the garbage time numbers this week and could do it again against the Saints next week. Alshon Jeffery should get more targets and more coverage, so his value is unchanged, but Martellus Bennett could remain a PPR monster as Cutler's security blanket with Marshall out.

  Bears | Marquess Wilson, Josh Morgan to step up    Fri Dec 5, 03:53 PM

Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson will likely be used to replace WR Brandon Marshall (ribs, lung) on the outside, while WR Josh Morgan will likely move into the slot-receiving role.

Footballguys view: Wilson is worth stashing in dynasty leagues, as he had been working with Marshall and Jeffery in the offseason and had generated buzz before going down with a shoulder injury in the preseason.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall out at least a week    Fri Dec 5, 02:37 PM

  Bears | Brandon Marshall's season in doubt    Fri Dec 5, 08:17 AM

Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ribs) may have suffered broken ribs Thursday, Dec. 4, and is having his spleen examined as well. His season is in doubt.

Footballguys view: Marquess Wilson would get an extended audition as a starting receiver if Marshall can't return. It sounds like Marshall has a severe rib fracture that could endanger his internal organs if he plays before it is healed. Chances are he's not helping fantasy teams again this year.

  Bears | Martellus Bennett heavily involved    Fri Dec 5, 12:05 AM

Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett had a season-high 12 catches on 15 targets for 84 yards and a score in the team's 41-28 loss to the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Dec. 4.

Footballguys view: With Brandon Marshall in the hospital and Matt Forte finding no room to run, Bennett picked up the slack for the offense. In PPR leagues, he's going to push some teams through to the next round. He'll be a great play against the Saints next week.
