Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice said he had no problems with quarterback Jay Cutler walking away from him during Monday’s win over the Cowboys. Tice seemed no more bothered by Cutler’s continued churlishness than Bears fans who are willing to overlook anything if Cutler wins.

The veteran assistant said he was “really angry,” at a failed third-and-short conversion, and had already told Cutler that.

“At a certain point,” Tice said via Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com, “probably enough was enough.”

“Jay and I are good,” Tice continued. “I really admired his play the other night. I really admire how he’s bought in. It’s an emotional game. Sometimes I’m sure we all wish we could handle some things differently. Not to say that he should have handled that differently, but it’s an emotional game. Jay and I are fine.

Does anyone know how he's been doing on the field?

Jeffery has decent stats for a rookie WR. Nothing to get excited about but he has been making contributions.

Would it be fair to say that he's taking some doubles away from Marshall, or is BM just playing THAT well?

Hall of Fame former Chicago Bears defensive end Richard Dent was the MVP of Super Bowl XX, but it still bugs him, nearly three decades later, that that was the only Super Bowl he ever played in. And Dent blames two men for that: Mike Ditka and Doug Flutie.

Dent said that the 1985 Bears thought they were going to be a dynasty, but Ditka cost them the opportunity to reach more Super Bowls after that year by failing to figure out the quarterback situation and playing the 24-year old Flutie when starter Jim McMahon got hurt.

Dent: “Well, we are going to be king of the hill all the time. And we came back three years in a row and had home-field advantage. Our coach couldn’t figure out the right quarterback to play. The disappointing part to me is that we only got one out of it. We should have been the first team ever to win three Super Bowls in a row. It was there in the taking, but we didn’t manage that one position right.”

The Bears lost in the playoffs after the 1987 and 1988 seasons, too, and Flutie wasn’t around for those, so he doesn’t deserve any of the blame for that. But Dent is only the most recent of a number of former Bears who have said they’re still angry that Ditka botched the quarterback situation in 1986. That failure to repeat remains a bitter pill to swallow for the 1986 Bears, all these years later.

Awww, poor Dent. I feel so bad for him. Rolling Eyes

Please, they lost to the Redskins both years who had journeymen Jay Schroeder and Doug Williams at QB. That's a poor excuse for failure. If the Bears' defense had done their job, they could have and should have beat them.

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was fined $10,000 for taunting, after flipping the ball at Vikings cornerback A.J. Jefferson last week, according to the Chicago Tribune. Cutler was scrambling, and heading out of bounds, when he stiff-armed Jefferson and then tossed the ball at him in a mocking manner.

The hamstring tear that has sidelined Brian Urlacher could end the future Hall of Famer's career, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday.

The Chicago Bears middle linebacker has a Grade 2 hamstring tear that typically keeps players out 3-6 weeks. It's a possibility that Urlacher is not ready to return before Bears season is over -- whether that's in the regular season or playoffs.

Sources told Schefter "it's not out of the realm of possibility" Urlacher could retire after the season. He'll be a free agent in the spring and has had no "substantial" talks with the organization. That could mean Urlacher has played his final game.

The Chicago Bears placed kicker Robbie Gould on the injured reserve list with a season-ending calf muscle injury Tuesday and signed veteran kicker Olindo Mare.

Gould wasn’t the only player to land on injured reserve. Safety Craig Steltz (chest) and cornerback Sherrick McManis (knee) were also placed on IR, dealing a blow to special teams depth.

Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery has not been a happy camper this week after three offensive pass interference penalties were called against him in Sunday’s loss to the Packers. Bears receivers coach Darryl Drake is worried that Jeffery is going to beat himself up about that so much that it will affect his play going forward.

Drake: “The thing I’m trying to make sure of is that it doesn’t destroy him from a mental standpoint. He’s fragile right now.”

The best indication of how severe a particular injury might be is usually in the steps the team takes in the hours after it occurs. So when the Bears released wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher on Monday after injuries to running back Matt Forte and safety Chris Conte, the focus went right to concern over whether one or both of those starters would be lost for the Detroit Lions game next Sunday.

“We’re evaluating still all of the players,” coach Lovie Smith said. “So we don’t have any more information from yesterday.”

The Bears have sent out requests for interviews to some coaches for head coaching options, looks like Lovies days in Chicago might be done.
