Dan Hampton speaks like he played—all out. Appearing on “Kap & Haugh” on 87.7-FM and Comcast SportsNet simulcast, the Bears Hall of Famer laid into coach Marc Trestman for his “fair” coaching style. Hampton took aim at Trestman’s policy of letting different players be captain each week. “If you’re in a daycare, you might want
The Bears haven’t won a regular-season game at Solder Field since Dec. 9, 2013. In fact, the last victory at Soldier Field by a Chicago pro team was in March—by the Blackhawks. So, maybe that’s why Jay Cutler’s wife, Kristin Cavallari, felt she needed to bring the Bears good luck on Sunday against the Dolphins.
Even the announcers need to work on their game in the preseason. Bulls analyst Stacey King was in mid-season playoff form last night when Jimmy Butler capped a 20-point fourth quarter by hitting a three-pointer at the buzzer to defeat the Hawks. Stacey gave us “Jimmy B,” “Jimmy Buckets,” “Jimmy Jordan” and, of course, his
Doesn’t it seem like the cameras during an NFL telecast follow Jay Cutler’s every move? Not true, according to a recent study by the Wall Street Journal.

Eight years ago today, the visiting Bears (5-0) were trailing 20-0 at halftime against the Arizona Cardinals (1-4) on Monday Night Football. Many viewers went to bed figuring the Cards and coach Dennis Green had the upset in hand. Then stuff happened. Mike Brown and Peanut Tillman returned fumbles for TDs, and Devin Hester ran
Michael Jordan rarely took a game off. Jordan played in all 82 games in nine of his 15 NBA seasons, including his last at age 40 with the Wizards. And, he didn’t just show up. In 13 seasons with the Bulls, Jordan was held to single digits once, four games after returning from a broken

If anyone knows Jameis Winston, it’s fellow Heisman Trophy winner and two-sport legend Bo Jackson. But from what he has witnessed recently of Winston’s off-the-field exploits, Jackson is not happy. In fact, Bo says he’s done trying to help Winston. In a candid interview with Jim Rome on CBS Sports Radio, Jackson said the troubled
Jason “White Chocolate” Williams is 38. You might remember him from his NBA days with the Kings, Grizzlies, Heat and Magic. You know, the guy who could get away with Globetrotter-like tricks during a real game. Well, he’s still doing it. This highlight reel comes from an Orlando Pro-Am game.
I guess you can call the new book by Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim a “tell-all.” In “Bleeding Orange,” Boeheim reveals the grades of star player Carmelo Anthony, who in his only year at the school led the Orange to the NCAA Championship in 2003. Anthony received four Cs and a D in his first semester,
