NFL plays are over in seconds, but you might not believe what goes on in players' heads in that short time. With that mind, RedEye brings takes you Inside the Helmet. During the first quarter of Thursday's Bears-Packers game, both offenses were locked down. The Packers faced second-and-16 from the Bears 39 when Bears rookie Shea McClellin nabbed his first NFL sack, which he shared with third-year defensive end Corey Wootton. McClellin and Wootton tell the story of sacking Aaron Rodgers .   Corey Wootton: We had a "pirate" called, which is a stunt by myself and the...

Seven years. Seven! Years! That's the length of Jay Cutler's new contract with the Bears. Was it a good deal or bad deal for Chicago? Two RedEye contributors duke it out. Smart Move, Bears By Matt Lindner Jay Cutler needs the Bears, but the Bears need Jay Cutler even more. Now the most polarizing athlete in the history of Chicago is ours to debate for another seven years. In one fell swoop, Bears GM Phil Emery nearly broke the internet Thursday morning by announcing he had signed the greatest quarterback in franchise history - that's not a misprint - to a deal that'll keep him in town through...

Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers were top-five picks in almost every fantasy draft. If you took one of these three, you are automatically thinking championship. But after two weeks they've looked nothing like fantasy studs. Will this trio rebound, or did you draft fool's gold? Tom Brady The master of style has compiled 552 yards passing, three touchdowns and an interception, though the Patriots have other issues. They face tough defenses in the coming weeks (Baltimore, Buffalo, Denver and Seattle)

It could have been Chicago's dream come true: Winning a division title at the expense of its hated rival and earning a home playoff game next week.  Yet the city got its worst nightmare: the Packers celebrating yet another huge victory in Chicago, and the Bears going home for the winter.  The soul crusher came with 38 seconds remaining. Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, in his first game back from a broken collarbone, found Randall Cobb for a 48-yard touchdown pass on fourth-and-8.

I know this comes as a crushing blow to Bears fans everywhere, but the Green Bay Packers will not be defending their Super Bowl title this year. We have the N.Y. Giants to thank for that. Give those guys a treat. On Sunday, the Giants exposed the Packers' Swiss cheese defense, cruising to a 37-20 win at Lambeau Field. They did it through the air, on the ground and inside the heads of the Packers. Earlier Sunday, Baltimore ousted the surprising Houston Texans, setting up an NFL final four of the Giants, Ravens, San Francisco...

It's Bears-Packers week, and it's not like we ever need extra motivation to talk smack to the Packer backers. In fact, I've already purchased four bricks of Jewel-brand cheddar cheese and blown them up with M-80s. (You may be more muted in expressing your distaste; it's cool.) If you ever wanted to pounce on your frenemies to the north, they may never be more nervous than they will be Thursday. Because they know that even though it's only Week 2, their green-and-gold postseason destiny will be on the line.

The consensus among Vegas oddsmakers this week has the over-under in Thursday's Bears-Packers game at 51.5. Why is this relevant to fantasy football? Because we should be in for a shootout, and if you have Bears or Packers, you should play them. Let's look at how key players on both sides have fared against each other recently. Jay Cutler In the one game he played against the Cheeseheads in 2011, Cutler threw for 300-plus yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. In two games in 2010, he threw for one score and three interceptions.

Has your afterglow faded from Monday night's historic Bears win? Seriously, put some pants on. Or at least throw on a robe. And yes, I said "historic. " I searched through Pro-Football-Reference.com to find a Bears-Packers game where Chicago was a bigger underdog and pulled off the upset. The site's Vegas line data goes back to 1978, and no Bears win over Green Bay since then had a steeper line than Monday's Green Bay -10.5. Ever. So if you feel like your exuberation should be muted because the Bears did it against Seneca Wallace and not Aaron Rodgers,...

It's Christmas card time and I have only one this year. And it goes to the Detroit Lions. Dear bankrupt, sorry, toads of the NFL, Thank you for your disgusting, lackluster attempts at football this season. While real football franchises such as the Packers and Bears struggled with injuries, you had none. You had the division title given to you on a silver platter, and you were not man enough to take it. Ridiculous losses against the Eagles and Ravens have lowered you to butt clown status.

The nightmare scenario is upon us. Aaron Rodgers returns Sunday for the Packers, and the Bears will not be able to stop him. That's because the Bears can't stop anybody. My favorite reaction from the Bears stomping by the Eagles was this: "Let's burn the tape. " Yeah, let's burn the tape. Hey, Jay Cutler, when your agent sits down with the Bears and pitches a ridiculous contract, I'd like to say, "Um, sorry Jay, didn't get a chance to review your performance this year. We burned the tapes.

Green Bay all-Earth quarterback Aaron Rodgers is going to play Sunday. Honestly, you knew he would. Destiny and stuff, man. This is a playoff game, and if he sat he'd be downgraded to mere demigod status across Wisconsin. No more free refills on cheese curds OR Spotted Cow. (He would still receive complimentary seasonal snowmobile and jet ski service on over 1,400 lakes statewide.) Maybe Shea McClellin can reprise his one single useful play this season and crack Rodgers in the neck again?

Even Bear fans weren't this desperate to heal their QB.  In a video posted to YouTube Thursday, a certifiably insane Green Bay Packer fan uses PBR, "blood" and tarot cards in what he calls a "mystic ceremony" to heal QB Aaron Rodgers broken collar bone. You know, the broken collar bone the Bears' defense was responsible for.  The video concludes with the occult mixture being spread on a photo of Rodgers', both on his shoulder and then on his groin, for some reason.  There's also a bottle of girdinera next to Rodgers' photo in the...

If you're one of those fans who watched Monday's Bears-Packers game simply to pass the time before the release of "Call of Duty: Ghosts" on Tuesday, well, that's understandable. However, you might not have realized Marc Trestman's team strikes a parallel with the game. You could say the Bears, like the protagonists in "Ghosts," represent "a crippled nation fighting not for freedom, or liberty, but simply to survive. " (That synopsis comes straight from the game's website.) After all, the Bears have so many injuries to key players that the underdog card is one of the few...
