Jay Cutler apparently knows how to take a compliment. The Bears quarterback maintained a sense of humor Wednesday when asked if it was true that he had the nicest rear end in the NFL. "According to one person. I guess she's biased," Cutler replied with a big smile at the end of his weekly media session at Halas Hall. The question was in reference to the tweet Cutler's former fiancee, Kristin Cavallari, delivered before Monday's game in Philadelphia. "To the man with the best butt in football, good luck tonight @jaycutler6 ill be watching," Cavallari wrote Monday on her Twitter account,...

***1/2 (out of four) By now, you know if you care about Sleigh Bells. Since 2010's “Treats” demolished what we thought we knew about the sonic combination of sweet and salty (and 2012's “Reign of Terror” mostly maintained excitement with heavier subject matter), Alexis Krauss' vocals and Derek Miller's guitars/production have established that rare thing: An original sound.
