First off, it was the Cowboys. Secondly, it was zero degrees outside, and they are the modern poster children of the warm weather sissy team. Remember the Ice Bowl in '67? They lost that game too. Nonetheless, thank you Josh McCown. Where have you been all of our lives? Playing with all those toys like that. And so the debate rages on. McCown or Jay Cutler. If Cutler is ready, I say Cutler. But I'm in the minority around here. Certainly, Brian Urlacher disagrees with me but hey, all of the sudden he's a media star after mumbling his way around town for 13 years.

In the end, the Bears' scrappy effort wasn't enough. "It was really a day of missed opportunities," coach Marc Trestman said. Settling for a field goal. Costly penalties. They were just part of the equation in Sunday's 21-19 loss to Detroit at Soldier Field. Gone is the Bears' share of first place in the NFC North, as they dropped to 5-4. Two of those losses are to Detroit. Bears receiver Brandon Marshall, for one, really does not like the Lions (6-3), who lead the division.

MARTELLUS BENNETT The Mike Ditka Award for Best Season Ever for a Chicago Bears Tight End Iron Mike, meet the Black Unicorn. When the Bears signed Bennett after his one season with the N.Y. Giants, nobody knew quite what to expect from the gabby, imaginative player.

I've been playing fantasy football for longer than many RedEye readers have been alive, and there's been one constant in all that time: You build a great fantasy team with running backs. Not anymore. If you want to have a great fantasy team these days, you must have great receivers. The NFL is a passing league and with so many teams using running backs by committee, pass catchers like A.J. Green, Dez Bryant and Brandon Marshall are huge difference makers. Brandon Marshall, Bears I know Jay Cutler is out for an extended period, so you may...

The Bears host the Giants on Thursday in what should be a great game. And it should be a track meet, as the Bears are beaten up on defense and the Giants defense has been nonexistent. Which means both teams could have fantasy game changers. Jay Cutler, Bears quarterback It's Year 5 for Cutler in a Bears uniform, and from a fantasy perspective he is a dud. Cutler lit it up with the Broncos, especially in 2008, but has been a fantasy disappointment with the Bears. This year is a slightly different story, as Cutler is very effective in coach Marc Trestman's...

Tuesday marks the release of "Madden 25," the 25th edition in the video game franchise's epically popular series. To celebrate, Prima Games organized a 25-hour marathon live stream leading up to the game's release.

RedEye talked to Gibbons to see how the 2013 "Madden" Bears stack up against the rest of the league. JAY CUTLER I'm gonna put him in the middle of the [NFL]
