"Monday Night Football" is a big deal for NFL players. And when the game is played less than 20 miles from your high school, you're bound to feel extra excitement. That was the case Monday for Bears defensive tackle Henry Melton. The native of Grapevine, Texas, spoke with RedEye about Bears fans at Cowboys Stadium and roughing up Tony Romo. Henry Melton: You could see all the Bears fans when we were coming in. It looked like a Bears tailgate out there. I was really surprised.

Welp, the Bears paid Jay Cutler. Paid him like they landed on Boardwalk with three hotels and a Risk ten-army on top. (You make some rules changes to get through Chicago winters.) And whether or not you agree they overpaid for No. 6, all Bears fans can agree the defense has to get fixed real quick-like. With the 14th pick in the upcoming draft, the Bears have a shot at a great playmaker on defense, such as Michigan State cornerback Darqueze Dennard, Florida defensive end Dominique Easley, or even Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

Patrick Mannelly is a 6-foot-5-inch, 15-year NFL veteran who has seen it all. Yet ask the Bears long snapper to pick one offensive teammate he is most excited to watch, and he starts giggling like a 5-foot-6-inch Bears junkie who spends Sundays on a couch with a beer and a laptop, just like the rest of us. "That's easy," he says immediately. "Brandon Marshall. " Mannelly is a massive man - if you were at a restaurant and he walked in, all heads would turn. Except, of course, if Marshall had walked in 10 minutes earlier.

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.

So THAT'S what it looks like when Jay Cutler smiles. In fact, Monday's Bears win illustrated not just what his smiles look like but where they come from. For instance, when the offensive line gives Cutler time to throw, he smiles. And when best buddy Brandon Marshall gives him a jump ball target as large as Shaq in the post, he smiles. And when he flips a pass off his back foot to a sprinting Devin Hester for a touchdown, yes, the cantankerous quarterback is all smiles. Speaking of that beautiful touchdown, Hester smiles when he watches the replay and sees that he did indeed have both hands beneath the...

I'm about to commit a Chicago felony worse than ketchupping a hot dog. This column is the equivalent of moving a lawn chair out of a freshly shoveled parking spot. I'm going to compare this year's Bears defense to the immortal 1985 defense. You mighta hearda dose guys? Now, before you throw your block-letter Ditka vest at me in disgust, check the stats the 2012 team has put up so far. > > 2012 Bears through six games: 78 points allowed, 21 turnovers, 5 TDs, 21 sacks > > 1985 Bears through six games: 98 points allowed, 19...

Abracadabra, the Bears are 3-0. If the season ended today, the Bears would be in a three-way tie with New Orleans and Seattle for home-field advantage in the NFC. Congratulations. Of course, NFL seasons don't typically end after three weeks. And it's very difficult to split a home field three ways. Still, Bears fans should be cautiously optimistic. This is a team that has demonstrated, three times, a technical ability to win a football game against another football team. Buuuuuut.

Fans, players, coaches, even beer vendors were relieved when the NFL finally agreed to a new contract with its referees. So now the officiating can stop being part of the story, right? Eh, maybe not. We'll always be talking about the calls on the field. Which gave us an excuse to "officiate" Monday night's Bears game at Dallas.   PREGAME Bad call: At 6:36 p.m. CDT, LeBron James tweets, "Less than a hour til GameTime!! #CowboyNation. " Chicago fans already dislike you, dude.

As Phil Emery prepares for his second Bears draft, he would be wise to study his predecessor Jerry Angelo. The Bears will pick in the first, second, fourth, fifth and sixth rounds of the 2013 draft. RedEye takes a look at Angelo's best and worst from those rounds. FIRST ROUND BEST - Tommie Harris, defensive tackle, 2004 WORST - Michael Haynes, defensive end, 2003 Angelo's poor track record in the first round is well-documented, and we could debate his best and worst picks till the cows come home.

Brian Urlacher made headlines this week when, in response to a question about fans and media calling for a coaching change, the Bears linebacker said: "Two of the people I don't care about: fans or media. " He went on to say that the criticism from fans and media bothers him "because those people don't know what they're talking about, obviously. " He also criticized Bears fans for booing the team at the end of the first half of Sunday's Bears-Packers game. Many fans responded unfavorably to Urlacher's comments, but does he have a point?

When Rod Marinelli joined the Bears coaching staff in 2009, one of his first initiatives was a name change. This wasn't the coach's Ochocinco moment - his name is still Rod Marinelli. Instead, down came "Defensive Line" from the meeting room door and up went his preferred moniker: "Rush Men. " The message was clear: Get the quarterback. They have. In 2012, the Bears are tied for eighth in the league with 32 sacks, but 29 have come from the D-line, ranking them second to Cincinnati in that category.
