Report: Bears to start Clausen over Cutler
Jimmy Clausen
Jimmy Clausen hasn't started a game since 2010 for the Carolina Panthers.
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - With two games left in a dreadful season, the Chicago Bears are reportedly benching their starting quarterback.

The Bears plan to start Jimmy Clausen over Jay Cutler in Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions, ESPN.com reported Wednesday.

Cutler has started all 14 games in his sixth season for the Bears, completing 66.1 percent of his passes for 3,640 yards, 28 touchdowns and an NFL-high 18 interceptions.  Full Story

Conte is smarter than you think
By John McMullen, NFL Editor
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - It shouldn't be news that 25-year-old men think a lot differently than 50-year-olds but Chris Conte's recent comments sure surprised a lot of people.

The oft-injured Chicago Bears safety recently told WBBM radio in the Windy City that playing football means so much to him that he would be willing to do it even if it does take years off the end of his life.

"My life will revolve around football to some point, but I'd rather have the experience of playing and, who knows, die 10, 15 years earlier than not be able to play in the NFL and live a long life," he said. "It's something I've wanted to do with my life and I wanted to accomplish. And I pretty much set my whole life up to accomplish that goal. So I don't really look toward my life after football because I'll figure things out when I get there and see how I am."  Full Story
