    How the Bears coached up Tarik Cohen after his punt return mistake in Tampa

    Markus Wheaton was a full participant in practice on Wednesday and wasn’t on the Bears’ injury report Thursday, signaling that the 5-foot-11, 189 pound speedster will make his Bears debut Sunday against his former team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. He’s not the solution for the Bears’ offense, but he could be part of it.  For an offense that’s woefully lacked someone who can reliably stretch the field, Wheaton can at least provide the threat of going deep.

    Carlos Monarrez: Detroit Lions still have plenty to prove

    Prove me wrong, Detroit Lions. Prove me wrong, because I don’t believe in you. Prove to me that your first two wins weren’t mirages, mere strokes of luck against feeble opponents. Prove me wrong, because everyone is starting to believe in you. Including, believe it or not, me. At least a little. The Lions have looked good on their way to leading the NFC North with a 2-0 record. They’ve scored the second-most points in the NFC. They’ve won impressively on the road. They have six sacks and four interceptions. They have a special-teams touchdown. Eric Ebron has outplayed Odell Beckham Jr. So we’re all starting to believe. Everyone’s starting to look at the remaining schedule, starting to look at
