chicagotribune.com — Outside the Bears locker room after Sunday's devastating 27-14 loss to the Dolphins, a voice resembling Brandon Marshall's carried the loudest.

Marshall calls Bears' 3-4 record 'unacceptable'

chicagotribune.com — It doesn't look like that schedule backloaded with home games is going to do the Bears much good. Not this season. The problem isn't just that the Bears lost 27-14 on Sunday to the Dolphins at Soldier Field.

Tannehill, Dolphins have rhythm, Bears don't

chicagotribune.com — Proper rhythm can be difficult to describe but easy to identify in football. You either have it or you don't.
