The Chicago Bears have a new wide receiver. Introductions, however, will not be necessary for quarterback Jay Cutler as his new weapon is also a familiar face.

The Bears acquired Brandon Marshall from the Miami Dolphins on Tuesday, a move that overshadowed the beginning of free agency when it was announced. The move reunites Cutler and Marshall, who played together in Denver from 2006-08. Miami will receive Chicago's third-round picks in this year's and the 2013 NFL Draft in exchange for Marshall.

You knew it was going to happen sooner or later. An NFL season couldn't go by without a little Brett Favre drama, could it?

With the Bears floundering under the services of Caleb Hanie, and going 0-2 since Jay Cutler went down with a broken thumb, Chicago is desperately in need of a serviceable quarterback.

Up until the fourth quarter of yesterday's game, the Chicago Bears were being called one of the best teams in football. Their defense was playing great. Their special teams were extra special. And their offense had developed a rhythm.

There are contenders and there are pretenders, and sometimes this late in the season it’s impossible to separate the two. One moment a team like the Buffalo Bills can look like the best team in the AFC East. The next their fast start can fall like a house of cards.

Is Earl Bennett A WR You Should Start Every Week?

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Earl Bennett is back in the lineup for the Chicago Bears. The receiver saw his first action on Monday night since a Week 2 chest injury sidelined him for most of the first half of the season. Upon his return, Bennett caught all five of his targets for 95 yards and a score.

Now he goes up against the Detroit Lions. What should we expect from Bennett this week?

I would expect more of the same as we saw Monday night.

NFL Predictions for Ravens Steelers, Jets Bills and Three Other Playoff-Implicating Games

<p> There are five huge games this Sunday. Who will come out on top?</p>

Every team in the NFL will have reached their halfway point of the season by the time this weekend’s games are finished, which means we are about to be officially in the stretch run. And the timing couldn’t be better. There are several games this weekend that could set the tone for the entire second half.

There are some huge division battles, key tests for top teams, and a few last chances for teams hoping to remain the playoff race. Nothing will be settled this weekend of course, but a whole lot of things will become much clearer.

Mile High Misery: Josh McDaniels' Destruction of the Denver Broncos

Tim Tebow might be bad, but Josh McDaniels’ tenure with the Broncos was much, much worse.

Tim Tebow might be bad, but Josh McDaniels’ tenure with the Broncos was much, much worse.

The only reason to think Tim Tebow is anything other than awful is because you want to.

Those are the paraphrased words of Bomani Jones, ESPN personality and radio host. They were expelled in tweet-form, in no more than 140 characters, yet they comprise easily the best summation of Tebowmania we’ve yet to hear, read or say.
