In the wake of tonight’s Bears game against the Seahawks (9 p.m. CST), there felt like no better time than now to publish the write up on the Bears’ secondary.

Chicago Bears Add Veteran Receiver, Santonio Holmes; Effect in the Windy City
Going into the season not many would have the expected a glaring need for wide receiver depth. At least, not this early on in the pre-season. Let alone the regular season. Before the second pre-season game the Bears lost what could’ve been a breakout player of sorts. Second year receiver out of Washington State, Marquess... Read more »

2014 Positional Primer: Bostic & McClellin Development, Briggs & Williams Leadership. Reason for Concern?
There’s only one certainty when it comes to the Chicago Bears’ linebacking corps and that is Lance Briggs being the only starter for certain of the linebackers, at the WILL backer (weakside) position. Other than that, it’s said that the MIKE (Middle) and SAM linebacker positions are had from competition. However it doesn’t seem that... Read more »

2014 Chicago Bears Positional Primer: LaMarr Houston, Jared Allen, Willie Young, The Young Guns and Depth Everywhere
I’ve said it before in my “offseason review” and I’ll say it again here; When Phil Emery wants to eat, he eats! Last off-season it was the offensive line, this off-season it was the defensive line. Rightfully so in doing it. Considering the lack of depth, impact and production the defensive line had last season... Read more »

Chicago Bears 2014 Positional Primer: NFL's Best WR Duo, Marquess Wilson & Rest of the Pack
Prior to 2012 the Bears acquired Brandon Marshall for two 3rd round picks. In that very same off-season the Bears traded up in the 2012 NFL Draft to grab Alshon Jeffery. The 2012 season didn’t reap the rewards of those 2 as many would’ve speculated. Marshall really was the only productive piece of an offensive... Read more »

Chicago Bears 2014 Positional Primer: The Backfield, Jordan Lynch and Battle for 3rd String
The 2013 season allowed Forte to tote the pigskin 289 times for 1339 yards. Good for a 4.6 YPC (2nd best mark of his career). He even managed to dispel the myth that he couldn’t finish his runs and managed to find paydirt a career high, nine times. Along with his work on the ground... Read more »

2014 Pre-Primer: Bears Offseason in Review

2014 Pre-Primer: Bears Offseason in Review
“Toiling in mediocrity,” is a phrase that best describes the Chicago Bears previous three season run. Finishing with marks of 8-8, 10-6  and 8-8. This assuredly isn’t the run the Bears organization had in mind when they traded for “franchise quarterback,” Jay Cutler. Such is life in the NFL however. Things never seem to go... Read more »
