Santonio Holmes deal potentially savvy for Chicago Bears

Santonio Holmes deal potentially savvy for Chicago Bears
Coming off a 23-catch season and toting weed-stuffed baggage that almost certainly wouldn’t qualify as carry-on, it’s easy to dismiss the Chicago Bears’ mid-August acquisition of former Super Bowl MVP Santonio Holmes. After a prolific career with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Holmes faded into obscurity in Northern New Jersey with a putrid quarterback in a putrid... Read more »

Marquess Wilson must make huge strides for the Chicago Bears
Halfway through a weather-shortened practice on Friday morning (the forecasted rain never actually came), the Chicago Bears broke out of 11-on-11 work and centered attention on Marc Trestman, Jay Cutler and the skill position players, as the No. 1 offense and No. 1 defense focused in on the passing game in 7-on-7s. Eyeballs tend to... Read more »

Chicago Bears running back Jordan Lynch trying to make most of limited reps
For the better part of 20 minutes, media members waited patiently in Bourbonnais on Friday as Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman chatted with former team safety turned defensive quality control assistant Chris Harris. Trestman approached the circle of gathered cameras, microphones and recorders and politely apologized for the lengthy wait. In the background, several... Read more »

Chicago Bears MLB Jon Bostic hoping to rebound from rough rookie year
When the Chicago Bears drafted Florida Gators star middle linebacker Jon Bostic with the 50th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, timing and circumstance meant that expectations were probably never going to be realistic.

Chicago Bears best chance for Super Bowl run is now
For years, the Bears fan collective has screamed that “the McCaskeys are cheap,” or that “they don’t care about winning.” Don’t worry, I am one of you. You are my people. I’m an angry Bears tweeter, who has for a long time disliked the way the family has run the show. But since hiring one... Read more »

Chris Williams looks to give Chicago Bears a new dimension on offense

Chris Williams looks to give Chicago Bears a new dimension on offense
If you blinked you may have missed him. Measuring in at 5’8″ and 175 pounds, wide receiver Chris Williams often looks like a kid among men out on the practice fields of Olivet Nazarene University.

Grading the Chicago Bears 2014 NFL Draft

<b>Round 1: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech</b> <br></br> I have no problem with Fuller as a football player. I just felt there was more value taking a safety with the first pick. That said, CB is a position of need, and I like Fuller, who I believe will remain at corner and not get switched to safety. While a safety might have filled a more pressing immediate need for the Bears, there is no question that the Bears are long in the tooth at the position, and it appears they got a potentially very good player here. <br></br> At just under six feet, Fuller is a smart player with solid instincts and the versatility to line up in the slot or outside. He should start at the nickel until Tillman departs after this season, and has demonstrated the ability to contribute on special teams. <br></br> <b>Grade: B</b>
Recognizing that it was Jerry Angelo’s poor draft record that ultimately led to his demise as the Chicago Bears’ GM, Phil Emery must be cognizant that he needs some draft wins, especially in the early rounds, if his legacy is to end with better results. In his first draft, Emery took a chance on a... Read more »
