Chicago Bears quarterly review: Debunking 4-0, assessing the scene, handing out awards

Chicago Bears quarterly review: Debunking 4-0, assessing the scene, handing out awards
It’s 7:00 a.m. Friday morning and the sun is rising slowly over Chicago. Out the window on my quiet block I can see folks heading to work, or running with their dogs, but I’m inside thinking about that fire-starter Drew Brees and his band of Saints coming to Soldier Field. The Bears haven’t lost to... Read more »

Chicago Bears season preview part two of two: The offense

Chicago Bears season preview part two of two: The offense
It starts and ends with Jay Cutler. Cutler’s play will dictate how the entire 2013 season goes for the Chicago Bears. Ever since Phil Emery arrived in 2011, the basis of his offseason and draft strategies were to mold his team around the quarterback and to put Cutler in a system where he could thrive,...

Chicago Bears: Devin Hester is worth the risk

Chicago Bears: Devin Hester is worth the risk
The Devin Hester offensive experiment is over. We’ve known this. He enters the 2013 offseason program as a kick returner solely, and the Chicago Bears will pay him $2,940,856 as such. Is $2.9M too much for a return specialist? Well, unless that return specialist is utterly “ridiculous,” most would say, and have been saying, yes.... Read more »

Earth to Devin Hester, the 2013 Chicago Bears are a change of scenery

Earth to Devin Hester, the 2013 Chicago Bears are a change of scenery
Lovie Smith and the Chicago Bears spent a fifth-consecutive offseason in 2012 building hype for what they continued to call the “Hester Package.” Only season-after-season we never saw it come to fruition. Frustrating, right? This much I know about Devin Hester: he relishes being the best, and his continual struggles at wide receiver may be... Read more »

Breaking down the Lions' defense, and keys to a Bears' victory

Breaking down the Lions' defense, and keys to a Bears' victory
Lions’ Front-4 Detroit’s front-4 has been able to put heavy pressure on opposing offenses this season. The sack numbers (12) are down, but the Lions’ defensive front has been much better than the stats show. The mainstay of their front is the ability to consistently get in the back field and disrupt developing plays. Their... Read more »

Any time now, Hester

Any time now, Hester
Devin Hester hasn’t made a lot of plays for the Bears’ offense this season, but when he has, they’ve been big ones. Hester leads all Chicago receivers in average yards per reception with 16.3. But he only has seven catches on the season, as compared to Marshall’s 35 and Jeffery’s 14. Until now, Hester and... Read more »

Bears' receiver depth will be tested without Jeffrey

Bears' receiver depth will be tested without Jeffrey
The depth of the Bears’ wide receiving core will be tested in the coming weeks with the loss of Alshon Jeffrey to a reported right hand fracture. Jeffrey, in the short time he has been with the Bears, has already made a significant impact. His numbers are among the best of the first-year receivers in... Read more »

Bears' balance wins out in Dallas

Bears' balance wins out in Dallas
The Bears are one of the few teams in the NFL that have the ability to win games on either side of the ball. The talent even leaks into the special teams, where the Bears have more than enough to win games with a key ST play. The balance the Bears have found throughout this first quarter... Read more »

Devin Hester can set an NFL record every time he takes the field

Devin Hester can set an NFL record every time he takes the field
All told, 13 teams will have the distinct pleasure of being the next franchise to potentially help Devin Hester set an NFL record. Or two. Hester already holds the all-time League record for combined kick returns for touchdown with 17. The former record holder, Brian Mitchell, took 14 seasons to earn the previous record of...

Deciphering the "Hester Package"

Deciphering the "Hester Package"
It wouldn’t be a Bears off-season without coaches and players giving Hester the highest praise among his WR peers. “Devin Hester is having the best camp of all the receivers,” Jay Cutler said at the end of last week’s OTAs session. That’s just one of many bouquets thrown Hester’s way for his off-season performance this... Read more »
