As the Bears and Henry Melton’s people discuss the possibility of a lucrative contract extension, we pause to remember that Melton was actually a bruising back for a time at the collegiate level. Eat your heart out, Fridge.

Bears Should Franchise Tag Henry Melton

Bears Should Franchise Tag Henry Melton
Devin Hester and Brian Urlacher are not financial decisions for Phil Emery and the Chicago Bears. Neither breaks the economic bank because neither poses a make-or-break impact on the 2013 season. Hester could certainly be a productive kick return and Urlacher would stabilize the middle of the defense but if Marc Trestman is relying on... Read more »

You could make a sound and moat-protected argument the Bears off-season began with the firing of Lovie Smith and subsequent hiring of Marc Trestman as his replacement.

Fourth Meaningless Game Notes

We’re not going to be waiting till the second half happens.  Not a single player on the field will mean anything to the 2010 Chicago Bears.  Here are my first-half notes:   The Bears have finally brought in a backup quarterback that is capable of winning football games.  Todd Collins looked poised and polished at...

Camp Thoughts From an Outsider

I’m basing the following impressions on smatterings of video, coach interviews, Tweets galore, first-hand accounts from friends and articles from everybody who has set foot in Bourbonnais. The Bears seem completely settled at the tackle positions, with Frank Omiyale set to start on the right side.  This immediately becomes the spot to watch for the... Read more »

Audibles From the Long Snapper

Lovie Smith Dines With Nate Allen Reports are out there that Lovie Smith shared breakfast (orders unknown) with South Florida’s flying-up-the-draft-board safety Nate Allen.  The continued focus of the Bears organization on locating a top quality safety reveals at the very least that they’ve realized the mistake of 2009 and vowed not to line up for...
