Offensive Line a major concern for the Bears on Sunday
When the Bears beat Atlanta in week 1, the Bears o-line only gave up 4 sacks. Jay Cutler also had a relatively easy time in the pocket which made the passing game so effective.

"Protect yourself at all times"

"Protect yourself at all times"
That’s the catch phrase every boxing referee uses before the beginning of each match. Some people think it’s just a cliche, but it’s actually an advanced warning. I’ll be the first to tell you I hate Floyd Mayweather Jr. He hasn’t beaten any top notch fighters in my opinion, he’s dodged Miguel Cotto, he hasn’t... Read more »
