Camping with the Bears Day-12

The final morning of Bears camp started with the crowd waiting in a cold, rain swept line to get a final glimpse of this very talented Bears team in Bourbonnais. The sun made as brief an appearance as the pads, as they quickly came off after some run blocking work during 11 on 11 drills. Practice was back on the normal fields as the Olivet Tigers began training camp of their own across the street on Ward Fi ...

Camping with the Bears Day-12

The Chicago Bears practiced this morning under overcast skies and the threat of rain, but that did not dampen the enthusiasm of the crowd in Bourbonnais. The Bears broke in the new field turf installed for the Olivet Nazarene Tigers on a day that celebrated our active duty military courtesy of the USO. Defense was King for the day and they ended the day with Chris Conte intercepting a Jordan Palmer pass in ...

Camping with the Bears Day-11

Day 11 of training camp saw an estimated 20,000 people in attendance on a sunny and muggy Sunday afternoon. The normally mundane and uneventful warm ups were made a little more interesting by Brandon Marshall. Marshall spied a young lad sporting his jersey along the sideline and motioned for him to join him in stretching with the team. Reluctantly Anjelo Novelli age 9 from Elgin Il, joined him for about the ...

Bears vs Philadelphia Recap

Last night the Chicago Bears played their first preseason game at Soldier field, A nice 34- 28 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. Preseason games are full of miscues and mistakes and Friday night was no exception. Viewers were treated to some extra pixels courtesy of the FOX Sports feed from Soldier field. Most of the first quarter was essentially unviewable due to this error. Seems like everybody, even ...

Camping with the Bears- Day11

If yesterday’s practice was labeled slow paced compared to previous days then today’s was glacial. Trestman does nothing haphazard and today’s practice was slow by design to ensure the players are ready for Friday’s first preseason game against the Eagles. There were limited plays in pads with first, second, and third strings getting about 8 plays in each. The standout of first team was the blocking of the ...

Camping with the Bears Day-10

Day 10 of Bears training camp was an overcast and dreary event. The weather seemed to dictate the tone, as the malaise that lingered over the field today was palatable as well to the crowd. The crowd was subdued as nobody seemed in a mood to cheer or do much of anything. I’ve been to funerals with more action than today’s practice. The offense was without Martellus Bennett who was suspended from the team fo ...

Camping with the Bears Day-9

The temperature and humidity has reached the dog days of summer and the Baha Men have asked the question; Who let the Dogs out? Well it seems Mel Tucker has answered that question today. Training camp was moved from 3:00 PM to 11:00 this morning due to forecast inclement weather, which had a direct impact on the size of the crowd. The threat of thunderstorms and a much earlier start did not dampen the enthu ...

Camping with the Bears Day-7

Day 7 of Bears camp is in the books on a hot humid stagnant day. The air might have been slow and heavy but practice was spirited with the defense winning the day overall. Lance Briggs was a one man wrecking crew on defense today. Lance deflected 4 balls in pass coverage during 11 on 11 drills. His last tip resulted in a Danny McCray interception sending Jay and company quickly back to the sidelines in the ...

Camping with the Bears Day-6

Day 6 of Bears training camp has come and gone and there are still lingering questions. Who will get the starting nod at the safety positions? Who will back up Matt Forte? Will Shea McClellan win the staring strong side linebacker? Does the Chicago hotdog cart lady ever change the water in that thing? The big hit today again was the competition between the punters Tress Way and Patrick O’Donnell. O”Donnell ...
