Just “Skip” “Bayless” and Other Points of View

Bears I've paid as little attention as possible to the Chris Kluwe situation because in all liklihood, neither side will turn out to be in the right. Kluwe sounds, and has always sounded, like he's a little less than balanced and the Vikings never seem to handle anything right. But I did find this aspect of the report on whether Kluwe was let go do to his views on gay marriage to be interesting. From Scott ...

Chicago Bears Training Camp Primer: Running backs

One of the Chicago Bears most dangerous offensive weapons is arguably running back Matt Forte. The 6-foot-2, 218 pound back is the perfect fit for Marc Trestman's offensive system, as we saw last season. The Bears rely heavily on Matt Forte as he logged 363 touches last season, the most since his rookie season. So having a productive option behind him will be nice to have for the Bears. They let Michael Bus ...

One thing that we likely won't have to hear about is the quarterback cont ...

The Way to Answer a Simple Question and Other Points of View

Bears Dan Wiederer at the Chicago Tribune interviews Bears head coach Mark Trestman. Its pretty evident that Trestman is reticent about talking relationships with individual players. But ask him about team building and you get a soliloquy. I thought this section was particularly interesting: "And when we play on Sundays, if the talent is the same throughout the league — which it arguably is — which games ar ...
