Preseason Week 3: Bears’ offense nonexistent, defense pays the price

Here are five big things (and a few small things) that I noticed during the Bears’ dress rehearsal game against the Chiefs. 1.

Chicago Bears: Only matter of time until Bullard takes over as starter

When Jonathan Bullard was drafted in the third round of this year’s NFL Draft, many proclaimed that the former Florida Gator might just be the steal of the entire class, giving the Bears a possible plug-and-play starter as a rookie. Now, it seems as the question is only "when," not "if," that prediction comes true. Given Bullard’s strong performance throughout camp and consistent flashes this preseason, the ...

Preseason Wk 2: First unit improves; depth issues taking toll on roster

Here are five big things (and a few small things) that I noticed during the Bears’ second preseason game against the Patriots. 1. The offensive line, and Jeremy Langford, got rolling You figured the Bears wanted to establish the run game after a subpar outing last week against the Broncos, and that’s exactly what they did, upping their non-quarterback rushing yards from 34 yards last year to 112 this week. ...

The Chicago Bears? More like Chicago Bare Knuckles. The Bears were involved in another training camp brawl today, this time throwing down with the New England Patriots during today’s practice. The first appeared to start with Alshon Jeffery and Pats corner Malcolm Butler grasping each others’ facemasks near the Bears’ sideline and proceeding to pull and shove while both teams started to swarm around them. h ...

Chicago Bears: Fuller injury opens door for young corners to shine

Entering a likely make-or-break season with the Chicago Bears this year, a knee injury during the preseason is really not what the doctor ordered for third-year cornerback Kyle Fuller. While it's being called “soreness” and doesn’t seem to be overly serious, this setback will keep Fuller out of this week’s joint practices with the New England Patriots in Foxborough as well as Thursday’s preseason matchup wi ...

Preseason Week 1: Bears offense struggles; Hall, Floyd flash potential

Here are five observations from the Bears' first preseason game against the Denver Broncos. Believe it or not, a couple of positives did emerge from what otherwise was a tremendous buzzkill: 1.

Is the Chicago Bears’ next quarterback currently in New England?

No, Tom Brady is not breaking up with Bill Belichick. Think about this for a minute though. Every athlete dreams about playing in front of the home town crown, having the people who were a part of their everyday lives right there to cheer them on. I am pretty sure we have recently seen this is the NBA a time or two. Backup quarterback of the New England Patriots, Jimmy Garoppolo is a native of Arlington Hei ...
