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 ...

Technology for the Sake of Having Technology? And Other Points of View

Bears Rich Campbell at the Chicago Tribune makes thinks this is a good sign. I would agree: "I want to single out defensive end Jared Allen for two stops he made against the run in third-and-short situational drills. Allen’s affinity for sacks is well documented. On third-and-short, though, when the offense has the luxury to either run or pass, Allen read the running plays and executed accordingly. His sudd ...

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 ...

Defense Helps Offense and Other Points of View

Bears Rich Campbell at the Chicago Tribunenotes a few observations from Hall of Fame reciever Michael Irvin: "Irvin pointed out how Marshall uses his size and speed to separate on horizontal routes. At 6-foot-5, Marshall is imposing. So when Marshall bears down (pun intended!) on a cornerback at the top of his route, a cornerback has to respect Marshall’s physical presence, sometimes by backing off. That of ...

Depth a Concern at What Some Might Consider to Be a Surprising Position

Mark Potash at the Chicago Sun-Times notes that reciever Chris Williams had some first-team reps in practice. Potash apparently isn't ready to concede the third reciever positon to Marquess Wilson like the rest of us: "Still waiting for someone to emerge as the No. 3 receiver. Marquess Wilson leads but almost by default. Williams and [Eric] Weems have been the most impressive challengers. But it’s early. " ...

Cutler for MVP Talk Just That: Talk

David Haugh at the Chicago Tribune on wide reciever Brandon Marshall's "Jay Cutler for MVP" talk: "Offseason signs of growth in Cutler depict the man Marshall describes. But as good as Marshall's intentions were, casting Cutler the player as a preseason MVP candidate only establishes unrealistic expectations set unnecessarily high. Cutler needs to run the offense. Protect the football. Make smart throws and ...

Camping with the Bears Day-5

Day five of training camp was a little slow today and that seemed by design. There was no drama or competition with the punters though and practice seemed to flow at a slightly slower pace than on previous days. Alshon Jeffery and Jerimiah Ratliff were back in the line up with the only notable spectators still being Kyle Long and Chris Conte. Tim Jennings suited up and performed some drills but remained on ...

Being Tougher Than Tough and Other Points of View

Bears Mark Potash at the Chicago Sun-Times quotes linebackers coach Reggie Herring on Jon Bostic: "Right now, his ability to play any position and be effective — to me, he’s more valuable than any guy I got. He’s the only guy right now that I feel comfortable that can line up at every position and know what to do and be effective." I also thought this nugget from Potash was interesting: "One particularly in ...
