2014 Chicago Bears Mock Off Season

With Free Agency just over five days away, each fan base dreams of what their team(s) will accomplish this off season. The salary cap jumped up exactly $10 million from a year ago, with that comes more cash to spend. While the Chicago Bears appear to be strapped for space, there are many ways the team can create extra space. As of right now, the team currently projected to have right around $9.36 million to ...

What should the Bears do at Defensive End?

The problem I keep coming back to with this off-season is that the Bears need a DE. Even if Peppers is restructured and Wootton is re-signed, the Bears need a starting calibre DE. The failure of the McClellin pick has left them with very little pass rush in the cupboard.   This is where the problem begins as this offseason does not appear to have a DE group, in free agency or the draft, that excites me at a ...

Cubs Select Kris Bryant 2nd Overall in the MLB Draft

Draft day  is a big day for Cubs fans and many thought Mark Appel or Jonathan Gray would be the guy they would select with the 2nd overall pick. Instead  it was Kris Bryant, a third baseman from the University of San Diego. Bryant, who also can play the outfield, is widely regarded as the top position player in the draft and by some the top player in all of the draft. He hit 31 home runs in 228 AB's last ye ...

Who Should the Cubs Select No. 2 Overall in the MLB Draft?

Gray, Appel. Gray, Appel. Gray, Appel. Bryant. Who will it be? The MLB Draft will take place on June 6, and it is one that Cubs fans will be paying attention to more than ever. The Astros have the No. 1 pick, and it is very unclear as to who they will choose as well, as there is no clear standout among the bunch. Three names drawing the most attention are Mark Appel, a starting pitcher from Stanford, Jonath ...

Bulls Draft Board 2012

Aside from a last minute shakeup, it's looking like the Bulls aren't going to move down in the draft. Houston was looking to include us in many trades as a third partner. After a pair of trades with Minnesota and then Milwaukee,  the Rockets might be where they want to wind up, as far as the draft is concerned. Sacramento is also looking to move some parts. The Lakers, Clippers, and Trailblazers are openly ...

7 Intriguing 1st Round Prospects

The Bears will be on the clock with the 19th selection in just under 72 hours from now, and no one can really give a clear, nor definitive answer of whom Emery and crew are targeting. All we have are ideas. Lovie has met with several players and had dinner, or lunch with both Kendall Wright (Baylor) and Stephen Hill (Georgia Tech). But still things like this are commonplace in the scouting process, just bec ...
