Chicago Bears should rebuild in Panthers’ image

The Chicago Bears and Carolina Panthers share a lot of history together. Earlier this year, George McCaskey admitted that he was pulling for the Panthers in the Super Bowl thanks to a number of Bears connections. Greg Olsen, Charles Tillman and Jared Allen all had spent time in Chicago prior to Carolina. Of course the biggest connection is head coach Ron Rivera, who was a part of...

Bears Questions: Do They Have a 4th Cornerback?

My series of Bears off-season questions continues with an important one… Do the Bears have a legitimate 4th cornerback? NFL teams passed more often last season than any season in the history of the league and that number keeps going up every year.

Jay Cutler: Fantasy Football ceiling for 2016

Jay Cutler had a relatively rough time in 2015. With most of his wide receivers on the sidelines, Cutler had to make do with Matt Forte and his tight ends. Together, Forte, Martellus Bennett and Zach Miller accounted for 11 of Chicago’s 21 receiving touchdowns. This year things are going to be radically different, for a number of reasons. Let’s take a look at what has changed...

Chicago Bears Defense Will Live up to Hype in 2016

Are you a Chicago Bears fan? Are you scared? I know a small part of me is.

Jordan Howard could start for Bears

There is so much to like about the Chicago Bears’ 2016 class that some players might get lost in the shuffle. One guy who fans don’t want to sleep on is former Indiana running back Jordan Howard, who the Bears picked in the fifth round. To this point my assumption has been that Jeremy Langford will get the lion’s share of Matt Forte’s old snaps. Ka’Deem Carey and Jacquizz...

Chicago Bears: Top three concerns for the 2016 season

The Chicago Bears have done a lot this offseason to improve their roster. Not too much pressure is on this team because no one thinks they will be that good. With that being said, they have a lot of work to do this season to prove everyone wrong. Besides injuries, which are unpredictable, I see three major concerns with this team. There are many concerns leading into the season,...

Jay Cutler’s second chance with the Chicago Bears

When Jay Cutler was traded to the Chicago Bears from the Denver Broncos before the 2009 season he came into a situation where the team was fairly ready to compete for a championship. The team finished 7-9 in 2009 where the team lost mostly because Cutler led the league in interceptions with 26. But in 2010 the Bears advanced all the way to the NFC title game before losing. After...

Chicago Bears can finish strong this offseason

The Chicago Bears have had a tremendous offseason thus far. After upgrading their defense by signings linebackers Danny Trevathan and Jerrell Freeman, this was a great start to the offseason. And after Chicago had a rather successful draft, it may seem like the Bears should be content with the work they’ve done thus far. But the Bears should not stop now. They can still improve...

The Chicago Bears Set an Alarm on a Rookie's Phone to Remind Him to Eat Every Two Hours

When the Chicago Bears drafted Leonard Floyd with the ninth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, they envisioned him as a disruptive edge rusher who could terrorize opposing quarterbacks. To help make that vision a reality, the Bears have put Floyd on a dietary program designed to help him consume more calories. At the University of Georgia, the 6-f00t-6 Floyd had no problem making...

Bears set up alarm on rookie’s phone to remind him to eat

This is next-level stuff right here. It’s also something every single one of us would love to have. Chicago Bears rookie first-round pick Leonard Floyd needs to gain weight in order to hold up in the NFL. At 244 pounds, he’s a bit light to play outside linebacker at the highest level football has to offer. So the Bears came up with an idea. A pretty genius idea. They set up...
