Chicago Bears: Prep work intensifies as draft nears

Transitioning from a 4-3 defense to a 3-4 is no easy task, but defensive coordinator Vic Fangio will make an enormous impact from the get-go. That being said, the prep work for head coach John Fox and newly-minted GM Ryan Pace is only intensifying with exactly a month until Draft day, and frankly the work is only made harder with not a lot of talent on the defensive side to get...

ESPN NFL analyst Jon Gruden is known for being a quarterback guru and when he says that the Chicago Bears should start thinking about replacing Jay Cutler, the red flags are up. “I think John Fox is going to look at the body of work. They’re going to see that he didn’t get it done really with Lovie Smith or Marc Trestman, and now I’m the next head coach. I think you need...

The Chicago Bears have to grab this d-lineman in free agency

In a league where the rules are heavily tilted in the favor of the offense, there aren’t a lot of ways for the defense to fight back. All too often, their role in a game is to slow down the bleeding, not stop it. Dominating on that side of the ball has become more and more rare. But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. In fact, we’ve seen a few examples in recent years where...

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne was ultimately unsuccessful in trying to bounce back from a torn ACL last season. Considering he is 36, that did not come as a surprise.
