Bears-Jaguars preview: McClellin, Bostic need to show progress

August 14th, 2014 - 2:30 pm

The “Release Shea McClellin” bandwagon seems to be gaining passengers at a rapid pace, but don’t expect to see general manager Phil Emery or head coach Marc Trestman aboard anytime soon. I’ll admit, I’ve been as discouraged as most that [...]

Bears-Jaguars preview: Can Clausen close the deal against Palmer?

August 14th, 2014 - 2:00 pm

By virtue of his short tenure with the Bears last year, and the late arrival of Jimmy Clausen to the team, Jordan Palmer got first crack at backup quarterback duties this offseason. But after a subpar performance against the Eagles [...]

Bears-Eagles preview: Can we get some clarity in the muddled safety depth chart?

August 8th, 2014 - 6:00 pm

Remember Mike Brown? Of course you do. A player doesn’t return overtime interceptions for touchdowns in back-to-back weeks in miracle fashion and become forgotten. Brown will live in Bears lore not only for those great moments back in the 2001 [...]

Bears-Eagles preview: Who will win the starting middle linebacker spot: D.J. Williams or Jon Bostic?

August 8th, 2014 - 5:30 pm

When the first depth chart was released by the Bears this preseason, it listed D.J. Williams and Jon Bostic as co-starters at middle linebacker. Williams probably has the edge because of his veteran experience in the game and Bostic is [...]

Bears-Eagles preview: Is Shea McClellin a capable linebacker?

August 8th, 2014 - 5:00 pm

As an eternal optimist, I’ve been willing to give the benefit of the doubt to Shea McClellin since the Bears drafted him with the 19th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. Rather than dwell on some of his question [...]

Bears-Eagles preview: Can the defensive line improve their woeful run defense?

August 8th, 2014 - 4:30 pm

To see a Bears defense rank last against the run is as bad as seeing the Green Bay Packers hoist the Lombardi Trophy after winning the Super Bowl. It’s like a punch in the gut. The Bears have long been [...]

Bears-Eagles preview: Does the defensive line have enough depth and talent to rush the passer?

August 8th, 2014 - 4:00 pm

Give Bears general manager Phil Emery credit. While he may not always make the right move — but, really, no GM ever does — he at least recognizes problems and moves quickly to improve them. When the Bears were offensively [...]

Bears-Eagles preview: Which wide receiver(s) will step up in Marquess Wilson’s absence?

August 8th, 2014 - 3:30 pm

The Bears received a crushing blow earlier this week when third wideout Marquess Wilson went down with a broken clavicle while laying out to make a catch. The “blow” might have been more emotional than statistical, for we don’t know [...]

Bears-Eagles preview: What’s behind Martellus Benentt on the tight end depth chart?

August 8th, 2014 - 3:00 pm

Based on Martellus Bennett’s reaction to being spun to the ground by Kyle Fuller, you would have thought the rookie cornerback broke off the Black Unicorn’s horn. Bennett, who also dubs himself the Orange Dinosaur, is in danger of going [...]

Bears-Eagles preview: Can the offensive line resume stability from last year?

August 8th, 2014 - 2:30 pm

Last season, the Bears added four new pieces to their offensive line in veteran free agents Jermon Bushrod and Matt Slauson as well as rookies Kyle Long and Jordan Mills. Veteran Roberto Garza remained anchored in the middle at center. [...]
