Found July 31, 2012 on PPR Fantasy Football:
Chicago Bears No. 1 receiver Brandon Marshall survived an injury scare not long after Devin Hester survived an injury scare of his own. After the two devastating and season crushing injuries that the Bears suffered last season with Jay Cutler and Matt Forte both going down, any sort of scare is going to make Bears fans hold their breath. The 12,000 fans in attendance had one of those moments with Marshall, when the receiver leapt up for a catch but landed awkwardly. “A little scare there early on, but of course there was nothing to it. But you always fear it whenever you see one of your best players going down like that.” Marshall was checked out by the Bears medical staff and returned to practice shortly thereafter. As a good faith measure to fans, Marshall showed everyone that he’s okay, Marshall connected with Jay Cutler on several deep bombs, embarrassing Charles Tillman in the process. Conte Survives Scare Also: The Bears weren’t done with their rash of scares. Safety ...

Chicago Bears training camp notes: Day Five Wrap

Shea McClellin should send a thank you card to Brian Price because Price's workout on Tuesday was bad enough that it knocked the rookie off the front page of Bears camp reports.

Forte & Bush Are A Two Headed Monster

Monsters of the Midway Juan… The Bears rush attack will be in good hands with Forte and Bush in the backfield. But what does that mean for fantasy? I may be the minority in my dislike for Forte this season, but the guy just doesn’t score enough TDs to be a top 10 guy IMO. I mean Marion Freakin’ Barber was flex worthy each week in 2011 and Bush is a major upgrade. Bush...

Rookie Shea McClellin has a ways to go

If there's a sense that Shea McClellin is getting piled on by me writing this blog, then throw another log on the fire. I don't want to sound overly dramatic because there is plenty of that going around as well. There's no reason to panic because we're only four practices into camp and there's a long long ways to go. The best way to evaluate this is to say...

Boundless speculation will come out of today's practice as J'Marcus Webb is practicing ahead of Chris Williams at LT.   With Mike Tice saying earlier that Williams and Webb will split reps at LT and split days and Webb practicing with the first team for the second consecutive day, Tice is not sticking to his words. Further adding to the speculation is Chris Williams...

Illini Coach Tim Beckman Sings "Take Me Out to the Ballgame"; Shouldn't Quit Day Job

Just a couple of weeks ago I brought you a dreadful performance of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" by Bears QB Jay Cutler. Now it is University of Illinois football coach Tim Beckman's turn at the famous song. It wasn't a great performance, but it added more enthusiasm to it than Cutler did. Hopefully, Beckman and the Illini play with this enthusiasm during the...
