Yesterday I touched on DJ Hayden’s performance against the Chicago Bears in my game recap . NFL.com used the right words to describe his performance. “Uneven.” Friday’s results were mixed. Hayden whiffed while trying to tackle Alshon Jeffery on third-and-1, allowing the Bears wide receiver to plow for 22 yards on Chicago’s opening drive. Hayden made up for it three plays...
Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman brought in legendary Hall of Famer Mike Ditka to tour the newly-renovated Halas Hall and watch practice. “The idea was for him to come by and see Halas Hall and the new facility and spend some time with our players and say hello to them
Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson is trying to figure out how the offense can run the power running game without left tackle Jared Veldheer, their best lineman. The plan was to run to Veldheer’s side the majority of the time, but with the lineman out for maybe the entire season, a lot of things have to be thought over.
Raiders head coach didn’t like the way Matt Flynn played during Friday night’s preseason game against the Bears. On the other hand, Terrelle Pryor impressed him with his performance.
“I think obviously we have to look at it,:” said Allen, via Raiders.com. “I think when you look at it I don’t think Matt [Flynn] played well in this game. Obviously, I thought Terrelle...
After Friday night’s preseason game, Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle believes Raiders quarterback Matt Flynn has lost his confidence.
Besides Flynn’s lack of arm strength, he’s also had lack of vision in preseason. & whether its Seattle history or OL, confidence looks shot

Will Matt Flynn be one of the true enigma’s of the NFL this season?He was a backup in Green Bay for four seasons in Green Bay before becoming a free agent and signing with Seattle to be their starter in 2012.Russell Wilson beat him out in camp and again, Flynn carried a clipboard.This offseason, Flynn was traded to Oakland and is now “thriving” in the Raiders' offense,...
Oakland wideout Rod Streater suffered a concussion in Friday night's game against against Chicago.Fantasy Spin:Streater has been the Raiders' most consistent receiver in training camp and could become the go-to receiver ahead of up-and-down Denarius Moore. Streater averaged 70.2 yards per game in the final five contests last season. He has two weeks to recover and still play...

Bear Report goes one-on-one with Chicago rookie wideout Marquess Wilson, who is currently in a competition for one of the final receiver spots on the Bears’ final 53-man roster.
Chicago running back Matt Forte was in mid-season form, rushing six times for 76 yards and catching two balls for 33 yards and a score.Fantasy Spin:Temper your enthusiasm slightly - it was against the Oakland Raiders' defense. And Michael Bush scored twice from inside the 10-yard line. Still, he's healthy and running well.
Chicago Bears cornerback Zack Bowman hasn’t received much publicity so far this year but he’ll play a crucial role this season, both as a member of the secondary and on special teams.
