Unless one is an avid football fan, most people would not know the importance of protecting the blind side of a quarterback. As a matter of fact, the story of RT Michael Oher of the Baltimore Ravens in the semi-biographical movie “The Blind Side”, gave some indication of what the position entails. A player is either good at it or absolutely awful. It is imperative that the offensive tackle and guard plant his feet, heels firm to the ground, body forward, hips back in order to hold the rushing defense from smashing the quarterback to smithereens. This has been an ongoing problem for the Bears. It was supposed to be a no-brainer when ex-Chicago Bear Gabe Carimi was drafted a first-round pick in 2011 to fill the gap at left tackle.Due to injuries sustained in his rookie year he became ineffective in that position, forcing RT J’Marcus Webb to switch to the LT position, and the ramifications for that move put QB Jay Cutler in several injury situations.

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
Bears kick returner Devin Hester might be the greatest return man in NFL history, but does he deserve a spot in the Pro Football Hall of Fame? He believes so.
Chicago Bears rookie linebacker Jon Bostic made a memorable hit on Chargers wide receiver Mike Willie last Thursday. The crushing hit jarred the ball loose for an imcompletion and quickly became a preseason highlight for the young rookie.
If the NFL is not careful it is going to take the fun out of the NFL. What did the league do this time you ask? It fined Chicago Bears rookie linebacker Jonathan Bostic $21,000 for this hit on Chargers wide receiver Mike Willie during a recent preseason contest.
This is just crazy. He didn't lead with the helmet at all, in fact he hits him with his...
The hit Chicago Bears rookie linebacker Jon Bostic put on a San Diego wide receiver fired up an entire sideline last Thursday night at Soldier Field.
The most lasting effect will be felt by Bostic though. Teammate Lance Briggs announced via his Twitter account Wednesday morning that the NFL fined Bostic $21000 for the hit on Chargers wide receiver Mike Willie. A source confirmed...
Give Chicago Bears new head coach Marc Trestman credit for understanding Bears history. He reached out to former Bears Super-Bowl winning coach Mike Ditka after accepting the job in January, and Tuesday Da Coach made a rare visit to see the renovated Halas Hall and speak with the current team. Coach Ditka … when I got the job … I [...]
If you’re like me, you spend most of your time googling football players and photoshopping their heads onto animals for your own amusement.Well, maybe not everyone is me. But I would gather that most football fans, at some point or another, have Google image searched Jay Cutler. And I would gather that most of those football fans got momentarily perplexed by who showed up in front...
Russell Wilson was a guest on Fox Sports 1′s Fox Football Daily on Wednesday. Skip ahead to the 1:23 mark when analyst, and former Chicago Bears linebacker, Brian Urlacher tells Russell Wilson, “Hey Russell I’m not sure if you know this or not, but you ended my career basically.” Obviously this was said in jest, but it was still impressive to see a legendary player like...
Devin Hester may not be much of a receiver, but he thinks highly of himself as a return man, and knows his place in history.
Hester has returned 12 punts, five kickoffs and a missed field goal for touchdowns over the course of his career, and thinks that he’s close to being a Hall of Famer, right now.
“I have one foot in right now,” Hester said, via Mike Mulligan of the Chicago...
The No Fun League strikes again. Chicago Bears LB Jon Bostic was fined $21,000 for his hit on Mike Willie. As you can see in the picture above, he hit him with his shoulder. This is pretty crazy considering that 21k is almost an entire game check for the rookie.
NFL.com actually describes the hit as “hard-hitting” and “spectacular” but now it’s worth $21k. Was this a...

For the third straight year, Bears linebacker Patrick Trahan is fighting for a spot on Chicago’s final 53-man roster, only this time he has experience on his side.
Former Chicago Bears linebackers and current Fox Sports 1 football analyst Brian Urlacher comes off as is he wasn’t quite ready to call it a career from football. The former leader of great Bears defenses even admitted that he would be mad if the Bears won the Super Bowl without him, so these comments directed towards Russell Wilson just seem like another case of bitterness.
