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.
Brian Price struggled mightily in his first full practice in pads with the Bears, raising early alarms about the young players skills. The naysayers should relax a little, it was one practice and Price has a proven track record in the NFL.
Price is still working to get into shape, and still working out an injury of sorts he suffered in Tampa that led to the Bucs cutting ties with him in the first place. Whether or not he's 100-percent remains to be seen, though if he's not completely healthy the Bears will likely keep that under wraps.
Price struggled on the goal line, struggled in one on ones and in full team drills. He'll need to step up his game considerably and I expect him to.
Some perspective is in order when it comes to the player that Price is. One thing he is not is a pass ...

It's been a rough start for new defensive tackle Brian Price. After getting traded to the Bears last week from Tampa, Price has yet to really wow anyone at camp. Price suffered through notable growing pains during his first practice with the team but he made no excuses for it when asked about it after.

Perhaps no player has been more maligned than rookie defensive end Shea McClellin. After all when you're the first draft pick of draft guru and newly minted GM Phil Emery, and you're lining up on the other side of Julius Peppers big things are expected.
McClellin has struggled but experience a bounce back day today notching numerous pressures, two tackles for a loss...
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...
After the first few days of practice, the Chicago Bears receiving corps has looked dominant. This is what the team's coaches and management was hoping for when they went out and brought in multiple weapons in the offseason.
Brandon Marshall dominated every defensive back that lined up against him during drills on Sunday. However, corner Kelvin Hayden had him on lockdown,...
Newly appointed Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice has been in constant contact with quarterback Jay Cutler throughout training camp thus far.
Tice, who was the team's offensive line coach for the past two seasons, has said he wants Cutler to indicate his 'likes' and 'dislikes' about the plays they run. He wants his quarterback to be comfortable...

Last season, Cutler had to deal with a below-average offensive line and an offensive coordinator who called pass plays that had him running for his life, but still had a pretty impressive year. Cutler...
Let’s just go ahead and fast forward to the good part of the New York Jets adding Tim Tebow to their roster this offseason. Whether we want to admit it or not, it’s a known fact that Tebow and the Jets are not in a ‘til death do us part kind of commitment so inevitably the [...]
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...
With a quarterback that has been sacked 110 times in the last three seasons in Chicago, you wouldn’t point to the Bears offensive line as being its strongest suit. Despite not making any major additions to the offensive line during the offseason, the team feels good about the direction the offensive line is headed.
Here are some reasons why the offensive line is not as bad as you...
To say that the Tampa Buccaneers have invested heavily in the defensive line in the past few seasons is an understatement. The Bucs spent two first- and second-round selections on defensive tackles (Gerald McCoy and Brian Price) and ends (Adrian Clayborn and Da'Quan Bowers) in 2010 and 2011.
But Tampa Bay's plan to build a dominant defensive line for the next six to eight...
