The Bears wrapped up their second day in pads and fourth practice overall in Bourbannais on Sunday afternoon in front of another enthusiastic crowd.
Julius Peppers participated in individual drills but received a veteran's day off during seven on seven and 11 on 11 action.
On the day the offense did not execute very well in the passing game but there seemed to be a strong emphasis on the running game.

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...
Perhaps no player is better prepared to deal with the thought of losing his job than Bears defensive end Israel Idonije. No player better exemplifies the cliche of lunch pail player than this Bears player.
Idonije has been nothing short of a strong stable reliable player his entire career in Chicago. He plays well and gets the most out of his ability. He's not special...

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...
