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 and a sack during the full 11-on-11 session.
Rod Marinelli spoke highly of McClellin and made it known what exactly the rookie needs to focus on to improve. Instead of thinking so much about what's coming, he just needs to go.
He did that today and finally broke through on what has been a very rough first few days. McClellin showed off the reasons why he could potentially make an impact.
Elsewhere on defense with Brian Urlacher out Nick Roach has taken over at the starting MIKE spot. Roach played that spot in 2009 when Urlacher was out with his wrist injury.
Second year linebacker Dom DeCicco is ...

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...
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...
With the 2011/2012 season ending in such a disappointment, the Bears are looking to make the 2012/2013 season their season. Injuries butchered them last season, so the Bears went out and shopped around to prevent the same thing to happen again this year. Will the moves they made take them to the Super Bowl? I don’t think so, but I do have them taking the NFC North. Yes...
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.

The 2011 season saw Forte do just about everything for the Bears offense. He was among the league leaders in rushing yards and average yards per carry before a knee injury sidelined him...
Bears first rounder Shea McClellin has participated in exactly four padded practices to this point, so the fever pitch surrounding his recent struggles is wildly premature.
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 [...]

Jenny McCarthy is currently in a relationship with Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher, but she says her 10-year-old Evan is not impressed with the 34 year old famous footballer’s status. “My son doesn’t watch football,” Jenny told OK Magazine. “He judges people on their spirit, which is perfect. The relationship is still new, but my...
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...
