PLAYERS: Jonathan Bostic
TEAMS: Chicago Bears
Chicago Bears rookie linebacker Jon Bostic has made his fair share of errors through the first two preseason games, but the club’s second round selection (No. 50 overall) has also jumped on the screen on multiple occasions. He made his presence felt again when he laid a momentous hit on San Diego Chargers wide receiver Mike Willie to force an incompletion in the third quarter of Thursday night’s contest. “Obviously, it was a big hit,” Bostic said, via ESPN Chicago. “We were trying to take the ball away, that’s the main thing.

Chicago Bears Rookie Linebacker Jonathan Bostic Lays Some Serious Wood

It is going to be weird this season watching the Chicago Bears play without Brian Urlacher in the game, but if you can make any sort of judgement based off of preseason play they might have his replacement in rookie Jonathan Bostic.

During Thursday’s preseason game between the Bears and Chargers, Jay Cutler acted as Jay Cutler was, but this time it wasn’t directed at one of his own offensive lineman. Instead it was directed at a ball boy who was a little behind on his duties, or so thought Cutty. Seems like Jay needs to also watch his language on...

Chicago Bears get the win, but…

It was difficult to determine if the Bears were simply that good, or if the San Diego Chargers were really that bad.  As the game wore on, it became clear it was a little bit of both. QB Jay Cutler was sacked twice during the first offensive series.  TE Martellus Bennet was taken back of the woodshed by DE Jarrett Johnson and after that, Cutler was up to his old tricks, diddly...
