Chicago Bears Football – Nothing’s too far out of reach, and Chicago Bears guard, Kyle Long, made that evident when his rookie year took him all the way to the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl.  Coming from a successful, athletic, and not to mention good looking family, Kyle Long made an impression not only on the Chicago Bears, but also the NFL.  Kyle Long in his rookie season with the Chicago Bears got off to an explosive start, making history from the first snap of the ball.  Kyle Long is just 1 of 2 rookie players to start for the Chicago Bears offensive line on opening day since 1983.   Rookie Kyle Long Brought Swagger to the Line Bringing his special swagger to the field helped structure and push this revamped Chicago Bears offense into something worth watching.  Competitive is a lackluster adjective when talking about Kyle Long. Watching him play his brother, Chris Long of the St. Louis Rams, this past season was a joy.  Seeing the two go head to head is reminiscent of the first battle between Peyton and Eli Manning, or Tiki and Ronde Barber, priceless, and hopefully the start of many more to come.  He brought something to the Chicago Bears this season, something that gave the Chicago Bears offense a little bit of a push and a lot more shove. His character, to some people, may be considered nasty or angry, but in a world full of athletes’ all vying for the same goal, his competitiveness and haste provided the missing ingredient, that  which helped the Chicago Bears to allow only 30 sacks this season, the fewest amount allowed by the Chicago Bears since 2008. Kyle Long Makes 2014 Pro Bowl Kyle Long was drafted by Deion Sanders for this year’s NFL Pro Bowl. The 6-6, 313 pound behemoth replaced San Francisco 49ers guard Mike Iupati.  As if starting 16 out of 16 games, for the Chicago Bears wasn’t enough for this rookie, he got to play one more, a fantasy played out, live in Hawaii.   “”I never would have expected I would have gone to the Pro Bowl,” Long said, “I never would have expected that I would have been playing for the Bears… So this is all kind of a fantasy that I’m really living right now.”” Kyle Long said to ChicagoBears.com. Kyle Long Tweets about Pro Bowl The 2014 NFL Pro Bowl took place January 26th in Honolulu, Hawaii featuring players of 30 different professional teams.  This is a game that seems fun, energetic, yet still somewhat competitive for these all-star players and Kyle Long got to be a part of all of it. The Chicago Bears guard was putting up tweets throughout his time not only in Hawaii, but also at the Pro Bowl itself.  He took to his official Twitter account to make a comment and also reply to some fans.   Kyle Long also tweeted that his favorite part of the Pro Bowl was “seeing what some of his favorite players are like in person…” Although Sanders team came up short in a close contest 22-21, Kyle Long got to be apart of a great experience and something this rookie stud, I’m sure, won’t soon forget.
