Bears fifth-round offensive lineman Jordan Mills isn’t phased by this next step in his career. Yet whether or not he can turn that confidence into production on the field remains to be seen?
BEST OF MAXIM
According to Brad Briggs of the Chicago Tribune, due to NFL rules that prohibit Chicago Bears’ 1st round draft pick Kyle Long from organized team activities that start Monday and the mandatory veteran minicamp in June.
Long’s class schedule at Oregon, where he played in the fall, and NFL rules indicate that draft picks cannot participate only in the rookie minicamp until his...
First-round draft choice Kyle Long demonstrated the athletic skills that prompted the Chicago Bears to spend the 20th pick on him during his first official Bears practice. Long and 59 other players, a collection of Bears rookies, first-year players, undrafted college free agents, and approximately 33 “tryout” players went through the paces under the watchful eye of first-year Bears coach [...]

Part 1: Coaching Staff
While free agency technically isn’t over, the Bears have already made all of their major moves. Those moves were nearly perfect in my book.
Bears rookie wide receiver Marquess Wilson had a well-documented break up with his college team last season. Yet he says he’s put the past behind him and will soon show he belongs on the roster.
First Round: Kyle Long, OT/G, Oregon
Another pick I'm shocked at. I think Long is better than Pugh, but still don't think he should be a first round selection. I'm shocked the Bears passed on Eiffert and Ogletree, who are much better players and better values. Long will most likely be put at guard for Chicago, with Bushrod and Webb on the ends. However, he will...

Staying ahead of the curve in football is directly related to a team's ability to innovate. The Colts and the Patriots brought a full-blown "air it out" mindset to football throughout the last decade, and now more and more teams are adopting an offensive strategy that leaves running backs wondering when it's their turn to carry the ball.
The problem with such...
When a new head coach takes over a tradition-rich program with a tradition-rich rival, things can get interesting. For example, former Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith. In Smith’s first press conference, he told the media his number one goal was to beat the Green Bay Packers. It was the first shot fired in the next chapter of the NFL’s longest-running rivalry.
