Found July 19, 2012 on 60 Max Power O:
PLAYERS: Shea McClellin
TEAMS: Chicago Bears

"...where resentment rides high, but emotions won't grow."

 

NFL Offseason Grades - Chris Burke: (post-Forte contract) "...the core of this offense should be around for a few years. On the flip side, the OL is still a potential sieve that basically went ignored."

[Video] A look ahead at Bears training camp - Bowen talks a lot of sense. Kaplan doesn't talk much. It's a good combination.

Schrager's camp countdown - "If I’m Cutler, I’m not exactly doing flips over what’s been done to protect me this offseason." Obviously not a member of J-Webb Nation.

Bears training camp capsules: Secondary - Moon Mullin takes a look at the DBs, reviewing the 2011 season and discussing what to watch for in training camp.

ChicagoBears.com: Spencer confident in Bears backfield - In the eighth of nine position previews in advance of training camp, coach Tim Spencer discusses RBs Matt Forte, Michael Bush and Kahlil Bell.

Will Bears receivers live up to the hype? - Michael C. Wright: "The addition of Marshall and Jeffery doesn’t suddenly make Chicago’s receivers a formidable group. Nobody wants to hear it, but it’s true. The group’s worth still has to be proven on the field. "

CBSChicago's Most Important Bears: No. 6 Matt Forte - "If Forte is leading the Bears in catches this season, then they have a big problem with newly acquired WR Brandon Marshall."

Durkin: Evaluating The Bears Defense Position-By-Position - Dan Durkin doesn't like the dropoff in talent after the starters... or, in Major Wright's case, the starter.

Bears need Shea McClellin to become the third DE force Mark Anderson once was - Brad Biggs: Peppers remains dominant and Idonije is steady but for the Bears defense really to be good, the rookie has to come through quickly.

[Video] Fitzgerald's Top Five Receivers To Watch - Larry Fitzgerald includes Brandon Marshall: "The fun really starts once he catches the ball... guys don't want to tackle him."

Despite recent criticism of NFL RBs, Forte and Rice still draw big contracts - "Teams pay lip service to the notion that RBs are an endangered species, arguably a high-risk/short-shelf life position that should not merit a prohibitive investment, but rarely adhere to the cautionary approach they so often publicly espouse."

Detailed breakdown of Forte contract - Roster bonuses, workout bonuses per season, etc.

The best of the Bears: Outside linebackers - Moon Mullin rates the top three Bears OLBs of all time and the first two choices are awfully close.

Bears Best: Middle linebackers - Not really a spoiler to say #1 is Dick Butkus, is it?

Playbook: How did Vernon Davis beat the Saints? - Bowen uses video to break down the 49ers' TE in the red zone vs Cover 2.

Larry Fitzgerald: Pick Megatron over me in fantasy football - One of the best players at his position in the league is realistic and honest. Meanwhile, not exactly one of the best players at his position in the league J'Marcus Webb tweets about how he's going to "dominate"...

Know thy enemy - Graham Harrell believes he’ll be ready if Aaron Rodgers goes down. Some Bears fans were calling for Caleb Hanie to displace Cutler as starting QB. Just sayin'.

Know thy enemy - PFT Preseason Power Rankings No. 13: Detroit Lions. Outraged Lions fans to commence whining at length about how they should be awarded the Lombardi trophy now in 3, 2, 1...

Could former Bear Benson rejoin the NFCN? - Packers reportedly among teams to call. Potential for arrest alone should intrigue Lions, Vikings.

Profile: former Bears DT Jim Flanigan Jr - Written from the viewpoint of the enemy, but those of you who remember his time in Chicago might enjoy reading about the 7-year Bear.

Buffalo Bills fan builds Ralph Wilson Stadium of Legos - Because Lego is always awesome and I'd like someone to build a replica of Soldier Field.

Lead singer Ian Curtis committed suicide nine months after writing this song during the breakup of his marriage. I've often thought of it as the sound of human misery in musical form.

Young MC offers Jay Cutler second crack at ‘Take Me Out to the Ballgame’

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler needn’t worry about his historically awful rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” last Saturday in front of terrified and likely traumatized onlookers at Wrigley Field. Why? Because Young MC has got his back. Wait. What? In case you missed it, Cutler’s performance of the traditional song sung during [...]

Chicago Bears rookie on the hot seat: Brandon Hardin

Continuing to examine the 2012 Chicago Bears draft picks and where they fit into plans we come to rookie safety Brandon Hardin. Hardin was the eighth safety drafted since Lovie Smith became the head coach.  He is proverbial big, fast and strong even more so than most safeties. The problem with Hardin is he played corner his entire career at Oregon State.  Hardin has never played...

Chicago Bears veteran on the hot seat: Devin Hester

Devin Hester is the best return man in the history of the NFL. You would think that is all you'd have to write about Hester given the excitement that builds with every thump of a punt towards him.  The drama is palpable up until the whistle blows or Hester crosses the goal line. That's part of the fun of having Hester on the team, he's a threat to score a touchdown...

Brian Urlacher says Bears have the talent for Super Bowl

Coming off a MCL and PCL injury in his left knee, but when the bears have their first day in training camp on July 28, he’ll be ready. From the Waddle and Silvy Show and fannation.com, Urlacher said: “I’m full go for everything, so I won’t be missing anything. Athletically and mentally, we’re one of the best defenses in the NFL,” Urlacher said. “You look at position...

Training Camp Preview: Running Back Position

The Bears have always had a good core of running backs. Last season, Matt Forte put up impressive numbers until his Week 13 season-ending injury. He rushed 203 times for 997 yards and three touchdowns, while averaging 4.9 ypc. He also reeled in 52 receptions for 490 yards and one touchdown in 12 games. He was resigned to a four-year deal on Monday and now the Bears training camp...

Jay Cutler Can't Sing and Other Obvious News

Chicago sports fans are still kind of upset at Jay Cutler for leaving the NFC Championship Game with what appeared to be a minor, if any, injury. So what better to improve his image with people within Chicagoland than to sing during the seventh inning stretch. It didn't go well. Cutler isn't a singer, but it seemed like it put as much effort into the song as he did the...

The Bears Den: July 20, 2012

"...where far more frequently you're wearing perfume - with, you say, no special place to go."   Bears training camp capsules: OL - Moon Mullin looks at the OL, the most heavily scrutinized position last season. PFT Preseason Power Rankings No.11: Chicago Bears - "If the Bears are as good a team in 2012 as they were in 2011 - only this time they don...

For The Chicago Bears, Now Is The Time

With the Bears and Matt Forte ending their soap opera by striking a long-term agreement, the Monsters of the Midway now have virtually no distractions heading into training camp next week. That allows the Bears to focus solely on the task at hand: winning a Super Bowl title. And they better do it quickly, because after this year the window may be closing. Jay Cutler, Matt Forte...

Chicago Bears 2012 NFL Season Preview

Offense The Bears were off to a 7-3 start last year, one year after going 11-5 and making it to the NFC Championship game. In my opinion, the Bears’ 7-3 start last year was more impressive. Their 11-5 2010 record was not fully indicative of how they played. They had a Pythagorean Expectation of just 9.4 wins and that was in spite of the fact that their 11 wins were against a 6...

Chicago Bears: Don't Underestimate QB Jason Campbell

For the most part, Jason Campbell has had a rough NFL career. He was drafted in the first round by the Washington Redskins in 2005, he was considered one of the top five quarterbacks in the draft that year. At first it seemed that he was primed for greatness. Coming out of college, he was considered one of the most efficient quarterbacks in the history of Auburn University. He put...
