1 Nov 1998: Head coach Mike Ditka of the New Orleans Saints looks on during the game against the Carolina Panthers at the Eriksson Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Panthers defeated the Saints 31-17. Mandatory Credit: Vincent Laforet /Allsport

Bears beat Packers! - Ditka led the Bears into the Rivalry Cup golf tournament against the Packers, so there was only ever going to be one result: Ditka.

Stop the Hester Experiment - "If Hester (as a full-time WR) can't put up better numbers than a part-time WR (Deion Sanders) who played the position for just one year, what's the point?"

[Audio] Mike Ditka on ESPN's Waddle & Silvy - Ditka speaks. You listen.

Football Outsiders: 2011 Play-Action, Defense - Bears one of the better teams at defending the play-action in 2011.

[Video] ChicagoBears.com: Behind-the-scenes series kicks off - ChicagoBears.com on Monday launched a five-part video series that takes a comprehensive behind-the-scenes look at last month’s Bears rookie minicamp. McClellin: “There are like seven million people or something. I’m not used to that. I’ve got like 200,000 in Boise.”

Super Bowl prospects of six active NFL greats still hunting for ring - "At 34 and entering the final year of his contract, this could be Urlacher's last shot with the Bears." O RLY?

Matt Schaub has best Super Bowl shot among QBs without title - Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com thinks Andy Dalton is more likely to have a shot at the big one than Jay Cutler. The SuperFans might have a thought or two for him.

[Video] Forte Contract Situation Looming - (This is one of those videos that ESPN randomly decides not to let me watch in the UK, so I'm going to make something up) Jeff Dickerson reports that Bears have offered Forte a reserved parking spot with "For elite NFL running backs only" plaque in effort to break deadlock.

Stagnant salary cap could cause 'carnage' next season - Steve Wyche on teams' need to balance paying for top talent with maintaining a competitive roster. [Video] Ditka approves of Bears' approach.

Inside the playbook: RB alignments - Bowen draws up the multiple alignments at the RB position. My years of playing 4th & Inches (C64), TV Sports: Football, Tom Landry Strategy Football, Headcoach (all Amiga), and various incarnations of Madden (Amiga, PS2) weren't wasted.

Playbook: Spurrier's vertical concept vs. Cover 4 - Bowen does his thing. Watch and learn, Major Wright, watch and learn.

Know thy enemy - Offseason Breakdown: Concerns linger in the secondary for Packers. Is Starks ready to take over from Grant? Not much depth in backfield.

Know thy enemy - Minnesota has made changes on its offensive line, but will they work?

Know thy enemy - Did the Lions’ secondary have just two bad games? The numbers say otherwise... Need to maintain poor performance in the clutch.

Time to wave your lighters.
