Sorry, some of us have BOOBS to...

Brian Robison wants to start but expects competition from Corey Wootton

By the Numbers: How much did the Bears defense improve?

Chicago Bears sign DE LaMarr Houston

Bears need to go after Michael Bennett

Free agency and the draft are where GM’s earn their salaries.  If the Bears can put together a team this offseason that makes a playoff appearance in 2014, Phil Emery will have earned his.  With all the holes to fill on defense, Emery will have to get creative to re-sign the right guys and bring in new ones who can get the job done right away.  The job he did with the offensive...

The Future of Chicago Bears Defense: Corey Wootton

Chicago Bears Football – It was not a good year for the Chicago Bears defense. In fact, it was a terrible year. Running backs did cartwheels across our defensive line, while wide receivers blew past the safeties and quarterbacks danced away from some sacks. Still, it was not all so bad. There are some players who are certain that they will return. These include key cogs like Tim...
