Bears in competition with NFC North rivals for free agents

As the initial frenzy of free agency subsides, it’s becoming clearer which way teams are leaning for May’s draft. Not surprisingly, a majority of the Bears’ moves have been defensive.  They made their biggest splash at defensive end, releasing Julius Peppers to free up cap space while signing Lamarr Houston and Willie Young. GM Phil Emery has scratched the surface at safety...

Bears fans shouldn’t get comfortable with these safeties

Ryan Mundy and M.D. Jennings were brought in by the Bears over the course of the first two days in free agency. On the surface fans might think these are the two new starters at safety but proceed with caution on that notion. Jennings was a restricted free agent who was non-tenured by the Packers. He started in all 16 games last year but struggled mightily and was often rotated out...

The Packers officially lost their first player to free agency as the Bears signed much maligned...

M.D. Jennings in the worst thing… ever

“I’m not being that belligerent,” I exclaimed as I was removed from the bar. This is MD Jennings’ fault as far as I’m concerned!” It was a Monday night – that’s pretty much all I can tell you. I don’t remember much from that night aside from the taste of defeat and bourbon but I remember having just three thoughts: 1.) Who is this Jennings dude and why won’t he...

Safeties Were No-Picked

Morgan Burnett and M.D. Jennings went the entire regular season without a single interception. You have to go back to the 1950s to find when this dubious feat was last accomplished by a pair of starting safeties in Green Bay. Even more alarming is how few opportunities this undynamic duo had to pick off balls. Burnett and Jennings combined for only 5 passes defensed. To put that...
