Creative Ways The Chicago Bears Can Fix The O-Line

Interestingly enough the one area that is left to address by the Chicago Bears heading into the 2015 NFL draft is the offensive line.  To date their only noteable move in that area was replacing center Roberto Garza with journeyman free agent Will Montgomery.  There are still other holes to plug and some are worried they may not have the draft picks to fix them all. Thankfully...

Chicago Bears sign C Will Montgomery

The Bears got a little younger, a little cheaper, and a little better at center this week. They released Roberto Garza, saving them 1.1 million on the cap, replacing him with Will Montgomery, who will make just 900K in 2015. Montgomery is no spring chicken, going into his age 32 season, part of why he was available for so little, but he’s younger than Garza, who is going into his...

A Chicago Bears Stat Nobody Will Like

According to Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com, the Bears lead the league in old guys.

Why The Bears Were Right Sacrificing Roberto Garza

Anybody who was happy about the fact that Roberto Garza was released by the Chicago Bears needs to get a clue.  The man was a shining example of what the NFL should be about and did everything asked of him by his team and more.  He was a key cog of that 2006 Super Bowl team and emerged as a pivotal leader following the loss of Olin Kreutz. In the end though it was no accident the...

Chicago Bears to Part Ways with Savvy Veteran

The Chicago Bears, under the new direction of Ryan Pace, continue to reshape their roster and not only by adding pieces, but subtracting players that no longer are a viable fit. The latest casualty is long-time offensive lineman Roberto Garza. The guard-turned-center started 144 games for Chicago in route to becoming a team captain. As one would expect, Garza thanked Bears fans for...

Bears To Sign C Will Montgomery

Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports that the Bears plan to sign veteran center Will Montgomery to replace Roberto Garza, who is being released.

Broncos bothered by O-line criticism

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) By midweek, teams have seen the film, made the corrections and installed the new game plan. All of that did nothing to ease John Fox's irritability or Peyton Manning's sense of culpability Wednesday. Both are still smarting from Denver's 22-7 loss at St. Louis in which the Broncos' NFL-record streak of 30 consecutive 20-plus-point games was snapped in stunning...

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) The scuffling and shuffling along Denver's offensive line may not be over. Offensive coordinator Adam Gase said he'll stick with the same five starters from his retooled line when the Broncos (7-2) visit St. Louis (3-6) on Sunday. That lineup isn't written in indelible ink, however. Left to right, that line is: Ryan Clady, Orlando Franklin, Will Montgomery...

Report: Denver Broncos bring in much maligned OL Richie Incognito for workout

It’s no secret the Denver Broncos offensive line hasn’t been good this year.

It appears the changes might not be finished. The Broncos brought in Richie Incognito for a workout...
