Bears' Stephen Paea poised to cash in

By now, you’re probably starting preparation for your Thanksgiving feast. But before you do that, chew on a few links in our spin around the Chicago Bears beat: -- ESPNChicago.com’s Jeff Dickerson delivers his weekly stock report, and he’s high on defensive tackle Stephen Paea. -- CSNChicago.com’s John Mullin takes a look at the impact plays made by linebacker Christian Jones and Al Louis-Jean. -- Here are Brad Biggs’ grades of the Bears after reviewing film of the win over the Buccaneers.

Stock Watch: Take Paea to the bank

RISING 1. Stephen Paea: The defensive tackle wrecked the interior of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' offensive line to record two sacks in the Chicago Bears' 21-13 victory Sunday. The stout fourth-year player is now second on the defense with six sacks. It’s a contract year for Paea, who’s started all 11 games. Paea is a powerful player -- his accomplishments in the weight room are legendary. But he's had problems staying healthy, missing nine games over his first three years due to a variety of ailments.
