The Bears Den: April 18, 2014 - Chicago Bears offseason news & notes

At least Alshon Jeffery was a home run, Ditka be praised. Bushrod weighs in on new teammates - Larry Mayer: Having played with or against some of the free agents the Bears have signed this offseason, Jermon Bushrod shares his thoughts about Jared Allen and others. Draft analysis - Moon Mullin: Because there are fewer elite safeties than DT, NFL Network draft analysts' early thought is that safety should be the Bears’ first choice, partly for reasons of numbers.

Mocking the Mocks: Whom does Mel Kiper mock to the Chicago Bears?

It's 2014 Mock Draft time! This is the time of year when everyone speculates on which player will go where. We'll do our best to pick out a few reputable mock draft sites, feature their Chicago Bears selection, then ask you to tell us how they did. Today we'll check out whom ESPN's Mel Kiper mocked to the Bears in his latest mock draft. When we last visited the mock draft of ESPN's drafting guru Mel Kiper, he was doing his Grade: A mock where he picks players based on how he would draft if he were running each team.  He gave the Bears Darqueze Dennard the Michigan St. cornerback in the...

Charles Tillman has a street named after him in his hometown

Charles Tillman has a street named after him in his hometown

The next time you travel through Copperas Cove, Texas, be sure to make your way down Charles Tillman Way. Charles Tillman is one of the most popular players to ever don the Navy and Orange of the Chicago Bears. His on field accomplishments are just a small part of why fans connect with Tillman so much. When thinking of Tillman, the 36 career interceptions, 42 forced fumbles and nine defensive touchdowns take a back seat to his off field endeavors. His charitable work through his Cornerstone Foundation is just a small part of what he does to give back. When nominated for the Walter Payton...

The Bears Den: April 17, 2014 - Chicago Bears offseason news & notes

Most productive pick of Jerry Angelo's final draft? Chris Conte. Why Chicago will always be a hardnosed Bears town - Will Leitch: The Cubs have the national romantic storyline, the Bulls have the Jordan years, the Blackhawks have those two shiny new Stanley Cup titles, the White Sox even have the White House. But in Chicago itself, the Bears are the way the citizens see themselves. Bears among teams with tons at stake - Gil Brandt: Poised to seriously challenge for the NFC North crown, finding the right prospects to draft -- specifically, a D-lineman and a safety -- could put the Bears...

Who could Phil Emery pick in the 1st round that would make you really angry?

Who could Phil Emery pick in the 1st round that would make you really angry?

The Chicago Bears are set to select at 14th overall in the upcoming NFL Draft, and general manager Phil Emery has made two consecutive head-scratching first round picks. With the talent available this year Emery has to take a guy "worthy" of 14, doesn't he? Phil Emery has a reputation after just two years on the job of trying to be the "smartest guy in the room" guy. Whether you believe that or not -- and for the record I don't -- his first two 1st round draft picks did come out of nowhere, and were both widely panned at the time. 50/50 is not the ratio you'd like in round one. This draft...

2014 NFL Mock Draft: With The Fourteenth Overall Pick Of The 2014 BRB Mock Draft, The Chicago Bears Select...

The 2014 Battle Red Blog Mock Draft continues with the Monsters of the Midway making their first round selection. Who will it be and why? JayTrain52, on behalf of the Chicago Bears, has spoken. Read his words, won't you? I would have loved for Jake Matthews to fall one more spot; that would have been a steal and solved the RT issue while providing the future LT for the Bears. Since Matthews was taken by St. Louis, with the fourteenth pick of the 2014 Battle Red Blog Mock Draft, the Bears select Timmy Jernigan (DT--Florida St.). A lot of people have Aaron Donald (drafted a couple picks...

With the 14th pick in the Acme Packing Company Mock Draft, the Chicago Bears bolster their aging defense with As we continue the Acme Packing Company Mock Draft, we land on the 14th overall pick, owned by the Chicago Bears. Background The Bears finished 8-8 in 2013, and lost the NFC North division and berth into the playoffs when the Packers pulled off the 33-28 victory in Week 17 of the regular season.

When should the Bears draft a defensive tackle and a safety?

When should the Bears draft a defensive tackle and a safety?

The Chicago Bears have three picks in the top 100 of the 2014 NFL Draft and an obvious need at safety and defensive tackle. If they pass on a DT in the 1st round, is there a good chance they can find a gem later? Some scouts aren't so sure. If you were to take a poll around NFL circles, the top two needs for the Chicago Bears would probably be defensive tackle and safety, with cornerback sneaking in a handful of mentions. You ask Bears fans the same question and odds are you'll get the same top two needs, safety and defensive tackle.. The majority of mock drafts floating around also shows...

2014 NFL mock draft: Bears select Aaron Donald

The Chicago Bears take Aaron Donald with the 14th pick of the 2014 POD Community Mock Draft. With the 14th pick in Pride Of Detroit's 2014 NFL mock draft, the Chicago Bears select Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald. DLions4Eva is serving as the Bears' general manager, and his reasoning for the pick is below. I decided to pick the top defensive tackle in the draft in Pittsburgh's Aaron Donald for the Bears despite having the top corner, the second best safety and the top middle linebacker left on the board. Defensive tackle, to me, appeared to be the biggest priority other than ...

Ten Thoughts on the NFL: Chicago Bears and beyond

Ten Thoughts on the NFL: Chicago Bears and beyond

You know what time it is... Check out my NFL Thoughts this week, let me know what you think, and then add a few of your own. 1) I'm waiting for the Aldon Smith excuse to be, "I didn't say I have a bomb, I said you were the Bomb." 2) If I was a quarterback needy team drafting in the top 10, I think I'd pass on the position until the 2nd round this year. There are just too many question marks surrounding the top QBs, and when you couple that with the talent available from the top prospects at other positions, you have a sound reason to wait for a signal caller. It's a scenario that reminds me...

Which 2013 Bears draft pick will make the biggest improvement in 2014?

Which 2013 Bears draft pick will make the biggest improvement in 2014?

The 2014 NFL Draft is a little less than a month away and the attention will mostly be on those picks and how they fit into the team's plan for 2014. However, drafting is never that straightforward, and players, especially in middle and late rounds, are drafted to be developed over a couple of years. General manager Phil Emery began rebuilding the defense last year; which of those picks will take a leap forward this year? It is said that a draft pick makes the biggest leap from years one to two. There can be many factors in this: a full offseason with the coaches and system, a full year in...

Bears hope for good 'return' on investment - Brad Biggs: The team hopes that, if he can bring that extra element on offense, Chris Williams could be more versatile than Devin Hester was strictly as a returner in 2013.

Could Chris Williams be a more versatile version of Devin Hester?

The Chicago Bears are hoping they've unearthed a successor to the Windy City Flyer who can also play a part on offense. The Chicago Tribune's Bears beat reporter Brad Biggs wrote an interesting piece in yesterday's edition about wide receiver and kick returner Chris Williams, who was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Miami Dolphins out of New Mexico State (4.28 pro day 40-yard dash) in 2009. If, like me, you know next to nothing about the guy, it's well worth a look. He joined the CLF's Hamilton Tiger-Cats and was voted the CFL's most outstanding rookie in 2011, and the...

Has your perception of Jay Cutler changed?

There is arguably no more polarizing a figure in all of Chicago sports than Jay Cutler. He plays the highest profile of positions on the most popular sport, so he obviously has a lot of eyes on him. People either love him or hate him, but has your perception of him changed? There are a lot of legitimate reasons one could construct an anti-Jay Cutler argument, much like there are plenty of reasons one could debate on the pro-Jay side of things. Which ever side of the Cutler fence you sit on, odds are you've been there for quite some time. Some people have soured on him very early in his...
