Bears Waive Long-Snapper Brandon Hartson

Bears Waive Long-Snapper Brandon Hartson

The Bears waived their long snapper after an inconsistent preseason. So, it turns out we still don't know who's snapping passes back to Robbie Gould and Pat O'Donnell. The Bears announced that they waived long snapper Brandon Hartson after his uneven preseason. Hartson signed with the team in December 2013 and appeared in all four preseason games this season. Part of the Bears' post-roster-cuts day has been spent working out other long snappers, in addition to the time spent earlier this week on other snappers. The other 2 LS #Bears worked out Sunday: Luke Ingram & Casey Kreiter. — Jeff...

2014 NFL Predictions: Pete Prisco Of CBS Sports has the Chicago Bears 7-8-1

On Wednesday we looked at how Pat Kirwan of CBS Sports had the Chicago Bears finishing the 2014 season and today it's his colleague Pete Pricso's turn to predict. He picks the score of every single game in the NFL and he also has the Bears missing the playoffs. Many of you were unhappy with Wednesday's look at Pat Kirwan's 2014 NFL predictions. He had  the Chicago Bears going 8-8 and missing the postseason. His fellow NFL expert at CBS Sports, Pete Prisco, actually predicts every single game of the NFL season, but his picks won't excite any Bears fans either. Here's how he has the 2014...

2014 Chicago Bears Initial 53-Man Roster

2014 Chicago Bears Initial 53-Man Roster

The Bears have made all the necessary cuts to get to their initial 53-man roster. The final round of cuts is over, and the Bears have arrived at their initial 53-man roster. We'll rush to point out that if Marquess WIlson gets put on IR with the designation to return, the earliest that can go into effect is on Tuesday, and another player will be added then. And the entire thing is in flux anyway, as the Bears can make a waiver pickup like they've done in the past with David Bass. But with those disclaimers aside, here's the 53-man roster. QB Jay Cutler, Jimmy Clausen, David...

Bears Roster Cuts 2014: Roster Down to 53 Today

Bears Roster Cuts 2014: Roster Down to 53 Today

It's Cut-Down Day. The Bears have to have the roster at 53 by 4:00 PM Eastern time. Will somebody unexpected get cut or make the roster? Today can be the single best or worst day for a young player trying to realize their dream of playing the NFL. Roster cuts are due today, as teams work to get their roster under the 53-man limit by 4 PM Eastern Time. Yesterday the Bears cut 5 of the 22 players necessary to get under that limit, and with the tweet from Peggy Kusinski yesterday that the Bears may be using their Injured Reserve/Designation to Return on Marquess Wilson once cuts are over and...

Chicago Bears to place Marquess Wilson on Injured Reserve with a designation to return

Peggy Kusinski of NBC Chicago is reporting that the Chicago Bears plan on putting injured wide receiver Marquess Wilson on injured reserve with a designation to return sources tell me the #Bears will not put @MarquessWilson on IR for the year, expect to "designate" him to return, makes WR spots interesting — Peggy Kusinski (@peggykusinski) August 29, 2014 If the Chicago Bears do indeed place Marquess Wilson on the injured reserve with a designation to return, the first game he would be able to play in would be week 10 against the Green Bay Packers.

Chicago Bears 2014 Roster Cuts: Bears release RB Jordan Lynch

The Chicago Bears are slowly but surely getting down to the 53 man roster limit. Jordan Lynch is the latest to be informed he's not in the 2014 plans. #Bears have informed local product and NIU standout Jordan Lynch he will be placed on waivers. — Brad Biggs (@BradBiggs) August 29, 2014 Brad Biggs was the first to report that Mount Carmel High School and Northern Illinois star Jordan Lynch was being released. As a former quarterback transitioning to running back he faced an uphill battle. He not only had to learn a new position, he had to learn how to play special teams. As backup...

2014 Chicago Bears Roster Cuts: Bubble players who impressed

The Bears wrapped up the preseason last night and gave the back end of the roster a final chance to impress, by not having any starters or the majority of the second-stringers even take to the field. With everything to play for, young players and a few veterans vying for the final roster spots got a chance to impress. Who took advantage of it? Check here all day as we update you on who gets cut. The preseason is officially in the books and, before full attention turns to the regular season opener a week from Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, teams must make their final roster cuts. Cuts...

Bears Vs. Browns: Notes, Scribbles, and Things Jotted Down

Bears Vs. Browns: Notes, Scribbles, and Things Jotted Down

The Bears lost to the Browns last night; we're going over our notes taken from last night's preseason contest. The first thing to point out, the Bears kept the starters and some other key, solidly-entrenched players out of the game - so, 29 healthy scratches in the game for the Bears. That means plenty of Backup Bowl 2014! Early impressions of David Fales' first drive - honestly, it left me a little impressed. The downfield throw to Josh Bellamy should have been laid out a little more on a line/in front of Bellamy, but several good decisions and two good runs after the catch by Shaun...

Bears Vs Browns Final Score: Browns Beat Bears in Preseason Finale 33-13

Bears Vs Browns Final Score: Browns Beat Bears in Preseason Finale 33-13

The Bears finished out the preseason by falling to the Browns. We made it, folks. We slogged through four preseason games, including last week's debacle against Seattle and this week's annual finale of backup badness against the Browns, to get to this point. After tonight, we are final cuts away from the regular season. David Fales started and played the entire game, and had some flashes of good to go with some flashes of bad. The Bears rested 29 healthy scratches, but the Browns started their starters and got everybody one final tuneup. Fales started out hot in the first half, throwing a...

Instant Recap: Browns Defeat Bears 33-13 to End the Preseason

Instant Recap: Browns Defeat Bears 33-13 to End the Preseason

The Cleveland Browns won their first game of the preseason, defeating the Chicago Bears by a final score of 33-13. Here are some quick hitter observations from the game: Something to Build On: Does a 100.5 QB rating look "pretty" for starting QB Brian Hoyer? Hoyer for one series with the first-team offense and went 6-of-8 for 69 yards on a drive that was capped off with a 1-yard touchdown run by RB Ben Tate. It wasn't a perfect drive from Hoyer, who was facing the Bears' second-string defense and also missed a touchdown throw to TE Jordan Cameron, but it was enough to finally build...

Preseason Week 4: Browns lead Bears at halftime Score 17-13 Second Half Open Thread

Preseason Week 4: Browns lead Bears at halftime Score 17-13 Second Half Open Thread

The Bears trail the Browns by 4 at the half. David Fales at the half: 11/17 129 yards 1 TD That's not so bad, as he saw the Cleveland first string defense for a while. Johnny Manziel is running all over the place , but the Bears have held him to 1 TD, and 1 FG since he's been in the game. Some random thoughts: Santonio Holmes probably made this team today. Will the second half  be the Jordan Lynch show? Josh Bellamy really wants to be on this team. I had three seconds left in this fantasy draft, and accidentally drafted Stevan Ridley.  Is there some kind of fantasy shame tower I should...

Opposing quarterbacks know to pick on CB Leon McFadden if he is in the game, apparently.

The drive ended with a 1-yard rushing touchdown by RB Ben Tate, putting the Browns ahead 7-3. That's where we stand heading into the second quarter of play, with QB Johnny Manziel now in the game.

2014 Preseason Week 4: Chicago Bears at Cleveland Browns & Others Live Blog

The Bears take on the Browns, and everyone else takes on everyone else in this last game before the Regular Season. The real thing begins next Thursday, with the Packers (hopefully) losing to the Seahawks. Until then, this nonsense will have to tide us over. Rookie quarterback David Fales leads the Chicago Bears to Cleveland to take on Hoyer, Manziel, and the rest of the Dawg pound. Some questions to ask: Can Fales play his way into the 2nd QB slot? (No) Will the Bears attempt to make the Browns offense look really good? (Probably) Will the fourth quarter of this game be the longest...

Stephen White: Chicago Bears could win Super Bowl this season

Stephen White: Chicago Bears could win Super Bowl this season

Despite the woes being thrown in bunches by many Bears fans this preseason, at least one former NFL player thinks Chicago could be hoisting the Lombardi Trophy next February. If you were to ask 1,000 random NFL fans who they thought would win the Super Bowl this season, odds are not very many of them would say the Chicago Bears.  And of the very few that might say Chicago, probably most of them would be Bears fans. But one former NFL player, retired defensive end Stephen White, thinks Chicago could have all the pieces necessary to go all the way. As long as the [defensive] back end...
