The Bear's Den: January 17, 2017 - Should Chicago Re-up Jeffery?

The Bear's Den: January 17, 2017 - Should Chicago Re-up Jeffery?

Will the Bears do what it takes to bring Alshon back to Chicago? Does he want to be here? Will he walk? The Den will be taking a look at one of the Chicago Bears' 2017 unrestricted free agents (UFA's) and restricted free agents (RFA's) each day until we have knocked out the list. I will be talking about the player, whether I personally would sign the player and to what contract, and what my best guess the Bears will do with him. I'm actually going to cut the descriptive short today, because if you are a Bears fan, you know all about Alshon Jeffery, the fact that he played under the...

Bears expected to hire Jeremiah Washburn as offensive line coach

Bears expected to hire Jeremiah Washburn as offensive line coach

As reported by numerous outlets, the Chicago Bears are expected to hire Jeremiah Washburn as their offensive line coach, replacing Dave Magazu. Washburn was the assistant o-line coach with the Miami Dolphins during the 2016 season, and prior to that he was the o-line coach of the Detroit Lions from 2013-2015. He was Detroit’s assistant o-line coach from 2009-2012. He worked with the Baltimore Ravens before that, serving as an area scout from 2005-2008 and as a player personnel assistant from 2003-2004. Washburn has a connection to both Bears head coach John Fox and to offensive...

Playoff Sunday Open Thread

Playoff Sunday Open Thread

So, anything interesting going on today? Does anyone have errands to run? With the state of the weather in Kansas City, the Chiefs/Steelers game was moved. As a result, the first game to be played will be the NFC matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers. Dallas has the services of Rod Marinelli, who at least has seen Aaron Rodgers up close a number of times from the former’s time as the Bears’ defensive coordinator. Whether or not that will be of help to the folks with the star on the side of their helmets remains to be seen, but one of these two teams is going to...

Devin Hester likely to retire, next stop Canton

Devin Hester likely to retire, next stop Canton

Former Chicago Bears’ great Devin Hester, who was named a 1st Team All Pro three times as a Bear, may have played the final game of his career on Saturday night in Atlanta. The 34 year old Hester, who was picked up by the Seattle Seahawks on January 3rd, was feeling very spry against the Falcons as he had a 78 yard kickoff return, a 50 yard kickoff return and a 80 yard punt return called back on a penalty. His spark in the return game wasn’t enough as the Seahawks lost 36 to 20. After the game Hester said he probably would never play again, saying “I told my wife this is pretty much...

Playoff Saturday Open Thread

Playoff Saturday Open Thread

The Divisional Round of playoffs are this weekend, and the Bears are at home. Sigh. Today sees the action kickoff with the Seattle Seahawks facing the Atlanta Falcons. Of interest to Bears fans might be the chance to see Devin Hester in the return game fair catch action or the potential to see two teams that are not the Green Bay Packers play for an NFC win. After the NFC matchup is an AFC battle between the Texans and the Patriots. The Texans will be trying to prove that Brock Osweiler as totally a playoff-caliber quarterback. The good news is that Osweiler has proven that he can play to...

2017 NFL Draft: Mel Kiper’s positional rankings for the Chicago Bears’ needs

2017 NFL Draft: Mel Kiper’s positional rankings for the Chicago Bears’ needs

I talked about it in my last podcast, the three and thirteen Chicago Bears have a number of needs on their current roster. Besides the obvious positions, quarterback, safety and corner, their depth could use a boost at just about every spot on the roster. As of right now the Bears have seven picks in the 2017 NFL Draft, they have a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, two 4ths, a 5th and a 7th. General manager Ryan Pace will no doubt shore up a few of the Bears’ needs in free agency, but there’s no way he plug all their holes. Even though Pace has shown a propensity to draft using a best player available...

What Can The Bears Do In The Off-Season To Improve For Next Year?

It been a pretty dismal season for the Chicago Bears, containing a record of 3-13 has forced general manager Ryan Pace to play some of his rookie stars which unfortunately hasn’t bolded well for the head coach. An injury-ravaged roster, combined with an ongoing youth movement, meant several rookies were featured in the line-up or […] The post What Can The Bears Do In The Off-Season To Improve For Next Year? appeared first on Bears Gab.

Chicago Bears Team MVP: Jordan Howard

By Bryan Dietzler The 2016 season has come to an end for the Bears and there are probably many of us who are happy it’s over.  3-13 is a miserable record and the Bears found little success in much of anything this season.  You can blame injuries for a bulk of their problems but coaching […] The post Chicago Bears Team MVP: Jordan Howard appeared first on Bears Gab.

Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings: Fourth Quarter Open Thread

Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings: Fourth Quarter Open Thread

Heading into the final quarter of the 2016 regular season, the Vikings hold a 24-10 lead. Coming out of the locker room at halftime of the season finale at U.S. Bank Stadium, the Minnesota Vikings held a 24-10 lead over the Chicago Bears. Chicago got the ball first, having won the opening coin toss and deferring. The kickoff from Kai Forbath went into the end zone for a touchback, giving the Bears the ball at their own 25 to start things out. Jordan Howard picked up where he left off, as he took the first play of the half for 18 yards, putting him over 100 for the afternoon. Matt Barkley...

Previewing Bears/Vikings With Chicago Bears Review

I got an opportunity to sit down with Larry D from Chicago Bears Review to talk about this Sunday’s game. It’s been a bit of an ugly season for us fans of the Minnesota Vikings, what with the team completely disintegrating before our eyes after a 5-0 start. But, as the old saying goes, misery loves company, and that’s exactly what we’ll be seeing at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday afternoon when the purple and gold host the Chicago Bears in the 2016 regular season finale. To preview this one, I got an opportunity to sit down with Larry D from the Chicago Bears Review podcast. We got a...

The Chicago Bears versus the Washington Redskins Game Review

By Bryan Dietzler There were several experts, fans and members of the media, including this writer, that thought that Chicago had a good shot at beating the Washington Redskins this Saturday.  After all, Chicago’s last few games had been very close.  Throw in the fact that their third string quarterback, Matt Barkley, had been playing […] The post The Chicago Bears versus the Washington Redskins Game Review appeared first on Bears Gab.

Sam’s Film Room: Matt Barkley continues to prove why he wasn’t a first round pick

Sam’s Film Room: Matt Barkley continues to prove why he wasn’t a first round pick

The Washington Redskins desperately needed a victory over the Chicago Bears on Saturday. Sitting just outside the NFC playoff picture, Washington won convincingly 41-21. In this game, Kirk Cousins played exceptionally throwing for 9.3 yards per attempt, but it was Matt Barkley’s poor performance that solidified the game for the Redskins. He threw five interceptions to a Washington defense that has struggled the entire season. A major theme of this game was the poor decision-making by Barkley. This is perfectly illustrated by his first interception when the Bears were down 14-0 at the...

Why it Worked, Week 15: Ty Montgomery breaks loose against Bears

Why it Worked, Week 15: Ty Montgomery breaks loose against Bears

Ty Montgomery put together a breakout performance against the Bears in week 15. Let’s take a closer look. Unless you’ve been living on MARS eating poo-tatoes for the past week, you’ve probably heard about Ty Montgomery’s performance this past Sunday against the Chicago Bears. The new Packers wunderkind ran around, over, and through the Bears defense on Saturday to the tune of 162 yards on the ground, with 96% of those yards coming after making contact with a defender. 156 of Ty Montgomery's 162 rushing yards today came after contact, and he forced seven missed tackles— Gordon...

ESPN’s John Clayton Projects Tony Romo As Chicago Bears 2017 Starting Quarterback

John Clayton is calling it now, Romo will be the starter for Chicago in 2017. There's been a lot of speculation in recent months over Tony Romo's future. Some people, Jerry Jones chief among them, would like Romo to stay in Dallas, even if that would likely be as the backup to Dak Prescott. Others don't see a scenario where Romo would spend another season as a backup anywhere. One of those people is ESPN's John Clayton, who projects Romo to be the 2017 starter for the Bears in a post where he projects which teams will have new starting quarterbacks in 2017.
