The Bears Den: April 13, 2012


"...where we're secure enough in our masculinity to give JC's hair the attention it deserves."

Bears schedule offseason team activities - Begins with voluntary offseason workout program at Halas Hall on Monday.

Greg Cosell: What’s at a Premium - Does good QB play cover for LT deficiencies? Is this why Bears are leaving Cutler at mercy of JWebb"Nation"?

Bears looking at Oregon State DB Brandon Hardin - Former teammate of Stephen Paea; mid/late-round prospect with quite an injury history who might not be good enough to play at his college position in the pros. A slam dunk Jerry pick, in other words.

Follow WCG on Twitter. Or more pictures of Gary Busey will be posted. '65 draft produced two Hall of Famers - "The best draft in Bears history was arguably in 1965 when the team selected Hall of Famers Dick Butkus and Gale Sayers with back-to-back picks in the first round."

Moments in NFL draft history - Ditka. Butkus. Sayers. Walter. Polish sausage.

Five teams that have fans talking - "Bears are gearing up to win now." Yeeeeeeeahhhhh baby! draft buzz - This will interest many WCGers: "Justin Blackmon may get drafted in the top 10, but some teams reportedly don't see him as a first-round pick."

ESPN Sports Science: Quinton Coples - Plus some speculation about his fit for the Bears.

Pass-happy era hitting RBs, LBs where it hurts - Funnily enough, Bears have Forte and Urlacher contracts to consider this season... though #54 isn't merely a 2-down run stuffer, which is what they meant.

Breaking down the draft's top linebackers - Spoiler: Luke Kuechly.

USAToday Database: Top 500 prospects - Sort players by ranking, position, schools and measurables while reading individual scouting reports. A draftnik's dream.

Draft preview: Running backs - Not a position the Bears are likely to target with a high or even mid round pick.

Talent vs character risk - A former NFL GM on teams' hits and misses. Speaking of which, wouldn't Janoris Jenkins be perfect for the Lions? They need a CB and he refuses to stop smoking weed... 2010 draft re-do - Guess which team are sole awardees of the "Wasted draft" category? Clue: Jerry was still drafting for us.

Todd McShay mock 5.0: NFC North - It's a sound idea for the Bears to get younger on defense through the draft, but CB wouldn't be my top priority in the 1st round. WalterFootball's updated 6-round mock draft.

Free Agency: Warnings From a Year Ago - I'm going to bookmark this for future offseasons, when people clamour for us to sign every free agent under the sun.

Know thy enemy: Vikings RBs recovering from knee injuries - Gerhart expected to ease early load on AP as the latter rehabs torn ACL, but will be coming off a torn MCL of his own.

Unfortunately embedding for it is disabled, so here's the link for the final Arnie musical, "To Kill Someone Again" from Terminator 2: The Opera (warning: salty language). In the meantime, let Conan the Raver entertain you...
