The Bears Den: May 25, 2012

"...where the only good thing about all the Tebow coverage is that we've been reminded of Lolo Jones' existence."

Simple approach may be all Bears offense needs - Jim Miller: Bears were never going to be the greatest show on grass under former OC Martz.

Does Hardin finally solve Bears' woes at safety? - Bears have drafted a safety in each of the eight drafts in which Lovie Smith has operated as the team's head coach and still the position is a concern.

USAToday team report - Marshall: "If off-the-field isn't right, then nine times out of 10, it's going to be real hard to perform on the field."

J.T. Thomas can get drug possession charge dismissed - Likely will be cleared before the regular season begins, provided he completes the terms of a deferred sentence. Cutler headlines offensive stars returning from injury - Bucky Brooks: Chicago was rounding into form as a serious contender last season, but then Cutler went down.

Offensive-line uncertainty a buzzkill for Bears - What if August doesn’t offer much reassurance about the O-line? A jumble for now.

Bush more than big bruising backup - Should be perfect complement to Forte.

Marshall creating more than just separation or catches - Becoming a leader, running every drill as hard as he can and helping the rookies be the best they can be.

[Video] Can Bears Take NFC North in 2012? - Stephen A. Smith, Skip Bayless and Herm Edwards debate if the Bears can win their division this season.

[Video] Bowen, Kaplan on Bears' outlook - Matt Bowen breaks down Devin Hester, Matt Forte and the Bears' offense; calls Kaplan's view that this is, at best, a 9-win team "ridiculous".

[Video] Bears OTA talk on CTL - The panel, and Matt Bowen in particular, provide quality discussion on the Bears' first OTA.

[Video] Moon Mullin & Kip Lewis on OTAs - Discuss competition & chemistry in WR corps, Bennett in the slot, Cutler's leadership of his precision offense. ManWhoLooksLikeKennyRogers is back on form.

[Video] NFL32 on the Bears - Chris Mortensen on the Bears' chances. Resists temptation to tell Suzy Kolber he wants to kiss her.

Which Bears made the top 100 in the league? - CBSSports' Pete Prisco doesn't even have Briggs in his top 100.

[Video] Top 100 Players of 2012 - Lance Briggs - Dayum, he's good.

[Video] Top 100 Players of 2012 - Brian Urlacher - Watch the birthday boy knock over Matt Toeina in pursuit of the ballcarrier, to the bemusement of the Redskins' Casey Rabach. Opponents laud him for being hilarious on the field and making the game fun to play.

Shaping the Slot - Various fits for the evolving role of slot receivers. Denver used to use Marshall to dominate inside.

Matt Bowen: Breaking down Woodson vs. the 'Tare' route - Yeah, I know it's a Packer highlight, but we like Bowen's breakdown of game tape.

Packers atop 2015 NFL Power Rankings - Yes, 2015. Bears D will have lost some of its top pieces by then.

Know thy enemy - Lions, Cliff Avril $2 million a year apart in contract talks.

Dolphins don’t have, don’t need a No. 1 WR. - I've heard that before, and look how that turned out. Also, never loved Marshall anyway.

Admittedly somewhat dated if affectionate humour, but then again it's from 80s TV.
