[Video] ChicagoBears.com: Rookie minicamp, part 2 - Marinelli: “This is our history. Monsters of the Midway. This is not some little theme somebody comes up with every other year. We out-hit our schedule. That’s what the Monsters of the Midway stands for. It’s about being physical. It’s about playing relentless. You’ll have a chance to show that today.”

Mike Tice's To-Do List - Hendricks: Now Tice has all these shiny, new toys, he has to figure out what to do with them.

[Video] Ranking the Lions ahead of the Bears? - Seifert: I'm surprised at how many national observers consider the Lions ahead of the Bears at the moment, despite the Bears' offseason improvements.
