The Bears Den: May 25th, 2010 Edition


It's a 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes; it's dark and we're wearing sun glasses. Hit it!

Face of franchise is smiling once again - As long as he doesn't get too smiley and act like Pedro Cerrano in Major League 2, sharing butterflies with strangers and enlightening them about the benefits of peace, I'm ok with him being happy to be playing football again

Charles Tillman trading places for Bears  - I think it's because Peanut keeps getting crazy hurt, but maybe that's just me.

Mike Martz likes what he sees in Jay Cutler at Bears camp - As if he'd come out after one minicamp and say "We're completely screwed." Oh, wait, it's Martz. He might actually do just that.

Mike Tice: Chicago Bears can protect Jay Cutler in Mike Martz system - At this time of year, anything the coaches say really is going to be boring as hell. Again, why would Mike Tice come out in May and say "There is absolutely no way this group of guys can protect Jay Cutler. I heard he can move, and he better, because Omi is like like a turnstile or your mom, and spins quickly for anyone>"

Chicago Bears: Safety Chris Harris happy to be back in Bears' secondary - Here is the 33rd copy of Chris harris being happy to be back in Chicago. Oh, yeah, that's right, he's been telling us personally since Day 1. So scoop that, Chicago Tribune.

I don't always drink beer. But when I do, I follow WCG on Twitter.

Running still key to Chicago Bears, even under Mike Martz - Hahahahahahaha. Yeah ok, whatever guys. I agree, it's key, because the receivers are going to have to run their routes to precision.

LeFevour's base deal worth $1.9M, $2.63M max - I'm fairly certain that the Easy Button at Staples can get you a clipboard holder for a much better deal.

 Don't expect Chicago to host Super Bowl - You know that feeling when you're sitting on the west side of the stadium, and that lake wind comes in and punches you in the face and it feels like it's about 300 degrees cooler than it actually is? Apparently, there's a lot of people who aren't willing to pay $3,000 for that feeling. Oh, and something about not having enough seats.

Rankings: Are Cowboys ready to finally make a playoff run? - No. On a side note, this is about the weakest way to rank teams I've ever seen. It's basically "take all the teams that were good last year, and rank them in a higher group." 

Supreme Court denies NFL's request for broad antitrust protection - The NFL teams must sell hats separately.

Vick not content as Eagles' backup QB, vows to be a starter in NFL - Does anyone remember playing Madden circa 06, 07, when there were always the d-bags who would play as the Falcons just because Michael Vick was fast enough that very few of the defensive players could catch him? Then they'd do these ridiculous wide bootlegs, and if you blitzed the cornerback on the side that they favored rolling out to, you could make him fumble really easily? Good times.

Here's how you can tackle someone, provided you ever need to tackle someone who is standing perfectly still. Extra Analysis: That dude is totally going to cough the ball up.
