The Bears Den: August 24th, 2010 Edition

...where the preseason is unfortunately always the real deal.

Bennett eager to return from injury - I feel bad for the guy. I'd hate for him to find the mythical Smith doghouse because he's been injured all preseason.

Hanie's only focus is rehabbing shoulder - Which it should be. What's he supposed to do, go all Tonya Harding on Todd Collins' knee or something?

Bears' offensive line has plenty of work to do - Very rarely do words ring as true as they do in this headline.

Bears don't need opponents peppering tackle Chris Williams - Pompei talks about the play/practice of Williams. Read it.

Follow WCG on Twitter. If you don't, we'll send David Taylor to your house while you're sleeping, and he'll photoshop your face.


Hanie, Collins to battle for Bears' backup QB job - They should take this battle into the octagon. But not until after going through Jay Glazer's MMA Training for Footballers.

'No excuse' for ongoing problems on 3rd down - 3rd down is going to be a thing this year, probably. If the defense can fix these things up now, perhaps we won't spend our Mondays saying, "if only, if only."

Harris showing Bears how it's done - Showing up and practicing. Good on you, sir.

Confident QB Collins sure he can master Martz's system - I hope he does. Still don't want to see him on the field.

Bears see no need for preseason panic - Generally speaking, I haven't seen them feel a need to panic in a long time. The whole getting Todd Collins thing comes closest in my book.

Injured Bennett keeps his head in playbook - ESPN is kind enough to chip in and basically say everything that we knew from the story.

Kreutz realistic about line's need to improve - Perhaps he should just threaten to break all their jaws. It worked another time.

Teammates not concerned about Urlacher - He'll be fine, they say. I hope he will be. He's sorely needed.
