"...where we weren't kidding about it being Auh-nold Schwarzenburger musical appreciation week."

Forte not expected for start of Bears' offseason workouts - Tice: nothing will change in regard to the running game. Chalk Talk - Larry Mayer on the top draft steals in Bears history, potential Bears HOF candidates, and WRs taken by Bears in the 1st round. My question on which Bears player is most likely to be a secret cross-dresser goes unanswered.

USAToday's Team Report - If you read nothing else other than WCG this week, let it be this.

Follow WCG on Twitter. Easier than jumping out of a pool.

Moon Mullin: Emery's time is now - "Now the urgency is taking the steps forward that didn’t happen with the Jarron Gilberts, Dan Bazuins, Juaquin Iglesiases and more."

RB Bell will take part in Bears' voluntary-workout program - RFA will sign an offseason-workout agreement to protect from any injury.

Henricks: Forte Won't Win Fans By Not Making Voluntary Workouts - "...his stance came off as downright whiny because it overlooked the fact that he has had a strong back-up every year he has played in Chicago". Not that I agree with his stance, but I'm certain he did reference the yearly backup in his twitter rant.....

T.O. to the Bears? Not as crazy as you would think - Jim Miller: could be a low risk/high reward signing.

Bears getting light on defensive line - Team have now lost two of their (essentially) seven-man rotation on DL. Wootton only played on 6% of defensive snaps last season. Time to show up or ship out?

Hester may be relieved of kick-return duties - With FA additions Weems and Thomas both able to return kickoffs, is Hester going to see more time on offense?

Urlacher to receive Ed Block Courage Award for the Bear - Follows Anthony Adams, Israel Idonije & Charles Tillman.

Which starting quarterback has the shortest leash in 2012? - Isn't it nice not to have the Bears on the list? 2007 draft re-do - Bears have no players from this draft class left on the roster. Go Jer-ry! Go Jer-ry! Seriously, we're glad you went.

Bountiful '83 draft set table for Super Bowl team - In the 1983 draft, the Bears harvested seven eventual starters who in two years would help lead the franchise to its first Super Bowl championship.

[Video] A look at the fade route - Matt Bowen breaks down the goal line fade vs. Cover 1. Mock Drafts 2012 - Albert Breer has the Bears adding another weapon for Cutler at #19...

ProFootballTalk's mock draft, take two - "The Bears believe pass rusher is their biggest draft need." Draft Goals - Includes breakdown of the Bears' ideal first four rounds.

NFL Draft Capsule: Harrison Smith - Lovie loves strong safeties who are suspect in coverage.

NFP's Stock Watch: Part II - Wes Bunting on which defensive prospects are moving up draft boards.

The Emery Board: Jared Crick - Here's a new name in the mix. Could DE/DT hybrid be impact player for Bears at #19?

McMahon faces lawsuit from failed bank loans - "The biggest question raised by the lawsuit is this: Why in the hell would anyone make Jim McMahon a bank director?"

Brown enters Gators Hall of Fame - Former Bears DE Alex Brown inducted into the University of Florida’s Athletic Hall of Fame.

Speaking of former Gators - Percy Harvin among Gators players who undermined the program under Urban Meyer. The Gator Coach-Assault?

To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of the vimmen...
