"...where the cat is threatening to walk on my keyboard again..."

Dan Pompei's Bears mailbag - Have fans been unfair to Jerry Angelo?

Robbie Gould decries 'pee wee football' - Threatens switch to strong safety. No, I just made that up.

The NFL’s biggest draft busts since 2000 - Only one Bear on the list. Bears didn't give Jerry enough top-10 picks to do his thing.

Don Banks' Mock Draft 6.0 - Has Bears going OT in the first round, an idea that seems to have fallen out of favo(u)r in recent mocks. Played in pro-style offense for 3 years.

Bears draft preview: Quarterbacks - Unlikely to add one in draft.

NFL.com: Who is the greatest first-round pick of all time? - Bears have representatives in first and second rounds. Unfortunately the list didn't go as far as the eight round.

Football Outsiders: SackSEER 2012 - Statistical modeling predicts this to be a poor year for edge rushers. To be fair, they acknowledge how badly wrong they got it for Jason Pierre-Paul.

NFL.com: 2012 season prediction - What's Jay thinking in this photo? My guess: Boom! How's THAT for a sex cannon?

Former Bears exec Tim Ruskell will be sitting this draft out - Says Jerry has no intention to retire, either, hopes another team will let him/them ruin it.

You can't stop the music!
