Training camp starts in five days! Anybody else ready? Everybody should be raising their hands.
Lester's Ten Most Important Bears Update
Lester started this WCG staple series last week and we carried you back from 10 to 7. This week, 6 through 2 all graced the WCG front page, and that leaves just number one to come.
Spoilers, boys and girls - #1 drops today; enjoy that.
If you can get past the 1000+ comment slugfest, there's some good information in here about the future of the Bears. And plenty to disagree with. Les brought you a panel of ESPN folks lining up the future of each franchise.
Sam tackled the question of Chris Conte and how the new and hopefully improved defense can help make him serviceable again.
Ronk attended an event with Kyle Long and got some great answers from the second-year offensive lineman.
NFL.com dropped their coaching power rankings, and they inserted Marc Trestman in the list at #24.
Lester's Ten Thoughts this week included bits about Candlestick Park, the refusal to retire Brett Favre's number, Jimmy Graham the tight-end-receiver-man, and the Packers' open books. (Which, given my day job, seeing stuff like this is just a thrill.)
We posed the ever-relevant question: Is Matt Forte the best all-around running back in the NFL?
Sam also asked where the Bears' Black Unicorn, Martellus Bennett, ranked in the league's tight ends. I'd say, certainly behind Jimmy Graham.
Full disclaimer ahead - I know nothing about German music. I know nothing about music in general, but that's beside the point. Anyway, far as I can tell, we've nailed everything else I already know about German music (namely Rammstein), so, if you played Guitar Hero 3's DLC, this is the original song.
