John Fox reflects on first offseason in Chicago - Jeff Dickerson: New head coach pleased with progress, would love to duplicate success he got to see up close of Blackhawks.

Bears receive average offseason grade, fail to solve QB issue - Jeff Dickerson wanted team to pull new starting-calibre QB out of its collective arse, because starting-calibre QBs are so easy to find and teams are merely rolling the die on the likes of Geno Smith and Brian Hoyer for Sheades and giggles.  Welp, the season's over.

Jay Cutler has one last chance to make it work in Chicago - Robert Klemko starts up with the body language talk in the fourth paragraph. That's when I stopped reading; there are better things to do with my time (such as getting some lunch) and it's not the first time he's done the out-of-town-stupid thing.

Ex-Bears doing good things - John Tranchina: Former Bears corner Terry Schmidt, who credits George Halas and the Bears for helping his transition from the NFL to dental school, finds fulfillment in working for the VA and providing dental care in remote corners of the world that lack healthcare access.

TMZ - Blair Sheade: Jay Cutler's wife Kristin Cavallari gave a TMZ reporter fantasy football advice and advised fans to draft the Bears QB in the "first round." [Yes, Blair Sheade did really author - and I use that term loosely - an article based on something from TMZ. Oh Em Gee.]

Know thy enemy: Packers - Rob Demovsky: The Packers' best moves of the offseason weren't about bringing on new bodies but about keeping two of the best they had in Randall Cobb and Bryan Bulaga.  Moon MullinMike McCarthy: Why doesn’t ex-Bears QB Matt Blanchard have a job?

Know thy enemy: Lions - Michael Rothstein: Lions receive decent mark despite not re-signing Ndamukong Suh; the money required to keep him would have gutted the roster and probably prevented keeping multiple other key pieces.  Matt BowenEric Ebron among 2014 top-10 picks that must rebound in 2015.

Know thy enemy: Vikings - Ben Goessling: Minnesota needs to put weapons around second-year QB Teddy Bridgewater, and it has done that, with Adrian Peterson and Mike Wallace give them a strong offseason grade.  Vikings will be thorough with Trae Waynes.
