The initial exhibition game on the NFL schedule should be viewed as an extension of training camp in the evaluation process, a "scrimmage" in which established vets run their base schemes and rookies see the majority of the reps against pro competition...
As the Bears have navigated their way through the offseason workout program, the voluntary minicamp and the rookie camp, they have started to become a team. A new team. When they convene at Halas Hall on Monday for the first of 10 scheduled OTA...
On Monday, what stood out about the Bears' performance on Sunday is the pass protection held up both in terms of recognition and execution against an aggressive, accomplished blitzing team. Arizona defensive coordinator Ray Horton sent more than four...
