2015 NFL Draft: Chicago Bears must target Landon Collins

The Chicago Bears made some huge changes to their coaching staff this offseason, hiring John Fox, Adam Gase, and Vic Fangio. Fangio was the mastermind behind the San Francisco 49ers’ defense over the past few seasons and is a huge upgrade over what Chicago had last season. That being said, there are some major needs this offseason on the defensive side of the football. Chicago...

Should the Bears Re-Sign Charles Tillman?

It was a rough season to say the least for the Chicago Bears defense last year. A team historically known as a defensive powerhouse, struggled throughout the year due to inexperience and injuries. One of the few veterans on that side of the ball, cornerback Charles Tillman, was absent most of the year. Tillman, who has spent all 12 seasons with the Bears, played in just two games...

Chicago Bears fare well in logo power rankings

It’s the symbol that represents a city and a franchise; it’s the mark that fans wear with pride, showing their allegiance to their favorite team. That’s what makes a logo important. And while every NFL team’s signature is recognizable, not all of them are created equal. Some are classic and iconic. Others are modern and cool. But a few are downright putrid, bastions from...

Roadmap To Bears Defensive Revival Is Crystallizing

Part of being able to fix an entire unit, offensively or defensively in a short time is part strategic planning and part good fortune.  It seems the latter part is lining up for the Chicago Bears heading into the 2015 off-season. Why? Everything they require to fix their historically bad defense is not only available, but available in decent bulk, which increases their chances of...

Chicago Bears: Prep work intensifies as draft nears

Transitioning from a 4-3 defense to a 3-4 is no easy task, but defensive coordinator Vic Fangio will make an enormous impact from the get-go. That being said, the prep work for head coach John Fox and newly-minted GM Ryan Pace is only intensifying with exactly a month until Draft day, and frankly the work is only made harder with not a lot of talent on the defensive side to get...

Should the Chicago Bears consider an interior lineman in the NFL Draft?

Glamorous. That’s not the word that comes to mind when thinking about players along the offensive line. And it’s especially not attributed to the guys in the middle of that group, the guards and center. While “skill-position” players get all of the headlines, and offensive tackles get the biggest contracts, interior linemen toil in relative anonymity. But in the center of...

ESPN NFL analyst Jon Gruden says Bears should 'look at getting a different leader under center'

ESPN NFL analyst Jon Gruden is known for being a quarterback guru and when he says that the Chicago Bears should start thinking about replacing Jay Cutler, the red flags are up. “I think John Fox is going to look at the body of work. They’re going to see that he didn’t get it done really with Lovie Smith or Marc Trestman, and now I’m the next head coach. I think you need...

The Chicago Bears have to grab this d-lineman in free agency

In a league where the rules are heavily tilted in the favor of the offense, there aren’t a lot of ways for the defense to fight back. All too often, their role in a game is to slow down the bleeding, not stop it. Dominating on that side of the ball has become more and more rare. But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. In fact, we’ve seen a few examples in recent years where...

Could the Chicago Bears Actually be Looking to Get Rid of Matt Forte?

There could be a number of changes next season in Chicago that could be good or maybe not so good for the team. To put it another way, they may not be real popular with the fans. Rumors have already been circulating that the team may not bring back wide receiver Brandon Marshall next season. Yes, he is getting older and can be a real pain in the behind, but he produces on the field...
