    The Chicago Bears
    The Chicago Bears are entering their first offseason with new head coach Lukas Smith. So far his biggest move has been slapping the franchise tag on Star RB Matt Forte. Coach Smith was quoted as telling Forte, "Dont worry. We will get you the deal you deserve." For Bear Fans everywhere, lets hope he is right.
    Other news, The Bears announced the release of big time speedster and special teams super star, Devin Hester. "I felt like it was time to move on and we could use the cap space to pursue more players to fill the needs this team has got to get filled."
    Multiple Big Name Players are being targeted this offseason in an aggressive move by Head Coach Lukas Smith, but he refused to mention any numbers or player names at this time.

    Free Agency: A Review
    Here are the key moves for the Bears this offseason:
    + TE Dustin Keller 87 OVR
    ~ Finally solidifies the TE position.
    ~ Will make a good target for Cutler in Coach Nacho's offense
    + RG Brian Waters 87 OVR
    ~ Gives the Bears a solid Pass Blocker at the Guard position
    ~ Should help keep defenders off of Cutler
    + LG TJ Lang 82 OVR
    ~ Young Pass Blocking Guard
    ~ Major Improvement over less then steller LG Chilo Rachal
    + WR Devery Henderson 78 OVR
    ~ Will replace Devin Hester's speed at the WR position.
    ~ Will help in the Return Game
    + DT Jason Jones 87 OVR
    ~ Big time DT that will add to an already solid D-Line
    ~ Joins former Eastern Michigan teammate LG TJ Lang
    ~ Instant Starter
    + DT Sen' Derrick Marks 77 OVR
    ~ May not be on Jones's level of play, but very solid inside and a major improvement over last year's interior lineman.
    ~ Will be a great number 2
    + LOLB Justin Durant 84 OVR
    ~ Adds to the already outstanding LB corp for the Bears
    ~ Will finally solidify the LOLB Position for the Bears
    + CB Mike Jenkins 84 OVR
    ~ Very solid Man Coverage Corner that will play very well across from Tillman.
    ~ Speed will match up well to counter balance the slower Tillman
    ~ Will provide years of service in the secondary for Coach Smith
    Overall I got to say a very successful off-season so far for the Bears grabbing 6 80+ OVR players out of the Free Agency Pool. (3 87 OVR players) And grabbed some young players that will give the Bears years of service.

    Hopeful Bears lay egg in first game of Preseason, lose 20-6.
    [​IMG]
    Chicago, IL - The above phone was a familiar scene in last night's game against the New Orleans Saints. Bears getting dragged around by the Saints RBs.
    It was feast or famine when it came to the Bears D last night. Sometimes, they looked like a brick wall standing in the way of the Saints Offense. Then cracks would emerge and Coach Smith couldn't seal them before another first down or TD leaked out. "It was a rough game for our team. Our defense would start to get some momentum going, then a big play here or there would bring us back down," was Coach Smith's reaction after the game. But the defense was not the major problem last night, oh no. Far from it. The offense was horrible all around. Even the first play was a nightmare with Bear RB Matt Forte putting the ball on the ground after a decent hit. "We are out of sync after a long offseason. We will get back on it," said QB Jay Cutler, who threw a pick on the next drive after the fumble.
    Overall, a terrible game. Hopefully Coach Smith will get his boys back on the same page. Or at least for his job's sake, he better.

    BEARS MAKE MOVES AFTER LET DOWN
    Just hours after the Bears suffered defeat at the hands of the Saints, they went to work on filling some holes that became exposed. First was the signing of NFL Vet FB Lousaka Polite. The following day, the Bears brought in former Heisman winner QB Matt Leinart and RT Mario Henderson. "After last nights game, I just dont have a safe feeling when it comes to our back up situation. Clay (Norwell) is a decent backup, he just needs some time to grow into the spot," said Coach Smith at his press conference today.
    Personally I'm not sure if its enough. But we shall see how the next games play out.

    CHICAGO BEARS GEARING UP FOR SUNDAY GAME AGAINST RIVAL VIKINGS
    By Lukas Smith
    The Bears had less then a steller preseason this year, losing in blow out fashion to the New Orleans Saints, 20-7. But Coach Smith is anything but pessimistic. "I got a good feeling. We played them really well last year and they were the Super Bowl Champs. We just need to stay on point and not turn the ball over. We can win. We just have to play like Chicago Bears," said Coach Smith at his weekly press conference.
    He also announced some changes being made to the line up. Matt Lienart has won the back up QB job over rookie QB Clay Norwell. Mario Henderson has also exploded to life in practice and squeezed in the starting lineup at RT. Even the recievers changed around with Alshon Jeffery taking back his starting role over veteren Devery Henderson. "Jeffery did well last season in the second half of the season last year. Devery understands the Jeffery has won his job back. Henderson is just happy to be able to share his knowledge of the game with our young recievers. He is a class act," said WRs Coach Jimmy Spurlin.

    BEARS GET DESTROYED IN MINNESOTA, LEFT WITH MORE QUESTIONS THEN ANSWERS
    Its opening week here in TLY, and the Bears had high hopes in their hearts for this season to come. To put it simply, their are starting off on the wrong foot.

    Even the very first drive of the season started off horribly for the Bears, as newly aquired TE Dustin Keller fumbled the ball after making a catch for a first down, giving the ball to the Vikings in very favorable field position. And it was all down hill from there.

    The Bears could never establish the run game, and QB Jay Cutler couldnt hit a wide open reciever if somebody had a gun to his head. "We were off. It felt like we never left the Preseason game against the Saints. We got to get that all behind us if we want to win any games this year," responded the aggrivated QB Cutler. To his defense though, he did only throw one INT the entire game, but it was a costly one.

    The defense, at times looked great, but mostly looked exhausted and completly out of the game mentally. "It was embarrsing," was all Defensive Coordinator, Beau Smith, had to say after the game.

    It gets no easier for the Bears as next week they play against the Green Bay Packers.

    CHICAGO GET FIRST WIN OF THE YEAR IN UPSET AGAINST PACKERS, 27-20
    [​IMG]
    Chicago, IL - After last weeks thrashing at the hands of the Vikings, the season only looked to get worst as the Green Bay Packers were rolling into town with one of the best offenses in the league lead by former MVP, and State Farm Double Checker, Aaron Rodgers. "They are a great team. You better be ready for a barn burner when you have Aaron Rodgers coming to town," was CB Charles Tillmans two cents worth on the upcoming game. "This is a big game. I mean this is one of the great rivalries in the NFL. You better believe we will be leaving it all out there on the field," said Bears Defensive Captain MLB Brian Urlacher. And leave it out on the field they did.
    The game started as many people expected it too. The Packers drove down the field and got into the redzone eating up half of the first quarter. But this is were the Bears Defense has shown its best stuff, and they didnt disappoint this time either. They held the Packers to a FG to only give the Packers a 3 point lead. And out came the Bears Offense and QB Jay Cutler. "We know that lately we have been the weakest part of the team, but we will change that," was the words of the Bears QB. But talk is cheap, and on the first drive, nothing had seemed to change. The Bears drove down the field and was only able to get 3 points up on the board to tie up the game in the second quarter. Then after a good stand by the Bears Defense, the Bears O did something they havnt done yet this season, SCORED A TD! Thats right folks. A TD pass from QB Jay Cutler to none other then Brandon Marshall. And it was like a weight had been lifted off their sholders. The Packers would score again on a TD pass from Aaron Rodgers to Jordy Nelson to close out the half making it a 10-10 game.
    The second half started about how the first game as a whole went. The Bears failed to gain any yards on the first two plays, then on the third down conversion attempt, Cutler would get sacked and fumble the ball, just to have it scooped up by BJ Raji for a TD for the Packers to give them the lead and seize control of the game, or so it seemed. On the next drive, the Bears started off with a few runs with RB Matt Forte to hopefully get some momentum going their way, but could only get one first down. Then up came another 3rd and long attempt for the Bears. "I knew it was a passing situation. And I knew that I wasnt gonna let Coach down again," said Jay Cutler after the game. And he far from let Coach Smith down, hurling a deep pass to TE Dustin Keller, who had gotten behind the secondary, who then took it 58 yards to the house to tie the game back up 17 all.
    The game continued to progress with both teams starting good drives but never being able to finish the drive, includeing one situation where the Packers had gotten down to the Bears 5 yard line. On the second play from with in the 5, LOLB Justin Durant sacked Rodgers pushing the Packers back to the 10 yard line and forcing a passing situation on 3rd down. On a potential game sealing play, Rodgers passed the ball to TE Finley, but the ball was snatched out of the air by MLB Brian Urlacher and taken to the Packers 45 yard line. The Bears would only be able to get a FG out of the turnover, but the Bears had a 20-17 lead over the Packers late in the forth quarter. But that would prove to not be enough when the Packers drove back down the field again, but were held once again to a FG to push the score back to 20-20.
    After the touchback on the following kickoff, the Bears started on their own 20 yard line with just over 4 mins left in the game. "We knew that it came down to this drive. You could feel it. This drive would determine the game," Coach Smith said after the game. And he was right. On the first play, the Bears gave the ball to Forte on a draw a play that hadnt worked all day. Forte got the ball, hit the hole, made one of the Packer LBs miss on a tackle, and it was off to the races as Forte took the ball into the endzone for a 80 yard TD run to put the Packers down for good.
    The Packers had a chance to come back and tie the game as the final minute ticked away on the clock. QB Aaron Rodgers lead his team down to the 40 yard line with 35 seconds on the clock. Out of the Qbs in this league, I would have to say that Aaron Rodgers is one of the few I would trust to pull my team out of the fire and put us in a place to win the game. This was not one of those times as Rodgers hurled the ball down field and Mike Jenkins snatched the ball out of the air, putting the game away for good and giving the Bears their first win of the season. Coach Smith said this after the game, "It feels great to finally get over the hump and win this year, especially in the fashion that we did it in. We now know we can win in the clutch and play Bears Football the way it should be."
    Overall it was a great game. Easily the best game that Coach Lukas Smith has been apart of as the Head Coach of the Chicago Bears. Will this win give the bears enough momentum to put together a win streak? Or is this a one hit wonder? We will find out next week when the Panthers come to town.
    Players of the Game:
    Chicago Bears
    HB Matt Forte 19 att 113 yrds 1 TD
    MLB Brian Urlacher 3 Tak 2 Ints
    Green Bay Packers
    WR Greg Jennings 8 rec 86 yrds

    Bears Play In Squeak Win Out Against Panthers On The Back Of Forte and Defense.
    Chicago, IL - After an emotional win last week against the rival Packers, the Bears were looking to put their first win streak of the year together by beating the always dangerous Carolina Panthers. And as expected, it was anything but an easy game with the Bears just barely able to squeak out a victory, 40-38.
    Bears RB Matt Forte kept his momentum from last game where he scored what turned out to be the game winning TD by putting up 2 more on his total for the year, his last (once again) putting the game out of reach for the Panthers. "I'm in a groove right now and Coach Smith knows it. As long as he keeps giving me the ball, I'll keep putting points on the board," said the recently resigned RB. But he wasnt the only one who had a good game. QB Jay Cutler was impressive out there making the throws he needed to and only turned the ball over once while putting 2 in the endzone, one to WR Devery Henderson and one to WR Brandon Marshall. And speaking of Henderson, he even took a kick off back for a TD in the second half giving the momentum back to the Bears after Cutler's only pick of the night. Overall I give the Bears offense a A- on the day.
    The Defense, now this is an interesting discussion here. They had their highs like picking Cam Newton off twice, then they had thier lows, giving up 38 points. Brian Urlacher came through big time getting 9 tackles on the day, 3 for a loss. Other stand outs had to be the play of both Tim Jennings, who had 1 INT and 5 tackles on the day, and Major Wright, 2 tackles and 1 INT. But as a whole, it was a disappointing game for the Bears D. I give them a C on the day.
    No matter which way you look at it, when the clock hit zero, it was the Bears who had won the day. Next week the Dallas Cowboys roll into town hoping to end the Bears winning ways.
    Good game Blaza . Good Luck the rest of the year.
