Bear Dawn - Chicago Bears Links for May 29, 2013


Happy Hump Day on a holiday-shortened week.  Here are your Chicago Bears links for Wednesday May 29, 2013.

The NFL confirmed the rumors that the NFL Draft will be moving back a few weeks.  Here’s what the 2014 league year will look like:

Scouting Combine: February 18-25, 2014

Start of League Year and Free Agency: March 11, 2014

NFL Draft: May 8-10, 2014

Now if only they consider my idea of moving the draft to the city which gets the #1 pick so we don’t have to watch those insufferable Jets fans boo every pick, especially their own, they’ll be onto something.

President Obama toured the recovering Jersey Shore and played some carnival games with Gov. Chris Christie.  The First Fan whiffed on his five attempts to toss a football through a suspended tire.  Even though he whiffed, he still got a stuffed Bear.

 

Maybe Marc Trestman can work with the Prez and fix his mechanics?

NFL.com’s Adam Schein ranked his top indispensable offensive players in the league.  Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall ranked second behind only Adrian Peterson.  Schein calls Marshall Jay Cutler’s Linus blanket.   Doesn’t he know Cutler hasn’t had a blanky since he left Denver???

Matt Forte’s Week 1, one-handed catch against the Colts ranked #52 among the Top 100 plays of the 2012 season.   Just one spot behind Mark Sanchez’s butt-fumble, so we’ve got that going for us.

The Detroit Lions say they’re going to the Super Bowl.  I didn’t know tickets were for sale yet.  Tell them to bundle up, because it’s going to be awfully chilly in the stands in Jersey in February.

Chicago Bears Huddle ranks the Top 5 UFA’s most likely to make the roster.   They had me until the ending.  Really?

Here are my tweets of the day, go to Martellus Bennett, who dropped these tweets during the Heat vs Pacers game:

 

To which he followed up:

 

I would think Cutler might have something to say about being the third banana.

The big story of the day is going down at the United Center tonight. LET’S GO HAWKS!!!

BEAR DOWN!!!
