Bears Embrace Monsters of the Midway Theme


When Lovie Smith held his pre-training camp presser, he told us what the Bears would talk about a lot:

"The defense will become aggressive and force turnovers despite the continued uncertainty regarding Tommie Harris and the total lack of continuity in a secondary in which the Bears have started 40 different safety tandems during Smith’s tenure because, as he said, “We’re Chicago Bears. We have to play good defense. We’re going to talk a lot about the Monsters of the Midway, getting guys to that brand of football, being a tough physical group.”"

I guess the Monsters of the Midway theme is real, as evidenced by Danieal Manning’s t-shirt that he showed off (via Brad Biggs’ Twitter)

Is it just me or does it like like a ferret on that t-shirt?

It’s one thing to have some t-shirts printed up, it’s another thing to act like it.  I hope this camp reflects even half of a true Monsters of the Midway attitude.  By the way, the first practice of the day will be in shorts and shells.  Monsters, eh?
