Your Chicago Bears Morning Links – 9/11/13


Good morning Chicago Bears fans.  Here are a few links to get you started:

First of all, it’s 9/11.  Never forget.

The Bears posted a slideshow from inside the locker room before and after their Week 1 game.  It’s awesome!!!

Jeff Hughes from Da Bears Blog offers some good insight about the Bears defense not being too reliant on takeaways.

As much as we’re all crushing on rookie Kyle Long, he’s not perfect.  He blew an assignment and explained what happened on ESPN 1000.

ESPN Chicago has their own version of the Chicago Bears Stock Watch.  Of course, I’m partial to ours, which focuses on guys in contract years whose stock will actually translate into dollars.

NFL Network analyst Jamie Dukes appeared on Mully and Hanley and kind of made an ass of himself with some just flat wrong analysis.

Former Bears safety Tom Zbikowski has been suspended for 4 weeks for PED’s.  If you’re wondering how that works when you’re on the street, the suspension begins immediately and he’d be eligible to return in Week 6 if anyone will have him.

Moon Mullin says the Bears must improve their running game.  When you averaged 2.9 yards per carry, that seems fairly obvious.

Hub Arkush points out how we got more honest evaluation of his team from Marc Trestman in 2 minutes of his Monday presser than Lovie Smith gave us in 9 years.

It’s Wednesday, so under the new Bears schedule, we’ll hear from Mel Tucker, Joe DeCamillis, Marc Trestman and some players to be named later.  Stay tuned for more coverage throughout the day.

For all you Breaking Bad fans out there, “Have an A1 day!” and for all you BEARS fans out there…
