    Lets remember that the D is way ahead of the O right now. The D has the same scheme and personnel except for Urlacher and Roach being gone. The O, OL esp, is learning an all new scheme and play book with a lot of new faces and positions. The OL is going to struggle big time at this point. Bushrod is the only one who knows Kromer and he's sitting out right now.

    lots of nick nack injuries early I would bet if it was in season injuries you play through those--some guys getting a shot cause of these injuries I wonder if any of them make a lasting impression to make the team

    thanks ric for all the updates

    areas Im liking is dline, wrs, rb, dbs, qb from camp so far

    looks like Slaussen is LG or nothing on this team.

    The defense ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYSx6, according to Trestman and other NFL minds, beats the offense early in training camp. Injuries (see previous sentence) happen this time of year, of various degrees. Not that anyone's freaking out about it now, but, thanks to twitter, non-news is now news. Give it time, and we'll see the rough edges getting rounded down. On a similar note, I can't wait to see the overreaction to preseason on how bad our offense or defense is. I have a feeling I'll be repeating "The 2008 Lions went 4-0 and the '85 Bears went 1-3 in preseason" a lot.

    Henry, seriously no one worries about WINNING in the pre season, it's about how well they PERFORM, is the OL getting rocked? Is Cutler throwing picks? Are the TE's actually able to catch passes? Are the DB's and LB's playing up to par w/last year?

    It's not about winning or losing in the pre, it's about how the team looks.

    Chicago Bears Training Camp: Day 5 Recap

    The Chicago Bears took yesterday off, -- How dare they? -- but they are back at it today, and we'll recap the days festivities with a little help from Twitter.
    Tweet Share 6 Comments
    After reporting last Thursday, Camp Trestman is now seven days old, but that 1st day was just a conditioning test, so technically camp is six days old, and since there was no practice yesterday, this is only the 5th day of practice. Got it?
    It was a rainy morning in Bourbonnais, so the players had to deal with some footing issues.
    Cornerback Tim Jennings was excused from practice for personal reasons, and Zach Bowman filled in across from Charles Tillman.
    Wide out Brandon Marshall and defensive end Cheta Ozougwu were both back at practice, but left tackle Jermon Bushrod was held out. Bushrod was still in a walking boot to protect his strained calf. On Monday, it was Jonathon Scott filling in at LT, but today it was Cory Brandon and Eben Britton filling in with the ones.
    Scott and defensive lineman Jamaal Anderson were both nursing sore knees.
    In other injury news, linebacker D.J. Williams has a calf injury, and receives the "week to week" designation. His calf injury is worse than Bushrod's, so rookie Jonathan Bostic will get some extended action with the starters.
    The offense was being tweeted about today during practice, as they worked on some Red Zone stuff. OMG The Defense is showing it's age!

    Marshall gets up slowly after a TD grab. Sits out a play and comes right back in.

    LM: Alshon Jeffery leaps high to catch a touchdown pass from Jay Cutler in back of end zone just out of reach of Major Wright.

    Marshall keeps making tough, physical grabs in training camp. No wonder coaches trying to take it easy with him.

    Deep sideline pass from Jay Cutler to Earl Bennett beats coverage and goes for TD. #Bears

    Look at that nice clean pocket!

    #Bears QB Jay Cutler on players buying in: "Everyone has bought in. 100 percent." So that process only took a week.

    Trestman says #Bears will "keep things very vanilla" heading into first preseason game #BearsTalk

    The defense had some positive moments as well.
    Shea McClellin with a nifty spin move around J'Marcus Webb in 2on2's. #Bears 2012 first round pick has looked good so far every day at camp

    Sherrick McManis picks off Josh McCown in 2nd team action
    — Brad Biggs (@BradBiggs) July 31, 2013
    No reason to be concerned about Tim Jennings. But his temporary absence did allow Zack Bowman to get his reps. Bowman has made several plays
    — Jeff Dickerson (@ESPNChiBears) July 31, 2013
    Corey Wootton lined up inside just blew past Kyle Long.
    — Jeff Dickerson (@ESPNChiBears) July 31, 2013
    Here's some Devin Hester stuff we missed from training camp so far.
    Devin Hester almost blocked a kick moments ago. It's a new era watching Hester as more than just a return man on special teams.

    DeCamillis on Devin Hester: "His attitude has been great."

    What has caught your eye so far about Training Camp?

    Bostic needs to step up and show some flash otherwise they might be signing another MLB off the street.

    ESPN just had some talk about todays practice and what was said was there were WAY to many balls on the ground to run a WCO. The O needs to start getting sharper.

    It's not the winning, per se. Every year, this board goes into preseason knowing it's just going to be "vanilla plays", yet goes absolutely spastic when the defense isn't winning one on one matchups, or when the wide receivers play horribly, or if the d-line or o-line doesn't perform to snuff. People tend to view the preseason as a "preview", rather than getting the repetitions and getting used to play beside one another, within their various schemes.

    so if you know it's not about winning why bring up the pre season record? Again winning and losing in the pre season have nothing to do w/how the team played.

    Ya when you see a section or players not performing well there is cause for concern. It is a preview of how that group will do. Doesn't mean it won't get better but it is one. If Cutler has to be pulled 2-3 plays into the 3rd pre season game to save him from the OL ya that's a preview and reason for concern.

    preseason is basically just a $$$ scheme for teams forcing season ticket holders into buying that crap at regular price.

    the core of this team is set all preseason is going to do is get our roster down to 55, fill out practice squad, and hide extra talent on IR if necessary
