    Yep. Hageman keeps coming back to us like a recurring case of Herpes.

    Maybe he's supposed to be our guy. But Im not buying it.

    Emery has to have more smarts then that.

    Be that as it may in any scenerio ... at lest Emerys thinkin Defense : )

    Ya know what THE CHICAGO BEARS need ?

    A KNEE IN THE BALLS.

    A wakeup call.

    This going thru the paces hypnotic is getting old.

    I need a DEFENSIVE LINE and SAFETY SITUATION that KILLS PEOPLE ON CONTACT!

    Uhhh ... did we have anything other then this in mind ?

    When it comes to drafting TWO DEFENSIVE LINEMEN and TWO SAFETYS ...

    GIMME TWO !!

    Like I really need to be insulted by a BEARS team that was ranked 31.

    Man what the hell happened to us ?

    We ... WERE ... Monsters Of The Midway.

    This cannot stand in 2014 as has beens.

    Of course on the other hand ...

    The Chicago Bears' search to find a tall cornerback to eventually replace veteran Charles Tillman led the team’s Director of College Scouting Marty Barrett to attend the private Pro Day last month of Lindenwood’s Pierre Desir, according to a source present at the workout.

    In his latest mock draft, ESPN NFL Draft Analyst Mel Kiper Jr. projects the 6-foot-1, 198 pound Desir will be selected in the second round by the Philadelphia Eagles with the 54th overall pick. The Bears currently own the 51st overall selection.

    A relative unknown after spending two years at Washburn, followed by the two seasons at Lindenwood, Desir finished his college career with 25 total interceptions and 52 pass breakups en route to being named a Division II All-American three times.

    Desir participated in the East-West Shrine game, Senior Bowl, and was invited to the NFL combine in February.

    With Tillman back on a one-year deal, the Bears are believed to be leaning towards drafting a cornerback with a larger frame in the event Tillman leaves the organization after 2014. Since the club already has money and years locked up in undersized 5-foot-8 cornerback Tim Jennings, the Bears need to find a young cornerback big enough to one day matchup with the taller wide receivers in the NFC North, especially Detroit’s Calvin Johnson.

    In addition to Barrett and the Bears, four other NFL teams were present at Desir’s Pro Day on March 20.

    Before the SHUTDOWN when it all dissapears ... gotta have some laffs!
    ___________________________________________________

    GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Since 2010, when Julius Peppers arrived in Chicago, only two NFC North players have more sacks than him.

    One of them is now his teammate.

    That means the Green Bay Packers -- with the addition of Peppers -- have two of the top-three pass rushers in the division. Since Peppers' first season in the division, only Jared Allen, who left the Minnesota Vikings to sign with the Chicago Bears in free agency this offseason, has more sacks among NFC North players than Clay Matthews and his new teammate, Peppers.

    The partnership between Matthews and Peppers should be mutually beneficial...

    Old news. We knew that when Pep signed there. You didn't expect them to let us have all the FA fun did you. If all we're looking at is who got stronger on defense I'm gonna say we did. By far.

    That tag-team will make life difficult. No doubt about it.

    Just pointing out whats going on.



    If Peppers was so good we should have kept him.

    As an upgrade at DE we got the better deal.

    A Matthews -Peppers pass rush ... I dunno.

    I'm thinking that part of (most?) Peppers performance was due to how he was being used. Briggs kind of aluded to it early on. I don't think Peppers is done by any means, but we'll see. With my insistance that Carimi is a good lineman, I might have started a turd-defending trend but we'll see. I'm thinking that Peppers is still a very good player. What would make me mad if that was the case is that even if it was the way he was being used (scheme, Tucker, or both), you don;t pack it in. You are being paid to make a difference, and being paid handsomely at that. Even if you might think Tucker is incompetent, that does not give you the right to pack it in.

    We'll see. I hope he's done, but I suspect he's not.

    Hey im just suprised to see the boards still up and didnt eliminate anything.

    BIH,

    Its all about DEFENSE since 2013 ... has been since day one of 2014.

    Seattle said who we are , not for us to copy them but for them to copy us to copy them.

    And here we are. Seahawks didnt invent anything that we didnt already invent.

    We may have lost our way in the past ... but BEING CHICAGO BEARS ...

    DEFENSE is our fortitude. Its the defining character.

    Like I said I was suprised to see the switch over work without losing anything.

    So I put up all my posts at once.

    Hey talking it over with some BEARS fans and I came up with that mock above with taking

    Murry at QB with the fifth. Im not popular with the idea but felt it was worth posting.

    Democracy and all that. Anybody think taking a QB in the fifth is worth it ?

    According to multiple reports, the 49ers will play their regular season debut at Levi’s Stadium against an opponent which should be very, very happy to no longer have to set foot in Candlestick Park.

    The Bears will play in the first regular season game in the 49ers’ new home on September 14, Harry Teinowitz of 87.7 FM “The Game” in Chicago reported Wednesday.

    Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area also reported the 49ers would host Chicago in Week Two after playing at Dallas in Week One.

    The Bears lost their final six regular season games at Candlestick, and they were also soundly defeated in the 1994 divisional round at San Francisco.

    Chicago’s final regular season win in Candlestick — a game remembered for William “Refrigerator” Perry’s first turn as a running back — was way back in 1985.

    By Adam Hoge-

    (CBS) — We’ve known the Bears’ 2014 opponents since the end of last season, but we now know when all those games will be played.

    There are a number of quirks in this year’s slate, including:

    - The Bears will open at home for the fifth straight season. They are 4-0 in the last four years opening up at home. This will also be the third year in a row they open up at home against an AFC opponent.
    - The Bears are scheduled to play five primetime games in 2014. They were 4-1 in primetime last season.
    - The Bears will play their first Thanksgiving game since 2004 and first in Detroit since 1999.
    - That Thanksgiving game will be played on CBS, as part of new rules that allow select all-NFC games to be played on CBS and select all-AFC games to be played on FOX.
    - The Bears will play back-to-back Thursday games. A week after playing on Thanksgiving, the Bears will host the Cowboys on the NFL Network. The Cowboys, of course, will also be coming off their usual Thanksgiving game so both teams will have equal rest.
    - The Bears will play three straight home games in December.
    - For the second straight season, the Bears have no games scheduled in the Sunday late-afternoon time slot. Last year, they didn’t play a late-afternoon game until Week 17 when their game against the Packers was flexed from Noon seven days before kickoff.

    Here’s a game-by-game breakdown of the Bears’ 2014 schedule:

    Week 1: vs Buffalo Bills – Sunday, Sept. 7 – Noon – FOX
    Usually this game would be on CBS, but the NFL’s new “cross flex” scheduling rules puts this one on FOX.
    Last meeting: Nov. 7, 2010 – Bears 22, Bills 19 in Toronto
    Last meeting in Chicago: Oct. 10, 2006 – Bears 40, Bills 7
    Key additions: MLB Brandon Spikes, CB Corey Graham, OLB Keith Rivers, OG Chris Williams
    Key losses: S Jairus Byrd
    Outlook: The Bills gave former Bears Corey Graham and Chris Williams nearly $30 million combined, which tells you all you need to know about their offseason. This is a must-win game at home for the Bears.
    Way-too-early pick: Bears

    Week 2: at San Francisco 49ers – Sunday, Sept. 14 – 7:30 PM – NBC
    The Bears will be happy to help open Levi’s Stadium. They may even petition to help knock down Candlestick the night before the game.
    Last meeting: Nov. 12, 2012 – 49ers 32, Bears 7 in San Francisco
    Key additions: S Antoine Bethea
    Key losses: S Donte Whitner, RB Anthony Dixon, CB Carlos Rogers
    Outlook: Not only do the Bears never win in San Francisco, they usually get blown out. The good news? This one will be played in the 49ers’ new stadium in Santa Clara. NBC has to be drooling over this early-season matchup between two of the NFC’s best teams.
    Way-too-early pick: 49ers

    Week 3: at New York Jets – Monday, Sept. 22 – 7:30 PM – ESPN
    Back-to-back primetime games for the Bears, but they’ll get an extra day to prepare as they go coast-to-coast.
    Last meeting: Dec. 26, 2010 – Bears 38, Jets 34 in Chicago
    Last meeting in New Jersey: Nov. 19, 2006 – Bears 10, Jets 0
    Key additions: WR Eric Decker, RT Breno Giacomini, RB Chris Johnson, QB Michael Vick
    Key losses: OG Austin Howard, CB Antonio Cromartie, QB Mark Sanchez
    Outlook: Geno Smith or Michael Vick? Not sure the Bears will be worried about either.
    Way-too-early pick: Bears

    Week 4: vs Green Bay Packers – Sunday, Sept. 28 – Noon – FOX
    This is an NFC North tone setter for the Bears as they’ve lost four straight games to the Packers at home, including the 2010 NFC Championship Game.
    Last meeting in Chicago: Dec. 29, 2013 – Packers 33, Bears 28
    Key additions: DE Julius Peppers (Bears)
    Key losses: C Evan Dietrich-Smith, WR James Jones, RT Marshall Newhouse, S M.D. Jennings (Bears)
    Outlook: The Packers biggest additions always come via the draft and as long as Aaron Rodgers is under center, they’re the NFC North favorites until proven otherwise. That said, the gap is closing.
    Way-too-early pick: Bears

    Week 5: at Carolina Panthers – Sunday, Oct. 5 – Noon – FOX
    Ron Rivera thought he had the Bears beat at Soldier Field two years ago, but his team fell apart late.
    Last meeting: Oct. 28, 2012 – Bears 23, Panthers 22 in Chicago
    Last meeting in Carolina: Oct. 10, 2010 – Bears 23, Panthers 6
    Key additions: WR Jerricho Cotchery, S Roman Harper
    Key losses: WR Steve Smith, S Mike Mitchell, CB Captain Munnerlyn, WR Ted Ginn Jr., WR Brandon LaFell
    Outlook: In addition to losing so many receiving weapons, the Panthers also have Cam Newton recovering from an ankle injury. This is still a good team though and it’s a road game, so leaving Carolina with a win won’t be easy.
    Way-too-early pick: Panthers

    Week 6: at Atlanta Falcons – Sunday, Oct. 12 – Noon – FOX
    The Bears’ last two trips to Atlanta had brutal endings. Remember the pooch kick in 2008 and the red zone mistakes in 2009?
    Last meeting: Sept. 11, 2011 – Bears 30, Falcons 12 in Chicago
    Last meeting in Atlanta: Oct. 18, 2009 – Falcons 21, Bears 14
    Key additions: DT Paul Solai, DE Tyson Jackson, OG Jon Asamoah, KR Devin Hester
    Key losses: S Thomas DeCoud
    Outlook: The Falcons should be improved from last year’s disappointing season and the Bears’ special teams will be tested by Devin Hester on the turf.
    Way-too-early pick: Bears

    Week 7: vs Miami Dolphins – Sunday, Oct. 19 – Noon – CBS
    The last time the Dolphins came to Chicago, they won handily, but the Bears ended up in the Super Bowl.
    Last meeting: Nov. 18, 2010 – Bears 16, Bills 0 in Miami
    Last meeting in Chicago: Nov. 5, 2006 – Dolphins 31, Bears 13
    Key additions: LT Branden Albert, DT Earl Mitchell, CB Cortland Finnegan, RB Knowshon Moreno
    Key losses: DT Paul Solai, S Chris Clemons
    Outlook: The Dolphins nearly made the playoffs last year despite the Richie Incognito drama and they’ll be a tough opponent again in 2014. This is one the Bears should win at home though.
    Way-too-early pick: Bears

    Week 8: at New England Patriots – Sunday, Oct. 26 – Noon – FOX
    Trip to Foxboro concludes first-half stretch that includes five road games, three of which are against 2013 playoff teams.
    Last meeting: Dec. 12, 2010 – Patriots 36, Bears 7 in Chicago
    Last meeting in New England: Nov. 26, 2006 – Patriots 17, Bears 13
    Key additions: CB Brandon Browner, CB Darrelle Revis, WR Brandon LaFell
    Key losses: CB Aqib Talib, RB LaGarrette Blount, LB Brandon Spikes
    Outlook: The Patriots lost Aqib Talib and somehow got better at corner. This is one of the Bears’ hardest games of the year and it would be hard to count on a victory.
    Way-too-early pick: Patriots

    Week 9: BYE
    Never hurts to have the bye week come right in the middle of the season.

    Week 10: at Green Bay Packers – Sunday, Nov. 9 – 7:30 – NBC
    This will mark the fourth year in a row (and fifth time in the last six years) the Bears’ trip to Green Bay will be played in primetime.
    Last meeting in Green Bay: Nov. 4, 2013 – Bears 27, Packers 20
    Key additions: DE Julius Peppers (Bears)
    Key losses: C Evan Dietrich-Smith, WR James Jones, RT Marshall Newhouse, S M.D. Jennings (Bears)
    Outlook: Last year’s win at Lambeau wouldn’t have happened if Aaron Rodgers didn’t get hurt on the first series of the game. The Bears can win without that happening again, but they’ll be the underdogs.
    Way-too-early pick: Packers

    Week 11: vs Minnesota Vikings – Sunday, Nov. 16 – Noon – FOX
    The Bears’ defense really struggled against the Vikings last year, despite Minnesota’s generally awful quarterback play.
    Last meeting in Chicago: Sept. 15, 2013 – Bears 31, Vikings 30
    Key additions: Head coach Mike Zimmer, DT Linval Joseph, CB Captain Munnerlyn, DT Corey Wootton (Bears)
    Key losses: DE Jared Allen (Bears), RB Toby Gerhart
    Outlook: The Vikings’ defense should take a step forward with Mike Zimmer, but this is still a team without a quarterback, which puts them behind the three other teams in the NFC North.
    Way-too-early pick: Bears

    Week 12: vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Sunday, Nov. 23 – Noon – FOX
    Lovie Smith and Josh McCown return to Chicago in what will locally be one of the most anticipated games of the year.
    Last meeting: Oct. 23, 2011 – Bears 24, Buccaneers 18 in London
    Last meeting in Chicago: Sept. 21, 2008 – Buccaneers 27, Bears 24
    Key additions: Head coach Lovie Smith, CB Alterraun Verner, DE Michael Johnson, QB Josh McCown (Bears), C Evan Dietrich-Smith
    Key losses: CB Darrelle Revis, FB Erik Lorig
    Outlook: It will be interesting to see if Josh McCown is actually the Bucs’ starting quarterback when this game comes around, but there’s a chance he’ll go head-to-head against his good friend Jay Cutler. Tampa made some great offseason signings and still have the draft to improve even more, but with this game being played at Soldier Field, it’s still one the Bears should win.
    Way-too-early pick: Bears

    Week 13: at Detroit Lions – Thursday, Nov. 27 (Thanksgiving) – 11:30 AM – CBS
    The Lions were expected to host either the Dolphins or Bills on Thanksgiving, but the new “cross flex” scheduling gave CBS a much better matchup.
    Last meeting in Detroit: Sept. 29, 2013 – Lions 40, Bears 32
    Key additions: Head coach Jim Caldwell, WR Golden Tate, S James Ihedigbo
    Key losses: DE Willie Young (Bears), WR Nate Burleson
    Outlook: Detroit has become a harder place to leave with a win in recent years and this season will be no different.
    Way-too-early pick: Lions

    Week 14: vs Dallas Cowboys – Thursday, Dec. 4 – 7:25 PM – NFL Network
    The Bears and Cowboys meet for the third year in a row and fourth time in the last five years.
    Last meeting: Dec. 9, 2013 – Bears 45, Cowboys 28 in Chicago
    Key additions: DT Henry Melton (Bears), DT Terrell McClain, QB Brandon Weeden
    Key losses: DE DeMarcus Ware, DT Jason Hatcher
    Outlook: The Cowboys haven’t had a great offseason thus far and need a good draft next month. Considering what the Bears did to these guys at Soldier Field last year, you would think they’d handle them this season, but that’s not always how it works out in the NFL.
    Way-too-early pick: Bears

    Week 15: vs New Orleans Saints – Monday, Dec. 15 – 7:30 PM – ESPN
    The Bears get 10 days to prepare for their third consecutive nationally televised game.
    Last meeting: Oct. 6, 2013 – Saints 26, Bears 18 in Chicago
    Key additions: S Jairus Byrd, FB Erik Lorig, CB Champ Bailey
    Key losses: RB Darren Sproles, S Roman Harper, DE Will Smith, CB Malcolm Jenkins, LB Jonathan Vilma, C Brian de la Puente (Bears).
    Outlook: The Saints’ revamped defense caused the Bears problems at Soldier Field last year, while Drew Brees completed 82.9 percent of his passes and Jimmy Graham caught 10 passes for 135 yards. New Orleans should be just as good this season and the Bears’ chances of winning this game will probably depend on their defensive upgrades. If the new pass rushers can get after the Brees, the Bears can win.
    Way-too-early pick: Saints

    Week 16: vs Detroit Lions – Sunday, Dec. 21 – Noon – FOX
    The home finale is also the first of two huge divisional games to end the season.
    Last meeting in Chicago: Nov. 10, 2013 – Lions 21, Bears 19
    Key additions: Head coach Jim Caldwell, WR Golden Tate, S James Ihedigbo
    Key losses: DE Willie Young (Bears), WR Nate Burleson
    Outlook: The Bears lost to the Lions twice last season, which is pretty much unacceptable at Halas Hall. Detroit should have won the NFC North in 2013 and figure to be a smarter team in 2014 under Jim Caldwell.
    Way-too-early pick: Bears

    Week 17: at Minnesota Vikings – Sunday, Dec. 28 – Noon – FOX
    A heated field is currently being installed at TCF Bank Stadium for late-December games like these.
    Last meeting in Minnesota: Dec. 1, 2013 – Vikings 23, Bears 20
    Key additions: Head coach Mike Zimmer, DT Linval Joseph, CB Captain Munnerlyn, DT Corey Wootton (Bears)
    Key losses: DE Jared Allen (Bears), RB Toby Gerhart
    Outlook: The Bears won the last meeting between these two teams at TCF Bank Stadium and as long as they aren’t kicking field goals on second down, they should win this one too.
    Way-too-early pick: Bears

    Way-too-early projected record: 10-6
