    If Trestman/Kromer see ANYTHING in ANY O player, they should be given the benefit of the doubt by the fanbase. Wanna question Tucker I get that, but it shouldn't happen either b/c again, Trestman should be given a pass until proven otherwise.

    Trestman/Kromer think Fales can push for a roster spot and maybe the backup role, who the hell are any of us to question it. Do we all remember that McCown was a laughing stock/out of the league HS coach before Trestman? Even if he isn't a miracle worker(McCown proved he is) then he's still proven he's a great talent evaluator.

    I agree, and IMHO, it's okay for fans to get excited about these guys even if they're long shots. Hey, that's part of the fun for fans this time of the year. This time of year it's also fun to get excited about all of the possibilities of a new season. I do feel like the final 53 this year should be pretty solid talent, and certainly better than what we had last season. I hope so anyway :smile:

    Notebook: Bears rookie minicamp, Day Two

    By ARTHUR ARKUSH - aarkush@chicagofootball.com - Saturday, May 17, 2014 5:42 p.m. CDT
    LAKE FOREST — The Bears moved practice outdoors Saturday, their second of three nearly two-hour sessions this weekend with 66 rookies and first-year players on hand.
    Former NIU QB Jordan Lynch has impressed as a tailback but ventured further outside of his comfort zone Saturday, working on kickoff teams – as well as fielding punts after practice.
    He can’t recall the last time he was asked to try and tackle someone – and that won’t happen this weekend – but Lynch stressed the importance of learning the fundamentals.
    “I’m taking individual drills really serious, just trying to learn the technique and the proper way to hit,” he said.
    Lynch acknowledged one of the few things in his control is his effort.
    “I’m trying to hustle – never walking,” he said. Always trying to be the first one doing everything, and I feel like that is one way I can stand out.”
    In his quest to earn a spot in the running back stable, Lynch will have to prove he can block as well as play special teams. A lot of that comes with willingness – something Marc Trestman has little doubt Lynch possesses.
    Offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer talked about the suddenness needed as a blocker and overall run instincts required for the position. “When you see a guy that’s a natural runner and has some violence or some suddenness — when I say violence, I mean suddenness,” Kromer said, “he’s quick from stop to start. That guy can usually learn to pass protect very well.
    “Lynch out here so far has played tailback the entire time and is showing that he has instincts running. You could see he had instincts on tape running the football. … But he has natural vision and good feet. He’ll just have to adapt and adjust to getting the ball in a different area.”
    A few other observations from Saturday at Bears rookie minicamp:
    • After spending his first season with the Bears as offensive coordinator and offensive line coach, Kromer is now strictly the offensive coordinator. He said it’s nice to have a broader focus, but new offensive line coach Pat Meyer is really the one who received a promotion.
    “Sometimes an offensive line coach can get pigeon-holed into just doing that job. I’ve made it a point throughout the years to make sure I didn’t. Although the title changed, I was already working in some of that capacity. It’s more of a promotion for Pat than anything.”
    • Kromer is excited about returning the same five starters along the offensive line and building continuity, something the unit has sorely lacked in recent seasons. That means Jordan Mills, at least initially, won't face competition at right tackle. Additionally, Roberto Garza will be backed up by free-agent acquisition Brian de da Puente.
    “We feel good about our positions where we are right now with our starting line,” he said. “But at no time is anyone granted the position or they walk in and say, ‘This is my position until the end of time.’ If they start playing poorly, they’ll be replaced by someone that’s playing better than them.”
    • RB Ka’Deem Carey continued his impressive minicamp, taking a short toss and quickly getting upfield, where he was followed by a hustling Trestman to congratulate him. “ When he sees a hole, he’s able to get north,” said Kromer. “That’s what Ka’Deem Carey can do. He’s a North and South runner. He’s gaining yards and that’s what we like about Ka’Deem, he makes a cut, and he gains yards. That’s what we’re looking for. I m glad, me personally, and I don’t know about the scouts and how they evaluated Ka’Deem, but I’m glad I watched the tape before I found out he ran a 4.7, because I didn’t see a 4.7 on tape.”
    • First-year CB Demontre Hurst again was noticeably active on Saturday, intercepting a pass, his second takeaway of the weekend.
    • Will Sutton continues to find his way into the backfield, much to the delight of D-line coach Paul Pasqualoni. Sutton and second-round defensive tackle Ego Ferguson were lauded by Trestman for hustling downfield as well.
    • In addition to the media and a select group of fans, Ex-Bears LB Wilber Marshall observed practice on the sidelines.

    Rookie minicamp day 2 notes - Larry Mayer: O'Donnell shows strong leg; Fales "looked the part" according to Trestman; Mel Tucker reiterates that defensive scheme would sport new wrinkles in 2014.
    Mel Tucker revisualizes retooled Bears defense - Brad Biggs: There will be lots of changes in scheme and personnel in 2014, but biggest challenge will be getting best out of players in evolving roles.

    Bears 2014 Rookie Minicamp, day 2
    [Video] ChicagoBears.com - Marc Trestman addresses the media Saturday to discuss Aaron Kromer's transition to OC and what he is looking for during Rookie Minicamp.
    Fales to push for No. 2 job, eventually - Larry Mayer: The Bears hope that rookie QB David Fales ultimately will push Jordan Palmer for the backup position behind Jay Cutler, but the sixth-round pick has miles to go. Dan Wiederer: Fales demonstrates he's a quick study.
    No. 2 QB job Palmer's to lose - Jeff Dickerson: Jordan Palmer, Jerrod Johnson and David Fales are essentially battling for two open roster spots, with Palmer receiving the first shot to serve as the primary backup. Arthur Arkush: Fales, Johnson doing all they can to force their way into the conversation.
    [Video] ChicagoBears.com - Aaron Kromer addresses the media from Halas Hall Saturday to discuss the evolution of the Bears offense in his second year.
    Team notes - Moon Mullin's odds and ends from Bears minicamp Day 2: Brock Vereen, Jordan Lynch and, in particular, Ka’Deem Carey showing up; ST coaches invoking Hester's name to inject some instant tension into kick-coverage drill.
    Team notes - Arthur Arkush with observations from Saturday at Bears rookie minicamp: Ka’Deem Carey, Demontre Hurst, Ego Ferguson and, in particular, Will Sutton making themselves noticed. Bob LeGere: Bears think Carey will be perfect backup for Forte.
    Lynch trying to break out of comfort zone - Adam Hoge: The Bears may have ideas on how to work the QB-turned-RB into the offense, but those ideas won’t matter if Lynch can’t contribute on Joe DeCamillis’ unit. Moon Mullin: Needs one other key skill set to make roster.
    [Video] ChicagoBears.com - Joe DeCamillis addressed the media Saturday at Halas Hall to discuss the punter competition and the changes on special teams.
    Christian Jones grateful for opportunity - Jeff Dickerson: Bears hope to have found a steal in Florida State UDFA who has moved well when lined up on special teams and at SLB.
    Is Cinderella at Bears' rookie minicamp? - Hub Arkush: Each of the 38 tryouts hope to show enough this weekend to steal a spot on the Bears' 90-man roster and a trip to Bourbonnais in July; TE Dustin Greenwell might be the forerunner.
    ----------
    Bearsss
    Patrick Mannelly's future unknown - Jeff Dickerson: "I’ve been in contact with Pat and there is no pressure one way or the other," DeCamillis said. "I don’t [have a sense which way he’s leaning]. I just hope it’s the best situation for him."
    McClellin impresses new LB coach - Brad Biggs: Reggie Herring scouted McClellin and was in Houston last summer when the Texans tried to swing a trade for him; calls him a 'good, instinctive player'.
    Sun-Times Bears section here.
    ----------
    Polish sausage
    Ex-Bear news - Aaron Wilson: Panthers try out J'Marcus Webb, who previously visited the Kansas City Chiefs during free agency.
    Know thy enemy: Lions - Michael Rothstein: Versatility will be key for Lions' second-round draft pick, LB Kyle Van Noy.
    Know thy enemy: Packers - Rob Demovsky: Packers mulling decision on whether to sign UDFA tryout TE Colt Lyerla. [OMG Phil Y U no sign him our 2014 season is over! - Den]
    Know thy enemy: Vikings - Russ Lande: RBs who cannot play on third down have a hard time carving out long NFL careers, unless they become dominant runners, and in that regard converted QB Jerick McKinnon was a reach in the 3rd round of the draft.

    I know he is a head case but if the Packers get him and he turns out to be a model citizen we could be on the verge of a major miss. Likewise if he screws up we did it right, hope Emery has dotted his "I's" and crossed his "T's" on this kid. Not sure if anyone else noticed but on the thread with Mock draft predictions before the season Lyerla was in the first round. I really hoped with our veterans and K. Long we would take a shot on this kid. I know, lots of flags but a good baller.
