Chicago Bears Run Defense Will Stiffen With Each Test

Hailed as the greatest weakness of the Chicago Bears, the run defense is getting tested (and shaped) in the first half of the 2014 season.
New York Jets and Chris Ivory Latest Of Many Run-First Opponents
It seemed like the worst-case scenario for the Bears.  A team that finished the 2013 season giving up 160 yards per game on the ground would begin their 2014 campaign against a bevy of opponents known for their ability to run the ball.  Buffalo ranked second last season.  San Francisco was right behind them in 3rd place.  Now Chicago must travel east to deal with the New York Jets.  Headlined by trade acquisition Chris Ivory, they finished the regular season 6th in the league with 134 yards per game.  Through two games their top three running backs have collectively averaged 4.6 yards per carry.
To the casual fan who remembers what they saw last season, it may seem like an insurmountable task.  After giving up 193 yards to Buffalo in the opener, how can the Bears possibly hope to do anything about the

Marshall addresses media about domestic violence allegations

Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who is the latest NFL player being accused of domestic violence, came out firing in a press conference from the team’s practice facility on Thursday afternoon. As you can imagine, the results were pretty interesting in what was a long-winded session with the media. Marshall addressed the accusations that have been thrown his way by an ex-girlfriend Rasheedah Watley and her lawyer Gloria Allred stemming from an incident that took place back in March of 2007.

Chicago Bears not on hot seat, but several Super Bowl contenders are

It doesn’t take long for the pressure to mount in the NFL. Just two games into the 2014 season, plenty of people find themselves under the microscope, trying to answer questions about their most-recent performance.
Who is in that spot? Here are five on the hot seat this weekend:
***
5. Peyton Manning
Manning’s last game against Seattle wasn’t pretty
The Broncos quarterback is off to a fine starting, having thrown six touchdowns and zero interceptions through the first two games. But this Sunday, he and his teammates travel to Seattle to take on a Seahawks team that derailed the greatest offense in NFL history during Super Bowl XLVIII. Manning needs to prove that he can perform at a high level against the league’s best defense, especially after Philip Rivers showed that it’s possible.
Heat Index: 3 – This week is more about building confidence, but that could prove vital down the stretch for Denver

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffrey Latest Player to Make Stock Deal With Fantex

On draft day Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffrey was among the firstr three receivers taken in just about every league in existance (or the ones not full of idiots at least). Should he have a year similar to last season’s breakout campaign (89 receptions, 1421 yards, seven touchdowns) he is going to help a number of people win their leagues.If you buy stock in him when he signs his monster contract in the off-season he could help you make a decent chunk of change too.@corkgaines/TwitterRead more »

More Awesome Jay Cutler GIFs

Jay Cutler is the center of attention on the Chicago Bears, and it’s been like that since he’s stepped into the Windy City. That being said, he makes us laugh. There’s something about Cutler’s personality and demeanor that’s just hilarious, so we bring you these GIFs to let his personality shine through.
Presenting, more awesome Jay Cutler GIFs.
Cutler lays a stiff-arm on a Vikings DB while casually running out of bounds… and of course, Cutler throws the ball at him just so he knows he’s a puss.

Phil Emery: Chicago Bears To Provide “Full Support” To Brandon Marshall

In light of the recent comments made by attorney Gloria Allred regarding Brandon Marshall’s past, Phil Emery said Marshall has the “full support of the Chicago Bears,” according to a report. Allegations were made by Allred accusing the NFL of ignoring Marshall’s domestic violence incidents back in 2007 and 2008.
“The Denver Broncos had knowledge of Brandon Marshall’s abusive behavior toward our daughter for over 2 1/2 years. In fact, I was contacted by the staff of the Denver Broncos over 1 1/2 years ago about an abusive incident by Brandon Marshall against our daughter Rasheedah, an incident that I had no knowledge of. I was asked by this staff member to give Mr. Marshall another chance, that he would be able to change. He did change; he became more abusive. I told commissioner Goodell that I had been in contact with the Broncos staff throughout this whole nasty affair in hopes that the Broncos would step in and help our daughter in this situation.” – Allred

Chicago Bears Add Possible Gem to Practice Squad

With injuries piling up, the Chicago Bears have made tweaks to their roster, including some new faces on the practice squad.
Blake Annen – TE
One area of the roster that continues to be largely a one-man show for Chicago is tight end.  They have a really good starter in Martellus Bennett, but the depth chart behind him hasn’t provided much beyond blocking and special teams help.  That doesn’t figure to change right away, but it may sooner than believed.  That is because of the addition of Blake Annen.
The 23-year old rookie out of Cincinnati comes from a program known for producing tight ends.  After going undrafted, he signed on in Philadelphia but wasn’t able to make the team given their already solid lineup at the position.  Annen is primarily viewed as a capable blocker but the potential goes beyond that.  At 6’4″, 250 lbs Annen showcased 4.41/40 speed at his pro day in May.  That kind of burst is rare for a tight end, but his limited production during his senior year gave teams pause.

Gloria Allred: NFL Ignored Victim Who Accused Brandon Marshall Of Domestic Violence

Brandon Marshall’s domestic violence allegations are back in the spotlight. Celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred held a press conference Wednesday afternoon in Atlanta where she blasted the NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell for their mishandling of domestic-violence cases, and specifically for ignoring previous complaints filed against Marshall dating back to 2006. Allred appeared with a friend of and the father of Rasheedah Watley, the ex-girlfriend of the now-Chicago Bears wide receiver who accused him of abusing her. The three claimed that Watley reached out to Goodell and the NFL on numerous occasions about an incident involving Marshall, but was ignored every time. In 2008, Marshall was suspended three games for violating the league’s personal conduct policy, but the suspension was later reduced to one game. Marshall denied ever abusing Watley in an interview on “Outside the Lines” in 2009. No new allegations were made Wednesday against Marshall, but Allred said she would write to t…

Chicago Bears: A look at Charles Tillman’s career and how he will be replaced

The Chicago Bears announced Charles Tillman will be placed on season-ending injured reserve after he tore his triceps for the second straight season. This isn’t what fans wanted to hear as they adore Tillman not only as a player but also as a person. NFL reporters and players tweeted out nothing but kind words for Tillman.
Zach Zaidman, Bears sideline reporter, had this to say.
If you truly love football, you love it because of players who play the way #Bears CB Charles Tillman plays.

Brandon Marshall calls out ESPN for misleading him

Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall was once considered what was wrong about the National Football League. During his days with the Denver Broncos, the Pro Bowl receiver had multiple issues with the team and was viewed as a cancer within the organization.  Marshall had also been accused of domestic violence earlier in his NFL playing career. The now model citizen was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder back in 2011 and has been an advocate for mental health awareness ever since. Unfortunately, ESPN apparently misled Marshall into believing that a recent interview with him would focus less on his past as someone that was accused of domestic violence and more on other aspects of his life and playing career. At least that’s the way Marshall read it. @E60 is running a piece on me tonight that they lied to me about. It was suppose to be a story on a camp. They followed me around 2 years — Machine Marshall (@BMarshall) September 16, 2014 Ago and at the end put a camera in my face to talk
