Links From Around the Bears

| August 17th, 2011

I’m not usually a big links posting guy but there’s some interesting stuff out there worth paying attention to.

MOON MULLIN is predicting the Bears repeat as NFC North champs with a record of 10-6.  I see them with a similar record but how can anyone predict whether that’ll be enough to win division/make playoffs.

LANCE LOUIS left practice Wednesday due to vomiting all over the field and Chris Spencer lined up at center this afternoon due to it.  Last night he was lined up at guard in pass protection drills.  I don’t believe for a second that Spencer was brought here to provide OL depth.  He was brought here to play center.  And it’s going to happen before too long.

ANY PLAYER CONNECTION TO “THE U” is going to be asked to comment on the allegations that have folks recalling the SMU death penalty.  Devin Hester is no exception.  Whatever Hester did while down in Coral Gables, I don’t care.  I’m not stupid enough to believe any Division I university’s athletics program is on the level and you shouldn’t be either.

ROY WILLIAMS WANTS TO BE THE MAN.  And I would love him to be the man, even if it remains he starts to pull a little prima donna receiver shit off the top shelf.  Seeing a rapport between Roy and Cutty will be perhaps the only offensive plays of interest this preseason outside the work of the fellas up front.

SEAN JENSEN’S TWITTER ACCOUNT featured these back-to-back posts:

Caplan reports #Bears put in a claim RT @caplannfl: LB Thadedeus Gibson, who was waived by the 49ers, was claimed by the Redskins.

As I’ve said before, I still believe linebacker is one of the positions the #Bears are more inclined to make an addition at.

So…can someone out there explain to me why Lofa Tatupu is not already a Chicago Bear?  Is he not in football shape?  Tatupu is capable, when healthy, of being an elite linebacker.
