I also happen to write for Windy City Gridiron (Chicago Bears Football). I'm rather annoying.
After drafting Shea McClellin, who projected to be a 3-4 outside linebacker, Lovie Smith and the Chicago Bears find unorthodox ways to use McClellin in Lovie's quest to confuse offenses.
Kay Paradiso breaks down a couple aspects of the Chicago Bears Nickel defense and why players like Brandon Hardin are the new mold of NFL safeties.
At 1-1, is it reasonable for the Bears fans to be worried about the direction their team is heading?
Cutler's 'Night Blindness' Diabetic retinopathy (the most common visual issue in diabetics), which can cause night vision issues, takes years of consistently high blood sugar to start to cause problem. It come from slowly developing vascular changes in the retina in response to chronically elevated sugar levels. There are sometimes acute visual problems if your blood sugar spikes and causes increased pressure in the eye (glaucoma), but that causes blurry vision and is reversible. Cuter has type I diabetes (autoimmune destruction of of his insulin-producing cells), not type II (insulin resistance from too much fat tissue), even though it was first diagnosed as an adult. He also has amazing care and control of his sugar levels (he can afford the best medical care available). It has been reported that he gets his blood sugar checked during that game itself, sometimes as often as after every series, with correcting action taken if necessary (drink some juice if low, take a shot of insulin if high). His sugar levels may even be more regulated than us non-diabetics due to the frequency of monitoring he goes through. As long as Cutler and his team doctors are vigilant (and there’s no reason to believe they aren’t), diabetes will never be a problem for him during his playing career. It was before it was diagnosed, and it may 20 years after he retires (if he’s not careful about controlling his sugar), but not now.via AKN, WCG's resident Doctor
Gentle reminders for Chicago Bears fans everywhere, one bad game does not make a season. The Green Bay Packers felt that way last week, now it's our turn.
Afternoon fine folks of BBV. As I've patiently waited the 24 hours to post this piece of information, I'd like to share a few thoughts i've come up with in that time. 1) I'm bummed not to see JPP...
J'Marcus Webb is often touted as the NFL's worst starting left tackle by a wide margin, but, that margin may not be as wide as portrayed in the passing game. AQ investigates a few left tackles from around the league and some of their struggles.
Is the Bears window for success tied to their aging defense? Check out this recent post as we spotlight the thoughts of one of our Windy City Gridiron members.
So, every year (except for last) I've looked at some gamefilm of some DE's that are being tossed around in the next draft. It's basically draft time is my favorite time of the football season...

Offensive lines take time to develop. Yep. You could have Mike Tice in there, working as hard as he can to develop these under-performing linemen... and not see any results this year, maybe not...
