We need to have a breakthrough in the passing game this year.
All pass catchers, from the wideouts to the fullbacks need to be focused on first securing the ball when it comes their way, then holding onto it ferociously while fighting for every inch.
Hopefully the defense can get it together.
The wait is almost over.

The Bears passing game can be fixed with the players that are on the current roster. I am a firm believer that speed kills. If I were running things I would line up Hester and Knox out wide and put Olsen in the slot since he is a receiver more so than a tightend; with those 2 guys out wide opposing defenses wouldn't know whether to $hit or go blind. Olsen would catch 80 balls easily for the season.

I have absolutely no faith that Devin Hester will ever be a true #1 WR. While learning a new position can be a challenge, he has shown little to no brain power since he's joined the Bears. I really hope I'm wrong here, but I have a feeling I'm not.

The article says Tommie Harris will not be held out of practice. Sure hope it stays that way but I bet a buck he is held out before Day 5 arrives.

1# receiver?? How about a decent #2. Hester is a kick returner. When he is the focus of your receiving core, then it means you don't have a receiver core. Would it have killed the Bears to sign a proven receiver??

Well trolls, we will see just how well the vaunted Falcons defense does with Hester, et al. come 18 October.

Hopefully I will be there rooting the Bears on to a drubbing of the home team.

Atlanta went out and got Tony Gonzalez for a second round draft pick. Me, I'm smarter than that. I got nothing for nothing and have a hand full of empty to show for it. Enjoy 3 and out folks.

Apparently Angelo thinks it's unnecessary. Wait until the 2nd exhibition game and the proverbial shyte will hit the fan once Lovie comes out of his usual daze and realizes they are S C R E W E D!

"It was cool," Cutler said. "I came away really impressed with the guy. Every single person he met, he was on top of it and knew a little something about that person."

...J. Cutler is not the brightess bulb, is he?
Of course the President of the United States
is going to know "a little something" about you.
He has advisors to inform him with "little somethings"
about every person he meets.

Go Denver!:)

How would anyone know what Devin Hester actually said? When he speaks he mumbles. He can't pronounce his words correctly. His primary language is ebonics.

He maybe alongise Allen Iverson, the most ignorant example of an athlete to ever meet a microphone.
