Fine for What?

The No Fun League (NFL) is back at it again, this time fining linebacker Jon Bostic $21,000 for wonderful hit on a “defenseless receiver” that did not look that defenseless at all. But the hit that Jon Bostic placed on Willis during the Chargers-Bears game last Thursday looked totally legal and did not receive a penalty. This hit has caused Jon Bostic, WHO has receieved his first game check, around $21,000. At the time of the hit, everybody thought it absolutely was an honest clean play. But days later the NFL seems to think otherwise.

Our Chicago Bears Blog has a new home

Our Bears Blog Home page has a home. We are excited to officially merge with Team-Superstore.com today. Click here for our new Bears Blog Home Page.

It looks like Chicago Bear great Brian Urlacher will not be with the team in 2013. He may be getting older in age which can affect his play on the field but in him they lose veteran leadership that is transferbale to both sides of the ball. The team should be able to bounce back from the loss of Urlacher and I predict they will be a playoff team in 2013. They have made crucial additions on both sides of the ball this off-season. On the offensive side they have signed Tight-End Martellus Bennett and Offensive-Tackle Jermon Bushrod. Bushrod should help an offensive line that struggle to protect Jay Cutler all season and with impact receiver Brandon Marshall receiving attention from defenses the field will be opened up for Bennett to make big plays.

On the defensive side of the ball the Bears signed Line-Backer DJ Williams and Safetey Tom Zbikowski, both players will help cover the middle of the field. Chicago Bears 2014 SuperBowl XLVIII Champions? We’ll have to wait and see but the team seems as though it is getting ready to make a legitimate run.

Tips for betting on the NFL

While it might seem that few people outside of the US know much about NFL betting – partly due to the fact that there is pretty limited coverage of the league outside of America – in fact people choose to bet on the various issues involved from all different countries. You can choose to bet on individual matches, the winners of the AFC or NFC, the winners of the Super Bowl, or the teams to reach the play-offs, but there are ways of improving your chances of success.
Firstly, like with other forms of sports betting, it is really useful to know something about the NFL before starting, whether you watch the matches or simply study up online. It is highly advisable to keep up with current form, injuries, and odds for the teams in order to be able to make informed bets. Beyond this, you need to decide whether you want to bet on one of the hot favourites, or whether you want to take a risk on a longer odds bet in the hopes of securing a bigger payout, and many NFL betting fans opt to bet on a side outside of the firm favourites, but still in with a realistic chance. An example of this would be last season’s Super Bowl winners, the Baltimore Ravens, who are rated around 12 or 14/1 at most sites.
Of course, when it comes to developing more knowledge and interest in the NFL, one way for those already interested in gambling to do this is to play an NFL-themed slot like $5 Million Touchdown at one of the online casino sites like http://www.casinoonline.co.nz. This five-reel, twenty pay line slot has reel icons designed to look like NFL players, cheerleaders, footballs and whistles, while also having a great bonus game that requires you to try and score a touchdown by passing the ball, all the while building up bonus credits. The name of the game comes from the maximum cash jackpot you can win, which is another key reason for playing it, but ultimately $5 Million Touchdown is lots of fun and a useful way of getting into the NFL before starting to bet on it.

Disgusting Defense

Has there been a more nasty defense so far? When Lance Briggs has as many touchdowns as Adrian Peterson, something crazy is going on. In standard Yahoo fantasy leagues, they have 100 points in 5 games.

10-6

The Bears were 8-8 last year and will go 10-6 this year. Having a healthy offense will ensure that.

Give Forte The Ball

Jay Cutler was the one who was most talked about this season for Chicago, especially in the playoffs. But one guy who is slightly overlooked is Matt Forte. Forte had slightly less touchdowns and yards than his first of three years in the league, but he greatly improved with carrying the ball. He averaged 4.5 yards per carry, up from his first two years in the league. When Bears fans buy tickets to see their team, they should want him to get the ball more.

2011 NFL Mock Draft

I know its super early, and I’m a huge Bears homer, but here is my first 2011 NFL Mock Draft. Also check out the new 2011 NFL Mock Draft Database

1. Buffalo Bills: Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford

Bills have the worst quarterback situation in the league including Arizona. Their offensive line, receivers and defense all need upgrades. But at least the have three starting running backs…

2. Cleveland Browns: A.J. Green, WR, Georgia

His suspension will have no bearing on his draft status this kid can play.

3. St. Louis Rams: Robert Quinn, DE, North Carolina

Another year, another high draft pick lineman. You’d think they’d be better…

4. Detroit Lions: Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU

Good defensive front. Good young quarterback and offensive weapons. Terrible secondary. The Lions are definitely on the uptick though.

5. Carolina Panthers: Marcell Dareus, DE/DT, Alabama

John Fox is gone after this season. A new coach will have a new defensive anchor. By the way, thanks for letting us take Chris Harris back.

6. Seattle Seahawks: Jake Locker, QB, Washington

Hometown hero. Hasselbeck is done and Charlie Whitehurst is not the savior (even though he looks like him).

7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska

Mathis will be too expensive to keep.

8. Arizona Cardinals: Von Miller, DE/OLB, Texas A&M

Probably wished Locker was still around. What’s their starting quarterback’s name again..? Matt Hall?

9. New England Patriots: Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama

Oh those Raiders… Good luck for the Pats. Maroney turned out to be a bust. With Moss all but gone, look for the Pats to maybe run the ball more next season.

10. Kansas City Chiefs: Jonathan Baldwin, WR, Pittsburgh

If Cassel is still around he could use another weapon…

11. Denver Broncos: Allen Bailey, DE/DT, Miami

A definite upgrade to their defensive line.

12. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Adrian Clayborn, DE, Iowa

With the Bucs quietly becoming the Bengals south by acquiring players with character concerns, Clayborn seems like a good fit. This pick would signal the making of a young and potentially dominant front four in Tampa

13. Philadelphia Eagles: Aaron Williams, CB, Texas

Vick, Vick, Vick. That’s all everyone wants to talk about with the Eagles. However, they could use a corner.

14. Green Bay Packers: Shane Vereen, RB, California

They need a running back to complement all the other talent on offense.

15. Minnesota Vikings: Travis Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma

Quarterback is also a concern with Grandpa finally going into a home…

16. New York Giants: Anthony Castonzo, OT, Boston College

Good positional value for Reese.

17. Tennessee Titans: Bruce Carter, OLB, North Carolina

Need help defensively. Carter can ball.

18. Cincinnati Bengals: Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas

Palmer has stunk for the Bengals.

19. New York Jets: Julio Jones, WR, Alabama

Edwards will be gone. Holmes might be. This passing attack has room to improve.

20. Miami Dolphins: Ryan Williams, RB, Virginia Tech

Brown’s injury prone. Williams is old. Miami wants to run the ball. Good pick.

21. San Francisco 49ers: Brandon Harris, CB, Miami

Clements is 32 and overpaid. Good pick here also.

22. Atlanta Falcons: Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame

Could take this offense from good to great.

23. San Diego Chargers: Joseph Barksdale, OT, LSU

McNeil probably won’t be resigned. Look for the Chargers to go OT.

24. New England Patriots: Cameron Heyward, DE/DT, Ohio State

Could also use an OLB, but Heyward can also rush the passer from inside.

25. Dallas Cowboys: DeAndre McDaniel, S, Clemson

A good cover safety.

26. Washington Redskins: Cameron Jordan, DE/DT, California

My bet is Haynesworth(less) will be cut at the end of the season.

27. Baltimore Ravens: Janoris Jenkins, CB, Florida

A lot of free agents and injury concerns for the Ravens at this position…

28. Indianapolis Colts: Mike Pouncey, G, Florida

This offensive is bad. Its been bad. You just realize because Peyton knows how to read defenses and get the ball to his hot receivers. Its not a coincidence they ranked last in rushing yards…

29. Pittsburgh Steelers: Ras-I Dowling, CB, Virginia

Good value pick. Could also look at OL or WR.

30. New Orleans Saints: Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue

As we all know Alex Brown is a beast, but they are still looking to upgrade the pass rush.

31. Houston Texans: Greg Romeus, DE, Pittsburgh

Great complement to Mario Williams on the other side.

32. Chicago Bears: Jurrell Casey, DT, USC

Tommie Harris isn’t Tommie Harris anymore. Peppers is the only player on that line doing anything. But after a super bowl win things could be worse…

Daaa Bears

The Bears picked up Jay Cutler from the Broncos last season in hopes that he would lead them to the top of the NFC North. Instead, Cutler underperformed throughout the season, throwing 26 interceptions. A team just cannot win when the quarterback throws that many picks during the course of the year.

Another player who didn’t live up to expectations after a surprising rookie year was running back Matt Forte. After rushing for over 1,200 yards his rookie season, he couldn’t reach 1,000 this past year. Star linebacker Brian Urlacher has had problems staying healthy as well.

All in all, the Bears are in for yet another mediocre season. I say they go 7-9 again in a top heavy division that features the Vikings and Packers.

Bears Will Not Improve This Season

The NFC North is all about Brett Favre. If Favre plays this season for the Vikings, It will be a tough race between the Vikings and Packers. Do the Bears and Lions have a better team then last season? Maybe they will compete for a wild card spot… read on to find out.

3. Chicago Bears: Last year the Bears thought they had a playoff team with the acquisition of Jay Cutler. They were sorely disappointed when Cutler struggled all season long throwing interception after interception. Cutler finished the season with only one more touchdown then interceptions with 27 touchdowns and 26 interceptions. Cutler’s interception rate goes up every season, if it goes up anymore, Cutler will probably be in the 30’s. It is very hard to have a winning season when your quarterback throws 30+ interceptions. I think the Bears should focus on running the ball more this season because they have a great running back in Matt Forte. Cutler wasn’t the only one to blame for the Bears misfortunes last season. The Bears do not have great receivers, Devin Hester has speed, but he can’t catch. Earl Bennett has a promising future and may even be the top receiver on the team this season. The Bears tight end, Greg Olsen is one of the best in the league, he should be Cutlers main target unless he is double covered, which will probably happen a lot. The Bears defense is solid like usual led by Brian Urlacher. The Bears shouldn’t have any trouble stopping their opponents from scoring unless Cutler keeps giving up the ball. Basically this team all depends on Cutler, if Cutler stops throwing interceptions, they will be a playoff team, but I don’t see that happening. I think the Bears will have the same record as last season at 7-9.
