CBS CHICAGO BLOGGER AWARDS

CBS Chicago is giving out awards for local bloggers and it’d be fun to see if we can crush the competition and get DaBearsBlog to the top of the heap.  It would also be a nice promotional tool for us and the network.  If you like it here and feel like voting, click this link.

STILL AVAILABLE ON THE FREE AGENT MARKET?

There are still several game-changing type players on the market.  The most promising addition looks to be the reported mutual interest between former Seahawks linebacker Lofa Tatupu and the Bears.  Tatupu would step directly into the starting lineup, replacing Pisa Tinoisamoa.  (Pisa MAY and SHOULD re-sign with the Bears.)  A linebacking corps of Urlacher, Briggs, Roach, Tatupu, Pisa would be as talented and deep as the Bears have had in years.

Also available: WRS Braylon Edwards and Malcolm Floyd are out there but not logical targets for the Bears.  CB Kelvin Hayden, who ripped the soul from Chicago in the Super Bowl, should be a target.  You can never have too many corners in this system.

EARLY REPORTS FROM CAMP VIA TWITTER

So if you’re not on Twitter, here’s how it works.  During camp practices, every single reporter covering the Chicago Bears Tweets every single play.  Based on all these Tweets (and they can get very obnoxious) there are three guys making an early “surprise” impact: Lance Louis, Major Wright and Dane Sanzenbacher.  The latter two mean little but many analysts have predicted Lance Louis will find his way into this starting lineup and I have predicted he’ll end up being a better options at LG than Chris Williams.
