Emery gives his take on recent additions - ...and then goes off to add...

Bears sign CBs Kelvin Hayden, Jonathan Wilhite - "Securing two cornerbacks seems to indicate the Bears will target a defensive end with the 19th overall pick" (what about OL?)... "team still has plans to add a safety either via free agency or through the draft".

Signings, character issues could steer Bears clear of CBs - Jim Miller explains why Bears will likely look elsewhere with the 19th pick.

Lovie’s silence on injury details makes “bounty” sense - Moon Mullin: head coach "indeed doing his players a favor when he’s maddeningly vague on injuries".

John Clayton: New offseason rules forcing coaches to adjust - New CBA calls for less coach-player face time; importance of OTAs grows.

Football Outsiders: The Jets-Giants Axis - "Reckless" vs "Disciplined". Also, an interesting story/debate over 1933 Bear Beattie Feathers, the first player to rush for 1,000 yards in a season.

Roller-coaster draft prospects - Includes two players who are often touted as possible Bears targets in the 1st round.

WalterFootball's 5-round Mock Draft - "Mike Tice is inexplicably infatuated with J'Marcus Webb". Also, their updated Draft Prospects.

The 2006 Draft: Six Years Later - Top QB prospects: Matt Leinart, Vince Young, Jay Cutler. Brandon Marshall was a 4-round pick. Holy crap, did the Broncos we do well out of this draft!

JC gets some love in NFL.com's Quarterback rankings - "The Bears would've been in the Super Bowl last season if he stayed healthy." Reckon the ranking would've been higher if he hadn't broken his thumb; he's a better QB than at least three of the top 10. Meanwhile, Flacco be trippin'.....
