Bears won’t tip over Bulls as easily as in Wofford rout
When you stand up behind Brandon Marshall, you realize how big that man is at the position that he plays. Hes at an elite level for his position in terms of size, dynamic ability, production. I dont see any back off. Actually, I see a better player. Hes a player who turned some heads last week when he expressed frustration over his recovery and said he might have rushed to get back, even though he received rest throughout camp and practices leading up to preseason games. Given his well-documented battle with borderline personality disorder, a condition that led to past problems on and off the field, that raised some eyebrows. We dont see (frustration), coach Marc Trestman said. I dont see it in the meetings. I saw him very attentive in meetings. Again, he worked very hard out in practice, from individual through the practice.
Cal Bears kick off Sonny Dykes era with 44-30 loss to Northwestern
CDT, September 2, 2013 The Chicago Bears completed their trade for tight end Dante Rosario on Monday afternoon, placing Kyle Adams on waivers to make room. The Bears sent a conditional seventh-round pick in 2014 to the Cowboys in return, according to ESPN Dallas. The deal leaked out in the morning, but Rosario had to arrive from Dallas and pass a physical before it was made official. Rosario, 28, is a seven-year veteran. He spent last season with the Chargers and caught 10 passes for 95 yards and three touchdowns. Rosario, 6-foot-3, 242 pounds, was with the Broncos in 2011 and spent the first four years of his career with the Panthers. His most productive season as a pass catcher came in 2010 when he caught 32 passes for 264 yards.
Vikings claim ex-Bears lineman J’Marcus Webb
Hester helps provide it. Left tackle Jermon Bushrod showed enough strength to wonder if Bears play-by-play man Jeff Joniak will use his last name as a verb by midseason. Jared Allen got Bushrodded on that third down. Defensive tackle Henry Melton’s durability poses the greatest concern along an iffy defensive interior that remains the most overlooked potential issue. Melton, making $8.45 million thanks to the franchise tag, left the Aug. 9 exhibition with a concussion and didn’t return to the field until Wednesday. Jay Cutler can come as close to reaching his potential as he has since 2008 by embracing Trestman’s coaching, as two impressive quarters against the Raiders underscored. If somebody starts using Cutler’s contract situation as an excuse, remind them Blaine Gabbert and Jake Locker are NFL starters.
Bears’ Brandon Marshall: Injured hip ‘in amazing shape’
Marshall said the frustration he displayed last week stemmed from not being 100 percent healthy. “When you have a surgery, sometimes you get frustrated getting back to that level,” Marshall said, per The Associated Press. “We have a lot of amazing things going on here on the field and off the field, and I want to be a part of it. So at times it can be (frustrating).” It’s a good thing Marshall is feeling better because his general manager, Phil Every, heaped some heavy expectations on the Bears ‘ No. 1 target. “He’s gonna get mad at me for saying this because I’ve been telling him all summer — I see a guy that’s better than he was last year,” Emery said, per ESPN Chicago . “I see a guy that’s more dynamic.” Considering Cutler targeted Marshall an exorbitant amount of times last season, expecting more than last year’s 118 receptions for 1,508 yards and 11 touchdowns is saying a lot. We expect coach Marc Trestman ‘s offense to be more diverse than the Bears ‘ offense last season, but Marshall clearly still is the alpha dog of the receiving corps.
They went to Ohio State and played extremely well, Baylor coach Art Briles said. It could have been a lot closer. But it will be a good matchup for us in that they are up-tempo and throw the ball more. It will be a big step up in the caliber of depth and the speed factor. They have a lot of guys who can run and have been on bigger stages week in and week out than our previous opponent. After falling into a 23-0 first-quarter hole against the Buckeyes, Buffalo cut the lead to 30-20 early in the third quarter as quarterback Joe Licata hit Matt Weiser with a 16-yard touchdown pass and Alex Neutz with a 10-yard scoring pass. Licata finished 19 of 32 for 185 yards while Neutz made nine catches for 98 yards. Buffalos ground game was led by Branden Oliver with 73 yards on 26 carries. The Bulls will present a much different challenge than Wofford which ran an option-based wingbone attack.
Bears trade for help at tight end
Nothwestern regained the lead when Dean Lowry tipped Goff’s pass and Ellis intercepted and returned it 56 yards for a touchdown and a 27-24 lead with 4:40 left in the third quarter. D’Amato tied the score at 27-all with a 38-yard field goal on the first play of the fourth quarter. Dykes brought the crowd to its feet on the game’s first series with a piece of trickery that netted the Bears their only touchdown of the half. Lined up for a 27-yard field goal, Jackson Bouza took the snap, flipped the ball over his head to D’Amato, then curled around the defense to his right. As fans tried to decipher what was happening, D’Amato pushed a pass over the rush to Bouza, who scooted into the end zone for the 10-yard score and a Cal lead with 11:35 left in the opening period. The razzle dazzle capped an 82-yard drive in which Bigelow ran three times for 55 yards. The Wildcats answered immediately, going 75 yards in just five plays to knot the score on a 33-yard run by Green with 9:33 left in the quarter. Northwestern went in front 14-7 when Trevor Siemian threw a 19-yard touchdown to Tony Jones, who beat nickel back Isaac Lapite down the right sideline with 12:53 left in the second quarter.
