Memorial Day, Urlacher Highlights, RB Excellence, White Perspective, and Other Bullets

Chicago Bears News, NFL News and Rumors

Taking this set of Bullets on the road. Thanks to Brett and Michael for holding things down for me while I was at the Indy 500. It was quite the experience, to say the least.

  • It’s Memorial Day, so allow yourself some time to reflect, remember, and respect:

  • Happy highlights: The best play from every year of Brian Urlacher’s Hall of Fame career.
  • Some perspective regarding Kevin White’s tone while answeringreer questions from the media last week via Pro Football Weekly’s Bob LeGere, who notes White has basically had to answer the same questions the last three years.
  • Questions about White’s injury history have piled up since he missed his rookie year and haven’t gone away. It makes sense that White’s answers are short because what is there to say that hasn’t already been said? What is there to detail when there isn’t much to explain? White’s injury history is unfortunate because there is talent bubbling under the surface, but it has yet to show itself on the field. It stinks. And while it’s easy to pile up on White, you might find it even easier to pull for what can easily be painted as an underdog/redemption story for a player who has had nothing but bad luck since being drafted.
  • Kevin White’s college tape was fun:

  • Theres something about the idea of Tarik Cohen being one of the Bears’ better receivers tickles my fancy:

  • Even with Cohen and Jordan Howard at the top of the depth chart, a small part of me is still a bit surprised the Bears didn’t draft a running back. Not that there was a pressing need at the position, but we know how quickly depth at that spot can deteriorate. A deep class at running back should yield some immediate contributors, and Senior Analyst Gil Brandt tries to predict the seven most successful rookies at the position this coming year — including four who will square up against the Bears defense.
  • David Johnson is no rookie, but you can add him to the list of talented running backs the Bears will be responsible for bringing down this season. Based on his skill set, I can see him doing big things in 2018, and so can Bucky Brooks:

  • Ever wonder what a team of the highest-paid players at each position would look like? Well, look no further.
  • 😊:

  • I missed this exchange, but absolutely love it:
