Top-5 Bears, Jackson Clutch, Daniel’s Salute to Service, Rodgers Loses Chug Contest, and Other Bullets

Chicago Bears

May has flown by! It’s already Memorial Day Weekend, but I don’t have any plans. This is probably a good time to re-charge some batteries and take a relaxed attitude toward the weekend before gearing up for the summer.

  • The best of the best to lace ’em up for the Chicago Bears:

  • Creating that list was always going to be difficult. Despite some lean years that are still fresh in our memory, the Bears have had a wealth of talent throughout their storied history. Fitting all the heavy hitters was going to be impossible. But for the most part, the list is solid – even if I don’t agree with the placement of a couple of players who probably deserved better.
  • With that in mind, I appreciated Dan Pompei’s transparency in sharing what went into ranking the players:

  • Even after reading it, I still would have ranked Brian Urlacher higher than 14th.
  • WSCR 670-AM’s Dan Bernstein sorts through the snubs, players who were rated too highly, not ranked high enough, and highlights those who probably shouldn’t have made the list at all.
  • My 10 favorite Bears who didn’t crack the top-100 list: Ted Washington, Ruben Brown, Rosevelt Colvin, Marcus Robinson, Alex Brown, Anthony Thomas, Curtis Conway, Thomas Jones, Keith Traylor, Raymont Harris.
  • To be fair, I’m not sure how many of these guys deserve spots on the list. But because they were favorites of mine growing up, I thought this would be an opportune time to spread the love to guys who provided a highlight in my Bears fandom at one point or another.
  • Eddie Jackson’s inclusion on the list was a surprise because he only has two years under his belt, but you’ll get no argument from me. Perhaps having the clutch gene gives him an edge over others:

  • The future is still bright:

  • I can’t wait to see what a healthy Anthony Miller can do in this offense!
  • Dream big! Long odds tend to yield big rewards:

  • Let’s put it this way: Placing a $10 wager on David Montgomery to win the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year award could pay out $210. It might be worth the investment. Just saying.
  • There are times when the NFL’s salute to armed forces feels like nothing more than lip service, but Chase Daniel’s visit to U.S. troops in South Korea is a good look:

  • Oh, brothers:

  • Watch Aaron Rodgers get whooped here:

  • Elsewhere in the division, Matthew Stafford shows how it’s done:

  • I can’t wait until the Bulls put together a championship contender and Mitchell shows ’em how it’s done.
  • Ah, speaking of Chicago’s basketball team:
