TweetIn a recent interview with the Pennsylvania Gazette, defensive tackle prospect Aaron Donald opened up to Senior NFL Columnist Art Vandelay about his hopes for the upcoming NFL Draft. "If I'm drafted before 15 I won't be happy, but I won't hold out. I know exactly what I'll do because if it's good enough for […]

Chicago Bears Film-room: Breaking down the Sacks Week 7 http://ballhyped.com/2013/10/24/chicago-bears-film-room-breaking-down-the-sacks-week-7/ Thu, 24 Oct 2013 19:20:13 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2013/10/24/chicago-bears-film-room-breaking-down-the-sacks-week-7/

TweetThe overall pass protection is still leaps and bounds above the last few seasons for the Chicago Bears. Head coach Marc Trestman, offensive coordinator / offensive line coach Aaron Kromer, and the players are doing a good job with the new scheme so far. Hopefully new quarterback Josh McCown can manage the game, and be […]

Is Defensive Coordinator Mel Tucker to blame for the Chicago Bears woes? http://ballhyped.com/2013/10/24/is-defensive-coordinator-mel-tucker-to-blame-for-the-chicago-bears-woes/ http://ballhyped.com/2013/10/24/is-defensive-coordinator-mel-tucker-to-blame-for-the-chicago-bears-woes/#comments Thu, 24 Oct 2013 19:18:08 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2013/10/24/is-defensive-coordinator-mel-tucker-to-blame-for-the-chicago-bears-woes/

TweetWhen I look at the Chicago Bears 2013 defense I see three major problems. 1) The front four isn't generating a pass rush. 2) They are missing a lot of tackles. 3) Injuries have robbed the unit of some talent. There are other issues for sure, but if those first two problems were fixed, then […]

Chicago Bears Tape Breakdown: Grading Kyle Long and Jordan Mills http://ballhyped.com/2013/10/18/chicago-bears-tape-breakdown-grading-kyle-long-and-jordan-mills/ Fri, 18 Oct 2013 15:08:27 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2013/10/18/chicago-bears-tape-breakdown-grading-kyle-long-and-jordan-mills/

TweetI take a look at the Chicago Bears and New York Giants game tape in detail, and grade the play of the two Bears rookie offensive linemen, Kyle Long and Jordan Mills. The Bears have started 1st round draft pick Kyle Long and 5th round pick Jordan Mills at right guard and right tackle respectively, […]

Chicago Bears Playbook: Marc Trestman will scheme any player into the slot http://ballhyped.com/2013/09/19/chicago-bears-playbook-marc-trestman-will-scheme-any-player-into-the-slot/ Thu, 19 Sep 2013 18:43:43 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2013/09/19/chicago-bears-playbook-marc-trestman-will-scheme-any-player-into-the-slot/

TweetIt seems like most teams in the NFL have that shifty slot receiver. You know the type, a guy with good hands, a guy that runs crisp routes, and can get you yards after the catch. Players like Wes Welker, Victor Cruz, Danny Amendola, Percy Harvin, to name a few. But what about the Bears? […]

Former Bears GM Jerry Angelo on Jay Cutler http://ballhyped.com/2013/09/05/former-bears-gm-jerry-angelo-on-jay-cutler/ Thu, 05 Sep 2013 21:06:32 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2013/09/05/former-bears-gm-jerry-angelo-on-jay-cutler/

TweetI dug this stat up a couple weeks ago, and it's relevant based off of JAs red zone comments. Since throwing 6 red zone interceptions in 2009 (to 19 red zone TDs), Cutler cut his red zone TD-Int ratio to 15-3 in 2010. The last two years he hasn't thrown one red zone pick, going […]

TweetYesterday we talked about who the face of the Chicago Bears is now that Brian Urlacher has retired. A few of the Bears mentioned were Jay Cutler, Matt Forte, Jonathan Bostic, and head coach Marc Trestman. Writing that article got me to thinking about who the face of each franchise is. Curiosity got the best […]

TweetLast year Kurt Becker was named the head varsity football coach at East Aurora High School, and now he's helping to build the football culture in his community.

TweetWith NFL training camps a few weeks away, the fantasy football players are already beginning preparation for their drafts.

You pick the NFC North All Pro Team http://ballhyped.com/2013/07/05/you-pick-the-nfc-north-all-pro-team/ Fri, 05 Jul 2013 19:35:38 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2013/07/05/you-pick-the-nfc-north-all-pro-team/

TweetThe first thing that struck me when checking out Dave Dameshek's divisional All Pro Teams was that he had the Chicago Bears with more players than the Green Bay Packers, five to four. The second thing I found interesting was his inclusion of nine Minnesota Vikings on his team. That's a lot, but they have […]

Pro Football Talk is wrong about their Chicago Bears Mt. Rushmore http://ballhyped.com/2013/06/13/pro-football-talk-is-wrong-about-their-chicago-bears-mt-rushmore/ Thu, 13 Jun 2013 21:03:37 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2013/06/13/pro-football-talk-is-wrong-about-their-chicago-bears-mt-rushmore/

TweetThere's a large contingent of Bears fans that are sick and tired of Mike Ditka, and I get that. He's become a larger than life caricature of himself over the years, he seemed to be more concerned with the 'Ditka brand', and some fans hold him responsible for not winning more than one Super Bowl […]

TweetCharles Tillman was named a Father of the Year with good reason: after his second daughter Tiana survived a harrowing heart ailment, he established the Cornerstone Foundation to help other children and their families navigate the trials of such life-threatening diseases. Last night, Tillman joined with Kings of Rosemont and a bevy of current and […]
