Some notes on the Bears' minicamp from football.com.

Quarterback Jim Miller looked to have no ill effects from the health problems he experienced during mini-camp. One thing that did impress us is how Miller was threading the needle in between defenders. He was on target and had a good amount of zip on the ball. We have to imagine that some of his receivers may have had sore hands after hearing the cracking sound of the ball hitting them in the hands on many occasions. Another thing that may be a bad omen for Chicago opponents is how the deep passes were hitting the receivers.......right in stride many times. And on the incompletions, there were no short rounds that would be easy pickings for defenders. In a nutshell, Miller showed no weakness in terms of arm strength. Chris Chandler also made some nice throws, but it was Miller who impressed us most.

Another thing that stood out were the dropped passes.......or maybe we should say the lack thereof. The Chicago receivers took some heat last season for their inconsistent play, specifically drops and bad routes. Outside of some rustiness by Marcus Robinson early in the day, the drops were pretty much absent, and the routes looked sharper. Marty Booker still looked to be the man, and even took a bow after hauling in a bomb that prompted the fans chant his name. But Dez White and David Terrell were sharp as well. White has made major progress in his game from 2001. So much so, that Booker and White are the starting receivers at this point, according to coach Dick Jauron. David Terrell is right there on his heels, and appears to be all business as he enters his second season.

Hope Barth is gone after this week. That wasn't even close. At first I didn't even see where the ball had gone. I think he was aiming for the tunnel.

I see progress. They’re still very bad but there are some bright spots. Trubisky has done a nice job. He hasn’t been light out but he clearly has some game. I look forward to seeing what he can do with a couple NFL wide receivers instead of this crew. The defense is a little better. The coaching remains hopeless and can’t get worse so any coaching change can only help them. Nothing to be gained by letting Fox go right now unless they see Fangio as their next head coach. Pretty sure Fox already knows he won’t be back judging by his changed demeanor with the media.

8 penalties not including the ones that were declined and fumble the ball into the endzone talk about beating yourself

Just posted on the packer thread about this lousy bear team and this clown we have as a head coach. Challenging a call when it would of been just inches to punch it in for the tying score. I just don't get it. i have no further words to explain what a lousy team and coaching staff  we have! They 'REALLY STINK"!!!
