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.

As much as I despise the Bears, very class move.

Yes it was.

What hasn't been mentioned by the media.  This takes up a roster spot. This isn't just,  here is a half million dollars.

Very cool, Prop.  You should be proud of your team!  That is a classy move.  If I'm not mistaken, wasn't that the injury where he was very close to losing his leg?

Proud to be a Bear fan today.  Haven't said that lot lately. Though things like this is more of a reason than wins. Sign Miller even though he'll most likely never play again  

Chicago sports has always taken care of their own. Bulls back with Jay Williams voided his contract with the motorcycle injury. White Sox always hire ex players for one thing or another.

Gotta give Pace credit he played the whole Fuller situation perfectly. Packers did Bears a huge favor also by offering all the guaranteed money 18 million over 4 years. Not going to hurt them at all in future cap space. Only thing odd was they matched so early they could of held packers cap space for 5 days. Guess they didn't want to leave him hanging as he was adamant he wanted to come back he knew he was going to. Just no way he was worth the franchise tag.

As far as I'm concerned the "Jury Is  Still Out" on these recent moves. I'll make my decisions after training camp starts/ends and the season begins this year.

Trey Burton is a very solid TE that I think will turn into a very good player.  I just think they slightly overpaid him.  They rest of the moves have been good signings.

Gabriel is who I'm most excited about. Him in the slot along with Cohen you have 2 big play makers. Bears are taking chances. Pace knows his ass is on the line. I like that!! He's not deviating from the plan. He's getting young guys. Not just patching holes with seasoned veterans
