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.

I still care about our division. I don’t want people playing one of our teams thinking they have an easy day at the park. That wasn’t an easy day at the park for anyone!

Nagy got out coached in that overtime. He ran the ball on three consecutive plays and Gase mixed it up to gain enough yardage for the field goal.

That bye week is definitely a momentem killer.

Well what did you expect! the old bear team reared it's ugly head again . Cudos to that last defensive stand at the goal line to get the ball back. Bears were great today on third down and short with short passes to get a first down,so can you tell me why they did not do that on that last series but chose to run on third and short? and I knew even before the snap that our kicker was going to miss that field goal attempt to win. Still too many missed tackles and players falling down trying to cover the dolphin recievers. The bears should of won this game today in regulation time but took the loss in overtime. UNACCEPTABLE!!!!!!
