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.

Nagy has put together a pretty impressive coaching staff.

Could be a pretty good week for Pace. Got his guy in Nagy, Fangio looks like could be coming back and now Bevell falls into your lap.

Matt Nagy it is.  Big shock as he was huge on Mitch last year in the draft.

Doesn't matter who the bears hire as coach if the team hasn't got the horses on the field to compete. The coach and his staff could be the best in the world but when you have upper management as well as the owner(s) of the club  refusing to invest the money in providing  a team  that will compete then you have the same old  tired scenario of not playing good football. And we as bears fans continue to suffer the result of not being entitled to a championship team year in and year out.

I don't get all the Gruden love around the league. Hasn't coached since 2008. Never won a playoff game his last 6 years.
