CHICAGO | Suddenly, Bears' fans love Jay Cutler again.
HAMMOND | Repeats are bad on TV, great if you're taking a test over.

MUNSTER | It's not often the game MVP is a given before halftime. But Munster's Jeff Proctor was that good Friday night.
Nobody promised Ryan Grigson a rose garden with chirping bluebirds and Disney smiles. If they had, he wouldn't be general manager of the Colts.

LAKE FOREST | There's a huge billboard north on the Tri-State Expressway that features menacing closeups of unshavened Bears Lance Briggs, Jared Allen and Charles Tillman with the words: MORE STOPS THAN THE CTA.

ST. JOHN | Sometimes, you just have to cross the street and silence that big guy flexing his muscles at you.
LAKE FOREST | When the Bears pipe in simulated crowd noise at their practices, it sounds like a grizzly with laryngitis and is as intimidating as a parking ticket.
HAMMOND | Every new prep football season is like a movie premier and all you want is a strong cast and more action than drama.
CHICAGO | Each day in the Bears' cafeteria, rookie free safety Brock Vereen is served a heaping portion of humility, hold the salt.
Do you know who Gene Schroeder is?
BOURBONNAIS | As the final training camp practice ended on an overcast 61-degree Tuesday, coach Marc Trestman huddled the team at midfield while hundreds of applauding fans gave his Bears a standing ovation.

BOURBONNAIS | With nearly 30 minutes to go in Monday's practice, a scuffle ensued as Martellus Bennett body-slammed first-round pick Kyle Fuller.
BOURBONNAIS | Chad Rempel and Brandon Hartson may as well mow the practice fields at Olivet Nazarene University or drive the golf carts that take Bears' players to the cafeteria afterwards.

As the NFL becomes more of a passing league, Pierre Thomas isn't feeling like the Maytag repairman just yet.
CICERO | If you fall, stay flat on the ground, protect your head, and the bulls will jump over you. Hopefully.

Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, meet Chesterton's Mitch McGary.

Invitations to the 2014 NBA Draft Turnabout will be handed out tonight as Glenn Robinson III and Mitch McGary wait by the phone for a call to the formal affair.
