Lance Briggs had some funny things to say about meetings during training camp. Specifically with linebackers coach Bob Babich.
I’m just excited about everything, going into long, boring meetings going over the same stuff, covering a lot of the same materials and listening to Bob Babich talk for two hours straight, Briggs said via CSNChicago.com. That’s the highlight of my day.
First-year Bear Michael Bush figures to be in for a short-yardage role.
He knows he needs to embrace whatever role the Bears are going to give him this season.
That’s the role I’ve been stuck with because of my size, he said via Chicagotribune.com. But if that’s what I have to do, that’s what I have to do.
Rookie safety Brandon Hardin has the size at 6’3″ to be a real athlete in the Bears’ secondary for years to come. He is learning to make the same transition that Chris Conte made last season from cornerback to safety.
I’m making the adjustment [to safety] well so far, Hardin said via Chicagosuntimes.com. Learning more and more every day, and that’s the key for me — getting my head in the playbook and learning all I can.
Wide receivers coach Daryl Drake has to be excited about his group this season. He talked about Brandon Marshall’s abilities and was pretty honest about it.
I don’t think you can catch 100 balls per year and not have good hands, Drake said via Chicagotribune.com. Does he have Steve Largent hands? No. Cris Carter hands? No. But he has good-enough hands.
When Brandon drops the football, it’s because he’s trying to make something happen before he catches it, Drake said. We’ve addressed that. We are working on it.
Here is the complete schedule for Bears’ training camp.
