Morning Hot Links: Breakfast News for May 23, 2012

Andrew GardaFeatured ColumnistMay 23, 2012

Quick and dirty (aka FAST FOOD, get it?) this morning as I have to hop into the city for a B/R video shoot.

Speaking of videos, we have two below breaking positional battles down, some reaction to the biggest Packers win yet, the Vikings signing rookies and more discussion about what the Lions could do if they weren't acting up.



Chicago Bears

Sean Jensen says Brandon Marshall is happy—and a little awed—by the reunion with ex-Broncos Jay Cutler and former wide receivers coach (now quarterbacks coach with the Bears) Jeremy Bates.  

The Chicago Tribune's Vaughn McClure says Brian Urlacher's knee rehab is going well. 

Aaron Nagler of CheeseheadTV and B/R's The Go Route shot a few videos this week, many covering the NFC North. This first one is about some of the positional battles the Bears may see in training camp.


Minnesota Vikings

Dan Wiederer says that the Vikings have signed seven of their draft choices so far, but not first-rounders Matt Kalil and Harrison Smith. 

Being a fan of a rebuilding team can be hard. Bleacher Report columnist Brian Dezelske gives you five reasons to be optimistic about this coming season.


Green Bay Packers

Another title for Titletown as Donald Driver wins Dancing with the Stars. Brian Carriveau has the recap and Kevin Seifert has some fun reaction off Twitter from Driver's teammates.

Tyler Dunne says that so far, second-year quarterback Graham Harrell is coming on strong.

Finally, here's another video of Aaron Nagler and I discussing some potential positional battles for the Pack.


Detroit Lions

Chris Houston says both the Lions' secondary and Aaron Berry are underrated, according to Justin Rogers. 

Mike Freeman of CBS Sports says the Lions could be great—if they could get themselves under control.
