I hope you had a great weekend, or at least one better than the Bears and Lions did.
We're changing things up a bit here on the links piece, so it's short and sweet. The links will be here, and if there is something awesome to hit on later, I'll expand on it fully in an article later.
Also, because I have received a few emails asking, I hooked my computer up to my flat panel this weekend for the Bears game and it was fantastic.
It's not Hi-Def because the signal off the computer wasn't, but it was nice given I had to watch the game on the computer and this way, I could sit on the couch to do so.
Speaking of Da Bears, let's start there.
Over at ESPNChicago.com, Michael Wright says it looks like J'Marcus Webb will end up at left tackle.
Wright's co-worker, Jon Greenberg, has a great piece detailing his concerns with the offensive line.
Unfortunately, Bears rookie Brandon Hardin will miss the season according to Joe Cowley.
Justin Rogers has some thoughts on the game against the Raiders at MLive.com.
Over at the Free Press, Dave Birkett says while it's all well and good to talk ground game, the Lions will ultimately be a very pass-happy team in 2012.
Heading to CheeseheadTV.com Zach Kruse has another great film breakdown piece, this time looking at the Packers' win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
Second-year player Derek Sherrod is still recovering from his broken leg, and that is going to be an issue for the Packers according to the Journal-Sentinel's Tom Silverstein.
ESPN 1500's Tom Pelissero says that John Carlson should be back soon and ready for Week 1. I wonder how far behind he is though and if his start will be slow.
