Position Listing
Michael Ola
News
The Bears ruled the following players inactive for Monday's game against the Saints: kicker Robbie Gould (quad), safety Chris Conte (back), cornerback Terrance Mitchell, offensive lineman Michael Ola (back), quarterback David Fales, defensive end Trevor Scott and defensive tackle Brandon Dunn.
Jared Allen
News
Even though the Bears are moving from a 4-3 to a 3-4 defensive scheme, defensive end Jared Allen is excited about the new outlook coach John Fox and defensive coordinator Vic Fangio are bringing to the Windy City.

"You look at what coach Fox has done over the history of his career," Allen said, per ESPN. "I think we'll be very disciplined. We'll be very cohesive. With Fangio coming in, you've got a big 3-4 background. Fox ran a 4-3 his whole life. So I think we're very versatile in how we can use our players. I'm excited to see what the plan going forward is." 

Allen has been reluctant in the past to move from a defensive end in a 4-3 front to outside linebacker in a 3-4. In 2012, when he was with the Vikings, he was quoted as saying, "I want to end my career as a defensive end. And I'm not playing a 2-gap, let me just throw that out the window now."

It seems as though the 33-year-old Allen no longer feels that way.

"One thing we do is we work. I'll be honest, I don't think we had a bad practice all year," Allen said. "Now it didn't always equate to wins and victories. We came up short. I think he's going to inherit guys that are eager, that want to win. That's one thing that was very prevalent in our locker room: guys wanting to win. I think coach Fox is going to give us that direction and give us that attitude, that sense of focus, purpose and discipline to get to where we want need to get."

"I know you guys are going to ask questions from a million different angles but again it's just my job and John's [Fox] job and our staff's job to just be thorough and slow with this process. I know there is a time frame but I don't want to rush any decisions."

Martellus Bennett
News
Marc Trestman lasted only two seasons as the Bears coach before losing his job. Bears tight end Martellus Bennett said on NFL Network on Friday that Trestman's demise in Chicago was plagued by his inability to control a locker room full of personalities.

"Trestman, I think, first off, the issue that he had, probably, was managing us all, all the different personalities," Bennett said. "There's a lot of big personalities (in the locker room). And I think, for a first-time head coach in the NFL, dealing with all the personalities that you have, I think that's hard when you got guys like me, you know, (Brandon) Marshall ... Lance Briggs on defense, (Charles) Tillman.

"There's so many guys with such outgoing personalities that managing those guys and bringing them all together is what a leader needs to do, you know? And that's one of the toughest things."

Although Trestman was fired in late December, he wasn't out of work for long, landing the job as the Ravens offensive coordinator after Gary Kubiak left to become the Broncos coach. Bennett believes Trestman will have success in his new role.

"Calling plays, he was excellent," Bennett said. "I think he's going to be an excellent coordinator for the Ravens.  Strategically, he was great. But on the field, guys just weren't executing.

"A lot of it comes back to the player preparation. If you're not preparing to a high level, then the coaches can only do so much; the game's not played on paper, it's played on grass. On paper, we look great. On grass, we looked bad."

Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall had some harsh words for Lions center Dominic Raiola Monday. 

"This guy's a dirty player and he's a worse human being. He has no respect for himself," Marshall said.

Raiola, who was suspended one game for stomping on the leg of Ego Ferguson in Sunday's game against the Bears, was said to also poke fun at Marshall's history of mentall illness two years ago in pregame warmups.

"I'm just warming up, just standing there. He's like, 'Go take your medicine. You freaking weirdo, you freaking crazy guy.'" 

Marshall was unable to play in Sunday's game after suffering broken ribs and a lung injury and being placed on the injured-reserve.
