@mikecwright: Bears practiced today at fastest pace I've seen in three years covering them. In & out of huddle quickly/plays run quickly.

@mikecwright: A little irritated today, but he's fine. RT @CoreyBohler: @mikecwright - What is your impression of Trestman thus far, MCW?

@ZachZaidman: Marc Trestman says Gabe Carimi is a guard more than a tackle.

Jeff Dickerson ‏@ESPNChiBears 2m
Strange watching Devin Hester stand with the specialists at practice. No routes at WR the whole workout. #Bears

Brad Biggs ‏@BradBiggs 3m
Is this a make or break year for Jay Cutler? He says "every year you put pressure on yourself."

Adam Jahns ‏@adamjahns 3m
Henry Melton said Lance Briggs is handling the defensive calls at the moment for the #Bears defense.

Thank GOD! Now let's see if Trestman can get the first few plays in the game without calling a timeout. He may just pass the Lovie Litmus Test yet. Wink

@mikecwright: Can't get too far into details of Bears offense because big brother is watching. I'll just say the ball is out fast.

Zach Zaidman ‏@ZachZaidman 24s
Trestman says he's giving players a whole new gameplan for Wednesday and they have to learn another 100 plays and another 20 runs.


Matt Bowen ‏@MattBowen41 25s
More 3-step routes & inside breaking cuts. RT @jayrigdon5: @MattBowen41 how different will offense look from last year?

Matt Bowen ‏@MattBowen41 22s
No pads in mini-camp, but MLB D.J. Williams is fluid in his ability to open and run the inside seam. Good athlete. #Bears

I love how he wants to play fast in practice as well as in the game. Also, great news that the offense is picking up the play book so quickly. I'm so stoked for this season!

I follow a bunch of the players on Twitter (essentially the whole offense) and several of them tweeted this weekend about spending their weekends buried in the new playbook. I think the players are excited to see what they can do in this offense knowing that this is, for the first time in forever, an offense-first team now with a coach who wants to run other teams out of the stadium versus one who just wants to sprint out to a lead and sit on it.

@mikecwright: Observations today: Wootton & Shea McClellin looked really quick. Could've been fieldturf in Payton Center. Rodriguez looked good too.

@mikecwright: Brandon Hardin has really good feet for a big guy. Tom Nelson has more range than I expected.

@mikecwright: Another minicamp observation: Chris Conte. He's been on the weights, eating creatine, something. Arms bigger. Feet still quick as a gato.

Not surprising. That's what he likes: fast, safe practice without the ball hitting the ground.

I really hope that Shea shows something this year.

I was disappointed with last season and I really wanted to see more from a 1st round pick.

Mullin: Look Beyond Tempo - Trestman Influence Running Deeper
Interesting article with some decent tidbits.

http://www.csnchicago.com/blog/bears...running-deeper

The Bears began their first real practices with the new coaching staff by rolling at a fast tempo on offense in particular.

This is not news; everybody talks about doing things fast. When a coaching staff announces that its plan will be to use as much of the play clock as possible, practice leisurely and meander to lines of scrimmage that will be news. Mike Tice was all about quick out of huddles. Mike Martz wanted fast-everything. Dave Wannstedt once declared that the Bears would meet harder.

What was news on Tuesday was not the tempo, but the absence of errors, which in fact could reasonably have been expected to rise because of the tempo. People in a hurry make mistakes as details are missed, particularly when movements and timings are anything but second-nature.

The link was invalid, so I went there and cut-n-pasted it.

Man, do I remember the great gnashing of teeth when he was picked. I guess since Mel Kiper (insert any other pundit here) didn't have him ranked where those people wanted him, he was somehow invalidated. Rolling Eyes
