In the Chicago Sun-Times, Rummana Hussain reports that Brian Urlacher and the mother of one of his children have been ordered to take a parenting class by a judge. "The three-hour course, mandated by the county, should iron out some of the problems the pair are having with child custody, Judge Dinah Archambeault said after a two-day hearing on Urlacher's request that Tyna Robertson be held in contempt for violating an order outlining his offseason visits with Kennedy."

In the Chicago Tribune, Fred Mitchell spoke with the best receiver in NFL history, Jerry Rice, and heard some encouragement for Rex Grossman. "Before Wednesday night's ESPY Awards in Los Angeles, I spoke via telephone to future Hall of Fame receiver Jerry Rice about the possibility of the Bears winning a Super Bowl behind a young, developing quarterback such as Grossman. Instead of piling on, Rice said much of the responsibility for the success of the Bears' passing game rests with the improved play of the receivers." Read the rest of Mitchell Right Here ...

At, Larry Mayer interviews WR coach Darryl Drake, mostly about the progress of Devin Hester. "He’s as special as any kid I’ve ever been around. He has that innate ability to do certain things when he has the ball in his hands. It’s a gift. He works hard to strengthen that gift and he’s very humble, so he’ll continue to excel."

Here at, Jeremy Stoltz gives us the fourth installment of his five-part series, "The Evolution of Offense," with a look at George Halas and the T-formation. "Halas chose Jones as his head coach and made Shaughnessy, who was the head coach at the nearby University of Chicago, an advisor to the team. Their constant tweaking of the T-formation, along with a 1933 rule change that allowed passing from anywhere behind the line of scrimmage, turned the long-forgotten formation into an unstoppable force."
