BOURBONNAIS – Saturday marked the first day the Bears donned pad in 2015 and the occasion belonged to the linemen, finally able to do some actual hitting of consequence.
The Bears are moving on from veteran offensive lineman Roberto Garza.
Not since the Green Bay game in 2012 when his blind side was in the hands of J’Marcus Webb has Jay Cutler been pummeled this badly by a pass rush.
One of the stable givens of the 2013 season obviously was the offensive line, and when 2014 began the same starting five were in place.
When the Heisman Trophy is awarded Saturday, one member of the Bears will be paying particular attention.
