That rumble you hear is Ndamukong Suh. The All-Pro defensive tackle is coming to Chicago, along with a nasty group of defensive linemen who include ends Cliff Avril and Kyle Vanden Bosch, and tackle Nick Fairley. All three non-Suhs have achieved some level of NFL success: Avril led the Lions in sacks last season and is doing it again, Fairly was a first-round draft pick last year, and Vanden Bosch is a three-time Pro Bowler. But none stirs the imagination like the 6-foot-4, 307-pound Suh, a man as acclaimed as he is notorious.

Why do I bring this up in a column where I'm supposed to predict the weekend's NFL action and challenge you to beat me? Neckbeard, of course. Former Bear Kyle Orton is back in town, and he's likely to play against the his former team Sunday when the Kansas City Chiefs visit Soldier Field. He's not the starter, but don't worry, he'll be in. Chiefs starting quarterback Tyler Palko is terrible.

Some Chicago residents should expect disruptions in the coming weeks as MTV shoots a new scripted dramatic series, titled 'Underemployed', throughout the city. In a slight departure from the network's usual reality series, the Chicago-based show will be shot in various Chicago locations through Aug. 10, according to the Chicago Film Office.
