If you're any kind of a Bears fan, you know the franchise has a painfully long list of draft and free agent woes. The latest of which is Gabe Carimi.  The Bears traded its former first-round pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a sixth round pick in the 2014 draft. With his departure, the Bears are now without any first-round draft picks selected by former general manager Jerry Angelo, who ran drafts from 2002 through 2011. Carimi arrived in Chicago as a highly-regarded tackle out of Wisconsin.

So long Chris Williams, you will not be missed. That's a harsh way to say goodbye, but the Bears are still in cleansing mode. Cleansing from the brutal, abysmal record of Jerry Angelo's first-round draft picks. After we say goodbye to Williams, we are left with one. One Jerry Angelo first-rounder on the team (not counting Cutler, whom he traded for). One first-rounder in 11 years of drafts. One. Here's the bad news. It's Gabe Carimi. He's already been badly hurt and he's already mediocre.

From Derrick Rose's Poohdini to Brian Urlacher's barbed wire to Dennis Rodman's ... entire upper body, Chicago athletes have shown a taste for tattoos. The Bears are no different, and while Urlacher's barbed wire bicep may be the best known body art among current Bears, he is barely adorned compared with many of his teammates. Among these are Gabe Carimi and D.J. Moore, who share a passion for images, meaning and ink. RedEye sat down with both players at their homes earlier this season and got the stories behind their tattoos.

He's back. The quarterback who made Bears fans' lives a living hell. The man who can't show his face in Chicago ever again. Caleb Hanie. The Bears will get a heavy dose of their former backup QB as the preseason begins Thursday, though we admit there are much bigger short-term draws, namely the return of Super Bowl XLI villain Peyton Manning. It's also fans' first real look at Brandon Marshall as a Bear. We won't see much of them, unfortunately, but there are a few Bears who must get off to a great start, preseason or not.   J'Marcus Webb The Bears' left tackle was...

It's a tough week to wear orange around here. First, to Champaign. Dear Mr. Zook, the party is over; it's time for you to move on. I realize not everyone can be a football factory like Penn State (ooh, bad example) or Ohio State (ooh, another bad example) or Michigan (a terrible example) but you have to beat all of these teams on their down years, which comes along once every 25 years or so. And you haven't. And you lost your mind at a news conference. Not a good sign.

I guess it's time for some New Year's resolutions that probably won't stick. I wouldn't hold me to any of these because I'm a hypocrite. > > I resolve not to watch the Bears game Sunday or ever again until we get a new general manager and maybe a new coach who isn't comatose after every loss--and even some wins. Hey, look! Josh McCown wasn't that bad (Wasn't that bad, by the way, gets you wins against Denver, Kansas City and Seattle. Playoffs). Five Pro Bowlers? Really? That seems high to me. Though Jerry Angelo's first-ever offensive Pro Bowler Matt Forte (yay!

I do apologize, but I am about to say the six most frightening words ever muttered in Chicago: All the pieces are in place. Please stop screaming. First said in 1996 by then-coach Dave Wannstedt, it - of course - meant the Bears were finally set to make a Super Bowl run. It was a disaster. The QB broke his neck, Bryan Cox was worthless and our kicker was Carlos Huerta. After years of therapy, I have never really recovered from the Wannstedt years. We're talking permanent damage.

Time to take a deep breath, Bears fans. Heading into the bye week, Lovie Smith's team is 4-1. That's a far cry from where it felt the Bears might be after the Packers manhandled them in Week 2. Now they have more than two weeks to heal and game-plan before a Monday night throwdown against Detroit on Oct. 22 at Soldier Field. And now that the dust has settled on the first five weeks of the season, let's see who's trending in the NFC North.   Bears (4-1) Five defensive touchdowns in the past three games.

"If people could see him not just when the cameras are on, yeah, you'd see a different side of him. " That quote from Gabe Carimi came in late September after the loss to the Packers. I was gathering material for a column on what "Happy Jay Cutler" looked like, and Bear after Bear told me Cutler is absolutely a happy, jokey, light-hearted guy - just not always on the field, and not always with the media. Carimi's quote has been in my head for the past month, and during my time around the Bears I've begun to see Cutler's jokey side.

With injuries to guards Lance Louis and Chris Spencer and the loss of Chilo Rachal, the Bears ended last week's game playing Edwin Williams and former starting right tackle Gabe Carimi at guard. To bolster their line, they signed former Dallas Pro Bowler Andre Gurode, who now occupies Rachal's old locker. RedEye sat down with the 33-year-old to hear his thoughts on returning to the NFL, playing for the Bears, and why his major in ethnic studies and double minor in psychology and sociology might come in handy on Sundays.

After two straight crushing losses, especially from an offensive standpoint, the Bears needed time to clear their heads before hosting Minnesota on Sunday. And that in no way was limited to Jay Cutler's concussion situation, though Fox broadcaster Tony Siragusa made light of it during Fox's pregame coverage: Siragusa (to Cutler): "Real quick, how many fingers am I holding up?" Cutler: "Three. " (This appears to be the correct answer.) Siragusa: "All right, you're ready to go. " (Shakes Cutler's hand)

With all the talk about Jay Cutler's emotions, I started thinking: What does a happy Cutler look like? He smiles during news conferences, but they're the kind of smiles Jack Nicholson flashed in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" when he was pretending to take his crazy pill to reassure Nurse Ratched that he was on board with ward policy. So I headed to the locker room after a news conference last week determined to learn more about Happy Jay Cutler. As it happened, I passed Cutler in the hallway.

RedEye asked several Bears who are new to the Packers rivalry what it means to them. Armando Allen, running back (second NFL season, both with Bears) We play them twice a year. Players treat it like every game, just with a little extra spunk. But you know, you want to do your best job in every game. So I think when you look at it like that, it calms things down for us because we try to do the same thing every game. We want to go out there and give it 100 percent no matter what opponent we're facing.

It's been awhile since Bears fans were this giddy about the start of the season, and with good reason. The team appears healthy. Jay Cutler's got tons of weapons on offense. And Urlacher's knee … well, we're not sure what to make of that yet. But even that uncertainty couldn't ruin the excitement of the season opener, and all the firsts that came with it.   PREGAME Bear to run on the field: Brian Urlacher. It's a good sign, even if all he was trying to do was convince the Colts his ailing knee is a non-issue.
