The Chicago Bears were sent on early vacation after a crushing loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. The Bears finished with an 8-8 record in what is considered an underachieving season. 

Changes to the roster will come, but before the Bears can move forward they must evaluate the team. The offense seems to be on the right track, while the defense needs a complete overhaul.

The loss dropped the Bears to 8-7 on the year, and they will now host the Green Bay Packers this coming Sunday afternoon with the winner taking the NFC North title and moving on to the playoffs.

NFL Draft Picks Who Would Be Instant Starters for the Chicago Bears
Monday, 22 April 2013 00:00    | Written by Chicago Sporting   

With the Senior Bowl in the books and the Super Bowl coming up, it's time to focus on the NFL draft. The Bears hold the 20th overall pick in the first round and could go in a number of different directions. 

General manager Phil Emery has a reputation for evaluating talent at a high level, selecting the best player available and the best player who fits his football team. With that in mind, they may not necessarily go the direction of left tackle like many assume. 

Based on where the Bears are drafting, there are a handful of players who may be on the board at that time who can come in and not only start right away but be a valuable contributor to the team.

Here are five guys from five different positions who can start next season on the Bears.

Report: Chicago Blackhawks to Play Penguins at Soldier Field in March 2014
Sunday, 21 April 2013 22:27   

Pull the knit hats out again, Blackhawks fans.

According to Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Blackhawks are scheduled to play the Pittsburgh Penguins at Soldier Field, home of the Chicago Bears, on March 1, 2014.

The game is part of the NHL's new format for the "Winter Classic."  Instead of playing one outdoor game on New Year's Day, the NHL has scheduled six outdoor games throughout the season.  The typical Winter Classic will go on as scheduled on New Year's Day between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs at Michigan Stadium.

The other reported games are as follows:

Los Angeles Kings vs. Anaheim Ducks; Dodger Stadium, Jan. 25

New Jersey Devils vs. New York Rangers; Yankee Stadium, Jan. 26

New York Rangers vs. New York Islanders; Yankee Stadium, Jan. 29

Ottawa Senators vs. Vancouver Canucks; BC Place, Vancouver, Canada, March 2

BC Place is an outdoor stadium located in Vancouver.  The facility played host to the opening and closing ceremonies for the 2010 Winter Olympics.

The game will be the first outdoor match for the Chicago Blackhawks since their appearance in the 2009 Winter Classic, which saw the Blackhawks fall to the Red Wings, 6-4.

Earlier in 2013, Soldier Field hosted the inaugural "Hockey City Classic," a doubleheader matchup between four college teams.  The Chicago Tribune deemed the Classic "a hit at Soldier Field."

The Blackhawks also skated on the Soldier Field ice and participated in a friendly scrimmage with disabled veterans before the Hockey City Classic.

The NHL has already approved a radical conference realignment for next season, although the Blackhawks and Penguins will remain in separate conferences.

Conditions could have an enormous impact on the proposed game.  According to Weather.com, the average high on March 1 in Chicago is 41 degrees Fahrenheit.  In 1992, Chicago set a record high on that date with a temperature of 73 degrees.  The record low is five-below, set in 1962.
