Good morning and welcome to Bear Bites, your daily dose of Bears news.
- Jay Cutler's creativity, as shown in a Halloween costume from his college days. It's a fun costume, but it probably made trick-or-treating difficult. (Deadspin)
- Bears president Ted Phillips says the natural grass will remain at Soldier Field because it's a good field. He must have been in the men's room all the times the Bears slipped on the roughshod surface. (Chicago Tribune)
- Lance Briggs has changed his mind on the 18-game season that NFL owners have been pushing. (National Football Post)
- Among football pundits, there is little agreement on who the Bears will draft in the first round. An offensive lineman? A defensive tackle? A ballerina? A cornerback? A deep-dish pizza? They're all on the table. (Windy City Gridiron)
- The lockout is preventing the Packers from designing, much less awarding, Super Bowl rings to celebrate their win. That must mean that they didn't actually win, and the whole happy Packers fans celebrating thing was a dream. Thanks, lockout! (Shutdown Corner)
