formed a triple loop-double toe near the end of the short,

The Chicago Bears offence has been built around one specific trademark: Size. Last year, the "Monsters of the Midway;" Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Martellus Bennett, combined to haul in 254 passes from quarterbacks Jay Cutler and Josh McCown. The Bears wide receiver core features Marshall, 6-5, and Jeffrey, 6-3, along with Super Bowl XLIII MVP Santonio Holmes. At tight end, Bennett measures as the tallest of the pass-catchers at six-foot-six. Cutler, entering his second year in head coach Marc Trestmans system, is grateful to have the added benefit of receivers who can dwarf defensive backs. "It makes it easy," Cutler told the teams website in training camp. "You kind of just hang balls up there for those guys and they make the play. They all do a really good job of finding the ball in the air and knowing when the back-shoulder [throw] is coming. Weve just got to keep everyone healthy." In 2013, Marshall, Jeffrey and Bennett were all able to stay healthy and play in all 16 of teams regular season games. Cutler, however, was not. The 31-year-old missed five games with an ankle injury, causing a minor quarterback controversy between himself and McCown. However, Trestman made it clear that, when healthy, Cutler was the starter and McCown signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the offseason. Now, facing little competition from backups Jimmy Clausen and David Fales, Cutler is free to think solely on Trestmans offence and improving on last years 8-8 record. After signing Holmes during training camp, the Bears added a new element to their offence; a prototypical slot receiver. Holmes was signed after projected No. 3 receiver Marquess Wilson fractured his collarbone during a practice session. At 6-4, 184 pounds, Wilson fit the Bears mold at receiver, but not the typical look of a slot receiver. Holmes, five-foot-11, caught 23 passes for 456 yards in 11 games last season with the New York Jets in 2013 and could eclipse those numbers with the Bears as defences key in on Marshall and Jeffery. If Cutler can stay healthy, the Monsters of the Midway should be ready for another strong season, after both Marshall and Jeffrey eclipsed 1,000 yards last season. Notes: Depth not their Forte: Behind running back Matt Forte, Bears have no running backs that touched the ball for the team last year. Fourth-round pick KaDeem Carey, veteran Shaun Draughn, undrafted free-agent Senorise Perry and former college quarterback Jordan Lynch are set to backup Forte this season. Should Forte be injured, the Bears will be forced to employ one as the feature back. Defensive Questions: The Bears defence gave up 29.9 point per game last season, second-worst in the NFL. However, the team decided against firing defensive coordinator Mel Tucker, who has promised to implement a new defensive system this year. To help Tucker, the Bears signed defensive end Jared Allen and drafted cornerback Kyle Fuller along with defensive tackles Ego Ferguson and Will Sutton with their first three draft picks in an attempt to improve the defence. The team will also start the year with linebackers Lance Briggs and D.J. Williams healthy, as well as cornerback Charles Tillman after all three missed significant time in 2013.

World champions Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov of Russia grabbed the lead with 83.05 points, Moore-Towers and Moscovitch followed with a personal best score of 71.51 and Ksenia Stolbova and Fedor Klimov of Russia are third at 64.80. "We improved on most aspects of our program," said Moore-Towers of St. Catharines, Ont. "The transitions and connections were the things we really wanted to do better today." Moore-Towers and Moscovitch put their hat in the Olympic medal contenders ring last season placing fourth at the world championships. They opened 2013-14 with a victory at the U.S. Skate International last month. Moscovitch says he wasnt surprised to see a personal best this early in the season. "We knew we were on track to get that score at this point," said the Toronto resident. "Were happy with it even though we didnt skate completely perfectly." Margaret Purdy of Strathroy, Ont., and Michael Marinaro of Sarnia, Ont., are seventh. The pairs free skate is on Sunday. The two couples are Canadas only entries at the competition. Later, Mao Asada of Japan won the womens short program, beating Ashley Wagner. This marked the second straight competition where Volosozhar and Trankov, the reigning Skate America champions, have set a short program world record. Their previous record, 81.65, was set last month en route to winning the Nebelhorn Trophy in Oberstdorf, Germany. Their Skate America performance, to "Masquerade Waltz" by Aram Khatchaturian, was a crisp display of big throws and lifts, unison spins and a triple toe loop, and sophisticated interpretation. The crowd gave the Russians a one-minute standing ovation. "We dont care so much about the world record," Trankov said. "We care more about our personal record, about our seasons best, about our skating. "Its our pleasure to skate good, and to have audience love it. When people stand up out of their seats, and are very loud and clap their hands, we feel it. It is more important thing than the scores." Asada skated cleanly and had 73.18 points. Wagner, the defending Skate America champion from the U.S., was next at 68.26. Elena Radinova of Russia, who is 14 and the reigning world junior champion, was third at 67.01. The long program is Sunday night. Asada boosted her score on the fly, changing her planned program content. She had planned a triple flip-triple loop near the beginning, but went with a triple loop instead. Asada performed a triple loop-double toe near the end of the short, upping her total. Asadas high-technical program had a pleasing, quiet flow. She made an adjustment, turning a plannned triple flip-double loop scheduled for the start to a triple loop-double loop near the end.dddddddddddd Jumps placed in the latter half of a program, when a skater is typically tiring, receive a higher scoring value. "For the past few years, I was not able to perform my best at the first Grand Prix, so I was very happy I was reasonably able to perform a very good performance," Asada said through a translator. "I think it is a very good start for the season." Wagners steady performance revealed her off-season work to improve her difficulty level. Wagner, the two-time U.S. champion, is also the defending Skate America titleholder but was still a technical difficulty level below Kim Yu-na, Carolina Kostner, and Asada coming into this season. Wagners lack of a triple-triple was addressed, and Skate America was the first ISU Grand Prix of the season to display it. Her more mature short program, to Pink Floyds "Shine on You Crazy Diamond," debuted at Skate America with a leadoff successful triple flip-triple toe. When her score of 69.26 was announced, she screamed "Oh!" and then did a little seated shimmy dance. "Going into the flip-toe, I was actually pretty terrified because its a high-risk element for me," Wagner said. "Before I went out there, Rafael (Arutunian) told me, Just go do it, go skate the flip-toe, do it like you know how to. And I just kind of turned the rest off and went into autopilot for the flip-toe and performed it like the way I had in practice. Im happy with that." While Asada and Wagner both impressed, the buzz from the short program was Radionova. She is Skate Americas youngest competitor, and many wondered how she would handle the pressure of the seasons first Grand Prix event. She answered the questions quickly, delivering a clean and confident performance. Radionova is the reigning world junior champion, and dominated the senior-level Nebelhorn Trophy event last month in Germany. She is ineligible for the Sochi Olympics because of her age. "This competition is a new level for me, I did not expect this result. ... I was not nervous, I was really calm and I kept it together really well," Radionova said through a translator. "I think this competition has a big meaning for me." The pairs competition wasnt nearly as close, as Volosozhar and Trankov showed they were at a level above the field. Canadians Moore-Towers and Moscovitch are nearly 13 points behind the leaders. Their throw triple loop was big, but Moore-Towers double-footed the landing. Former junior champions Ksneia Stolbova and Fedor Klimov evoked a Spanish feel in their short program. Their side-by-side triple toes were on par with those of Volosozhar and Trankov. But they lost points by downgrading their opening triple twist lift to a double.
