In the second installment of Crawford's Commentary this spring, staff writer Ken Crawford speaks with two athletes who are vying for starting roles this upcoming season. Fullback Brian Holley, a veteran of the crew who has waited his turn the last couple years, has received the first crack to earn the starting nod. Holley speaks about his progression so far this spring. Crawford also sits down with linebacker Mychal Kendricks and gets his take on the big shoes that he's looking to fill. Crawford also talks a bit about Tuesday afternoon's practice, which saw the Bears get back onto the field after a week off for spring break.
