Personally I don't think they should have pre-season at all. Too risky in Football.
It was a fun game to watch! The O line started out with a Hiccup, so did Cutler but they didn't look as bad as I was expecting. The Defense started out great with 4 man rush, then they eased up in the second half, understandably. Why Lovie threw the Challenge in the 3rd quarter I still don't know. I don't think he knows half the time. But I'm pumped for the season, Marshall looked great, Forte looked awesome and Bush was great too, giving Forte some rest. Jeffry was good too. Devin Hester I think is past his prime, he doesn't seem to know whats going on anymore or everyone else figured him out.
Thursday Thursday Thursday!!! Greenbay!!
Let me preface it by saying the Packers deserved to win. And they won basically on a trick play that happens maybe 1 time a year.
Both teams looked like garbage didnt they? Every aspect of each team looked pretty bad minus the Packers special teams. My thinking is that 3 days between games this early into the season is just stupid.
The refs? They suck [werent the reason Bears lost but come on]
12 men on the field?? ahhh no.
I love how the last INT Cutler threw [wasnt an INT] they didnt even bother challenging just to save time.
On one play the ref said "5 yard penalty on GB replay first down. Oh wait you dont replay first down" then started looking around for confirmation then his mic cut out lol.
Brandon Marshall isnt going to drop easy TD passes like that often.
Briggs wont drop an INT like that in his hands again.
Bennett better relise he needs to come back to the ball
Mclellin looked good. Jennings and Tillma played well.
The 0-Line was horific and is my only real concern. They just werent ready to play 2 games in 4 days at this point. They need to much work.
Is Cutler going to kill Webb before the season is over? See that shoulder bump he gave him??
Sports today sucks. The media always seems to focuse on how one team lost not how one team won.
Cutler was great. The Bears D was awesome. Afters Jay ruffing up his o lineman they have actually done a good job.
But all the media talks about is Romo and 5 seconds of a non issue on the sidelines with Tice
So 4-1 why a bye. Next game at home Monday night 10/22 against Detriot.
O-line better not take any days off in practice. Carimi needs to get it going.
The D has scored more TD then the O [6 to 5] in the last couple games.
This O has so much potential time to shine
I was just talking to me brother and he made a comment I hear all the time [He is a Pats fan]
"I am just waiting for Cutler to screw it up"
In games Cutler has started the last 2 years the Bears are 14-4.
3 years ago they were what 11-5 and in the NFC championship game?
So thats 25-9 and 1-1 in the playoffs. And 26 of those games Cutlers best wide receiver was a converted punt returner.
Yes the defense has obviously been good that last 3 years. but its nationally recognized that Cutler has had no 0-line or WR [until this year].
In Cutler we trust
