Chicago Bears Look Good
Watched the first half of the Bears game tonight - very solid effort. The D looked strong throughout the half, and after a slow start, the offense picked it up and delivered a very good performance. The 98-yard drive to end the first half was great.
It looks like the team is gelling and that Jay Cutler is making some friends on the defensive side of the ball. There was a scene with him and Urlacher talking on the sideline in the second half that I thought was a good sign.
I don't see issues with the receivers, but I have some concern about their secondary. Injuries have been an issue in the preseason at corner and with Danieal Manning (nickel back). There may be some rust on those guys if they return for the start of the season. In two weeks the Bears will be playing Green Bay and they will have to play well in the secondary if they are going to win.
I expect next week to be a week in which the starters only play a series or two. I cannot wait until Sunday night in two weeks - national TV against Green Bay.
