'D' gets it done for Bears

Success - Article sent! close

Sooo ...

This is how it's going to be, huh?

Quick reactions:

Feeling good about the 'D.'

Feeling lukewarm about the 'O.'

Feeling just a little better 'O'verall, even though a Monday night showdown in Big 'D' is cause for concern.

I cannot believe what I just saw:

The Bears' first play from scrimmage was not play-action pass.

A simple solution:

It looks like Jay Cutler has finally figured it out: When you keep your helmet on on the sidelines, it's hard for the cameras to catch smirky, frumpy or any other look.


Helmet or not, a 58 QB rating ain't going to cut it against top-tier teams.

Early MVP:

Tim Jennings.

Nicely done:

A pregame tribute at Soldier Field and a halftime commercial spot saluting the career of NFL Films president Steve Sabol.


Refs say the darndest things:

Saint Looie?



No shoving, no cursing, no pointing?

I'm guessing that means kudos to you, J'Marcus Webb.

The quote:

"You know who's smiling now? Steve Sabol."

-- Fox analyst John Lynch, after a wild play that featured an interception, a fumble, another recovery and yet another fumble.
