    Well, the Vikings were playing on the field. I thought they got pretty good pressure on Cutler, and we've got a better OL than the Vikings. But I will give it another week. After 2 weeks, Peppers has 1 tackle, 0 assists, 0 sacks. If BigBen isn't planted on his butt, maybe you will join the chorus.

    I'm not making up excuses, as I think the line is pretty bad, but it's undeniable that Soldier Field is horrible for defensive line play.

    I will start worrying about individual statistics of players in a game when the team loses. Then, in my opinion, we can point to who needs to step up.

    Shit storm is right. The phrase shit hitting the fan is overused, but this game had shit hitting the fan all day. It was Gross...MAN. This team is below average after such a total debacle. The win was a lucky one. If we keep getting lucky, we will have another fluke season on our hands.

    The post above mine is why "ignore user" is such a valuable tool.

    Debacle? Cmon. For a team with new coaches, schemes, players, coordinators - I found it amazing that we're in 1st place in the NFC-N (ahead of the Packers) and unbeaten at 2-0.

    Surely you didn't expect anything more than this in the first month of the new team did you?

    Frankly, I'm amazed that the team is playing as well as it is at this early point. I was really pleased with two great comebacks in two weeks. That's what solid teams with heart do. Winners. And under Trestman, the team gutted out a tough win here. This team has a long ways to go. We expected that. Gotta keep it "real" here. This is a rock solid start for a new team under Trestman. We've only had 4 of these 2-0 starts since the early 1990's. And three of those four teams went to the playoffs.

    Relax. Enjoy the wins. Enjoy this season.

    I'll say it first: I was expecting the offensive line to have serious problems by this point, but Trestman called the game plans that he did, to get the rookies over their nerves early (Whereas Lovie would look at a rookie and put him in the doghouse immediately). We should have won this game going away, but little screw ups by the offense here and there kept the Vikings in the game. If anything, the Bears should have won this by at least 10 points.

    I was listening to WSCR 670 on the way home and someone did ask why they hadn't kicked a FG there. IMO the game was over and no use screwing up the win.

    I like the bears to look into another safety. I see Kerry Rhodes out there, I have a feeling we gonna need the help

    per the oline der HB YUP I agree they did rather well ,.... 90 yds rushing Forte ,.... allowed 1 sack

    When they came right back after the LOR TD and Hester set up the O and then they punched to tie ,.. AT WILL

    I was hoping for bigger difference in the game as

    Screw ups on the O , D & STs kept the girls hanging around


    Which again was overcome in the 4th ....

    He wants too much money. I liked him on the Jets, and he was pretty good on the cardinals, but I doubt he comes to Chicago

    Cutler threw some floaters, and one was a pick, that goes back to 2 years ago when he relied a little too much high throws and got way too many picks then. He is capable of zinging that football straight line to a reciever, he should do that a whole lot more, the score would have been far more lopsided Bears way.
    Many times the long flyball works, and then again it does not work. 85 bears worked the line time again with short runs and many measured first downs and dominated the game and time and clock and scores like that.
    So often I keep seeing "Get the fast score" and you try to throw the ball long to try to do it fast.
    Keeping the ball in your control is the key.
    The game is differrent than 85 its about action action action, a hard front line isnt quite doing it.
    But all the things that happenned in this game happen to the best teams as well. To critique this team and they are 2-0? I expected Vikings to be worse and they opened with a kickoff return. Screw that, you better jackhammer back and the Bears did that. The Bears battled it out and came out the victors.

    Pittsburgh please.

    Fair enough. We can compare notes next week. Two Vikings, playing on that field, had more tackles than the whole Bears DL, but give Peterson some credit for that.

    It looked like calvillo was the marching up the field at the end for the win. And he now out with a concusion and watching. I wonder if he watched , it must have been hard on him seeing trest out there marching the team up the field without him.

    Yep, that game was way more "exciting" than it should have been. Even after the opening kickoff return TD, the Vikings should have been blown out in the first half. Dumb mistakes and turnovers kept them in the game and nearly gave it away. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad we won but a better team/better QB would have beat us.

    Can't play like that against Drew Brees or Joe Flacco or Rodgers and expect to win at the last minute. Trestman and Co. has things to clean up.

    Just a game that will ultimately end up to be useless to the doomsayers.

    New HC [​IMG] New OC [​IMG] New DC [​IMG] New schemes [​IMG]
    New TE[​IMG] New OL [​IMG]New MLB/SLB[​IMG] No #54[​IMG]

    & thru it all, areas that need work/mistakes that need corrected, are countered with an ability to wrest control when needed on offense & defense. You can't ask for anything more at this stage & this game will be useless down the road for naysayers as this team will not remotely resemble this particular effort due to the continued growth that's obvious to follow.

    We're way ahead of the learning curve at this point being 2-0 & it's being done not with smoke & mirrors but with a sharp staff & some pretty Damn talented players.

    I feel like a Proud Papa just about now...

    Some fans are doomsayers. They think we have so many problems that we can't make the playoffs. Some fans are Pollyanna. They predict we are going to sweep the Packers this season. Some fans are realists. They understand that our offense is much improved, but they also understand that our DL is under-performing (ditto safety) and will mostly determine how far we go this season. Anyway, it's been fun to read these exchanges between all three categories of fans.
